Fully renovated hotel. Most rooms have a view of the ocean. Nice breakfast was included with the room. Very nice bar with patio and view of the beach. Nearby restaurant has an excellent variety of fish tacos. One block away a resteraunt with 101 different beers. BEWARE - hotel is near the Pacific Coast Rail line....the train goes by the... More

This hotel is conveniently located on the Ventura beach, you cant get closer to the ocean and you are right on the promenade and near the pier. Unfortunately the hotel is outdated but the price is fair. Usually Crowne Plaza hotels internationally have great properties, luxurious and expensive. In the US are very outdated and should be taken care of.... More

Can't beat the location right by the ocean if you're a surfer or beach-lover. You have to walk across a rather ugly concrete plaza to get to the beach, but the beach itself is nice and overlooks the Ventura Pier; scenic. I did not get to enjoy the beach myself because I was in town for business and it was... More

Business took me to Ventura again and as always, I try and stay at the Crown Plaza. The front desk crew was cheerful and very accommodating. The rooms are kind of small but everyone of them has an ocean view, I happened to get one closest to the beach which gives you a great view of the coastline. I will... More

My wife had business in Ventura and we decided to stay at this hotel. I went along with her. She had an appointment at 3 pm. We were given a late checkout (2 pm) and I was allowed to use the pool facilities until 4:30 when she returned from her meeting. The rooms were very clean and the beds were... More

We spent 2 nights in the hotel during a family vacation. Everything you want is right there, a pool, the beach, a great walking path and the pier. We enjoyed the balcony with our room and had coffee watching the surfers. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.
