We stayed here 1 night while visiting family last Christmas. Great view with close proximity to the Harbor. Check out Andrea's for good fish and chips. We booked on Priceline Express Deals for a much cheaper price than listed. Only downside is you have to pay for parking.

Think of a budget quality motel - no in-room fridge, basic cable, single sink & tiny bathroom shelf, rough towels (one quite torn), thin walls w/lots of street noise plus an active freight railroad line running practically right next door - & you've got this place, except it's a large impersonal hotel that's way overpriced even at "special rate" of...

I've stayed at the Crowne Plaza Ventura many times on business, but my most recent stay was completely unacceptable. Since my concerns were not addressed by management, I feel compelled to inform others. First off, the parking situation is poor and if the lot is full you have to walk from a public lot on the other side of the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights last month while visiting friends in Oxnard, Ca. It was a nice, comfortable room but the location was what sold us. I was a little surprised that it is billed as a "crown plaza", because it was not fancy by any standard. Our room was farthest away from the freeway and we both slept... More

We thought a hotel on the beach sounded like a great idea but the Crowne Plaza was horrid. Not only are they next to the freeway but they are also next to the railway lines so you get the ambiance of traffic and trains which block out any sound of the waves. The rooms were dirty and cramped, the wall... More

I stay here a few times a month. Not because its nice. It's the only hotel on the beach. Years back this was a holiday inn. They change a few thing in the room and called it a crown plaza. This room bath room is About 7'x5' a joke. This time tub takes 15 minutes to drain and the stopper... More

I recently stayed here on a business trip. The location is perfect. The room showed it's age. The bathroom looked like it had been refreshed but some trim was coming apart. The bed cover had some sort of stain so I used the other bed. The gym was nice. The restaurant had issues. The food was good but the service... More

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Room service is very quick, and the food it good, if not great. I ordered the mussels appetizer, among other things, and they were fresh and well-prepared. The staff is friendly and helpful. Front desk was okay, not as well-trained and problem-solving as one might hope. The business center was very problematic. But... More

Hotel is right next to the beach and a short walk away from the nice shops and restaurants on Main Street. Staff were very helpful and the room/bathroom was in good condition. Great views of the Ocean from the Balcony. There is quite some noise from the nearby freeway and railway though.

I loved Ventura, that is for sure. What an amazing place. So much to do and so little to do also if you just want to relax. The Crowne Plaza is a lovely little hotel on the beach. We got sea view rooms and they were just fab. I got such an amazing sunrise photo one morning. Found the staff... More
