As an older traveler, I found the bathrooms very accessible even though I did not request the handicapped bathroom. The shower had grab rails for safety and an toilet of a comfortable height. These are important not only for us "Boomers" (and older) who are traveling. as well as families traveling with children. The breakfast buffet was very good as... More

I'm in Ventura for business and always stay at this Best Western. The rooms are very well done, always clean and the free internet is great. The location to Main St. is super convenient so you can easily walk to great shops, pubs and restaurants. Even the beach is close by. I've never had an issue while here, but if... More

Your reservation system stated I reserved a Queen Sized bed. The bed was full sized. Queen sized beds are 60 inches wide, six inches wider than a full. You shouldn't make reservations for something that you do not provide I have a Queen sized bed home and this bed was noticeable smaller and less comfortable and cramped.

This hotel, while not fancy, is a good options for families. Affordable and clean. Rooms are newly renovated and the daily breakfast is a plus. The outside is rather 70's but plans are in the works for an update. Stay upstairs toward the front of the building to avoid the train whistle. I only heard it when we were outdoors.... More

Ok.... $200 a night (with taxes) is ridiculous. Thus is an old hotel that needs to be completely redone. We were "lucky" to get a recently remodeled room that was right out of the 80's. Train track is right next to the hotel, so in the middle of the night, it sounds like the train is outside your door. We... More

We stayed here only one night while making our way up the California coast. Location is great. It's close to the downtown area and walking distance to the ocean. We were able to do our laundry and breakfast was the basics. Good stay if only for a night. Floor seemed to leave our feet dirty though.

needed a place south of SanLuis to get back home for high school registration. Easy check-in after midnight. Slept well, no loud noises even though very close to freeway. I know that this hotel is very close to everything you want in Ventura.
