This is a rebuttal to the guest who stayed in 83 booked with Angel's Vacation Rentals I personally showed her the new room that she was to go into and she thought it was a great condo after about 3 days she came to me with her first and only complaint of a bad frying pan at that time I... More

Spent 3 days in rm 83. Very nice and well looked after. Not the view we expected. Move to tower unit 304. At first glance is seemed ok with wonderful view of the gulf. After staying there 10 days we were so disgusted with the place we couldn't wait to leave. Our agent, Angel of Angels vacations was very accommodating... More

We stayed in the tower T401 and loved the condo. The view was great. The condo was clean and had everything you need. The owner was accomodating and happy to make our stay comfortable. The beach was excellent. Much wildlife to see. The condo is right down the road from St. Armands Circle, Mote Aquarium and many restaurants.

This was our fourth year in a row at Turtle Crawl Inn for our anniversary. We have gotten very good at what makes for the best morning, afternoon & sunset drinks from our balcony and we bring that & plenty of stuff that makes our stay one to look forward to each year. This year was unusual - the different... More

Nice enough place. We chose it via internet so I tried to temper my expectations. Had never been to Longboat Key before and it is lovely. This is one of the older places on the beach, surrounded by much more luxurious resorts and hotels, which were, I am sure, more expensive. We were traveling with young children so at least... More

My family went to Longboat Key for a mini stay. We normally would have used our timeshare located there but decided to allow other family members to stay in it and we found somewhere else tostay. We choose the Turtle crawl inn because it was small and looked like a family place. It was definately that. Our room was a... More

Staying at the Turtle Crawl Inn was one of our best vacations yet. Everything we wanted to experience was located close by. The beach was absolutely fantastic. The whole family enjoyed swimming in perfect water temperatures, both in the ocean and in the hotel pool. Tina was a great help with advice on what to see in the area. We... More

The turtle crawl inn was the best beachfront resort my wife and I have ever visited. Tina at the front desk was friendly and very helpful. We stayed in room 501 oceanfront view. This room has a panoramic view of the ocean that is to die for. Every evening you can watch the sun set into the beautiful waters of... More

We booked on-line through Resort Quest as we had a great experience in the past w/ another Resort Quest property in Longboat so we expected the same quality/standards, but were sadly disappointed. The only positive of the unit we stayed in was the view...which was amazing. However, the unit was filthy. So much of the unit was in desperate need... More
