Exceptional value, close to the beach.

Posted Nov 28, 2016
Pros: We found the beds to be comfortable, the location is quiet and safe. The value for the price paid was very good. Coffee, tea and fruit in the lobby
Cons: The TV is a little small for the size of room, but that was a relatively small issue.
Location: Immediately across from a beautiful public beach with guard towers and free parking. Within easy driving distance of downtown restaurants and shopping
This hotel was everything advertised and more. Not only clean, comfortable and nicely furnished, but literally across the street from lovely beach access and public parking. It is convenient to the local shops and restaurants and the staff are helpful and courteous.

Great Stay

Posted Nov 5, 2016
Location: East walk to town. Ate at some really good restaurants. Breakfast at Croissant & Co was the best. You have to have an almond croissant.
The hotel was great. Very friendly staff. Everyone made you feel very welcome

great location

Posted Nov 5, 2016
Pros: Across the street from the beach and close to shopping and restaurants
Cons: We have stayed here before and have always been very satisfied. However this time saw a definite decline in the quality of the friendless of the staff, the cleanliness of the room, the breakfast offerings. We'd still probably stay there again but a little disappointed compared to what we had experienced on previous visits
Location: Close to beach and Main Street Venice

Enjoyable, restful stay

Posted Oct 20, 2016
Pros: The room and grounds were extremely clean. The room was small but had just the right features. Friendly and accommodating staff. The breakfast was fine and included yogurt and fresh fruit. Wonderful location just across the street from the beach and a short walk to shops and restaurants in town. Very beautiful, historic and bicycle friendly town!
Cons: The A/C unit was a bit loud. The water pressure in the shower could be stronger.
Location: Venice beach is across the street. We biked to Caspersen Beach and found many sharks's teeth and other pretty shells. Venice Musem,Theater & Sharky's

Great place to stay!

Posted Oct 9, 2016
Pros: Friendly staff !
Location: Downtown Venice. Quaint with many good Italian restaurants just a few blocks away. Walked to it during the day but drove at night w/no issue parking.
My wife and I were vacationing in Vero Beach but were forced to evacuate due to hurricane Matthew. We started checking available hotels on the Gulf coast and found Inn at the Beach in Venice, FL that wasn't overpriced and luckily still had room available. What luck! This hotel is right across the street from the beach, room was clean and was actually like an efficiency apartment with a full fridge, cooktop, dishes, etc. The hotel served continental breakfasts including pastries from a local bakery. They also provided free to use beach chairs and umbrellas which we used at the beach each day. Saved us at least $50 from renting. If we ever visit the sun coast again We would stay here.

Always a great place to visit.

My family has been staying with this motel for the past 20 years due to its location, excellent facilities and super friendly staff. It is a little on the pricey side, but clean updated motels are few and far between on Venice Beach so this is and will remain our go to home away from home.

Wonderful stay

Posted Sep 12, 2016
Pros: The location is perfect and the rooms are beautiful.
Cons: It's time to upgrade the sheets
Location: The area is known for the beaches. You'll see lots of people looking for fossilized shark teeth in the sand and water here.
We had a fabulous weekend get away at Inn at the Beach. Walk across the street and you are on Venice beach.....can't get much more convenient. The room we had was more like a little apartment than a hotel room. The furniture was comfortable, nice TV, we enjoyed having a little kitchen with a full fridge and freezer. They have a nice continental breakfast each morning which was great; muffins, scones, etc from a local bakery along with yogurt and fruit. The little shampoos and body washes are wonderful. The desk will give you beach towels and chairs if you need them. The pool is nice and perfectly clean. The only thing I would improve is the sheets. They were a bit rough. It's a small place so if you want to stay here you'd better plan ahead once the busy season arrives.
