We stayed here for a second time on the return trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The first time we stayed we were so impressed by the staff that we decided to stay again and we were not disappointed. Ventura is a lovely little town with lots of eating places for all tastes and a beach and pier.

Easy-on, easy-off of the 101 freeway, about 3 blocks from downtown, and only a block from the best tacos I've ever tasted (Spencer Makenzie Fish house) - the rooms are clean and have both a microwave and a fridge. Full breakfast in the morning makes this an especially good deal; swimming pool is kept clean.

This is the fourth time in the last couple of years my husband and I have stayed at his hotel, and it has yet to disappoint us. Rooms are always spotless, staff is helpful and friendly, and the rates are good for what you get. The only issue I have are the grounds are a bit weary looking and could... More

Check in went well with nice, friendly staff keen to point out where to "sightsee" in Ventura and supply us with a map. The room was very pleasant and cleaned nicely every day and, nice to see bathroom amenities replaced every day. A very acceptable "eat as much as you like" breakfast, a pleasant relaxing area by the poll all... More

This hotel is a find, as is the town of Ventura. The staff are friendly and can not do enough for you, from check in to check out the whole experience was enjoyable, if you stay here take a walk to the pier before breakfast, its great.

Great service, friendly, helpful, responsive staff, proximity to good restaurants and beach access, makes this a nice little motel that we'd consider staying at again in the future. Clean room, nicely furnished, very comfy bed, small but updated bathroom. A/C is a bit loud and the bathroom door could use a hinge adjustment, but overall a decent room. A bit... More

My husband and I stayed here due to the extremely high prices in Ojai, Ca., where our daughter goes to school. It is located in the heart of Ventura, where there are dozens of places to eat, shopping, and a 5 minute walk to the beach. It is not fancy at all but was very clean and served an adequate... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was comfortable and very clean. The location was nice too. It was close to the beach and within walking distance to downtown, where there were a variety of shops and restaurants. Plan to return again.
