    « Great base for the local beaches »

    We stayed here for a few nights in May 2016 as we wanted to spend some time around Venice Beach/Siesta Key. The hotel is conveniently located - just off a main road and there is a gas station, McDonalds and a couple of other food places just outside. There is also a Publix a few minutes drive up the road. It's about a 10 minute drive to Venice Beach and about 25 minutes to Siesta Key. The room was massive and clean, and there was a fridge and microwave which was useful. The bed was also really comfortable. We had breakfast at the hotel each morning and there was a great selection of different options. They also have fresh cookies at reception around 6pm each night. Most people tend to stay at this hotel and head to the beach. We opted to stay by the pool for quite a few mornings and we had practically had it to ourselves until later on in the afternoon. The pool area is small and backs onto the car park area but was fine for the purposes of our stay. We used the fitness room during the stay which was decent - there are a couple of treadmills, a bike and cross trainer. There is also a laundry room which we used. Overall this hotel was a great base for visiting the local beaches and we would definitely stay again if we are to return to the area!

    « Great decorating »

    I love this hotel. The decorations are great and the staff is even better! Rick at the front desk is absolutely wonderful. Breakfast was good and the lady is delightful and keeps everything well stocked.

    « Good choice hotel »

    We had a good stay at this hotel. The room was clean, the breakfast was good, the front desk was very friendly. This place is located very close to the interstate and restaurants. They even have cookies.

    « Clean, kind »

    First, I traveled a lot in Florida for 5+ years and never stayed in the hotel which has lower than 90% rating. Staff was very kind. Room was spacious, clean and had lots of outlet. I had 2 camera, 2 phones and 1 laptop. Toilet was clean and not clogged(very unique). Hotel is not luxurious but room looks like remodeled. Do not need to be disappointed by not-fancy elevator. Breakfast was fine. Cannot be top notch but good enough. Not far from Siesta key. Room has door inside of the building so this is more secured than other hotels in Sarasota (usually has doors to outside). I will stay again if I go Siesta key again.

    « Ashley at the front desk was wonderful »

    Great hotel with friendly staff. When we checked-in, Ashley from the front desk went above and beyond and was very pleasant and helpful. If we come back we will definitely stay here. Rooms were nice, clean, and comfortable and the location was convenient.

    « Small tv in room »

    Room was ok. Tv was small. Not a fancy place just ok. Pool was average. Great breakfast and breakfast crew. Very accommodating ! With today's technology, ice buckets should keep is for more than a couple hours.

    « Best in the area !!! »

    We've stayed at the other "name" hotels in the area -- and this is , by far, the BEST !! Clean, well appointed and comfortable -- friendly, helpful staff...all at the same price as the others... we'll stay here again soon !!!!

    « Great Place to Stay »

    What a great property! One of the Best we have stayed in! Room and service were over the top. Could not ask for anything better!! We have stayed at others on our trip that were not very good so when we stayed here it was Amazing!!

    « Quick trip »

    Great location right off of the highway. Upon Checking in I found the hotel to be very clean and the staff was very polite and informative. I wish I could have stayed longer to take advantage of the pool which looked very inviting. I would stay again if the situation called for it.

    « A HAVEN FROM HURRICANE MATTHEW »

    We were on the East Coast of Florida when the governor announced this storm will kill you. We made reservations at the Ambassador Suites having no prior knowledge of the area and lucked out. The hotel is located just off I-75 and only a few miles from downtown Venice and the Gulf of Mexico beaches. Parking is free and the building in appearance and cleanliness was great. The pool in front of the hotel is small but clean and refreshing. Janet at the front desk and staff were friendly, professional and helpful. It was suggested that we stay on the third floor since no one would be on top of us and we got room #314. The room was spacious with a love seat, two queen beds easy chair and table with chair. There were a microwave, refrigerator and small sink. The shower had good temperature with adequate pressure. The queen bed close to the window is close to the HVAC unit and makes it hard to get into the bed by the wall. I found the beds hard but the room was very quiet even in a sold-out market. The breakfast bar is a step above with cinnamon bites, scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, cereal, fruit cups, waffles, and pancakes. Selection of juice or soda's. We would stay there again if in the area.

    « Loved it! »

    Excellent Hotel! our room had been changed from carpets to wood flooring and loved it! so much cleaner! The staff was very professional, and helpful. Right next to the freeway so traveling was made easier. The Cracker Barrel Restaurant was in walking distance. The food excellent! There were other types of eateries but we liked The CB.

    Very comfortable hotel with some newly renovated rooms. Our team had to leave the hotel early, before breakfast normally is served, but they had everything available to us. Great service and a good nights sleep.

    « excellent value for money »

    This motel has en excellent location being just of the I 75 and within 3 miles of the gulf beaches. There are plenty of good restaurants close by and and other interesting areas up and down the west coast can be reached in an hour. The rooms are well decorated and the overall condition of the motel facilities are excellent

    « Excelent stay »

    This is one of the best Best Westerns we have stayed at and we have stayed at many across this country. Hotel staff were great, the cleanliness and appearance of the building was top notch. The room was spacious, clean, bed was comfortable and I loved the fact it had laminate floors (no rugs!!). The location was great for what we wanted, just a short ride to the beach. We would definetely recommend this hotel!

    « nice »

    was nice. Breakfast was good. Rome was nice. the girl that checked us in was very helpful with information on places to go to eat and everything else. we did not get to use any of the things in hotel, for we there mainly to sleep.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    Hotel was clean and updated. Our room was spacious with a sofa, easy chair and small table with two chairs in an area apart from the sleeping area. Also had a microwave, refrigerator and small sink. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel was about a fifteen minute drive from downtown Venice. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Labor Day Memorial »

    We typically pass over the Best Western Hotels due to their age and lack of 2 queen beds in a room. This hotel, two queen bed suite was EXCELLENT. It really did compare to the other hotels we would have selected. Because we lost our Mother during the Labor Day weekend, we had slim pickings, but BEST WESTERN PREMIUM SUITES really did suprise. We are so THANKFUL and ready to change our future choice to the BEST WESTERN Ambassador Suites.

    « Nice, but »

    The rooms were nice and comfy. Our only problems concerned the shower curtain (it wouldn't stay closed-- the rod was bent and I couldn't shower and hold the curtain closed the entire time I was trying to lather up). Secondly, the dispensers for shower gel and the soap was empty or too low to dispense. Other than that, it was a nice facility. Breakfast was hot and good.

    2
    « Less than satisfactory »

    TV remote in room lacked battery. Phone set in room did not work. Jack-hammering in the lobby in the morning, without prior notice from hotel that it would be occurring, notice that would have given the consumer the opportunity to change the reservation.

    « The BEST Western »

    We found this hotel to be a great value. Convenient , Modern, with a friendly staff. Ingredients for a very nice stay. It is a short trip to many good places to eat, and it is an easy place to get around the area

    « Great Hotel and amazing staff! »

    I have stayed at this hotel on our vacations yearly for the last 7 years. It has NEVER been a disappointment. The hotel has been renovated in the last year and looks nice. The rooms are clean, the lobby is updated, the pool is always welcoming, the breakfast they offer is very generous, no problems with the internet and the staff is amazing! When I walk through the Best Western/Venice doors, there is always a pleasant person there to greet me. Because I have stayed at this location numerous times, the staff has gotten to know me and my family and make us feel like a part of the BW/Venice family. Feels like a 2nd home. I highly recommend this location!!

    « Best one yet »

    I was very happy with both the hotel and the staff. I traveled the entire state and had a lot of windshield time. Upon my arrival they gave me a room I was comfortable in. Check in was easy as well as the check out process.

    « Good Choice »

    I got last minute reservations for two nights after first stopping at another nearby hotel where I had reservations and deciding not to stay there. The rate was much less than the hotel that I had reserved. The room was a suite with a microwave, refrigerator and small coffee maker. It also included a buffet breakfast. Everything was very clean and updated. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and even recommended a great burger place nearby. Our room was comfortable and quiet. It had a large flat screen TV and a nice sitting area separate from the beds. All this for under $100 ! Thank you to all the staff who were so kind and helpful.

    « luxury for less »

    I thought I was at the wrong hotel! The service was above and beyond..the amenities...perfect. Location to Venice...close. The bed? The best!!! I love the variety of pillow types. Super clean. Will definitely stay again.

    « Great Stay »

    We were very satisfied with our stay, and will definitely coming back. Great hotel, with excellent customer service! Great location for downtown shopping, great restaurants, and all of the beaches! We will definitely be coming back to stay at this hotel!

    « This feels like home »

    Hands down, I always choose this hotel to stay when I come to Venice. At the end of a long day, I feel like I am walking in to my home when I come here. The place is always clean, from the outside, lobby, hallways, rooms. The front desk staff is friendly and approachable. The breakfast in the morning is quite a spread and plenty of seating area. We had a suite with a King bed and 2 sofa sleepers. I would highly recommend paying a little more for this suite as the bed is in a separate room. The bathroom is VERY large and nice fridge and sink and a table to sit and eat. The water pressure is great. The pool is a bit on the small side, so if that's your main source of entertainment for your kids, you might be disappointed. There's also some restaurants within walking distance and the location is GREAT! I highly recommend staying at this hotel.

    « Overnight stay »

    It was a last minute decision to stay in Venice on a Saturday night the price was good the room was very large had 2 double beds and a small couch. The bathroom was very roomy and the shower was great. The front desk was very helpful suggesting restaurants in the area that specialized in seafood. The breakfast that the hotel provided the next morning at no additional charge was good. If I am ever in Venice again this is the hotel I will stay at.

    « great hotel for price you pay »

    clean, comfortable hotel, great price and breakfast included. Rooms are large, bed and pillows were very comfy. Décor is decent. Bathrooms were great, good water pressure. easy check-in check-out. nice, safe location. Would definitely go back and would definitely recommend

    « Best Hotel »

    Excellent place. Near the highway, but very quiet. I'd stay there again. This was probably the best hotel I've stayed in for years. It was a short drive to many local beaches. I wish all hotels were this friendly, clean and had such large rooms.

    « Nice hotel »

    I rented the suite w/King bed and 2 sleeper sofas. It was a very nice room. Hotel very clean, great staff. Nice breakfast. Issue with water pressure and water temperature. Dispensers for body gel were not filled. Which is not a problem if you realize before you start showering.

    « Outstanding staff! »

    The staff, and hotel exceeded my family's expectations. The hotel was clean, and staff was friendly and helpful. The beach with "the whitest sand in the world" amazed us, especially we come from an area with only swamps and lakes. The staff was helpful, and even allowed our whole family to eat our dinner in the lobby area. Everything was clean, and sanitary. It makes you feel right at home. We will return!

    « Very Nice Hotel »

    Beautiful hotel right off of I-75 just outside all of the hustle and bustle of the Venice Beach area. The beach is a short 10 min drive away or you can get to Manasota Key or Siesta Key in about 25 min. The hotel staff is very friendly and the complementary breakfast is great. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Rest assured you will not be disappointed!

    « One night get away »

    Clean comfortable stay! Stayed here with two teenage boys for an evening before shark tooth hunting at the beach. Room had a sitting area/kitchenette separated by a short half wall with two queen beds...very nice and spacious. Breakfast was good and staff friendly. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

    « Beautiful accommodations! »

    Clean and spacious. Wooden floors were a definite plus. Got a great nights sleep. Beds a bit firm but that is my preference. Ten minute drive to beach and shopping. Walked to burger joint next door which was very convenient. Complimentary breakfast was good.

    « Venice Beach Fl. Getaway. »

    Let me count the ways. Complimentary hot breakfast, eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, potatoes, pancakes, waffles and bagels plus. Love the coffee machine. One unit six different choices of coffee 24 hrs, WiFi, Large, clean comfortable rooms. We had 2 queen beds for 2 adults and 2 children(13yrs). Easy access off highway 75 and 15 minutes to the beach. The hotel has one elevator but with only three floors had not problems with wait time. Staff very friendly and up to date on questions about Venice. It was nice to see that the that those using the complimentary brkfst showed their appreciation for the hard work preparing it by leaving tips. We vacation in Venice every year and stay here and it seems that each year they outdo the previous years service. Tks for helping us for making our vacation complete. liz

    « Poor customer service and management oversight »

    I have tried to contact the General Manager of this hotel via phone, email and facebook prior to writing this review and received no reply. My brother stayed at this hotel in June and I purchased gifts to put in my his room for him and his family to welcome them to Florida and to really make their trip special. I arrived at the hotel in the late afternoon and asked the front desk if I could put the gifts in his room. After giving them all of my information as well as his reservation information, the gave me the key to his room. I put the champagne on ice so it would be chilled upon their arrival after a long travel day. I also left them two engraved wine glasses, a bottle of wine, shirts, hats, bottled water and Perrier. After I picked them up from the airport, we checked into the hotel and I walked them to their room. The gift display was not there! I was so disappointed. I spent a week buying their favorite items and Venice-specific clothes and was so excited to see their reaction. Instead of enjoying a glass of champagne with them, my brother and I had to go back to the front desk to find out what happened. When I told the woman at the front desk that they had given me a key earlier in the day to place the gifts in -- she simply said it looks like someone else had checked into that room--sorry, there is nothing I can do about it now. After some back and forth, I could see she was not going to budge so I left very disappointed -- especially knowing that the expensive bottle of champagne I had purchased and chilled would be warm by the morning. I returned the next day (another 25 minute drive) to straighten the situation out. It was now 9am and the new front desk person said there was nothing she could do until the people checked out! I do not understand when she could not just call the room and ask for the gifts. She refused and said to come back again later! I returned a third time late Saturday afternoon and was told my gifts have been located and placed in the right room. We went up to the room and the items were there. The surprise was over -- my brother had now witnessed the three discussions with the front desk. The gifts were not displayed as I had arrange them. The champagne was warm was undrinkable. We had plans for the remainder of the visit so they didn't have time to drink the wine and since our beach day was over they didn't get to wear the shirts and hats. I am very disappointed in the customer service and feel that my gifts were wasted.

    « Another Great Stay! »

    Whenever we are in the Venice, Florida area, we always stay at this hotel. It's conveniently located and a nice quiet place to stay. Staff is great! The hotel is clean and price is reasonable. Our last stay was at Christmas time in 2015. The hotel decorations were fabulous! It put us in a cheerful holiday mood! We like their little library. It's nice to be able to choose a book to read. In fact, we brought a box of books to share on this trip.

    « Outstanding In Every Way »

    My wife and I, both Best Western Employees, arranged a trip for our extended family from PA to visit Florida. While not every Best Western Hotel met our expectations during our trip, this one far exceeded them. From a clean room, to outstanding staff and service, to a wonderful hot breakfast each morning, and a great pool for our family to enjoy, this hotel had everything that we were looking for. We used the hotel as a base to explore the beautiful beaches and attractions that the Gulf Coast has to offer. During our stay, I had an emergency that required my attention at the hotel that I manage in PA. Their staff was kind enough to accommodate my needs, help me to connect and enabled me to solve my issues. It was way above and beyond any service that I would expect. We are picky about where we stay, and we do not offer false praise. This hotel was outstanding in every way, and extremely well run. When we return to the area in a few years we will make it a priority to return to this hotel!

    « Clean, Convenient, and Fun! »

    We traveled as a family of 10 last week to this hotel. Our 3 rooms were located nearby each other, and were clean and quiet! Ashley at the front desk was a pleasure! She checked us in, and went out of her way to see how our stay was going during our trip. Manager Rich was kind enough to let my husband use his office to take care of a work emergency, and everyone was more than accommodating and welcoming! I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the Siesta Key area! It was the perfect spot for our family to spend some time at the beach! Also- be sure to try BrewBurgers located right next door- their food was AMAZING! (Great front desk recommendation!)

    « Other hotels take note! »

    This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel (we stayed 3 nights). It is well maintained and there is obliviously good management. The front desk was very friendly. The housekeeping did an excellent job even taking time to perch my daughter's stuffed animals on top the pillows. The breakfast attendants were constantly making sure the food was hot and well stocked. The breakfast bar had plenty to choose from, including pancakes, waffles, eggs,bacon, bagels, yogurt, cereal and more. This is a great hotel!

    « Great hotel near I 75 and beaches »

    « Breakfast Was Poor! »

    The house keeping was great. The location was fine. The complimentary breakfast was inedible! The eggs were watery and uninteresting. The juices were not fresh. The bacon was limp, not crispy. The sausage was not browned. All of the food was of poor quality.

    « so glad I came »

    Considering I made the mistake of booking my stay for the wrong date I was easily accomodated. very staff member I encountered was polite, professional and friendly. The hotel itself was impeccable both inside the very spacious rooms and the grounds & parking lot were clean and well lit.

    « A better choice! »

    Such a better choice than the Hol Inn Express which is so damp and run down. Best Western is roomier and cleaner by far and convenient location too. I will stay here again and I will recommend this hotel to others! Keep up the quality for repeat visitors. thank you

    « This Best Western Plus is really a PLUS! »

    This was our third time at the Ambassador Suites property and we will be back. The thing is, it's not close to the beach, but we're not beach people. When we stay here, we go to Casey Key for the beach scene, which is a bit of a drive from Venice anyway. The rooms are very large, everything works well. The breakfast looked good, although we didn't partake. But the coffee (a requirement for us) was excellent. Staff is very helpful and efficient. It is obvious that this property is managed by people who really care about excellence and service. We are also participants in BW's rewards program. In addition, this property gives a 20% discount for returning guests: that's a big help on the rate.

    « Beautiful and comfortable »

    I have stayed here a number of times and go back when I go to Venice to search for sharks teeth. The room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast options were good. I will look forward to coming back, again.

    Stayed at the Venice BW in both 2015 and 2016 for the beach. Accommodations are very good and location is convenient to the beach and restaurants. Staff at the Venice BW are always friendly, courteous and professional. The staff is very responsive to questions or issues. I definitely recommend this BW for stay in the Venice area. Hotel is near I75 but rooms are very quiet with NO road noise.

    « In between stay for dive trips »

    nice and clean, the rooms are very spacious and clean. excellent location to stay at , off the interstate and only 5 minutes from my dive charter location. breakfast looked good, but they started service too late 630 in the am , but they did let me get some things before they opened. The only things i didn't like, pillows, were really really small and very hard to sleep on. no room safe and they had cheap soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers instead of actual bars and bottles of soap, and bar is i like better then the liquid. friendliness of the staff was great.

    « Excellent hotel in good location »

    This hotel is perfect for a stay on the Gulf Coast. Just off the highway and only about 3 miles from the centre of Venice, and good choice of restaurants in the town. After spending almost 2 weeks in Orlando this is an area I would recommend for a few days as a wind down.

    « Nice large rooms but... »

    We stayed here because it was near our relatives we wanted to visit. The TA reviews were positive and we were pleased with our stay overall. Check in was a little formal, most place the front desk is very friendly, I found this one to be pretty formal not much Southern hospitality. The room was nice and clean and more than large enough. Plenty of hot water for the shower, housekeeping people were quick with a hello and a smile. Breakfast was adequate but compared to most free breakfasts offered by the other chains this one fell short of equaling them. My biggest complaint was the TV, I know I am on vacation so it shouldn't be a concern but I was disappointed that the TV only had analog TV channels, I thought everyone had digital channels now, TV picture was not as sharp, a minor problem, but I do like my TV reception to be clearer.

    « Loved our stay here! »

    Hotel lobby and common areas are just beautiful. Rooms are very spacious and include a mini-fridge and a microwave. Rooms are very clean and bedding and pillows are heavenly! Breakfast is included and it's not just a continental breakfast. We had eggs, sausage, biscuits, waffles, cereals, yogurt, oatmeal, etc. Staff is constantly replenishing food & supplies. Coffee & tea 24/7 plus snacks and drinks for sale al day/night. We did not have time to check out the pool or fitness areas. Close to I-75.

    We chose to stay here on our yearly visit to Florida. It's a very nice property, well maintained. The rooms are spacious and include a couch. The breakfast bar is good although it gets very crowded some mornings. (we had to eat in our room one day) The beach is a mere 10-15 minute drive depending on traffic, and the hotel will loan you almost anything you would need for the beach(chairs, beach towels, shovels, scoopers). We hope to visit again!

    « Last Minute Stay »

    We were traveling and decided to stay here over nigh at the last minute - in the evening. The motel was a nice surprise. When calling to book, I always ask how long it has been since the motel has been renovated - how fresh does it look. The lady at the front desk said that it was fairly old but that most guests thought it was new. They constantly keep it fresh. I was a little suspect. But she was so right. It is fresh, clean and modern looking. It is a notch above many. The little contact I had with staff - they were all friendly, professional and helpful It's a nice place. You'll like it.

    We were very happy with the accommodations. I would recommend Best Western any time. We booked this not knowing how far we were from Sarasota where we met up with the Softball Tournament held this weekend. The location right off the highway was perfect. The Staff gave us a great place to walk around and have a bite to eat and a little bit of shopping. (Venice Downtown District)

    « Very pricey for what we got »

    We had to make a quick trip for house hunting to the area and coming to Venice during the season is asking for price gouging. That's what we had to contend with. We used points for one night and paid through the nose for the other. Our room was spacious and clean. However, the desk chair, opposite the bed, took up so much space that it was almost impossible to get around it in the middle of the night. I crashed into it the first night. There was a couch and a small table and chairs in the room which was nice. Breakfast wasn't anything outstanding--the eggs were preformed and pretty tasteless, sausage was good. Not much in the sweet roll department. If you are looking to go to the beach, this is quite far from Venice Beach--probably at least a 15 minute drive. There was a brewpub near by but we didn't try that. The large majority of Venice restaurants are at least 10 minutes away.

    I stayed here for a whole week, and had a very good experience. The hotel staff were fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful. The room was large, clean and had a very comfortable bed. The coffee making facilities were fine. The room also had a microwave and refrigerator, convenient for a longer-than-normal stay. The free wifi was reliable and fast. The included breakfast was much better than average for this type of hotel and included fresh fruit and yogurt as well as some hot food. If you visit here and enjoy beer you may want to know that about 20 minutes walk away there is a bar called the "British Open Pub" which has a remarkably good selection of draught and bottled beers. Some are quite strong so walking there is definitely a good idea. There is a good off-road footpath going most of the way there. Take care crossing the road near the roundabout (aka traffic circle) though as many local drivers get confused with this traffic layout. It is fun to watch for a while but leave plenty of room when crossing the road, especially on your way back :)

I wish hotels that provide this perk wouldn't serve bacon. It never taste good. You can tell by just looking at it that it is the cheap stuff which is typical. Here was no different.

    We arrived @ 1 am after traveling all day. We had no idea where to stay but pulled off I-75 at exit 193 that indicated there was a Cracker Barrel. We knew there would be hotels near any Cracker Barrel so we exited. There were a number of hotels at this exit but the Best Western seemed inviting and was well lit from the street. When I called Ginny answered the phone and was very inviting on the telephone. She quoted us an excellent price and we thought surely it would be okay for the price. Needless to say, upon entering the doors of the lobby, our thoughts changed a little with the decor of the lobby area. Ginny was very helpful and checked us in quickly. As we went to the elevator to go to our rooms, the carpet in the hallways seemed brand new, the walls were clean and not a mark on the baseboards. I thought if the rooms are anything like the exterior hallways, we hit the jack pot! As we entered the room, we were ecstatic to see the size of the room. It was the size of a suite in most hotels. The decor of the room was earth tones with various materials that complemented each piece of furniture. The bathroom was very clean and had ample towels of all sizes. We were very happy and slept on very comfortable beds. Needless to say, we had a terrific stay!

    We were staying at the BW+ while house hunting in the Venice area. The location is a couple of miles from the old town center area but has easy access to I-75 and is on Jacaronda, which is a major though way. We were greeted very warmly by Lauren when we walked in looking for a room. She was very helpful and friendly. The lobby is nicely set with a breakfast eating area opposite the desk. The public areas were very clean and in excellent condition. There are computers and printers on the second floor balcony if needed. The hallways were wide, clean and well lighted and maintained. Our room was spacious, clean, quiet, well maintained and comfortable. We really liked the mini kitchen area and the fact that there plenty of outlets to charge our devices. All of the table lamps have an outlet built in. The bed was clean and comfortable. The closet could have used a couple more hangers but then we were staying for a week so we had more to hang than usual. There are picnic tables and BBQ's on the north end of the hotel and plenty of parking. The outdoor pool is medium sized and was warm with a nice set up for towels and access. There are beach towels available at the front desk if you wish to go to one of the many Venice beautiful beaches. There is a Chinese, Mexican and burger restaurant very close by. We tried the Mexican restaurant and it was very, very good. We also tried the BrewBurger and that was great but it does get crowded. We didn't try the Chinese but it had good reviews online. We would definitely stay here again. Hats off to Lauren as she was great in answering any questions we had and also Rich, as he was very helpful too. All the people at the hotel were very friendly.

    Easily the best hotel we stayed in on our trip south on a Venice stay over. The hotel is super clean and our room was very spacious. I especially enjoyed the thick, luxurious towels in the bathroom. A very nice touch. My wife enjoys having a separate area outside the bathroom to apply make-up, etc. which makes it easier for two people to get ready in the morning. Another nice touch was the sanitized remote control for the TV. I had never considered just how many germs are probably enjoying a stay on the remote!! The breakfast was delicious and the buffet staff very friendly. Venice is a lovely place and we timed our stop to browse in a couple of shops, enjoy appetizers and a drink at an outdoor cafe, and then a hurried walk to Venice Beach for sunset. I would highly recommend both Venice and the Best Western to any traveler. I also couldn't shake a memory from my youth when a good family friend always insisted on staying at a Best Western. I now know why!!!!

    « Good choice in the area »

    The choices in Venice are really limited. Most of the options are moderate chains of this type, which are not my favorite places to stay. That said, the Best Western here is a decent option. It is an older property, and certainly my room could have used an update. But the room was spotlessly clean and the desk staff were all very friendly and helpful. Prices were reasonable. The hotel is located right by the highway, and I expected our highway-facing room to be noisy at night, but it was surprisingly quiet. We skipped the breakfast every day, opting to eat elsewhere. I did find it strange that there was no room safe. The hotel materials mentioned that safe deposit boxes are available at the desk, but with all of the electronics one carries these days, it is really inconvenient not to have a place to secure things in the room. Otherwise, our stay was just fine.

    Kyle got us checked in and was able to accommodate rooms next to each other, as my elderly mother was traveling with us. The rooms were good sized, laminate floors, very clean. The property is right off I75 with a few other hotel choices. The area seemed quiet on this Sunday night. The front desk staff assisted us with directions and maps for local dining options, I consider myself fairly picky on hotels I stay in, and I would definitely stay here again. Two things I would prefer to see are better water pressure in the shower, and the ability to inspect the mattress. Their mattresses are encased with a zip tied mattress cover. I meant to ask about this, but we had a lot going on as we were in town for a funeral.

    « Rich was extremely rude. »

    We're Venice residents and had our AC die on us this week. We stayed at Inn At The Beach which was fabulous, and I plan on reviewing that separately later. Anyway, I called and Rich answered. I was very kind and explained that our air had broken and while we'd stayed at Inn At The Beach the previous evening, they were full tonight and check-out was at 11:00. I told him that I have 3 kids and I'm also pregnant with our 4th. I said that I had seen on TripAdvisor that they had several rooms and I was planning on booking but was wondering the earliest they'd let us check-in. With no relatives here and nowhere else to go, I was assuming he would be kind to a sick, pregnant woman and let us come in earlier. First he said, "I don't even have any rooms to accommodate you." I said, "well, TripAdvisor says you have several rooms," and he cut me off rudely and said, "no, I have no 2 queens." I kindly responsed by stating that we didn't need two queens, that a 1-King would be fine because we could use the pull out couch (we cosleep anyway so our children sleep with us). Then he said, "oh, well I can't get you in until 3," which is basically check-in. He was rude and nasty and I have NEVER been spoken to so unkindly. My husband is a well-respected attorney and our families have been in Venice for 50+ years, and I have never had such nastiness spit at me, especially while pregnant and in an uncomfortable, difficult position. Someone should recommend sensitivity training for Rich, because he missed the mark big time here. I would've HAPPILY booked even if he could've gotten us in just an hour earlier, if only he would've shown some kindness and compassion.

They have a reasonable size pool, which does butt up on the parking lot. They have fairly large and well appointed rooms. Each room had a small sitting area and kitchenette, which contained a small sink, microwave and small fridge. The room was spacious, clean and reasonably well maintained. I would also add that the room was fairly quiet. Both beds were a bit on the firm side. I do also appreciate their attention to detail. With every hotel room I visit I thoroughly inspect for bedbugs and other pests and I was pleased to see that this Best Western had encapsulated their mattresses in a pest proof mattress enclosure. They do offer a continental breakfast which does have both hot and cold options and is on par with others in the industry. As a sidenote, this location does seem to attract a number of construction workers and industrial vehicles. Please be aware of this when you're parking your vehicle for the night. There are also three gas stations located very close to the hotel. Both race track and the Shell station are a bit sketchy. All in all The best Western in Venice Florida has done it right.

Very modern, with as many amenities as some of the resorts we stayed in on our week long trip in Orlando and the Keys where we stayed in 2 different resorts. This hotel was very clean and modern. Very comfortable bed. The fact that it was a suite was a plus, as well as the free breakfast for a very affordable price. Would definitely highly recommend to any travelers going through Venice.
