“Great location, extremely clean & very friendly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Cleanest place we have ever stayed. Comfortable with wonderful location. The office staff were excellent. Very attentive and very nice. Very walkable location. Park your car and walk everywhere (beach, restaurants, shops.). Recently stayed here for our 25th anniveray and love it. Our king efficiency was a tad smaller then we expected but exceeded all other expectations. The continential breakfast and all day coffee service were absolutely wonderful. We borrowed beach / sand shovels from the front office and had three wonderful days of 'hunting' for shark teeth and even a day trip to 'hunt' shells on Sanibel Island. We choose The Inn due to the on-line reviews and they were spot on. Would absolutely stay here again (even though a bit beyond our usual budget)!

Room Tip: We chose a king 'efficiency' on the ground floor facing the beach. Not a huge room or beach...

The staff was excellent.

The room was quite nice. We had one with a kitchenette in it. Bed was comfortable.

A quick walk across the street and you are on the beach with the clear water that looks turquoise blue. Sand is unique. At first glance it looks dirty, but it has tiny pieces of obsidian (black volcanic glass) in it.

Worth a return trip.

Locations - Excellently located in a quiet neighborhood area just across the road from Venice's public beach, it's within easy walking distance of downtown Venice as well. Plenty of good restaurants and shops to walk to.
Accommodations - we picked this place due to the great reviews, and the reviews were spot on. The rooms (we had a mini-suite) were comfortable with nice furnishings, and were kept spotless throughout our week there.
Amenities - Great little breakfast, free unlimited water, nice pool area, towels provided, rooms had everything we needed to cook if that's the preference.
Service/Staff - Friendly and well-done, could not have been better.
Other - While they have some beach chairs as loaners, they gave us a number to call to rent two chairs and an umbrella for the entire week, at a cost of $70. (He also rents bikes) On the beach that would have been $30 a day.
Cons - one minor blip with the safe which they attended to promptly, and unfortunately, the Red Tide was acting up the week we were there. That didn't keep us off the beach, but coughing was commonplace.

A small, very attractive, very clean and very friendly hotel. Will definitely go back. Great location across the street from beach. Fresh coffee always available. Close to downtown. Quiet and very peaceful for reading.

Room Tip: Second floor facing the beach has the best rooms.

This place was a wonderful vacation getaway for our family. We had 6 of us in the 2 bedroom suite and there was plenty of room! Extremely clean and prestine. Staff was very friendly and were able to accommodate us extremely well. The kids loved the pool and hot tub and we loved the beach across the road. Breakfast was fast and kid friendly which helped a lot in feeding our busy family every morning. Overall, a very quiet and relaxing place to forget our winter blues!

I was bit worried when I saw our room was on first floor facing the main street but there was nothing to worry about. We didn't hear anything from above ( and the room was occupied) and heard no street noise. It was the quietest motel/hotel we have ever stayed in! The beach is directly across the street, convenient for walking the beach several times a day. The walk into Venice for shopping, restaurants or an afternoon outdoor jazz concert was easy with lots of shade along the way and places to sit and rest in the long parkway.
The room was clean, housekeeping service good, breakfast good, coffee excellent and the bottled water a nice perk. The towels both in the room and at the pool very nice. The pool area well maintained, loved the little fountains and peaceful. The only thing that could be improved would be to replace the three small area rugs in the room, they were stained and looked dirty.

The Inn is without a doubt the cleanest (spotless), comfortable and friendliest Inn (hotel) we have ever stayed. Great location walk across a non-busy street to the beach. Helpful staff who recommended good restaurants and places to see. The continental breakfast was excellent. I will always try to stay at the Inn whenever coming to Venice. Met a gentleman who has been coming to Venice every winter for 10 years with his wife and said that they stayed at the Inn for their first 5 years before they started renting a condo. Highly recommend this place.
