Turtle Crawl Inn has it all! Perfect location, right on the beach, mid-key. Nice heated pool, beautifully landscaped grounds, friendly staff. We were in Tower unit 402, great for viewing incredible sunsets. The unit has been recently updated. Granite kitchen counters, stainless appliances, nice bath with large shower. Living/dining/kitchen space is large, roomy and sunny, very comfortable, well equiped for... More

We really enjoyed our time here. Stayed in Unit 102 right on the beach. Gulf Water was excellent, and warm... Also enjoyed pool. One bedroom condo was good. Could use some room darkening blinds in the bedroom, as light from outside by the elevator was bright at night and drapes did not block it out. Otherwise everything was sufficient. Desk... More

Great stay in unit 204. We had one bedroom suite with full kitchen and wonderful view of the beach and full veranda with table/chairs and lounge. The staff was great and Angel is a gem. We will definitely go back. The rooms were large and very clean and well-equipped. If you want a laid back beachy condo on a beautiful... More

We have vacationed at TCI for about 4-5 years now. We always stay on the bottom floor. This time we stayed in Room 102. It was nice, but not our favorite of the four.I don't know the need for a dishwasher other than a much needed island work area. It was our first time in this unit. Angel was very... More

We just returned from a great stay at the Turtle Crawl Inn on Longboat Key. Althought we had vacationed many, many times on the Key, this was our first stay at the TCI. We didn;t know much about the property before we arrived except that it was directly on the beach, which is what we were looking for on this... More

We stayed in 103 in early April. It was a very nice condo with room for all 3 of our boys. The youngest slept on the single in our room, the 2 older in the livingroom. I didn't really care that it had a pool, but changed my mind about that! The boys loved swimming it as the gulf was... More

Very clean and affordable this condo looks out onto the beach and beautiful gulf of Mexico. There were plenty of beach chairs to use, beautiful landscaped area. The pool may be small for some people but I found it to be clean and just the right size, besides you're there for the beach. There are two covered areas one that... More

We stayed in the RVA rental, room 204. Very clean and comfortable. Lots of extra linens. They have plenty of chairs onsite to use down at the beach. Multiple grills and two pavilions for cooking out while you stay. We had two issues. One, was that the wash off water from the beach to the deck areas was smelly unfiltered... More
