Hotel location is great but security is bad, I was given the key to the room which wouldn't work, my husband went back to the front desk, but while I waited someone opened the door from the inside and said that the room was ready. We asked the front desk and they were not aware that this individual was in... More

I completely understand the "you get what you pay for" saying. I have however, stayed at quite a few places which were so much more pleasant than this place. Granted, we stayed on a Saturday night which I know weekend prices go up. The premises were not the most appealing ~ looking worn down and in a sketchy neighborhood. That... More

Overall, very happy with the accommodations and cleanliness of the location. Smack dab in the middle of Ventura so very walkable to several places (including the beach/pier). My group included an older couple who loved the architecture, furniture pieces, and the courtyard space. Two recommendations to the hotel: 1) Need to update the linens in the bedrooms (since one of... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night to attend a meeting in the town of Ventura. The Good: Location, Price. The Not so good: Older hotel that needs lots of updates. It was adequate for a one night stay and within walking distance of the town merchants. Nice if you want to go to town, eat, drink adult beverages... More

Visiting Ventura from San Diego we had a wonderful two night stay here and will be back again soon. Friendly staff, second floor private balcony overlooking a center courtyard/greenhouse with huge trees and nice breezes. Good old-fashioned hospitality. My wife and I enjoyed the Clocktower Inn and will recommend it to others. Bob P.

Stayed overnight on the way to Santa Barbara from the Inland Empire. The room was a little small, but neat and clean and actually very cozy. The staff was nice, a little hard to understand. We were on the 2nd floor facing the parking lot, which was a little loud, but things quieted down. The parking is a little tight,... More

Both evening and morning staff were very pleasant. We booked 2 standard Queen bed rooms. The first room we were sent to had water running in the bathtub with no way to turn it off. They were very nice about it and immediately moved us to another nearby room that happened to have a balcony (no chairs outside but it... More

Just home from spending Christmas in Ventura. The people at the Clocktower Inn were extremely friendly and accommodating. Room #112 is now my favorite and I will ask for it again! It's in the back, quiet, lots of windows with marble ledges and A/C, AND it's near the jacuzzi. The location of the inn is perfect with old Main St,... More
