sheduled a deposition in Glendale area and after booking the hotel called about the conference rooms. Staff was exceedingly helpful, fees reasonable and the included amenities were extraordinary. Rooms were very nice. Hotel staff friendly and great to work with. Will look for reasons to come back to this area and stay here again.

We were so pleased with our stay. Rooms were very nice and comfortable. Staff were all exceptional. We loved looking at all the pictures depicting the history of Thunderbird and going up in the control tower. The unlimited snacks and drinks in the lounge was a huge bonus. Would highly recommend this hotel and just a short drive to the Dodgers Spring Training camp,

Room Tip: We stayed in the main section on 2nd floor in King Size room. Close to lounge.

The rooms were appointed nicely. Loved the huge walk in shower. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was very friendly. my only issue was the parking availability. There are very few parking places close to any of the rooms. We unfortunately were there during a huge storm. We had to park quite a distance from the room and got soaked in the process of getting to our room. Other then that it was a wonderful experience and would recommend it to friends and family.

Thank you for your recent stay at the Thunderbird Executive Inn! I'm very sorry to hear that you had difficulties with finding parking while on-site. Although there are many areas around campus to park, I understand during a rare rain storm in Phoenix, parking in front of your room would have been ideal. I'm sorry for any inconvenience that caused. I'm thrilled to hear that other than that, you enjoyed your room, the amenities and all that Thunderbird has to offer. Please visit us again in the future! We look forward to seeing you again, soon.

I am a motel girl. I don't spend much, but I do like nice places. This is the place. Great for the price. I stayed 5 days and the inn was definitely a home away from home. The Inn was elegant and I will forever stay here when down in the Glendale area. The staff was wonderful. Rosa was the house keeper and she was always willing to give us extra towels and extra garbage bags. She was pleasant and helpful. Every time I came through main door, either to come or go, I was always greeted with a hello or a have a good day. The staff was helpful and always willing to help me. I had a headache one night and they quickly brought me some medicine. The rooms were always clean and the TV was excellent to watch at the end of a long day. The bathroom was big, and had room to move around in it so you didn't fell you were being closed in. The only negative would be that there was no bathtub and that there was no place to put my shampoo and conditioner bottles. They have a soap dish, but they had to be laying down otherwise the bottles would fall on the floor. A hanging shower caddy would be nice to have.
The amenities were excellent!! They were always available at all hours of the day. I was lucky to have a room just down from the commons room, so it was easy to get something at any time. There was always plenty of water (even when you come in the main doors at the front desk, they have water sitting there for you to take). There was juices and soda, milk for the mornings half and half for coffee (I don't drink that though) The ice machine was right there also, so I was always able to have ice water. There was cold cereal in the mornings, and soup in the afternoons and evening. There was apples both at the front desk and in the commons room. There was snack bars and popcorn. A microwave was provided as well in the commons room. I thought that was going to be a problem because it wasn't in the room, but it was no hassle to go to the commons room when needed. Over all I was very impressed and extremely pleased at how wonderful the Thunderbird Executive Inn and Conference Center was. It is the place and I would recommend it to my family (I would say my mom, but she was with me for this trip) This is the place to choose when down in the Glendale area. Nothing but good from this place! You will not regret staying here.

Room Tip: The room with a king size bed on the second floor is close to the commons room, perfect distant. No noise and close to the amenities.

After reading the reviews from other hotels that included issues of safety and cleanliness, I was impressed with the positive reviews on these points about Thunderbird. It is all true. What a great place to stay at a very competitive price. The open "help yourself" snack shop with soda, snacks, and fruit was a fun surprise. We will definitely stay at the Thunderbird Executive Inn for all future trips to Phoenix.
