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...

The room could have been cleaner. The fan blades were dirty and the bathroom light fixture and bathroom floor corners were dirty. Windows on the french door were dirty and the 2" blinds were missing the wand to open/close them. Pool area was clean and courtyard was nice. Felt that maintenance could have been better as the lights in the...

We booked this place sight unseen online for an overnight stay and were pleasantly surprised. Admittedly we weren't expecting much but we got a lot for our money. The Inn is a square building with rooms around the outside. You enter your room from either the parking lot or by going through the lobby. There's a huge central courtyard, half...

The road behind is residential. Unclear if you are parking and RV or commercial vehicle. Across the street there is a good size strip mall. I would call local police ask if you can park across the street for a night (or however long you are staying) without being towed or ticket.

The area seems to be very safe and laid back; it's not Miami, or anything like that. This area is a cozy little secret because it's close enough to Sarasota without being a tourist area filled with jerks. It's just a quieter and nice little town. Feel free to enjoy the holidays here!! Swim at the hotel at night too, just be quiet about it!! Merry Christmas and happy New Year!! ENJOY!!!

I don't think pets are permitted. Best to call and check.
