This place is a really nice place right on the Gulf. We came here for a one night romantic getaway. Rooms were a little old and need remodeling. The elevator is real slow. The front desk staff was polite and helpful. I would recommend this place.

Just spent four wonderful days at the Turtle Crawl Inn on Longboat Key. It is located steps from the beach with spectacular sunsets and views of the water. Very clean and well equipped condos make you feel at home. Plenty of towels for the beach and beach chairs for lounging in the sun. BBQ grills are provided at one of...

Fantastic view of the Gulf! Attentive staff. Very good value. We stayed for 3 weeks and it began to feel like home. Nice kitchen facilities in our unit. Loved walking the beach. Had everything we hoped for.

Stayed in room 503 which belongs to owner Jim Zilli, not Turtle Crawl Inn. He was Nice at first until we had a rough and uncomfortable (very) time sleeping on very old sunken mattresses. He ignored our calls and emails. His Condo was very dated. The Turtle Crawl Inn is very nice with a great location. But the Zilli owned...

Very old building needing a major renovation. The headboard of our bed was not attached to the bed and it constantly moved making sleep impossible, the bedding was dirty and the room smells really bad to the point of making you feel sick. Inside our closet it was storage old cans of paints and inside of the other closet they...

This was our second time at Turtle Crawl in the past 4 years. This unit we stayed in, Unit 82, was outdated, and in poor shape. How you ask, pictures will help us convey our discontent with this stay. Mold around the air vents, patchwork that hasn't been painted, spider webs along window sills, ancient windows and sills. It's very...

Hello, I am glad that you enjoyed our resort and the local restaurants.I just want to clarify that you were upgraded. You rented a studio, also known as an efficiency, that has a garden view. You would have had the same view in the studio as you did in the 1 bedroom condo that we did upgrade you to. We...

Our group rented 3 separate rooms for the 4th of July weekend. Their rooms were nice, modern, clean, with working kitchen equipment, ours on the other hand was the opposite... We stayed in room 302, pretty dirty when we got there, kitchen in dire need of renovation. Oven did not work. Don't waste your time on the "dishwasher" we shut...

This is totally the best location for a restful vacation. Beautiful views of the Gulf and the most gorgeous sunsets ever.

My wife and I recently stayed here, over the holiday weekend, May 2015. The sunsets are unbelievable. Our room was an efficiency, not the greatest but was the only one available. The beach is lovely and lounge chairs are provided. A nice grill area with tables, chairs and new gas grills made it easy to cook without being too far...
