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

We had such a great time at the Turtle Crawl Inn! The rooms were very clean and spacious! The view from our balcony was a amazing! And only a short ride to town for shopping and restaurants. A perfect place for girls trip.

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. The balcony is huge.with a full lounge chair and table and chairs. View is spectacular. Beach is beautiful. Above all the... More

We stayed in unit 61, would not rate as high as the worst single star hotel. Not nice as photos on website. Floors dirty, residential beds with headboards falling off, and mattresses totally worn out. Asked for upgrade, denied tho vacancy on.

We stayed here again for the third year in February . The apartment was spacious and clean with a breathtaking view on to the beach. The staff are charming and very helpful at all times.

Clean and really "beach front". Quiet and quite private. Decent amenities. Very family friendly staff. Complimentary umbrellas and chairs with beach towels were a pleasant surprise. Adequate parking, small but nice pool. Driving distance to nice restaurants and shopping center and a marina. Very close to a public beach. Wifi was quite decent and reached well to the beach chairs.... More

We spent nine days at Turtle Crawl Inn in December 2015. Not sure we've ever had a better deal in over 35 years of travel. The inn is situated on the beach with an unobstructed view of the ocean. The ocean surf can be heard in the room, even with the patio door closed, and the ocean breezes sweep right... More

These are large gulf facing apartments midway along Longboat Key. Angel, the manager, makes sure that they are maintained to a high standard and is very helpful. Rebecca, her assistant, also does a great job and nothing is any problem. We had a one bedroom condo on the third level - it was the best rental we have stayed in... More
