Pulled over here for the night last minute. Made reservation online, all went smoothly as usual. Booked a standard room which turned out to be quite large. Room was clean, shower was great, beds were comfy. Breakfast was typical; cheese 'omelet', sausage rounds, breads, pancakes, selection of cereals and yogurts. We have so far been very content with our Holiday Inn Express stays on this particular road trip.

Room Tip: Guest laundry and exercise room are on the third floor.

Nice little hotel for our roadtrip. Rooms have been recently renovated. Free breakfast was perfect before we set out on the road again. We ordered pizza from across the street, and it was decent. Didn't realize until the next morning that this hotel is like a block from the beach! Next time I would make a point to get here earlier so we could take advantage of the location!

I thought this was a great place as it was only about a 5 minute walk to the beach. The service was friendly and welcoming and the rooms were nicely remodeled. They were a decent size so our party of four (two adults, two teens) felt comfortable and not cramped. The beds were actually quite heavenly too. Sleep quality was excellent which is always a major plus when staying away from home. I would have given this property a five rating if it had not been for the continental breakfast we had. We all got sick after eating at the hotel. The four of us had stomach issues and that wasn't fun. Overall though, this is a nice place but maybe beware of the free breakfast. Who knows maybe it was just our luck the cook was having a bad day? In any case, there are a few places (not many) around the area to eat but if you have a car, I would suggest going over to the Channel Islands Harbor where there are plenty of nice places to eat with a view. It's less than a ten minute drive away.

The hotel is a 2, easy walk, blocks from the beach. The rooms have been redone and they look great. The breakfast and happy hour are satisfying and offer many choices. The pool area also received a redo. The furniture is nice, the pool and hot tub clean and inviting. We stay here often and were unsure of Holiday Inn take over of old Country Inn complex. The new site is still beach adjacent and the amenities are upgraded and welcoming. A nice location with nice amenities and furnishings.

We stayed one night over Memorial weekend, and despite being sold out, still received great service. The rooms have been newly renovated and have many excellent features. Here are a few that were of particular note:

1) Super quiet, but effective A/C unit
2) Top sheet both under and on top of duvet cover - nice touch
3) Good quality iron
4) Blow dryer has a permanent "on" switch, unlike some hotel dryers where you have to hold the button down the entire time you're using it.
5) Fresh fruit at breakfast
6) Nice shower head
7) Super friendly service!
8) Walking distance from the beach

We'll stay here again if we're in the area.

We very much enjoyed our stay in this hotel. It's very clean and the staff are courteous, friendly and very accommodating. It's newly acquired so everything still seems fresh. The area is nice and walking distance to the beach. We will definitely come back to this place. They have afternoon welcome snacks and refreshments and the breakfast is decent continental.

This hotel is strategically located in Venture/Oxnard/Port Hueneme area. My family stayed there for 2 nights over the Memorial weekend May 25-26,2013. It was crowded due to the Holiday. But the staff and even the customers were all friendly.

The best feature was the free breakfast everyday (all you can eat) that may cost you $15 per plate if you go out. Also, the free Happy Hour from 5-7pm everyday -margaritas, vodkas, you name it with samplers of carrots, celeries, etc... on the side. Wow! Can you believe this? The room a night was $109 - 2 beds, clean rooms, new carpetings, swimming pool, jacuzzi outdoor, small gym on 3rd floor with free bottled water. If it wasn't for the holiday, the price can go down to less than $100.

We went picnicking at Lake Casitas (30 minutes north) and sightseeing in Ojai (5 minutes from Lake Casitas). Good timing in Ojai - they had an Art and Music Festival Saturday, listened to all live jazz music and browse thru some local art galleries. Just so relaxing. Then the stress came when we went to the Camarillo Factory Outlets (10 minutes from the hotel). Couldn't find parking. I think all of LA were there. It was a great weekend.
