We spent 3 nights here and the location couldn't be better. Right on the beach and right next door to a great tiki bar. The room was big enough and clean, and had a small kitchenette which we didn't end up using. Bed was comfortable tv was good but not high enough it was on the dresser. Mounted would be... More

We stayed here for 9 days and in February were very comfortable here. Wish the weather would have been warmer tho. Lots of great places to eat. The grocery store is in walking distance and the beach is awesome!? Our room could have been a little bigger for me and next year we will upgrade to a larger room. Jack... More

Just returned to wintry Ireland after enjoyable stay at Palm Crest right on the beautiful St Petersburg Beach. It has advantage of great location. It is at quieter north end of Gulf Boulevard in St Petersburg - a short walk, drive or Trolley hop from famous Don Cesar pink Hotel in one direction or the lively bars and nightlife in... More

But, if you want a nice clean room, give Jack a call ! If you want luxury, go to Tradewinds or that pink monstrosity down the street and pay double or triple the price. Had an upstairs kitchenette with two comfortable beds, table with four chairs and tremendous view out of the large sliding window of one of the top... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was wonderful. The room, while certainly older and no 4*, was very clean, comfortable, roomy, and it was nice having the kitchenette. The pool was heated which is an added bonus in the winter. The real draw here is the view and the sand. The sand is powder soft and just wonderful!... More

We had a family wedding to attend down the beach and needed a family-friendly, moderately priced hotel for two nights for two parents, two boys, ages 11 and 14, in October. Our room came with full kitchen, table and four chairs, two big beds, and a window seat for fun. We had to buy our own coffee for the coffee... More

Awesome beachfront resort motel, very clean, nice smelling. Fort De Soto just 10 minutes away, the Villages around 18 minutes. Great place to be to enjoy your trips and night life but then, coming back to a quiet "home" where nothing disturbs your sleep. Being from Europe, this beachfront motel for sure has a "European" touch with the motel built... More

Attracted by beachfront location which didn't disappoint, and staff very friendly. However, that's the good stuff. So tired and grubby round the edges, appears to be run on a shoestring budget and didn't even have a light bulb for the bathroom which made showering at night interesting trying not to trip on the uneven floor tiles! Only 1 ring on... More

We wanted a small locally owned hotel with a kitchen on the beach. We got that and so much more at the Palm Crest! When we first entered the room the first thing we noticed was how clean it looked and smelled. The room was a bit dated, yes, but nothing was worn out or broken. The kitchen was spotless... More
