We flew to LA on a whim, rented a car and surfed the internet for a room. This was a pleasant surprise an hour outside of LA. The price was reasonable and the beds are comfortable. We were on an upper floor. We did have noise form the train. But we were not in the room much. There is a... More

Love the Crown Plaza. Clean Rooms and friendly staff. Everyone is so pleasant and helpful. You can't beat the location. Just a short walk to old town Ventura. Steps away from the Pier. Rooms have been remodeled and are very nice. Great Mexican restaurant in main lobby and a great happy hour

I've been to this hotel a few times in the past 30 years and had fond memories. I recently spent a night with a friend because I remembered the great location. And it is wonderful. The pros: Great views from your balcony, easy walk to pier, restaurants and beach. The room was fine, had 2 double beds which were VERY... More

The Hotel is very good for a short stay. The area surrounding it needs some improvement from the city. Request a room locate on the high floors and facing West (the parking lot). They have an outdoor pool. The breakfast buffet is very good.

Located right next to the beach with views of the ocean. There is a boardwalk adjacent to the hotel and they offer bike and surrey rentals which we took advantage of. The hotel rooms are a bit run down and dated, but it looks they are in the process of updating the rooms as they had displays of the new... More

For our 55th anniversary, we only had time for a one night stay not far from home. We got a pretty good deal at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on the beach in Ventura, which is only 30 miles south of Santa Barbara where we live. When we checked in, I mentioned it was our anniversary, and the wonderful lady spent... More

Back for the fourth time with my art group....two weeks, a really enjoyable stay..the front desk and reservations really took care of us and made sure we were allocated good rooms. Wonderful linens, towels, shampoos and housekeeping. Even with the train & freeway noise, it really is a well positioned hotel, west facing rooms overlooking the ocean. My only disappointment...

There is plenty of good and plenty of not so good stuff about the Crowne Plaza hotel in Ventura. The location is great. The hotel sits pretty much right on the beach and it is a short stroll from the downtown and the pier. It's very noisy which is probably true of all the properties in the vicinity. The hotel...

The view was great but the place is old. Really needs renovation. Although it is old, the rooms were clean. The place is close to town. The staff were okay. I was maybe expecting more from this hotel chain.
