      Historical Traveler Reviews Bilmar Beach Resort Treasure Island

      Fabulous - Would do it again in a Heatbeat

      from

      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.

      The room was excellent and clean. The view was spectacular and situated over the pool. This was an Gulf Front View. We also had the view of "Sloppy Joe's".

      The food and drinks were very good, although they didn't have a BIG selection - they had a list for dinner of about 10 items. Room service was excellent. We had breakfast out on the balcony many mornings. Service was fast and prices were reasonable.

      The ammenities in the room were in good working condition, i.e. the stove top, refrigerator, microwave and t.v. The kitchen utensils were abundant. We had enough glasses, pans, dishes, silverware etc.

      The room-safe was an added convenience that we used daily.

      The employees, (the front desk and maids and maintenance) were all very accommodating. We had one morning where the toliet became stopped-up and maintenance was called and came immediately. The elevator was quite slow.

      I would like to address to some of the complaints within this web site. (a.) Regarding the orange contruction fencing around the pools, by the time we got there in October, it was no longer there. The pool area was very clean and it was kept up daily before it opened. (b) Regarding the elevators, we only found them to be slow. We didn't have windows in the bathroom (that doesn't seem right - don't know where your room was). Our sliding glass doors that led out into the balcony were a bit hard to lock and slide, however, think about the climate you are in. Humid and salt air - what else could be expected. We found the beds to be comfortable.

      We were on vacation to have fun and enjoy the beach - we didn't go to stay in the room, however, the room was much to our satisfaction and we will go there again. While we were there, we had breakfast at the Don Cesaer in St. Pete's Beach - just to splurge. SAME BEACH, SAME WATER , BETTER PRICES AT THE BILMAR.

      I think some of you people are being too picky. Repairs always have to be made. And it may be your luck of the draw when a pool might be being repaired, or the hot tub is out of order, or the windows need repairing - DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF. Enjoy.

      Better than expected

      from

      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.

      Week end

      from

      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

      Spent a lot of money to go- got pneumonia

      from

      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!

      from

      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!

      from

      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.

      Hated it !

      from

      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.

      Presently remodling, it was said. My room was right beside the ice machine, which I had the joy of listening to all night long. I would not recommend this place to any one.

      We had a blast!

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      We moved to the Dunedin Carefree RV Resort (pronounced DONE-EE-DIN) north of Saint Petersburg on the 3rd.

      The RV park was a nice park with wide and long cement pad sites with lots of trees (so many near our site that we could not get satellite and they do not have cable, but we were able to get good OTA reception).

      The park is near the Gulf, but it takes some time to get to since it is a long ways from ...

      You always hear about 5 star hotels. Five star hotels don't even come close to our stay at Steve and Stacy's. What wonderful hosts they are!!! Steve is an excellent chef. He loves to cook and can he ever come up with some "DELICIOUS" meals. Every night we had awesome meals and great dining room conversation. Sydney is an unbelievably talented young ...
