Don't let the outside fool you! Although it could definitely use a face lift, the room we were in was clean, beautifully renovated & designed. We had a quick check in & no problems or complaints during our 3 night stay. King sized bed was incredibly comfortable. Working AC. Mini fridge & microwave. Rack to hang up clothes. Dressers to...

outside is terrible, needs new paint, rusted everywhere, railings very shaky at best. Door and locks are a joke. Paid $130 just for a regular room because the king suite wasnt ready, they only deducted 10 bucks. Bed had a blood stain on the cover. A/C loud like a 747. Cant sleep with it on forget it, very old system.... More

I stayed at the Crystal Motel for 2 nights when in Ventura for business, all the Hotels in the area where crazy expensive and so I booked into the Crystal Motel but even this wasn't cheap at US$194 a night (inc tax). The Motel is quite old and from the outside looks a bit battered and tired, however the room... More

On a ride up the coast we booked at one of the more reasonably priced motels on the internet for this area. We were a bit taken back with the looks of the outside upon first arrival but were welcomed by super friendly and helpful staff who gave us choice of up or downstairs room. We opted for downstairs and... More

We were positively surprised by our stay in the motel. The staff was super helpful and friendly and gave us excellent tips for restaurants and what not. The suite we had was very nice, a special mention to the excellent water pressure in the shower!

I love going to Ventura and trying out new places. This hotel looked interesting online and had good reviews, so we thought we would give it a try, I mean it had a huge dos tub in the room! The outside definitely needs remodeling. It was more like something you would expect to see in a horror movie! Still hopeful... More

My 18-year-old son and I decided to drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles along the Pacific Coast Highway for Spring Break ('16). As a single mom, who does not receive child support, and earns a modest salary, I was concerned about our expenses incurred during our trip. However, I did A LOT of research and had determined this was... More

From the pics online it doesn't look too appealing. But I was pleasantly surprised with how nice it was inside, plus the beauty of the city gives the place a comforting environment. The green trees, soft winds, and wet air made me feel so relaxed and I would definitely return to this hotel next time I visit Ventura.

Newly renovated rooms, Shower is like your under a waterfall, New 50/55" TV, micro and refrigerator in room, Staff friendly and helpful, free bottled water a nice touch. Parking could be a challenge, Management working on inside before outside so don't judge a book by its cover. Neighborhood not the greatest but doable. Close to beach and downtown.
