Very peaceful resort, nice apartment and we'll manicured grounds. The kitchens were well stocked and their beach was secluded and beautiful! For an older resort they have done an excellent job of keeping it up. I will return again.

For over 35 years, our Family has vacationed at this relaxing, pristine beach getaway on exclusive Longboat Key. While the owners and name of resort might have changed, you cannot beat the ideal location on the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Choose from the hi-rse, garden apartments or the charming, cozy bungalows. Lovely pool and fun shuffle board...

Hi, Each unit is individually owned, but managed by a mgmt company. You stop and get your keys at mgmt company-close by. They make arrangements if you arrive after hours. (we did). We rented room 501. The best in my opinion. Its a top corner unit-with a SPECTACULAR view of the Ocean and the pool along the side.....with windows along...

We stayed for three nights in room 402. It was a one bedroom condo with two queen sized beds and a pullout couch. The bed next to the window in the bedroom is hard and not very comfortable, but the other one is. The bed linens are soft and comfy. The pullout bed is pretty uncomfortable, but most are. The...

We stayed in unit 103 and loved it! The rooms were very clean, and the bathrooms and kitchen were well stocked. We loved to be able to walk right out to the patio and from there onto the beach. Our one week stay was during the pre-Thanksgiving season and we had the place almost to ourselves. We had a wonderful...

Lovely view and beach, kitchen fully stocked and plenty of linens. Advertised to sleep six, which would include using a pull-out couch in main room-couch is so bad it can't even be sat upon, the pull-out mattress was completely unusable. Bedroom windows did not open and the mildew stench was unbearable. I kept a candle burning whenever we were inside...

Torn bet 3 or 4 stars, but went with 3 due to time we needed to spend cleaning unit before we felt comfortable settling in. Units are individually owned so condition & furnishings of each varies, but assume same cleaning service used for all. We rented first floor unit (101), for $320/night in season (incl taxes), and for this price...

We had a brief 4-night vacation at the Turtle Crawl Inn and had a very nice time. Our room was not in the tower overlooking the beach but along the side of the parking lot in a "garden" suite. Seeing the beach would have been nice but we were very happy with our room. It was clean and well stocked...

I like little inns on Longboat Key. The Turtle Crawl Inn fit my expectations until I walked out to the Lanai. It was filthy. And it wasn't because of a sudden storm. The desk didn't dispatch an available maid I later learned. I got $50 credit for that on my bill but the place still charged me 0ver $270.00 for...

Great location right on the beach with beautiful view. We stayed in unit 301 which was relatively clean but infested with tiny ants. No ice maker and limited kitchen tools. We hadn't planned to prepare many meals but with the ants we had to keep what food we had in the refrigerator or micro-wave. Walk-in closet seemed damp so we...
