Nice start, Details lacking

Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. There was virtually no noise from outside-it's in a quite area and off the main street. The details: someone"s commode and shower were incredibly loud (I suspect the room above me). There was no coffee left packet in the room for my second day, I was able to get one from the desk. The internet connection was slow. On their computer, so slow I couldn't download a PDF file, it timed out. (granted, it was 4.9 mb). The airport wasn't very busy, but the jets were loud enough to bother a sensitive sleeper trying to sleep in. Overall, I think yo should be able to do better for the money-then again, this is Scottsdale.

Spring training getaway

Perfect for our spring training getaway! Just far enough away from the crowds, and an easy 20 minute drive to Scottsdale stadium. Staff was very accommodating and friendly!

Great value, clean & comfortable hotel

Hotel is a updated older hotel located next to Scottsdale airport in a industrial park. The two room suite was large, clean and comfortable with breakfast included each day. Up scale shopping and restaurants located within walking distance. Will definitely stay at Thunderbird Suites again.

family vacation to meet my grand daughter

very nice location--only 15 minutes away from my son, who lives in Arizona. i liked that there was a door seperating the bedroom from the rest of the hotel room. 2 tv's were great! the bathroom was a litle small but workable.The bed was a little hard for my liking but not too uncomfortable-was still able to sleep. The staff was very friendly and helpful. would definately stay here again.

It served it's purpose well

I was just out in town for a few days and this place had everything I needed. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. The complimentary hot breakfast each morning was a nice surprise. The amenities were nothing special, but again, cleanliness and friendly staff offsets bigger pool, workout facilities, etc. A good value for the money.
