wonderful place to stay.motel is an updated,1960s style resort.....There is much to be said for maintaining,rather than destroying resorts from this era......look at Wildwood,NJ.......much better than the new hi rise condos etc of Ft Lauderdale which rejected the regular family vacationer......

We stayed here for a family vacation. I would not recommend this resort to anyone. Puke was all over the backside of our bedroom door. The smell was horrible! Customer Service was very poor! The pool was not very clean. We left the resort went to Clear Water!

My aunt, mom and I stayed at The Thunderbird the week between Christmas and New Year 2016.

I booked this hotel specifically for the retro feel....
