The staff here is great, very friendly and helpful. Reminds me of a family-run business. The location was great, as was the pool and the beach (hotel is directly on the beach). We ended up not going to another theme park and just relaxed here for our final 3 days. Our 5-year old was perfectly content switching between the pool...

I recently stayed at the Thunderbird. The ads on the internet are deceiving as they show beautiful rooms and great ocean view. The hotel is ocean front, well sort of. You have to walk a distance to get there which is alright. The major complaints is with the service. The room service people left trash in our room the entire...

Reasonably priced. The Hotel was outdated but clean. The staff were very friendly. Loved that it was right on the beach. Pool was fun with live music every evening. Close to St. Pete's beach and Clearwater. I would definitely stay here again!

Had an amazing time during my stay. Fun people, especially Vlad at the Ikky Woo Woo's tiki bar. We loved having him participate in our dancing, while still doing a fantastic job bartending! He didn't leave anyone out. No regrets about this trip!

The only place I want to go whenever we go on vacation. Vlad the bartender definitely brightened the entire resort up daily, including dancing with his guests. Overall, a fantastic place to be filled with great people!

On two occasions maintenance staff got right behind me unannounced in the parking lot and screamed " Can I Help You " as I was just standing and soaking in the nice view of the Gulf of Mexico. I was completely startled and taken aback. They were dressed in street clothes with no name tags and would only identify themselves...

We (me, husband, 10 year old son) just returned from a 4 night stay here and had the best time. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The hotel is convenient to many restaurants, and a Walgreens and a Publix are just across the street. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to make your stay pleasant....

Stayed here for 5 days last week. The place is located on a beautiful spot on the Gulf beach. We had a gulf front room with private balcony. The rooms are a little dated/old and the bathroom is a bit small. The pool is nice and the live music at night is great. I give the hotel 4 stars overall...
