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

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
