This INN houses street people. These residents leave their doors open and party outside on balcony. They leave empty beer bottles and cigarette ashtrays outside of their rooms. We asked for a designated non-smoking room. The room smelled of cigarettes. The only ventilated was an oscillating floor fan. There was no hot water after one shower. Towels were like sandpaper....

Stayed here for 3 nights with the family and enjoyed the stay but unfortunately the area is not too safe at night. There were too many "kids" hanging out at the liquor store across the inn drinking and smoking (not cigarettes) and being loud. Our room was pretty clean but the fixtures definitely need to be replaced. The bathroom was... More

My husband and I stayed in room 212. A king non smoking room. They have no a.c. so we had to open the Windows for ventilation. No screens on the window and located at the smoking tables. A fan is provided which draws in the smoke from the multiple. Construction workers who stand right outside the window smoking until 2am... More

My wife and I booked this hotel because we needed to make a quick two-day trip to Ventura. We have always stayed at the Inn on the Beach on Seward Ave., but because we didn’t plan ahead, it was booked. We have always liked the atmosphere at the beach on Seaward, restaurants, beach, etc., so we looked for an alternative... More

My wife's mother passed away and due to Ventura having a Johnny Cash festival hotel space was very limited. I ran across the website for Shores Inn and saw some initially favorable reviews so out of pure necessity we booked on-line and prepaid three nights for a king bed room. When we arrived the room had a queen bed in... More

I enjoyed staying there , great location, price was ok. The linens had a funny smell not sure they get changed everyday. A couple of blocks to the beach. Employees (Trevor I believe was his name) very friendly, and ready to help, made me feel at home.

I have never written a bad review before but this one is bad. We were recommended this motel by their sister motel in the hills. We checked in and then 20 minutes later checked out and got our money back. The clientelle that were already staying there were yelling and screaming at each other - using foul and abusive language.... More
