“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

When we were looking for hotels in Vero Beach Florida, we saw several good and a few bad reviews for the Sea Turtle Inn. From its looks, it seemed like a cool place so we gave it a try. My wife and I stayed at the Sea Turtle Inn for a week and we had a great time! The location in Vero Beach is fantastic and the staff was extremely nice and courteous. It is not a 5 star luxury hotel but it is a very cute and genuine hotel, there are many nearby shops, restaurants. Our apartment was clean and we got excellent service during our stay. We’ll definitely be back again.

We go to Vero at least once a year and we absolutely LOVE the Sea Turtle Inn. We will not stay anywhere else because you won't get better customer service, peace and quiet, or a more relaxing beautiful atmosphere anywhere else!! We stay for a week when we come and they always take great care of us. The rooms are very nice and clean. The beds are comfortable.Just 2 blocks from the beach! Housekeeping is very friendly and efficient. The ofiice manager Sara was so sweet and helpful. If we're going to Vero Beach, this is where we are staying! P.S.- You have got to try Mulligan's restuarant 2 blocks down! Its right on the beach and it is awesome. The staff at the Sea Turtle recommended it, we ate there almost everyday!

I'm all for supporting the "little guy" and staying at local establishments any time I can. Unfortunately, this wasn't even worth the small price we did pay.
First the Good: The location was ideal for us - just a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops. Cute little sitting areas outside - even though it was basically a parking lot. The size of the room was good. It was convenient to have a kitchenette. The price was cheap. Easy check-in and check-out...No one was there all weekend!
Now the Bad: The room smelled musty and wasn't very clean. Ants. Ants. Ants. Spider webs and pink mold in the bathroom. No extras - Only one small roll of toilet paper for the weekend. (We had to go to the store and get more!) Only one set of towels. No one around to replenish either - all weekend. The bed was hard. The sheets were so-so. The a/c was loud, but the ceiling fan didn't work so we didn't have another option. A sign attached to the mirror saying that we would be charged for towels used to clean cars, shoes, etc. was definitely a red flag about the usual clientele.
It's so sad, because this place COULD BE GREAT WITH A LITTLE TLC!!! I hope the owners read this (and other reviews) and make some changes.

We recently had a team retreat at the Sea Turtle and it was great. All of our needs were met in a peaceful and welcoming environment. I would recommend this place to anyone! The location was perfect as long as you aren't looking for "right on the beach" as it is 2 blocks from the beach and shops and food. We rented an apartment and had plenty of room and enjoyed the staff and the pool and beach. Highly recommended for family and longer term stays. It is clean and well kept and some of the rooms have been very nicely updated. There is a lot of charm to the place. This was our third time coming (second for a team retreat) and it was great.

Room Tip: We have stayed in a king regular room and two apartments and all of them have been great. Upper floo...

Previous reviewers seem to have either LOVED this place or HATED their experience here. I stayed here for four days to attend my father's funeral service in Vero Beach. I did very much appreciate receiving a bereavement rate from Sea Turtle and my experience here was fine.

The location is convenient to the beach and several very nice waterfront restaurants. The rooms varied in quality depending upon which one you had. My room (#9) had refrigerator, microwave, flat screen TV, and a work desk. The free high speed internet was a big plus.

On the negative side, the bathroom was very much sub-par with a shower that would either freeze you or scald you from minute to minute depending upon who else was using water in the building. The overall look and feel of the bathroom was just plain kind of grungy. This was not a big deal for me but I suspect that some people wouldn't care for it.

There were small ants crawling around the various counter surfaces throughout the room. They didn't seem to take much of my food so I didn't care that much...still, just saying.

So, overall I would say that as long as your expectations are set appropriately for a tropical place with the pros and cons often associated with tropical locales, you will enjoy your stay here.

It was the second time we came here. We just love that place. Affordable rates, very relaxed manager (thanks again, Sarah), great location, nice beaches close by and clean apartments. We rented an apartment for the five of us and stayed for 10 days. They come with microwave, fridge, stove and are fully equipped. There is also a nice pool Very childfriendly and quiet. I recommend it to anyone. We will sure come back.
