Upon looking up information for this Thunderbird Inn, it was great to see not only was it fairly well reviewed but that it also fully embraces its kitschy past. I actually have a lot of "Thunderbird" photographs that I was originally going to share in one post but that seems to be impossible at this point. There are quite a few places called Thunderbird Inn and Thunderbird Motel still open all across the country. Perhaps someday we can talk Jordan Smith of Cardboard America into tackling the past of name (as he has done for so many others) and see if any of these were part of any chains or it was just a very popular name.
