The check in staff was excellent. The rooms need to be updated but the location is awesome. Right on the beach and near the pier. Good place for the price.

We stayed at the hotel over the New Year's weekend. We found the staff to be most helpful, the room to be clean and comfortable and the price for the location was great! The party was so much fun and the DJ was fantastic. I would definitely stay here again and reccomend to my family and friends.

Had a one night stay here before our trip to Channel Islands NP. The hotel is right next to the beach/pier and for being PC platinum, we were upgraded to an oceanview room with an amazing balcony view. Parking was available in the surface lot next to the hotel for $10/night, and you were within walking distance of many neat restaurants and shops. Overall, a great stay! We would definitely come back.

Went to the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach's New Year's Eve party- absolutely amazing! The four course meal (of ahi tuna, salad, steak and prawns and delicious dessert) was just the beginning- Bruce Barrios, the DJ had everyone up and dancing during dinner! The minute he started his show, the whole room started the party and just kept it going until we rang in the new year to confetti canyons and champagne. Unbelievably fun. The best thing is that you are already home when the party ends (just take the elevator...). Totally safe, totally fun. Waking up on New Year's Day to gorgeous sunshine, a delicious breakfast and a walk on the beach was a perfect way to start the year. Thanks to the Crowne for creating a fun, safe and memorable New Year's experience!

Signing up for the free Priority Club member program entitled us to a free upgrade in room and two free drink coupons. The outside patio was awesome and very comfortable patio furniture. The view off our balcony was fabulous. The noise from the freeway was only noticeable with the patio door open. When closed, we could not hear any noise. Beds were comfortable, staff friendly. One last odd thing to mention, the shower had excellent water pressure and shower head was huge and upgraded.

Room Tip: Get the priority card for the free upgrade. I also used AAA for a very good rate.

From my review on FlerTalk

- What is your Priority Club status?
Platinum

- Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
Generally, yes

- Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Standard room...got standard room, upgraded to higher floor. .

- How are the rooms?
Old and tired! However, the room was clean.

- How is the exec. lounge?
No lounge

- What was good and what was bad?
Good

Friendly and efficient staff
Ample parking ($10 per 24-hour period).
Close to downtown Ventura with lots of shopping and restaurants.

Bad

Old CRT tube TV's
No complimentary wi-fi for Platinum members ($10 per 24-hour period)
Given one welcome drink ticket and one complimentary breakfast ticket....there were two of us staying in the room...didn't bother to argue.

- Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return?
Probably not, the age of the rooms and general appearance of the property don't feel worthy of a CP. Would find some place else for the price ($109 per night).

Great views of Ventura Beach and the pier, right on the waterfront. Close to many restaurants, bars and shops. Well priced with an efficient and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Ask to be as near the beach as possible for the best view
