My husband and I stayed here for the weekend. When we come to Ventura we usually stay in a hotel on the beach or by the water, but this time we were looking for a place close to the Ventura Raceway, because we were going to go to the races on Sat evening. We figured Best Western had higher standards... More

customer service was awesome, room was clean, pool was heated. The bed was a little uncomfortable but overall it was a great stay. It was lose to everything and I recommend if you can walk everywhere! You won't need to find parking! Breakfast was good and always full and hot.

I pulled in, to check in about 2 p.m. and was told the rooms would not be ready till 4 p.m. Being tired I decided to walk to the pier and enjoyed the 6 min walk to return to a room that had shampooed carpet, clean room top to bottom and really enjoyed my first stay there. I will return... More

This is an old property but the rooms are updated with fridge, microwave and flat TV. Check in and out were ok (i was asked to return later as I arrived 2 hours prior check in time). Swimming pool was ok too. Breakfast is great here, with many options. Will recommend this place to anyone.

I was there during the Ventura Marathon and one of the Rods and Relics Best Car Shows I have ever been too. It is in a convenient location you can walk or take a taxi to just about anywhere in town.

So I will start by saying I'm a Best western loyalist... I travel for work roughly one week a month and don't stray from best western unless I have to. I will never stay at this hotel again, and here's why: I stayed on my way home from Paso Robles to Los Angeles. I had called earlier in the day... More

In general the inn is in a convenient location. It is right next to the freeway and within walking distance to the beach of ventura and the ventura pier. Therefore, the breeze and the view were definitely enjoyable. Although the inn is next to the freeway, when the windows are sealed, the noise of the traffic is also sealed. The... More

CKC206- We most certainly appreciate your feedback. Our rooms do come equipped with a hairdryer. Which is located in the closet in a Vidal Sassoon bag. I'm not sure if you called the front desk regarding this but we would have told you where to find it and if it wasn't there would have gladly brought you one! We thank... More

We've stayed there two years in a row for the Ventura Marathon in Sept and it was ideal. Although the exterior is date, the rooms are really nice along with new towels and clean decor. The management is very accommodating for guests who were there for the race. Allowed us to check out late, held our bags and put out... More

We stayed here over a period of four days. This facility is old, however they have updated their bathrooms nicely. Rooms are quite small. Beds are very comfortable. Staff is helpful ans rooms are cleaned everyday very nicely. The huge thing for us was the carpet. It was so disgusting, obviously very old and grossly dirty. Not sure why anyone... More

Very clean and nicely decorated. Despite being near the freeway and train tracks, the room was quiet. It is nice that the air conditioners are in the back of the room so we don't have to hear those on nearby when we have the window open. Great walkable location to the downtown and coastline.
