After reviewing many hotels in the area, I picked Palm Crest Resort for my first time visit to St. Pete Beach. I made the right choice. The best "mom and pop" motel I have stayed at in Florida. The room was very clean and looks like it was updated within the last ten years. The bed was very comfortable. The... More

We were looking for a last minute 3 night hotel stay in Florida during Spring Break! A friend recommended this motel. It is a small motel directly on the beach with a pool overlooking the ocean. Is it brand new? NO! Did I see any bugs? NO! Was the room clean? Yes! Would I go back? Yes! The owner arrives... More

The Palm Crest exceeded our expectations in almost every way for our family spring break. The hotel rooms and grounds were very clean. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The laidback atmosphere, family-run feel, and affordable price were perfect for our family (kids age 13 and 11). The beach was great for walking and running. We didn't need or want... More

Stayed at this motel with family during spring break during the week. It's on a budget, don't expect all the fancy things from typical hotels. Expected room to be clean however we had to buy some cleaning items to be able to stay. Cigarette smell, old carpet, thick dust on ceiling fans made us stop by the dollar store to... More

There's no better place you can go than this motel. The atmosphere is simply outstanding - from friendly staff that makes you feel right at home and like you're part of the family, to the beautiful beach sunsets. You won't regret your stay!
