We came for a short 3-day vaca and we loved every minute of it! We had a suite with a king bedroom and separate living room with a pull-out couch. It was perfect! The kitchenette was a life-saver, however my husband says the only downfall was the size of the bathroom. The shower heads could also use an overhaul. But...

Absolutely loved this hotel. Everyone who worked here was friendly and helpful. The room was gorgeous and comfortable. Big television, large bathroom, restful beds. The pool area was beautiful! The restaurant had party lights that lit the pool in the best way at night, and the pool/hot tub were open late! Fantastic for stargazing from the hot tub. There were...

We spent 7 weeks here this winter, and as usual the staff made our stay so comfortable, that we started missing our Florida "home" almost as soon as we left. Our suites were comfortable, and we love the renovations added last year. Our housekeeping staff, in particular Kathy, Shawntelle, and Janis made sure everything was clean and restocked every day...

We had previously heard that this place was quiet however we're not in luck this week ! We're staying in the suites and yesterday the kids were up late screaming in the pool. Today is too cold so the kids are in but the parents are out drinking and being loud. The walls are so thin that we can barely...

We had a gulf view suite which has a nice remodel. However beds are uncomfortable and the walls are paper thin, when we put our kids to bed at 7:30 it was terrible due to the loud kids screaming outside and doors slamming etc. No one ensures the pool closes at 9 so there were kids still yelling and swimming...

We travel across Florida to St Pete Beach at least twice a year - spring & fall to attend baseball games at the Tropicana & the Thunderbird is a perfect location for a beach vacation & just the right commute to the ballpark. We've never stayed in the rooms overlooking the courtyard & pool area, but I imagine they must...

Great location, right on the main strip. Could walk to many shops, restaurants, grocery store, walgreens, etc. The room was clean (except the carpet could have used a good shampooing). The kitchenette was very useful. Bathroom was very small, and the bathroom door wouldn't shut well (or lock). Bedroom window was very dirty. Room had a 'musty' basement smell. Staff...

I was lucky enough to find this hotel last minute on a hotel site, and I was very very happy with my choice. The rooms are beautifully decorated, extremely clean and the beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept on. They supply 2 chairs and a small table to sit outside. We had our food delivered from the...

Can't beat the bartenders! Very attentive and they mix great drinks. The music is an additional bonus. I have eaten in the restaurant before (not this trip) and found it very enjoyable! I have yet to stay in the hotel, but talking to the people that do, they seemed very satisfied.
