The hotel staff was superb, the room was so clean and kept up very nicely. I have lived in Florida for well over 30 years and stayed at many hotels on "The Beach", this was by far one of the nicer places we have stayed. My husband and I enjoy coming to Venice for the beautiful beaches. We had a spectacular time, what a nice getaway. We will return--They supply towels for the pool or beach, chairs for the beach, free water, fruit and even a package of popcorn for the microwave in your room & free breakfast. The grounds were beautiful as well.

We just returned from a four day stay at the Inn at the Beach and it was everything we read about. The room was spotless and very bright with all the needs of a family vacation. Full size fridge, stove top, dishes, dish washer, microwave, toaster etc. Whatever the room lacked all you had to do was asked the staff and it was provided. They had chairs and umbrellas for the beach which had great water to swim in. Clear, warm, and shallow enough to have a great time with young children. The pool was our afternoon swim since the temperatures at the beach were too high by then and the pool provided afternoon shade. Had to go to Casperson's Beach for the shark's teeth but the trip was well worth it since once you knew what to look for they were abundant. Only thing wrong with the trip at this time of the year is that most eating establishments seem to close before 9:00 pm and it is hard to tear kids away from the pool before 7:30 and get changed and ready for dinner. One evening we had to eat frozen in the room because the only thing open was the supermarket. The restaurants we did eat in were exceptional. Venice is definitely on our vacation plan in the future and the Inn will be our home.

I've been to several Venices. Venice, Italy, Venice, California, and Venice, Florida. Each has its own charm. But Venice, Florida has one thing the others do not, The Inn at the Beach! The best surprise of our vacation! The Floridian ambiance is only surpassed by the best view in town, right across from Venice beach, the shark tooth capital of the world! The Inn is loaded with complimentary amenities including a wonderful continential breakfast that looks more like a buffet! The rooms are clean to a fault ! The price is very affordable! The staff aims to please! Their attitude was more than friendly and attentive, it was a sincere dedication to serving the guests! Whenever I vacation in Venice, the Inn at the Beach is where I'll stay!

Pretty little place with everything we could have asked for and then some. A standard room came with all the goodies right down to a package of popcorn for the microwave. Complimentary beach towels and bottled water and an in room safe make the beach across the street a "must do." The patio chairs were great for listening to the beach music in the early evening. Dinner at The Crow's Nest is a must. Thanks to a prior post for the recommendation. A special note to allergy sufferers: Don't pass this great little place up because it's an older building. The rooms are bright, clean and there was no tell tale mustiness so prevalent in old Florida buildings. We'll definitely go back!

What a treasure! A good hotel to me has a bathroom with quality hardware and bath essentials, comfortable beds, and excellent customer service. This hotel has it all at an affordable price. The rooms were pleasantly clean and decorated. The lobby always offered cold water, coffee, and snacks throughout the day. The receptionist, LaShelle, was pleasant, positive, and efficient. The beach across the street is unusual because it is an area in which travelers look for shark teeth. Upon asking, the hotel will furnish long handled sifters to help the beach goer look for shark teeth, but in case none are found, a shark tooth and an identifcation map are available at the front desk, so the children won't be disappointed. After the beach trip, the guest can spend time in the swimming pool and jacuzzi. The town of Venice is old Florida at it's best with cute shops and little restaurants. What a find! I'm going back!
