We stayed for 3 nights starting Nov. 17. Our room was quite large with a working gas fireplace. The decor was not memorable but the bed and other pieces of furniture were comfortable. We were not bothered by the freeway noise or the sound of the railroad trains. The free breakfast was good for this type of food. The biggest... More

Stayed here for one night on a trip up the coast. Room was good sized & clean, stayed on the side of the building away from the building and noise was not an issue. Full breakfast in the morning was a nice way to start the day.

My fiancee and I stayed here for a night on the way up the coast, and were quite impressed! The price was incredibly reasonable (we stayed here becuase it was a third the cost of a comparable hotel in Santa Barbara), and the positives far outweighed the negatives. Here's a quick rundown: Pros: -Huge room -refrigerator in room -microwave -free... More

Huge room, beautifully decorated. Very high quality bed. Quality all the way. Only complaint--complimentary breakfast ends at 9:30 AM!! On vacation, I'm never up, dressed and ready for breakfast before 9:30. That was disappointing.

My first time at this hotel, and it was an overall good experience. They are right off the interstate, so the location is good and bad. One side faces the interstate so if your room is on that side you may not like it. Luckily mine was not. They have free happy hour in the afternoon and the rooms looked... More

My family and I stayed in Ventura for 5 days. Per the advice of earlier reviewers, we requested a room in the front of the hotel, away from the train tracks. The room was furnished with a microwave and a mini-fridge. there is a business center in the lobby; there's a 15 minute limit. There is an outdoor pool and... More

Staff was not accommodating. Whirlpool in room didn't work. Rat seen crawling down wall outside window. Cleanliness was sub par. By far, the worst hotel I've stayed in.

My overall impression was one of relatively low quality; more of a value hotel than a quality hotel. The rooms were actually pretty nice, with large spaces and a very comfortable bed, but services were sub-standard, and the hotel felt old and run down. Examples of services I didn't like: Internet (while complementary) was slower than dial-up; there was no... More

Country Inn and Suites was a nice and comfortable place to stay. I spent one night here when I visited the Channel Islands, Mission San Buenaventura and the Ventura Pier. The rooms were spacious and walking distance to the historical Ventura Pier. Parking was good and breakfast was good. The only disappointment I had was the fact they didn't have... More

I've stayed there for about the last ten years. The staff is very friendly and willing to help with any questions or concerns. The rooms are quiet and clean. The new decorating and furniture is beautiful. It's within walking distance of the ocean and many other spots to visit . I would never consider staying any where else in Ventura.
