I'm a sucker for old neon signs and the Thunderbird Inn has a great one just as you come off the interstate. I was going to go to a chain but checked them out on line and got a single room for $45. I set my expectations low but I didn't need to. For my $45, I got a large...

Clean rooms, great restaurant buffet with real southern cooking. Front desk staff went way beyond their duty to accommodate me during my stay. Free wifi was spotty but overall a great hotel for the money.

I've stayed at the Thunderbird five times now, on my way from PA to Florida. I like old fashioned style motels, and the Thunderbird is such a motel. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly, and the food is great! You get a FREE BREAKFAST BUFFET with every stay! This is a $20 value!

I decided to take my grandmother up here to get something to eat so she wouldn't have to cook just to give her a break and relax. I should've paid attention to the parking lot because there wasn't many cars outside and I was always taught you can judge a business by how many cars they have outside. Anyways we...

Had misgivings because it's right next to the highway so I asked for a room away from the interstate. We were given a room in the back. HOWEVER, there was a truck parked in the parking lot that ran all night. Hotel and room badly in need of a makeover. Bed was ok, but no shower curtain. Tub was disgusting...

Booked two rooms last night and we got bitten by bed bugs. The guy at the front desk was nasty however it appeared that they wasn't surprised by it. I I really think this place should be shut down and fumagated.
