“Great motel stay!!!”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

Just a great stay at the Palm Crest. First time visit with my husband and two other couples. R & R at it's best. This motel is on the beach just steps from your well equipped clean efficiency. What a friendly atmosphere-we felt like we were part of a big extended family. Jack the owner/manager is very accommodating to his guests and went out of his way to make our stay memorable. I enjoyed the small motel over the larger hotels for many reasons. Great pool, grill area, sitting areas, pavilion, affordable and did I mention Beach front!! By the way the sunsets are wonderful. This motel doesn't have an exercise room or tennis courts but who needs them - go for a swim or walk the beach. The property Is close to so many places to eat and hang out. Shelling is fantastic. Sun and fun for all so jump in the water?
We will be returning to this little gem.

If what you want is relaxing downtime, then this is the place to go. None of the loud tourist trappings here, just peace and quiet. The room was great (free Wi-Fi). We had a small kitchen with supplies. A real bonus if you want to save time and money. I like eating out, but I don't want to more than once a day. It was nice to be able to keep fresh fruit, milk and coffee in the room. The pool area was within feet of the beach. Everything was always clean and the staff was kind and helpful. This is not a modern, high-tech, fancy resort, but more like the mom and pop places that are scattered about. If you want clean, quiet, and a real bargin, then stay here. I have stayed elsewhere while in St. Pete, but from now on, this is the only place I will stay.

Room Tip: It may not look like it, but there are enough parking spaces.

The hotel is very clean, great layout (pool is steps from the beach). We were having a great time, until the last day when our kids (6 of them ages 5-13) were playing in the pool. It was 10:00 am and we were told our kids were being to loud. I will fully agree, they were loud, playing marco polo yelling across the pool. But isn't that what kids are suppose to do on vacation, while playing with friends in a huge pool at a hotel. I would suggest the owners (who were very nice otherwise) make it known before a family checks in that they have a noise limit on kids playing in their pool. We are very responsible families, who would not allow our children to act inappropriately. Unfortunately, we would have gone back, along with referring more friends to join us. But there is no way we could possibly make it a fun vacation if we had to keep our kids quiet in the pool! Very disappointed!!!!

Room Tip: Rooms near road can hear cars. Don't go with young children unless you plan to keep them quiet...

Just returned from a week at Palm Crest and loved it. First time to stay there and wll go back. Actually booked a stay for my mom next week. The rooms and property were very clean and maintained. Stay on the 2nd floor with a gulf front view and so worth it. Loved waking up each morning and looking out to the wonderful gulf. The room was comfortable and the kitchen was stocked. A few steps from your room and you are at the pool and the great white beach. Jack the owner and Ericka the housekeeper were just great with the the guests. The only problem I can see is parking. Limited parking and got lucky to get the last spot on one night. Will be back next year.

Room Tip: Gulffront room well worth the extra price for the view.

This was our 2nd time staying at the Palm Crest motel and we love it there! The management is so friendly and the rooms are nice and clean. I love that we are right on the beach and they also have their own pool. The only downside is that there are no balconies for beach front rooms! We plan to stay there again!
