My husband and I stayed at the Inn for two nights in January. We had stayed there about 10 years previously and all the rooms were freshly decorated with flowered wallpaper and tile fireplaces in the corner. The room was right on the beachfront with a small patio. It was very cozy and romantic. However, it appears nothing has been... More

Anyone interested in this establishment will find reviews are all over the place. You love it or hate it. Well I happen to love it. There is not a better location to be found and it is a bargain for the price. Like the other reviews, if a little peeling wallpaper and imperfect finishes are going to bother you, go... More

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.....

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

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...
