“Fabulous Location- Great Hotel Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2011

This is the only hotel I know of in California that is right on the beach. Every room that I have stayed in at this hotel has a great beach view and you can hear and see the waves come in. The staff is super nice. The hotel restaurant (which for some inexplicable reason is always deserted) is sooo good. The menu is always interesting and delicious- we look forward to eating there every time we stay there. Yeah, the bathroom is a little small- but other than that the rooms are pretty nice. Just make sure you ask for a room furthest to the ocean- as the train is kinda loud at night!! But the location IS worth it.

This hotel would be a $400-500.00 a night room if it was in Southern California. If you are ever going to stay in the Ventura area; stay at this hotel. The views from the west/north side of the tower are unbelievable! Try to make sure you get a room on the west/north side of the hotel to watch the sunsets. You are literally right on the water overlooking one of California's top surf spots as well and if the wind is up you can watch numerous kite surfers. The hotel is older, but for the price, you cannot beat this hotel due to the location. The onsite restaurant and bar have excellent food, service is adequate, but the food makes up for it.

I travel to Southern California several time a year and have always found my stays at the Crowne Plaza Ventura to be excellent. The views on the beach are great, all the staff greets me with smiles and many know my name. The lounge and restaurant have always helped me wind down after a day of business meetings. Great food, local flavor on the menu and served by great people. I'll continue to stay here for all my travel to SoCal.

My girlfriend and I checked into this hotel on a little weekend getaway from Newport Beach. From start to finish, we have a wonderful stay. Right from the beginning, from a friendly bellman assisting us with bags and recommendations of the local area, to a friendly clerk who checked us in, to a lovely room with outstanding views (Which every room has) right down to the pleasant open airy lobby with beautiful ocean views. The hotel is in walking distance to downtown Ventura, which is peppered with artsy shops and quaint restaurants. In addition to this, we always notice how friendly the locals are from Ventura. We really didn’t want this weekend to end! We’re thinking of returning later this month.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the North facing side.

We stayed here for 1 night as a stop over on the way to 6 Flags. Our rooms were fine and both had balconies overlooking the beach / Ocean. the hotel was very busy on the Saturday night but there was enough room for everyone. Decent sized bar and outdoor drinking area. Free parking also provided. Unfortunately Ventura beach didn't have a lot to offer but it was very nice and relaxing despite the highway behind the hotel.
Lifts were a bit slow.

Thank you Crowne Plaza for having such wonderful staff. Gabbi was extremely helpful with all our accommodations. She assisted us in planning our daytime activities as well as suggestions on dining. Her pleasant demeanor and high level of professionalism was amazing. Because of her; we WILL be back. Thank you Gabbi!

We really enjoyed ourselfs, We took a cab to down town main street really enjoyed all the little shops. We had dinner at My Florist Winecafe off of Oak street, food and service was great. After dinner we had a nice walk back to the hotel stoping at bombays for a drink and listen to some music. When we got back to the hotel we went outside the Agua Bar and enjoyed listening to the waves hitting the surf, the only thing between us and the ocean was the promanade pretty awsom. Got up the next morning to here the surf from our balcony, and looking out at the ocean in the morning was pretty cool. We enjoyed our breakfast at C Street down stairs. Enjoyed a walk on the promanade after breakfast the view is exceptional you can see the Islands on a clear day, and it was that day. All and all we had a great time the cost was reasonable well worth the stay if only for one night. Cant wait to come back and spend more time.

PS also pet friendly we enjoyed having our little zolchi with us

Room Tip: We were on the northside But both side are good
