    I need advice on a one-night stay in this area. I have a reservation already at the Best Western but saw the Thunderbird after making it. Can anyone advise as to Thunderbird vs. Best Western? I am assuming the Holiday Inn is in third place but could ask about it as well. I appreciate advice. I can cancel the BW rez at any time and it is for late August. Thank you!
