This is the 2nd time we have stayed at country inn. Great location, you can walk to downtown, the beach and most of the restaurants. Nice happy hour and full hot breakfast We had an ocean view rm w/ 2 queens. The beds were more comfy than the king on our last trip. Try Lure Fish House. Outstanding !

We stayed here on our way home from San Simeon because it was $69 versus a higher rate at the Best Western next door.It is a tight space where you unload your luggage in front of the hotel. The one bad thing is the small elevator that services all three floors and the parking garage too.You may have to wait... More

The hotel is in a prime location in downtown Ventura. Walking distance to nearby attractions, restaurants and nightlife. The included breakfast is rather good, and the rooms are large and comfortable. There is a nearby rail bridge that can cause quite a bit of noise and actually shook our windows, but that's hardly the hotel's fault. I would say that... More

Had a great overnight stay here with my friend when we went for a mini vacation in Ventura Beach. It wasn't a new hotel but the you can tell that it's really clean and they keep it tidy. It was walking distance to the beach which is why we booked it. the amenities are great considering the price. We had... More

This is the only Country Inn where I've stayed that was not built as a Country Inn. It is obvious this place used to be another chain. Partly because of that, you will not get the quality you're expecting. No cookies at the front desk like every other location has. WiFi was not working when I stayed here. This is... More

Our room was quite large, with a couch, refrigerator, two sinks, and flat screen TV. The hotel had a number of useful amenities, including an excellent free breakfast (with eggs, meat etc), free parking, a coin-op guest laundry (only one washer & dryer though), and free beer and wine at happy hour. Our room faced away from the freeway and... More

Everything looks old and outdated, not so friendly staff and the free food was not good enough to eat for free. I would definitely stay somewhere else next time. The only thing I did like was the tv and the air conditioning.

Let's start with the "B" health dept rating I saw posted in the breakfast area. Not a good sign -- they probably don't keep something hot enough (I didn't ask). My understanding is that for the health dept to give out a "B" instead of an "A," things aren't adding up to a good standard of cleanliness. That being said,... More

This is a really good value in Ventura. The rooms are large with a mircrowave/small refrigerator included. Breakfast in the morning was good, had lots of hot options including eggs, bacon, hash browns, waffles, biscuits and gravy and oatmeal. There was fresh fruit, muffins, toast etc. Apples were left out all day should you want a snack. In the evening... More
