“Reluctant picky lady”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I don't like older places and I'm so picky that my husband had a hard time to get me out of the car when he brought me to the Regal Lodge. I reluctantly agreed to get the room, but I left my bags in the car until I could inspect the room. I went in and the fist impression was that I liked the room, windows with min blinds, and the room was nicely decorated. Still, I had my doubts. I checked to make sure it was clean, I checked the bathroom, the bed, under the bed, and the floors for cleanliness. No problems. The towels were bigger and better than expected. the sheets were clean, clean microwave, clean toilet, sink and tub. My husband pointed out the tall mini fridge that looks like new, and the large TV screen mounted on the wall, and that we can save money while going house hunting for a few days. I had to admit it was above my expectations. On Saturday night we were happy it was relatively quiet, we had to get up early to go to church and then go see houses for sale. I thanked our real estate agent for recommending the Regal Lodge. We bought a house but will recommend others to stay at the Regal.

Spoke to "Norman" after finding this hotel by "yelp". 10 minutes away, Norman was very nice on the phone, price was great! No credit card needed to reserve, this sounded like the place for one nite, with the grand kids and Mrs. Well as I entered from the back street and pulled into a parking spot, the area in front of me looked like someone's back yard, chairs, equipment, pit, etc. then we noticed that parking was full of well used vehicle, half of which didn't look like they ran. Understand, my vehicle Is a good 10 years old, but we're original owners, and is well kept, in this lot it looked like showroom quality. So I'm the driver and plan to stay with the kids while my wife checks in. She got to the rear of the car turned around and jumped back in her seat. Said " let's go"! And without hesitation, I started the car and proceeded to drive out the way we came in. Noticing that there were quite a few men exiting rooms and going about their business. I suppose a person well assured of their own capabilities could be comfortable and save money here, but for the sake of my family We prefer to pay double the price. It's only money.

I had a nice stay here at the Regal Lodge. I definitely had a better night's sleep than at Motel 6, and the room was a lot bigger. Comfortable bed, nice staff. I would recommend for any drive along the coast. :)

Room Tip: If you have a dog, the rooms in the back have grass very nearby.

This Motel is was very uncomfortable first off, the room had a bad smell to it, sat down on the bed and it made me feel itchy. It felt more like a homeless shelter than a motel. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone at all

the regal lodge was very accommodating, very nice and great staff who was willing to help you with any questions or concerns. Norman one of the managers was very helpful with any questions i had about the city and how to get to different locations and just overall a very nice gentleman. the maids came by daily to make sure everything was copacetic and running smoothly and if ya needed anything they were very helpful and very timely. i found this to be the best place for your dollar compared to all the other hotels in town and i did research before deciding on the regal lodge.

Room Tip: check out there website to see what room you like there are beautiful murals in some of the rooms.

The rates are cheap and the people are friendly. We enjoyed our stay and we might come back next summer to stay for a week because it's close to the beach.

As part of a professional review on properties I was conducting in Oxnard California, I called the Regal Lodge to book a reservation for myself and my family. A man by the name of Norman answered the phone very rudely. He would not allow me to get in a word edge wise. I told him I was doing some research on properties and wondered if he had any availabilities. Before I completed my sentence he rudely and abruptly spoke over me and interrupted by saying, "Look, get to the point!" I then said I didn't have time for this and hung up. You know, it's people like him in this world that really can take the fun out of a family trip. It's people like him that are so rude, unprofessional and very amoral that make us just want to stay home. Please do not book with this person. He is unworthy of anyone's service.
