We arrived in Venice knowing little about this community and without a reservation...just passing through for one night and somehow landed here! It was not the type accommodations we usually book but it was not bad. It is a basic motel with a central fenced in pool area that looked just fine. There are 2 doors to the unit...one from... More

Stayed here for 9 nights in October 2016. The hotel is very basic but very good value for what you pay. Room was cleaned and bedding changed daily. I had an issue with a noisy fridge and it was immediately changed by the owner.Only other issue was that the soap and shampoo were never replaced but if you asked, the... More

Floors were disgusting. Making my feet black. No soap. No extra paper towels. The utensils smelled bad. The remote to the tv doesn't even work properly. Fan makes noise. Beds are too small. No extra pillows. This place was horrible.

We spent two nights (midweek) at this motel. The outside doesn't look like much, but the courtyard, which is accessible only from guest rooms, is a tranquil oasis. Saw folks out there in the morning drinking coffee, reading the paper. The rooms were very clean, and the terrazzo means no icky, sticky carpet. Keurig coffee machines in the rooms, plus... More

My husband, my school-age stepson and I stayed at the Island Sun Inn. We wanted a location fairly close to the beach and Venice's walkable downtown but also close to relatives in the area. I was frankly surprised at the lack of options in Venice, especially for the time of year. My relatives told me that many locals flee north... More

This place must be a well-kept secret!! Our room was very clean and comfortable....in some ways, it was like stepping back through time!! The price was nice, especially considering we got a kitchenette....it made the room feel as though we rented a little vacation condo!! There were even sliding doors that opened up to a really nice pool area!! We... More

We went to Venice Beach on Aug. 3 - 6th to celebrate our 5 yr anniversary. My first impression of this hotel was surprising! Upon unlocking, and opening the door, I was greeted with the freshest, clean smell ! That's hard to do in these older motels! The staff is extremely friendly, efficient and very helpful. There is a restaurant... More

There is a terrible smell in the rooms and it's a very dirty place and needs updated. The floors in the room was dirty and disgusting. The pool was the only nice thing about the place. I couldn't wait to leave this place.

Very run down and disarming odor in the lobby, disappointed at the amount of children unattended by parents running and screaming through the parking lot. If you are looking for a nice quiet place this is not the place for you.

We needed to find a reasonably priced hotel in Sarasota. All the searching and weeding through hotels brought me to this hotel in Venice, which is about a 30 minute drive. It had good reviews and everyone talked about cleanliness. I thought as long as it's clean and comfy we will be happy. It was very clean and pretty comfortable... More
