My husband and I stayed at the Island Breeze Motel for a weekend. We wanted a low priced room for sleep; we knew we'd be out and about for most of our trip. Room was quaint, modest, very clean. The staff were fabulous which is important to us. Shower pressure was strong, plenty of hot water. Very quiet and peaceful... More

Friendly family atmosphere! Staff was helpful and rooms clean. Lots of charm - great courtyard and pool. Close to beach and shopping. The weather was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to repeat our stay next year.

Spent one night here recently after attending a beer tasting in Venice. While this isn't a 4 star hotel, the cleanliness and friendliness are a big 4 stars. Bathroom had old time pink tiles and the grout could have been a bit tidier, however nothing to complain about. Floors are terrazzo. We stayed in a room with two queen beds.... More

I booked this on booking.com last minute. We called early on the day of check in and asked if it was possible to check in early because one person in our party wasn't feeling well. The front desk clerk Whitney went out of her way to check and see if our room was ready and called us to let us... More

At first we decided not to stay, felt like it was not fancy enough (my husband), I felt it had great charm! Turns out - Great character, wonderful customer service (shout out to Ms. Whitney!). I thoroughly enjoyed the charm, the peace and the weather. Then I went to their sister Inn for breakfast! OMG - Even if you do... More

This mom and pop hotel was good. Not modern. Kind of old. Clean. Microwave and mini fridge in each room. Bed was nice. Flat screen TV (not high def cable). Free wifi was weak in our room. I just went outside and it worked fine. Our extended family got together at this hotel, for an unfortunate event. We had 6... More

My kind of place. Not modern, but who would expect that if they looked at the pictures on line? Clean and well kept rooms, pool and game area. Friendly and helpful staff. Very nice for the price and the Blue Island Bistro is right there with award winning food. I'll be back.

Good location. Nice place to stay for the night. Old florida feel. Friendly staff. I was happy with it. For the price I think it was my best choice.I would recommend staying here. The king size bed was pretty comfortable.

We stayed here for less than 12 hours and couldn't wait to get out. Although the front desk staff was nice, and the grounds seemed family friendly, the room itself left much to be desired. We weren't expecting a 4 star hotel, but the floor (tile? Linoleum?) was dirty, the bathroom was tiny with dated pink tile and mold in... More
