The people at this hotel are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little worn but clean. It's not really a beach hotel since is closer to the 101 than the ocean. I was able to check in early and the front desk staff were clear about how to find my room and where to get the best fish... More

This is just off the beach and easily accessible. Plenty of parking around as well. Suggest staying off the ground floor on weekends - kids and pool (loud and late). Bed was not terrible, but it wasn't comfortable either. The rooms are a little dated, and could use some update (especially the bath/shower. Handles stuck and was hard to get... More

We stayed here to try and save a little money and use a "friends & family discount". Upon arrival we were told that they would not accept the lower rate, it was late so we decided to stay. Our sink was backed up with an awful black sludge for two days, which the staff knew about because we called numerous... More

What a lovely hotel, we really enjoyed staying here. The hotel is in great condition and the staff are brilliant. Special mention to Melissa and Gwen at the front desk who went above and beyond the call of duty and were first class.

The lobby is impressive. They offered us free wine and snacks. Everyone very friendly. The surprise was that our room needed serious updating. I mentioned it to the front desk and they said they are planning on updating the rooms. The shower flowed hot and cold and so I had to keep stepping back and waiting until it was OK... More

We chose the Ventura Beach Marriott as a last minute overnight stop as a halfway point to our next destination.

I stayed here on business for three nights and was pleasantly surprised at the small feel of this large hotel. The concierge lounge can get a little busy in the mornings, but the food selection there is great. The hotel fitness center is the BEST I've ever seen in a Marriott property! The outdoor lounge/courtyard area is so cute -... More

Pros: Comfy beds Nice pool area Easy parking and access to rooms Friendly staff Cons: Room smelled like cigarette smoke Nickel and dining (fees for wifi - isn't that so tired by now across the industry??), $14 to self-park, $3.50 for the water bottles in the room Overall an average stay.

Great Hotel close to the Beach. I stay here for business often when the rates are favorable. The hotel and rooms seem to be a little old and could definitely use an update, but it is still pretty good. You can't beat the location. It is a minute walk to the sand and close to a nice boardwalk that you... More
