“Clean quiet and across the street from the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

We just stayed one night. The room was exceptionally clean. The inn is directly across from the beach so we walked over at 7:30 pm and watched the sunset. The experience was made more enjoyable by a group of elderly men who get together and play music during the early evenings. The inn provides fruit and cereal for breakfast but we chose to go into town and have breakfast at the Bella Luna cafe which was delicious. We usually stay at bed and breakfasts because I enjoy the feeling of staying in a home however I enjoyed my stay at the Inn very much.

Love returning each time to Inn at the Beach.
Received an upgrade because we are return guests and we had a view of the beach...loved the room, bed is comfy with plenty of pillows, refrigerator, table and chairs plus a patio facing the beach with our own chairs outside - wish we more time to enjoy... The AC is a little too loud and we had to keep turning the TV up to '70' something to listen late in the evening and we were concerned that it might have bothered other guests.
We had a four hour drive and upon check in the female at the desk could've been more welcoming...but the others in the front office were very warm and friendly providing towels and digger for the beach we had forgotten. Continental breakfast is more than adequate and coffee is available all day with fruit and muffins.
This is our favorite place and have decided that this will be the only place for us...we have tried a few different rooms so if your in the need for a nice 2 bedroom suite on the beach - this is the place you want to be while your are in Venice. ( We brought family there during the Winter )
Thanks - see you soon :)

The staff, rates, area, room and even the towels were very pleasing. I will definetly come here again. All roves have a Kitchenette which was a surprise because we just came in for the evening to look at the area homes for sale.

Room Tip: I loved the kitchenette.

Aside from the person at the front desk not very friendly and the a/c was noisy our stay was excellent. The accommodations were very comfortable. The room had everything to make your stay memorable. Continental breakfast was standard fare. The beach was a few hundred feet from the Inn. The room has a small patio off the back with a table and chairs where one could enjoy breakfast among the beautiful foliage. Very enjoyable and relaxing.

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Inn On The Beach. The room was bright and very clean. The service remarkably good and friendly. The breakfast was continental, BUT it was available all day. Venice Beach is huge and safe with easy access. The Inn is a much better deal than the large chain hotels at similar prices. With only 49 well-appointed rooms, they know their guest and made us feel very comfortable. We will definitly stay there again.

Room Tip: Go early or make reservations.

The Inn on the Beach was recommended to us by friends. OMG! We were so impressed and happy with everything. The room was bright and cheerful. The room was clean and comfortable.
The breakfast items were individually wrapped and fresh. There was coffee, hot tea, cold water, fruits, candy available throughout the day. The pool was pleasant and perfect. The beach is across the street which a very easy walk. The office offers chairs, sand scoops, towels to use if you go to the beach instead of using the pool. It can't say enough of how enjoyable the stay was. I know we will be back. There are nice restaurants downtown which is very convenient from the location of the Inn on the Beach.
PS:
We flew into Clearwater/St. Pete airport and found it very easy driving to and from the Inn. We took 41 on our way there and 75 on the way back to the airport. Maybe an hour drive.

Room Tip: Any room would be great.

We stayed here for a quick visit to see family. It is not a luxurious hotel but nice, old America charm. Rooms are clean and efficient. We had double beds for the four of us which were a bit snug. Wish they had queen beds. Great location close to the beach. Air Conditioning had a hard time keeping up and the first night it kept shutting off but the front desk quickly came up and punched a button to reset something and fixed it. Not a luxurious hotel but for the area, a great location and nice quaint local hotel.
