It was easy to overlook the piles of dust, dirt, bugs flying around the lobby, and having to wear flip flops to walk on the carpet in the room in exchange for the view of the Pacific ocean. This place is in desperate need of Hotel Impossible for a number of reasons. I can go on for ever but let... More

What a great location! Rite on the beach in Ventura You could not get a better view of the ocean and get any closer to the beach. The only problem is that the hotel needs a major facelift. The rooms are a decent size, but the decor needs a major upgrade as do the bathrooms. The bed linens and towels... More

I like this place. The negative comments about being a bit worn are true. There are a lot of details that catch the eye that have needed attention for a long time. BUT, THE VIEW!!! All rooms have a balcony or patio right on the beach. After five minutes looking across the sand to the surf, one forgets about the... More

My husband and I wanted a quick getaway out of Los Angeles. Most beach locations are either distant or very pricey or both. The location of this hotel can't be beat. Nice beach, nearby restaurants, comfortable bed. The place is a touch worn and there is a bit of a fusty odor around the lobby, (he beach is tough on... More

I loved this place it was absolutely beautiful, my girls an I were at six flags during the day, I should had stayed there longer. There are some local bums and drunks that hangout by the beach but they were mostly minding their own.

So my husband booked this room as a Valentine/Birthday surprise for me. He was a bit concerned by a few of the negative(ish) reviews about the place being run down, etc. but the negative remarks were for stuff that doesn't matter much to us so he stuck with the reservation. We are both SO GLAD that he did. We love... More

Starting with the good, this property has an excellent beachfront location, steps away from a number of restaurants. Parking is free and there is a cold continental breakfast. On to the bad, our room was in a severe state of disrepair. The list is pretty long but the main issues were in the washroom including a ghastly water damaged ceiling... More

Stayed one night on our way through Ventura. Did not check reviews, our mistake. Front desk was friendly & welcoming. Rate was around $110 plus tax. Hotel is right on beach, if you must stay here I recommend second or third floor as there is no view from first floor. Sand build up & dirty glass are in the view.... More

We booked in for 1 night, as we were too tired to look elsewhere. The position was nice, but the cleanliness was not good. The breakfast room was very grubby, and at the price , to me it represents poor value. The room was comfortable enough, but being charitable...the room was tired. Good restaurants nearby.

I thought it would be worth it to have a place ON the beach. It would have been SO MUCH BETTER to walk a block to the beach and stay at a nice place for the same price It was a DIRTY, RUN DOWN, place. First the "manager guy" has such bad nail fungus...on all his fingernails that what bits... More
