The Island Sun Inn was such a great surprise. We spent Christmas at Caspersen Beach hunting shark teeth for the 2nd year in a row. This inn was pretty much the closest place to the beach. I called and booked the rooms a few weeks before so that we wouldn't have to drive back to Bonita Springs. I was so... More

I stayed at this hotel 3 nights while visiting family and friends in Venice. This is definitely a locally-owned hotel as the front desk is only open from 9am to 9pm. However, if you call ahead they are pretty good about making accommodations for later check in. Some of the front desk staff were excellent while others could have been... More

When we arrived Christmas evening at our vacation rental on venice beach, it was a disaster. The living room was flooded and the property was unlivable. In spite of calling the vacation rental company, we got no response. 6 of us with two kids -- it was a tough night. Luckily, TripAdvisor pointed us to island sun inn, where there... More

It's a great place to stay. Very comfortable bed which is number one for me. The French doors open to the pool with a fridge and microwave in the room. A flat panel tv and small table with two chairs top it off. If you can get a good discount price, this is the place to stay!

Like others have stated, the hotel is dated but kept up for the most part. I knew this going in, so I wasn't surprised when we arrived and it is not why I only gave 1 star. We checked into our room and shortly left after to go to lunch. We were out for maybe a total of 3 hours... More

We have used this hotel 3 times so far and Ted has made everytime a wonderful experience. He is courteous and friendly, professional and always kind. Our rooms have been perfect, housekeeping is efficient and I have no complaints at all. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet and clean place to enjoy a get away

The Island Sun Inn had very clean and neatly decorated rooms. I have seen some reviews that complained that there was no carpet, but to me this made perfect sense. The rooms open up to a large pool, and the beach is nearby. Sand and water would easily clean up on the linoleum floors. The bed was extremely comfortable, and... More

The rooms are dated and could use some remodeling. it turned out to be a rainy weekend but enjoyed the company of friends. Its a fun place for all. This was my second stay at this Motel. Will most likely be back next year for our annual sharks tooth hunt.

Took us back to the 70-80's. No bells and whistles... just simply living! The way we like it. Very clean, quiet atmosphere and unique... The beach's are very close, and lots of restaurants and places to shop. Thanks! The Wainwright's #loveflorida

My husband and I stayed at the Island Breeze Motel for a weekend. We wanted a low priced room for sleep; we knew we'd be out and about for most of our trip. Room was quaint, modest, very clean. The staff were fabulous which is important to us. Shower pressure was strong, plenty of hot water. Very quiet and peaceful... More
