Looking for picturesque - this is not the place. Looking for Ventura hotel that is clean, comfortable and a convenient location - this Comfort Inn hits them all. Located right off the 101, I mean RIGHT off the 101, it was surprisingly quiet. The room was clean and came equipped with both a fridge and a microwave - nice. Though a bit tight, the bathroom area did have two sinks with one located in a dressing area which made it easy for my wife to put on make-up etc, while I took a shower. And she commented that there was good light and a full mirror too. The bed and other room amenities were fine. No pool, no work-out room, and no deal with a local gym; that was too bad. They were repainting while we were there, so the odor was evident. But how often do they do that? And we just used the a/c unit in the room, which helped a lot.The breakfast at Denny's was a great option, though if the weather is bad, the short walk to the restaurant could be a hassle. Next door there is an In-N-Out Burger and across the street is 7-11. The beach is about a mile away and the walk is pleasant. We found the staff to be most friendly. A vacation spot this is not. But over all, a good place to stay a few days while on business or if you have a weekend family event.
