We stayed here on a family road trip down the coast. We found this a quaint hotel in a renovated Spanish style building right next to the historic mission for around $100 in the peak summer seadon! Cosy lobby with fireplace and charming but small rooms. Great location right off Main Street! Near shops, restaurants and beach!! Breakfast in a... More

Old, sad and tired. Hitel room was very dirty, sheets had stains, blankets were frayed and had cigarette burns. A/c did not work and room was very musty smelling. Chipped paint everywhere and Ragged carpet. Looks like a vacuum hadn't been used behind the dresser over- filthy! So glad only one night! Park next door full of homeless and vagrants.... More

This hotel was perfect for a visit to Ventura. You can not beat the location. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We could see the mission from our window. The hotel is a bit older but it is kept very clean and decorated nicely.

It's one redeeming feature is location - 5 minutes to shops/restaurants etc and 10 minutes to the beach. We booked a larger twin bed room which was OK, but very old fashioned and a rather tired looking. The room was on the ground floor and the window faced a huge wooden fence bordering the adjacent park, so lacked natural light.... More

Disappointing visit. You can tell this was once a sweet little hotel but now she is tired and ill used. Hallways dirty, poor internet, very limited outlets, no charging capability, and the parking lot was so sketchy (high density of panhandling vagrants) that we elected to park our business truck on the street out front instead. We got a super... More

It's nothing fancy but it is very nice. People are really nice. Rooms are clean and really cute. We did not get any pictures, in hindsight we should have. Good location to downtown main street. Walking distance to Amigo's restaurant and the speedway down by the beach. It's not a 5 star but it is a great little gem! Small... More

Really cute small hotel in Ventura. We needed a place to stay and this fit the bill. We ended up in a room with a small patio. The only issue is as its near the beach the room smelled damp...musty...but it was clean and perfect for the nite. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed our stay. Would stay here... More

Small trip with Mom. She's uses a wheelchair, so this was a perfect place. Main street is only about 3 blocks, which made it possible for us to walk everywhere. (By the way, my Mother is 88yrs old and has been coming to Main St. in Ventura forever). She's a Thrift Store Junkie. Free breakfast was excellent and the Staff... More

Having stayed here twice in the past it was my hotel of choice for this years road trip. Very close to downtown with easy parking, there area does seem to attract its share of homeless persons, but we were never troubled by them. I hadn't booked....but needn't have worried as I think we may have been the only residents. Check... More

Our family stayed 3 nights in a room with 2 queens. We had a beautiful second floor view of the mission church and park. It's a great old property with a garden courtyard to connect the buildings. Breakfast was fabulous and filling with hot eggs, sausage, fruit and pastries in a beautiful atrium with large ficus trees. It's a unique... More
