“Lovely location and beautiful property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

This Mariott is a quick walk out to the beach at the end of the block. The fountain in the lobby & waterfalls outside are beautiful, as is the terrace with firepits at night. Our room was spotless and comfortable, and we really loved the pool & jacuzzi. This hotel seems an odd mix of old and recently-renovated -- from the very old logos on each door to the strange mix of furniture in the room. But the rates are good and the bed was super-comfy. Parking is a little steep ($13 just to self-park) in an area with plenty of space, and we cannot figure out why Marriott refuses to join the 21st century and offer free wireless in the rooms. WHO charges for that these days?! Ridiculous. It's free in the lobby at this Mariott. Wish they'd expand it throughout the hotel!

The visited the Ventura Beach Marriott recently for a short business trip. The hotel is located right off the freeway and only about a block or two from the beach. The hotel property is lovely with a very nice court yard complete with fire pits makes for a relaxing place to sit at night. They have a full service bar, very helpful staff and a great pool. I'd recommend a room overlooking the court yard. There are nice eateries only a few minutes away and if you get a craving in the middle of the night they have room service or an In and out just across the street. Great stay. Only wish I could have stayed longer

Room Tip: Chose a room over looking the courtyard

very nice place, when speaking of Ventura that is. I would definitely recommend and probably stay again. As I prefer to stay with Marriot when traveling to unknown destinations it seems to be a sure bet you'll be in for a nice stay.

Room Tip: If traveling to the Marriot in Ventura stay in a King suite or better imho

We stayed at this property in August, 2012. It's less than 5 minute walk to the beach. Great rooms and well appointed concierge lounge. Located close to the freeway, plus In-N-Out Burger is right across the street. I will definitely stay at this property again!!

This is an ok hotel to stay at as you are driving through and need a place to stop. The rates were pretty reasonable but there is nothing special about the hotel. You can walk to the beach and it is across from In and Out :) The rooms and bathrooms need updating but there were clean. I did ask for an upgrade and was told that they were so busy so that was disappointing but other than that everything was fine.

The hotel in its self is a nice property. There are a few things that stood out...

1. To get to the room, I had to trek across the courtyard to a seperate elevator.

2. The room appeared to be clean but after removing my shoes, there were crumbs on the floor from the last guest.... which in turn caused me to closely inspect the bed.

3. There were "hairs" all over the tub from the prior guest.

4. I was charged for self-parking but never parked a car. Front desk attendant thought he was being funny by saying "how dare they" when I brought this to their attention. He also had to ask for help when reversing the charge,

I was so exhausted from the drive from LA and prior meeting that I did have the energy to address this with anyone at the hotel. I would probably stay here again but would definitly bring any future concerns to someone's attention.
