I booked this place as an overnight stop from new orleans to miami. I was really skeptical to begin with but i needed something so went ahead and booked. When i first arrived i was quite surprised at how clean it was. Towels, linens, floors and kitchenette was all clean. Kitchenette had paper towels too which was a nice bonus....

Owners/staff are amazing, place is very clean and all rooms face the pool and courtyard. The beds are new and fantastic! Yes, there is some wear on some of the kitchen cabinets, etc. but if you want fancy, you can pay 5 times or more as much a night. We loved this place and will be back!!!

Looks deceiving from the outside. Very nice place to stay, friendly staff and inviting pool and court yard. Room was clean and nice , but could of used a good floor cleaning. But over all would stay here again and bring my own pillows due to the one's here are hard.

Stayed Sunday through this morning, Wednesday. Room was clean. Fridge and microwave worked well. Comfortable bed and pillows. Others commented on soap being too small, not enough towels and things like that. I asked for more coffee, shampoo and soap and extra towels and was always accommodated with​ a smile and asked if I needed anything else. Very friendly owners...

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 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...
