The good - small mom and pop operation right on the beach, clean rooms, fair price (we paid $112 for interior room), close to restaurants. The beaches are perfect and allow for long walks and we enjoyed gathering by the pool for sunset. Unfortunately, smoking is allowed outdoors and the hotel is next door to a bar frequented by bikers...

We were treated nicely, but the best thing is that it was genuine and homey. Direct beach access was wonderful. We could walk to local restaurants. This was so much better than the chain experience. We would definitely return.

If you a are looking for a motel right on the sugar sand of the gulf with a pool and good rates, Palm Crest is it. It is not a five star, but it is clean, friendly and just what you would expect from a motel run by a competent and caring family. We will be back.

Hands down, you can't beat the location, the cost or the genuinely friendly service you get here. On the surface it doesn't look like anything special but every thing about this place exceeded my expectations. Certainly, it's a little bit older of a motel & being on the beach with a constant influx of guests it's a little dated &...

This was the 3rd time that I was at St. Pete at the Palm Crest. I loved it so much that I decided to have my wedding right there poolside! It was perfect! Jack and the whole staff were there for anything, even the day of the wedding when a fuse was blown in our room...he had it taken care...

We stayed at the palm crest for 5 days in March. I can tell you it was probably one of the best places we have ever stayed. Not because it was luxury or anything. It was the personal, one-on-one that you had with the owner who was constantly running around taking care of things and making sure you enjoyed your...

By far this was the best birthday celebration vacation I ever had. We stayed three days here on 9/1/2013-9/4/2013. Jack the owner even called us to let us know our room was ready earlier than expected so we could get aheads start on our stay at his wonderful motel. When entering the room it was so fresh smelling and clean....

This has been the best deal on the beach for us and we have been coming here for quite a few years. We try to come on the same week and so meet up with others that do the same. Its like a reunion on the beach every year. The rooms are small but clean. Plenty of nearby restraunts or...

Me and my family having going to this gem for 40 years. We have seen owners come and go and love the times there all the same. I have the fondest memories from when I was a kid and I now bring my children there too. I learned to swim in the pool many years ago, diving for sand dollars...

Palm Crest is a vacation home to many people. We have been going there the first two weeks of April for 8 years. We look forward to the same friends from all over Canada and the USA being there at the same time and in the same rooms as the year before. The same great staff always make the stay...
