This was a spur-of-the-moment, one-night stay to be able to meet family for dinner to celebrate a 60th birthday. This was a very clean and comfortable place to stay. We weren't staying to visit any of the local sites, so can't comment on that or their nearness to any locations.

This BW hotel is nicely appointed. The property location is excellent, easy to the main roads, and the town of Ventura, plus within walking distance of the beach via a pedestrian overpass so you don't have to contend with traffic and freeway. The room we stayed in had upgraded to very nice, modern, large rectangular tiles in the bath and... More

Greetings stonecroft99- Its wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. It is true that the train is part of our lives here, and well, was here long before us. It does not bother most. We appreciate your review and enjoyed it. Thank you again for sharing! More

Very pleased with room. It was clean, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom looked recently upgraded. Buffet breakfast is better than most I've tasted. Some reviewers have mentioned train noise. The tracks are close by but I didn't hear anything after 11pm. Walkable to the downtown area. For beer tasters, there is a great place a half block down... More

We were in Ventura for a few days to attend a concert at The Majestic Theatre and just generally relax. The Best Western proved to be a good central location for that. It is a short walk to both the theatre and the Ventura Pier that comes complete with beach and ocean so it was a wonderful choice. The hotel... More

We were looking for a nice place close to the beach and we found it! Not a bad price at all for the 2 nights we had. The place was clean, has a pool and (small) hot tub. Complimentary breakfast wasn't amazing but was free and there! I'd recommend this place for a quick beach trip.

Booked a room and paid fully online for a 2 bedroom room (extra costs for 2 beds). When I arrived on a Wednesday, an hour after check in time, I was told that all the 2 bedroom rooms were gone. I was then told I could pay an extra $20.00 a night for a cot. Seeing as I was traveling... More

Unfortunately, when you book a prepaid reservation with a third party company it limits us to making modifications or even canceling your reservation in some instances. Such changes need to be made through the company you booked and paid for... More

I have been here twice. The first time we got a good deal on a kin size room and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The facilities were clean and the bed was super comfy, the breakfast was delicious and the customer service was amazing - especially Leticia at the front desk!

We stayed here one night recently and had a fine experience. Like an earlier reviewer, we also noticed the homeless in the city park across the street, but did not feel threatened in any way. Upon entering our room we found an older room with several nice updates. I actually liked the room layout and the laminate flooring instead of... More

Ventura is always on my preferred list of cities in California. This motel is smack dab in middle of the downtown area; within 1/2 mile of Hwy 101 and walking distance to the beach. We arrived in the evening. I is a 2 story motel. The lobby was clean and neat. Check in quick. Parking lot small, but, parking also... More

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
