Score from 20 reviews Review score 5.9/10
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 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
Darkness of room
Easy to find in town, good value clean and tidy would stay again this was our second stay there .
To many one way streets.
Price and staff
The rooms was oddly laid out No real closet or place for clothes. Had small table and chairs but nothing else. TV old school
located close to all services
The shower would not turn on fully and was not usable, my wife took a bath and I had to wait till our next hotel.
So clean and friendly. Yes it's older but nicely maintained. And the friendly staff make your stay so nice. Easy to find. Great value for your travel dollar.
