This is our first stay in this area and it was great. We were in a gulf front deluxe studio on the 7th floor with a great view of the beach. The staff is very friendly, the location is great, and the rooms are clean. The only little things I'd have to point out is that sometimes the internet wasn't working and the a/c can be a bit noisy at night but it really was the only cons. Would recommand it to anyone!

This was our first stay at the Bilmar and we were very pleased, it was clean, comfortable, friendly staff. Great location!

Rooms: Stayed in Shells Building (4 storey) no balcony, but had a wall to wall window with a beautiful view of the beach (windows could slide open, had screens).

Mid sized room, felt updated and clean, comfy beds, nice bedding (just the orange/blue curtains seemed outdated, although clean). Had a mini fridge, microwave, coffeemaker. Flat screen TV, free Wifi worked good. Bathrooms were a bit small but nice with new granite counter. Low water pressure. Plenty of towels. AC worked.

Corridors are exterior; all rooms face the beach (which is nice).

There are 2 other buildings with balconies - Beaches (4 storey) and Palms (highrise). (Beaches bldg had a few rooms that faced courtyard).

Pools: Not enough pooldeck area; approx 30 loungers at each pool (but during our stay it wasn't crowded). One pool is in front of the Palms Bldg and next to Sloppy Joes; the other one is quieter and courtyard by the Bazzie's restaurant. Lobby supplies pool towels.

Both restaurants face the beach and have indoor and outdoor seating.

The elevators are very small. The stairwells are clean and freshly painted.

The beach is very wide from hotel to water, but nice. There's a pathway that runs between the hotels and beach; nice for long walks.

Everything is at the hotels doorstep; little main street of Treasure Island, restaurants, fastfood, souvenir shops, grocery store, drugstore, a few little bars (Rick T's right across the street had live music nightly). Nice lively vibe. Traffic lights out front also.

Just a few minutes drive along Gulf Blvd to John's Pass Village.

We'd definitely go back to the Bilmar.

(Had great weather also).
Enjoy!

Checked into this hotel with my family, very impressed with the clean comfortable room (room 319). Beds and bed linens very good quality. Marble shower, and counter tops in our room. I have no complaints about this place, its beautiful! The pool was clean and warm. All areas of the hotel very clean. Our room we had full size fridge, two burner stove, pots and pans and full table service for four. Did not cook in the room but was nice for drinks, snacks and breakfast items. Also ate twice in the hotel restaurant for breakfast, good food. "Sloppy Joes" a second restaurant is also on this property, but was not exceptional. The hotel staff was awesome, helpful polite and friendly. Very relaxing atmosphere. Well worth the money

We had a great time here. Hotel is on the beach with beach side walk. Two restaurants in the hotel were very convenient after a day of sightseeing or an early breakfast. Lots of shops and restaurants, and entertainment close by. We flew into Tampa and with the shuttle,taxis and buses, on the island we didn`t even rent a car! Oh and the sunsets....breathtaking!!!!

Room Tip: Do ask for beach-side with a patio or balcony.
