Inn at the Beach is lovely we go once a year and are always pleased with the service, cleanliness and location just across the street from the beach.
The rooms are very spacious and alway immaculate. The staff is kind & courteous.
This is the only place to stay when visiting venice.

We were looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay for a funeral. When we found we could stay so close to the beach for the price we were delighted to book at Inn at the Beach in Venice. It was more than clean and comfortable, it was charming.

It was a nice suprise to find a microwave and minifridge. The microwave popcorn was one of the nice little touches, something we took advantage of.

The staff was welcoming and helpful ... talking us through directions to the hotel from our cellphone. There were always snacks available in the lobby. The Continental Breakfast was plentiful.

The beach was just across the street. Beautiful and relaxing. We didn't even have time for the pool because the beach was so nice.

Not only would I stay again, I'd return on purpose for vacation.

Note - if you're planning to shop downtown, the stores close early 5:30, so plan accordingly.

The extremely attentive and kind staff - especially Dee - made our visit more pleasant than expected. The filtered water available 24/7 and the fresh fruit were great, and our rowdy family had many requests that were graciously attended to.

The beach two minutes away is clean and wide, with dolphins and rays popping up every now and then. Swimming was wonderful and the quaint town up the street is adorable. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the Inn in September of this year while visiting family in the area. Loved our room. We had the 2 bedroom/2 bath condo room which also had a small patio. Very clean... beds were extremely comfy and the bathrooms were modern and spacious. Decor was also very nice. Slept like a champ! The pool area is small but nice and clean. One thing I noticed on the first night of our arrival is that there are no times posted as to when you can use the pool/hot tube area so my husband and I enjoyed it late into the night. It's very laid back on the property and no one really bothers you so we liked that as well. This place appeals to families/couples or older folks so that may contribute to the relaxed attitude of the staff.
The downtown area is lovely and Venice is a beautiful quiet area......key word being quiet. If you are looking for this type of vacation you have hit the jackpot! We have vacationed in Siesta Key for the past few years and personally we liked that area better so that is the only "not really so bad" of my review. We did find a great place to enjoy a beautiful sunset, good food and drink just down the way at Sharky's. If we stay in Venice again...we would stay here.

Room Tip: We requested the condo room on bottom floor (they only have a few rooms like this) because it had a patio area. The room was great, no complaints. Beds slept better than our own! The kitchen doesn't have an oven though so don't plan on doing alot of cooking in this room. The patio area was tiny and we had a view of their storage bin but it allowed us to be outside so it was ok and the room quality made up for this.

The hotel is clean, pleasant, and more well-appointed than it appears in the pictures on travel websites. The location is utterly unbeatable; I don't think you can get closer to Venice Beach, and even though it straddles two driving thoroughfares, the location around the hotel is calm and attractive.

Parking is ample, and you can walk to downtown shops in less than 10 min. I greatly enjoyed morning walks on the beach and a stroll to brunch at Upper Crust bakery downtown. (The hotel's complimentary breakfast isn't great, but that wasn't a problem as I prefer to dine out. The free bottles of water more than made up for it.)

My room was larger than I expected or needed, and having a nearly full-service kitchen was a fun bonus. The king bed was super comfortable, TV modern, and bathroom lighting bright and flattering. The cleanliness and daily service leave nothing to be desired!

I would absolutely stay there again, it was such a great value. And I love that they're small & not corporate enough to reward return customers with specials and personal recognition!
