Best Westerns are usually safe as far as standard of room goes. Especially the new branded "plus", I expected something that shows that. Our room had one chair a lamp and obviously a table and another chair missing. It looked like the old hotel room that it was newly painted and rearranged a little. I expected a more comfy feel....

The check-in service was extremely poor at this hotel. They made me feel very unwelcome. The second day they check us out without advising us and changed the key on us. they said, "we didn't think you were coming back - and our stuff was still in the room. We were staying a second day They accused me of doing... More

April 2014 My husband and I were in the area for a retirement party for a friend, and we wanted to stay in Ventura within walking distance of Main Street, so we could ditch the car for both Saturday night dinner and wandering around town on Sunday morning. This Best Western had a great location for that - easy/close walking... More

We needed a place to stay for a night before driving home and we found great service in this hotel. The lobby receptionist Leticia was very welcoming and nice. The hotel room was clean and had everything we needed for the night. Breakfast was included and it was great.

Stayed for one night while on road trip. By first appearance, this hotel is a standard motel. I took a second look at the sign outside and it did indeed say Best Western PLUS. It is a two story, drive up hotel that does have a number of construction workers staying at it, so if you're not an early riser,... More

Close access to highway #101, nice location in charming downtown area, quick walk to fine dining. Room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. Generous breakfast offerings including in price. A winner and I will come back again.

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

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
