"The owners of A Place to Be are the friendliest most helpful people I and my family have ever met. They go out of their way to make your stay comfortable & easy going. We definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing time & vacation. Nokomis/Venice Beaches are two of the best in the area by far.”

"Great old Florida style motel. Great value for your dollar to be so close to the beach. Rooms were clean and decently maintained. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Very quiet here day and night. Close proximity to downtown Venice. Would definitely stay here again!"
