This motel exceeded my expectations. I just needed a place to lay my head after visiting my girlfriend. I liked the manager. My room was always clean when I returned from sight seeing and the bed was very comfortable. I'd like to stay again when I return.
This motel met my every need . I didn't see anything I didn't like . For my stay , I was satisfied .

I liked the fact that this motel was located near Idaho State University and I felt safe staying there . It was also near a few restaurants that made it easy to get food for breakfast or dinner. And there was a convenience store a few blocks down the road. It wasn't far from downtown Pocatello and I enjoyed the drive around the city. It was also a very quiet place and I wasn't woken up by any loud noises. Over all, I enjoyed my stay. I'm planning on returning next March to see my girlfriend again and I'll look into staying at the Thunderbird again. more

It is not a 5 star, but we were not expecting one. For the star level it was excellent. Utilitarian but comfortable, nice staff, close to stores, and well priced for 2 queen beds.

It was convenient for what we were in Pocatello for. The cemetery across the street is beautiful and well kept.
Our room wasn't cleaned the first night. We got back to the motel too late to do anything about it. Fortunately there were a lot of towels so we were fine. By the next morning we were almost out of toilet paper and there wasn't a spare.

The lady at the front desk was great. When I checked out and told her about the room not being cleaned she was super apologetic and said we should have called when we got back she would have personally done the room. It really wasn't a big deal for us, and she was so nice about it that it was hard to be too upset. The room, though old and outdated, was clean and smelled nice. There were a few aesthetic issues like the 1960's sink and a crack in the bathroom door. But the bed was fairly comfortable and the room was clean. Not a bad experience for the price. more

Staff was friendly
Price was a little high for a 1 star.

All in all it was what I expected

Just off highway. Suggested Mexican rest block away. Food was good.
Only coffee. Nothing more. Price should have had a little food.
