OK, so it isn't the Ritz, but for the money, we thought this hotel provided very good value. Nice view of the harbor - we enjoyed sitting on our balcony at sunset, looking at the harbor. Beds comfy, room spacious, front desk friendly and helpful. Overall, nicer than we expected.

I reserved a suite for a special occasion and upon arrival was told overbooked. Not happy. When I got my American Express bill I was wrongfully charge to make matters worse. So much for being a preferred member of Holiday Inn.

Compared to hotels we saw in this area, the Holiday Inn Express was nice. Compared to other hotels in other cities, it was worn and needed some TLC on its exterior. But this was where we stayed for two nights recently and we were happily comfortable with it, overall. The location on the pier was excellent. We enjoyed sitting on... More

This is an older hotel and needs some upgrades but our stay there was very pleasant. The room was very large with a hide a bed, located near the beach and many restaurants. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was clean but dated but we had excellent water pressure. I feel it was a bit over priced but considering... More

We stayed for three nights at the Harbor Inn the hotel needs a serious makeover. The rooms where very clean and the bathrooms as well. The ladies at the desk where more than helpful and they advised us where to go. Breakfast is ok but stay away from the powdered eggs,

I made my reservation with the hotel manager directly, because I wanted to stay at this hotel. My son was in a contracted room for a summer program and he was also staying there. After my confirmation, I called the hotel and added a night stay and told them I was arriving late (11pm). When I did arrive, I was... More

The hotel gets a lot of use because of the location - right on the harbor. Our room, hallways and breakfast area were clean. They have the friendliest staff ever. It is a 20-25 minute walk around the harbor to the restaurants, bars and Island Packers (boat to Channel Islands). Great views from the third floor. The place to stay... More

My husband started staying here when he was working in Ventura. He would drive up on Mondays and drive home Fridays. We got to come "visit" on a few weekends and fell in love with this hotel. Right on the marina and great views. Breakfast is delicious as well. Our kids brought their roller blades and (carefully) skated around the... More

The room was very clean and comfortable with great views of the harbor. I had my own little porch with that fantastic view. Very nice/helpful hotel staff and conveniently located for everything you want to do in Ventura. Would have liked a handicapped room with a roll in shower (even though not in a wheelchair) but I made it work... More

We chose this hotel for the convenience of a weekend wedding, not because of the harbor, strictly because it was close to my son's wedding and reception location. Much to my surprise, it couldn't have been a better choice! First of all, the staff was overly accommodating to the wedding party and to the families and out of town guests.... More
