Perfect location - across the street from Publix, nearby shopping plazas, and mall. 20+ minute drive to south beach via Collins. Older hotel with limited amenities, however it is beachfront and offers a low key, relaxing environment on the beach. Vacationed there during spring break and decided to enjoy the beach at the hotel versus south beach to avoid the... More

This is tough, the staff that I meet with were great and the room was clean. For the money I spent I'm happy for what I got. Hotel is right on beach and is older. Could probably use renovation but It was clean. So if you want a hotel on the beach and on a budget you will probably be... More

we recently stayed at the Thunderbird and I think enough has been said as to the fact that it is very dated but have seen quite a few comments about the staff not being good. we found all the staff friendly and helpful and suspect those who do complain are those whose expectations are too high and their mood is...

Being directly on the Ocean in Sunny Isles Beach makes the Hotel great. I found it to be rather quaint and all of the staff was kind and helpful. I enjoyed the small lounge on the inside with live music from time to time. I really love walking up from the Ocean and enjoying a cold draft beer at the... More

Loved this hotel. Its all the original from the 60's. The prices were very reasonable. It has a great pool and the hotel is on the beach !! You do have to pay for a sunbed for the beach though, plus has a poolside Jacuzzi. All the bedrooms are massive, all air con throughout with large bathrooms. All spotlessly clean.... More

We just returned from a week at TBird Hotel in Sunny Isles. We really enjoyed our stay but I feel there are items all travellers need to know before booking. We asked for and got adjoining rooms which were located in the absolute best spot facing the ocean and the pool. Our rooms were tired and in need of a... More

Perfect spot right on the beach with a nice pool and hot tub. The location really can't be beat! The restaurant staff was very friendly, especially Jerry. He served us an excellent breakfast every morning. The view from our room was breathtaking. Just like a postcard. You must ask for a room with a pool and ocean view. We spent... More

So bad we didn't even stay the night! Rooms dirty, dodgy electrics! Balcony moves in the wind! Do not come if your looking for a good holiday! Staff are rude! They claim it's fully booked when we asked for another room, even when it's not !

This hotel has long seen its heyday. The only good thing are the grounds And location. The average age of guests is 70' - 80's, that is about the age And condition of rooms. We would have left, but no rooms to be had anywhere.
