The beach was nice. Girl at the desk was friendly and helpful when we couldn't get the TV to work - 2 controls, no instructions. Now for the bad - broken window in bathroom (looked like the glass and area around it hadn't been cleaned in years), 1970 throw rug on bathroom floor, mold on shower curtain, mold/dirt around tub,...

We loved our stay at turtle crawl. You will not find a better view of the ocean( in our opinion) anywhere on the island. We stayed in condo 502 which was very dated. Not really a problem bc we're not buying it, but would have been nice to have it updated some. No pantry or anywhere to put groceries unless... More

The space was great, 2 bedrooms 2 baths, but it is need of a deep cleaning, updated CLEAN furniture and with drawers you can open and... More

I've been coming to Turtle Crawl Inn for more than five years now, and it is always a pleasant stay. I've been able to book the same room every time, so it's almost like having a vacation home. What could be better than a room that's literally steps away from the beach? Angel, the property manager, is sweet and will... More

We loved or stay at Turtle Crawl Inn! We were in room 74. It was beautifully decorated with all the comforts of home. The staff was extremely helpful and very polite. The wildlife on the beach was awesome! We saw dolphins, a sea turtle, a manatee, a stingray, and lots of crabs. We loved or stay and will definitely be... More

The other travel website clearly states that all rooms have "kitchens" and separate eating area. Howerver, there was only a microwave and a refrigerator. NO SINK. How can you have a kitchen without a sink??? You are required to wash your dishes and take out your trash before you leave. How disgusting to think that your dishes were washed in... More

I hate to say I stayed in unit 304 because I want it all to myself. The owners purchased it in May of 2015. It has a new kitchen/living room and bedroom. They will be redoing the bathroom soon.
