The stay here was great! The rooms are like an apartment! The building goes around a very pretty pool! There are chairs outside your doors so you can sit out and enjoy the evening either enjoying the pool or the neighborhood! Also around most of the hotel building is pretty landscaping and hedges. It is a short 2 block walk to the beach! It is also only a block away from unique shops, restaurants, music, and park areas! It is a very laid back area and the hotel is perfectly set up in the community! The staff was very helpful, even allowing us to have a late check out without a charge! It is an older building but the little quirks are not awful~things like the key to the room needs to be jiggled a little, small chips in the wood on the baseboards and cupboards, some minor dings in the floor tile, older faucets, etc. The apartment rooms also come with many kitchen items including a microwave, toaster, plates and silver, and pans! The refrigerator was a little old. The light in the refrigerator did not come on but it worked like a gem! It really was a nice place to stay! I would definitely stay there again!

This is an older property, so don't expect too modern fixtures and appliances. The rooms are very clean though, the staff is very accommodating. The location is ideal if you don't require something right on the beach.

We only want to see the beach about a half hour before and until sunrise.

After that, we'll enjoy cycling towards Melbourne or Fort Pierce. Then we'll enjoy some of the restaurants in the beach area or up near downtown Vero. We've had great meals in both locations.

Going to either area, Sea Turtle Inn is a great central location to make a "home base" for your Vero Beach vacation.

staff was warm and friendly, helping us find good places to eat and things to do. Not a large facility, but family friendly with many nooks and sitting areas, close to good eating, and beach. Relaxing

This is my first time writing a review. I don't like to complain about much, but I felt like I had to write about my experience. When I was shopping for a hotel in Vero Beach, I came across Sea Turtle. I wanted an apartment so I clicked on the website apartment link. Several pictures came up that show a nice looking, modern room. I assumed they represented all the apartments. I booked my room based on these pictures and the reasonable price. When I opened the door to my room, I thought I was in the wrong hotel. It looked nothing like the pictures. Besides the flat screen tv, I don't think much was updated since the 80's. Besides the old and worn out look of the apartment, there were other problems. The "king size" bed from the room description was really two single beds put together on a king frame. On top of that, they were very hard and uncomfortable. I didn't have one good sleep in four nights there. The ac units were small wall hangers that made alot of noise. The smoke alarm in the kitchen was hanging out of the ceiling by the electrical wires. The couch had a cover over it and that I didn't want to look under. My wife found a large cockroach I had to kill in the bathroom. They had no paper towels, sponges or dish soap. We had to go out and buy those the next day. I thought that is pretty standard for an apartment. The next day, I went to the office to ask about the rooms I saw on the website. The man working there said only two rooms were renovated and those were the rooms shown on the website. Of course, those two rooms were occupied so I couldn't move. I was there for a wedding and I knew many other guests staying there. If it wasn't for that I would have checked out and found another hotel. I just feel like I was very misled by the website pictures. If you only have two rooms that are updated then make them a deluxe apartment for a higher price so your customer knows not all rooms are like that. I have to say the staff was friendly and the location is good because there are a few places to eat and shop within walking distance. But if you care about having a nice room, I wouldn't stay at this hotel.

I think the room we checked in to must have been the last one waiting for a remodel. It was very dated, no carpet, and had a shabby used feel and a cleaning fluid smell. We ended up leaving right away. The place is cute from the outside, but needs an infusion of cash to update the rooms.

This is a cute boutique hotel with a few room type options. We stayed in room 10 on the second floor. It was a beautifully recently remodeled two bedroom two bedroom suite with a full kitchen. We could have easily moved in for a month. Bring your own shampoo because only soap is provided. Our only concern was that the walls are very thin, so you can hear the neighbors. Overall though, I will definitely go back and I would recommend it to others!

We come to Vero often and always stay at the Sea Turtle, The staff is wonderful very knowledgeable and friendly. We have stayed in several different hotel rooms and apartments every one of them was clean, comfortable, and spacious! You cant go wrong with the location everything is in walking distance and the rates are very reasonable. So if you travel to Vero beach you must give this adorable little Inn a try!!!!

Room Tip: Every room is GREAT!!!!
