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...

Very nice motel on the beach. Has a grill you can use to cook, pool toys! Ocean view from pool. Not a big resort but much better! Will be back! Other guest were very friendly. Very pretty sunset from the chairs at Poolside. Our room had 2 beds, fridge, microwave, stovetop, dishes and pans.

I researched all different hotels/motels on Trip Advisor and kept coming back to Palm Crest.Our room was small but nice overall and very affordable. Our rooms were cleaned daily except on Sunday.

We spent our time in a beach-facing suite that was extremely cozy and clean. The staff was courteous and helpful and made us feel completely welcome. We were lucky enough to find this gem amongst all the larger hotels along St. Pete Beach and we are so happy we did. What an amazing location and a great facility--probably one of...

We wanted a efficiency room on the beach and that is exactly what we got. Room was small but clean. Great pool and was right on the beach. Jack the manager was always available and very nice. It was a really family atmosphere with families and kids and/or retired couples like us. I was impressed that most had been to...

We were referred to the Palm Crest by a friend, who has been going to this establishment for several years. Great recommendation! Simply a perfect beach vacation. Not a Weston property, but that was not what we were expecting or wanted! Room was clean and supplied with all kitchen amenities. Staff was pleasant and willing to make our stay stress...

I absolutely loved Palm Crest. I found it by chance and can't believe how lucky I was to find it.... it's home away from home! The Motel is smaller and older (so if looking for new posh... don't bother) but it is clean, cozy and parts are refurbished (like my bathroom... which was very nice). The Motel sits directly on...
