“Family Vacation”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Great place for a older property! Great views of the gulf. Excellent housekeeping our room was very well serviced! Friendly front desk people very helpful! relaxing pool and hot tub area.
Only complaint was not enough parking for both properties when motels were full! Would recomend to everyone.

Room Tip: Get in at the thunderbird!

We have been going down to this Resort for many years. And we have always been happy. But this year the staff at the motel was the best ever. We stay in the part that use to be called the Sea Castle but is now owned by the Thunderbird. All the maids that where on staff on that part of the hotel were the best. Always happy and polite and making sure we had everything we needed. Our housekeeper for most of our stay was Tonya, she took the best care of us. Always polite and nice and seemed to really care that we were having a great stay. But i have to say all the housekeepers always seemed to be so happy and extremely respectful so i believe they all need to be mentioned ( Janice, Rita, Kira, Yule, Kathy, Chantell ). You should be proud of these employees. This motel is a older motel, but is always clean and all the improvements they are making makes this a wonderful place to spend a couple of weeks. thanks for a great vacation and we can't wait tll next year!!!!

Room Tip: stay on the second floor in room 20

Although we had a really good family vacation here two years ago, my husband and I were greeted by an unfriendly woman who was not interested in assisting us as we were looking forces room for two nights and she could only offer one. Therefore she brushed us off in a very rude manner

Despite having spent an enjoysble week there tri years ago we would not stay again or recommend to others

After 4 years we had the chance to came back to the fantastic Thunderbird Beach Resort and we still love it.
Everything is in very good conditions, our two rooms on the second floor as well as the bathroom are sparkling clean. The gardens are beautiful with fresh flowers everywhere.
We stayed for 7 nights to celebrate Christmas and to relax in the nice warm Florida sunshine. The location right at the huge beach is perfect for this.
The new Soleil Bistro had just opened and we could enjoy a good breakfast on the patio. Last but not least the free WiFi worked very well everywhere.

We stayed for a one night stop over hoping for a fun, romantic night. I was intrigued to try out the "charm of old Florida" in a beachside motel. It wasn't terrible and rooms were decent in terms of cleanliness, but the term "resort" does not apply to this property. The pool is not appealing and the chairs, etc. say "cheap."

I wish I could post a better review. I really do. But nearby I think you can do much better for comparable prices.
