Some services rate this as a 3 star location but I don't think so. The room was large, clean and out of date. The Inn is right up against the freeway but we were on the opposite side and things were very quiet. The included breakfast was more extensive than I expected with eggs, bacon, sausage, and more in addition... More

Have stayed here several times over past few years. Seems to have declined slightly but still good. Bring your own hair conditioner, lotion, shower cap etc. as they provide only shampoo and soap. Manager's free happy hour is a plus. Breakfast is ok. Location is good.

Everything I read about this place is pretty much true: It's a little bit old It's a little run down It's a little bit dirty - especially the floors It's a little bit smelly The elevator is a little bit creaky - wouldn't feel comfortable in that thing over three floors It's a little bit noisy (freeway and train adjacent...

I was extremely disappointed with this hotel. Stayed for 7 days and the lobby carpeting was not vacuumed the whole time (I checked every day and the same crumbs and paper scraps were still there). Our room was semi-clean but it was obvious that they hadn't vacuumed around the edges in months. All the vending machines were continually sold out... More

By comparison, I stayed at the Country Inn and Suites in Calabasas (about 40 minutes South) and much nicer (see my review). Rooms are tired and need to be updated. Clean but not sparkling. Bed was decent, and I slept OK, but as per others have said, there is a train that goes by so if you are a light... More

All the seniors that complain about paper/styrofoam plates or freeway noise need to bring their own plates and earplugs. Oh but wait, why pick a hotel next to a freeway if you want to be away from traffic? Hhmmm - senility. My family goes to Ventura annually for the Highland Games in October. This place offers great rates (discounted for... More

Much nicer than I expected after reading a few negative reviews. The hotel was spotless and the rooms were very large with comfortable beds. The breakfast was buffet style and was very good. Staff was helpful and friendly. Be prepared for freeway noise when at the pool. If you are a light sleeper you should request the mountain side which... More

This is an old, dated property that has seen better days. The elevator squeaks and shudders; the ancient microwaves had real BELLS on them--haven't seen those in 20+ years; everything is "shopworn". Our window looked out on a railroad trestle, the 101 freeway, and waaaay off in the distance is the ocean. The NOISE of the freeway and train-crossing horns... More
