After a truly disgusting experience at the nearby Crowne Plaza, we came over here to the Amanzi. It’s lovely and clean. The staff is respectful and accommodating. That’s all we’re looking for whilst traveling during a pandemic.

Hotel's Favorite
We have been staying at the Amanzi since they have had new owners and through their remodeling which is all done. They have a great location in Ventura, one block from the beach and just across the highway from the pier. The reception area and room were immaculate. They have put up a plexiglass screen to protect staff and visitors. Luis at the desk is great,inquiring about our drive and plans and telling us to let him know if there are any problems. The breakfast area and pool are closed to promote social distancing but.they provided a bag of fruit and breakfast bars and the beach is a quick walk as is the city of Ventura. We are looking forward to our next visit when the city reopens!

We were initially happy to have stayed at a hotel in such a prime location with decent amenities, but extremely disappointed with their safety measures in regards to COVID-19. Despite multiple signs posted around the hotel, we saw a number of hotel staff not wearing their masks correctly (IF YOUR NOSE IS HANGING OUT YOU MIGHT AS WELL NOT BE WEARING A MASK), or not wearing a mask at all. While walking in the hallways of the hotel, guests seemingly had blatant disregard for mask wearing and nobody was ever called out. Even in the lobby! If you are planning on staying here during the pandemic, be wary that this hotel is not enforcing the Government Mandated Safety Measures to the extent that they should be.

Please be assured that our hotel and staff has been following all the protocols issued by our county since March. While we have had concerns with some guests who have medical reasons for not wearing masks (this incidents were handled accordingly after verifying protocols with authorities), know that our management continues to work with our team to maintain a safe environment for all. Our management extends apologies for any missteps our team or guests may have had during your stay. We hope you understand the challenges we face and as we do take the health of our community to heart.

the rooms are nice, but during a so called pandemic everything is closed, even the ice machine on my floor. the area is nice, but it is right next to the 101 freeway, the noise never ceases, the beach view is beyond the freeway. but the ocean breezes are awesome.

We got kicked out of our room because neighbors were noisy and they refused to refund our money. We booked a room and some people we knew booked separately in a room down the hall. They were being noisy and had complaints so they got kicked out. Because they knew we came in together they kicked us out also even though our room was quiet. They refused to give us a copy of their rules, they refused to give us a refund and when called they told us to mail a letter to their law office (which was their address).
