My husband and I just spent a night at the Crowne Plaza to celebrate his birthday. The newly renovated patio facing the ocean is tremendous. Great place for a cocktail before dinner. We have stayed here several times, but it's better than ever. The service and staff are incredible. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. My husband met up with... More

I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times. It's generally clean and has a friendly staff. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's right on the beach (but it has an odd placement so no room really has a full ocean view) but it's also a mile or two from downtown Ventura. A quick walk... More

I visited the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach recently to see their new outdoor firepit and bar area - what a great location to enjoy a cocktail and enjoy the view! The staff is always so friendly and welcoming. Weekends are busy here and it's no wonder because the beach and location are such a draw. There is a great energy... More

The staff here are nice - young, energetic, proactive, helpful, polite and generally well-informed. That goes a long way to offsetting the disadvantages, most of which are a consequence of an aged building design plus subsequent wear and tear. The hotel was built in the early 1970s and it shows. The rooms are long and narrow with mostly oblique views... More

Stayed two nights here in August, what a pleasant surprise. The hotel is literally on the beach and there are tons of good restaurants within walking distance both on the nearby Ventura pier and in downtown old Ventura. Yes there is a commuter train running right in front of the hotel but it does not go by after about 8pm... More

Stayed after a business dinner rather than drive home and the place was packed! Older hotel, small rooms but the location has lots to offer, the staff is great, rooms affordable, and some fine dinning is very close. The air conditioner is very loud, making it hard to sleep and we found the freeway noise by opening the slider preferable... More
