Very nice place to stay. It's kinda hidden but not hard to find. Very clean rooms and nice staff. Was a very good location for us and rays pizza across the street was very good also. We will be staying there again.

The staff at the Thunderbird executive inn were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The pub on the grounds was excellent for food and drink. The rooms were clean and free snacks in the lounge were great!

My experience at the hotel was good. The people there greeted us and then we got the keys. Our room that we stayed in was room 310. The service was great! The hotel was hard to find at first but then we had a guard direct us to the hotel.

nice quiet hotel with friendly staff. It's located in a strange area, on the grounds of a collage so looks a little mis-leading and questionable, but it ended up being a great hotel. I would recommend to others.

Our room was very nice. Trying to find the hotel is a bit challenging but if you read the signs you'll eventually find it. And the lady that greeted us at check-in has worked there too long not very unfriendly. Parking is unique you may have a little walk to your room.

Arrived at the hotel around 5pm. I was not greeted by the man and woman at the front desk until they finished their personal discussion so I stood there uncomfortably for a minute or two, I was the only one in the lobby. After checking me in and giving me my keys they also gave me a map on how...

During several calls to the front desk personnel for directions (when GPS failed to help) did anyone say they were "on" the ASU campus. We had a security guard take us to the Inn. He said this happens all the time. Let's not forget that in making my reservation I was calling Hampton Inn. They also did not mention that...

Just needed a spot to stay after touring the state a few days, before flying out the next morning. This was a nice balance - price was decent, room was very simple and clean, and it was a convenient 20-minute ride to the airport. WWII story of the site was fascinating. I'd come back if I was passing through.

Tucked back and off the street on campus, the Thunderbird Executive Inn & Conference Center is relaxing and comforting. We spent 3 nights before and after our flight to Hawaii and it was just the place to be. The snacks are available 24/7 which suited us with our late night schedules. Staff was professional, room was spacious. We will be...

The place was very clean and staff helpful. Room was updated and had all the normal amenities. Snack bar was awesome. Has chips, bars, teas, coffee, cup of noodle, and a few other things. Several cold drinks too. And it's all free. Location is close driving distance to many restaurants and malls. No walking distance to almost anything though. It's...
