    The stay was wonderful
    With everything going on right now the policies they had to keep everyone safe were amazing I love that we had to wear masks at the pool unless we were in the pool

    Typical Run Down OC Spot
    Thunderbird is a typical Run-Down OC Spot. It desperately needs Update! The female working the front desk (The Owner) was rude, snippy and irritable. Beds were hard, blankets were musty, room was dark & dingy. To turn on the AC, you have to put a room key in this box thingy connected to it. Never seen anything like it, ever. Glad it was a 1 night stay and didn't have to be in the room very much!

    Very good 8.0
    pleasant stay
    For the price I wasn’t expected much, I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of our room and I will definitely stay here again. This hotel is within less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. My only complaint is the size of the room. It was manageable for my husband and I, but it would not have been big enough to stay for more than a night or two with children. Service was great and every one was friendly. Overall I was pleased and you can’t beat the price!

    Great stay!
    OC is a noisy place and not the hotel's fault. The room was very clean!! I was very pleased. It's not remodeled, it's outdated but everyone was clean. Bed sheets were white, clean, no stains, no fanny smells, no bugs!! Bathroom, very clean, no funny smell, no leaks, no rust. There was no coffee maker. Was there 3 nights, with my 5 year old daughter. I worked while there (remote work). We used the pool twice, it was clean. The lady at the service desk was very nice!

    The best were like styrofoam blocks it was so uncomfortable- and I originally reserved one king size bed and got 2 twin- i am 6 ft tall and i have not slept on anytbing less than a king since my early 20s. For the last minute planning the hotel did what it needed to do for me- will never stay here again.
