“Tropical hideaway with comfort and class”
Reviewed 31 July 2009

Our stay was flawless from the moment we were warmly welcomed at the front desk until we checked out. The Inn at the Beach is classy and comfortable. The rooms have been totally updated with gorgeous travertine floors, crown molding, warm colors and luxurious linens. Free WiFi, lovely toiletries and a sparkling pool complete the package. There's even a continental plus breakfast each morning. The location is ideal for all your beach and town activities. We will definitely stay there again soon as Venice is a quaint and friendly destination. Denise/ Zionsville, In

With less than a week to plan a spontaneous getaway vacation, my husband and I debated several "beach" locations, but eventually settled on Venice, FL, since I am familiar with the area as my grandparents winter there. When it came to lodging, Inn At The Beach was my first choice, I had seen it before on my way to Venice Beach and I thought it was a "too good to be true" scenario. We called and found their rates to be more than reasonable, especially considering the proximity to the beach--DIRECTLY across the street.

I must say that our room was MORE than I hoped for, and as someone who is a bit of a "germaphobe" and never very happy with "Hotels", this place was the CLEANEST property I have ever vacationed. Futhermore, my husband and I both commented on how it did not feel like a "hotel" at all! We truly felt as though we were staying in someone's beach house. The cheery yellow paint, the huge windows, and the QUIET atmosphere all won us over. Throughout the week we had several guests staying in the units on either side of us, families even, and we did not hear one PEEP out of anyone.

The pool was very clean, warm, and relaxing. Several nights we had the pool all to ourselves!

The staff was extremely welcoming, helpful, and friendly. As we checked out at the end of the week, they let us know we were welcome to use the pool/property for the rest of the day if we wished. Unfortunately we were beginning our long drive home, but we WILL definitely be back!

As a Floridian, I have been around resorts and hotels all of my life. This was a wonderful surprise. It is quiet and quaint. The entire experience was peaceful and relaxing. The Hotel Staff was a pleasure, as well as the enitre experience. The grounds and rooms were immaculately maintained. We will return as soon as possible and would recommend it to quests who want a private "non-inclusive" experience.

My wife and I both work high-stress jobs and needed a few days away to re-charge ourselves. We chose this resort, based largely on Trip Advisor reviews...and it was fantastic. Less than two hours from our home in Tampa, we knew that Venice was a desireable destination....great beaches....a variety of quality dining choices...and fun shopping in a small city that has a kind-of eclectic feel. We booked three days in a 1-bedroom "Garden Suite." It was comfortable, modern and completely updated (we've stayed in some pretty pricey "beach" accommodations elsewhere that were a bit too rustic.) It wasn't just well-maintained....it was spotless. The layout is perfect, it's offers a very nice swimming pool, a very good no-charge breakfast and a very short walk to the best stretch of Venice Beach.
Over the years, we have stayed in some very nice resorts....but here is that part that absolutely "wowed" us......the staff. Every time....without exception, whether we approached the desk staff, a member of the maintence crew or the housekeeping staff...we were met with a big smile and a "how can I help you?" All day...every day...the entire staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to make our stay a memorable one. We can't wait to go back!

We stayed in the hotel for one night. The owner advised us as a family to take the appartment of 100m² or about 1000 square feet. It had two bedrooms and a big living area. Everything was very clean and OK. With the beach in a one-minute walk, and a parking in front of our room. Nothing special but excellent for a stay.

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!
