Casa Via Mar Inn and Tennis Club
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Port Hueneme
Reviewed June 28, 2014

This hotel is located off a boulevard. There are shops, restaurants, banks (ATMs), petrol stations nearby. The decor is old (perhaps from 1980s) but it didn't matter to us. We booked a room with 2 Queen beds and there were 3 of us. Each queen bed isn't really big enough for 2 adults and so we should have really got 1 King bed and 1 extra bed. The receptionist kindly upgraded us to a room with a kitchenette free of charge. The breakfast was satisfactory (scrambled eggs, cereal, toast, pastries, coffee, tea, milk, orange juice). There are also some very nice tennis courts which we did not use as we were just stopping here for the night on our road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. All in all, I would recommend this place. We paid £57 (we reserved through a UK website) for the night.

We stayed here recently based on reviews and the very decent price. With a couple of kids, we wanted something spacious at a reasonable price because it was a quick road trip stopover. We got exactly that.

The room was huge. Sure, it's dated, but clean and had everything we needed. Because it's an older place, the soundproofing was great. The staff were very friendly, and there's a great little Mexican restaurant right next to the hotel. A decent hot breakfast was included, and they had free donuts, coffee and juice in the office all day plus a happy hour each afternoon with super cheap drinks (I think $1 each?).

We hit the swimming pool, and guess what? Heated saltwater pool! Bonus! The kids had a blast and managed to burn off some energy.

An added bonus - it's within a 2 minute drive to a harbor area with very nice restaurants, and with a 5 minute drive to all other amenities that you might need - groceries, etc.

In short, this is not Ritz Carlton, but it's definitely very good value for money in a safe area. Perfect for what we needed.

Do not be fooled by the name, this property is an old-school motel. It is like being time-traveled back to the 1960s. There are some tennis courts at the back of the property, but I'm guessing that there is no actual tennis club.

Pros: The property is old, but reasonably well-maintained. The staff does a very nice job of keeping the motel clean. They offer a free breakfast: I didn't try it, but other people seemed pleased with it. There is ample free parking and complimentary coffee and donuts, as well as tea, cocoa and juice, available in the office. The staff was friendly.

Cons: The property is old and there is simply no disguising that fact. No matter how clean you make an old room, it is still old. It smells old. Old furnishings, old carpet, old bath fixtures. Bedding had holes in it, only one small pillow. The TV is an old CRT model from at least the 80s. There is no safe in the room, so if you have valuables take them with you. All rooms open to the outside. The area is kind of rundown and maybe not that safe at night.

We traveled with my grandson, who is too young to stay in a separate room alone. The motel has no roll-aways available and no extra bedding. I had to go to the store and buy an air mattress and bedding for him. So, if you have kids plan ahead or book more rooms.

In fairness, the property is generally well-reviewed and people staying there during my visit seemed to like things well-enough. It is not for me, though.

There are newer, nicer chain places in the area but this has the vibe of laid back CA. It's clean and friendly. The jacuzzi was perfect after a day out on the Channel Islands and the area was quiet and convenient to pier. Family member thought the late night folks were sketchy but I didn't notice any problems. Near naval base. Clean but old. Steps would be a challenge for handicapped.

Room Tip: if handicapped, ask for a ground level

Nice, clean rooms. Very good sleep quality. Front desk people quite friendly. Nice touch with fresh donuts always served in the reception area.
The breakfast is in a separate building on the second floor so if you are handicapped it would be difficult to get up the stairs.
The internet connection was rather weak in my room but I managed.
The location was excellent with lots of restaurants within walking range.
For Southern California, the rate was "reasonable" at $110 per nite through "booking.com"
This is a good price considering the quality of the hotel.
Definitely will come back again if the price holds.
