Dirty threadbare old rooms, terrible appaling beds, old tired bathromms, no elevator and many stairs. Breakfast was a disaster, bad food, eggs were brought out but no cutlery no toast, then when eggs were cold, the toast was brought out, the fruit was old, there was no jam, no butter. Terrible place. And appallingly old failing wifi!

We have not been back to Ventura California in over 14 years. This place is our standby place for a room. The rooms are a bit rundown and need some paint and updating, but overall very happy with the service, cleanliness and service. The breakfast is awesome and prompt. I would totally stay here again and not move so we... More

Sitting rooms, cozy furniture, piano, fireplace, ivy covered courtyard with massive old stone water feature, second floor patio with another sitting room, complimentary appetizers and wine between 5-6, complimentary parking. And a great location in the heart of downtown Ventura. Yes, if you have a room facing California Street, bring your earplugs. Lots of nightlife in downtown! We were on... More

We definitely enjoyed our stay here. The staff was more than welcoming. The only quirk is that because it is on the main drag, it gets REALLY loud at night on the weekends. They do warn you about this prior to even booking your room, so for that, I am grateful. The place isn't the most modern, but they make... More

We just returned from a two day midweek stay at the Bella Maggiore. We have been dedicated patrons for over fifteen years and always look forward to the relaxed atmosphere. As usual, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms and common areas are clean and well maintained. The reasonable room rates include a "real breakfast" from a menu in... More

Have stayed here a few times, always with friends, and always a great time. There are supposed to be ghosts (although I have encountered them in Virginia City, NV, I didn't see any here). The rooms are nice, some smaller than others, but there are nice public areas for sitting and reading a book and relaxing. And we always had... More

There was one staff member who was extremely RUDE. Unfortunately, I didn't catch her name (since she didn't introduce herself to us). She was an older woman with long blonde hair. And everytime my bf or I would walk past her at the front desk, we'd greet her. And every single time she'd turn away and completely ignore us. We... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Bella Maggiore several times. This isn't a 5-star hotel, and it's a little frayed around the edges. BUT: It's location downtown places it within a short walk to all the best restaurants and nightspots. The rooms are clean and the breakfast served in Nona's restaurant in the lovely courtyard make this hotel... More

We were in Ventura to visit Channel Islands National Park. Being tired of chain hotels, we were looking for a unique place to stay and found it in Bella Maggiore Inn. The location is great, right in the middle of old downtown with shops and restaurants galore. I was really surprised by the negative reviews of the staff. We thought... More
