“Excellent value for money.”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

We stayed here for a trip to the Dells and Devil's Lake State Park. It's about a twenty minute drive to the Dells, which was close enough for our plans. It was very cheap, very clean, reasonably spacious, and the room had a fridge and a microwave. The wireless internet worked great the first day, not at all the second day (I'm not sure what was up; the owner also seemed unsure). My only complaint is they forgot to make up the room. For a clean room at $60/night I'll forgive a fair amount, though.

Be sure to eat at Jose's Mexican, right down the street -- the food is fantastic.

Inexpensive - good restaurant right next door and free shuttle to Ho Chunk casino. What else does one need ? Enjoyed our one night stop in Baraboo on the way to Milwaukee. Very convenient to I-94. Nice folks working there as well

Upon check in the man at the front desk let me check out the room to make sure I liked it. I did. It was very clean, had a microwave, fridge,coffee maker and alarm clock. The room was quite roomy and I got around it no problem and there was plenty of room to put our stuff. Each day they gave us what we needed (towels, coffee stuff, ect). At night we accidentally locked ourselves out and had to call and they were very prompt to unlock our door.There is a park/common ground across the street where you can walk your dog and plenty of good areas to walk him too. Very convenient location and walking distance to restaurants, and a supermarket-gas station.

Room Tip: They do not provide continental breakfast here. They are pet friendly.

This hotel met all our needs and was within easy driving distance of all the water parks of the Wisconsin Dells. Alice at the front desk was so sweet and full of information for our stay. The rooms were extremely clean. The place was quite. We traveled with our two dogs and it was never a problem. The owner really takes a lot of pride in his facility. This hotel was an outstanding value for our traveling family. A little of the beaten path, but highly recommended.

We've been staying here for long weekends about 3 years now. You can't beat the price for the area. The room is very basic, but is clean. We typically visit the area not for the "touristy" stuff, but to enjoy the nearby state park. This place is just perfect for us. The low price allows us to afford several long weekends each season.

Had a wonderful weekend in the Dells area watching my son play baseball. It was a last minute decision to make the trip, so I was anticipating paying more for lodging. The Thunderbird was the only hotel I found in the area that didn't "gouge" me on Fri. and Sat. Other hotels had rooms for a good price on Thurs., but then doubled the rate on Fri/Sat. I would have never been able to make the trip if I had not found the Thunderbird. Good, clean room. Quiet, and when I had a problem with internet connection, the owner went out of his way to tell me he would have it fixed shortly(and it was). Thank you!! A very memorable weekend.
