“Loved the PAlmcrest”
Reviewed February 2, 2009

I stayed at the Palmcrest because a friend recommended it....they know the family. I loved the personal touch the owner went to in order to make our stay comfortable. I would highly recommend staying at this motel if you have a family! They rreally care and will go that extra mile and beyond.

  • Liked — Very friendly and made you feel at home
  • Disliked — They have a kitchen with microwave for those who don't want to eat out every day or stay a month

Situated just 200 feet from the Gulf of Mexico; the location of this hotel is truly outstanding. Just walk out your door and you have access to miles of beautiful white sandy beaches; not to mention the blue skies and warm sunshine.

What keeps me coming back to this motel/resort is the hard working owners that strive to make your vacation pleasant and comfortable.

In my opinion, the heated pool is one of the nicest on the beach.

This review covers my stay in January through March of 2008. I am back in 2009 for my 26th straight year. Great value and personalized service will keep you coming back as well.

Strange little place. Only four rooms should have past AAA one star. Others had a double bed with a fold out sofa circa 1970. Not enough room for three adults. Furniture crammed in. Sofa bed had bloody stains on the bottom and even on comforter on the bed and mattress. Sheets were not changed for ten nights. People were in families and took up several rooms. The ones who thought it was great had been coming for 30 years and now their grown children and Granchildren were there. Anything goes attitude. Adults in their thirties began drinking in the morning and dumped their ill behavied children in the pool until ate at night. At 11 PM kids under ten were running up and down the walkway between the outside of the rooms screaming and yelling & adults just as bad. Had about one hr when it was safe to go in pool without getting splashed by small kids. Management leaves at night. Kegs of beer allowed poolside, When I complained about the noise late at night the manager said "As long as everyone is having a good time!" Woke up exhausted. Great for heavy drinkers, young people and things you could not get away with in a better hotel. It would be nice if they replaced all of the beds and rented only to two people instead of trying to squeeze in four. Would rather rent a condo off season for about the same price for a week. Would not recommend to anyone I know!

Places was average, but service is poor. Room service must refer to many things such as cleaning, not just changing towels every two days sometimes. Be aware not to reserve too many days, nothing much to do in the area except the beach, because if you leave earlier than expected, Jack the owner will charge you for every nights even if the place is empty. Day by day is your best bet. If you are planing to go to bed early, be aware the nearby motel has a bar that close late at night with lots of Harley Davidson going in and out.

For 100$ per night, a 3 star Hotel in Tampa would have been a better choice for us to spend 12 days in the area with our 2 kids.

My daughter and I have been staying at this same hotel, year after year, for 12 years. We love the owners, the closeness to the beach, the pool and the "like home" feeling from the owner Jack, his family and many of the guests who stay here. It's only two hours from Disney, Seaworld and even closer to Busch Gardens. It's clean and quiet; if you are looking at a nice place to stay on a tight budget, this is it. I will keep coming back as long as I can.

We wanted some peace, relaxation and adult time after a week with Mickey. Having driven down to St Pete's with no expectations, we were happy to find Jack and his freindly staff and very freindly guests. The motel is small, tidy and right on the beach. We watched the most incredible lightening storm one night. Most of the guests are regulars, they go there for the beautiful long beach and warm sea and warm welcome. It didn't take long to unwind and my only regret is that I didn't stay longer. There is a bar next door, not a lot else within walking distance but its OK to take your own beer and sit by the pool if you choose to.
