Thunderbird Lodge

Recent guest reviews

Close to restaurants; served our purpose which is a pretty good place spend yhe night for our 4 states road trip!

A motel-like facility in a noisy area. The room was ok, but the fridge hadn't been cleaned out from previous guests and the water pressure and wifi was weak. The AC unit is oddly placed in the closet area, where the air is partially cut off by a divider wall. We didn't bother bringing it up with staff because the woman who checked us in was testy as all get out, like we had bothered her at her house. Free breakfast had been a selling point when selecting this lodge, but all they offered was basic bread/bagels/danishes and cheap cereal.

This hotel isn't bad. The room is a good size for one person or a very affectionate couple. The furniture is contemporary and appears to be new. The bed is pretty comfortable. Offers free WiFi and few continental breakfast options (bring your on butter, they have several jam options). The location is central to most things in Redding. The drawbacks are a noisy toilet, limited parking and thin walls, so pack your earplugs.

The staff were amazing, the hotels were absolutely immaculate. The noise was the worse I have ever experienced at a hotel, which is saying a lot because I spend time on location sites for oil rigs. This was far noisier than that!

Easy quick check in. Hotel staff nice. Air conditioner is really old and made lots of noise. It was a good one night stay.

Nice place to stay but there's about 8 dumpsters right nextdoor that are serviced at 6:00am on Tue. morning. The engine, dumping and back up sirens of the truck woke my whole family.

Room was nice and clean. Comfortable bed. TV with plenty of channels to chose from. Decent continental breakfast. Swimming pool is a plus. Good reasturants right across the street.

This hotel felt safe. It wasn't in a loud area, and it was quite close to a LOT of good eats. The bed wasn't the greatest thing in the entire world but it wasn't horrible. My wife and I summed up our feelings on the room by saying multiple times: It's just clean. No nasty spider webs in the corner or dust everywhere or dirt... It was just very clean. Which was comforting for sure! If you're in the area and you don't need a 15-star hotel, stay here!!

ThIs served us well as we were attending events in the city of Redding.

Stayed at this hotel during our recent visit to Burney falls. Overall it's an okay place to stay for a night. Major problem was with the Air conditioner making rattling noise the whole night.

Convenient place with continental breakfast and a Mexican restaurant just next door when visiting Redding, CA and nearby attractions: Whiskeytown NP with hiking trails to waterfalls for family from easy to moderate levels, Shasta Dam with free tour, Sundial Bridge and more.

I THOUGHT THIS HOTEL WAS VERY NICE ESPECIALLY FOR THE PRICE, AWAY FROM NOISY FREEWAYS. THE CLERK WAS NOT VERY FRIENDLY NEVER SMILED AND DID NOT SEEM TO CARE THAT WE WERE THERE. TELEPHONE IN ROOM DID NOT HAVE AND NUMBERS TO CALL FOR SERVICE, NO BOOKLET TO TELL US ANYTHING ABOUT HOTEL, COULD NOT FIND WHERE CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST WAS SERVED NO ONE ANSWERED BELL AT FRONT DESK. VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE BED.

Very nice and cozy hotel.its in the center of town,close to restaurants,easy off and on to highway .definitely recommend

One night stay was OK. Shower did not drain properly

Definitely meet the expectation for what we paid. it wold be my budget hotel if i am visiting this place again.

was nice and quaint. was sick so we stopped and stayed there, it was great.

The hotel was surprisingly comfortable. Recent renovated rooms were nice. The rooms included new furniture, comfortable beds, new carpet and very clean. I enjoyed Redding's warm weather. I enjoyed Redding's Bethel Church, a wonderful place to hang-out. Beautiful scenic city. I left refreshed.

If you are looking for a nice clean place for not a lot of money... the Thunderbird is a great choice! I would stay again!

Returning from the pacific north west, was a clean, comfortable, hotel. Friendly staff, good location. Can't beat this value.

Good location near downtown and freeways. Good parking. Walking distance to restaurants. Nice continental breakfast. Good clean rooms. My only complaint was the noise. The noise came right into my room from outside and from room next door.
