This hotel is undergoing some upgrades the room was nice and the people running it were very nice and helpful. It was overpriced but that was because the Ventura fair was in full swing and rooms were hard to get. Normally it would be priced lower, the location is nice close to main street and close to the beach. When... More

We stayed in a king room for 2 nights while attending workshops in Ventura and were very pleased with our stay. The new manager has excellent hosting skills. She helped us with finding dinner options and is really friendly. We stayed in a room in the back and slept like a rose. Only minus: there was still packaged food left... More

The room is a little bit dark and basic, but the price is not high. The people of the hotel are friendly. The carpark is behind the hotel and a little bit dark. It is close to the highway and has a couple of restaurants in the neighbourhood. There is no breakfast included.

Stayed for one night. Was a bit worried about the outside appearance (specially during night time), but when we got in the facilities, we were happy about it. Clean and affordable. Good for a budget hotel and quick stay.

After reading about other hotels/motels with lots of problems for the price I wanted to pay, this was a gem. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, it even had free wireless, a microwave and refrigerator, newly decorated rooms and a big screen TV. What I was not expecting was ceiling molding and name brand toothpaste and shampoo! It... More
