This is our 2nd time staying here for vacation & we love it here! We waited to late to book so we had to stay in the motel room instead of the efficiency. We thought it would be fine since we would only be sleeping & showering, well it rained most of the week we were there, but we made... More

Wonderful, laid back vacation. You don't need anything to truly enjoy this hotel. Stacy is great! Earl was phenomenal. We saw turtle hatchling and new nests. Bring your bathing suit and that's all you need. Nothing fancy, but very clean and we'll run.. we will be back

This has been a regular destination for our family for 40 years, the Island House is hard by the Gulf of Mexico in Casey Key between Sarasota and Venice. Our kids, now adults, called it the pink motel when they were little. If you love the beach, you can't beat it. Very laid back, there isn't a roller coaster in... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this gem by accident and boy were we glad we did. It was exactly what we looked for while driving down the West Coast. Staci was extremely nice, the entire place is charming it's very laid back do-it-yourself kind of place, no maid service, get your own towels, etc. which works for us and... More

Just got back from a 3 night/4 day stay here. I have to say I was nervous because of the look of the website (a bit dated) and the word "motel" in the name. I must say, however, I was pleasantly surprised! We stayed in room 6 which is a small studio efficiency on the first floor corner. The room... More

We stayed here in April 2014 for two nights. The motel was very clean and had everything we needed. The room was small but efficient however next time we would stay in a one bedroom. The staff were friendly. We enjoyed the walks on the beach, the water can be an amazing colour. The road right on the beach with... More

We've been coming here for years. IH is right on the Gulf of Mexico on Casey Key. Apartments are clean and newly remodeled. You do your own housekeeping but it is so worth it. Plenty of great seafood nearby, some in walking distance. Sarasota and Venice are great towns that at are close.
