Family of 4 plus a well mannered pitbull booked an affordable room as a walk-in. Happy to meet the new owners, as of 2 weeks prior, both working hard, friendly and up front about the "condition" of the hotel. Didn't mind the outdated room as it was very spacious compared to new construction hotels. Stayed on the back side, where a manatee could be viewed grazing on the mangroves, 10 ft away, and heard talk of a 6ft gator frequenting the canal. Excellent pool, classy room upgrades are in progress (we got a peek). The owners and staff were all very professional and friendly(first name basis). They have a general kindness and personal touch that seems to be lacking in so many corporate facilities. Three new heavy duty laundry machines and dryers are available for use. The road noise isn't so bad, especially IF the newly rediscovered, vintage, roadside fountain ponds get operational. The sunset and "big sky" views from the third floor veranda are exceptional. A great spot to hang out with a glass of wine at the end of a hard vacation day. The Dean family absolutely recommends The Veranda to anyone, and cant wait to see the improvements on a return trip in August.

My husband, son and I stayed here over the July 4th long weekend. Check in was smooth and friendly. We learned the Motel had recently been bought by new owners and we're told several times that they are remodeling. We stayed on the 3rd floor backside. Our room was quite spacious and clean. We meet the owner who was remodeling some rooms on the 3rd floor and let us peek in on a room he was working on. He was very friendly and excited about the upgrades he is making to the Motel. He told us all rooms will come with a fridge, microwave and flat screen tv. I am glad they are remodeling the rooms cause we love coming to Englewood for vacation and the Veranda Inn is the best place to stay that is still reasonable and a short 10 min away from the beach.
They have an awesome pool too that stays open late.
The name is to change once the renovations are completed to Gem Coast Inn. Can't wait to go back next year and stay in a newly remodeled room!
