Our objective was to be near a bike rental store and within reasonable distance to the fabulous bike trails in Venice which we accomplished. The hotel cleanliness and amenities surpassed our expectations. The owner was always available to answer questions and service your needs. We would stay here again on another visit.

An older property kept in excellent condition by the current owners. A family operation. Owners work to keep everything in the units and outdoor areas in good condition. Nice heated pool. Would recommend this property.

Nice, clean motel located very close to Venice and Caspersen beaches, about a 5min drive. The motel is only accessible from one way so you must make a U Turn to head towards the beaches.
