Exquisite, friendly and a great location right by Main Street in the heart of downtown Ventura. The staff was very friendly and personable. There is free parking assigned in the back for guests. Our room was spacious, clean and very European vintage feeling. The lobby offers a wonderful happy hour and there is a rooftop and courtyard if you find...

This B (there is no breakfast anymore) is fabulously located in the center of Ventura. Convenient parking behind the building and you can easily walk to the beach and the pier and all the fun of downtown. That also means that it has the noise factor of downtown so if you want tranquility this is not the place for you....

This place is decked out in antique decor, and gives off a strikingly European vibe. You'd be hard pressed to find a better value or a more memorable building. It's a shame that the restaurant had closed (at least when this review was written), because it was supposed to be fantastic as well. There's a lovely courtyard out back that...

We did a drive up the coast and decided to stop in Ventura and found stayed right in the heart of downtown at Bella Maggiore. The good *location doesn't get any better if you want to walk downtown or the beach. We ate at Lure which is across the street which is rated the #1 restaurant and saw some live...

At the curb, you are greeted by the old fashioned covered entry way. The door, which you get a key to upon your stay, opens to a small quaint little lobby. The desk ladies were so sweet and efficient. You get a room key and a front door key because the door is locked around 8 PM (I believe). If...

Plenty of old-world Italian charm. Rooms are modest, but your stay includes a full, gourmet breakfast in the courtyard with a Sunday morning serenade from a Flamenco guitarist and sounds of a bubbling fountain. We had the handicap room, located directly off the patio, so it became slightly noisy in the morning when the breakfast staff arrived, but a gentle...

I have been staying at the Bella Maggiore Hotel for years and it is just lovely. A small family type hotel that is clean and comfortable and a joy to stay at. The hotel is a little old fashioned, but this adds to its charm and keeps me coming back at least twice a year.

We have stayed at this Bed and Breakfast three times now. Although we have had pleasant experiences, this time our room needed some sprucing up. The sitting area had worn upholstery and the bathroom looked a bit haggard. We were woken up by a trash truck at 6 am. on a Saturday morning. Also, the breakfast at Nonna's, a restaurant...

We entered from the courtyard and was politely greeted by the wine and cheese reception attendant. It was our first time so we were pleasantly pleased by the soft tones and comfort feel you get from the main lobby. Our second floor room was large and comfortable and overlooked the sundeck. Overall, we were happy there was no screaming children...
