We checked into 3 rooms, 2 of them had urine smells in them, one had a bed that you sank into the middle of the bed. The windows wouldn't open or close. No refigerators, it was a $10.00 charge. No hair dryers, you were allowed only one class in the bath room no exceptions! We asked to look at another... More

This is a terrible place to stay. It is located next to a park where all the homeless people in Ventura sleep. We had homeless people smoking drugs within 10 feet to our window. There were also homeless people wandering through the lobby and courtyard. This is unacceptable as there is no security presence of any form. We felt so... More

I did nit even check in. I was going to, looked at the room, very musty smelling like dead humidity. I saw a dead cockroach in the bath tub and scooted out of there. Where there is one there is more. Time to call the bug killer. Also, I am not going to use Hotels.com, Priceline, none of those for... More

Spent 2 nights at this hotel. Room was large and comfortable and staff very nice. My main complaint was that they weren't truthful about the Jacuzzi not heating up and no wifi in the rooms. They said "someone was working on it" instead of just being up front with the information. Don't look for a full breakfast......only cold cereal, muffins... More

We booked 3 rooms for a wedding and reception. I was wary about the location and hotel but was pleasantly surprised. The hotel has a wonderful lobby and eating area. I really enjoyed the location so close to downtown and the local beach. I always stop by Tony's Pizza when I am in town and this was in walking distance.... More

When we got there they did not have one of our reservations but accomadated us anyway. However when we checked out they said they would not charge us, as we prepaid online when we reserved the two rooms, and would check with them and call me if there was any discrepancy. I received no call and got home to (2)... More

This place was probably a nice hotel at one time. Not anymore. Rude and indifferent staff. No welcome or salutation of any kind upon check in. Dated room. Old linens and terrible pillows. Filthy bathroom. Food discarded in the planter in the hallway and left for the insects. Horrible breakfast. All processed, unhealthy food, ie. low quality Walmart mini muffins... More

I really wanted to like this quaint and picturesque hotel but was sorely disappointed! Advertised complimentary wine and cheese - didn't happen, tv not working, apparently a power outage, but all other electricity was working, wifi only available in the lobby, shabby bed cover - pillowcase on inside out, curtains with a few holes in them, only coffee stocked in...

This property has the potential to very nice. It is quaint and warm upon entering with a lovely fireplace and Spanish style furnishings. With that being said, there are so many things that could be improved upon. The service is deplorable. You book a fireplace room and are advised that the site you booked on must have an inventory flaw.... More
