“Perfect for stop over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

I can't believe some of the bad reviews for this place! We arrived to a really friendly reception and were checked in quickly and smoothly. We were pleasantly surprised when we entered the room which had a huge king size bed with a large flat screen TV and was very clean. There was also a microwave and fridge supplied and the free coffee and pastries in the morning was a nice touch. The shower was really powerful and looked brand new. Not much around the motel itself but it was great for a stopover between LA and Santa Barbara. It was a little pricey but I think that was due to Memorial weekend hiking up all the hotel prices and it was one of the cheapest in the area!

This hotel is definitely nothing cute, luxurious, or exciting, but for a budget motel, it was clean, had all the basics, and felt safe. The first thing we noticed when we entered our room was that it had a pretty strong bleach smell, but I found that better than other alternatives like cigarettes, dust, or gross people smells. Other than that, though, everything was okay. Sheets and towels (and toilet paper!) were all the thinnest basics, but clean. Wifi was slow but worked. Overall, this motel gets the job done if you're looking for an affordable place to spend a night or two.

This was the filthiest, smelliest, room I have ever stayed in. RUN AWAY as fast as you can. They could not pay me a million dollars to stay there. It was traumatizing. There was 2 inches of dirt everywhere and food on the floor. There were balled up kleenex ( FILTHY) under the bed. There was BLOOD SPATTER on the sheets. There were weirdos everywhere outside and a man 4 feet from our car, sitting smoking crack. It was SCARY.

Room Tip: Run, like a thief.

Not happy with my fellow Trip Advisor contributors who have rated this place above "Terrible"! The photographer for this place should get an award. So much worse than it looks on the web site. Office was filthy! A disheveled woman step out from a darkened room into the reception area to check us in. Pleasant, but looked like she just rolled out of bed. There were Sketchy guys hanging out and smoking on the 2nd floor balcony, which just happened to be where our room was, #206.
We enter the room and wanted to turn and run! The smell! the dirty walls! We told ourselves it was only for 1 night, and decided to stay. We began to settle in and found what looked like, fried chicken pieces on the filthy carpet, several crumpled tissues under the bed, a filthy tv, grungy bed spread, cigarette holes in the blankets and dirty sheets. After about 15 minutes of try to convince ourselves we'd be OK, we called the front desk and asked to check out without a charge. After some discussion, she relented and let us go. We got in our car a noticed a man sitting on the parking lot curbing, 10 feet from our car smoking a crack pipe. Couldn't get out of their fast enough! Worst place we've ever "almost" stayed, EVER! Checked in to a Comfort Inn, a few miles away where we have a reservation for tomorrow night. Kenya, at the Comfort Inn was able to accommodate us at a reduced rate after she heard of our horror story at Victoria Motel.
(I will review The Comfort Inn, Ventura CA after our stay)
At $69, the Victoria Motel is a rip off! Even if they offered us a free night, we wouldn't stay here! Horrible, horrible, horrible!!!

We had to stop on our way to LA and and this motel was just on the road. Rooms are clean and renovated. Bed soft and comfortable. They serve some coffee in the reception. In overall it was good value for money.

I've stayed here several times in the past & it was fine but not this time! This time it appears 2 older family members have appeared from somewhere who seem to go out of their way to make you feel uncomfortable & just super rude with absolutely no social skills what's so ever, I walked into the lobby & the old man just glares at me, says nothing & walks away! when he passes me by on the outside he snickers under his breath & again says nothing, like a normal person would say hello but instead its just a big creepy vibe & the wife of the elderly man is no better she just will stare at you like you doing something wrong...they will never say hello or treat you like a human being, there were other creepy incidents but I'll just leave it at that...& don't leave anything in the rooms cause housekeeping will not turn it in...I left a pair of prescription reading glasses that I paid $100. & based on my follow up calls it looks like no one had the decency to turn them in....I will not be staying here again nor will I recommend it which is ashamed because it had potential..btw,The younger couple are nice but they gotta do something about the 2 older ppl who behave so negatively towards the customers & hire a more honest cleaning staff its just cost them some business...

Room Tip: If you want internet service don't stay in room #105...

Nice clean newly renovated room with a comfortable bed. Interesting in that it featured a flat screen television, microwave, and refrigerator but no coffee pot or hairdryer. There was an ironing board but no iron. Overall a good value.
