We spent two nights (midweek) at this motel. The outside doesn't look like much, but the courtyard, which is accessible only from guest rooms, is a tranquil oasis. Saw folks out there in the morning drinking coffee, reading the paper. The rooms were very clean, and the terrazzo means no icky, sticky carpet. Keurig coffee machines in the rooms, plus... More

My husband, my school-age stepson and I stayed at the Island Sun Inn. We wanted a location fairly close to the beach and Venice's walkable downtown but also close to relatives in the area. I was frankly surprised at the lack of options in Venice, especially for the time of year. My relatives told me that many locals flee north... More

This place must be a well-kept secret!! Our room was very clean and comfortable....in some ways, it was like stepping back through time!! The price was nice, especially considering we got a kitchenette....it made the room feel as though we rented a little vacation condo!! There were even sliding doors that opened up to a really nice pool area!! We... More

We went to Venice Beach on Aug. 3 - 6th to celebrate our 5 yr anniversary. My first impression of this hotel was surprising! Upon unlocking, and opening the door, I was greeted with the freshest, clean smell ! That's hard to do in these older motels! The staff is extremely friendly, efficient and very helpful. There is a restaurant... More

There is a terrible smell in the rooms and it's a very dirty place and needs updated. The floors in the room was dirty and disgusting. The pool was the only nice thing about the place. I couldn't wait to leave this place.

Very run down and disarming odor in the lobby, disappointed at the amount of children unattended by parents running and screaming through the parking lot. If you are looking for a nice quiet place this is not the place for you.

We needed to find a reasonably priced hotel in Sarasota. All the searching and weeding through hotels brought me to this hotel in Venice, which is about a 30 minute drive. It had good reviews and everyone talked about cleanliness. I thought as long as it's clean and comfy we will be happy. It was very clean and pretty comfortable... More

Nice place to stay at when you are in Venice. You need a car to go to the beach, but many restaurants are in walkable distance. Really enjoyed the pool and the area around it. Only negative must be the noisy aircondition.

Great location and enticing pool. How stayed hear for past four years. The only reason to stay elsewhere is if you want luxury and modern accommodations. The location is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping.

I spent 1 night at the Island Sun Inn and was greatly impressed. I got it at a very reasonable rate, and honestly was not expecting too much. I was wrong, it was quiet, quaint, and in a great location. The room was very clean, nice comfortable king size bed, great working A/C, mini fridge, microwave, large flat screen tv.... More
