Old style motel, inexpensive, in a great location, within biking distance of historic old downtown Venice. Regular room had a little kitchenette with microwave, refrigerator, table for two, some plates and cutlery. Ice machine and laundry available. Also had a pool. Super nice staff and spotlessly clean! Building is older concrete block, well maintained, but sheets and towels were new.... More

I was surprised when I got here for the price the rooms are very clean, a little small, and the furniture is nice. The ambience seems pretty nice, as well. I like it. Wasn't even aware that this little hotel was even in Venice so you might have to use your GPS or look a little bit out of your... More

Neat, clean and organized! Very pleased! We paid $69 per night for a room that had a queen size bed, a mini kitchen, two TVs, a table and four chairs, two air conditioners, two ceiling fans PLUS a sofa bed plus convenient parking. Great value!

I'd give this a 5 star, but it's not a Hilton or a Hyatt, but other than class of room, this place is as good as it gets on a tight budget (i.e. us)! The motel is an older property right out of the Holiday Inn era of family, "See America First" travel days. It's right on the cusp of... More

My family and I stayed for 2 nights in the middle of July. The hotel is located on the corner of the 2 main roads, but you couldn't hear the traffic inside the rooms. The rooms are small, just big enough for 2 beds, a small table/chairs, a mini fridge/microwave combo and walkspace, but the room was perfect for our... More

Thanks to all of you who have recommended this quaint yet very nice motel here on Trip Advisor. 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 had to come to Florida for an emergency visit due to an ill parent. We drove straight to the motel after driving 18 hours. 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
