Stayed here this past week. Very clean room with a very comfortable bed. Small window air-conditioner that took a long time to cool the room. This is nothing fancy but has the look and feel of the old Florida tourist motel. Could use coffee makers in rooms since office doesn't open until 9am.

My husband & I stayed there a couple of years ago. We like the same Mom & Pop type places. They are usually priced for what you get. A small, clean place to sleep. WOW! I couldn't believe the prices -- It has more than doubled. If I am going to pay $100 plus per night -- I will add... More

Room was tiny, no place to put a suitcase, no coffee maker, no chest of drawers, no place to put clothes, shower wouldn't drain, ice maker (by the office) was full of water, not ice. Never again......

We have stayed here for years, it is quiet, safe, friendly and homey, it is not modern, fancy or snobby. If you want a 1950's experience you will love this place, if you want the Hilton then go there and pay those prices :)

Just spent 2 nights here on business.Overpriced! The hotel is right off US41 3 blocks from 'downtown' Venice Ave easily walkable. There is plenty of parking downtown though so that is not a problem for shopping, dining etc. The rooms are all different, some slightly larger than others,but some cramped & tiny but seem to have the exact bathroom configuration....tiny...

Just spent 3 nights here as part of our Florida vacation and overall I would say that the place is ok. I booked the room based on the comments that mentioned renovations; the king room we had did have a new shower, new tv and possibly a new mattress, but that is as far as it goes. The bathroom, as...

I gave this place a 5 because it was a very good value for the price. It is an older place that has a cool old time Florida appeal. Maybe not for everyone. It was very clean and was undergoing renovations. I am a fan of firm mattresses but this newly replaced soft mattress and sheets was so comfortable we... More

The staff was very friendly and the room looked clean and "fresh". However, the "Standard King Room" contained a king-sized bed, a small table for two, and a TV stand - and there was no room for anything else, including people! (There was a separate closet and bathroom). Two people would have had to literally stand around that furniture to... More
