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

The view of the harbor is incredible from the third floor balcony. You are literally 20 feet away and 20 feet above it. Sunset couldn't have been more spectacular. Here is the butt; in a place with so much potential, you would hope they would put in some elegance to compliment their location. Front door view of active farmland and... More

This HIE is in a nice location on the Ventura Harbor marina, connected to a Sheraton 4 points by a walking bridge overpass. The pool and the restaurant were both over at the Sheraton, so if you want easier convenience to those, stay there, otherwise, HIE patrons can walk across and use them. The HIE did have a breakfast bar... More

I was close to cancelling this reservation based on the negative reviews I had read but I am so glad I kept it. The staff at this hotel were wonderfully and went out of their way to ensure my stay was pleasant including changing my room upon check-in when I found out that the ground floor room did not have...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Ventura Harbor for 2 weeks while my husband did some work at a local hospital. We had requested a harbor view room with a balcony. The first night it wasn't available but the following night we had the room we requested. The property is older. Clean room. Clean bathroom. The first room was... More

We stayed two nights and had a great time. Staff was amazing. We had two rooms and we all said we would come back. Right on the harbor. Really great for a weekend getaway. Even walked over to the Four Points for drinks one night. Very easy and a lot of fun.
