While the weather did improve a bit from January, it still was not the weather we have come to love and expect from Florida. We did, however, manage to get a few boating days in and 2 beach days (well technically 1 beach day and a good intention 1 hour of beach another day)! We took a casino overnight trip to Miami Gardens and even won a bit of mad money…we celebrated my great nephew Rileys 7th birthday..we had some family time, first a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bilmar Beach Resort Treasure Island
My mom and I travel to the Gulf Coast of Florida yearly and stayed at the Bilmar for the first time last October, 2003. We stayed in an efficiency located on the 4th floor.
I am a travel agent and my husband and I stayed at the Bilmar for 3 nights in December. We originally had reservations for a 2 night stay but decided to extend it for our last night rather than drive to Cocoa Beach like we originally planned. We had an oceanfront efficiency on the fourth floor in the tower. We loved our room. We had a great view of the ocean and the sunset. We enjoyed Sloppy Joe's, especially when it was warm enough to eat outside. We didn't use the pool at all, but it was small. It was a great location, the Bilmar is located only 20 minutes south of Clearwater and 10 minutes north of St. Petersburg. The front desk staff were not the friendliness of people, but the view was well worth their lacking smiles. The beach is very wide and you can walk for miles. We found a lot of nice shells, even a few conchs (some alive and one empty one). All in all, we had a very nice stay at the Bilmar. I would definetly return and recommend this hotel to my clients who are looking for a value hotel on the beach.
don't get the rooms in the middle bld --no balcony!--the other gulf front rooms have one & its worth it --it is a little crowded but beach resorts are squeezed in nowadys.view was beautiful --mattresss were not very good --needed replaced. staff was very friendly & let me change rooms to a balcony.l
Went to Bilmar Christmastime 2002-while there,contracted pneumonia; told Bilmar; thet set me up with a "doctor" that informed me they did not take any health insurance (I have blue cross of Mich .) They told me $350-400.00 for hotel visit plus medicine; also, if pneumonia, they would need a chestx-ray, also not covered. I said forget it, I will go to my own doctor in Mich., hopefully I wont die before I get back-the "doctor" on the phone said "your choice"-and promptly hung up on me!!! Now, I know that Bilmar is not responsible for me getting sick,but from Saturday, when I talked to that "doctor", to Monday morni ng, when I was due to come back to Michigan, NOT ONCE did the staff at bilmar check on me to see if I was alive or dead; I was bedridden from Saturday until Monday Morning, I contacted Expedia, suggested it wuold be nice if I could get a partial reimbursement for my shabby treatment, said they werent authorized to give refunds, E-mailed the parent Co. of Bilmar, with the same request, to this day I have not heard a word from the parent company of Bilmar; to be honest, I never expected to! That was my first trip to Florida, It was also my last, I had an all-around lousy time!!!
Don't do it!
Not sure if I qualify to write a complete review as we bolted after being shown 2 rooms and being appalled by both of them. The pool areas are small and one pool had orange construction fencing around it. Both rooms looked like something straight out of Pulp Fiction. Awful, OLD and smelly. Sloppy Joe's is a nice place but the rest of the hotel had better shape up! Really - Im not all that fussy but COME ON!
Run, Quick. This place is awful. The elvators here smell of dead fish the windows leak so much that when it rains the carpet becomes so wet it splashes when you walk over it. Free HBO as advertised, where? The bathroom is covered in mold. Windows in the bathroom in an outside hallway, give me a break. Heated pools? With what, ice cubes. They even charge for local calls. How about flipping a mattress every now and then. Remember that water I told you about? Well don't try to adjust he controls on the air conditioner while thats present, what a shock. One final bit of advise. DO NOT STAY HERE! RUN, QUICK.
Stayed at the Bilmar for a week in July. Had I known what I was in store for, I would have only stayed one night. The elevators are not ventilated in any manner. If one was to break down, the people inside would probably die. I kept the air conditioner on high the entire time, and the room was still too hot. Their brochure said they offered free HBO. They did not have HBO, as the desk clerk informed me, because they were having trouble with the cable company. They did however have pay-per-view movies, which the desk clerk suggested. I, however did not partake in these, since I was meerly looking for what the brochure had promised. They, also, did not have the hot tub that was advertised.
We had a blast!
we stayed at the bilmar beach resort this weekend and had a fabulous time. We were upgraded to a suite due to overbooking and it was more than we had hoped for. The room service was great, the restaurant "Sloppy Joes" in the resort served good food and drinks. Overall we had a great time and are looking forward to going back.
Great for the price!
Get your best rates online, fantastic value for the area. Convenient to shopping, groceries, tourist traps. Lots of Euro tourists, great people to shoot he s---t with. Fantastic sunsets on the beach.
Very bad experience
My husband, I, and 3 children had a 3nt stay pkg at this hotel. The room they put us in was old and dark. We had a full kitchen.The cabinets were metal and rusted along w/the cabinets in the bathroom. I did not want to put my cloth in any drawers. There were ants on the floor. When I told the front desk they seemed not to care and said they could give me some ant killer. We asked if we could look at another room and they all looked that way. We left the next morning and stayed at the Ramada two doors down, much better.
This place is very old, needs alot of remodeling
