I stayed here for three nights while movers were packing and delivering my things to my new home. I chose this property because of the reviews, the pictures looked good and it is pet friendly. From the minute I arrived the staff were swell. Lindsi and Sylvia found me a lovely room on the 3rd floor overlooking the harbor. Sophie... More

This place has been our go-to destination for quick local getaways for several years. In previous reviews we have expressed great satisfaction with the location, conditions and value. On our latest trip (July 2016) it was immediately apparent that little or no attention is being paid to maintaining the rooms and facilities. The room furniture is worn, wall coverings and... More

Yes, some of the HIEs do need a makeover, but they are never the worst places to stay. This HIE has a nice view of the harbor, even if my bathroom felt retro. While I was just passing through for one night because Santa Barbara is overpriced, the stay was worth it even if I had to pay $10 for... More

The hotel is a bit outdated, but its functional, plus is located next to the harbor village which is very convenient for shopping, dinning and just relaxing next to the ocean. Every room has a balcony and the view is nice.

Not your typical Holiday Inn, wow, I am really impressed. Nice clean room overlooking the bay reminded me of a time in Cape Cod. Spacious room, nice comfortable bed, room to move around without bumping into things, sofa bed, balcony overlooking docked boats - very nice. There's an overhead bridge which allows access to the 4 Points by Sheraton... as... More

The location of the hotel could not be more spectacular. Our room looked directly out onto Ventura Harbor. The colors of the boats were spectacular. The room was OK. There was nothing special about it. It was large, but poorly lit. The sliding door to the large deck had trouble opening. The breakfast was passable. I felt that the pancake... More

We have stayed here before and decided on another trip in celebration of my 60th birthday. The rooms were clean and comfortable as usual, with an outstanding view of the harbor. We enjoyed our walks along the harbor area as well as shopping at the harbor shops and meals at the restaurants. Everything is pretty much in one place -... More

Stopped here for one night as travelling through California. I don't think this building started out as a Holiday Inn Express I believe this building is very old but has been remodeled at some point.. We did arrive an hour early and told our room was not ready. OK. But it took two and half hours for it to be... More

This hotel has a great view of the harbor! The staff were all friendly and my suite was clean and spacious! This was probably one of the most noise free hotels I have ever stayed in! I am looking forward to my return trip and staying here. This hotel is also not to far from restaurants and some of the... More
