The people we spoke with on the phone prior to our arrival were always very helpful. The location is very nice with the marina adjacent to the hotel. The bedding was not cleaned prior to our arrival and management would not make appropriate amends for this when brought to their attention. We arrived late at night, went straight to bed,... More

We booked a couple nights for business and wanted to be somewhere near Ventura harbor to take in the sites when we could. The hotel is pretty run down and the rooms need an update. The rooms were well sized and the harbor view was quite nice with a balcony that if it were a little warmer we would have... More

This hotel is in an amazing location and you would be suprised its a Holiday Inn Express. The area creates a very bad smell (the harbor), but parking is ample, the area is very quiet as it is off the beaten path. The room was huge and offered more toileties than I have ever seen at a HIE. The staff... More

The goods: This hotel is located right at the harbor. Regular rooms on the second and third floor have private balconies. The harbor view is really nice. Although the suites are bigger, they are located on the first floor and doesn't have an outdoor patio. Free breakfast is always good. Now the bads: Romms are kinda old, carpet is dirty... More

Booked here via the internet while starting on my drive from Anaheim to San Fran. I was unsure of the area but as it turned out it was great. Our room overlooked the harbour, was spacious and very clean. Yes the 'sea smell' and 'farm smell' were there when outside depending on the wind but not a problem inside. It... More

Only stayed for 1 night on the way to LA. Staff were excellent and very friendly. A fair distance from Ventura - we walked to the nearby harbour where there are excellent restaurants and bars. We had a harbour view room which was excellent when you wake up in the morning. Excellent value for money - would definately stay again.

So many different viewpoints on this hotel to date. Let me attempt to put things in perspective. It's easy to reach, easy to park in, easy to get to town and the harborside shops, facilities and restaurants (but preferably with your car or cycle). Forget about the architectural style. What is important is that the staff are great and the... More

This large Holiday Inn Express is pleasant enough, but it's also hard to see what all the raves are about. True, rooms are spacious and have balconies overlooking the very pretty yacht harbor. But this early 1960s building--a strange, blockhouse-like effort attributed to students of Frank Lloyd Wright--also offers long, blustery outdoor hallways and, sorry to say, intermittent odors from...

Check in was quick and easy. Friendly front desk person, gave me a handled paper bag with fruit, granola bar and bottled water then directed me to my room. The room was spacious and clean...it had everything one could need: a microwave, small refrigerator, coffeemaker, hair dryer and iron and ironing board. It had flat screen tv , internet access...
