Stopped in Ventura on the way to Disneyland, we got a family suite and was very happy with the room and the kind front desk staff. We had a swim in the heated pool and ate dinner at the adjoining restaurant! It was a great beginning to a wonderful vacation!

We have stayed here a few times before but things are going downhill. The local police took one of the homeless down in the parking lot. We love the VagaBond Restaurant on site. Great staff but the Motel needs help. NO WIFI

Parking was good outside of my room as I have a 20-foot van. Because of the restaurant parking, sometimes I had to find other parking, which was very difficult. The room was nice and the location was good. The staff were very helpful.

Thanks for the review! We have parking in the back of the hotel for larger vehicles. If you have a room along the back side of the hotel, you can see the back parking lot from the window in the bathroom. (You can also see the Ocean from there too.) We hope that next time you're in the area you... More

Good price, close to pier, old town, museums, mission. Great breakfast in the restaurant. Spencer McKenzies fish across the street has the best fish ever. The Alhoa Grill by the pier has a good happy hour with $2.75 draft beers and well priced appetizers. Erics's on the pier also has a great happy hour with $2.50 premium drafts and wonderful... More

We were looking for a family friendly place to stay and the Vagabond was decently priced for a 3 star rated hotel. We had no problems during check in and the gal behind the desk was very friendly. We booked two rooms and which were located on separate floors. We were there barely a half hour when we noticed a... More

I am truly hoping that you reviewed the wrong hotel. With that said, I will check with housekeeping about the pot smoking. I didn't notice it, but I'm sure they would have. I am going to start charging people that smoke in rooms and am going to make all rooms non-smoking. I'm sorry that your experience here was ruined by... More

I've stayed here a few times now, and really like the fact that its located within walking distance of the pier, and also downtown where the clubs are clustered. The location makes it desirable. They are also pet friendly and don't charge a ridiculous pet fee either. With that said, though, the property itself is aging, the clientele can get... More

Thanks for writing a review of our property. It does get pretty busy here at times, especially when the weather is great. I am going to start charging people that smoke in non-smoking rooms. I am also thinking about making all rooms non-smoking. We are happy that you and the pup come and stay with us. See you next time. More

This is where I normally stay when visiting Ventura 3-4 times annually. This time staff absence meant clean rooms were't available until 4:15. TV in room had no signal - not a big deal for me. Motel location is excellent - walking distance to both downtown and beach promenade. Restaurant next door serves great breakfasts. Overall a good deal for... More
