Management and cleaning staff were always around & always asked if we needed anything. Very clean & very quite. Loved the little kitchen.We had a crock pot & fry pan with us... More

Extremely clean. Nice heated pool. Rooms spartan with horrible hard beds. Breakfast food free. Owner does not take criticism well so don't complain. Wifi almost nonexistent. Lots of rules. Difficult to get to and from because of one way situation.

We had stayed several times at another B & B, and when it wasn't available we chose this for a six-night stay based on positive TripAdvisor reviews. From reservation to check-out, the owners made us feel welcome, and the accommodations (a little suite, with a bedroom, bath, and living-dining-kitchenette area) were excellent, with a comfortable bed and fairly well-equipped kitchen...

We recently spent a few days in Venice and two of them at this motel. We enjoyed the simplicity of the place. We could sit in the chairs provided outside our room and visit with the other guests. It is obviously old but renovated. Rooms are very small but manageable. There are no hair dryers in the room but when... More

Me, my husband, and son were travelling around Florida and ended up staying at the Oza Inn when we had reached Venice. This place is indeed quite simple and cozy, and as a result, feels like home. The location is great which is not too far from the beach and happens to have a number of places to eat nearby.... More

The Oza Inn makes the Bates Motel look like a Holiday Inn Express! There is a flashing neon sign on the outside that says "Open" yet there are prison-like gates that are closed and padlocked all the time. There are usually two cars in the parking lot, and those two same cars have been there for weeks and weeks. There... More

Yes, the place was immaculately clean and the staff are lovely....but: It needs just a few things to make the stay more pleasurable. It is a 1950's style motel - which I used to stay in and loved. But here are the things that need to be addressed to make it more convenient: no place to blow dry your hair.... More

Me and my wife were traveling from NC to Miami and stopped in Venice. We drove past Oza Inn on our way to Bonefish. We thought the motel was closed because gates were closed only one side open. While eating dinner outside my wife noticed someone outside the motel gates and she insisted we stop by, we are happy and... More
