Good room for the price.Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: Great price.
Cons: The bed pillows are aweful....way too flat.
Location: Easy to find and close to all major area attractions.
I chose the Thunderbird Motel because I was looking for a cheap but decent room to sleep in for one night after enjoying a band at the nereby Pumphouse Bar. The check in was smooth considering it was a young boy (10 or 12) at the desk with his dad nearby. The room was clean and the flat panel TV was nice and had a great selection of TV stations. This is an older family run motel, but it is a great value considering how cheap the room was. Really my only complaint would be the bed pillows. The pillows are really flat and there were no extra pillows in the room.

Cheap and ConvenientPosted Jan 31, 2015
Pros: Conveniently located, inexpensive
Cons: Higher shower head, make sure to replace towels and shampoo for multi-day stays, didn't see a box of tissues in the room. What is that smell?
Location: There's a bowling alley right next door... if you're into that. I went there cause my usual motel was book for a weekend at Devilshead Ski Resort.
Well, the location is right; near Devilshead, and between Log Cabin and Joses; my favorite restaurants when I go up there. The room was clean, although it had a funky odor.. like the rug had been cleaned or something; not overwhelming. Microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. The shower head is made for people 5' ft and under (ok, maybe 5' 5" but if you're 6'3" it hits you about nipple height... if you're a guy), but water pressure is good and flows plenty. The beds were covered with a plastic lined mattress cover, and it crinkles like it's plastic when you lay down on it, but there was enough of a pad over it that it still breathed. We stayed two nights, and the towels did not get replaced and we didn't get a new packet of shampoo.. I'm guessing no one came into the room. Guess I could have asked for more towels and shampoo... didn't care that much. I paid $50 without tax. At that price it's good enough for me.

Posted Oct 7, 2014
Pros: We liked the friendly service and receprtion.
Cons: Larger towels
The hotel is a vintage 50s/60s motor inn. The manager was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and very willing to give directions and other tips. Both the next doo restaurant and the Mexican restaurant done the road were enjoyable. The room was comfortable and smoke free.

The hotel location was easy to find.Posted Oct 2, 2014
Pros: Low price.
Location: Circus World Museum, International Crane Foundation, and Devils Lake State Park are only minutes away.
We chose Thunderbird because it did not offer and charge for frills that we didn't want and wouldn't use.

Clean and quietPosted Sep 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
Located on the main street, but was very quiet. Room was clean but bed linens and towels could do with some updating/replacement. Fridge and microwave were handy. Staff was friendly and helpful, and although I didn't use it, they have a discounted breakfast at the family restaurant next door. Would stay here again.
