We always enjoy staying at the Thunderbird when we are in the area. The rooms open right up to the pool and hot tub. There is also a tiki bar there that is a lot fun to hang out with the locals. Live music adds to the island feel. There is a resturant there that is very good but there... More

My husband, his grandparents and I stayed at this motel. My husband thought that the sheets felt itchy, but we just figured they didn't use fabric softner or something. Although the price and location seemed perfect...the smell of the room- along with the BED BUG bites, were not a good start . On my way back home I notice a... More

Our regular pest control company is specially licensed in bedbug service and inspected this room yesterday and found no signs of bedbugs. This is a very serious allegation and we do not take this accusation lightly. The room that this guest stayed in has been occupied almost continuously since her 1 night stay on May 16, 2009. There have been... More

My wife and I made a reservation at the Bilmar, next door, where we had reserved a "Gulf Front" room. Apparently, the Bilmar has their own secret definition of "Gulf Front," which includes rooms directly over the restaurant and pool (which causes a lingering aroma of stale beer and garbage, thus causing you to avoid opening your balcony door- the...

What an incredibly great time we had at the Thunderbird. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and very comfortable. The bed was just like ours at home. The location is wonderful. The trolley can take you right to John's Pass and there is a grocery just a few blocks away within walking distance. Really no... More

My wife and I were married at the Thunderbird two years ago. At that time, the staff was very accomodating and enthusiastically assisted us with our wedding planning. For that reason, we have returned each year to celebrate our anniversary. The location is ideal. The pool is refreshing. The Tiki Bar is right out of a tropical dream. The Tiki... More

From the moment we arrived to the time we left 8 days later, this resort continued to provide my wife and I the most enjoyable time possible. Everyone went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The rooms were very clean, the pool area was one of the best we have ever had. The grounds were extremely clean... More

I'd highly recommend the Thunderbird for any traveler looking for a relaxing get-away. The staff was wonderful. Janet helped me reserve a great room with a private balcony and beautiful view. Barb made our stay so enjoyable. Barb made excellent recommendations for local spots to visit (and ones to avoid!) and she accommodated our request for a slightly later check-out... More

We arrived on April 18th for a one weeks stay in Treasure Island at the Thunderbird Beach Resort. The weather was perfect and the Thunderbird Beach Resort was great. We especially loved the view (the Gulf of Mexico and the beach) from our pool and our room. The pool was the right temperature and the entertainment was great.

This is truly a treasure on treasure island. Unlike others, we had no problem with housekeeping. Loved the location right on the gulf, and our balcony was great in the morning with coffee and at night with a tall one. The internet connection was basically non-existent, at least in our room, and the computer in the lobby took forever, although... More

The Thunderbird was recommended to us by friends who had stayed there before and it truly lived up to our expectations. The hotel is beachfront with approximately 50 rooms centered around a tropical courtyard with pool and jacuzzi. All the rooms have ocean views and open out to walkways with deck chairs to enjoy the view. The rooms were clean,... More
