Got the job done; snazzy signage

With its cool retro-esque motel sign, you'd think this place would be decorated in accord with that style, but no. It is a basic motel with some interior retro-esque finishes. It was alright overall and a decent deal on price. It was close to the Sundial Bridge and "downtown". I did hear the train go by twice in the middle of the night, which woke me up but didn't phase my toddler or husband.

Comfortable overnight stay

We needed a place to stay overnight while driving from Yosemite NP to Portland and this place served us well. Spent a comfortable night - good value for the money spent. Front desk person was pleasant to deal with.

Great place for the money

We stayed one night at the Thunderbird. For being downtown the noise was not too bad. The motel has been recently remodeled and our room looked fantastic. Very clean and comfortable. All the furnishings were new. The only downside is the a/c was an old unit that should be replaced. It blew cold air right over the bed the way it was situated and if you turned it off it got too stuffy. It was also pretty loud. Other than that if you don't need the a/c it is a beautiful room. It was in the 90's when we were there.

There are many restaurants on Hilltop and Cypress that are very good. There looked like some good ones downtown within walking distance also.

Good travelers stay

The room wasn't over the top but it was a good stay for overnight. Lots of restaurants around the area and most everything is in walking distance.

Redding gem

We spent three nights at the Thunderbird Lodge whilst doing some fishing this January. Very friendly and courteous staff at check in. Room was clean, neat, and comfortable. We did not have the opportunity to enjoy their (being remodeled) breakfast room but have enjoyed it on previous stays. This is a real bargain in downtown Redding. My three criteria for good lodging anywhere is clean, convenient, and safe. This meets them all.

Decent Hotel

The hotel looked a little old on the outside but the rooms were nice. I was a little disappointed in my late checkup request only being until 11:30. It wouldnt have been a big deal but we checked in at 11PM at night and with a 2 year old it was very tough to get up and get her ready. Only other complain was there was no bath only a shower.
