“Good Place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

We booked Oza from good reviews on Travel Advisor and found it to be as described. It was very clean, quiet and had comfortable beds. The bathroom was a bit small but doable and most of all clean! The management was very helpful and accomodating to our needs. It's also in a convenient location to visiting friends and we would stay there again.

Room Tip: If you stay more than a few days you might like a larger room. We had a two queen size room and wit...

with short notice during high season we found ourselves staying at the Oza Inn, reviews I found here here helped to make my decision. the units are efficiencies with everything you would need for a nice stay. our suite was immaculately clean & quiet. we were out and about most of the day and evenings, the Oza Inn was a great choice and we would return

We have been at the Oza inn for a week now while we search for a home in fla. The inn is just off the Taminia trail in Venice. We thought that it was to close to the road. But once on the property the street is hardly noticable at all especially from the rooms.
Bonefish Grill is across the road and groceries and laundry as well. minutes from downtown Venice and Venice Beach. Clean and comfortable rooms, pool. Cookout or cook in room with micro, electric skilet, and crock pot. The staff is vigilant and very helpful. Nice drive to Englewood and Boca Grande. Did I mention the price is affordable? Probably the best part!
Try it! You'll like it!

A friend and I stayed here for 2 nights while on a short trip to south Florida. The Oza Inn is completely smoke free and pet free. It is very reminiscent of a cute, old time motor lodge with circular driveway, efficiency appointments to include small refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, utensils, dishes, chairs on the breezeway, etc.. They even provided dish soap. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was fairly large and very clean and had a homey feel. The bathroom was a little small but sufficient. I felt is was a good value for the money. If I were to come to Venice again, I would happily stay here again and would recommend it to my friends.

Nice, clean, exceptionally courteous staff, and no smoking. Smaller room, but fridge, toaster, microwave make up for it. Definitely would stay again. Tell them you found it on trip advisor for discount.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2011

We went for Labor Day weekend without reservations. When our first choice had no vacancy the girl called Oza Inn for us and we headed over. The owner was very accomodating and got us checked in in no time. The Inn is a motel that is well kept with clean rooms, though the bathroom needed an update. The pool was very nice and clean. We went to Venice for the beach and this motel is less than ten minutes away. There is a beautiful Albertson's across the street with a wonderful prepared food section. Overall we had a great weekend and enjoyed our stay.

While you are waiting to be checked in, you can enjoy various complimentary cold drinks or simply get fresh water with piece of lemon or orange.

We will get you check in no time.

Pleasure to know someone recognize our front personal effectiveness.
