Very attractive and comfortable. Staff were very good and helpful. The rooms have been updated really, really well, and the lobby area is also up to snuff. Overall, a very comfortable experience, especially for casual and international travelers.

Stay here overnight after my wife's twin sisters 60th Birthday party at The Tavern We checked the rates on tripadvisor for comparable hotels. We have stayed here before and were always pleased and it was close to the venue and other attractions, shops, pier,& beach.

Wanted to stay somewhere close to the ocean in Ventura and settled on the Best Western because of it's close proximity to the Ventura pier. There is a Vagabond Inn and a Country Inn and Suites close by and from the outside they all look about the same. We settled on the Best Western because we perceived the rooms to... More

Just love how the owners have taken an old 50's motor inn and turned it into a very comfortable chic contemporary and comfortable hotel. Love how quiet the rooms were, even with 101 right behind it. Wonderful night's sleep. Will be using it again. Plenty of good restaurants walking distance. Close to the beach.

The people are friendly and the service is great but the beds were awful. We have stayed here every year for the surf contest for 5 years and the beds were fine. This year they remodeled and changed the mattresses, they are hard and noisy. If you need a good nights sleep you will need to go elsewhere.

We stayed here because we were attending a wedding in Carpinteria. We had reservations, which was a good thing due to a bike rally along the coast that weekend. I called the day before to ensure we would be able to check in early so we could change for the wedding. When I called, the gal I talked to couldn't... More

We were heading to the channel island early in the morning so needed somewhere to stay the night in Ventura, the place had a classic motel look to it and the room was very comfortable and clean. Break fast a little disappointing. Reception well polite and easy to deal with.

Dated property but they have improved some areas. Mainly the rooms have wood/laminate floors which is a HUGE plus over icky carpet. The A/C units are in an awkward spot making the area near the bathroom freezing while taking a long time for the rest of the room to cool down. Location is good for walking everywhere and we always... More
