My husband and I decided to take in a few Padres Spring Training baseball games and found this gem of a hotel to stay at. Our room was really clean and well designed with a great desk for us to set up our laptop. The snack room is always open and generously stocked. Each and every employee that we encountered...

The Thunderbird Inn is on a college-like campus with nice landscaping. The rooms are tasteful and spacious. An evening snack and a continental breakfast are provided in the lounge area. The rates are lower than many similar area hotels. Good value and location.

We stayed 3 nights recently and enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The value for the dollar was very reasonable. The 24 hour snacks and drinks were a very pleasant experience. We will be back next year for spring training again and will be staying here again!

We have been wanting to go to Phoenix for Spring Training, but always resented the huge hike in hotel rates for the event. I found good airline ticket rates, so was on the search again for affordable lodging when I found the Thunderbird. So glad I did! It was in a good location for getting to the stadiums on the...

We came here for baseball spring training and thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. It is a very serene setting and we got a great rate for such a busy time of year. The hotel is tucked into a campus setting but for the most part we felt we had the whole place to ourselves. Staff was wonderful and available 24-7. Will...

We stayed here for one night and would stay again. Staff pleasant and helpful. Room was spacious and comfortably furnished with a very good bed and quiet. Room and bathroom were spotless. Grounds very nice. Availability of snacks a nice touch. Would comment that it was a bit difficult to find after dark.

This place is wonderful. Exceptional staff, immaculate grounds and facilities. Nice extra touch with 24 hr snacks and drinks available. I traveled here alone and felt very safe. The grounds are generously large enough to take a long walk. I took one walk just for strolling as there are many historical sites and photo opportunities to take advantage of.
