The Inn at the Beach is a wonderful option for those interested in staying in the Venice Florida area. This is our second stay and it was just as delightful as the first. The hotel is more of a motel, with separate entrances to each room. The rooms are functional and very clean. The service is terrific. Towels and beach chairs are available. The lobby always has free snacks and a continental breakfast that is more expansive than most. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and the location (across from the beach) can't be beat.
