Stayed at the BW Scottsdale Thunderbird Suites for a spring break getaway. The hotel was very clean. Pool was in excellent condition. Room was comfortable with 1 BR suite, king bed and living space with kitchenette. Spent our days by the pool and evenings at the ball parks. It was conveniently located to everything we needed. It is across the...

Reviewed 16 January 2017

This Best Western served us well. We were on the road all day and need a hotel for the night before heading to the Phoenix airport the next morning. I had pre-booked the hotel, for the price and that it was close to a shopping mall. We would only have the evening, so all we could fit it would be...

My family recently stayed 5 nights inbetween 2 rooms and wanted to say what a great property this was. Besides location and being close to so much, the hotel offered a perfect home away from home. We loved the heated pool & hot tub area, our beds were very comfy and A/C's worked great. Kuddos to the housekeepers who did...

Staying in the area for some pilot training. The hotel was great, the location is awesome if you're doing any sort of business at the airport as it is directly across the street from the terminal and most of the aviation businesses.

Location is a huge plus for the Thunderbird, located directly across the street from the Ross Aviation facility, you can literally walk off an airplane and straight to the hotel. The hotel features a restaurant and bar. The building is older, but well maintained and the rooms are nicely updated

This hotel is old. It's a $49-99 a night facility that charges more than $250 during the spring. The location is airport close but not near enough old towne scottsdale to demand the prices. Rooms are clean but furniture, paint are old and dank. Save some money and stay outside Scottsdale or spend a little more and stay at a...

Our 2017 visit to Scottsdale started with a stay at BW+TBS. We came back this year because we enjoyed it so much in 2016. I can't say enough about this place. At least 3 of the staff recognized us from our visit last year. The food in the Silver Wings Grill is excellent and Lori (bartender) is absolutely a gem....

Very nice experience of staying at Best Western Plus Scottsdale Thunderbird Suites. We had a regular suite which is a one bedroom suite with a kitchenette in a seating room; two big comfy beds in a bedroom. Our room was clean and everything was in order. The staff during breakfast was very attentive and helpful. I would stay there again...

Although I wasn't in the room much, it was always clean and ready for me. The staff were pleasant and personable. It was wonderful to have someone to shuttle me to/from a restaurant in the evening so I didn't have to drive. Breakfast was above average (except I'm never ready to see corned beef hash on a breakfast buffet) and...
