On arrival late one evening the front desk Reservations Rep. was friendly, and caring. She asked about my trip and even recommended places to eat. I was quite impressed with her level of professionalism. She knew the area, the attractions, eateries and I believe that her level of service played a part in my decision to stay an extra day/night.... More

This was a clean, well-kept, quiet hotel with comfortable beds. Decent but very standard breakfast. Very convenient to the 101, midway for our usual drive down the 101. Nicest part of the stay was a pre-dawn run that took me over the freeway overpass (that's a pretty strange experience) and out onto the Ventura pier, a classic old wooden wharf.... More

I wouldnt consider this hotel for a future stay. The hotel was extremely expensive for the service provided. The a/c unit which was 5 1/2 feet up the wall didnt function properly. I was up all night with due to the terrible noise it made. The continental breakfast was terrible too,except for the fresh fruit.

A bit older hotel but was very pleased. Rooms clean and the bed was very comfortable. Train tracks near by but didn't keep us awake. Great location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Receptionist said they are starting renovations in December. I would stay here again

it is a Motel, very old, poor parking, bugs in the room, with the most unfriendly staff in the industry. Train tracks border the location for additional noise as it is also near a highway. Front desk staff both day and night have absolutely no customer service skills what so ever.

Great place to stay. Hotel doesn't look like much from outside but rooms are recently remodeled and very clean. Beds are very comfortable and staff very friendly also. Wireless service is very slow, wound uo not using it most of the time. Cant blame it on to many users because Monday thru Thursday hotel was only 1/3 full and it... More

Stayed here for one night prior to taking Island Packers early morning cruise to Santa Cruz island. Appears thus hotel is a blend of 1970s style with some modern upgrades. The exterior looks old and not especially inviting whereas some upgrades inside the rooms are modern and nice, especially the bathroom. There is no central air conditioning; Instead are noisy,...

Hey Christoph91354! Thank you for the awesome review and feedback! We have remodeled the inside of all our rooms and plan on an exterior upgrade in the year to come. That includes installation of 20 split pack air conditioning units which are extremely quiet. We hope that you might come visit us again and see what's new!! More

Stayed here for 1 night during a 3 week trip around California. Hotel is up to the usual BW standards and the included breakfast was very good. But there is a freeway and railway track right behind and the room shook every time a train went past. This would probably be avoided in the rooms at the front close to... More
