I love this location! There are many restaurants and shops within a half mile walk. A little farther and you a tree at the beach, perfect to watch sunset after a long day working. The rooms are a little tired, but still comfortable and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful when there are (the occasional and inevitable) issues. I... More

It was Thurston's Birthday and I was taking him to dinner, so wanted to stay somewhere close by in case we had some drinks. Stayed in an ocean front room with patio. Very nice and clean room and awesome patio. It was very relaxing and we could hear the waves and smell the ocean! Will stay here again. Great location... More

We arrived very late at night after a full day, and were tired, so that might color my review. There is one elevator, and it's pretty small, but we could fit the bag cart and our family of four. The room is a basically clean, decent hotel room. Not a lot of frills - the blackout curtains in the room... More

Very clean hotel and excellent staff service. The view of the marina was amazing and the location of the hotel is close to everything. The free breakfast was great with pancakes, omelet, oatmeal, fruits, yogurt, bagels, etc. There was also free wi-fi and beds were comfortable. The only downside was the $10 charge for parking and fee if early check-out.... More

There was nothing to fault this hotel, where we stayed for one night on our tour. The hotel is down by the beach area with a short walk up into the town centre. We really liked the atmosphere in Ventura and I would have liked to stay longer - good bars and good restaurants. The hotel staff reflected this attitude;... More

We were to board a boat in Ventura Harbor the next morning, so we decided to arrive the day before and stay in a hotel close by. I chose to make arrangements through TripAdvisor. TripAdvisor subbed my reservation to another travel service who got our travel dates wrong so that when we arrived, as planned, Holiday Inn Express was not... More

I stayed here last year on a overnight trip and all my needs were met and overall the stay is very satisfactory. The rooms were clean, the property is well kept, and the staff is friendly and professional. Parking is plentiful and the location is walking distance from the beach, piers and a very short drive from the naval base.... More

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.
