“Free night with a twist”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Arrived @1:10PM for my free night and was told by the room clerk there was a $35 early check-in fee prior to 2PM. As an experienced traveler and Elite Gold member, I have never heard of such a fee and there was no mention of said fee on my room confirmation. I asked to speak with the manager and was told he was on property. Rather than pay this fee, I left and returned after 2PM to check in. Once again, I told the room clerk to tell the manager I wanted to speak with him urgently; NEVER SAW OR HEARD FROM THE MANAGER!! The room was comfortable, but small. We declined the Denny's breakfast alternative based on past experience with Denny's re food, service, cleanliness, etc. Needless to say, I would never stay at this property in Ventura again!

Dear dgpjap,
We are so sorry to hear about your experience. We greatly appreciate the continued loyalty our Elite Gold members bring the Choice brand and we would never wish to turn you away distressed. At Comfort Inn Ventura, our check-in time is set for 3:00 pm. We hope you will understand we have chosen to implement an early check-in fee at our facility because it is extremely challenging to have the rooms from the morning turned around and cleaned to our high standards by the afternoon. To provide our returning guest’s with a complimentary stay is a service we are happy to provide and we did not intend to surprise you with added fees. We appreciate that you took the time to bring this to our attention and we extend our apologies. We hope you will reconsider your recent experience and return to the Comfort Inn Ventura in the future.

Sincerely,
Comfort Inn Staff

While the hotel itself was okay, it was very difficult to drive into and out of as it was situated right at a busy freeway on and off ramp. Also, instead of the usual choice hotels breakfast, we were given vouchers for a Denny's about a block and a half away. The Denny's food was okay, but be prepared for slow morning service. Friday morning breakfast was really slow. Saturday's was a little better.

As far as nearby amenities and attractions, a state park beach was within walking distance, but along a busy street. Fast food restaurants and convenience stores were within a block or two.

Room Tip: Since the hotel is on a busy street by freeway ramps, guests may prefer second or third floor rooms...

Dear SunHope,
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry that you had a difficult time with navigating in and out of our parking lot. Although the corner we are situated on can become busy during high times of traffic, we find our location to be very advantageous. Quick access to the freeway, beach, the harbor, and downtown are all at our guest’s fingertips! Many travelers find this to be a great convenience when they are unfamiliar with the area or looking to save time. We are glad you had the opportunity to enjoy the nearby State park and we hope you enjoyed the promenade area as a whole! We’d like to invite you to return to Comfort Inn Ventura again soon.

Sincerely,
Comfort Inn Staff

My hubby booked the jacuzzi suite for our anniversary. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is very close to the beach and even though it is right off the freeway, the noise from the freeway didn't bother us at all. It was a great value and we loved that we got breakfast at Denny's.

Dear PamRiech,
Happy Anniversary to you and your husband! Our family of employees here at Comfort Inn Ventura loves to be a part of such special celebrations! As you noted, the neighboring freeway often arises concern in travelers regarding traffic noise. To put these worries to rest, we have installed double pane windows in every room which are incredibly successful at blocking out all exterior noise. Time and again we are rewarded with guest stories of what a quiet and restful night people experience. Thank you for taking the time to share with us and other travelers about your visit. We wish you and your husband many more happy years to come!

Warm wishes,
Comfort Inn Staff

We were driving on Highway 1 up the Coast and decided to stop in Ventura as it was dark. We called Comfort Inn and they had a room.
So we drove there. I should have guessed that this was not the spot for me when I walked into the lobby and it had a strange floral smell like a funeral home. But we booked a room. Again my mistake as I did not ask to see the room prior to paying for it. It was a Hadicapped Accessible room and there was not a tub but the shower just was a curtain with a floor drain. That in itself was not the worst but the silverfish bugs crawling around the floor drain were. We just bit the dust and went to bed as it was late. The Ad says breakfast was included. The hotel itself did not have breakfast but you got vouchers to the Denny's next door. It was the dirtiest Denny's I ever ate at. So as far as this place just keep on driving their are more hotels and motels up the road that looked nicer.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before you take it!!!!!

The hotel is basic, but very well kept, clean, and a great value. In addition, the staff were very friendly and helpful. And for runners, the hotel is a stone's throw from an outstanding running path by the beach. Throw in a free breakfast at Denny's across the street, free coffee/tea anytime, and a washer/dryer that actually works efficiently, you can't go wrong for the money. I would stay there again.

Dear RobertAlan11,
Thank you very much for using your personal time to leave us some positive feedback. We are so glad that you were able to take advantage of all of the amenities our facilities offer and as a result, thoroughly enjoyed your stay! As you highlighted, there is an awesome path only a block away from our hotel that parallels the beach. Not only is this a great source of exercise for runners, but it also caters to walkers, cyclists, beach volleyballers, and all various forms of recreation! We are excited to learn that you plan to return and we look forward being your hosts again!

Sincerely,
Comfort Inn Staff

If you plan on staying for more than a day I would suggest merriots, it's right across the street. The room it's self was not bad and i could live without a working jacuzzi but when it comes to sleep..... My bed was harder than a rock. I traveled to Ventura for my brothers wedding and planned on a 4 day tip, I didn't get a wink of sleep!!! Come morning I had to drink 4to 5 coffees to stay awake. It's 2 days after my trip today and I'm still recovering.

Room Tip: I'm never staying there again!

Dear Pavola46,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. We are deeply regretful to learn that you did not receive adequate rest in preparation for your brother’s wedding. Each of our rooms has been equipped with Serta pillow-top mattresses and it is disappointing to find these were not soft enough for your preference. We hope that despite your troubles, the ceremonies and weekend were still a joyful celebration. We hope you will remember the occasion with fond memories and the best of wishes to your brother and his new bride! Please contact our facilities if we may be of further assistance to you in the near future.

Sincerely,
Comfort Inn Ventura

The hotel was clean and the beds are very comfortable. I especially enjoyed the breakfast that was provided at Denny's accross the street. The price of the room was extreamly resonable.

The location was perfect for our journey to the Channel islands tour. I would recommend this trip to anyone who appreciates the beautiful ocean.

Room Tip: The lower rooms facing in & out burger was a little noisy

Dear Christine R,

Thank you for your kind words. We are very happy to hear that you felt the benefit of all of we have to offer at the Comfort Inn Ventura. We love to encourage visitors to our area to see the beautiful Channel Islands National Park. Our facility is very conveniently located about a mile up the road from the harbor where the boats depart, and it can be argued the islands are a must see! Our location has much else to offer as well as we are within walking distance from the beach, close to the freeway for travelers, and near the downtown area for shopping and dining. We are glad you enjoyed the complimentary restaurant breakfast we provide for all guests at the neighboring Denny’s. We hope to be your hosts again the next time you visit the ocean!

Kindly,
Comfort Inn Staff
