This motel is great for the price. Very clean rooms that looked to be very recently updated, but also had character. My room had a wood floor, and my friend's upstairs had lofted A-frame ceilings. Bathrooms look brand new. Tv and microwave and mini fridge are new. Convenient location. Ample parking. Much better than I can hope for in this... More

Nice place to stop off on a long road trip! Clean rooms with friendly staff and reasonably priced. We'll be back through again next year for sure. The kids especially liked the look of the hotel versus your normal chain motel.

My husband and I stayed for two nights to visit family over Thanksgiving. My mother & stepdad also stayed for one night in a separate room. We were in different buildings, they were by the office & we were in the other section by the restaurant. Both rooms were recently painted and in great shape. Very clean. This is a... More

The Thunderbird was offering a good deal, so I decided to visit again (I reviewed it four years ago) The woman at the front desk was very helpful and changed my room to one on the first floor so I wouldn't have to lug my enormous suitcase up the stairs in a downpour. This is a vintage hotel that has... More

Very clean, comfortable accommodations in downtown Redding. We usually stay in the Hilltop area. This location is walking distance to cool features of Redding including the Cascade Theater. Great breakfast restaurants nearby. 24-hr donut spot around the corner. Happily sacrificed pool/hot tub for downtown walking exploration.

Updated recently, but carpets were dirty, beds had an unclean odor. Saw homeless dudes, not enough parking until the restaurant closes. I guess it is ok for one night but I should have paid the extra thirty bucks and gone somewhere else.

Booked a pet-friendly room online. Staff was friendly and the room was convenient and very clean. The room was convenient to the restaurant next door (which was very good). The continental breakfast was very good with lots of variety. The facility if also convenient to the freeway. As a travel agent I recommend this to all travelers - especially to... More

When visiting Redding, CA, I looked online for reviews and chose the Thunderbird Lodge because of the location and price. We reserved a room with a king size bed and requested the 2nd floor non-smoking. We were pleasantly surprised to find a room with all the amenities we like, microwave, refrigerator, very comfortable bed, good sized TV with an HD... More

Stayed here to take husband to a concert for his birthday at the Cascade theater. This hotel is within a short walking distance from the theater, great restaurants and bars. Hotel is clean, staff is very nice and quick check in. The pictures online of the room are true to what they look like.

Looking for something inexpensive and found Thunderbird Lodge. I was expecting it to be a little rough but was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. Looks like it was freshly painted and the rooms were clean and comfortable.
