visited this hotel last year and enjoyed the ambiance, the breakfast (included in the price of the room), and a great European feel... but tried to book a room the other night. sadly the person who answered the phone (after 6-8 rings) said there were too many different rates to give me over the phone and i had to come...

Having an ultra active couple days exploring small towns of California from San Diego up to San Francisco, my husband and I have decided that we need some sleep before we continue to move further. We have found on a map a small town to crush called Ventura. Though, the town seemed charming and a small downtown B&B we have... More

The Bella Maggiore has seen better days, but it is not without its charms, plus it has a resident ghost. Would be great if someone would invest some bucks here, as it has character lacking in newer establishments.

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
