All as per expectations
All as per expectations
The location was excellent.
There were maintenance, cleanliness, and sanitation issues in the room that should have been clearly visible to staff when readying the room for rental. Room rates and check out times were not posted in the rooms. The ice bucket had no sanitary liner in the bucket, there was no flat space in the bathroom to set anything, no plastic glasses were provided int eh bathroom, and there was no vending machine for ice. There was no lock on the window. Things appeared worn, poorly maintained, and dirty.
The price was awesome and the rooms were spotless! We had 2 rooms with 2 queen beds and 3 of the 4 beds were soft, the 4th was hard. The coffee in lobby was not good, would love to see coffee pots in each room. Overall cleanliness is A+ and we will definitely stay there again.
Coffee in lobby was bad
Very pleasant staff, clean, provided everything I needed, located on Route 30. I'd stay there again.
Cinderblock walls a bit reminiscent of a college dorm...but not paying for ambiance. Poor sound insulation and rowdy men in surrounding rooms. They did Not keep me awake.
Large clean rooms, good beds Old style motel park in front of room. Great for overnight stay.
Easy access from the interstate.
Many repairs needed in the room(lamp did not work, desk area needs repair). Temperature of the shower fluctuated drastically. Stained sheets and hairs found on towels. Poor work from housekeeper in overall cleanliness of the room(windowsill, bathroom)
Big room Friendly Clean enough EASY TO FIND
A bit dated People sanding around ouside smoking
I will be staying at this hotel in the future. The price was just right and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff will make you feel safe and welcomed. I am thankful for roadside havens like the Thunderbird.
The staff was very nice...clean rooms....
I didn't like it that it was really far off the trail.......I almost thought we were lost. It's also on a one way street....and a motor home was blocking the way we turned down the street and got hooked at talk about being embarrassed! No shampoos and stuff take your own..... it's like an up grade to a motel 6....
The neighbors next
It seemed like several customers were permanent residents as they took 3 of the 4 washers and then commented when we came in that they could have done their laundry anytime but were told the visitors would be in later in the evening to do a load of laundry.
Slamming of doors ALL night long! No back support from the bed mattress. Wifi not with in range to use.
Location, comfortable beds
No refunds.... Even if you check out early and are a good customer and rented from the hotel directly.
Everything and everyone was great. The accommodations covered all basic needs, and the PRICE WAS RIGHT!
Slow-running drain in the bath tub.
Very friendly and helpful staff
Beds and pillows sucked
Ease of location, Kay the receptionist was very helpful, it was exactly what we were expecting - we weren't expecting a marriott 5 star room, but it worked perfectly for us to roll into town around 11pm, have a place to lay our heads and get up in the morning refreshed. I would stay there again.
Smell of the room was kind of stale, some of the outlets did not work.
I liked that it was cheap and decent. Staff was friendly
I didn't like finding small black hair in the bottom of my "just cleaned" tub or the dirty water spots around the sink on the counter.
Friendly and helpful staff. Good rates
Bed was hard
Room was big; room had character; room had charm. Immensely enjoyed the stay. Do not let the outside "view" of the hotel deter your decision to stay.
Looked like a rat's nest on the outside...but the rest of the stay made up for it.
The people upstairs - no sound insulation.
Old, in need of repair, bath mat may have technically been clean but was moldy looking. Carpets felt sticky. I couldn't wait to leave.
The manager, Kay, was so friendly and helpful and compassionate. I will definitely be staying again.
Location close to Idaho State University, friendly desk clerk, decent parking, decent rates. Decent water pressure.
Older, bare bones motel, pretty much everything in the rooms could use upgrade.
the lady was real nice and cordial
looked like they had turned several rooms into apartments but had the appearance of several vagrants wondering through. room was outdated and musty smell, but clean.
Location, good value
