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

I called the hotel directly to make a reservation and was told I would get a King bed in an accessible room on the 3rd floor. I have medical issues and wanted a room with a tub seat. My boyfriend was visiting from out of state and I was looking forward to the stay. At check in I was told... 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

This hotel seems like a hidden Gem. My husband and I were upgraded to a sweet. We had a huge veranda a view of the harbor where we were able to watch a few sea lions play. The room is a little dated but clean and well cared for. We were only a short walk away from Island Packers the... More

We stayed just one night in a delightfully large and well-equipped room with a comfortable bed, microwave, fridge and wet bar. The bathroom featured a square tube with a corner seat and a toilet with the double flush system that I've only seen in Europe until now. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of many different dishes and first rate... More
