Having worked in the hotel industry in the Ventura County area before, I was completely familiar with the Palm Garden Hotel years ago and the truth be told, it was not a very nice property. However, the hotel has seen a dramatic turn around for the better in areas of staffing, service most definitely with the overall facade of the... More

I stayed here for a week while traveling for work. Arrived late and was checked in by Michael who was pleasant and informative. The room was comfortable, I had a room facing the courtyard. There is a nice pool, gazebo and sitting area with firepits. It was quiet. Bed comfortable allowing a good nights rest. Breakfast was very good, no... More

We stayed here 2 nights. Nice rooms. Clean. Friendly front desk. Sufficient parking. Did not use the pool. The Oaks shopping mall was close by. Also visited Santa Barbara and on our way back to hotel we made a quick stop at the Camerillo premium outlet.

The guests were quite nice and I liked how there was a plague displaying employees of the month and the year. The room was cute although the bathroom was really small and in the same room as the closet. I did not succeed in finding the fan in there. The experience was really nice and I would be fine in...

The common areas look to have been upgraded recently! There's a pool/patio area in the center of the hotel with grass, palm trees, a pool with a giant chess board and the patio area has more modern outdoor seating with a fire pit and is really nice a relaxing. The lobby itself is really nice and seems to have been... More

I stayed in this hotel for 12 days in a courtyard room which was great. Pool is a good size and usually quiet in the day time but gets busier in the evenings. Great location- close to a large grocery store and there was a few restaurants nearby. Also a brilliant location for the Thousand Oaks Mall which is a... More

I was impressed by the lobby and the grounds were ok. But when I saw the building up close it was not what the website pictures portrayed. Filthy carpets and wrinkled sheets made me hesitant. It was awful. Motel 6 is prob cleaner and nicer.

We always stay at the Palm Garden when we visit our family members who live in California. It is very quiet and peaceful place to stay a night or two. They have free wifi, a great restaurant and pub on site and breakfast was included in the rate. It is our go to hotel.
