Inn at the Beach
Ranked #2 of 13 Hotels in Venice
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2009

We were looking for an inexpensive hotel by the beach in Venice. We found the Inn at the Beach! Check in was unusually easy, without all of the usual question and answer. We were treated like they wanted our business. A walk across the meticulous parking lot to our room we knew we had made a great decision! The room impressed us with the feeling that we were in a 5 star hotel, neat, clean, & fresh! Plantation shutters over the thermal windows! The pool, although warm was clean & well maintained! Everything about this little resort was pleasing, we highly recommend if you want a nice reasonable place to stay while in Venice, by all means go to Inn at the Beach!

A pint-sized Ritz-Carlton! Indeed, we now prefer this hotel to our old haunt in the area, the Sarasota Ritz. NB: This hotel is not Ritz-fancy. But it is Ritz-clean, Ritz-well-maintained, and a fabulous value. They have thought of everything. Our entire family loves this hotel. IATB and its owners and managers should be a case study (in how to run a hotel) by the Harvard Business Review. Bravo!

The staff was friendly and attentive. Our room was excellent: clean, simple and light, and very comfortable. We had stayed with them several years ago and it seems everything has been renovated recently. It rained quite a bit while we were there, so the feel of the room was extremely important. The beach is right across the street, and the shops of Venice very close by. On a rainy day, it fit the bill perfectly. With the small kitchen area, and several grocery stores you can eat when you like. The only drawback in the area was the lack of time frames for any of the local restaurants for dinner. If you stay at the beach until after sundown, seems there isn't much close by that's open late for dinner.

This was our 3rd visit to Inn At the Beach and we've loved each time. It's fast becoming our "home away from home"!!! Everything is clean and well-maintained from the pool, exterior and interior rooms. Amenities are lovely. And it's right across from the Gulf of Mexico and its breathtaking sunsets. We're Floridians so go when the season is over...a great escape for us. Venice is a charming town and the Inn is within walking distance.

Our stay at Inn at the Beach was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were large and clean, and the location was perfect. The area was quiet and there were plenty of activities and things to do. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend it to a friend!

Feels secluded, practically on the beach. Room was clean and updated. I know central Florida hotels don't think of themselves as tropical but I sure would have liked a little tropical fruit around for breakfast. But, I know, apples and bananas are cheap and you Yankees would be afraid of a mango or a pineapple, LOL. Otherwise, breakfast was standard hotel fare--oatmeal, muffins, bagels, coffee, oj. No, not fresh squeezed. Again, yankees wouldn't know the difference and Floridians can get it anytime. It just would make it a touch nicer to have fruit juice and something a bit more exotic. I mean, I'm on VACATION, ya know?

The only thing lacking-and most beach hotels do this, inadequate places to hang wet swimsuits. At least this time we didn't have dive gear! Hard enough to find places to hang wet towels but when you factor in swimsuits, well, you have to get creative in most hotel rooms. Between the strong ocean wind and it being a public walkway, the railing was a bit inappropriate. Nothing dried on the chairs outside the door and I was worried that someone would steal our stuff.

I'd recommend the Crow's Nest restaurant but be sure you don't dawdle on the beach and end up going to dinner at 8:30 or so. They have live, "entertainment," and you can't get seated downstairs. If you've done upstairs 2 days in a row, well, the Publix isn't too far to drive.
