Not the worst hotel I've stayed in. However, I have to say it was not great. Extremely dated, lights were burnt out in the lamps, some of the outlets didn't work and were loose. It was clean but not spotless. The shower left a little to be desired the silicone was showing signs of mold in the corners. Unfortunately, this...

This is an older mom and pop motel. If you don't need all the amenities this is a great little place with lovely firm beds. It is clean and comes with tv, microwave, and frig. We came into town to visit friends and just needed a bed and did not want to pay big bucks for all the bells and...

This was our first time staying at The Thunderbird after many stays in Marysville. It doesn't get much more convenient than parking 4' from your door, no hauling all your luggage through a lobby or up stairs. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was nice having a fridge and microwave, the wifi...

This is a basic motel but I rate it very high as it is very clean and comfortable. We have stayed here several times on trips through town and they have done remodeling. It appears the countertops and carpet are new as well as the bathroom fixtures. Each room has a little refrigerator and microwave. It is quiet and seems...

We booked a room here based on a 5-star review, not expecting much. Boy, were we surprised. Yes, the review was correct -- an older motel, but clean and comfortable. I was a little skeptical when I saw the brown sheets and towels, but they were clean! The pine furniture was homey, the room had a fridge and microwave, and...

This motel is very old. The rooms are small. The internet is slow. The management is extremely rude. Nothing by the motel. It is out in the middle of nowhere. No continental breakfast--just coffee in the morning
