Stayed at this hotel this past weekend. I actually live in the area but no air conditioning at the home and my family and I need to get some A/C. Thought this place was a good idea, good price for 80.00 for one night. My husband had reserved a room with a king bed but was told it was not available anymore and had to get double beds??? We get there room inside is tidy and cleaned, except the fact the furniture was ratted and the armoire's bottom shelf was broken. First thing my husband does is turn on the A/C unit. It works but only on one side, and the piece on top of the A/C, that angles the air flow, was broken plus the air was cool, not cold. Secondly, the shower. My husband and I could not get the shower on, because the attachment to the shower from the handle, was broken off the wall. We were trying to push it in the wall to see if would hook on something so the water can go from the tub to shower...but no success...had to resort to a BATH :/ Turned the water on and waited forever for the hot water to come, but never did. We had the handle all the way turned to hot but it was only warm, if that. Every time I used the toilet the toilet seat would jiggle around. Finally after going for the 4th time the seat popped right off the toilet, to the ground.
To top it off, we brought our bathing suits to swim but was told by the front desk that no one is allowed to go over there, that they had no "handicap" signs up something. So pool was off limits. They've had the pool for how long, and they have no signs??? i figured it was crap they were telling us and the pool was not clean. How can they not keep it up to standards, especially during the summer...
Thunderbird Lodge is nice to see on the outside but its just a whole front. Beware of a deal that is too good to be true. Most of the time you get screwed over on something or a few things.
