Reviews were mixed on this property, so wasn't sure what to expect. Older property, but well maintained. The area is littered with lovely old homes from the 1900's. Warm inviting lobby with large fireplace and chairs. Coffee and tea available at all times in the lobby and in the spacious hospitality room. Full breakfast bar in a.m. Fruit and wine... More

The property is older but well kept up. Rooms are good size, clean, comfortable. Open lobby with adjacent breakfast/happy hour area. Free, generous happy hour, and great free breakfast. Would definitely stay there again. Joe March 10-11, 2013

The hotel was in a great location, although there's a freeway structure between the inn and the beach. You can walk to downtown restaurants. The decor is a bit tired, but the rooms are large. Great hot breakfast provided!

This is definitely an older hotel, but the rooms were fine. They've updated the TVs, so good quality there. What made this place worth writing a review about was the excellent service. Jackie who served at the evening happy hour went above and beyond to make us comfortable and happy. Breakfast the next morning was equally good and we were... More

First of all the room was clean and comfortable. It needed some tlc, but overall it wasn't bad. The people working there were friendly as well. If you're on a budget and you get a good price, don't be afraid to stay here. It's also close to downtown and the 101. My room had a highway/ocean view. On the flip... More

Rooms were somewhat updated, bathroom was not. Old, and fairly dirty. Breakfast was ok but the dining chairs were so dirty I hardly dared to sit on them. Pool area is loud right next to the freeway. Overall an ok hotel if your just staying the night and leaving early. Just don't expect much.

Attention everyone! Do not allow Country Inn & Suites by Carlton Ventura to assign you to room 226! My guess is they give it automatically to anyone who pre-pays! I though it was odd that the two beds were scrunched onto the far left side of the room and the left side corner was entirely bare of any furniture. It... More

It was a pleasure to open the door for the first time and see a big, clean room. Although we didn't need two queen sized beds, we got them and a comfortable recliner. The room was modern and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were perfect for a good night's sleep. The breakfast was very good,... More
