Verified Reviews of Thunderbird Beach Resort

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very Impressed!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
As a native Floridian, I have always known about the Thunderbird. It has been a staple in our community for over 70 years. I recently decided to book a weekend trip with a friend for her 40th birthday. I was really impressed when we checked in and got to our room. The staff was very friendly and professional. The room was modern, clean and spacious. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. We will definitely be back!

"Misleading Photos"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This hotel was nothing like it looked online. There was absolutely no way I was going to let my wife stay in this roach motel. When we arrived and realized the ridiculously low quality of the room, we left. The hotel not only charged us for a nights stay (we weren't there 15 minutes), they charged the booking company for the entire stay. Companies like this should not be in business. Do not stay here.
