Nice location and view of the sailboats in the harbor. The staff here is tremendous, well tenured, even the younger ones have been here for a few years, and they are all knowledgable, efficient and genuinely nice. My favorite Hampton Inn, hands down.

I stayed in this place for one night and was pleasantly surprised by the upkeep on the property. The rooms are "standard" Hampton Inn so there are no surprises as far as that's concerned. They offer a free breakfast but the food is not great.
You have a few options when it comes to the location of the rooms. I was alone so I selected the less expensive room looking out to the parking lot. If you're with someone "special" I suggest you get the room with the marina view. Regardless of your choice, both have a small balcony that sits two comfortably. I'm sorry now that I did not select marina view.

It may or may not have been the day but the place was quiet and peaceful. Although I saw a few children around they were all very well behaved and were probably saving their energy for outdoor play. That reminds me, there is also a park right next door with picnic tables etc.which is owned by the city. There is a walkway that runs for a fair distance on the marina side which I did not follow (but looked inviting). If you ride a bicycle I'll bet you can have a lot of fun. On the other side of the marina (and waterway) is a large area that has a number of shops. I believe you can also find a boat that goes to the Channel Islands at that point.

Considering that I was at this hotel in June I think the price was reasonable. Hampton Inns provide breakfast for free. [In this case, the free food is worth every cent.]

I would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: The marina view is the best location but it costs more.

The Chief wants to give you choices this summer. This one will score you many points!!
This hotel is located adjacent to the harbor. Next to it is a great city park with a play area for little kids, and two good tennis courts. The hotel is efficient, breakfast good and location right on.
There is a family pizza place within walking distance, beer and wine. Be on the lookout mid July,you may meet Cowboy players there.
My family enjoyed the clean well appointed rooms.Easy walking around the harbor, you can see a great fish place and wine bar on the other side of the harbor.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room harbor side ...better view

Hello ChieffromCali:
What a great review, certainly appreciated, we are all glad you enjoyed your stay and you are absolutely right... the Cowboys are coming to town once again for their training and will be in the area in mid July for a few weeks, with some exhibitions and opportunities to see your favorite players. Looking forward to your next stay,

The Hampton Inn in Oxnard Shores is a terrific value for the money. For $125/nt. (AAA rate) we were able to get a nice room with a terrace and view of the harbor. In addition, the breakfast and parking are free and you will be ideally located in the nicest part of Oxnard. The staff was friendly and very quick to respond to our requests-something not always done at hotels costing 2 or 3 times more. It's not luxurious here but it is a great value and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Pay the few extra $$ and get a marina view-well worth it.

Expedia reservations were simple. When we arrived everything was in order. Desk staff was very friendly. The decor was nice-looking all the way around. Our room was quite pleasant and had a nice view of the harbor. The included breakfast had a variety of choices and tasted pretty decent.
Negatives aren't many, but include: amazingly lumpy comforters, and it was the same in my parents' room down the hall. They seemed to be clean but maybe had been laundered too roughly. Mattresses weren't the greatest. The hallway door transmitted too much noise: we were woken up more than once by passing groups of chattering people and doors slamming. The door closers could be softer operating. I was thinking that sitting in the jacuzzi sounded good, but found that there wasn't one available.

Room Tip: Go for the harbor view if you can. The parking lot view isn't terrible, but the harbor is very...

Dear LaurT:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers, we do appreciate your ratings and comments. I want to apologize for the lumpiness in your duvets, yes we do launder them each time a guest leaves and will discuss with the department head the issue, the mattresses we use are the required by the Hilton Brand, however I have to say that the brand does listen and make changes if necessary based on guest comments/reviews.
Thank you again for your review and look forward to your next stay with us,

I had some business meetings in Oxnard, so we decided to combine business with a little beach time. We were looking for something close to the beach/marina that was affordable - this Hampton was a great choice for us.

Very affordable! The rooms and public areas were clean, comfortable and well maintained and our room had a beautiful view of the marina. The breakfast was outstanding - lots of options, both hot and cold.

There's a beautiful little park adjacent to the hotel, or the beach is 3 minutes by car/15 minutes on foot (and the beaches in Oxnard are NOT to be missed-gorgeous!)

This was a great choice for us.

Excellent stay and great breeze - makes going back there something to look forward to! every room has a balcony very nice. Pool looked nice although I couldn't go. Rooms were clean and the view of the Marina was great. A little out of the way but if you are going to the beach it is close.
