Great value for the money !
Location is very nice - beach boardwalk is a nice walk that many people take advantage of. We had a Gulf Studio on the 4th floor - nice view and all we needed for two.
Plenty of restaurants close by with early bird specials and live entertainment - no cover charge for entertainment that we experienced.
Bilmar is very clean, (constantly cleaning), staff are friendly& helpful.
Publix grocery store is a block away - very good deli, we bought the crispy chicken for lunch twice & brought back to our room - under $4 & very tasty (ok sodium content might be a bit high, but really good ! ). Bought a beach chair at Publix for $9.99 - way cheaper than renting.
Walgreens across the road, ABC Liquors within easy walking distance. Wine or beer were good value at Walgreens and Publix, ABC has more selection - depends what you are looking for.
We thought we would rent a car while there - never happened - too easy / well set up for walking.
Walked to St. John's Pass and back one day - we are middle 50's, easy walk for us.
Note : Even if you are not staying at the Bilmar & you are on Treasure Island - be sure to check out the Sunshine Coast Dixieland Jazz Band that plays at the Bilmar in Bazzies Beach Resort Bar every Wednesday starting at 6:30 pm - not to be missed - amazing !!
People come from all around, the band has been playing at the Bilmar since 1967.
Would we go back to the Bilmar?
If we got the same deal with WestJet vacations - Absolutely !
Two thumbs up.
