Inn at the Beach
Ranked #2 of 13 Hotels in Venice

Reviewed April 19, 2014

The beach is right across the street from this place. Moreover, the historic part of Venice where all the restaurants are, also is within easy walking distance. The hotel is friendly and clean and had all you would expect. They serve breakfast, but it's rather badic.

Stayed for a week-can't beat the location directly across from the beach and walking distance to downtown. Rooms are clean and the staff is eager to please. Like many boutique hotels rooms are not overly generous in size. Some issues with tv and internet (very slow); but otherwise perfect. Would stay again.

I stayed with my family for a few nights during my Xmas break from college. It's very close to the beach, cleanly. The staff were friendly and happy to see you and happy to help. Their breakfast continental was phenomenal. I'm not much for breakfast foods at all and they supplied it with fresh donuts and slices of cake that were so good and were fresh. That was my absolute favorite about the hotel and probably my trip to Florida. I will be back when I visit Venice again!

We booked a room for 6 days, it was "supposed" to be a 1st floor garden suite. When we got there, we were informed that we were on the 2nd floor. No big deal. The rooms were tidy, but not well furnished. The bed was lumpy and the cable TV was terrible. 10 channels and no movies? (I mention this because it rained) The continental breakfast was passable, cereal, fruit, pastries, & coffee. Some of the staff were friendly, others not so much. I realized that the hefty price we paid was for our proximity to the beach. The Inn provided sharks tooth sieves, towels, and chairs- which was very convenient. It was a gouge, but we had a fun time nonetheless. The town of Venice was absolutely lovely. We're began talking about retiring to the "left coast."

We just returned from a 5 day stay and are still talking about how wonderful the accommodations were. We stayed in a one bedroom suite on the bottom floor. The bathroom had a separate shower and bathtub. The bedroom was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. The recliners in the living area were very comfortable as well. We had all the space we needed. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful and positive. And the walk across the quiet street to the beach. How awesome! We look forward to coming back!!!

This was our second stay here and, again, it was wonderful. Great rooms and staff. Nice breakfast. Complimentary bottled water.
This is across the street from Venice Beach and an easy walk to the charming downtown. We will make this an annual event.

We stayed three nights at the Inn and had a very enjoyable stay. However, there are a few things that the management should take note of. First off, the place is lovely, close to town and just across the street from a very nice beach. The staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating. But on our second day our room was not cleaned. It was disappointing to come home from a long day out to a room that was a mess, no clean towels, un maid bed, etc. I told the front desk and they brought me towels and apologized, but for the price I paid, that should never have happened. The rooms were modern and bright and we loved our private patio. They gave free bottles of water all day, and the coffee and tea was always set up in the lobby, which I thought was very nice. The breakfast was just okay, the coffee was good, but there was really nothing healthy offered. My only other suggestion would be that they put a large privacy fence around the pool, sitting out there would be much nicer if you didn't feel like you were in the middle of a parking lot. However, I would stay there again...Hopefully there will be a fence around the pool and something healthy at the breakfast bar.
