Looking for inexpensive accommodations in a safe setting, this motel may be for you. I was recently put up at the Rode Way inn in Ventura CA on business.

Not suitable for families. The floor and windows were dirty. The fridge was filthy and the neighbours were having noisy sex!!! Location is far from the harbour and the promenade. Checked in and out again in less than 2 hours. Avoid this hotel, it's cheap but not cheerful!

The person on the desk was very pleasant and easy to deal with. Not sure if it is under new management or what but we had no... More

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

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
