We had two weeks at the Holiday Inn Express at Ventura Harbour Sept/Oct and were very satisfied with the hotel. Our room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the marina and was spacious with a large comfortable bed, fridge and microwave. It was clean and the linen was changed frequently. The breakfast was basic - I wasn't too keen on... More

Great, clean, scenic, and reasonably priced place to stay in Ventura, Channel Islands area. Service and check-in was easy, breezy and my harbor view room was perfect at sunset and sunrise. Easy stroll to the Harbor Village where there are many shops, restaurants, ice cream and pizza stops, and other local finds. Highly recommend Andria's Seafood Restaurant (casual but outstanding!)...

We booked a king suite, and were very impressed by the room and view! Pro's: we could see the gorgeous sunset right from our room, super comfy bed and pillows, huge tub with jacuzzi jets, in addition to a separate shower with multi-setting showerhead. It had a kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave, even pots and pans for using on the... More

Nice at the harbor location. Older hotel but spacious room, very clesn and the staff is curteous. Five minute walk to a various variety of dining locations. Will stay here again if the need arises. Parking is an additional cost on your hotel bill.

My problem with this hotel began immediately. The check-in form had a box I had to initial requiring a payment of $75 a night for checking out early. It would have been okay had I been told that at the time I made my reservation but I hate these surprises at check-in and check out. This was our vacation and... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, Ventura Harbor for two nights recently on business. We have stayed here several times before over the years and have found the hotel to be nicely located right on the harbor with nice views of the boats and the walkways around the harbor. The best rooms have harbor views (not all do) and... More
