"Nice hotel located near Venice and North Port"

08/11/2018

The Best Western Plus Venice is a very nice property conveniently located near the interstate highway, Venice and North Port. Reception was very friendly and helpful. The room/suite was spacious, functional and clean. The bedding was several steps above basic hotel bedding. The included breakfast buffet was average, basic. We definitely plan on staying at this property in the future.

Best hotel we stayed at on our week long motorcycle trip!. We arrived early and the clerk graciously stored our bags and called us when our rooms were ready. The hotel is in an excellent location and have a wonderful staff! Highly recommend and will definitely stay there again when we are in the area!

"Vacation "

08/10/2018

My bf and I spent 1 night here on our way down to sanibel island for vacation. I got a really good rate and a rather large room. When I checked in, the front desk young lady was very helpful with dinner suggestions and also told us which beach would be the best to hunt for shark teeth. We were on the 1st floor right off the lobby which was good for us since we smoke and wish to go in and out. Jamie, that worked nightshift was very friendly. I felt safe in this hotel and in the parking lot outside at night. The breakfast was not good however. The boiled egg tasted like it had been frozen then thawed, the scrambled eggs looked very overcooked, I took 1 bite of the boiled egg and it was so bad it ruined my appetite for anything else, so I just had coffee. The hotel was very clean and beautifully decorated. Even decorated for fall/Halloween. There is coffee in the lobby 24 hrs and it is not bad. I would definitely stay here again, just skip the breakfast.

very clean room! the best breakfast you can imagine!!!!! Nice pool, but small.... DO NOT BOOK THROUGH HOTELS.COM!!!! We booked through this 3rd party and were so sorry. The price is cheaper if you go directly through the hotel!!!! yes, 81.00 at the hotel and 101.00 through the 3rd party..... I will definitely go back to this hotel in the future, but i will book directly through Best Western.

The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and it has so many extras. It's located close to beaches and some fantastic restaurants. Red Tide had hit Venice, but we drove up to St Pete and had a great time.

"Loving our base for exploring the Venice area"

28/08/2018

Located off I-75 but once you get here you forget about that - very quiet here. Plenty of parking and small pool located at the front of the hotel - good for a small dip or sitting around in the evening. The lobby area is very clean and open. We were there kinda early and the front desk was so helpful and accommodating and got us a quiet room. We brought our bags to the room, put some drink & food in the small frig and drove out to the beach. We have stayed at Best Westerns before but like another guest said this is best Best Western (and I believe it!). Has everything going for it - clean quiet hotel, good beds for sleeping, friendly staff, good price, close to beaches and town if you need anything. They have a comfortable room (you don't feel like you have to eat and run) for buffet breakfast - a few selections for vegan so that worked for us. Plenty of other selections for those non-vegans. We stayed for 4 nights and it was just perfect for everything that we wanted to do. Filled up gas on the way out and on to our next adventure. Love the Venice area and this hotel especially. Will definitely be back again - hopefully not too far in the future.

We needed to get out of our house while floors being done. Chose Best Western since we are rewards members. Wonderful place to stay. Very clean, near several restaurants, beautiful room with fridge, microwave, and mini-sink. Could see I75 and did not even hear it! So quiet. Pool gorgeous, plenty of chairs/tables/chaises/pool noodles. Great breakfast with very attentive attendant, all kinds of choices, lots of good protein and extras. Very homey feeling, even has magazines and books to read. Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

"Good quality for short stay"

07/07/2018

I would say this hotel is nice and very clean. The breakfast was good and included with our room rate. We stayed here after a show in Sarasota so it was good for what we needed it. It is close to the beach about 10 mins. They have food options within walking distance. Brew and Burger within 3 mins walking totally worth it. I was disappointed with the pool area. It is very small and nothing special so we didn't even bother to try it out we went to the beach instead.

"Excellent value for the Quality"

06/07/2018

This hotel exceeded our expectations. The room was spacious, very clean and tidy. The King bed was very comfortable. The bathroom/shower was very nice and clean. Their towels were of excellent quality - They always replenished our towels as we had a need. There was a mini kitchenette which was perfect for us because we brought a few groceries of our own (beer, water, soda, yogurt, lunchmeat). The breakfast was higher quality than most hotels and we enjoyed it each of the 4 mornings we were there. The staff and cleaning crew were friendly and most helpful. The location was perfect; just off I-75 and 6 minutes to downtown Venice's shopping and eateries. We will return to this hotel in the future!

03/07/2018

Booked a king suite with jetted tub for a very good price at the last minute. I first learned the room was right off of the lobby, which made me concerned about privacy and noise. The second I opened the door and stepped into room 118, I felt like I was in a miniature apartment. Noise was never a factor! I completely forgot I was even in a hotel! The room was VERY clean, even the tub. I could walk out of my room a few feet and purchase beer and have it added to my room tab :) The breakfast in the AM was pretty average, the omelettes were really good. Housekeeping didnt bug us by knocking on our door before checkout, which was awesome. The ONLY complaint I really have is that the curtains in the room are too short! They dont go all the way to the floor, allowing light to illuminate the room in the AM, making it difficult to sleep in! Please consider fixing this! Overall, I will definitely be back. Staff was super friendly too. Thank you guys for the awesome experience :)

Katherine W, Manager at Best Western Plus Ambassador Suites Venice, responded to this review
Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. We are delighted to learn that you enjoyed your stay in one of our Executive Suites.

Thank you again for your comments, and we look forward to your next stay with us.

We have just returned from 5 lovely days at this hotel and would definitely recommend to families and couples. The front desk staff are very friendly and informative on places to visit and local beaches. The pool is only small but great to have a cool down when returning from the beach. The breakfast room is really lovely and the breakfast is lovely especially the yogurt machine. The rooms are so comfortable and always lovely when returning after a hard day at the beach. We would definitely return if we are ever in the area.

12/06/2018

We stayed from 6/3-6/8. This is our 2nd year of staying here. This is a great hotel. Check in is easy, staff are friendly, rooms are clean and bed is comfortable. They provide everything you need, including refrigerator, microwave, paper towels, soaps shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. The rooms are large. The breakfast covers everything you could want. Great food and top notch service by the breakfast attendant. The pool is on the smaller size, but perfect for the location since everyone is heading to the beaches anyway. It's only open until 9:00 which is early for vacationers who want to swim and relax at the end of their day. 10:00 or 11:00 would be much better. That's the only thing I would change. The location is ideal. It's right near 75 and there's easy access to all the beaches and attractions. Everything was great!! We will be back!!

after being enticed by a good rate and good comments, I spent six nights here last month. I found the hotel to be very good, clean, rooms well decorated and spacious, good cable service and very good WIFI, attractive new bathrooms, comfortable beds which could have been a bit firmer by that's a personal preference. I didn't use the pool or breakfast so can't opine. staff were friendly and attentive on the few occasions when we interacted. I would be pleased to recommend this hotel and will probably stay here again.

The staff was great to deal with, always friendly. The location for myself was perfect, easy to get around, easy to find and still quiet enough to sleep while near the highway. The was very nice and clean. The only thing we would have liked was a stove to cook on. We found some great places to pick up local foods but did not have a place to cook them.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are delighted that you were happy with our staff and your room accommodations. Although we are an all-suite property; all rooms have kitchenettes that only consist of a mini fridge, microwave and wet bar.

Our stay at this hotel was a pleasant surprise during a hard trip for a funeral. We expected a great hotel from Best Western, but they surpassed our expectations. Krista from housekeeping was AMAZING! The front desk staff was exceptional, and the breakfast was wonderful. The beds were the most comfortable we've ever slept in. If we ever have a need to go out in this area of Florida again, we definitely know where we will be staying!

This place has everything you would want in the room - microwave, fridge, coffee maker, couch and chairs if you want to have people stop in for a drink, beds are queens but not much space on either side to get in or out if more than 2 people in room. But they have a superb breakfast, with good hours, a nice lounge area behind breakfast room and in lobby and they have most anything you would need to stay for sale in the lobby area. Good price also.

Our room was a suite with two queen beds, had a living room area with a couch ,one chair and a table with two chairs, a microwave, a fridge and a cabinet as well as one tv. A large bathroom with a full length counter, sink, mirror and blow dryer. Bathtub and shower. On the wall by the sink were dispensers with soap and lotion. They also had a bar soap. They had dispensers in the shower for soap, conditioner and body soap. Thought this was a good idea for our environment. The room was big and never felt crowded. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, they had fresh cut grapefruit, strawberries as well as bananas, oranges. Good variety of cold and hot foods. Large dining area as well as a second room with a couch, chairs and moreseating.the staff was friendly and very helpful. We were ten minutes from the Main Street of shops and restaurants and 15 minutes from the beach and pier or the south jetty were we saw a school of dolphins eating and playing. Will definitely stay at this hotel again and go back to the south jetty and the beach. Loved the street of shops and restaurants, food we had was excellent. There was four people in our party.

This is the best hotel to stay at in Venice. The suites are very large and have plenty of space for the 4 of us. Breakfast is great with a large variety. The staff are very friendly. We were able to borrow beach towels and other items which is very convenient. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, they had fresh baked cookies in the evening. This was our second stay and we plan on staying here every time we come to Venice.

New hotel. Nice styling inside and out. Large rooms with kitchenettes (microwave, sink, mini fridge). Pool was small and not well sheltered - it was squeezed in between the hotel and the front parking lot. Breakfast was ample, but quality was a little lacking (eggs). Some ants in the room, but management was very responsive to my initial review, so I am updating here. We would try the hotel again.

03/03/2018

Hotels around this area are very busy in March so the rates are high. I paid over $200 for a suite and was told that I had a good rate ......instead of $300. The two of us didn't need such a big room but that's all that was available. There's a well-maintained small outdoor pool. This is in a commercial area and is not at all near the beach. Breakfast area is very confined so it's difficult to get to the toast area. Marriott does a much better job with breakfast. This hotel had a lovely sitting room where we could visit with friends. Room was quite clean and staff is friendly.

Check in was a breeze. Room was large and very clean. Hot breakfast buffet was more than adequate. Pool was relatively small, but pool area was clean and the surroundings were landscaped to provide some shade if wanted. The staff was outstanding. There were even beach chairs and towels offered at no additional cost. Restaurants nearby. Close to town and beaches. I would highly recommend to anyone.

"Huge rooms, competitive price"

05/01/2018

This was better than most Best Westerns where I've stayed. The rooms were less expensive than other hotels off this Interstate 75 exit in Venice, FL. But the rooms were much bigger. The breakfast was standard for this type of hotel. Security standards could be improved: our first floor window had a broken lock and no screen (there was a stick in the frame to prevent window from opening), and a group of suspicious characters was hanging out on a picnic table behind the property. Otherwise, we had no problems and would probably visit this property again.

Katherine W, Manager at Best Western Plus Ambassador Suites Venice, responded to this review
Thank you for your recent review. All of our rooms here are suites, compared to the other nearby hotels that have the standard, smaller rooms. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and were able to get a bargain when booking with our hotel. The stick you are referring to is an extra lock bar made for windows, that is in place to provide extra security. Our property is a smoke free property which means there is no smoking within 30 feet of public areas. With this policy in place, we do have designated smoking areas located at each end of the hotel and out front, all being away from guest rooms. We thank you for your comments and have sent our maintenance technician to check all windows to see if any may be in need of repair. Thank you for staying with us, and we hope to see you back soon!

04/01/2018

We had not spent a night in a Best Western hotel in many years. But thanks to Trip Advisor we stayed in 2 locations in a row. This is a lovely property right off I 75. When I think about the typical BW hotel this Venice location has changed my whole image. The staff was very nice and the lobby & 1st impression when you pull in is upscale. I am reinstating my BW rewards membership again thanks to this hotel. Our only concern was the placement of the king bed too close to the window ventilation. We were in room 335 which seemed to be a different shape from the other king junior suites on that floor (end of the hall next to a staff room). It was hard walking next to the bed by the window but hopefully that is a problem with room 335 only. We will stay here again but look at the room before accepting it.

"Excellent experience."

This trip was for a family get-together and this site was ideally located for us at I-75. the stay was an excellent experience excepting that the TV service is bare bones and a disappointment for such a class operation.Not even pay per view movies. This was a big disappointment to a developmentally disabled quest. We left early for this reason.

This BW in Venice FL is my goto hotel whenever I go to Venice! The room is HUGE, the hot breakfast is wonderful, the staff is excellent. Before staying here I thought that BW hotels were an average hotel, but I was wrong...you get a lotta bang for your buck!

We enjoyed a very brief stay during the holiday season. The hotel was beautifully decorated and had a very cozy, seasonal feel, which include a large Christmas tree in the atrium, a manger upstairs in the mezzanine, foot soldiers guarding the dining room and other touches throughout -- very nicely decorated! Hotel has a lovely lounge area furnished with comfortable seating and a television, books, and floral decorations, making this a nice area to chat with friends or enjoy a cup of coffee (free in the lobby, as well as tea and hot chocolate!) There is a nice dining room for the breakfast buffet and casual use throughout the day. We are not fans of the typical hotel breakfast, however it was plentiful if you like that kind of thing: waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, oatmeal, and so on. The staff was very professional, helpful and pleasant. Our room was quiet with decent sound-proofing, uncommon for hotels in this price range. Though our room was near the elevator and the property itself is close to the highway, we hardly heard any cars or road noise at all. Enjoyed the cleanliness of the room, including the sanitary television remote controls. We were also glad they have chosen to do away with heavy (unhygienic) bedspreads and other bed coverings in favor a simple sheet plus a blanket, as this felt cleaner than usual hotel bedding. Various pillows were available for all levels of comfort. Excellent shower pressure and removable show head made for a wonderful shower. Convenient soap, shampoo, conditioner dispensers in the shower and bathroom vanity made for easy access and less waste. Convenient for our quick stay and we would very likely stay again. Recommend especially around Christmas if you enjoy pretty decorations.

This is an excellent Best Western hotel. The price was well worth the quality of our room and the service we received. I would be more than happy to stay there again. A breakfast was also included with the stay, and it was of very good quality.

"Was not a happy place and so sad last year was great"

20/11/2017

Let me say that the service and reception was great and very nice. I appreciate that greatly. Stayed her last year and was lovely. This year was like it was run down. We even were in one of the same rooms as last year completely different, run down, chairs and tables almost breaking, wobbly, furniture old, no soap or shampoo in the bathroom at all, you could see dust, the two rooms we were in smelled musty. This is such a conveniently placed hotel and close to I75, gas, some restaurants so makes it nice. Just decided to leave early. BW have really been doing a great job lately and becoming a place you want to stay that isn't run down. In this case I would by pass it unless they pay attention to some up dating and housecleaning issues. Soap and shampoo are nice. And before anyone asks why didn't we ask for some...they have those pre-filled things and press on them once in the shower couldn't ask then...

This is a fairly new, very nice Hotel for business or leisure travelers. The only complain, that the carpet in the elevator needs to be changed, but otherwise a great stay. The very clean and nicely decorated rooms are Suites with Kitchenette and seating area. It is close to Venice Downtown and the Beaches as well as only 20 Minutes to Sarasota.

15/11/2017

In spite of the fact that we booked our six-day stay 32 days in advance and the fact that we have been Gold Crown Club International members for many years, we were put on the noisiest side of the motel. Fortunately, the vehicular noise was blocked out by the racket from the air conditioner. The front desk staff was friendly but totally not helpful when it came to "local knowledge". Cynthia in the breakfast room was a cheerful start to our day!

We stayed the weekend for a funeral. The rooms and the establishment was clean. However there was a gas smell outside our room on the second floor. Informed the front desk and the cleaning staff but no one was able to isolate the problem. The breakfast included a full variety of options and quite satisfying. Advise to get there early.

Not worth the money spend... The staff was very prejudice and not friendly especially Ron... Lazy and does nothing but pace back and forth... Rooms had a unpleasant order of old mole... Refrigerator uncleaned, air conditioning system ventilation was blowing old mildew, rugs stunk... Very unsatisfied especially when I was moved 2 other times... One room was as bad as the next... A waste of money, a total waste!!!

Katherine W, Manager at Best Western Plus Ambassador Suites Venice, responded to this review
We appreciate when a guest takes the time to review our property, except when it is to totally distort the truth. There were never any issues of uncleanliness reported, and in fact, you requested to extend your stay with us past your original contracted departure date. We were able to accommodate your needs to stay another night, but unfortunately the suite you were in was already booked by another guest due to arrive that day, and was not available for your requested extension which caused you to become highly upset. We hope you understand that we always try every possible way to keep a guest in the same room when they wish to extend, but sometimes, when the hotel is in a sold out situation like we were that day, a room move is the only choice. We hope you can understand our obligation to the guest that booked that room for that day.

23/10/2017

Good clean room, nice breakfast. They do have beach items to check out. Towels, umbrella, chairs and shell scoops. That was not mentioned at check in but learned about it feom another couple. Small but nice pool to relax by. Beach is not too long of a drive.

Nice hotel on the I-75. Big clean rooms, comfy beds. Breakfast could be more diverse, but ok. Short drive to the Venice and I-75. Friendly staff and big parking lot. Nice restaurant called Brewburgers just 100 m from hotel. They has nice burgers and some craft beers.

"Sister Trip to Venice"

16/10/2017

My two sisters and I spent 7 nights in October at the Best Western Venice. We have family in the area and it was the first time we have all been together in Florida. Best Western Plus Ambassador Suites Venice more than provided us a home away from home. We had an awesome check in experience and after looking at the room we originally booked, we moved from two Queen beds to a single King with a pull out sofa. That allowed all three of us to share the room comfortably. That was done with a smile on the part of the desk person. We decided to use the included buffet as our breakfast and were happy with the presentation. Every day the egg and meat offering was different. Make your own pancakes and waffles from two different flavors of batter. All types of bread, bagels, english muffin and so on with your choice of topping. French toast, peppers and onions, bisquits and gravy, fresh yogurt , fruit and excellent coffee 24 hours a day. We used their pool which is salt water and it was very clean and refreshing. The whole property is beautifully maintained, quiet, and very clean. We recommend.

11/10/2017

We stayed at this hotel for a few days. It's easy access from highway 75. Our room was nice and clean. It had all hardwood floors and tile so it really displayed its cleanliness. And it was quite. The desk clerk was very nice to deal with. Prices were reasonable. Breakfast was complementary with the typical foods this type of hotel offers. I did have a couple of issues. The "kitchenette" area was so small it was a joke. It had a sink, microwave, mini fridge, a coffee maker and a small cabinet all crammed into a 3 foot area. Another issue I had was that the bed was too firm for me and made a sound when you tossed and turned due to the mattress cover. The room also jad a cycling A/C that woke me at times.

Could not get logged into my login to make the reservation. Called and made the reservations on the telephone. Go figure! The lady was nice and helpful. On arrival to Best Western, the check-in lady was very helpful. Was even able to check in early. The room was acceptable. My opinion the room was not set up right. Should have a TV in the sitting area. Bathroom was alright. Breakfast was good. Very clean breakfast area.

Spent 3 nights in dbl queen just after hurricane Irma. Clean updated room well serviced. Quiet room above well maintained outdoor pool; not on highway side. Tasty and well presented breakfast. Friendly staff. Only criticism is about rates. Do your homework online before walking in and get written rate information. Intentional or not, room change and rate confusion was definitely to my advantage; AAA card or not.

Venice Best Western beats Holiday Inn Express in Richmond Virginia I would highly recommend this motel as the best place I have stayed in my recent 4,000 mile road trip from Maine to Florida. I drove through New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, and Georgia. Best Western in Venice was far superior to the 10 places I stayed in the last two weeks of August 2017...

Jodi does a great job and very personable in house keeping. Stayed here 6 nights and I'm very picky. Bed was a little uncomfortable for me. Breakfast good but, standard has more choices. Very quiet, pool is great, salt water. Water pressure ok. Owners of this place should be very proud of their team.

Great price and facility. For the price range you won't find a better deal. Clean, great staff, and good breakfast. Exactly what you expect and more for this style of hotel. Rooms were large with microwave and fridge. Hotel had beach chairs and beach towels to loan out. If you just looking for a clean, comfortable and reasonably price place to stay then this is it. We were able to hit the Publix a block down the road to grab food for lunch while eating breakfast at the hotel - this left our only meal expense for dinner. Highly recommend.

The hotel was really nice for the price...I went through Priceline and spent less than 400 for a Monday-Thursday timeframe. It is convenient to local attractions, including the beach, and restaurants. I was really taken by the hotel's accommodations and mosat of the staff. Bethany was a pleasure. They did have a glitch in changing my towels on Day 1, but they corrected the error on Day2; it didn't happen again. I would strongly recommend this hotel.

We have stayed here four different times- with two of those stays lasting about a week. Our most recent stay was a couple of weeks ago. This hotel has a lot going for it. Exceptional housekeeping, friendly and helpful staff, and large well appointed rooms. The beds are comfortable, shower pressure is excellent, and the TV selection is quite good compared with other hotels at this price point. The complimentary breakfast is quite good as well. You cannot go wrong booking a stay here- as a matter of fact, we will be staying here again at the end of August. One of the best hotels for the money that I have stayed at- and my wife and I travel quite extensively so that is saying a lot.

Decided to take a 3-day vacation on the Gulf of Mexico and booked Best Western Plus Ambasdador Suites on Venice, Fl. We absolutely love Venice and surrounding area and have spent many a vacation there but had never chosen BWPAS! No, it wasn't on the beach but their hospitality was so far superior to any other hotel in the area we had booked on prior vacations. Our room was immaculate and had every amenity possible. We had the most spectacular 3 days. We will most definitely try to book BWPAS first for our next trip to Venice, Fl.

I forgot to mention for 4 grown men on work to be able to sit down and enjoy breakfast is a plus, but this isn't your typical continental breakfast service. This is by far the best and largest breakfast service i've ever seen. I stayed for the week and will be returning next week as well. I hope to be able to book with this location again because you can't get this much anywhere else unless you want to open the check book.

The room was well-appointed and clean, comfortable and quiet. I thought the rates were very reasonable, too.

We were in town for my daughter's graduation and chose to stay at the BW. We have been here before and it has always been a good place to stay. They have a good breakfast available. The rooms and nice and comfortable. It is a good location to visit places in the area including Sarasota, Venice and Port Charlotte.

A very clean , Hotel . with a heated outdoor pool A Good HOT Breakfast Rooms were spacious and well fitted out. Situated just off Hwy 75. near Venice, Florida. A range of eating places are within 1/2 mile ONE DRAWBACK is that The Beaches of Venice are about 4 miles away. You Will need a car to go to the Gulf of Mexico sea beaches

This was our fist stay in a Best Western Plus and we weren't disappointed. The breakfast was standard hotel fare plus extras like whipped cream and other toppings for your pancakes, a nicer seating area and more juice options. The bed was wonderful! We only stayed one night passing through on our way to another destination, but I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here two nights. This is my second stay at this hotel. It is a convenient location to I-75 and has nearby places to eat as well as shop for groceries to place in the in- room refrigerator. You can also get to downtown Venice in about 15 minutes. Our room was very clean, a generous size and well equipped. There is even a mounted magnifying mirror in the bathroom. A second counter with a mirror outside the bathroom makes doing hair and makeup easy while someone else showers. Breakfast was adequate with eggs, bacon or sausage, cereals, waffles and pancakes. There were numerous condiments and a choice of breads. There was fresh fruit available also. Coffee is available 24x7. I highly recommend this hotel and am sure I will be staying here again.

23/04/2017

My family and I (including children 9 and 14) stayed 1 night at this hotel on a 2 week tour of Florida. This hotel is just a few miles from the main Venice area and was perfect for a stopover. In particular the lobby reception staff were superb and very helpful, specifically they showed us how to get to the Venice beach to collect shark teeth fossils, lent us the Florida 'snow shovels' to collect the shark teeth along with 4 beach towels and allowed a later check out all at no extra cost. As other reviews have commented the free buffet breakfast was very good. Superb service and we will be using more Best Western hotels in the future.

20/04/2017

Well located hotel within easy reach of Venice town which is lovely. Walkable restaurants close by. Pity the outside space with the pool is in the front car park, not very inviting. Our room was clean and adequate. We stayed three nights and not once was the elevator floor cleaned, off putting !! Being British we weren't at all impressed with the breakfast offering. Paper plates, cups, and plastic cutlery ? No thanks. Good to have an all day coffee machine though. All in all an average Hotel, but pricey for the standard.

Went there to stay on way home from Fl to see a friend whose wife had just passed. The place was clean and the bed was comfortable but the A/C was so next to the bed that every time it turned on it woke us up. Needless to say it wasn't the best place for a good nights sleep

08/04/2017

First of all, let me say that the customer service was great! My iPhone battery was very low and I forgot my charger and I mentioned it to Ron, the front desk person, and he immediately produced one from the office for me to use. We happily returned it after 2 hours. The King bed was comfortable.The room was spacious...bathroom counters were granite...kitchenette in our room. Large, flat screen TV, 6 pillows...complimentary full breakfast...scrambled eggs, bacon, waffles, oatmeal. We will definitely be back!

"No dissapointment here"

05/04/2017

Relatively modern, clean as a whistle, big chain hotel that delivers what one would hope for. Check in was efficient with a change of room handled by a most accommodating front desk welcoming person. The suite was quiet and quite comfortable. The breakfast buffets were also quite good with a variety of eggs, bacon, juices and so forth. The breakfast attendant was ever present and did a nice job making sure that the offerings were fresh and the area was cleaned up often.

9am and breakfast was missing many items and not efficient set up. Breakfast is from 6:30-9:30 not until 9am and let items run out and start cleaning. Out of several bread/bagel/pastry items. Out of Cream cheese.

28/03/2017

We took a suite at the Hotel with a spa bath for 2 nights. Rooms are large and quite well furnished. King Bed is comfortable, TV's in both rooms, with 2 settees, and small table and chairs. Bedroom a little on the small size, but living area has plenty of room. Spa bath has shower over tub and is a little small for 2 people. Jets are also not very strong. Room is on ground floor, presumably because of spa bath. Hotel is beside main road, so can be a little noisy, but not too bad. Front desk was pleasant and efficient. Pool outside is nice with plenty of room around. Hotel is off the main road but a little difficult to locate to start with. Is not cheap, but it was Spring Break in Florida, so may be cheaper out of season. Breakfast was reasonable but basic buffet style. All in all quite a nice hotel but perhaps a little expensive for what you get.

"Great base for the local beaches"

5
29/11/2016

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!

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.

08/10/2016

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.

The rooms were nice and comfy.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Thanks for coming back. Next time there will be new lobby furniture and much more powerful WiFi and new carpet in many of the rooms. We try to improve every year in order to remain looking and feeling like new. Thanks for noticing. Jan

"Poor customer service and management oversight"

1
22/06/2016

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.

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"

21/06/2016

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!

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!)

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!

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.

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.

"Nice large rooms but..."

02/05/2016

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.

ManagerVeniceFl, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Ambassador Suites Venice, responded to this review

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!

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.

"Very pricey for what we got"

25/03/2016

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.

ManagerVeniceFl, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Ambassador Suites Venice, responded to this review
Thank you for your comments on our hotel. I realize that prices are high in season. All the hotels in Venice are similar in prices all year. In order for us to continue to upgrade our property to keep up with customer demand and to survive during off season we must make our profit in the 3 months we have. If you are still house hunting off season,I'm sure you will enjoy the price as well as the rest. Hope you get to come back. Jan

Staff were friendly and rooms were clean. Breakfast was adequate, nothing noteworthy but good enough to keep you until lunch. Would definitely stay there again.

"Very comfortable hotel on the outskirts of Venice"

28/01/2016

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 :)

Dbcooperisalive gives this hotel 4 1/2 stars. This place is very clean. Our room with king bed was awesome. The continental breakfast was pretty good. 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. The bacon tasted like cardboard. One bite was enough for me. The sausage tasted good though. In saying that, this place was awesome. The question is would dbcooperisalive come back and the answer is a resounding YES

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.

I was unexpectedly delayed in Venice when I checked into this hotel on Christmas day. I was happy to see a huge Christmas tree in the lobby.

The breakfast buffet was pretty good. The price of only $99 was unbelievably low for the Quality

"Best hotel on my trip south!"

20/12/2015

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!!!!

Scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage links, yogurt, fruit, juices, waffles, pancakes, ect. Room large and comfortable. Staff great. Heated pool was nice. They have a large family room with 4 TV's near lobby area. It was great place to visit with family. Overall a great place to stay.

"Good choice in the area"

09/12/2015

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.

ManagerVeniceFl, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Ambassador Suites Venice, responded to this review
Thank you so much. The casings on the beds are bedbug protectors. We never wanted to have an issue with that so we spent a lot of money to protect our hotel and our guests. I also like to check the mattress and if I can't get to it because of the protector, than neither can the critters. I'm glad you noticed. Jan

"Rich was extremely rude."

13/11/2015

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.

ManagerVeniceFl, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Ambassador Suites Venice, responded to this review
I'm sorry to hear about your experience. We usually are very good about being able to handle requests but we were very busy and since check out isn't until 11am we have to give time to get the rooms ready.

This motel is clean and fresh. The front desk is polite and friendly. The room was very clean and the decor was in excellent taste. We went to the desk from suggestion form dinner and the sent us to Sharkey's on the Pier. We had an excellent meal and enjoyed a beautiful walk on one of the most beautiful piers on the gulf. We were lucky enough to catch it at sunset which made a perfect ending to a beautiful day. We have a great night rest in a comfortable bed, a nice breakfast and left fat and sassy.

This Best Western location provides a clean comfortable place to stay in a good location and very reasonable price. I stayed at the best Western in Venice Florida for three nights in October 2015. If on the accommodations to be comfortable for my stay. The hotel is a little older however it is well-maintained. 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. It's a well-run just clean quiet in a good place to retire at the end of a long day.

After returning from a visit to Key West, we came through Venice returning home. Tired and needing a place to stay for the night, we looked at Trip Advisor for reviews of locals hotels. As there are not many hotels in this little town, we were surprised to see the reviews for this hotel. (I have been skeptical of Best Westerns) I must admit that Trip Advisor has once again not let us down. Surprisingly, this is a very, very nice hotel. 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. I will also say, while we were there, we also fell in love with this cute, quaint little town....
