“wonderful days perfect”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Stayed this weekend and we loved the hotel. We were 4 people were very well accommodated, an apartment with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living room , super comfortable bed, everthing is good , pillows very soft. Bruce gave many tips , super helpful, excellent service, note 1000 for him.
Perfect location, opposite the beach and close to everything. there is a Publix closer. All is perfect. We love all. Excellent staff and service. The hotel provides a good breakfast, and during the day provides water, coffee, tea, ... very good, also provides chair, towel and beach tent all is free. Will definitely will come again, and super recommend.

Room Tip: If you are 4 persons stay at room 105 . It is perfect for 4 persons.

We enjoyed one night at this nice motel, conveniently located across the street from Venice Beach. The room was nice and clean. Personally, I wasn't crazy about the shutters in our first floor location. If you opened them, you compromised privacy and if you closed them, you shut out all of the nice sunshine. The AC was located in a rather inconvenient spot, where it blasted cold air at you, as you stood near the kitchenette area. The furnishings were nice and tropical theme-based, but certainly not on par with my expectations of a 5-star location, based on other reviews here. It was nice to have the mini-fridge and the microwave, along with a couple of free bottles of water and popcorn. The continental breakfast was good. The pool was fairly small - as I said, especially if you are expecting a 5-star pool - but it was large enough for families with children. There was also a small hot tub. The proximity to the beach is definitely a great selling point and worth a bit extra. All in all, it's a nice place to stay, but I would say that the stars range between 3 1/2 and 4, not 5.

Room Tip: First floor rooms could have parking spaces directly in front of them - a nice perk.

Spent two nights in the hotel last week. It's in a terrific spot right across the street from the beach and on Venice Ave which is the main street where all the restaurants are in Venice. The staff couldn't be better. Very friendly, great on recommendations for restaurants and even the right direction to take on the bike path in town. They offered up their sharks teeth collecting devices for me and my daughter without me having to ask. The room was nice with a kitchen and full size fridge and there was plenty of closet space. Overall a great stay.

Room Tip: Pick a room that faces the gulf upstairs

A very nice old school hotel. Great location very close to restaurants and to beach. Great and very nice staff. Very clean. Only issue the window A/C units seem to shut off and on a little to much. Would go back in a heart beat.

That was the first time we stayed at the Inn at the Beach and this was an excellent experience from the time we called to book our reservation to the last day when we left. I do not think you can find another hotel in Venice that is so close to the beach. The service was remarquable, the continental breakfast offered a wide selection and our bedroom was taken care of every day. The swimming pool was nice and clean and the location was at a walking distance from the downtown area where you can several good restaurents and ice cream shops. I am sure we will return

We stayed at the Inn at the Beach last year and were so impressed with the location, cleanliness and helpfulness of the staff we stayed here again this year. The rooms and grounds were immaculate. The staff is friendly and we appreciated the use of the free beach chairs and beach umbrella. The beach is directly across the road. The shopping and dining is within walking or biking distance. The staff will give suggestions on local places to eat and visit. Highly recommended.

First time visitors. First time in Venice Beach. Called Hotel directly, received amazing rate and excellent room with a view to the street and the beach. Rooms, bright, clean and modern. Lots of windows in the room. Cute breakfast (enough to start the day), and nice clean swimming pool. After dinner on the gulf, we walked the beach watched the sun set. Nice to enjoy a mid size hotel friendly staff (needed extra pillows etc) maid delivered to our room within 5 minutes. Great value to enjoy Venice Beach and the downtown strip.
