We stayed in Ventura for 3 nights at the end of August '08. We had previously visited Santa Barbara, which is lovely but the hotel prices seemed to have increased considerably. As an alternative we chose Ventura and were not disappointed. The hotel was easy to find and only an hour or so drive from LAX. It is a standard motel type complex with a self service buffet breakfast in the lobby/reception area. The breakfast was adequate with a waffle maker, pastries, cereal, fruit ,coffee and juice.
Our room was clean and as it was at the back of the complex, overlooked the freeway and in the distance the beach. We weren't too troubled by noise from the freeway, however there is also a railroad which runs right along side the freeway, on the hotel side, and when a train went past the whole room was shaken. Trains only went past a couple of times a day, but they did seem to go past about 3.30am. It didn't bother us too much, but it might be worth asking for a room at the side of the hotel if you are a very light sleeper!
Hotel is walking distance to the main street in Ventura where there are a good selection of bars and resturants. Also worth mentioning is the excellent wine tasting trip we took with Wine Edventures who picked us up from the hotel, took us round 3 wineries and a tasting room in the Santa Ynez valley area and then dropped us back at the hotel. Definitely a highlight of our vacation.
If you want good value accomodation, in a good location I'd recommend the Inn at Ventura and also Ventura itself.
