Hotel has a great location. Unfortunately, tons of families with cooking in rooms and smell of cooking all over including in the rooms. Cleaning left a lot to be desired. Mold in shower, maid did not even bother to empty coffee pot. Manager gave lame excuse it was a "FL Law" that they couldn't clean out the coffee pot, too...

Friendly, clean, and great location. Many nice places to eat all in walking distance. Only downside (if there is one) would be the long walk to the Gulf. Seemingly a wide section of the beach. The Big Blue slide which is just a couple steps down the beach was lots of fun for the kids. Unfortunately, they were having issues...

Amanda was so precious! She was able to calm me down and provide a remarkable room for us. She was truly a God send! I couldn't help but hug her for being so helpful. We had just been to the hotel next door and was very disappointed. We will definitely stay at the "Bird" from now on. We LOVE THE...

My husband & I hadn't planned on going to the gulf side, but at the last minute decided to spend a couple of nights there. When researching condos/hotels/resorts, we found Thunderbird had a room available. We had stayed before many years ago and decided to try it again. We weren't disappointed! If you are looking for fancy, this isn't the...

Our first time here after ten years when the kids were little. It has been remodeled, it's beautiful. The hotel room was spotless. We walked to Hooters to watch the USA game. It was a pleasant walk (30 minutes) to the draw bridge. The staff is very helpful with directions. At night we stayed poolside by the tiki bar listening...

The location of the Hotel was amazing. Beautiful beach but it is a long walk to the Gulf from the Hotel so for anyone having issues, the distance may be too much for some. The sandy white beach was gorgeous and swimming in the warm clear gulf was delightful. The Hotel pool and Hot Tub was nice and we had...

This is my second trip to the Thunderbird, and the place is still lovely. The people who run the resort are even better. I would like to thank the head housekeeper, Janice, and her staff: Edra, Chantell, Rita, Kathy, Dot, and Qua for their hard work in keeping the room and surrounding area perfect. I will be returning to the...

We had a short beach vacation to Treasure Island in the middle of June and we stayed at the Thunderbird. The location was perfect. Even though it was a walk to the beach(the beach is wide here), it posed no problems for us. The water was very warm. The beach was uncrowded. The hotel was of a retro style, which...

Stayed here this past weekend and were really pleasantly surprised. Reminded me of old time Miami Beach back when I was a kid and we would drive down for Christmas vacation from Ohio. Great atmosphere, retro feel, room was updated and really clean, very friendly people, lots of families hanging out. Very small but really great tiki bar with awesome...

Where do I begin? I've been going to the Thunderbird for about 10 years... can't tell you what a great place to people watch it is. And on Monday, it's Feona... a truly original Flower Child of the 60's ... But on Saturday... it's Darrell who will take you to the Ocean.. with his Ocean Song or transfer you back...
