The fan in the room was so loud and mad me feel I am sleeping by a operating plane! I couldn't sleep at all, the noise, the smell invests. Horrible horrible horrible... More

This Inn/Suites is short of even being that. Yes, I looked by the beach, but the area is just run down. Just take a look at my pic's. For the price you pay, you are better off staying at the Holliday Inn or even better, take the 30 - 40 min drive and enjoy Santa Barabra. Much cleaner and the... More

Employees of this establishment are horrible at best. The girl that worked on Sat 6/2, must be employed here, because she inn't employable at good establishments. Her attutide is just horrible. I guess she fits in with the rest of the place. House keeping is non-existant. Room was very dirty and un kept. The room had one blind on half... More

We were a bit leary after reading some of the bad reviews but with it being a holiday weekend and everything booked we took a chance. It was just as expected, a motel. Nothing fancy but much better than we expected and being able to make our own waffles was pretty fun and neat too. Its very close to the... More

We have been coming to Ventura and have stayed here many times when we are in town. This place is on the up and up from what we have seen, we are very pleased with the direction it has taken. They have to our surprise added nice outside patios at each downstairs room! We loved that, it made us be... More

My friends go there on a regular basis. It is old but clean. Staff is good. we know them all by name and they remember us. The Front desk has a frequent turnover but they try to accommodate as much as possible. The wireless is not great but the staff go above and beyond to get it hooked in. We... More

Do NOT be seduced by the location! It is terribly run down and disgustingly filthy. RUN AWAY! Broken furniture. Bed sheets dirty and had hair, so I tried the next bed but could not quite sleep after that - yucky cooties! I have short red hair ... see the photo of the hair in my bath/shower! And, seriously! this is... More

3 friends travelling up the coast and we found Shores Inn and Suites ideally located in Ventura. The price was reasonable, and so I suppose we should have checked the rooms first. Charlie and I had a room with a fabulous power shower, but the whole place reeked of smoke. The sheets were cleanish!! Beth's room was ok, not too... More

This one was hard to swallow, I had fond memories staying here during summer vacations as a youth so when we pulled into town this is the first place I stopped. Unfortunety the past 20+ years have not been kind to this place or the whole area for that matter. We arrived early afternoon obviously before the pimps and drug... More
