Thunderbird Beach Resort
Ranked #12 of 48 Hotels in Treasure Island
Reviewed 19 January 2012

We had friends and family come from all over the country to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. I can't imagine any place being more perfect. The property is beautiful and leads onto one of the nicest beaches around. The kids loved the pool, and the adults loved the hot tub. Location is super - we could walk to restaurants, shopping, whatever. Rooms are first-rate with access to kitchens which would make a longer stay even better (I'm definitely going back). Staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Food in the little cafe on property was excellent and very reasonably priced. I just can't say enough good things about this place. If you need a property for a party/banquet/wedding/whatever, this is it.

Room Tip: You can't beat the price for value of the gulf-side rooms. Balcony/patio right on the beach. Al...

My husband and I have stayed here several times over the past few years and we
think it's great...it is two levels high, shaped like a horse shoe with the open part facing
the beach and ocean...They have a pool and hot tub that is cyrstal clear and always inviting.
We always signup for the rooms that have the kitchens in them so it's easy to make
breakfast or keep snacks if you are hungry. The food just melts in your mouth from
the menu..during the winter they serve breakfast and lunch...The Tiki Bar is always open,
with music on Friday, Sat. and Sunday nights...you can sit out in any chair and just feel
how wonderful this place is. The desk clerks are always ready to help out with any info
you may need, local or away from the Island...It has been updated to handle any computer you want to bring, but honestly, why waste your time on it when you can be on the beach?
Enjoy it!

Just returned from our second stay at this property, and will definitely return. Very helpful and courteous staff, who keep this place looking great. Ikki Woo Woo Tiki bar is always fun, however the entertainers are just so-so. Vlad is a very popular bartender. Great location within an easy walk to about anything you might need. Rooms are a little dated, but very clean. Wireless internet works great...never had a problem. Great place to watch the sunsets.

Room Tip: We like rooms 26, 27, and 28. Close to the pool and has shade in the morning.

A nice little hotel to spend a night or two. The hotel itself is old and a little outdated, but the rooms were clean and large...but the VIEWS are absolutely amazing and the beach just goes on and on forever!! We took the Gulf View room, which looks right over the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and the stunning beach. We loved the "Jimmy Buffet" style singer who performs on weekends. The Tiki bar was great, the pool was clean and nice (saltwater) and the hot tub were lovely. All in all, it was a nice place to spend two nights. We wanted something "unique" and boy did we get it!

Room Tip: Take the Gulf View room for breathtaking views, sunsets and sunrises....quieter than the pool view r...

Four of us stayed here last spring and loved not only the great location but the grounds and the staff. We loved the area by the pool--lots of fun people watching, and the close proximity to the ocean. The efficiencies are nice and make a big difference for a long weekend stay. Lots of space in the room too for four of us. And the staff took great care of us, providing extra clean towels when needed and accomodating our request for a late checkout. I also appreciate that the members of management here know what the winters are like in Wisconsin and can appreciate a girl's need to get away for the weekend. Thanks for making our stay great.

Room Tip: The efficiencies are nice.

This was our second Christmas season, in a row, spent at the Best Western Sea Castle and our 5th Christmas in the area. We love the location and the fabulous Gulf views. The hotel is an all suites motel which is ideal for longer stays. It is nice to have a separate sitting area in your room after a day on the beach or sightseeing. The living room and bedroom are modern and fresh. The bathrooms could use some updating, but are clean and functional. Each room also has a small stove, fridge, coffee maker, toaster, dishes and utensils which allows you to cook some of your own meals.
The front desk clerk, Lewis, is extremely friendly , as are the housekeeping and maintenance staff.
This is our hotel of choice when travelling in the Treasure Island area.
