The only thing good about this hotel is it's location - a block away from Ventura beach, very close to the fairgrounds, and right down the street from Duke's Grill (wonderful food and atmosphere). Our room had two queen beds that were comfortable enough but the pillows were very lumpy and one of the bedspreads had a rather large burn... More

Fantastic location as it is steps from the beach. Affordable Suite with Jacuzzi tub. Small room but clean and quiet. Free continental breakfast. Very nice staff. "Dukes" eatery is located down the street as well as a small Fish & Chips place. A cool pub next door as well. I will definately stay here again.

the inn is has could be great if a little more detail was put into it and some upgrades, the staff is very nice, but my room needed a good cleaning, not the floors or beds but the high surfaces like the tops of the lights and arround the vent in the bath, spiderwebs, stuff like that. The lock should... More

We chose this motel for 2 reasons: they allowed pets (even large ones) and the location. Our dog was having surgery so we needed a place to stay a few nights. The location is probably the only positive thing about the place. It is within easy walking distance to the beach and several places to eat. However, the room itself... More

The location is easily within walking distance from the beach. It's an older property, but clean and comfortable room. The staff is excellent, willing to help in finding anything in the area you need. Wi Fi was good and strong! Would definitely stay here again!

Travelling up Highway One, this was the first night we had to find our own accommodation. As someone mentioned the motel has permanent residents. They weren't very friendly. The room was basic but comfortable. The staff where friendly. We got there late so the only restaurant that was open was the fish and chip shop down the road which was... More

We were traveling through California on our way to Oregon and only had one night we needed in Ventura. It was Labor day weekend and most hotels wanted a two night minimum. I called the Shores Inn and was delighted that they were willing to do one night. I reserved one room with two beds. The hotel is a two... More

The location was great. Near the beach, bars, places to eat but the room was a little dated. Clean but the bathroom was out of the 80's. The staff were nice and helpful. This is good budget accomodation. I was travelling with a mate. This would not have met my wife's standards. Also the wifi did not work too well.

Reviews are very mixed. We have a lovely weekend. After all the buzz and crowds, this place was just relaxing. We stayed three nights. The beach is 75 m away and the beach is just good. The local people go there. In the (dead end) street to the beach there are some very nice restaurants and eateries. Safeway, Starbucks, Chase,... More

We stayed in Room 104 and it was a nightmare. After we saw the room we realized we paid too much. There was no place to hang our clothes, no cups, there was black mold in the bathroom, we had to ask for towels, the sheets were thin as tissue paper, there was no toilet paper holder, and no racks...
