This is the second time we have stayed here. But this time for couple of days. This time we got a room with a balcony with a view of the ocean and the pier. We loved it! The sound was not to bad, they have it in closed. To cut the noise, which worked if you kept the window closed.... More

I think I was expecting too much by the Trip Advisor ratings. This is a two-and-a-half star hotel, and I think the Trip Advisor reviewers have taken that into account with their ratings and comments. It is worn, smells worn and is immediately next to the freeway and rail tracks. It is, however, close to the beach and I'm sure... More

The rooms were a little bit rundown but, otherwise, no complaints. The size of the room was very comfortable, the happy hour was a nice touch, and it was a quick walk to the beach, nearby parks, and plenty of shops and restaurants. We were really impressed by the variety of breakfast options. Our room was on the side facing... More

Hotel is a little worn but makes it up with great Breakfast and great spacious rooms. Definitely worth the stay. Room was great for my family of three and had lots of space for my three year old son. 42" flat screens in the room and great spread for breakfast. They even have a welcome event in the evenings.

We arrived a little early and the first room they gave us was sub-standard, especially the bathroom. Having stayed here before we knew to ask for another room, which was an improvement. We parked in the garage, but repeatedly had trouble using the elevator. It turns out the card reader has been broken for a while, and although we saw... More

I had stayed here before and planned to stay often since my daughter now lives in Ventura, but never again . . . they have lost a customer for their entire chain. We arrived at 11:00 at night, after driving 17 hours, to find that they had cancelled our reservation and given our room away. No empathy, no offer to... More

The facilities are a little worn, the room was a bit dank, and the location was odd. That said, it was a decent hotel and served one of the best breakfast buffets I've ever had in a hotelnof this class. Very friendly staff.

Our family loves this hotel! We have been staying there since my daughter was born over eleven years ago. It is our spot! Walking distance to Main Street, free COMPLETE breakfast for each of us, free(minus the tip) happy hour with wine, beer, and snacks, big room with two big beds, clean hotel, two sinks, one inside the bathroom, and...

This hotel is right next to the freeway, but we had a room on the opposite end of the hotel and we did not hear much traffic. In fact, the freeway did not bother us at all. The rooms definitely need updating, but they were clean, of decent size and acceptable enough for our quick weekend stay in Ventura. There... More

This place was lovely, but it is extremely hard to find since it is set way back at the end of a street that runs next to a freeway on ramp. Would advise taking your gps to assist you, if i hadn't had mine i would have given up.
