The sign said free high speed Internet. ..it lied. Can't get online at all lol. Really nice staff. Room is clean although dated. TV needs upgrade as does the Internet connection. Nice Dennys next door. Close to a lot of shopping etc..besides the Raiders playing at the Cowboys training camp!

We needed somewhere to go after a long trip and decided to stay here to avoid driving home. we got in a little late and it was clearly not the place to be. The rooms were not that great, non working fridge, gross shower, windows were open when we arrived. Kids screaming at 6 am and running all over the... More

Stayed for 4 days in July 2013 and was pleasantly surprised because the price was very reasonable given that the Inn is a pleasant walk over the freeway to a nice beach and boardwalk, and only a few blocks from downtown Ventura, which is fun to explore. Will be planning a trip again in August 2014 and hope to stay... More

This is a great value. When we first walked into the room it was stuffy and smelled a bit musty, but once we opened the window & let the air flow, the smell went away. The important thing is the room was clean, & the beds comfortable. I always check the matresses wherever I stay, & I was surprised to... More

Only complain would be the drapes they are worn out. If you can fix this I will be back! and thanks again to the receptionist you were wonderful... More

We travel to the area frequently to visit family. So glad we only had to endure one night. We believe we are realistic in our expectations. We knew this was an older budget motel but appeared to have decent reviews on trip advisor. It was filthy. Grime and stickiness on door knobs, fixtures and walls. Floors in bathroom spots on... More

While there is no exceptionally special about these rooms; they fit the basic needs of the guest and are the best value for your dollar. The Free and Easy Parking is a bonus and the breakfast at on-grounds Denny's is even sweeter!l Hospitality is a priority and service is top-notch.

Under 100 including Tax...You get what you pay for....Bed was comfortable, Internet and Heater worked...Carpet filthy...Bathroom and Bed clean...Very Noisy as far as you could here the toilet in the next room flush and people walking outside...I'm sure this could be considered a No Tell Motel to some.
