Thought we had a great deal last minute. We knew the hotel was going to be less than desirable but we needed a hotel. The front desk lady was very accommodating to us. We had the room in a matter of minutes. The next morning we left the hotel and left behind a beautiful white embroidery silk blouse by accident.... More

The Ocean Gateway Inn is a budget motel, so it's not fancy, but it is clean, has a pool, and is located next door to the best Mexican restaurant in Santa Paula. Try the chilaquiles for breakfast, or the mixed seafood bake for dinner.

This place is a 1 star at best. Yes it's the number two hotel in town but it's a mess. I stayed once and will never be back. Ventura is 15 minutes away. Drive it you will thank me. Imagine a motel 6 built 30 years ago and not taken great care of. Now you know what to expect at... More

As a frequent cost effective traveler, I am always looking to get the best bang for my buck. I looked no further Ocean Gateway Inn. It was close enough to my favorite surf spot Surfer's Point in Ventura and right in the heart of the cute little town of Santa Paula, walking distance to things.

Ok stayed at this place, as we were very tired of driving. I suggest drive a little farther!. Rooms were old and not clean. Noticed what seemed like stains/snot, around head board. The sheets did not look clean, (hair/lots of it), used our own sheets. When I removed the pillow case, ugg! it was stained yellow...looked like the sprinkler head,... More

Nice, friendly staff. Clean newly remodeled rooms. Little loud at night but I would definately come here again. Got a lot for what we paid for. I am glad we went here and not to some over priced fancy big name place.

I've stayed here a few times and have enjoyed my stays here. This is an older motel that was formerly a Travelodge back in the 90's here in Santa Paula,CA. and yes could use a little makeover and maybe some upgrades in certain areas, although the room decor is old or outdated they are kept clean and management is always...

Room was ok, big for the tiny bed, but walls were filthy with unidentifiable stains in the room as well as hallway. Carpet was filthy and matted, very old. Towels were thin and felt disgusting even if they were clean. Bedding seemed ok, sticky gross coating on all the shelves of the entertainment center. TV was old and tiny. I... More

This motel needs a coat of paint, new carpets and...well, pretty much everything else. Tired decor, pillows that have been slept on until 1" high, an included "breakfast" that consists of Sunny Delight instead of real juice, bad coffee and a few sad sweet rolls and pastries. Room smelled stale, and a small dog's yapping came from the room next... More

My family and I arrived at the "ocean gateway inn" in Santa Rosa, Ca on July 5th 2013 around 9:30p.m., after spending the day at my son's baseball tournament. We were all very tired and looking forward to a relaxing, peaceful night of rest. We really had no issues with our check in except that we were placed on the... More
