I recently stayed at the Inn. It's an older, refurbished motel in a handy location, and has a very nice onside restaurant. Although the room was nicely updated, including the big flat-screen TV, I found the housekeeping to be poor. When I walked around on the room's terrazzo floor in my bare feet, I had to get a wet towel... More

The motel was ok for a beach motel. Unfortunately, if you latch the patio doors the housekeepers will not clean the rooms if the back doors is latched because they will only enter from the back patio door. However, we were not told of this rule but when we asked the front desk person indicated that it was in the... More

Our stay at Island Sun was wonderful from the time we arrived and greeted by Spencer,the desk clerk until we checked out with Joe, the General Manager. The room was spotless,the beds comfortable, the bathroom supplied with everything we needed. Also a microwave and fridge were provided. When we opened the blinds we had a lovely view of the courtyard.... More

We were pleased with the room. It was very large with a flat screen tv and patio doors that opened into the courtyard. The courtyard had a corn hole game setup and access to the pool. The building is old so with that comes the downside. The room is very, very bright. The window dressings are wood mini blinds. They... More

What a hidden little gem in Venice, Florida! This is an older motel from the early 60's and the first impression may not be what you expect. But once inside the office, you meet the very pleasant staff and get your room assignment. Like old motels from the 60's, you pull your car around to the door and you will... More

We stayed here one night. The rooms we were told have been remodeled however still resembles a 60’s motel. The courtyard was all stone gravel, not very welcoming. It was clean and no bugs, for the price it was OK, don’t expect much more than that, just a place to sleep. Lary1047

We wanted south western florida. We didn't want to spend much money since our time was going to be at the beach. We were going with low tide at night. But, wanted a clean room. The bathroom was also very clean. My trips are always based around cleaniness. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The area was easy... More
