Nice that we were able to check in early at 1 p.m. Room very clean. Liked the set-up of the room. Roll away was available for our daughter. Very friendly staff. Continental breakfast was good. Fairly quiet on the upstairs level.

If you want the basics and a comfortable stay close to beaches and downtown, this is a nice place. The free breakfast is ok. It has much to choose from but much of it is instant, reconstituted and sugary. Friendly staff, clean rooms and property. Price for the area was good.

This is the one stop we truly regret from our San Francisco-San Diego road trip. We chose Ventura over Santa Barbara because it was much more affordable, now we know why. This is essentially a dated motel sandwiched between the highway and a busy road and the train tracks. The nearby park where we took our 5 year old to... More

We checked in early evening. Very personable staff. Recommended a place to have dinner. Told us about hot breakfast the next day. Room was clean and adequate for a family of four. I got a rollaway for $10 more. Easy check-in and check out. Only downside was the train that was close by. It went by several times during the... More

My wife and I stayed here on Friday night for my sisters wedding since it was basically next door to her house. The bed was comfortable, the neighbors were quiet and the air conditioning worked great. Unfortunately that was the most positive thing I could say about our stay. When we checked into the room, the bathroom sink and tub... More

We stayed one night at this hotel to run in the shoreline half marathon at Promenade Park. Hotel room was clean, spacious, and great air conditioner! 5 minute walk to the pier and 5 min walk to Main Street restaurants and shops. Perfect location! The hotel has exterior corridor, so it can get loud with people running up and down.... More

After checking in, we loaded up and headed to our room. The key cards wouldn't work. My boyfriend ran to get them fix, I waited with the stuff. Oscar saw me waiting, and ran up to help. He let me into the room, and even helped me with the bags. Thanks for all the help Oscar!
