After living in this town for almost 15 years one might think I would have discovered this hotel before now. The truth be told, I did know of it, I just never made any effort to get to know it, and boy, what I have been missing.
A lovely oceanfront hotel, The Inn on the Beach has 3 floors of rooms from which to choose from. We stayed on the 2nd floor in room 208. Decorated in a victorian motif, we were given an end room which had a terrific view of the beach and of our local fairgrounds; the fair was in town the night we stayed so we sat out in the cool, moist air, sipping hot chocolate and watched the nightly firework show put on by the fair. Afterwards, we were a bit chilled from sitting out on the balcony, this is August and here in Ventura we are known for our foggy, cool summer days, so we turned on the fireplace, which also served as the heater for the room. We each took a bath in the jacuzzi tub and then climbed into the 7th heaven bed and watched the flames of the gas fireplace and listened to the surf hit the shore. Bliss...total relaxation!
7th heaven is a perfect name for these beds, I slept very well and awoke to the sound of the surf breaking on the shore right out side our door. We went to the breakfast room and brought back coffee, juice and muffins, opened the sliding door and sat down to eat our complimentary breakfast on the balcony. We also discovered a Ventura County Star newspaper had been delivered complimentary to our door. We read the paper cover to cover. The Inn on the Beach is Ventura's best kept secret!
I continued to relax. After breakfast, we still had time before we checked out so we took a little nap. When it came time to leave we were a bit disappopinted, that is until the clerk pointed out that during the fall and winter months the rates drop fairly low!! I believe I will make reservations now for Valentine's Day 2006!!
