The last reviewer says he booked and they took his money but he got there and they had no reservation for him. He isn't alone. Our treatment by them was even worse. Last September we were on holiday from New Zealand travelling in California. We booked at Crystal Lodge through Booking.com which we use a lot. We had to pay... More

Doesn't look like much from outside, but nice on the inside. King bed room was nicely decorated, had modern & updated bathroom, comfortable bed, microwave and mini fridge. Be sure to pack your own hair dryer. Suggest they put in new locks with deadbolt and security latch so guests feel a bit more secure, just an old fashioned handle lock... More

This place is a hidden gem. Located minutes from downtown and the pier/harbor. Rooms aren't big but they're perfect for a quick stay. Bed was heavenly and the flat screen tv was right on time for the husband. Props to Jack at the front desk for a super smooth check in and solid suggestions for restaurants. We will definitely return.

I read reviews that the hotel looks much nicer on the inside. Our room was small but beautifully remodeled and nice. Bed was comfortable. Close to the beach & nightlife. Parking was a little cramped late at night and I had to park my car on the side street :( Other than that. Yeah it was a pleasant stay.

This place is amazing ! Good location , it's not too far to downtown Ventura. People are wonderful. Rooms are really clean, pretty , we thought we were in a 5 stars hotel ! Do not judge from the outside. The service is excellent. If you have a chance to go there , GO for it :)

We stayed here for one night. Very nice rooms, great beds, parking in front of the room, free Wifi, very friendly staff and new-looking bathrooms. All in all: we had a great stay at this hotel. And the price was low! I would really recommend this hotel. If you go to Ventura, be sure to go to Pete's breakfast. The... More

The rooms definitely are better than the building's outside, but the bed was too soft for my taste...For the price it is OK, neighborhood is a little sketchy, front desk staff were helpful, parking is pretty limited.
