I have to admit that I had reservations (pardon the pun) about Thunderbird. Having lived near Norman, OK for over half of my life, I know it's been here a while. I didn't have great expectations of this older lodge, but simply needed an extended stay location in close proximity to my home while renovations were ongoing. Thunderbird's weekly rates...

The Thunderbird Lodge was my family's home in x-sition to moving to Norman, following our move from Maryland. Mel, Jada, Martin, & Honeybear welcomed and accomodated us at this motel style establishment for 3 1/2 wks in a clean, comfortable apt-style room that was "fido-friendly". The grounds are well-kept and manicured and included a coin-operated laundry facility. T-bird Lodge is...

I arrived about 8:15 PM. The hotel says it is pet friendly. The odd thing is that the manager must approve the dogs, wants to see them, as well as wants to know if they are going to be crated or not. Oh and not to mention there is a $10 per dog charge even if they are going to...

This is a really nice place to stay. They are friendly and work to help customers. It is a budget friendly option that has both short term and long term options. If you need a place for a night or even for years they can accommodate you. The rooms are always clean inside and they are renovating the place as...

Stacie, Thank you for the positive review! We pride ourselves as a clean and affordable motel for thrifty travelers on a budget who would rather spend their hard-earned money on activities in the local area (instead of dishing it all out for a place that they will simply only sleep in). Not all of our units have been renovated so...

I stayed here for about three months. New owners are working to bring it to life. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They make you feel very comfortable and safe. Being a woman traveling alone, that was very comforting to have. They keep non customer traffic and people off the property. The owner works day in and day out...

We have stayed at Thunderbird for every trip to Norman to visit family/friends since 2008 and will continue to stay here. It is conveniently located so you can get to stores, restaurants, and the OU campus quickly. The managers are very friendly and have been working hard to remodel the hotel. Over the years, we have taken notice to new...

I can't say that I like anything about this place. The only thing that was remotely acceptable was that it was for the most part quiet. The things I disliked, however, is a WHOLE different story.. Lets begin with the overall appearance. It looks nothing like the pictures. I suppose nowadays nothing does anymore, but still come on update those....

Property is very run down but new management working hard to bring it back. We were here for about 45 days. Property looks nothing like on the website. Pool was dry the whole time we were there. Put up a $100 deposit. My dog came down with diabetes and was having accidents in the room, even though we cleaned these...

Had a supposedly non-smoking room here. However, the room smelled strongly of cigarettes. I requested another room but was told all non-smoking rooms had been taken and they could only offer me a smoking. I'm not sure whether the room I had was in fact a non-smoking room, or if they simply changed out a couple of signs because they...
