I have been returning to the Thunderbird every time I go to Florida on vacation. The front desk staff; housekeeping and the bartenders (Vladimir and Lou) at the Tiki Bar are more than employees. I fell like I am returning to family. Beautiful beach views and clean rooms make this hotel the best on the Island. No spa or fitness...

older hotel, large beautiful pool, out door hot tub, bathrooms clean and beds comfy, Tiki bar and dancing on the beach just past the pool area (just far enough away from the kiddies swimming yet close enough so Mom and Dad may enjoy a umbrella drink by the pool). The sand beach is quite a walk for Grandma to make...

My wife was going to be in Tampa for a couple days of work, so I took the week off and went with her for a little R&R. Yes, this is a older hotel, but I knew that going there, and I would rather stay at a less expensive place with a GREAT LOCATION than a hoity-toity hotel in down...

Looks exactly as pictures on web site. On location restaurant is horrible. Staff are not very service oriented .. I think they think they are on Vacation as well for $215 a night staff should be more accommodating.

If you don't mind staying in an older, outdated hotel, and want a great location, this is the place for you. The beds were comfortable enough, but the mold, dirt and grime found in the bathroom grossed me out. That being said, waking up and being literally on the beach was a plus.

A friend and I went for a couple days on the beach. The staff was so very helpful and pleasant. I could not have been treated better. I would like to thank Michelle G., Lou, BreeAnna, Missi, Amanda, Jonny and Michelle C. I look forward to revisiting the Thuderbird in Treasure Island, FL.
