      The rooms were nice. Only downside was no blankets and not enough towels. As soon as I asked for towels I received them right away. The pool didn't stay open late enough for us. I would have liked it to stay open until 11 instead of 9pm. At least then you could get in after you went to the boardwalk. Overall a great time.

      The Thunderturd motel

      Not at all what we expected. When we walked in the Room we had to plug all the lights in ourselves, We had to have a key card in a slot in order to turn on the air conditioner, The step up into the bathroom was high up and every time you walk in the bathroom you almost broke your toe, The bathroom was incredibly small things to the point where I've seen bigger bathrooms in an RV, The beds were comfy enough to remind me of the one night I stayed in prison, we would have called down to the office to address the issues, Until we realized that we didn't have the phone required to call down, just the phone cord. Entire state was so unsatisfactory that my girlfriend gave me a beating reminiscent of what happens to a piñata at a 5 year old's birthday party. Also none of the staff seemed to know how to wear their masks properly in the middle of a pandemic, We really didn't like that but you know who does? The coronavirus does. Over all I think the best course of action for the future of this hotel is for the Hilton next door to purchase the entire establishment so they can expand their parking options or add a 4th pool.

      Bad Hotel

      The rooms were very small for the price we paid. The pool closed too early. Their was a leak in the bathroom ceiling over the light that is a fire hazard. Not enough outlets to plug in devices. Beds were not big enough and were hard. Bad phone conection in room had to plug in the phone. Lights were not plugged in and missing bulbs.

      Clean & enjoyable

      Our car broke down on the way out of town after we’d already checked out of our last hotel. Thunderbird had two side by side rooms for the night. They were clean and comfortable. The kids loved the pool. The next morning staff was extremely accommodating in allowing us a late checkout on one of our rooms until our car was fixed shortly after lunch. Great place.
