If you want something cheap this is the place.

I feel the owners have done their best with an old run down facility. It is clean and staff is friendly.

Cons: no phone
Location: One mile to ocean
As we pulled around to our door, my husband said "what kind of place have you brought me to"? Do not let the outside of the room deter you. Once inside you will discover a hidden jewel. The rooms are spotless ! The floors are tiled so you dont have carpet that everyone has walked on in their bare feet. There is a refrigerator, microwave and Keurig. There is a table that allows two to sit. You open up your french doors onto a lovely courtyard that has a beautiful pool. charcoal grills, tables and chairs etc. This little gem has a laundry, ice machine soda machine. We stayed here for 5 nights. If I had one issue it would be that there are no phones in the rooms, but it being the cell phone age really not a problem. Although not owned by the motel, there is a restaraunt on grounds called the Blu Bistro, It serves breakfast and lunch and the food is divine. We will definitely stay here again

Great place to stay

Posted Oct 18, 2016
Pros: The courtyard area was my favorite!
This was a great place to stay, very clean. Has a Bistro in the front which was convenient, located very centrally. Amazing courtyard with pool and patio sets that every room has access to! Will definitely stay there again!

Convenient downtown Venice Florida

Posted Oct 11, 2016
Pros: Convenience and price
Cons: There is no place to sit comfortably in the room. So I brought in the "beach" chairs from outside to watch tv.
Location: Can't beat the location for the price.
Nice journey back to a 1950's (mid century) motel. Clean but clearly dated and because of the age a good bargain. Everything you might need is walkable. A Publix market, good dining, laundry and all the best doctor's offices. Very courteous and helpful staff.
