Inn at the Beach
Ranked #2 of 13 Hotels in Venice
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2013

This is our favorite place to stay in Venice. The rooms are not large but beautifully decorated and very clean. I recommend a room on the west (ocean side). You won't have a terrific view of the water but it's right across the street. Small pool, cont. breakfast, and a short drive to a walkable downtown.

Room Tip: Second floor, west side toward beach has chairs - nice place for morning coffee.

We stayed in a King size room with a kitchenette. Room was very clean with no smell. Pillows were a bit high/thick. We had stayed 3 nights, and on our last night, we did find in the dresser drawer, 2 pillows that were thinner.
Pool was clean and always the perfect temperature. The pool furniture seemed newer and was very comfortable.
Staff was always helpful, and the hotel and grounds were well maintained.
Continental breakfast had dry cereal, yogurt, English muffins, fruit, sweet rolls and muffins. Along with packets to make hot cereal. They also provided tea and coffee.
There was plenty of parking and the vending/ice machine was located near the pool.
Great location.....across the street from the beach, and you could walk or just a short driving distance to downtown and many great restaurants.

We love the hotel. Great location. Free continental breakfast and free coffee and bottle water all day. Comfortable beds. Only negatives are the pillows are too big (they should get down pillows) Also the wifi was real slow. But overall a great place

Room Tip: We were in room102. Nice suite lots of room

I have stayed here twice. Both times for a short stay. The proximity to the beach and to the charming downtown is what attracted me. The other huge plus for me is that the Inn is not a chain nor does it have a lot of rooms. The staff is very cordial and helpful. The continental breakfast is a great touch with a variety of breakfast foods. Can't wait until my next stay here.

We stayed at the Inn at the Beach for four days. The Inn sits right across the street from the beach and is only minutes away from Casperson and other area beaches. We thought the staff was fantastic and very helpful with restaurant and other recommendations. At breakfast they provide a nice continental spread with delicious pastries in the mix. As you have read in other reviews the wifi could get a bit dodgy at times, but that did not really bother us. We were there to play at the beach and relax. We will definitely make this our home base when we visit Venice Beach in the future.

Room Tip: If you want to hunt for shark teeth checkout a dredger and head over to Casperson Beach.

I attempted to book a room online, as I was surprising my mom for her birthday. I sent them an Email from their site (since you can't book directly online) and nobody responded. Finally I called, and was able to get a reservation by phone. The room is nicely renovated, though some air freshener would be nice. The area is quiet, and the staff is friendly. It is right across the street from the beach, and close to 41. They have lots of little extras.

The hotel is suitable for budget travellers. The breakfast facility is OK, lots of cold food but plastic cutlery and paper plates. The room was quite large but the bathroom was very basic and the beds were murderous. The staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. Admittedly it didn't help having the room right beside the breakfast area and courtyard which resulted in other guests sitting right outside our window whilst eating breakfast.

Room Tip: Go for the 3rd floor
