Stayed for a week at the end of July 2016. Happened to be a peak week (June & July is peak time in FL for family vacations since kids are out of school), so this visit there were a lot of kids running around. Usually in the winter months it's a different crowd (fewer kids). Rooms were updated since my... More

We stayed at the Thunderbird on this return trip to treasure island, It has been redone since our last visit. We had a gulf front room and the views were excellent. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff took very good care off us from arrival to departure, special thanks to Cory Ann Levy for the attention she... More

My best friend and I booked a room here and we arrived early so they let us check in hours before we were really allowed to. Our housekeeper Melody was absolutely awesome. Our room was immaculate she was very accommodating. We will definitely be returning.

Great rooms for big families. We stayed here before getting on a cruise ship. We loved it and will definitely stay here again. Great location with lots of shops and restaurants close by. They have the best beaches in Florida for families with small children.

Clean comfortable room, small bathroom (it's from the 60's remember), but overall a nice beach place. Can't beat the location, right in the middle of everything. A lively pool and beach bar as well. We were on the third floor facing the beach, beautiful.

My parents took me to the Thunderbird when I was a kid and now I take my kid here. This is an old hotel and it feels like stepping back in time. There are two pools and plenty of seating. There is a beautiful sidewalk that runs along the beach, I'll bring my bicycle next time. The hotel staff was... More

We stayed there overnight and were pleasantly surprised! The hotel is not new, but it has been renovated and is just the perfect beach getaway spot. Our room had 2 queens, a flatscreen TV, 2 chairs and a table. All new shutters on the windows gave it that Bahamian flair. The bathroom is not new, but it was quite nice... More

We just stayed here over the weekend and were highly disappointed. Not only is the hotel run down, it was completely dirty. The bathtub was disgusting and even my kids didn't want to shower. The bigger pool was dirty (cloudy the whole time). There is not enough parking spaces for guests and each day we were blocked in and had... More

I am very sorry that we did not meet your expectations during your stay this past weekend. If the bathtub was not clean I would have hoped that you brought it to someone's attention to be addressed immediately. There are no notes in your folio to indicate that housekeeping was given the opportunity to make the situation right. We have... More
