We had a scheduled trip to Channel Islands out of Ventura Harbor, so for convenience we stayed here. The hotel is out-dated, but clean. I believe all rooms have balcony views of the harbor. The walls are very thin. If you are a light sleeper like myself, you will hear every step in the hall, steps upstairs, noise from harbor,... More

My family and I had stayed in this same hotel in four consecutive years. It seems like when we look for a great hotel with a affordable price and great service, we always think first of this hotel. Marta a swear the phone when I inquired about a room and was so helpful that she found me two rooms connected... More

I had to stay here with my son's team as a chaperone and was pleasantly surprised. The locations is lovely as all the rooms have views of the harbor. There is a good complimentary breakfast with eggs, yogurt, pancakes, cereal, etc. The rooms were large and beds were comfortable. The rooms are dated and have a stale smell but that... More

Ground floor suite/king bed/non smoking/harbor (Marina) view. Livingroom with tv, sofa, chair and 4 tables. Bedroom had comfortable king bed, pillows not so much, good sheets and tv. Plenty of drawer space but closet was a bit small with full size ironing board there too. At least a dozen wood hangers. Large bathroom with large Jacuzzi bathtub and separate shower/typical...

The reservationist told us it was a new hotel, not an old one, newly acquired. We were surprised that the room needed updating plus needed a clean a/c. I would not stay there again unless it were updated. If you go, ask for a harbor view. It is a pleasant walk around the harbor to see the boats docked there... More

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
