“Great Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

We stayed here as the place that we normally stayed at was full. We chose to spend more to get a room with a gulf view on the 2nd floor (the elevator goes to the 2nd floor) with a private balcony. It was great. You can even see the spectacular view from your beds. Having coffee out on your private balcony in the morning was beautiful. The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. Did not get a chance to use the pool as it was too cool. We did have dinner at their Italian restaurant, which was very good, and we loved the tiki bar. Everybody was so friendly there and Vlad was a great bartender. The only problem was with the shower. I did not have the strength to turn it on -- had to get my husband to do it. Would definitely stay again in the same room. Love that you can walk everywhere -- park your car and leave it there.

Room Tip: The gulf view room on the 2nd floor was great as you have an elevator to get your items up there and...

We stayed for four nights while we had renovations done in our new home, yes, we are locals. The room was spotless.
the beach is gorgeous. We happened to be here during a cold snap...really cold for us. Turned the heat on, which is probably never used, and nuttin! Called the desk and my hero, Mr Bill arrived..fixing it in minutes flat, and with a smile. He is awesome as well a the rest of the staff...we WILL return...Thanks to all,

Room Tip: we had a nice gulf view, all rooms seemed to have a view

Booked an extended weekend trip in Florida to celebrate a birthday. Louis helped us book it over the phone months ago. Could not wait to see Treasure Island. Love the beach and the part of having so much within walking distance. It was a perfect weekend with walking on the beach path and then walking to John's Pass for the day.

Checkin was great and our room was ready early. The kite festival outside our balcony was wonderful to watch. The only downfall was the cold weather. We tried to escape really cold temperatures to have Florida on a cold spell for the weekend. Still did not deter us from having a great time and enjoying our stay at the Thunderbird. Will visit in the summer months so we can really enjoy the beach and pool.

Room Tip: The rooms with the beach balcony are excellent.

I stopped at the public beach in Treasure Island and there happened to be a kite flying competition going on.. we decided to see if the Thunderbird had a room available.. we rented a king bed suite.. it was very reasonable.. this is an older hotel, but the staff is fabulous . One of the maids, Michelle, was wonderful.. she is a very nice person and will help you with whatever you need . Amy was our server the next morning for breakfast and she was fantastic.. this hotel is right on the beach and the grounds are lovely.. bill is the man for this... I would stay here again. Oh and don't forget Missi at the front desk... very friendly and helpful

This resort has been updated since we last were there.
New wi-fi room keys, computers that have touch screens in
the lobby, new restaurant that has delicous food. Plus all the
great service...the view is still wonderful and the boardwalk
with lights has been finished...this place is the best!

My husband and I had a family event in St Pete and decided to stay in the beach area. The hotel was clean (one of our main priority), the grounds were well kept and every staff member we spoke with was helpful and very polite. My only complaints was that we could hear the people in the room next to us. The rates were good also.

I love Thunderbird Beach Resort, especially the Tiki Bar. I've been visiting there for 11 years. Lou & Vladimir are super friendly, GREAT bartenders and I can't imagine the Tiki Bar without them. I also love the live music & the awesome view. I'm going back in June.
