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... More

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... More

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.

First, I want to say that I will return to Turtle Crawl as it's a lovely inn and the size and locale are perfect for me and my wife. Even if your condo isn't beachfront, you are steps from a serene and tranquil beach. My wife and I stayed at this inn before; however we were in a different room... More

I recently spent a couple of nights at one of the suites units (81) at the Turtle Crawl Inn. It was perfect for me, my son and daughter-in-law and two grandchildren, ages 10 and 12.

We arrived very late and had to drive to a further location at Engles and Volkers Vacations further down the road since we rented from them.

Having stayed in various resorts every year on Longboat and Siesta key for the past 6 years, I would have to say Turtle Crawl Inn is one of my favourites. I generally stay in unit 102.

I stayed in Unit 204 at the Turtle Crawl Inn, Longboat. The rooms are recently updated and all appliances are new. The view of the Gulf, particularly at sunset made the vacation. I spent one week and enjoyed the private beach & pool as well as the shops and restaurants nearby on St. Armands. I've already booked a return visit.
