Just one night on a quick trip to Venice. Standard King room. A little cramped, but serviceable for one night. Nice pool with afternoon shade. Nice to have some dishes/glassware in room. Bathroom smelled a little funky, but was clean.

Venice doesn’t have many hotel options, this is the only one on the beach. Great location, needs updating. Kind of pricey. The manager, Tim Brown very nice. Decent morning breakfast. Hotel has potential to be great

It’s about 1/2 mile to restaurants - very easy walk. Shaded and pretty.

Sarasota-bradenton is the closest airport. The hotel does not provide ant transportation any where. You definitely need to rent a car. Downtown Main Street is within walking distance. Once you have done that a couple of times you will definitely want to drive to other areas.

"Hotel website has a plan of the hotel. Check it out to find rooms with private balconys. Google earth streetview helps too!"
"Upstairs rooms are quieter because of guests going by and walking overhead."
"if you need two bedrooms grab the suite it is very nice"
"Beach view with patio!"
"Beach side rooms are the choice of most"
