We stayed one night at the Crowne Plaza and had a very comfortable stay. The room was cozy and clean. We paid for the WiFi and noticed late in the evening that the connection was cutting in out. We mentioned this casually to the front desk staff at check-out, and without question they waived the WiFi fee. We really appreciated... More

We stayed here for a two-night getaway on a holiday weekend. The hotel is right on the beach in Ventura and has great views up and down the coast. We stayed on the 11th floor and switched rooms halfway through our stay, so got to enjoy both views. Odd-numbered rooms look down the coast over a sandy beach and pier,... More

The hotel is very nice and right on the beach. The staff was exceptional. Julie at the front desk was very nice. We had a very nice ocean view and enjoyed a nice sunset! The room was very comfortable with all the amenities including microwave and fridge. Bed and pillows were heavenly! As a member of the rewards program, the... More

This hotel is great and the staff is even better. I stay here frequently and have always had a stellar stay! It's right on the beach and walking distance to downtown Ventura. Tacos and beer at the bar or by the pool is always a good choice.

Crowne Plaza Ventura is really like our home away from home. Why? I'll tell you. It's a very simple, yet clean hotel. The rooms have all of the basic needs...a comfortable bed, good bathroom with nice soaps, welcoming decorations and a balcony with a wonderful ocean view. Besides being next to the beach and bike/walking path, the hotel is within... More

For what I paid, I was truly surprised at how great not only the location was, but the property overall. You can literally step out of the lobby and you are steps from the beach. Convenient on-site parking and I was pleased to discover if we signed up for their "rewards program", our parking was free. I think it's only... More

Great location by the ocean and the pier, short walk into town. The room was fine...after maintenance came and changed the filter in the hvac unit. It was producing odd smells, but, all was fixed by the maintenance crew. We were on a Roadscholar trip and so were there Sunday through Friday. The meals served to our group were very... More

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
