The hotel insisted on charging me a resort fee that I had clearly already paid through Kayak. I even showed them the confirmation sheet which listed it. The $71.00 per night room turned out to be $101.00 before any hotel or sales tax. They actually lied directly to me about the charges. The room itself resembled a cheap motel room.... More

We arrived at 12 noon and weren't able to check in until 3pm - when we did check in both our rooms hadn't been cleaned - the man on reception wasn't that helpful. However, when the rooms had been cleaned they we very large, comfortable, but a bit tired. When we went down to reception the grumpy guy had gone... More

Yes its dated and old fashion but you get what you pay for its cheap yet has prime location right onto the beach. Rooms were clean so that's all that mattered to us. Right on the beach so what more do you want.

This hotel was chosen by Virgin Cruises for a night before and after our cruise. I had read some negative reviews but was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is not new, but our rooms were clean and comfortable, everything was supplied a expected, plus we had a balcony and sea view on both nights. The pool area is good, also the... More

I stayed there in Sept 2012 and was satisfied with the standards. It's not 5* luxury,but u don't pay 5* prices. The room was clean and comfortable,and the facilities were adequate. The only fault was being unable to control air con in the room. Apart from that I will definately stay there again!!

We arrived here after a long journey down from Orlando. Receptionist said she only had ocean front rooms left, cant remember the rate but it was pricey, but we were tired so agreed. She gave us room 243. We were told about the price for the valet parking but not about the resort fee. The view from the room is... More

A nice reception area greeted you, when you entered the hotel. Staff very nice, & pleasant. Our room had a balcony which over looked the pool & beach, it was fab. The room was average but very clean. We only stayed 2 nights before our flight home. We travelled around Florida. The hotel charged for extra things, it was still... More

The Thuderbird has the absolute best location and beach which moves it from a solid poor location towards average. It is a small low rise hotel situated between several newer high rise properties. Besides getting good sun all day (not the case at the high rise places because the buildings block the sun) the Thunderbird offers plenty of free beach... More

I'm not a complainer, but this hotel was awful. I booked it through Priceline and arrived to be told that I also owed a $10 (self-parking across a very busy street) or $12 (valet) daily parking fee AND a $12 daily resort fee. The "resort fee" includes access to beach towels, the ability to sit on their beach chairs outside... More

Let me start by saying you get what you pay for at this hotel! 5* it is not. However this hotel is situated in my opinion the best beach, and the pool is lovely. The rooms could have been cleaned a little better but hay it didn't ruin our stay. The hotel its self could do with a makeover but... More
