The Thunderbird Motel can leave the light on for guests, but they can’t check them in.  The 50-room motel on Ogeechee Road, just outside Savannah city limits, is shut down due to reported health department and building safety code violations.  Chatham County Public Information Director, Catherine Glasby, says while Department of Public Health violations is why DPH pulled the motel’s permit to operate as a tourist accommodations, the county found numerous issues with building safety, “Our building safety people went out as well, um, they have a list of violations that are numerous pages, um, for those violations and that can be anywhere from not having a smoke detector in the room to, um, exposed wires amongst other things,” Glasby said.
