Not happy with my fellow Trip Advisor contributors who have rated this place above "Terrible"! The photographer for this place should get an award. So much worse than it looks on the web site. Office was filthy! A disheveled woman step out from a darkened room into the reception area to check us in. Pleasant, but looked like she just rolled out of bed. There were Sketchy guys hanging out and smoking on the 2nd floor balcony, which just happened to be where our room was, #206.
We enter the room and wanted to turn and run! The smell! the dirty walls! We told ourselves it was only for 1 night, and decided to stay. We began to settle in and found what looked like, fried chicken pieces on the filthy carpet, several crumpled tissues under the bed, a filthy tv, grungy bed spread, cigarette holes in the blankets and dirty sheets. After about 15 minutes of try to convince ourselves we'd be OK, we called the front desk and asked to check out without a charge. After some discussion, she relented and let us go. We got in our car a noticed a man sitting on the parking lot curbing, 10 feet from our car smoking a crack pipe. Couldn't get out of their fast enough! Worst place we've ever "almost" stayed, EVER! Checked in to a Comfort Inn, a few miles away where we have a reservation for tomorrow night. Kenya, at the Comfort Inn was able to accommodate us at a reduced rate after she heard of our horror story at Victoria Motel.
(I will review The Comfort Inn, Ventura CA after our stay)
At $69, the Victoria Motel is a rip off! Even if they offered us a free night, we wouldn't stay here! Horrible, horrible, horrible!!!

We had to stop on our way to LA and and this motel was just on the road. Rooms are clean and renovated. Bed soft and comfortable. They serve some coffee in the reception. In overall it was good value for money.

I've stayed here several times in the past & it was fine but not this time! This time it appears 2 older family members have appeared from somewhere who seem to go out of their way to make you feel uncomfortable & just super rude with absolutely no social skills what's so ever, I walked into the lobby & the old man just glares at me, says nothing & walks away! when he passes me by on the outside he snickers under his breath & again says nothing, like a normal person would say hello but instead its just a big creepy vibe & the wife of the elderly man is no better she just will stare at you like you doing something wrong...they will never say hello or treat you like a human being, there were other creepy incidents but I'll just leave it at that...& don't leave anything in the rooms cause housekeeping will not turn it in...I left a pair of prescription reading glasses that I paid $100. & based on my follow up calls it looks like no one had the decency to turn them in....I will not be staying here again nor will I recommend it which is ashamed because it had potential..btw,The younger couple are nice but they gotta do something about the 2 older ppl who behave so negatively towards the customers & hire a more honest cleaning staff its just cost them some business...

Room Tip: If you want internet service don't stay in room #105...

Nice clean newly renovated room with a comfortable bed. Interesting in that it featured a flat screen television, microwave, and refrigerator but no coffee pot or hairdryer. There was an ironing board but no iron. Overall a good value.

Found deal on Internet, 2350 S Victoria Ave (located off Victoria Ave behind rental company). Includes fridge, microwave, A/C, cable TV, comfortable king bed, very simple continental breakfast, not too close to downtown or harbor but easy drive, cheap place in Ventura but OK if looking for a deal

Room Tip: Ask for non-smoking in back

After finding motels in Santa Barbara too expensive for one night we decided to give this motel a try based on TA reviews. The exterior seemed well cared for and the room was clean and comfortable with a massive wall mounted TV. The bathroom looked new with the sink in a large worktop outside. The only thing I would fault it on was that the bedspreads were a little tired and the furniture a bit shabby.

Having travelled across the US, the price of this was what we had been paying for a Super 8 / Days Inn on previous days. This was adequate, clean, convenient, but possibly not as good as one of these. It served its purpose.
