I made a reservation and decided to cancel it. Went to the website to cancel, put in my name and reservation number. There was absolutely NO PLACE on that site to cancel. I then called the motel and fellow that answered told me to go thru Booking.com to cancel in which I did. When I gave Booking.com my reservation number...

OK clean place to stay, nothing fancy. Woman that checked us in did not understand English to well. I asked for an "end unit" and she did not know what that was. We had asked for 2 beds but got a room with one bed and a treadmill. But they did correct it right away when I asked. The price...

Located on the eastern side of Baraboo, miles from the freeway but close to the Circus Museum. Rooms are clean and seem to be in good repair. Good TV and Wi-Fi. Nice place to walk the dog out back across the street. Lots of construction workers stay here so it can get a little noisy in the morning. There is...

If you are just looking for a place to sleep in Baraboo for a night or two, the Thunderbird will get the job done. We were down visiting for our grand-daughter's birthday party and stayed here. Plenty of room, nice tv, serviceable bathroom, easy access and a very reasonable price. The ice machine was broken, but we didn't need any....

Go ahead and stay here if you want your clothes, everything in your suitcase, your hair, and your lungs to close shut from the stale horrible stench of cigarettes! Tried two different rooms and both smelled horribly! THEN, when we decided to leave because I couldn't breathe the manager wouldn't refund our money!!! Poor customer service!!! Wouldn't recommend this place...

This is a 1970's style two story outside entry mom and pop motel. In overall very good condition inside and out. My room was clean and equipped with a refrigerator, microwave and small flat screen TV. With two queen beds there was barely enough room for the table and chairs to fit between one bed and the ventilator unit and...

Good location, good price, but we won't stay here again. It was a good thing we had 2 beds and only needed one, because the bedding on one of the beds smelled strongly like urine and we moved to the other bed after realizing the problem. The Room we had #109 needs a thorough cleaning with all bedding stripped and...

We stayed here for two nights for the closing of the Dells and the room was very clean and simple. Everything worked well and as I prefer a motel with an exterior room entry, I felt it had a very cozy feel to it!

We stayed at the Thunderbird Motor Inn for two nights this past July. It is a very basic motel with few amenities. The room did have a microwave and refrigerator. The room appeared clean and the bed pretty comfortable. Overall it was a place to sleep nothing more. Small things, like new towels, could increase our overall impression of this...

... an impromptu overnight led us back to Baraboo and this quaint little motel. It looks like a shady lady -- but let me tell you, the updated room and fast, quality check in was WONDERFUL. [We'd spend two nights in a 'chain' hotel in Dubuque, IA and we NOT satisfied at all!!] The room was clean, the beds comfortable....
