What an unexpectedly positive experience we had at this neat hotel in Ventura. Who would expect marble sink countertops, flat screen TVs and a full breakfast, including delicious waffles, along with great service at an unpresuming place like this. But it was excellent from beginning to end. Thank you Carlos and the entire staff for making our stopover so great.... More

I would NOT stay here. Across the street is a homeless park. We were excited to have a park for our 2.5 year old to stay at. We get there and there are homeless people laying all over the place. One guy actually knocked out another guy in a fight! DO NOT STAY here if you want safety for yourself... More

Clean rooms and pool area and loved the mattresses. Much better than the resort we stayed at for four days. Thank you! We will return when we come back to Ventura. Convenient! AND friendly. Wish we could've stayed until breakfast!

This motel is one of my favorite places to be. I take my mom, who is 83, and we have a great visit every time. The rooms are spotless and tasteful, the beds comfortable, the pillows abundant and soft. The receptionists are helpful and friendly; there is tea and coffee practically 24/7 in the lobby; breakfast is copies and included.... More

So I had to go to Santa Paula but wasn't thrilled with the choices. Good ol' Ventura has the places to stay...if only I didn't move out 7 years ago. I was shocked to get the BW, as I was thinking I was going to get the Country Inn next door. While my room was practically right at the railroad... More

This hotel is located near the Pacific and in the heart of downtown Ventura. Handy to many attractions and a good value for the money. The buffet breakfast is above average and the rooms are well appointed with comfortable bed.

We don't usually stay at best westerns as we have had problems with noise. That said, this was a positive experience and we will stay there again. The senior rate was the best rate. It's just a few blocks to town

We stayed here for our anniversary. We liked the hotel the first day until this happened that ruined the whole thing. My kid locked the bathroom door. I called the front desk, she said she'll send the maintenance guys. Waited for 10 minutes and called again. Now she said they're on break (she should've called to notify). Waited again for... More
