    Is there a pool at the Thunderbird Lodge? Thought I saw something about an indoor pool. Thank you!

    No, there is no pool at Thunderbird Lodge....but there is a beautiful canyon!! :)
    I need advice on a one-night stay in this area. I have a reservation already at the Best Western but saw the Thunderbird after making it. Can anyone advise as to Thunderbird vs. Best Western? I am assuming the Holiday Inn is in third place but could ask about it as well. I appreciate advice. I can cancel the BW rez at any time and it is for late August. Thank you!

    Planning a trip to your area in late April. We are traveling in an electric car. Is there any type of exterior electrical outlet we could use to charge our car overnight? Will pay for the privilege. Thanks.
