We stayed in Room 104 and it was a nightmare. After we saw the room we realized we paid too much. There was no place to hang our clothes, no cups, there was black mold in the bathroom, we had to ask for towels, the sheets were thin as tissue paper, there was no toilet paper holder, and no racks...

we got there at 2 am and the lady was nice enough to wait for us...the young man in the morning was very nice. However, this motel has great potential and yet is runned down...is so closed to the ocean, they can upgrade the room and get so much more for what we paid. I worked in a very nice... More

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.
