Reviews and Comments

  • B rohde July 1, 2024 at 3:13 pmWe love turtle crawl. Quiet, very clean, large beach. All you need to bring is your bathing suit and food if you need it!!! Can’t wait till next year. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • janina watts May 13, 2024 at 1:42 pmMe and my best girlfriends have been coming for years! We've stayed in many different rooms. They all have different advantages.. just really depends on what you are aiming for! Love the reception! Both women are so phenomenal and helpful! I love how it's not pretentious! Very low-key, relaxing vibe! Probably some of the most beautiful sunsets in the entire earth happen on this coast! Prices are very reasonable and fair!
  • Teresa Damiani May 13, 2024 at 10:05 amWe have stayed at Turtle Crawl twice now in October, 2023 (#301) and May, 2024 (#204). It is definitely our go-to for any visit to Longboat Key and we will be back. Rebecca and Nicole in the office are professional, friendly and extremely helpful. Both units, #301 and #204, were fully stocked, clean, neat and accommodating. The view is beautiful, the beach was quiet, but friendly, the beach chairs are easily accessible and convenient. We highly recommend Turtle Crawl!
  • Bob and Dawn Russell May 9, 2024 at 10:11 pmWe had a wonderful stay at the Turtle Crawl Inn Condo #302 in April. The unit was clean and well stocked. The view was beautiful! The staff was so friendly and helpful. It was so quiet and peaceful. The beach and pool were not crowded ever. The beach chairs were convenient and comfortable. We loved the towel exchange. We will definitely return.
  • Mitch Haulik May 8, 2024 at 12:13 pmWe stayed in condo #304 in April. All was perfect except the ocean water was a little cold for my wife. Turtle Crawl is really close to the ocean so the view is the best. The sunsets are grand. The condo was very clean, kitchen items were top self. Even the wine glasses were high end. The shower had wonderful pressure. Beds were comfortable. Longboat is a very nice beach get away. One day we only saw 2 people on the beach as far as you could see. The restaurants were all very good in service and quality. We’ll be back again.
  • Rebecca Bogart October 2, 2023 at 9:35 amWe have been coming to Turtle Crawl Inn for the past 28 years and absolutely love it. All of the tower condos are beautiful, the property is well maintained and the views are simply stunning. The beach is private and quiet. It doesn't matter what time of year we come, it is always perfect.
  • Suzanne "Missy" Ledbetter June 26, 2023 at 8:15 pmJust got home from spending 5 nights 6 days at Turtle Crawl Inn. Tower Condos #402. I'll say, WOW! There was absolutely nothing to complain about. The condo was perfect and fully stocked with all cooking ware! The water pressure in the shower is fanominal! Beds were comfortable and the view is breathtaking! I will go back time & time again! All the Managers of the complex are so nice and accommodating. The grocery store is very close. They even provide a box fan for peaceful sleeping at night. I could go on & on...... I was in desperate need of a good vacation and I got it! Bravo Turtle Crawl Inn Crew!
  • Veronica Pope June 22, 2023 at 7:24 pmIt was our second time staying at the same unit at Turtle Crawl Inn, and we would definitely come back! Easy check-in and our unit was super clean and ready for our stay. A shout-out to the staff for making our stay so comfortable.
  • William R Ward Jr May 30, 2023 at 3:47 pmWe've been a 5-time repeat visitor to Turtle Crawn since 2018. We like the naturalness of the beach area, the friendly helpful staff, the relaxing atmosphere and the short drive to areas of interest. We've already booked our next stay. We're an elderly couple, and we always leave the Turtle Crawl feeling better than when we got there. I guess that says something, but having said that, young families with kids seem to enjoy it too.
  • Becky Belanger May 30, 2023 at 8:49 amWe love Turtle Crawl Inn! It is clean, quiet and has beautiful views of the beach. The staff is wonderful! We come here often.
  • Kathleen Kempke May 29, 2023 at 1:27 pmWe loved our stay at Turtle Crawl Inn in Unit 403. We had everything we needed to be comfortable. Appreciate the views, being right on the water and close proximity to restaurants and shopping. Staff was very helpful, and the week went by (too) quickly!
  • RICHARD K PARKER April 19, 2023 at 10:11 pmStayed April, 2023 Villa # 83. Unit was a little dated and the floor plan a little odd the bathroom is a walk through that separates the living area from the bedroom area. However, the unit was clean, and we had no issues. Staff friendly, the location is great for beach access, plenty of beach chairs, beautiful beach area and not overcrowded. Would stay again.
  • Joanne M Storch February 20, 2023 at 2:53 pmWe really enjoyed our stay. The landscaping, the pool, the beach and all the amenities such as the towels, chairs, umbrellas, putting green, gas grills etc. were top notch. We stayed in 402, and really enjoyed the lanai looking out on the Gulf.! The location is absolutely perfect . The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked most nights. We appreciated the towel and paper product service. Rebecca and the other girls were very gracious and helpful. Our only complaints would be the couch was very uncomfortable and the leg on the coffee table was broken so we had to be very careful with it. I am sure the owners will take care of that eventually. Had a wonderful time and will come back.
  • Katricia Phillips September 2, 2022 at 5:37 pmWe will be back!! So hard to leave this beautiful place! Wonderful! Comfortable! Clean! Thanks so much for providing such a wonderful place for our party of 4 to enjoy the beach and the pool. We used the grill one evening—such a nice option provided by management. The booking process was flawless and staff is super friendly and very very helpful. It’s hard to leave paradise but it was a great place to refresh our souls 🌅THANKS Turtle Crawl Inn
  • Brenda P October 19, 2021 at 2:19 pmThis was my first time in Longboat Key but it certainly won't be my last - but I'm bringing my whole family with me next time! We really enjoyed unit 501, too! The condo was not only clean, comfortable and well-equipped with everything we needed - THE VIEWS!! Waking up to the best views and enjoying the sunset was a highlight of the trip. I loved being able to walk right out to the beach and enjoy the day and the sunsets. Can't wait to be back!
  • Margot Rodgers October 19, 2021 at 1:45 pmLongboat Key is our family's top beach destination! You cannot beat the beaches-- the best anywhere! Longboat has such a lovely, peaceful, and low-key vibe. Turtle Crawl Inn-- UNIT 501 is our favorite place to stay. It has all the amenities we need and the BEST view, being that it is right on the ocean. The unit has views to the South since it is an end unit, and of course the perfect view of the Gulf to the west. The kitchen is well-equipped and the owners have done many updates to make it the nicest unit there! Beds are comfortable, and the nice large closet and dresser help you feel at home, and organized during vacation. We love the small pool that doesn't get crowded... and putt putt green and shuffle board are fun for the whole family. We highly recommend Turtle Crawl inn, Unit 501.
  • David Yates July 25, 2021 at 11:24 amTurtle Crawl is a true hidden gem! We really enjoyed the amenities (towels, chairs, umbrellas, putting green, etc.) We stayed in 103, and really enjoyed being able to walk right out on the beach! The location is absolutely perfect - very close to St. Armands, Bradenton, Anna Maria, etc. The staff was very friendly, and even had the condo ready for an early check-in so we could come straight from the airport! We absolutely fell in love with this place, so much so that we already booked our next getaway at Turtle Crawl only 24 hours after leaving! Can't wait to get back!
  • Cindy Hunt April 18, 2020 at 9:44 amMichael and I have been coming to Turtle Crawl Inn for 5 years. We are so thankful that we found this little gem. The staff is wonderful...and they know us...which I find charming! Love our villa and love this beach! We will be vacationing at Turtle Crawl for the next 25 years...and if I can talk Michael into it...maybe a wedding! LOL Can't wait to see it in a couple of week!!!!!
  • Jeff December 31, 2019 at 9:34 amThanks for your comment Patricia. Glad you had a good time at Turtle Crawl Inn!
  • Patricia Parkinson December 30, 2019 at 8:44 pmWe decided to spend Christmas at the Beach this year but I was worried about the chance of arriving late on Christmas Eve and how the check in process would be handled. "No problem", Rebecca had everything organized and ready should we arrive late. She even researched what restaurants would be open on Christmas Day and also provided me with the information about the grocery store nearby that would provide on-line ordering and delivery service and she said they would make sure the groceries got put into our unit so the food would be there when we arrived late on Christmas Eve. From the very first contact I made with Rebecca (cold call on the phone) all the way through the entire week, this property and the staff are outstanding! Always tidying up the common areas, etc. It was the most wonderful Christmas we have had in a long time and THANK YOU especially to the staff at Turtle Crawl Inn. We will be back again!
