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.

We stayed at unit #81.It's a good size, with two bedrooms and 1 and 1 half bath, but that's it as far as positives.I just don't understand why... More

This guest did not mention any cleaning that needed to be done if there was anything that needed to be cleaned they could have come to the front office and let one of the office staff know and it will be taken care of immediately. From this review we still are not sure exactly what was dirty and what needs... More

We stayed here with our family over spring break a year ago and it was horrible. The unit was moldy and not clean and we never saw housekeeping. The whole place was dingy and not kept up, the beds were so uncomfortable it was insane. The pool is so small that 4 people would be overcrowded. The view was awesome... More
