“Perfectly balanced resort.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I live and grew up very close to the Bilmar. So when my sister got married, the Bilmar was our sentimental choice for the ceremony and out of town guests. We were pleasantly surprised at how this classic hotel has kept its charm of years past while adding updates to facilities, the pools, lobby area and the rooms. Everything was clean, the staff at this hotel is pleasant and service is great. We were proud to have the groom's family stay here, as they had never been to this area before. Although they rented cars, no one had to leave because everything is within walking distance: grocery, drug store, other restaurants, bars and shopping. The Bilmar also happens to be located on the whitest and biggest beach of Treasure Island. We love it. Always have.

Room Tip: Like all hotels, you will have a quieter stay on a higher floor away from the elevators. The beach v...

We stayed in a gulf facing efficiency apartment which overlooked the excellent white sandy beach and had a small patio so you could have a drink and watch the sunset. The patio was shaded which was great as the weather was very warm during our visit. It was really nice having some cooking facilities as we had special dietary needs and there was an excellent supermarket within a few minutes walk. The hotel had a couple of restaurants but there were others close by also shops and a couple of banks. We found we didn't need to use the car much at all although it was nice to drive up to Clearwater and St Petersburgh. The hotel had a couple of pools which were well maintained clean and warm. The rooms were clean and the hotel staff friendly. Our only negative point was the hotel car park was closed off on our arrival which was disconcerting especially as we had just flown in from the UK and were getting acclimatised to driving in the USA. The hotel can get busy with weddings and functions and we arrived during a function where the visitors had taken all the parking spots leaving none for guests checking in. This is unacceptable. However this would not deter us from visiting again and we probably would not bother with a car next time

Room Tip: Choose a gulf facing room with a balcony

We loved the Bilmar our first trip and had to stay there again. Once again they did not disappoint. They even accommodated us by giving us the same room we had last time. It is nice to know that they are consistent and that their commitment to service is still there. Rooms are very clean despite the sand we carry in from the beach. The food is great at both Bazzi's and Sloppy Joe's. They go the extra mile to make you feel at home. Try it! You will like it!

Room Tip: Pay the extra to get a Gulf side room. The view is spectacular and there is no traffic noise from G...

There is SO much to do if you stay at the Bilmar! Sloppy Joe's Restaurant is attached to the hotel is right next to one of the pools AND is beachfront! There is a bar with entertainment every night right across the street. Walgreens is across the street as well. Publix is a block away.

Room Tip: We preferred the beachfront room with balcony overlooking the pool.

My husband and I just got back from a week at the Bilmar on Treasure Island. The Bilmar was wonderful; big confortable room, terrific staff all around. Treasure Island is so relaxing and the Bilmar added to the relaxing retro feel of the time. We are going back next year!!

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the bottom floor rooms that opens onto the beach. So relaxing it was perfect.

It really irks me when some old couple complains about a room being cold when its 80 degrees out.Everybody had their air on and we needed it.This hotel was nothing but great to us.I thought they kept everything clean and the staff was nothing but nice.The pools were clean and we were very happy with the service.As far as the air conditioning running I've never heard air that did'nt make some noise.We slept great and liked the steady hum of the air.You have to be a miserable person to complain about things like irons or decor.We are going back and can't say enough about this hotel.The view was awesome and the beach was great.Thank you Bil Mar for the lovely experience.
