We were very pleased with the cleanliness of this room . The linens on the beds were very lush and comfortable. The old-fashioned set-up was quaint but handy. A little pricey but considering the area, okay.Sure wish the towels were higher quality and larger.

The front desk is very friendly. The room is very basic and clean. It is convenient to have two doors - one to park and unload your suitcases and the other for entrance to the pool area. It is good for families traveling with children because of the pool and outside games. One of the best features is the restaurant...

Nice clean rooms- friendly staff. It's admittedly not the Ritz Carlton, but was comfortable and clean. The pool was nice (over 8 ft at the deep end) with pool toys, a ping pong table, cornhole and charcoal grills available. We would definitely stay again next time we come to Venice. It's very close to caspersen beach (shark tooth beach) and...

The outside is very deceiving. It is a little dated, but man oh man, the rooms were sooooo sooo clean. The bed was comfy and the pool was awesome!! If we ever go back to Venice, we will def stay there again.

The most striking thing about the island sun inn is how remarkably clean it is. I am saying immaculate. An added bonus was the blue bistro which is adjacent to the motel. Outstanding breakfasts featuring the scone of the day. The motel is less than ten minutes to the Venice beach. The only down side of the inn is the...

The room could have been cleaner. The fan blades were dirty and the bathroom light fixture and bathroom floor corners were dirty. Windows on the french door were dirty and the 2" blinds were missing the wand to open/close them. Pool area was clean and courtyard was nice. Felt that maintenance could have been better as the lights in the...

We booked this place sight unseen online for an overnight stay and were pleasantly surprised. Admittedly we weren't expecting much but we got a lot for our money. The Inn is a square building with rooms around the outside. You enter your room from either the parking lot or by going through the lobby. There's a huge central courtyard, half...

Not going to lie, at first sight we were nervous but when we entered our room we were pleasantly surprised! Bed was good, everything was immaculately clean, didn't have all the fancy updated things but it has been a long time since I've seen such a cleanly place. We were on our 3rd place during our weeklong vacation and it...

Each time we have been here (3) we were impressed with how nice the staff was, how clean the rooms were, and how close we were to what we wanted to see without paying too much. It is not a luxurious hotel. We were looking for clean, comfortable and good location to beaches and town. It has all of those...
