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

Our recent stay at the Great Western Plus Inn of Ventura began uneventful , but when we entered the room I was so pleased with the decor, cleanliness and layout of the room. When morning arrived, I wanted to sleep in, even knowing that I would miss the hot breakfast, but I work so hard throughout the week I needed... More

Staff was helpful and courteous. Room was clean and functional; A/C was quiet and effective. Unlike other properties, this was the best available since enjoyed being closer to downtown but within easy walking distance of the beach.

We love this hotel because its proximity to all the fun downtown. The rooms are always clean and well taken care of. They were having some renovations done while we were there, but that did not deter from our trip at all.

Second stay at this property. This time was upgraded to a King Bed room with ocean view. Very nice amenities (ductless a/c and recent renovations) however this room was right next to the railroad tracks and several passing trains shook the bed. I did not have a problem, but something to consider if your'e a light sleeper. Short walk to... More

Discovered the lovely Ventura shoreline while waiting for our room to be ready. Close enough to walk to from the hotel. Excellent eating places on the beach. Looks like there are extensive renovations going on, being upgraded, hence the plain appearance on the outside. Location was close enough to walk to the downtown area.
