Inn At The Beach
Travel Blogs from Venice
It's been a very long time since I spent an entire 2 weeks in any single place besides home. My travel over the last 2 ½ years has been on the more adventurous, trekking edge – hardly more than a weekend in any city, in the course of two weeks I could hit 5 or so cities, maybe 2 countries. Landing in quaint Venice, Florida – a place I …
... anyway he finished 2nd for his age group, so had good reason to be proud. Todd finished 2nd in the under 40s (turns 40 next week) , and Sophia won her age group- very competitive lot, these Carpenters.
We have had some lovely days out with friends . Last Sunday toured an Arthur Ruttenberg showhome with Jan and Chuck. We actually met C & J last year at another showhome by the same builder. Then enjoyed a very late lunch at "The Icehouse". A very large ...
Left The Keys, warm, around 80, got to Miami and it started to rain, geared up, heading north, went through about 4 different storms, we got soaked, stopped and decided to head to Tampa. Got down the road about 30 mins and it started to monsoon, could hardly see the road. Stopped at the first motel, and had to dry everything.... Went through ...

Both D & G were straight into helping Todd put together a 10 x 5 foot outdoor dog kennel (6 foot high). Their dogs (old Bailey, a red golden retriever) , has taken on a new lease of life with the arrival of “Rugby” , an American Bulldog (not pitbull)…Rugby was the largest of the litter and continues to amaze Todd & Talley with his growth rate. Now 5 months old and weighing over 50 LBS….feet ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn At The Beach Venice
This great 2 story hotel had everything going for it.Its right across the street from Venice Beach and only a 10 minute sidewalked stroll to the quaint shops and restaurants of downtown Venice.The fine restaurant,the Crow's Nest which sits on an intracoastal inlet , is also only a 10 minute walk in the other direction.The room itself was spotless and included every imaginable amenity-- ceiling fan,ac,refrigerator,microwave, ironing board,in room safe(free),fax connection,bathrom exhaust fan and even a ground effects type nightlight in the bathroom.There were also 2 complimentary bottles of spring water,popcorn,coffee and a decent continental breakfast the following morning.The bed was unbelievably comfortable and the quality and cleanliness of the linens was topnotch.The big chain hotels would be well served if they made all their management/marketing people spend at least 1 night here in order to learn what customers really want.
My husband and I stayed here one night after being in Miami Beach for a couple days staying at the Sheraton Bal Harbour, which is supposedly a five star resort (although that's doubtful). We would take the Inn at the Beach in Venice over the Sheraton and Miami Beach any day!
A memorable place
It's a little bit too good to be true. Venice is a small underdeveloped town with great unspoilt beaches and very few tourists. The Inn really is across the road from the beach in a lovely location. While the layout is like a motel, don't let that put you off. The rooms are big, clean and come with free wireless internet access (how much longer are the big hotels going to charge for that?). The staff were all very friendly and we'll always remember our stay - because our little boy finally learned to swim in their pool!
Surprised so few reviews.
Stay here you won't be dissappointed. If you can swing it get a suite with a balcony facing the ocean. Remember the ocean is across the street. Housekeeping does an excellent job and pool and grounds are well maintained. A continental breakfast is included in rate which was good. Places we ate which are casual and decent. Luna's for italian and TJ Carney's for pub,irish/american fare. We will stay here again when we come back to Venice.
Stayed one night at Inn at The Beach on our way from Tampa to Naples. I am what my husband calls a pain when it comes to hotels. If it isnt really clean and nice I can't stay. No big five star hotels in Venice so I trusted Tripadvisor reviews, booked a room and hoped for the best. You cant tell from the outside but as soon as you step inside your room you know its a jem. Seperate bedroom. Lovely bathroom. Nice family room and kitchen area. Most important was how clean and updated it was. Beautiful beach across the street with little snack shop. Lovely shops and restaurants just down the street from the hotel. Housekeepers were so friendly and happy. Clearly took pride in a job well done. Comfortable,clean,cute place to spend a night or more. And the price was very low, around 150 per night.
Arrived here escaping from Hurricane Wilma. First impression: the place was spotlessly clean. Did I say spotless!!! Great staff, great location. 100feet from the beach. Try the Crows Nest a mile away for a great meal. We'll be back.

This was the best place!!! My family just loved it! The staff was SUPER friendly! They put out a lovely (small, but plenty!) continental breakfast in the lobby every morning. It was such a nice way to start the day.
The hotel was spotless and the pool was so much fun! It was a nice size with plenty of chairs (I hate when you can't get a chair).
Location was excellent (couldnt ask for better...right accross from the beautiful beach, we walked there several times a day).
One of the nicest hotels I've every stayed in! The room was spotless and appeared to have been recently renovated. The staff is very friendly and accomodating.
I highly recommend this inn which is directly across the street from the beach.
Great, Small Hotel
Spent 7 nights in Feb/Mar 2005. Quaint, Low Key Hotel, Great location across a quiet street from the beach, and walking distance to Downtown Venice. Staff was very pleasant and there when you need them. Rooms were very clean. Would definitely go back.
Would not waste your time
We have called to try to stay here twice and the owner acts as if she could care less. We visit Venice often as we have relatives there. When we need extra space we like to rent a hotel room. The second time we called we wanted several hotel rooms for a special family reunion type visit. Owner said she does not want to rent to groups. Little does she know this was her loss. We'll go elsewhere.
