This Inn used to be a great roadside stop while visiting Ventura or, maybe just passing thru. The property has a nice pool outside to sit and read/lounge and, a wonderful little Coffee Shop serving up really good, homestyle cooking. The Mngmnt., 'Maronee' is very helpful & nice. Been coming to the property for years. Fast forward to recent times and my last visit. These days the place attracts (primarily) traveling Contractors and Utility workers, who clog up the parking lots with their annoying 'hemi-engine' trucks all @ once revving up 5/6 a.m. mornings, disturbing sleeping guests. The noise annoyance of this alone, has run me off the property. Yes the rooms are older, but clean. Nice bathroom facilities. Railroad doesn't bother me. However, the budget seeking workers have now "pitched an encampment" at this property and are loud & rowdy weekday evenings w/ noticable beer drinking and leering, of female customers. Just scarey groups. Also, there are (other) assorted 'seedy types' who are visiting the Motel and on my recent stay of (2) nites, I observed a Ventura Co. police car at the property late one eve; that happens quite frequently at this VI. Seen it before....The place doesn't hold the same charm or, safety that it did so many years ago. Just a lower class of dwellers and therefore, not a hotel I would recommend staying with, especially if you are female. There is another chain right around the corner on the famous Ventura boardwalk - nicer views and the absence of Utility trucks & rowdy crowds - price prohibitive for them. Good thing.
