The Thunderbird is an old-fashioned property which could use some updating in the kitchenette (rusty microwave), but the cleaning staff was friendly and our room was immaculate. The pool area is beautifully landscaped but the hot tub was very old and noisy. This property is right on the beach which is beautiful, and close enough to walk to many places.... More

We have been coming here for 14 years and the reasons include the beach front room we love, the view is incredible, a pool, restaurant, a Tiki bar and live music almost every night.

Overall the Thunderbird was a great place to stay. Ashley and Marty at the front desk were extremely friendly and accommodating. Had no problem changing arrival/departure dates. The hotel is old and dated like most buildings on Treasure Island, but very clean and so close to everything. The restaurant on site is amazing and everyone on staff was so friendly.... More

Before we even got to FL I received an email from the manager asking about a free upgrade to a gulf front room! Once on property I enjoyed the view, the tiki hut, and the live music! The beach is right there too! We got a late check out as well! I will return!!

First - remember that all the hotels I've seen on Treasure Island are old buildings and are not going to have rooms like a 5 star in the city. I did find all the personal to be very friendly and helpful. We were there for a week and loved the music in the afternoon, the walking trail in front, the... More
