We were nicely surprised when we stayed here recently. The kitchen was full sized with updated appliances. The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet for being on a main thoroughfare. I would stay here again. We stayed in 2 different rooms and the one that was "handicapped accessible" was in the process of being updated (I'll do a... More

It was Clean, and quiet, came with a hot tub, kitchen, and free wifi. Fresh sheets and towels :) Some things needed maintenance like chipped tile, very little kitchen utensils, but you cant beat it for $100

We stayed for 2 nights to visit Los Padres National Forest and Channel Islands National Park. The location was good enough for this purpose, with a grocery very close by.

The Viking is a poorly maintained, haphazardly patched motel. The kitchenette had no utensils but for an old knife. I had to ask for a coffeemaker and it was heavily used and stained. The paint on the bathroom ceiling was flaking off and when the guest above showered, it literally rained in our bathroom. Furniture was non matching and looked... More

The room I had was dirty and some kind of very harsh chemical cleaner or "deodorizer" was used to try to cover it up. My lungs were burning, eyes watering, and I was getting so sick, I had to leave . Money wasted.

The room was smelly, very old furniture with worn out beds. Directly next to the main street- so really loud at night. No coffee for the coffee machine. The tennant was friendly. We wouldn't stay there another time.

I am not sure how anyone could rate this anything above terrible. The bars on the windows should have been our first clue. We were a larger group that took up several rooms and they were all the same! There were brown stains in the bottom of the shower; the tiles loose and falling off the wall. Each room had... More

We stayed in Ventura before our flight to New Zealand from LAX, so needed somewhere to get a good nights sleep. We came across this place, and although quirky, it was a really cool place to stay. We were given a choice of rooms, and chose one with a spa / jacuzzi which was a nice touch! There was a... More
