Our inn is located on the island of Venice. We are within a short drive of both the beach and the downtown area. Guests can easily walk to several restaurants as well as the Chamber of Commerce and the always popular Sharkys on the Pier is just two miles away. For travelers looking to see more of what Florida has to offer Sarasota is just a 20-30 minute drive away while the St. Petersburg/Tampa area can be reached in about an hour. Whatever your interests our helpful staff is always ready to show you all the fun things our area has to offer.

Third year staying at this hotel. New management has zero personality and hospitality. First room ac didn't work had to buy a fan just to be able to stand it. When explained to the mgr, just got a sorry. Ice machine didn't work and the mgr just
said the people in the morning took all the ice. This was at 4:30 in the afternoon, maybe somebody should check on these things. Pool didn't appear to be cleaned. If you like t o have a smoke outside, you will be told to step off the property to have a puff. This use to be our go to place. Not anymore....
The only thing this place has going for it is location. Of course, sleeping in your car in the lot across the street would provide a similar location and save you a stiff rate for a ratty old motel.
This place is beat. The paint is peeling. The
windows, once operated by crank, are rusted and no longer work. They swapped out lamp bulbs with CFL's but kept the original shades that used to clip on a traditional bulb. The plastic blinds don't open/close correctly. The grounds keepers left a mess and cut branches that interfered with the walkways causing my wife to get stabbed by one.
There are many other choices in the area. Select one of them and give this disaster a pass.
Office is only open from 9-9 so almost missed getting my room. Other than that it was an ordinary room. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was small but it served its purpose. Close to lots of restaurants and the beautiful beaches.
