Loved private beach, access to chairs, nice clean pool, & nice gas grills w/outside tables.. Loved the quiet area. Try the oysters at local Restraunt "dry dock" we also grilled king crab from grocery "publix" Disappointed that when we called about late check in that we were told we were upgraded rooms.. What they really meant was we gave away... More

Our group rented 3 separate rooms for the 4th of July weekend. Their rooms were nice, modern, clean, with working kitchen equipment, ours on the other hand was the opposite... We stayed in room 302, pretty dirty when we got there, kitchen in dire need of renovation. Oven did not work. Don't waste your time on the "dishwasher" we shut... More

This is totally the best location for a restful vacation. Beautiful views of the Gulf and the most gorgeous sunsets ever. My husband and I went several times, our last time was last June, just a few months before he passed and we have some great pictures of our vacation. Thank you all for making this a special time for... More

My wife and I recently stayed here, over the holiday weekend, May 2015. The sunsets are unbelievable. Our room was an efficiency, not the greatest but was the only one available. The beach is lovely and lounge chairs are provided. A nice grill area with tables, chairs and new gas grills made it easy to cook without being too far... More

First, I want to say that I will return to Turtle Crawl as it's a lovely inn and the size and locale are perfect for me and my wife. Even if your condo isn't beachfront, you are steps from a serene and tranquil beach. My wife and I stayed at this inn before; however we were in a different room... More

I recently spent a couple of nights at one of the suites units (81) at the Turtle Crawl Inn. It was perfect for me, my son and daughter-in-law and two grandchildren, ages 10 and 12. This unit had two bedrooms: one with a king sized bed and another with two twin beds. In the living area is a pull out... More

We arrived very late and had to drive to a further location at Engles and Volkers Vacations further down the road since we rented from them. Upon opening the door we were hit with a wave of musty / dirty mop smell. After more than 14 hours of travel we were too exhausted to do anything. The dishes were dirty... More

Having stayed in various resorts every year on Longboat and Siesta key for the past 6 years, I would have to say Turtle Crawl Inn is one of my favourites. I generally stay in unit 102. Which I absolutely love. This particular time I stayed in 104, end unit. The short walk out to the beach and view is spectacular.... More

I stayed in Unit 204 at the Turtle Crawl Inn, Longboat. The rooms are recently updated and all appliances are new. The view of the Gulf, particularly at sunset made the vacation. I spent one week and enjoyed the private beach & pool as well as the shops and restaurants nearby on St. Armands. I've already booked a return visit.
