Hotel is located right on the beach, the ocean view is perfect. But the hotel needs some work to be done everything is old and dirty. Also smells as dirty room. The breakfast is also poor, but the staff is nice. please take advantage of the ubicacion and invest some money to improve that place.

Believe it! This place is right on the beach. I read reviews but decided to check myself and glad I did. We stayed here a night and wanted to stay additional night but had to make way to Grand Canyon. You walk out the Hotel a few steps and your feet touches the sand. Room was cleaned and they have...

We visited in June of 2013, so things may have changed. We chose this place because we wanted to open the door to our room and hear the waves crashing. What a unique place this was! It was very retro and had an eclectic style. The people with guest services were very kind and helpful. The room did have a... More

This place has been our "go to" place for many years. It is an older hotel ( as are most of the hotels in Ventura) and needs some tender lovin care but it has always been clean and cozy. We usually stay on the top floor as that will give you the best view. Be careful of the first floor... More

It was right on the beach which was nice. However our room was not clean. Think tortilla chip parts on the floor, granola bar wrappers under the bed and used wipes as well. Fireplace had handprints all over it. Bathroom was marginally cleaner. Aesthetically, they needed a bedspread. Furniture was old but wouldn't have minded if the room were clean.... More

I love Inn on the beach. It's a boutique hotel with a simple charm all its own & from my experience staying by the ocean from Puerto Vallarta to St Martin & Inn on the beach is the closest to the water, it's fantastic. Prices vary per floor & days & are very reasonable for a great ocean experience sleeping... More

I just wanted to thank the owner of the Hotel and the front desk people for turning my birthday vacation into a political theater for nonsmoking policies in the great state of California. I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Political Science and the front desk person felt he needed to educate me on how the... More

Location and view from 3rd floor room are the only good thing about this place. Rooms are in bad condition and dirty. A few upgrades in the room (hair dryer and magnifier mirror) were new, jet tub was newer but who would sit in that! The fireplace in the room was pretty nice and the bed was pretty comfy. It...

I like the experience of the ocean and all it has to offer. This hotel has it all. Open the sliding door and the ocean is a landscape of blue and the cool salt air will give you a new beginning Each room has a balcony with table and chairs and a view of the southern coastline.
