“Thunder Beach - October 2013”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We have stayed at Bikini Beach before during "bike week" events. While not a fancy place, it is adequate, affordable and in a convenient location. I enjoy the beach front balcony and easy beach access. The rooms are dated, limited cable access, no success with Wi-Fi. But, for this visit it was about enjoying the bike week events, so we had a good time. Plus, the place is "biker friendly" with good parking for bikes and trailers.

Nice location with pool and tiki bar but rooms are run down. Very run down, sticky table and dresser. Bathroom also needs updating. No coffee provided in rooms just downstairs. Never had that in an US room before. But rooms have a nice balcony facing the sea. We think there are better places for that money.

I am so sorry that you did not find our rooms up to par. I can not locate a complaint reguarding anything you are discribing. We are family own and operated and are very hands on in our day to day operations. I would have been more than happy to have sent a housekeeper or most likely myself up to your room to handle any problem you may have had.


Life is a beach, come enjoy it

Bikini beach is comparable to a carribean vacation. The inviting gulfside pool, the clean white beach and the aqua blue gulf are sooo beautiful. The staff is wonderful and the price, unbeatable. I LOVE IT HERE!!

WE have been staying at Bikini Beach during Bike Week for years. Yes the building is old. This is one of the few family owned properties on the beach. It is so nice to walk in and have the staff know who we are. The location is right in the middle of the beach and the tiki bar is the best on the beach.

Love the hotel, pool, beach, location! Always stay here. We have been staying at bikini beach for years. Always feel welcomed and location is great. Updated rooms. Could be a little more updated, but we aren't there for the rooms. Lie the full kitchens and ocean front for all rooms.
