You should of know you weren't staying at the Hilton. I find nothing wrong with plastic chairs. It's a very nice, clean pleasant stay for us middle class people that don't need a bunch of fancy stuff. We've stayed there every year for quite a few years. Staff is awesome and remembers us. I found nothing wrong with the towels....

The manager named Kat (short for Katrina) was incredibly rude to my family and should NOT be working in the hospitality industry. Kat accosted my nephew and his lovely and pregnant wife when we returned from the beach to go to the pool. Since they live in nearby Tampa and were not registered guests, she made snarky and snide comments,...

Stayed at the Thunderbird for 4 nights over March Break. My husband and I were looking to show our kids a bit of nostalgia of what motels looked like when we were kids. Boy we hit it right on the money! If you like thin scratchy towels, soap slivers and dish detergent quality shampoo, you'll love this place. We made...

We just got home from our trip to Treasure Island. We have stayed at the Thunderbird several times now and it suits our needs pretty well. There are 2 choices of buildings to stay in. The main hotel and the one beside it that used to be called Sea Castle Suites/ Best Western. Both are located on the beach which...

We recently had our wedding in Treasure Island Florida. We said our vows on the beach in front of the Thunderbird. I have to say the hotel staff and front desk ladies (Missi and Amanda) were so nice.

I can't say enough about this place. The rooms are very nice and clean. The staff is what made our experience amazing. We were at the beach for a charity event and Katrina, Missy and Amanda went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our groups stay. I will definitely be staying there in the future!
