Spent the night at this hotel on a brief trip to the West coast of Florida. Facilities at the hotel are very good and we enjoyed breakfast at the hotel. Location just fantastic as our room was 1st floor (or 2nd floor US) looking out onto the beach, so views were amazing! Good hotel accommodation - not luxury but not... More

We experienced both good and not so good things during our stay. Good: the Tiki restaurant on site is a great deal. Breakfast is the best option, and kids eat free with paying adult. The kid's meal is not skimpy either. The pool is very large and relaxing with room for everyone so you don't feel crowded. There is lush,... More

Where do I begin? I based our stay here on the reviews and glad I did! This was the perfect family vacation spot for us. In a strapped Michigan economy, the online booking discount made it possible for us to take this long overdue family vacation that didn't drain out bank account. Check out the Thunderbird's actual website for their... More

Our family stayed at the Thunderbird Beach Resort in Treasure Island, FL between June 27th through July 5th, 2005. We booked a "Gulf View" room facing the beach on the 3rd Floor. Rooms 14 and 18 are the outside corner rooms at the top of each section, and are the "quiet" rooms high and away from the garden/pool area. The... More

My husband and I stayed at the Thunderbird for a week in order to attend a wedding. It is definitely an old low-budget hotel, but it is clean and they have done some work to make the rooms more attractive (new paint, new window coverings, and nice white comforters that look like down comforters but don't use feathers). The AC... More

My family and I went over the Fourth of July weekend. A holiday weekend is apparently excuse enough for staff/security to ignore loud and unruly guests. Pool closes as 11, so why would you have to call and go down to the front desk at 11:40, 12:15 and 2:00?? Why would no security stop people from shooting off personal fireworks... More

We try our very best to insure a safe and comfortable enviroment for our guests. Holidays are not any excuse for staff or security to ignore anything. Our pool and courtyard areas do close at 11pm, and security patrols the area, but we cannot help the noise created by guests coming back from a night out, they are not always... More

We stayed at the Thunderbird over the 4th of July weekend with our kids after having car trouble on the way down from TN. Had to change our reservation several times, and the front desk staff was so patient and helpful (Barbara, Sarah, Ashley, Lisa). Even for such a crazy busy weekend for our ever-changing plans, Barb and Sarah, in... More

Let me first say that this resort was better than the pictures shown. We had room 16 which was ocean front on the 3rd floor. It had 2 queen beds and a mini fridge and microwave. The a/c worked GREAT. The best part of this hotel was the staff. Barbara at the front desk was helpful and even recommended a... More

My husband and I travelled to Treasure Island, Florida and found the people who lived there very friendly. We stayed at Treasure Island Beach Resort and loved it. It was an older hotel that had been renovated over the years and some beautiful improvements (as is evident with the pictures of the hotel years earlier that hang in the lobby).... More
