Stayed here for years, but recently the "deferred maintenance" is taking a toll and it is taking on a worn and dreary feeling/look. Plus now charges an extra $10 parking (per vehicle) which is not disclosed when making a reservation on any website... Just another case of gouging. BUT it still is a great location and as long as you... More

I chose this hotel to stay in while at a Gordon Research conference as I wanted to be able to sit on the balcony in the sunshine in the afternoon and see the boats through the glass balcony. It is really one of the best places I can think of to catch up on emails and write - which is... More

Hello doormouse2, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback as we do appreciate all our guests comment. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your time during the Gordon Conference. Also the reason for the disposable cups is for sanitary reasons and is the main reason we don't have normal mugs. More

We found this hotel with Luciano's help and she did a fantastic job of taking care of us for our last minute and late arrival.

Surprised friends in Ventura, last minute, no hotel accommodations. Friends were staying at the Sheraton next door. Unable to get a room at Sheraton (sold out) they recommended their sister property, Holiday Inn Express. My husband and I booked the room, not knowing what to expect. We were both pleasantly surprised -- guest services upgraded us to a King Suite,... More

This was our second stay here. We were only going to stay here on a Tuesday, because we had reservations for Monday at a motel up the coast.

Stayed here for our first trip to Ventura. Excellent view, walking distance to Harbor Village, large clean room, excellent service and amenities. The breakfast was more than what you would expect for an included one, and offered scrambled, cheese-stuffed eggs, biscuits, sausage, bacon, toast, yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, milk, juice, and a variety of pastries. The only downside is the $10... More

This hotel is located right in the Harbor property, so if you like boats or being close to the beach, this hotel is right up your alley. Also, for accessing any part of Ventura, this location makes it easy. Same can be said for the beach part of Oxnard. If you are traveling up/down the coast of CA on the... More
