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

I visit Ventura regularly but I had never stayed at Bella Maggiore before. It was a pleasant surprise. It should be said right up front that this is not a brand new, state of the art hotel like the Wynn in Las Vegas. Just the opposite. This is an older property and it shows it age but it also reflects... More

We have been staying here for 18 years both on business trips and for pleasure. It's always felt like home - with friendly staff and affordable, comfortable accommodations. Until our past 2 stays this year when the hotel staff were simply rude to us. This past summer we were staying on business and during our breakfast the staff interrupted us... More

When visiting our son and his family in Ventura, CA we usually stay at the Bella Maggiore Inn. We love the location, as it's within walking distance to Erik's house, shopping, dining and the beach. The place is very unique. It has that old European charm. The lobby is beautifully decorated with antique furniture, and large paintings adorn the walls.... More

Hotel ambiance and appearance is designed to look European and has charm. Property is pretty well kept up and the rooms are decorated nicely so you forget the age of the place until you walk across the room and hear the floorboards squeak badly. Most staff are very friendly, cordial and helpful. Complimentary breakfast from a full menu is excellent,... More
