    The location fit my travel plan, close to Mono lake.

    New decoration is needed, everything in the room is so old and dirty. AC is too loud, cannot fall in sleep if it is turned on.

    Proximity to centre of town, but it's not a large town. Clean.

    Management staff were not very friendly. An improvement in this alone would increase customer satisfaction. Facilities are very old and tired.

    I loved staying here after 4 nights of camping in the Sequoias. The room felt homey, nice furniture, sheets with patterns on them. I loved the neon signs, and how old fashioned yet well maintained the motel was.

    Location in heart of town is nice, just far enough away from the highway to minimize traffic noise. Restaurants, and shopping are within walking distance A large K-mart is a short drive away at north end of Bishop. 1/2 hour drive, 5000 ft elevation gain away is world class wilderness, streams and lakes.

    The a/c was slightly weak on a 105 degree day. Mini-fridge was not cold enough. More windows on 2nd story level units to maximize view would be a desirable addition.

    The Thunderbird notel met my expectations as a reasonably priced motel that served my purpose for a two night stay.

    Nothing really. The motel is old but clean and the staff is very friendly.

    I didn't like anything about Thubderbird Motel and I reported that to you. So you send me a survey that is weighted toward the positive andf I dopn't appreciate this waste of my time. The place is a dump and you should be more responsible about yor recommendations. You havce lost a customer in me. Tim LaVelle

    The operators are very eager to please. The room was large for the price, very clean and tidy. Coffee was provided in the room, cereal and fruit in the lobby, but with a great coffee shop only a few steps away, we had breakfast there instead. Banks are easy walking distance, as is a good bar and restaurant. Easy to find and a great value. I'll stay there again.

    Standard motel air conditioner.....kind of loud. I ran it until the room was the temperature I liked, and shut it down for the night.

    There was a mistake about the booking. The Manager corrected it imediatly. Upon reliasing I was not going to like the arrangement she offered to move and upgrade us to a sister motel a block away. Good decision!!! The rate quoted was different," Weekend rates" You might want to look into that. All in all everything worked out well. Thank you, Darel

    The day we left to stay at the Thunderbird Motel, we had major car problems that left us sitting in a car dealership from 10am till 5pm. This put us way behind schedule. The manager waited for us to arrive which was 11:00pm. We were very greatful not to have to sleep in our car. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable which we appreciated after the day we had. I would stay there again next year when we travel to Lake Tahoe.....
