Our condo was a 3 minute walk to the beach, right on the Gulf. Condo was clean, if a bit old. Mattress had seen too many guests...lol Internet a bit slow, but acceptable. A few recommendations. None of which would ever be a deal breaker: Fresh coat of paint A hook on the back of the bathroom door for robes,...

Return stay to this clean, well-kept facility conveniently located for all activities, only 15 minutes from downtown Sarasota. Watch dolphins and other fish and wildlife from the balcony while listening to the soothing sounds of the waves crash the beach 24/7. Modern unit with renovated kitchen and bath.

We loved our stay at turtle crawl. We had family and friends from St.Lucia and New York and they absolutely loved Longboat Key. We found an excellent view of the ocean to have our wedding. We stayed in condo 302 which was dated. The room is very large and comfortable. The bedroom is large and had two separate king size...

My sister in law and her family have twice booked the Turtle Crawl Inn Resort as their home away from home. The first time was in February 2016, and the second time they booked for the end of July. The first time they booked a small 1/1 unit with a full kitchen. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything...

The beach was nice. Girl at the desk was friendly and helpful when we couldn't get the TV to work - 2 controls, no instructions. Now for the bad - broken window in bathroom (looked like the glass and area around it hadn't been cleaned in years), 1970 throw rug on bathroom floor, mold on shower curtain, mold/dirt around tub,...

We loved our stay at turtle crawl. You will not find a better view of the ocean( in our opinion) anywhere on the island. We stayed in condo 502 which was very dated. Not really a problem bc we're not buying it, but would have been nice to have it updated some. No pantry or anywhere to put groceries unless...

I gave this a poor review because of the unit itself and not for the overall property which is well maintained. The unit itself, a villa, is very old, dilapidated, dark, dreary, and dirty. The space was great, 2 bedrooms 2 baths, but it is need of a deep cleaning, updated CLEAN furniture and with drawers you can open and...

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...

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...

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...
