Yes, it's old. Yes, some parts of it are a bit run-down. Yes, their upgrades clash a bit with the older decor (gas fireplaces and a marble and glass shower in the same room with cabbage rose wallpaper and cabbage rose carpeting). If peeling wallpaper in the halls is going to put your OCD in full gear, this isn't the... More

My husband and I stayed one night. It was an impromptu trip and wanted someplace on the beach yet close to home. Reviews on other advisor sites were not helpful. Pro (THE ONLY "PRO"): The view. You can't beat it. Gorgeous sunset. Balcony was rusted and unsightly, but that didn't stop us from kicking back with a couple beers and... More

Subject: Inn on the Beach Location: Ventura, California, United States, North America Title: Gorgeous location, the hotel has not been cared for. Sad ID#: 246887075 We last stayed here about ten years ago. I don't think this is still AAA approved even though their logo is still on the sign. The location is fantastic, and if you get a room...

We come here at least twice a year foe the last seven years. Steve and Jay are the two main reasons! With their knowledge of the the locale and things to do, you get the locals perspective of what to do! They feel like family, and we miss them.....

This hotel is old old old... Rooms are a throw back to the 80's... Wall paper, Victorian antiques, gas fireplaces... dusty.. Old... BUT.. I love this place. Stayed several times and will stay again.. Right on the beach, beds are new and clean, staff is kind and helpful. Crazy romantic! The ONLY place in Ventura that is on the beach.... More

I read all the reviews below and I agree with them all... Sounds weird but it's the truth. To begin with, it is the only hotel on the beach, I mean right on the beach, in the area, it is why I chose it. The building is old, charming and the view from the 3rd floor is to die for,... More

My wife and I stay for an anniversary night away. Great location a beautiful sunset. We weren't expecting much but this place is in serious need of help. Broken headboard, USB power unit that was completely shattered and inoperative still sitting on the desk, carpet with foot worn paths and of course the ants. I called the lobby but never... More

We went to this hotel 14 years ago during my SO and I first vacation together. Wow it has changed for the worse. No AC, dirty rooms and poor service, i.e. no extra pillows, fans, etc. One positive, they seem to be doing some renovation, the bathrooms are nicer but the hotel is very subpar for the amount they are...

The rooms are cozy, clean, and the bed comfortable. Stay on the 2nd or 3rd floor to get a great unobstructed view of the beach. Sit on the balcony or walk a few feet to the beach to watch the sunset over the ocean. This is a great hotel for a quick weekend getaway with your love. The price is... More

We were just driving up the coast, no real destination in mind, when we stumbled across this place right on the beach. Sure it's a little old and run-down - and the hot water was off on the morning we left! But the people were so lovely and friendly, and the location is perfect! Right on the waters edge, and...
