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

Where to start- Upon Driving up, I thought it was cute. It is on the beach!!! Huge Bonus(but maybe not enough)!! Been coming to LongBoat for many years and have stayed at a few places. Interior#82- house- House isn't too bad. Could use a great scrubbing. The linens are awful!! The sheets are very thin and you can feel all... 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

Hi, Each unit is individually owned, but managed by a mgmt company. You stop and get your keys at mgmt company-close by. They make arrangements if you arrive after hours. (we did). We rented room 501. The best in my opinion. Its a top corner unit-with a SPECTACULAR view of the Ocean and the pool along the side.....with windows along... More

We stayed for three nights in room 402. It was a one bedroom condo with two queen sized beds and a pullout couch. The bed next to the window in the bedroom is hard and not very comfortable, but the other one is. The bed linens are soft and comfy. The pullout bed is pretty uncomfortable, but most are. The...

We stayed in unit 103 and loved it! The rooms were very clean, and the bathrooms and kitchen were well stocked. We loved to be able to walk right out to the patio and from there onto the beach. Our one week stay was during the pre-Thanksgiving season and we had the place almost to ourselves. We had a wonderful... More

Lovely view and beach, kitchen fully stocked and plenty of linens. Advertised to sleep six, which would include using a pull-out couch in main room-couch is so bad it can't even be sat upon, the pull-out mattress was completely unusable. Bedroom windows did not open and the mildew stench was unbearable. I kept a candle burning whenever we were inside... More

Torn bet 3 or 4 stars, but went with 3 due to time we needed to spend cleaning unit before we felt comfortable settling in. Units are individually owned so condition & furnishings of each varies, but assume same cleaning service used for all. We rented first floor unit (101), for $320/night in season (incl taxes), and for this price... More
