“Great spot with great rates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

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. We would certainly stay here again.

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.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are great, they are on each side of the courtyard.

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 St. Pete back in the 70's when our children were young. In fact our first stay was next door at what used to be the Cadilac Motel which was torn down and replaced with the beach bar next to Palm Crest. The area has changed over the years, but it is still the most beautiful stretch of white sand beaches anywhere!

Room Tip: You will not be disappointed in any room. Ours was a studio unit, but they have larger units availa...

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.

Room Tip: Any room is fine, the ones that face the ocean are obviously preferred

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 on weekends - you know the type of bikers I'm referring to. Too bad. The guy who stunk up the place smoking cigars by the pool all day was particularly a downer. Great short term stay, just wish they would limit the smoking.

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.

Room Tip: A few rooms have a view of the gulf or beach. They may charge more so it depends on whether you are...

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.
