“The Inn at the Beach is Just Right![”
Reviewed January 19, 2009

Our family has stayed at the Inn many times over the past 13 years. We will always stay at the Inn at the Beach when visiting Venice. The accommodations are clean and nicely appointed. Nothing fancy; but just right for a comfortable relaxing stay. The staff is always friendly and helpful. There is also a very nice continental style breakfast typically set up in the lobby. The Inn is a healthy walk to shopping and restaurants and directly across from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

Venice Beach is an "old Florida" town where it's possible to walk to shops, restaurants, the beach and even to the golf course. We've been staying at Inn at the Beach Resort for at least 6 years (a week at Christmas with our son and granddaughter) and always have a very relaxing, peaceful time. The hotel is unbelievably clean, the service is great, everyone is friendly, there's a nice pool and it's across the street from Venice beach. I highly recommend it.

We had been told that the Inn At The Beach was the best place to stay in Venice so we decided t give it a try. We were thrilled. It was a wonderful visit and we look forward to returning again in 2009. The area is beautiful and the shopping and dining choices are excellent. Next time we'll stay there longer.

It's not very often that a hotel surpasses your expectations but the Inn at the Beach did just that. It was such a pleasant place, the grounds were well-kept and the rooms very clean. Even the jacuzzi was hot. Plus, the staff were all very friendly. I would highly recommend it.

My teenage son and I had a perfect trip! We had planned on going back to Tampa or Clearwater and a friend recommended Venice Beach. I'm SO glad we listened. I had done some research on the internet about Inn at the Beach but was still a little skeptical. I decided to just wait and take my chances at getting a reservation. We drove down and when we entered the city I was very impressed, so clean and pretty. We drove on down to the beach and there was the Inn.....BEAUTIFUL. The lobby was inviting and the staff was very friendly. Our room was perfect! The decor was sort of Floridian/Caribbean colors. The flat panel TV was a pleasant surprise. The sheets and bedding are top quality, very comfortable. The continental breakfast was good, including cereal, juices, coffee, yogurt and fresh pastries. The beach is across the street and is one of the prettiest I've ever seen. This beach was not over populated with tourist so it was very relaxing. I'm already planning to return next year to my new FAVORITE vacation spot.

  • Liked — The beds
  • Disliked — Would maybe like something hot on the breakfast bar
