Two years ago my wife and I made a trip from NH to Ventura to visit the Channel Islands. I wanted to surprise my wife with a beautiful room so I called the Clocktower Inn and reserved a room with a fireplace and I paid for the room in full at the time I made the reservation. When we arrived... More

I love staying here because it is close to the shops, restaurants, and museums. It's clean and affordable. Neatly decorated with old Spanish charm. Breakfast in the mornings. Eggs and pastries. There is a Mexican Cantina within the hotel, too!

I intentionally waited a while before posting this review because I wanted to be sure that my written opinion wasn’t just me ‘shooting from the hip.’ And after letting my experience sink in for a while, I feel a responsibility to let others know so you can make a more informed decision about lodging here. I stayed at the Clocktower... More

The Clocktower Inn was recommended to us by friends and family although they hadn't stayed there for years. It is showing age and neglect but some of it's lost charm shows through. We booked a balcony room, were checked into a guest room with a defunct AC unit and a non functioning TV. The towels were nice and there was... More

My lady and I were driving to Santa Maria from Orange County and we decided to stay in Ventura along the way. It was late at night, we had no reservations, and we found this place. Our room was downstairs, alongside the park, and we had a good night's rest. Complimentary breakfast was pretty decent: cold cereal, juice, waffles, pastries,... More

Should have read the reviews. Outside looked cute with plenty of beautiful plants. Walked in room and was immediately turned off. Room was extremely small with tiny bed. The comforter was very outdated and flipped it back to find stains all over. Also there was no fitted sheet just one very thin flat sheet I could see the old mattress... More

My wife and I used to like to stay there because of the location and reasonable price. However, the place has only continued to decline. We stayed there in July with two of our grandchildren and were quite disappointed. We had to change rooms after the first day. Upon our return after lunch we entered into our room to discover...
