Reviewed 23 March 2011

I had been planning this vacation stay with Inn At the Beach for over 6 months, and everything went as planned when we arrived. They were very accomodating, had our room ready for us early, and provided us with everything we needed to settle in for our week's stay.

The room was always spotless, breakfast is available on site, they have laundry machines on site, a heated 85 degree pool, a hottub, soda/ water machine, and plenty of parking spaces in front of the hotel and in the courtyard.

We were across one street from being directly on the beach. It took about two minutes to be standing in the ocean from our room. Checking in and out were easy as expected. This hotel's customer service attitude will be very hard to find elsewhere! I give them 10STARS!

My husband and I had to come to Venice at the spur of the moment regarding a busiiness venture. We were able to get a room for two nights at this wonderful hotel. The location near the beach was perfect. It was so quiet and peaceful.
Because our flight arrived early in the morning, we got to the hotel well before check-in time. However; they immediately called housekeeping to get our room ready and within 10 minutes we were given the key. The front desk service and attitude was outstanding. The continental breakfast was not lavish, but it was fresh and plentiful. We will definitely stay here again.

We had a good time while we were in Venice visiting a relative. Honestly, Venice isn't the type of place we would normally have stayed if it wasn't for family in the area. But there were both positive and negative aspects of this hotel.

PROs
- Nice location with view of Gulf
- Staff were friendly and professional
- Crib was in room as expected
- Cleaning was done everyday
- Walking distance to Venice during reasonable weather conditions
- Very easy beach access
- Affordable suites for the location

CONs
- The carpet in our room was old and dirty (felt uncomfortable for our then 11 month old son to be crawling/playing on it)
- Furniture in room was also not in great shape and should be replaced because it looked and felt kind of old and worn
- The kitchen was not super up-to-date but nice enough
- Continental breakfast included a lot of mini cereal boxes and muffins that looked like the same quality you'd find at a gas station. I wasn't impressed.

Overall, we wouldn't stay here again. It felt more like a motel rather than a hotel. Not sure what it's officially classified as. Venice is a very sleepy beach town with a much older community. If you're into that type of vacation, then this place is probably the only real option in Venice. Although, there is another place we heard about called The Beachcomber which is supposed to similar to this one, but is right on the beach. If we were to visit this area again, we'd stay in Sarasota, FL. It has nicer hotels to choose from and has a lot more culture/restaurants.

We walked in on a whim, the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, the room was beautiful, and the price was awesome. I definitely recommend this resort for anyone looking for a place to escape and relax on the beach!

We stayed here after reading the reviews on Trip advisor. As we frequent Florida regularly, it was nice to go somewhere different for a few days 'beach side' and peaceful.
Venice is like stepping back in time not a place if you want a hectic pace.
We really enjoyed our few days and the hotel was very accomodating and relaxing.
We took a room with veranda looking over the beach, but the weather turned incredibly hot and humid so it spoilt any sitting outside.
The beach was the municiple beach with life guards - it was fine, but we found a beautiful beach Caspersen beach, natural and remote with shorline dominated by natural foliage and close by facilities.
The hotel was very clean, obliging, unassuming and really just the ticket for a few days R&R. Not really the place for kids, but they have well appointed rooms to cater for families.
I would say well done to the management on a good job and I feel we had value for money.
Sharkies Restuarant on the beach was a delight although a bit expensive as these restuarants are when in a prominent location such as this. Go and enjoy!
