I had a very peaceful night of sleep to say the least. My arrival was quit early so I checked out the nearby channel island beach area which was lovely and relaxing. Although my reservation was last minute my check in process was a breeze. The gentleman at the front was very pleasant and helpful. I was able to ask... More

I booked this room over the phone for my sister's wedding. I was never told that the hotel welcomed pets as guests. Our room smelled like animals had done their "business" there. My husband has pet allergies. I was totally grossed out thinking that animals had probably slept in the very bed we were sleeping in. It smelled so bad... More

The plus of this hotel was it's location. But the reviews I'd read were misleading, so I wanted to contribute my own now that I've stayed there for several days. The staff was very friendly. The cost for the stay was relatively low, but our room was extremely run down, smelled stale and moldy, and needs updating. At check-in, they... More

Reminded me of a formerly nice hotel that now suffers from lack of upkeep. The first thing that annoyed me was the $10 per day charge for parking! There's no other choice -- no street parking, nothing at all nearby. I guess I'd understand if it was a garage in an urban area, but this was just a big open... More

Very good hotel with standard Holiday Inn Express breakfast with wonderful breakfast staff. Very relaxing. The hotel staff was super. Didn't realize they had an airport shuttle. No surprises which was nice. Views overlooking the harbor were beautiful from our balcony. The room was clean and spacious. Will stay hear next time we are in Ventura. The harbor shops near... More

We had our second visit for eleven days at the end of September. Again we were very satisfied with the hotel - our clean spacious room with balcony overlooking the harbour, the large clean comfortable bed and the very helpful staff all helped to make our stay a pleasure. The reception staff, particularly Mae and Marta were great, Mae spending... More

My wife and I stayed over the Halloween weekend while visiting friends in the area. The front desk staff were exceptional, Carley and one other gal, I don't remember her name. Both excellent employees that the management can be proud of. Our room was a downstairs King Suite. The room was quite large, with a separate step down living room... More

Beautiful location by the Ventura Marina. Quiet rooms, very spacious, comfortable, lots of towels, comfortable bed. Very ample free breakfast -- eggs, bacon, sausages, breads, pancakes, hardboiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, cereals, coffee, juices. Our room had a nice view of the sailboats in the marina, with a small balcony and 2 chairs to sit outside. The building overall is older... More

Having read some of the negative reviews on this site, I was leery about staying here. My fears were unwarranted. Concerns about privacy in the bathroom are unwarranted unless you have a very deep seated fear of peeping toms looking through pinhole cracks in slotted windows. Someone would have to be very bold to stand in a public place and... More
