We stayed two nights again at the Bilmar on our annual trip to Florida in May this year.
We didn't get our preferred room, but we still had a ground floor room which was nice.
Hotel hadn't changed since last year, a new resort fee was added, we had booked prior to its inception, so we were able to opt out.
Room was nice except for the bottom of the room door being bent/warped inward allowing lots of morning light and possibly bugs to enter. Glass blocks in bathroom wall also let in the morning sun like it was a klieg light, they really should have curtains over it.
We come here mainly for the sunsets, since the gulf water is so far from the hotel.
Bazzies, the onsite restaurant, is a nice place for a snack or cool libation, their $3.00 strawberry margaritas are very refreshing. The Blues band on Wednesday night is a great free show, get there early for an indoor seat. They offer a nice hot pretzel.
Once again there was a beach wedding while we were there. Special memories.
Lots of new beach chairs and chaise lounges to relax and enjoy the sunset from.
Staff was very nice and accommodating.
This may have been our last visit to the Bilmar. Current Prices there are probably going to force us to stay at a different TI hotel or maybe additional days on the Atlantic side of Florida.
If you can afford it and desire the TI area, the Bilmar is a decent place.
The sunsets are gorgeous and they are "no extra charge"!! ;-)
