Amanzi Hotel

Reviewed April 21, 2014

This hotel has large, comfortable rooms. There was a small fridge and microwave in the 2 queen room we had. Some of the decor was a bit dated but everything was very clean. Breakfast had plenty of hot and cold offerings.There is a noisier freeway side, try to get the other side if you sleep lightly. The one complaint we, and many other guests, had during our stay was the internet service was down in the rooms and spotty in the lobby - when we stopped again 2 weeks later on our way home, nothing had changed.
We found the location very convenient to the beach, a 4 block easy walk for us.

Cannot beat the location, walking distance from town and tons of restaurants. The hotel is clean and their free breakfast is good. On top of that, their rates are quite good.

Staff was quite helpful upon check-in and after as well. Not much to say about a well run hotel so will keep this review short. Keep up the good work.

We stayed three nights during spring break. After walking across the freeway, I was so upset I hadn't booked the hotel on the beach. The walk to the beach was not as easy as we thought it would be. It would've been so much nicer to be closer. The pool was unbearable due to the freeway noise, even for our teenage kid, such a bummer. The breakfast & happy hour were hotel's saving grace. But I'd rather buy breakfast & a few drinks than stay here next time! Spend a few more dollars & stay somewhere better!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at country inn. Great location, you can walk to downtown, the beach and most of the restaurants. Nice happy hour and full hot breakfast We had an ocean view rm w/ 2 queens. The beds were more comfy than the king on our last trip. Try Lure Fish House. Outstanding !

We stayed here on our way home from San Simeon because it was $69 versus a higher rate at the Best Western next door.It is a tight space where you unload your luggage in front of the hotel. The one bad thing is the small elevator that services all three floors and the parking garage too.You may have to wait a while.The room was very large and faced the ocean. It is not that easy to get to. You go down the street,turn right, go down a block, cross the RR tracks, go on bridge over the freeway and walk block or so to the beach. The train goes by often and the freeway is loud too.

You get a free breakfast here.They offer bacon, eggs,sausage, potatoes, fruit, etc.In the evening they have snacks and beer, wine or sodas in small cups. You get 2 drinks per person.

I have stayed at the Best Western next door before but sometimes it is high during peak seasons. I think next time I would stay closer to the marina near the Channel Island Visitor Center.

The hotel is in a prime location in downtown Ventura. Walking distance to nearby attractions, restaurants and nightlife. The included breakfast is rather good, and the rooms are large and comfortable. There is a nearby rail bridge that can cause quite a bit of noise and actually shook our windows, but that's hardly the hotel's fault. I would say that the service could have been more polite, since some actually bordered on rude. However, I don't ask for much out of hotels except a clean, quiet place to lay down for the night, and this spot certainly fits the bill.

Had a great overnight stay here with my friend when we went for a mini vacation in Ventura Beach. It wasn't a new hotel but the you can tell that it's really clean and they keep it tidy. It was walking distance to the beach which is why we booked it.

the amenities are great considering the price. We had a big LCD TV (56-inch, i believe). We got the 2 queen-bed room and the space was great. We had a hair dryer, a safe, fridge and hot iron.

I love their complimentary breakfast too. Good money on the price of our stay.

Definitely recommended!
