Bilmar Beach Resort
Ranked #8 of 48 Hotels in Treasure Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 May 2012

We have stayed at this hotel three times in the past three years and each stay has been a wonderful experience from booking to check-out. Our most recent stay was in February and the off season prices were fantastic. We had previously stayed in April and March and can recommend the early spring to avoid the crowds. The hotel staff has always been friendly and helpful. All the rooms face the beach. We stayed on the first floor this time to be able to walk right out onto the beach from our room. Our first stay was three years ago and we stayed in a room on the third floor, which has a great view, but we've booked our last two stays on the ground floor as a personal choice. We were upgraded to a king bed kitchenette this year and saved alot of money by having some meals in our room. There is a Publics supermarket only 200 ft away with everything you need to stock the kitchen. All the sights, shops, and restaurants on Treasure Island are within walking distance from the hotel, which was helpful for our stay this year, since we did not have a car. On our previous two stays we had a car and enjoyed the free parking availble only to bilmar guests. Our rooms have always been clean and comfortable with plenty of space to spread out. The pool was wonderful and we always enjoy the hot-tub.The Sloppy Joe's restaurant on the south side of the Hotel serves a fantastic lobster bisque soup and a sunset view while dining on their patio is a must. There is a nice gym with treadmills and weights, but we prefer long walks on the beautiful sandy beach. There really is no better bargain on the Beachs in St. Pete than the Bilmar Beach Resort..

Room Tip: Pick a room on the south side of the hotel near the reception to avoid the noise from the Sloppy Joe...

Stayed one night in mid-April to try the Bilmar for the first time. Hubby had to mess with the handle on the toilet so it would quit running, didn't feel room was clean enough to walk bare-footed on the floor. We had heard a lot about the Bilmar and wanted to compare it to where we usually stay. We felt the room was way overpriced for the value. We will not be back to stay-but we will go back to Sloppy Joes, which has excellent Sloppy Nachos!

Dear Laverne,

Thank you for staying at the Bilmar during your spring break 1 night get away. Please accept my apology that the toilet needed repair and we would have gladly sent a maintenance employee to correct the problem. We have 24 hour staff available for any items needing attention or to assist in any way. I am also embarrassed if the carpet was not cleaned to your and our standards. Despite the record breaking occupancy we experienced we make every effort to maintain impeccable cleaning and service standards to exceed our guest’s expectations. I hope you will give us another opportunity for you to experience the service and facility that has earned us the Certificate of Excellence recently awarded by Tripadvisor. Sincerely, Clyde Smith – General Manager

Me and my wife enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Lots of fun and the people were very friendly. You should try the restaurant on the resort called Sloppy Joe's. Great food and a cool atmosphere. The only complaint I would have is that the tv in the room was pretty small.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for staying at the Bilmar Beach Resort and for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers. The entire Team is appreciative of your positive comments. Regarding the size of the LCD Televisions I am happy to share that we have already upgraded our suites and Deluxe Studios to 42 inch LCD televisions and have new sets on order for the Gulf Front & Poolside Efficiencies. The smaller Shell Studios are on target for new sets in 2013. We look forward to your return to Treasure Island and the Bilmar Beach Resort. Clyde Smith – General Manager.

We rented two rooms, both gulf front beach views. One was a sunset beach combo (studio with full kitchenette and separate connecting bedroom. Nice amount of space for our son's family of 6. The other was a gulf front efficiency with 2 queen beds, just right for the two of us. Location was great...we could leave our car at the hotel and walk to restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, entertainment, etc. The beach was quieter here than at Clearwater and it was very nice for keeping track of the kids. Also, there was an all-day Blues Fest the first day right in front of our hotel on the beach, so that was an unexpected treat. Stay here if you want to be right on the beach...it's expensive, but we were only there a couple days so felt it was worth it. Clean rooms and everything very clean - pool, restaurant, etc. Waffle house close by so ate breakfast there.

Room Tip: If you have a family, choose a poolside efficiency for 4 people (book online); if you have 5 or more...

We thoroughly enjoyed our mini vacation at the Bilmar, taking advantage of the many amenities. The room was updated and very clean - just perfect! Our only disappointment was that they do not carry the SunSports station in the rooms. While we were able to watch part of the game at awesome Sloppy Joes on the property, we were not able to see our Rays win when we got back to our room. But from the front desk to the pool areas to our room and everything in between, the decor was beautiful!
