I have never stayed in a motel before but as I sit in my room writing this, I am so very pleased. 24- hour checkin, as we got here around midnight, and the folks at the counter were so very attentive and...

My family of 5 stayed here on a shark tooth hunting trip. This place was perfect. Clean, spacious and near all types of restaurants and the beach. Their deluxe room sleeps six and had a kitchen. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations. We will definitely be coming back here.

We didn't have a reservation but was able to get a room for 7 nights at a very reasonable rate. The owners were just awesome! When I told them we might need a few more... More

I have stayed here numerous times over the past 3 years, and love this piece of Old Florida. The rooms are quieter than any modern motel due to having cinder block walls, and no one is on your backside so you also get windows front and back. Each time I am there (usually for a week's stay) I find improvements... More

It's a small Motel right off of the main rd., close to everything. The room is very clean, the owners are very nice, the staff is also very nice. The rooms have a small kitchen area, sink, frig, microwave. Very cute and helpful. We will be staying there again, no doubt about it.

The Sunshine Motel is an older motel. The staff were very friendly upon check in. It has a small heated pool. It is probably the smallest room I have ever stayed in, but for the price it is a good value. The room was spotless! It had a small flatscreen TV with lot's of channels. The only area of concern...

This was a very cozy and convenient place to stay on our recent trip to the Venice area. This is not a fancy hotel but was awesome and had many conveniences including a mini fridge, microwave, kitchen sink, plates and silverware. The room was well cleaned and the sheets and bed very comfortable. The owners and hotel staff were extremely... More
