Torn bet 3 or 4 stars, but went with 3 due to time we needed to spend cleaning unit before we felt comfortable settling in. Units are individually owned so condition & furnishings of each varies, but assume same cleaning service used for all. We rented first floor unit (101), for $320/night in season (incl taxes), and for this price... More

We had a brief 4-night vacation at the Turtle Crawl Inn and had a very nice time. Our room was not in the tower overlooking the beach but along the side of the parking lot in a "garden" suite. Seeing the beach would have been nice but we were very happy with our room. It was clean and well stocked... More

I like little inns on Longboat Key. The Turtle Crawl Inn fit my expectations until I walked out to the Lanai. It was filthy. And it wasn't because of a sudden storm. The desk didn't dispatch an available maid I later learned. I got $50 credit for that on my bill but the place still charged me 0ver $270.00 for... More

Great location right on the beach with beautiful view. We stayed in unit 301 which was relatively clean but infested with tiny ants. No ice maker and limited kitchen tools. We hadn't planned to prepare many meals but with the ants we had to keep what food we had in the refrigerator or micro-wave. Walk-in closet seemed damp so we... More

We were in Tower unit 402, great for viewing incredible sunsets. The unit has been recently updated. Granite kitchen counters, stainless appliances, nice bath with large shower. Living/dining/kitchen space is large, roomy and sunny, very comfortable, well equiped for... More

We really enjoyed our time here. Stayed in Unit 102 right on the beach. Gulf Water was excellent, and warm... Also enjoyed pool. One bedroom condo was good. Could use some room darkening blinds in the bedroom, as light from outside by the elevator was bright at night and drapes did not block it out. Otherwise everything was sufficient. Desk... More

Great stay in unit 204. We had one bedroom suite with full kitchen and wonderful view of the beach and full veranda with table/chairs and lounge. The staff was great and Angel is a gem.

We have vacationed at TCI for about 4-5 years now. We always stay on the bottom floor. This time we stayed in Room 102.
