The ladies at the front desk were amazing. I was worried with it being an older place. I was pleasantly surprised when I went in the room. It was very clean and nice. The parking lot was crowded, but to be expected on the car show weekend. I would stay here again. The heated outdoor pool is a plus.

We styed here for Mother's Day Weekend. Checked in Friday May 12th and out on Sunday May 14th. We chose this hotel based on the price. We normally stay at another place in Ocean City, but at the Thunderbird we were getting 2 nights for the price of one at the other hotel, so we gave it a try. I...

This hotel is clean and close to the beach and activities like amusement and water park which is actually across the street. The hotel provides you with a parking permit for the length of time of your stay.

This is an older hotel with no amenities other than a pool. There are no elevators and we had the third floor. There was a mini fridge and a safe and the place was very clean. The staff could not be more accomidating. If your not in your room much this place is for you!

This motel did exactly the job we intended it to do. OC itself is quite expensive to stay in, even for motel prices; and The Thunderbird was one of the cheaper options. It ticked all the boxes in terms of location, price and amenities. The pool was small but after all it is a beach town and the beach is...

My boyfriend and I agree that the Thunderbird was perfect for our weekend in OC, MD. It was in a great location, the price was awesome, and we didn't have any issues with the room. We would definitely stay again!

Our overall experience of this stay was very poor and I would only recommended if you are looking to pay little and receive little. First off, I should start off by saying if you are picky about cleanliness and good room service then you will be very disappointed here.The second night of our stay we had to request room service,...

I was also a little worried about staying here from the other reviews but wound up not having any issues. The front desk staff was friendly and the room was clean. In addition to our room keys, we were given a card key and were told it was needed to run the air conditioner. When we first got to our...

I'll admit the other reviews scared me before we booked here. We had a GREAT 3 day stay at the Thunderbird. The room was very clean and smelled fresh everyday. The maids were super friendly. We needed extra towels and they were in the dryer so we hit the beach. By the time we came back the extra towels we...

I'm giving it 2 stars because the location was great. Just steps from beach and jolly Rogers and restaurants. And the pool was actually nice. But. The place was very outdated. Not very clean. I guess for the price it was ok but I would definitely pay more and stay somewhere nicer. Would not stay here again.

“If you have issues with stairs, call the hotel directly and ask for a room on the first floor. If you don't want to drive a lot, or are planning on spending a lot of time on the boardwalk, this may not be the right choice for you.”
