From the photo of the front gates this place looks nice, however its slightly seedy, a bit dirty and the wifi doesn't work, even with the correct code. I have to say that the young lad on reception was very helpful, even though he was on the other side of a window and dealing with me through a hatch. Got... More

This place was old and run down.We booked online at the last minute. Unfortunately there was a group of young men in the next room who admitted they did not care who they disturbed. We had prebooked 2 nights online and after 1 night with no sleep were ready to leave. It is run down and dirty. This is a... More

First off, what the picture of the outside doesn't show you is on either side of the entrance, there are 2 Liquor stores, both of which had questionable people hanging out at all hours. When I pulled in with my family, a resident of the place told me "this is a reeaalll quiet place". I wanted to ask if his... More

Despite the fact that we had a voucher of booking system. The question: "What about my money. Are you going to chrage it?"? He said "NO". The... More

The Ocean View Motel Ventura is the most disgusting motel I have ever had the the misfortune to visit. We checked in and out within 12 minutes. When I reported the disgusting condition of the room to the manager, we was kind enough to offer us an alternative room ( LOL) We declined. The manager did provide a full refund... More

The place is the worst! The first room I went in was riddled with mold, the inside of what they called a frige was covered in it. The water smelled and looked like dirt. I pulled the bed back to plug in my cell phone and the wall and floor were stained in blood. He moved me to another room... More

Unless you need a place to meet your crystal meth dealer, I would not recommend this motel. It's basically a long term, just got out of jail, and need a lay low until the drugs wear off. It's just a milimeter above an SRO (single occupancy room-), but not pricewise. Go to the Motel-6 on Harbor View drive, for a... More
