Stayed here during the Strawberry Festival. I'm a fan of HI and this property did not disappoint. Check-in was easy, they accommodated my request for a corner room on the 3rd floor with no problems. Our room was HUGE! We had a gorgeous view of the harbor and the ocean and as a result, we saw stunning sunsets and sunrises.... More

The normal routine for us: me, wife, two kids - a weekend away. We chose Ventura since it had been many years and the memories had that rosy tinge. And the memories were right! Ventura is a great little weekender. But... If you're going to visit the hamlet of Ventura, this isn't the best place to stay. If you have... More

3 is just about spot on here. Went for a labor day holiday with another family. THE GOOD: Wi-fi strong Friendly check in I loved the firm beds that keep your back aligned, no sinking/soft quick-sandy areas...FINALLY. Had pillows labeled "soft" or "firm", who does that? That was cool. Did not find one single hair on the beds, very clean... More

This place is all about view and location! It sucks that the pool and jacuzzi are at the hotel across the street. And, every so often you get a whiff of sewage, so there's that... Avoid the rooms directly in front of the elevators--too noisy.

We used this for a day away at the ocean and enjoyed the walk along the harbor, the boats in the harbor, restaurants and shops. The hotel had a restaurant close by which was OK but compared to the other options I would recommend taking a lovely walk.

This place is great. I didn't start but one night so I can't comment on amenities. I think they charge $10 for parking each day (there was a sign) but they didn't charge me (because I'm an IHG Premier Member maybe?) and they have bikes available for rent. The room was clean and comfortable. Got a great night of sleep.... More

The negative: 1) Weird lighting...quite dim with a switch for the bedside table which required you to get up out of bed, walk to the door and pull out a card. 2) The dining room is very small and most of us had to eat at an outside patio exposed to the elements. 3) When we checked in the man...

In our travels, we stay in almost all levels of accommodations. We like the Holiday Inn Express because they are consistent in the basics that you get - clean, comfortable, adequate-to-good breakfast, generally reasonably priced. This facility delivered all of that and had a nice location adjacent to the south end of the Ventura Harbor marina. It’s within walking distance... More

The hotel overall was average. Nothing extravagant but certainly not poor. I had a nice suite with Harbor view. The room was clean and "somewhat" comfortable. My only negative was certainly the bed. It was old, squeaky, and I could feel the springs as I tossed and turned. It was not comfortable at all and I didn't get a goodnight's... More

The hotel is conveniently located in the Ventura harbor area. If you are taking one of the boats to see the Channel Islands you will still need to drive to a different parking lot, walking is too far. Hotel looked nice from the outside but from the inside was run down. Also, parking fees are being charged in addition to... More
