My daughter and I stayed only one night at this hotel, so didn't use any of the amenities and didn't eat in the restaurant. The pool, hotel gym and restaurant areas looked clean though. Check in was easy and the staff was very friendly. Our ocean-facing room was large and well-appointed; however, it didn't look as clean as I would have expected for such an expensive hotel. There were handprints on the glass of the bathroom door, for example. Also, for such an expensive hotel, the only cups were styrofoam (not environmentally friendly) for the cheap coffee maker and there were no glasses. Parking was convenient to the hotel, but we were charged $8 for it (I don't understand why the hotel would charge for a service that should be provided for free). Within walking distance to a few restaurants and a short drive to many more. We would highly recommend the taco stand just down the beach from the hotel.
Spent the week at the Crown Plaza, Ventura Beach with my daughter. This hotel is right on the beach, the rooms are spacious and have balconies overlooking the Pacific and the view is spectacular. Best views are had from 5th floor and above.The hotel staff is amazing - gym, heated outdoor pool, restaurant, and patio available to guests. We looked at many other hotel options, nothing compares to the Crown Plaza. I would stay here again.
Staycation in California-we drove south from San Jose to avoid the smoke and high temperatures. Great decision.
Plenty of free parking, right on the beach and Paseo, minutes walk to downtown . Beautiful clean hotel, spotless, excellent staff front of house and restaurant for breakfast.
Heated swimming pool outside is a bonus, great views from most rooms. Swimming had to be reserved, towels provided at reception, however everyone’s keycard opened the gate, so 2 families who didn’t book invaded the pool , so we left. That was the only negative.
Highly recommend this hotel, most excellent stay, great place to visit for a few days, spotless clean rooms.
It wasn't that busy, so they let us check in early and check out late.
It is in an excellent location, for being a member with their card, we got an upgrade and a very nice room. Had view of the pool. Drinks are fine and their food was also good. We received 2 vouchers for breakfast which worth about $30. Very generous facility and enjoyed it. Our favorite hotel is Ventura right in front of beach.
Paid extra for “oceanview” but got room 1127 which is the last room on the 11th floor closest to the freeway and train tracks. Front desk told me ANY room above 5th floor is considered oceanview and there’s really no oceanfront rooms because the building does not directly face the ocean. It just doesn’t make sense to pay extra because almost all rooms count as oceanview anyway. I feel duped for spending extra only to get a freeway view and train noise every hour it seems. 4th floor rooms are dedicated to guests with dogs. They charge $75 dog fee.
Pool is by reservation only and with a 2 hour max due to covid. There’s no jacuzzi. Parking is $8 if a registered guest and $20 for day trippers to the beach.
There is a fridge, microwave and keurig. WiFi is steady.
