We stayed here one night and appreciated the clean room, parking lot, and pool area. Staff were very nice at check-in and it's clear that everything is well taken care of. It's not fancy but clean, safe and friendly. Room was quiet, too. Wifi could be improved but otherwise a fine choice for a very reasonable price.

The pool was very nice and the managers friendly. I will come back to the sunshine motel in the future. Nice outdoor seating, rooms cosy and parking perfect. We stayed. 3 days while visiting family in the area.

Clean as can be. Owner/Manager pays attention to all detail. Comfy beds. As a very experienced traveler, I can say this small motel more than met my expectations. Lot of painting, upgrades going on to prepare for "season". Just a nice place; don't be concerned about the low room prices :-).

Rooms were cleaned, and stocked nicely with kitchen utensils. Floor was clean, never went in the pool but it looked nice. Employees were friendly. Work was being done on the exterior and they were very good about not being in the way

We had a standard 2-queen bedded room. The room was absolutely spotless and had all the expected amenities: mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker & kettle, and very comfortable beds. The staff were very pleasant, helpful and accommodating. The motel is a 60s style place, with a very nice pool. Excellent value.

Old style motel, inexpensive, in a great location, within biking distance of historic old downtown Venice. Regular room had a little kitchenette with microwave, refrigerator, table for two, some plates and cutlery. Ice machine and laundry available. Also had a pool. Super nice staff and spotlessly clean! Building is older concrete block, well maintained, but sheets and towels were new....

I was surprised when I got here for the price the rooms are very clean, a little small, and the furniture is nice. The ambience seems pretty nice, as well. I like it. Wasn't even aware that this little hotel was even in Venice so you might have to use your GPS or look a little bit out of your...

Neat, clean and organized! Very pleased! We paid $69 per night for a room that had a queen size bed, a mini kitchen, two TVs, a table and four chairs, two air conditioners, two ceiling fans PLUS a sofa bed plus convenient parking. Great value!
