I stayed in this hotel for one night for business. I arrived late after flying from SFO to LAX and then driving up so it was dark when I arrived. I still appreciated the large balcony that evening. However, I was pleasantly surprised in the morning when I realized what a great location/view of the harbor I had. The room... More

A very good HI Express with spacious and quiet rooms and ample parking space. It is situated by the marina with its restaurants and shopping. Professional service, and the continental breakfast included was slightly better than in other HI Express I stayed in on this trip.

This is an older property. Clean and serviceable, and has a great view of Ventua Harbor, walking distance to some great restaurants. Motorcycle-friendly parking (no pay!). Best part was the desk clerk named Marta. What a wonderful, bubbly, friendly peronality! She should be the face of this hotel. She is also very pretty, so all around represents this place well....

Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights attending a conference. The staff was very nice and efficient at check-in, despite of a a lot of people arriving at the same time. It stayed like that throughout our stay, both the staff of the HIE as well as of the sister property FourPoints Sheraton. I stayed in a double room with... More

THE STAFF: I recently spent the weekend here for a wedding that was held at the Mandalay resort. I obviously saved a lot by choosing HIE, but was still close enough to be near the wedding. The staff was excellent! The two girls working check-in on Friday were very busy, but very helpful to everyone. Carly looked up a chinese... More

They charge you $11 to park in a wide open, unguarded, uncovered lot. Just a money grab, no benefit to you. Apparently if you pay extra you get a room overlooking the harbor. If not, you get a view of a stucco wall. The air smells like a sewage treatment plant is operating at full blast nearby. The fitness room... More

Great place to stay. Rooms where very clean. We had a great view of the harbor. Marta, who checked us in, was extremely nice. Check-in was quick, Marta made sure of it. Room was a good size. Very close to the beach and shops.

We stayed here for a couple's retreat. I can't say enough nice things about the staff. We got there really early for our event and the lovely woman who checked us in (I wish I could remember her name), not only let us check in early since our room was available, she offered to let us have breakfast right before...

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
