The first time I stayed in this area on business I wanted to stay at this hotel because of the reviews and some of the photos. It looked and sounded very nice, but myself and a coworker were talked into trying another (well named) hotel very very close to the beach. Well, it sounded good but it only took us one night and we were out of there. The rooms were very old and the area felt very dirty and unsafe. Fortunately the Homewood Suites in Oxnard still had rooms and we were able to get a room for the remaining 4 nights. We were very impressed and I knew if I ever had to come back on business I would not look elsewhere. I recently had to return to the area on business and I definately wanted to stay here. I brought my 15 year old grandson with me and knew he would LOVE it. I booked us a 2 bedroom suite and they did not have our exact room type available when we arrived and before I could say anything they told me they upgraded our room at no additional cost. To say we were impressed was an understatement. Our room was outstanding. We each had our own bathroom, both with a jetted tub, living room, kitchen, balcony, and excellent internet. I felt very comfortable leaving him during the day while I worked. I would not have felt that way at ANY of the beach hotels in the area. All the extras at this hotel are free. You get free breakfast, parking, internet, newspaper, evening reception, with food and drinks (beer and wine). This is a wonderful hotel and would recommend anyone to stay here. I want to go back already. Thank you Homewood Suites. I will definitely be recommending this hotel to my coworkers.
