Our Overall experience was very pleasant. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was one of the largest standard rooms I have stayed in. Everything about our stay was great. The location to the beach and dining was excellent. The free breakfast was also good. I would recommend this location to anyone who wants easy, close access to... More

This hotel is strangely located in front of a freeway and railroad tracks and tucked away behind the main street (Thompson Blvd). It's quite hidden. Still, it's got a comfy bed and large room size. The price is much lower for the value. Full breakfast, couch, large bed, and nice design. The only thing that I could say that was... More

Best warm breakfast! It was so tasty!!! I'd stay here next time just to get the breakfast. The room was outdated to look at, but the bed was cozy. Warm showers. Fridge in room. We heard very little outside noise, not sure what the other reviews are talking about with this issue - maybe they had the slider door open?... More

All staff members were very welcoming and professional. Room was extremely comfortable. Very good dining establishments within walking distance from hotel. Very close to beaches and Ventura fairgrounds.

Greeted by courteous staff. O.K. Hotel is a little out dated. How ever. Large rooms which were well appointed and clean. Fridge and microwave supplied. Walking distance to waterfront and town. Managers special in the evening, couple of munchies and drinks, nice touch. Breakfast in the morning was cooked and had the extras, fruit cereal, juices etc etc.For this price... More

We appreciated finding a hotel offering a full breakfast, spacious and comfortable room which was very clean, and a large TV, refrigerator and microwave - which was also very affordable. We will be coming to Ventura often and plan to return to the Country Inns and Suites.

It is cost-effective but not worth a poor night's sleep. The room temperature fluctuated greatly and I saw mold in the shower. The water also smelled bad. The jacuzzi lights would go on and off at night. The breakfast was not bad; I don;t recommend the bacon.

I have no complaints about the hotel. It was clean, quiet and very close to beach. Was walking distance to may things beach, food ect. They are to the minute on the breakfast time. We had only 7 minutes before they closed and they were closing down right at 7 minutes.

This hotel is the perfect hideaway in Ventura. It's set back away from Main street but within walking distance. It was clean, it was nice, the breakfast wasn't something to write home about but it wasn't bad, at least they had a breakfast. Overall, I think this is a great hotel to stay. It's not exactly beach front, but you... More

Conveniently located, large clean rooms, great staff. Would definitely recommend to others. This was my second time staying in the facility and plan to stay again in the future. Glad it's a no smoking facility. Only 2 blocks from the beach and about 2-3 blocks from the main section of the town which has many restaurants and a large variety... More
