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

We loved our stay at Turtle Crawl. Pool is small but we went at a slow time so not crowded. Great value for the price. Had everything we needed. Amazing restaurants nearby too. We will stay here again! Loved 504!

Very peaceful resort, nice apartment and we'll manicured grounds. The kitchens were well stocked and their beach was secluded and beautiful! For an older resort they have done an excellent job of keeping it up. I will return again.

For over 35 years, our Family has vacationed at this relaxing, pristine beach getaway on exclusive Longboat Key. While the owners and name of resort might have changed, you cannot beat the ideal location on the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Choose from the hi-rse, garden apartments or the charming, cozy bungalows. Lovely pool and fun shuffle board... More
