From the moment we checked in until check out, this was an exceptional stay. Phillip and Daniel checked us in and really set the tone for a fantastic stay. Phillip gave us each a bottle of water and let us know where everything was. He also let upgrade to a courtyard view room, which was quite a treat, as this... More

When traveling for business in the Ventura Area, I typically stay at the Palm Garden. The rooms are always clean, and the complementary breakfast makes for a nice start to the day. Each time I checked in I received two complimentary drinks at Brendan's Pub, which was always a nice perk after a long drive. The staff has always been... More

Stayed at the Palm Garden for a week and couldn't have asked for a better stay! The pool area is huge and we really enjoyed all the outdoor lounge areas. Breakfast was great and the rooms were awesome! Thanks Palm Garden!

My daughter and I and the two grandsons visited this lovely garden motel. It was lush greenery, a gazebo, a shaded patio outside the breakfast room and cabanas around the pool for the not so sunworshipper! I really enjoyed eating my breakfast outside The Garden Room. A nice touch was when the staff member distributed cold bottles of water to... More

This place is a "find." Recently remodeled with a touch of style; Black carpet with white spots looks good and is clean for now (though you must assume all carpets are filthy -- why not tile or manufactured wood?). Plantation shutters instead of dusty draperies. Large flat-screen TV; Firm bed. Plenty of electrical outlets. Toilet/shower and sink separated by a... More

We stayed in a 3rd floor courtyard room and it was fine. The bed was comfortable; our room was very quiet (despite parties going on near the lobby); and we enjoyed the free drink tickets for the pub. The bathroom fixtures are dated, but functional. There is a slight mustiness to the room (maybe due to lack of ventilation?), but... More
