This hotel is in need of serious upgrades . The room was big but we never felt comfortable because it's outdated and dirty and dingy . I wouldn't walk around without socks and kept my clothes off the floor. It also looks like someone tried to break into the bathroom at one time and the installed bar to keep the... More

Large, clean room with king bed and sofa sleeper. Ours (352) had great view of harbor and marina. Two different pillow types (Soft and Firm). Very clean bathroom. Helpful and friendly front desk staff (Rosemary and Sonja). Pay parking ($10+tax/day) for self-park open lot. Restaurant, bar, and exercise room in 4-Seasons hotel next door accessible by walkway over street. Computer... More

This hotel offers balcony rooms over looking the marina if you stay on the back side. A fairly good spread for breakfast. I stayed here as my motorcycle club stayed in the Four points by Sheraton which is directly next door.

Stayed here May 2015 primarily for a business trip, but with a weekend extension for pleasure. Good sized, comfortable room with great view over marina. Staff were friendly and standard of housekeeping was good. Good selection of restaurants a pleasant 15-20 minute walk away around the marina. My only negative comment would be that there is no bar or restaurant... More

This is my favorite hotel in the area. The rates are reasonable, it is quiet, and you get a view of the harbor and the sunset from your balcony (ask for a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor). There is also a breakfast with several options that comes with the price of the room. Santa Barbara is half an... More

The employees of this Holiday Inn Express do make a difference by their friendly helpfulness. The property is walking distance (a long stroll through the marina along the waterfront) to the harbor shops and restaurants. The fitness center shown is not on site but you must walk outside to the neighboring hotel to use it. So instead, walk down to... More

It was comfortable and basic hotel, could come again. We stayed there 1 night during the road trip from San Diego to San Francisco 2010. Room was clean and all in it what we expected. Anything to say about breakfast, we left so early. Parking was easy and lot of places to park.

My husband and I, along with 2 other couples, spent 2 nights here to access the harbor boats to Channel Islands National Park. Is well located, just s 3-4 minute drive. Views of the Harbor are nice, as well. We had a ground floor room, so nice large windows, but no balcony as on higher floors. There was a nice... More

This property did not wow me, but the view of the marina and sunset were very nice. My king room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The quality of the amenities was mediocre at best. Very springy bed and cheap pillows, but the sea breeze and the sound of the sea lions put me quickly to sleep! The property definitely... More

We spent a night here on vacation. Enjoyed the shopping and the restaurants in the Ventura Harbor area. The hotel was fresh and clean and the staff was pleasant and helpful. The room had plenty of space and was well lit with accessible outlets. We would stay here again.
