“Wonderful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

My wife and I stayed here after friends recommended the Inn to us. I'll say up front that we are both particular about location, cleanliness and comfort. We achived all three while walking across the street to Venice Beach. I was impressed by how clean the rooms were kept, after me dragging in beach sand, the staff worked hard to be sure all comforts were taken care of. We were provided beach towels, chairs, plenty of bottled water and even a sand sifter to look for sharks teeth on the beach (I found many). Our room was located on a common balcony with about four other rooms, mostly that was OK. The only reason this property scored a very good, is they allow smoking in the common balcony area outside of the rooms, they also allowed smoking at the pool....a real negative for my wife and myself. I don't think non smokers should be subjected to smoking in common areas, especially around the pools where families and kids congregate. I hope they consider a non smoking policy for the common areas soon, I did mention this to the management.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper level with the private balcony that faces the beach, there are only two.

We stayed for six nights in January. The room was beautifully decorated, well stocked with dishes and other items, and very clean. Loved the private patio. Beds and pillows are incredibly comfortable. The muffins and scones from a local bakery added to the nice selection at breakfast. Internet in the room worked great, the channel selection on the tv was very good. Venice Beach is only steps away, and beach chairs, towels and chilled water bottles are all available at the desk. Downtown Venice, with its shops and restaurants, is only about a 10 minute walk away. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely plan to return!

The Inn at the Beach is a super clean, cute & cozy resort. The staff made our stay spledid! They were very friendly & knowledgable about the area. My friends, 1st time Florida visitors from Alaska loved the place as I also did. You are a stones throw from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The beach was gorgeous and the sunsets breath taking! We hung out at the relaxing pool & hot tub & made some lifelong friends. I spent an extra day & my Alaskan friends were allowed a very late check out for they had to fly out of Miami very early the next morning........Thanks Kindly, we will not forget you!!!

we arrived late in the afternoon in Venice, after a long drive from Key West, looking for a room accomodating 4 persons. We got a nice room with a king bed and a queen sofa bed for our two kids (17 and 13 years old). The price was rather expenisve compared to other hotels and resorts of similar quality in Florida and, even if the hotel was almost empty we were not offered any discount (differently from most other places).
The room with Kitchinette was very nice, clean and confortable; the inn is just few steps from the beach.
The breakfast was rather poor for the price we paid: motel standard....
In conclusion, the place is OK, but not worth the price you pay. Shouldn't arrived late and tired we would have looked for a different place.

Very nice place to stay. we were in a room with a kitchenette, frig, microwave, 2 stove tops, no oven, dishwasher, Nice atmosphere.

Space for kitchen and table a bit tight but it all worked. Any problems we initially had with the frig were immediately taken care of. So the maintenance service is good. Chairs for the table are all too low. need a pillow to be high enough - unless you are very tall.

Close to beach- really just across the street.. also were concerts in the early evening near the beach. Nice view from window to park across the street.

Continental breakfast available.

biggest problem was the internet. at times it worked, other times it didn't especially the last day or so. didn't matter on the time of day either.
