Nice place to stay. The neighborhood is clean, quiet and within walking distance to the beach. Traffic in the area including the beach was very light, which is so unusual to me. Our room was clean and comfortable. Drinks and snacks from 5p to 7p. Free buffet breakfast 7a to 10a. Free WiFi. Bicycle's available for rent. We came for... More

This is an older, but nicely refurbished property with a friendly staff. Reasonable room rates. Very clean and comfortable. My guest room was larger than normal, which was nice. The only down-side to my guest room is the old style air conditioner build into the wall. I found it noisy and had to turn it off to sleep. Also, there... More

Dear Jim D, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our hotel. I noticed you mentioned the variety of restaurants near by, we do have a couple that are walking distance, but if you go in the Channel Islands Harbor area there are some more choices. And that's only less than 5 minutes away from us... More

the staff were really warm and welcoming. They allowed us to check in early, which was really helpful for us as we are on a 6 month road trip and needed to be places without taking the bags with us. Our room was a really good size - two queen beds. Lots of lovely big towels. Nice and quiet even... More

My husband and I just got back from a quick 2 night trip from this place. We stayed in the king suite which was nice. We had a separate bedroom and living area with a mini fridge,microwave and a tv area. We were in walking distance from the beach and there were eating places across from the hotel. We would... More

We stayed at this hotel on two occasions and both were equally enjoyable. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast buffet a notch above the average for hot food. The rooms are large and very nicely designed, the beds very comfortable with lots of pillows, and all amenities. The hotel is not far from the beach which due to... More

My family and I had been here several years ago (back when it used to be called "Country Inn Suites). It is quite evident that Holiday Inn Express invested nicely in in upgrading the facility. However, having said that, it really hasn't change all that much. This place is located very closely to the Port Hueneme Naval CB Base. As... More

Our family stayed at this hotel over Thanksgiving week 2014 as we have done for many years including when it was the Country Inn. Unfortunately, as a Holiday Inn Express for only a short time the establishment has never met the superior quality of the Country Inns including the breakfasts and evening get together snacks and drinks. Due to location... More

A mistake we made is to book this hotel. The front desk clerk who helped us to check in was nonchatty which is ok. The room was big because they took out quite some essential furniture. The AC in our room was loud and smelly, no wonder it was off when we just checked in. Somehow the bathroom and the... More
