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

Cute little Holiday Inn tucked in the harbor area of Ventura. Hotel was dated, but very clean. Rooms were nice with great view of the marina. Front desk staff was very friendly & helpful with directions to dining & attractions Close to shops & restaurants

We enjoyed our stay. We read previous reviews and these were correct, the hotel is old but they try to keep it clean, the carpet on the hallway is stained, the continental breakfast is good to to start the day and staff are nice. The pool is next door by the four seasons sheraton. The view for the room was... More

We booked a king suite a month ago, when we checked in we were informed that our room had been changed to a queen suite, and we were given a 10.00 discount. Ok first of all, how do they run out of King rooms when booked in advance. I'm thinking someone with the elite status booked and wanted the king... More

Nice view to the harbor. God value for the money. Pool available at the neighbor hotel, which can be reach by a small path or bridge. Fee for parking. Found a restaurant in the harbor area (2 min. drive) with a lobster offer (Wednesday) and nice views.

Stayed here to be close to the dive boat for an early start next day. The hotel feels very corporate, the elevator is downright scary, the saving grace was the sunset and balcony where you can enjoy take out fish and chips from Adriane's. Staff all very friendly, and an edible hotel breakfast. Great if you have stuff to do... More
