Stayed only for the weekend but my husband was put in there for a week for work. Not much from the outside but inside look fully renovated. The room we had was really big and the bed and beddings are very comfortable. Beautiful granite and convenient with microwave and small fridge. The rooms are very clean and well maintained.

From the outside the place looks a little dated (this is being dealt with in 2015 the manager advised me) but our room was very good. The bathroom was the best of our cross America road trip. Really clean and fresh rooms. Quiet location at night, a few decent places within walking distance for dinner and drinks. Downtown less than... More

It is an older hotel and good hotel for the price. Nice family owned hotel. Not much parking but it is close to the beach for under $100 in January. Of course there are nicer hotels in Ventura but you will be paying a lot more. It is a good deal. I would stay here again.

It is a bit pricey for what you get, but the bathroom was very clean and pretty new. The lock on the door didn't work as it should but you were able to lock it from inside. The staff was nice and friendly.

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

I stayed 2 days, and things that didn't bother me so much on the first day were a bit more annoying the second time around. Pros: -Free WiFi that was very usable -First night had a very nice and helpful receptionist -Price (though, we apparently got some sort of discount) -Location: easy to get to from 101, close to harbor...

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.
