This is a Holiday Express, so there is free (and very good) continetal breakfast included in the rate. Very very good value! The location is very pleasant, quiet, clean, etc. And the staff was super friendly! You want to arrive before 9 PM though, as your dinner options pretty much disappear after that.

this location just became a Holiday Express this year. I have stayed at surrounding locations and this was my first time here. It was very pleasant, quiet, clean, etc. The staff was very friendly and I enjoyed visiting with Michael. Some of the rooms only have showers so you want to make sure you request a room with a bathtub if that is your preference.

The front desk staff are nice and friendly. The tv in the room is just okay. Very limited selection of channels. The bed was a little firm but was okay to sleep on. The breakfast selection is just okay. Would have rather gone out for breakfast. Which we did one morning. I didn't use the internet so can't comment on that. The shower was fine. Didn't use the fitness center or the pool. This hotel has potential to be a great hotel.

This place is perfect! I usually stay in Ventura, but thought that we'd try something new and we decided to go with this hotel. We arrived today, 03/24/13 and the two individuals at the front desk were super nice and made us feel very welcome.
Our room is very spacious which is perfect because we bring along our Jillian Michaels work out DVD and there is plenty of extra room for us to work out. We even bring our weights and the young man at the front desk offered to carry them up to our room for us; and that isn’t even his job!
The beach is only two blocks down the road so we went down to the beach and the pier to watch the sunset. The beach was huge and though there were a lot of people there, it was very quiet and relaxing. There are a bunch of yummy restaurants to eat at, and if I could recommend something to you it would be The Fisherman's Catch! Super yummy!
The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are big, there are extra chairs in the room and a spot to sit and do you work if need be…honestly for the price, this place is great!

Very few negatives to say about this place. I will do them first. The neighborhood is not the best in the area but I did not feel uncomfortable outside the hotel. Not many places to eat in walking distance. The exterior is dated but matches the other buildings in the neighborhood. One of the treadmills were broken (I have not figure out how to run or walk on two at the same time, plus you're in CA go outside).

Good- The staff was great! Unlike many of the other remodelled hotels around the country they actually did a great job. Room smelled clean. WIFI was strong in the room, lobby and fitness area. Workout room has 2 treadmills and 2 bike (still waiting of weights at Holiday inn one set of changable weight dumbells is all that is needed). Free Arrowhead bottled water in the fitness room and dysinfectant wipes. 2 blocks from the beach I had a great run even though it was raining. Rate was best in the area and much better accomidations than many.

I will stay here over Crown Plaza in Ventura and Holiday Inn Camarillo everytime this one is a winner

While traveling on business, i had the opportunity to stay here. Hotel is completely remodeled, and an amazing place to stay. Rooms are quiet, and friendly, and prices were affordable. Take the time to walk the two blocks to the beach, you will NOT regret it.

My husband and I have lived just down the block from this hotel for 3 1/2 yrs. We've had friends stay there and they were very pleased with the Hotel. Our Election Voting Poll is located in one of the meeting rooms so we've been inside many times and it is a very nicely decorated, clean, classy hotel. Our friends said they were very impressed with the breakfast; that it was delicious and plentiful. Port Hueneme is a quiet, attractive beach community; we have always felt quite safe walking around the beach and the neighborhoods, day or night. We've also watched the progress of the renovation and quite frankly been blown away that everything is being replaced, even tho it looked pretty good the way it was to us!! The absolute best thing about Port Hueneme is that it is so peaceful and the beach is not crowded. We're a little off the beaten path-- and we like it that way-- but it's only 5 minutes to Oxnard Marina with restaurants and shops, 10 minutes to downtown Oxnard, and 10-15 minutes to downtown Ventura. We are also only a mile from the huge Ventura Navy Base which houses the U.S. Seabee Museum and about 6 miles from Ventura Harbor and the National Park Visitors' Center for the Channel Islands, which are visible from the beaches. We feel sure, from what we've seen, this Hotel will be even better than it has been when they fully re-open as Holiday Inn Express.

Room Tip: This is a very quiet community so I would say they are all good locations.
