3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I felt like I paid too much for a one night stay. The bed was ok....room was clean...very basic...dated with some renovations done. But there was an old, musky smell. Breakfast was ok but nowhere to sit....plus parking was extra $10 a day....really????

Positives- The front desk staff and all the staff were extremely friendly. The room was spacious with a nice view of the marina and a nice balcony. The breakfast is better than most similar hotels. Negatives- Instead of having a bathroom fan, they have a vented window out to the external hallway. So, anyone in the hallway will be able... More

I stayed at the HIE as a base for visiting the Channel Islands. Clean rooms, gorgeous views and friendly staff. The hot breakfast was a plus . I would like to see better access to the pool. You have to go next door for the hot tub and pool. Will stay there again on my next trip to Ventura.

This hotel has a great location if you want to do activities in the harbor. The hotel was very nice, with a nice view of the harbor. The staff was very friendly and greeted us every time we walked in the door. The breakfast was really good, and varied from day to day. I loved that they had chobani yogurt,... More

This is your typical Holiday Inn with one big difference: it overlooks spectacular Ventura Harbor which is filled with hundreds of sailboats. If you are taking the ferry to Channel Islands National Park, you can't beat this location. The ferry dock is about 1/2 mile away (a little far for a walk, and there is plenty of parking at the...

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend. Everything was great, from the girl who greeted us the evening we arrived (don't remember her name, but she was very enthusiastic) until we checked out. The beds, the sheets, towels, breakfast, view, everything was great. My only complaint --- I made the reservation and (thought) I paid for this room... More

I just returned home from a 9 day stay at this hotel. The only negative I could find was that it was just a bit dated, but it was very well-maintained and clean. The staff was courteous and helpful. The free breakfast buffet was good. The wifi was adequate for business use, and the tv had more channels than I... More

Had 2 nights here in April 2014. Room 357 with comfy king bed, sofabed, large wardrobe, microwave & refridgerator, with balcony. First impressions: Room had a slight musty odour when we entered, however, after opening the balcony and letting in some fresh air this soon cleared. The room was large, clean and comfy other than that. Bathroom: Good, clean facilities... More

We stayed here as this was the best location for our next days journey to The Channel Island National Park. Our room overlooked the Marina and had a small cozy balcony to sit out on to watch the sunset. The staff was helpful and attentive. The room was clean and comfortable. I find the parking fee a bit odd. I... More
