My friends and I were coming to town for a concert at the Wilma. Most of us travel for our jobs and really get tired of the Corporate Hotels and feeling like a number when there are 200 guest rooms. Upon arrival I was a little apprehensive, I am just not used to staying in older Hotels, let alone a...

I love this place, we stay there often. I love how you are left alone. The parking isn't the best but that really doesn't matter. I love the hot tub rooms. The privacy here is priceless. They make you feel special. However don't expect them to answer their phone they are bad that way.

We had a room with a nice mountain view for under $100. Hotels here seem very expensive. This one was clean, friendly, and maintained pretty well. A couple of cosmetic scratch and dents, but clean and nice. It appears to be a family run operation. The woman running the desk made reference to her son doing a good job maintaining...

I thought the price was a little high for what you get. Our room had a slight musty smell at first. Very large rooms, and the staff is very talkative. A little noisy at night but not bad. Staff is friendly. For 1 night this is ok.

I'm not fussy but this motel didn't meet our expectations! No flat screen TV and the location was close to trains going by at night, it was noisy! It is close some dining if you like fast food as other restaurant had smoking and was noisy as well.

I love the Thunderbird for its consistent affordability and simplicity. It is not a 5 star Hilton but functional. They run a tight ship. Sure the TV is a bit dated but works fine. I do not walk into the room and feel grimy. Parking is tight. If you have an RV you might think again. Albertsons is right next...
