Business traveller, Travelled with group
Not everyone has a credit card and they don’t accept visa debit cards. I called before I left home to confirm that they take visa debit. The lady on the phone said that they did and could she have the number. I gave her the number, she put me on hold and when she came back to the phone she said I was all checked in. I just had to pick up the key at the office. I get there a couple hours later and am told that they don’t take visa debit or cash for deposit, I have to have a credit card for that. I had to find another hotel. I was not happy at all.

The bird has fallen from the nest
I don’t know what happened but this hotel has gone downhill. It looked so run down since the last time we were there. Rubber flooring pulled up, weeds overgrown. No hanging baskets or any of the added extras that may this quaint local hotel so appealing. It was little things like the coffee pot still had the last occupants filters and coffee remnants in it and the floor was sticky. The bed was comfortable but my husband had to reposition the box spring onto the frame first. We’re really sad that we won’t be considering the Thunderbird for our next visit to Duncan as it was always out first choice.
