Usually love La Quinta because they are so good about taking pets, but this one is right off the freeway, across from the cemetary. We kept driving.....

Booked 2 rooms over the Memorial weekend when none available further north to Santa Barbara. Pleasant with nice decor. Quiet although in the morning you could hear kids running in the halls (we were close to the ice machine and stairs). The room was clean and had the basics. My mom mentioned that there wasn't any lotion bottle. The bathroom didn't have a ventilation fan so how do they keep the molds and smell out? Had the standard continental breakfast with the waffles being the hit item. Overall a satisfied stay.

I had booked this hotel through AAA.com which I learned later never, never, never ever to do again. AAA uses travelocity as a middle man and of course you have to pay extra for the services. What's worse is that there is a $25 cancellation fee unlike all other hotels. Next time I'll go directly to hotel's website, get the AAA rate and save!

We booked 2 rooms and while the first seemed reasonable the second was not. Dirty or stained linens are not acceptable nor are inadequate cleaning.
The room with the king bed was well worth the price. It was neither more than expected or less,however the room with the double beds was not clean. It was much below the standards I would expect for a 3 diamond rated hotel,so was the "heated pool" which was at best cool if not cold. You should not state that you have a heated pool if it is not and it was not.
The breakfast provided was very good.
Overal I would reccomend this hotel for the price with the king room.

This hotel was amazing at giving us a same day reservation. We had a horrible night at the Motel 6 down the street and called around to change hotels, this hotel was the best!!! their rooms were very clean, the continental breakfast was delicious.......the kids enjoyed making their own waffles. The pool was clean and refreshing. We would definitely come back to this hotel if we were in the area. Well worth the extra money we paid for the room.

  • Liked — the rooms and the breakfast.
  • Disliked — everything is perfect.

Worst La Quinta we ever stayed at.
Terrible odor outside the hotel. Check in they never told us the internet wasn't working.
Walked around the inn with my laptop and couldn't find any workable signal even in the office.
Truth be known, high speed internet has never been turn on at LaQuinta Ventura
Older building with old furniture,smell of dogs in the room. Beds were extremely worn and uncomfortable.
Breakfast was awful: coffee was weak and pastries were stale. Best part of the stay was leaving!

We would never return to this dump!

This hotel is great for a one night stay. It is comfortable and spacious and the continental breakfast was great. The staff were extremely friendly. The location was a little strange and as we had no car, the only option for food was the gas station next door or to order pizza (which we did). I would stay there again.

We stayed here for one night on a driving tour of the West, La Quinta being one of the few places which will accept small pets. The room was clean, bright and spacious, a very welcome surprise from what you expect (and often get) at most La Quinta's. We had some problems with the TV when we first checked in, and someone came to the room to correct the problem almost immediately after calling the front desk to report it.

Very convenient freeway access but still quiet. About 10 min. drive to Channel Islands, etc. All in all, a good experience with La Quinta.
