After reading reviews on the motel we decided to give it a whirl during the first week in May. It was just as described and we were not disappointed. The only negative was that the pictures actually make the rooms look bigger. We were on the lower level with a garden view and the room was quite small but totally... More

This a great spot for a reasonable price. What I liked most about this motel is you can walk out to the beach directly from your room. Management/staff are wonderful and very friendly. Walking distance to grocery store and liquor store & a few restaurants. Great place to stay if you are looking for a great price & great location.... More

Out of the blue, we found Palm Crest for a nice getaway weekend for my spouse and me. We enjoyed the cleanliness of the room and great kitchenette, in addition to a nice BBQ grill right in the courtyard. This motel has a great ocean right of the pool. We'll definitely visit it again in the near future.

My family has visited this area for several years, but this March was the first time since 2006 that my husband and I have stayed at Palm Crest. We were pleased that it is still family owned and well kept! It has a homey atmosphere, with direct beach access. We loved our stay once again. We started our stay on... More

My Family and I stayed at this family owned motel for the week. We had a terrific experience and enjoyed the direct access to the pool and white sandy beach. The Motel was clean, well kept and centrally located to stores and restaurants. The owner and staff were friendly and accommodating to our needs. We will definitely return next year.

The good - small mom and pop operation right on the beach, clean rooms, fair price (we paid $112 for interior room), close to restaurants. The beaches are perfect and allow for long walks and we enjoyed gathering by the pool for sunset. Unfortunately, smoking is allowed outdoors and the hotel is next door to a bar frequented by bikers... More

We were treated nicely, but the best thing is that it was genuine and homey. Direct beach access was wonderful. We could walk to local restaurants. This was so much better than the chain experience. We would definitely return.

If you a are looking for a motel right on the sugar sand of the gulf with a pool and good rates, Palm Crest is it. It is not a five star, but it is clean, friendly and just what you would expect from a motel run by a competent and caring family. We will be back.

Hands down, you can't beat the location, the cost or the genuinely friendly service you get here. On the surface it doesn't look like anything special but every thing about this place exceeded my expectations. Certainly, it's a little bit older of a motel & being on the beach with a constant influx of guests it's a little dated &... More

This was the 3rd time that I was at St. Pete at the Palm Crest. I loved it so much that I decided to have my wedding right there poolside! It was perfect! Jack and the whole staff were there for anything, even the day of the wedding when a fuse was blown in our room...he had it taken care... More
