We stayed for 2 nights to visit Los Padres National Forest and Channel Islands National Park. The location was good enough for this purpose, with a grocery very close by.

The Viking is a poorly maintained, haphazardly patched motel. The kitchenette had no utensils but for an old knife. I had to ask for a coffeemaker and it was heavily used and stained. The paint on the bathroom ceiling was flaking off and when the guest above showered, it literally rained in our bathroom. Furniture was non matching and looked... More

The room I had was dirty and some kind of very harsh chemical cleaner or "deodorizer" was used to try to cover it up. My lungs were burning, eyes watering, and I was getting so sick, I had to leave . Money wasted.

The room was smelly, very old furniture with worn out beds. Directly next to the main street- so really loud at night. No coffee for the coffee machine. The tennant was friendly. We wouldn't stay there another time.

I am not sure how anyone could rate this anything above terrible. The bars on the windows should have been our first clue. We were a larger group that took up several rooms and they were all the same! There were brown stains in the bottom of the shower; the tiles loose and falling off the wall. Each room had... More

We stayed in Ventura before our flight to New Zealand from LAX, so needed somewhere to get a good nights sleep. We came across this place, and although quirky, it was a really cool place to stay. We were given a choice of rooms, and chose one with a spa / jacuzzi which was a nice touch! There was a... More

Arrived late into Ventura one evening and stayed one night. The room was large and clean and had a large t.v and jacuzzi which my wife thought was great. The room had its own separate kitchen area where you could prepare food although there was very little in the way of cutlery. Bed was comfortable but room was a little... More
