We ended up staying here as it was the last hotel with room in the Ventura area. WHAT A GROSS PLACE. We paid $163 with tax for an outdated, very filthy room with two full/double beds. I arrived to find out that the room they had reserved for us "had a man inside it". The lady got her manager to... More

I am a budget traveler who wanted to visit Ojai but didn't want to pay the high prices for a room so I opted to room here in nearby Santa Paula. I was very happy with the great customer service provided by Mr Patel and his staff. I liked the large room that was fairly quiet and I slept well.... More

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. General manager Mitul Patel extends... More

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...
