The bed I slept on (king) was one of the most comfortable pillow tops I have EVER slept on in a hotel! (I travel ALOT!) You are across from the bus station...expect some noise! With that being said...the furninshings were starting to show some serious wear/tear and the chairs had some kind of gooey stuff on the arms...my housekeeper was...

Thank you so much for your review. I'm glad you loved the inn and our rockin' beds! We love our military and all they do for us so we try to give back when we can. I hope you'll come see us again soon! Mark Thomas General Manager

This sounds like a cool kitschy place but the truth is it was a dump. The toilet didn't flush in the first room and the room they moved us to was even more shabby than the first room. Old stained linens and the water pressure needs to be addressed. The whole place needs a total makeover. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

Really liked the hotel, super friendly staff. My only complaint is our room was located next to the ice machine and it was a little loud at times. Be advised they do charge $7.50/night for parking in their own lot. They comped this charge for us, however, as we were on our honeymoon. Also be aware that they do not...

This retro style place has a great location, friendly service, and clean rooms. Needs TV 's upgraded and better lighting in rooms. WiFi worked good. The city trolleys and transportation is very close by. Walking distance to downtown.

Really close of river St, 4 blocks away of main restaurants in the town, clean, friendly staff. The weather was cold, but the heater is working perfect, the lamps, lights are in good conditions. The wifi service works in average speed. The room is clean and they give lotion, shampoo and conditioner. Just make sure you take hand soap. You...

I was very much satisfied with my stay in the Thunderbird Inn. It is conveniently located just few blocks away from most major attractions. The city's transportation hub is across the street (including the free trolley bus). The main visitor center (where you also find most tours originating) is about 4 short blocks away. The price was very affordable. The...

Stayed here on a recent holiday touring the east coast of America. Loved this place and loved this motel! The motel is retro, with such fabulous staff who are so genuinely pleased to help you. Motel is a short walk from the river walk -with lovely, lively bars and restaurants. Great place to stay!

We needed somewhere to stay on our trip to Florida. This place was perfect. Close to everything and the price was fabulous! They have this funky 60's theme going on, and they also give you a moon pie!
