He's in the navy and stationed nearby, so this motel was a great find for us as it is conveniently located about 20 minutes from his base and close to the beach as well as downtown Ventura. We had an excellent experience. The outside... More

Seems like they just remodeled the rooms that is a bonus means owner cares. I was not going to pay $250 at the places down the street. I... More

We had an upgraded room which was huge and recently refurbished. No complaints on cleanliness or size of room which was quiet and at back of motel. Lady at reception was incredibly helpful - providing a corkscrew to using tv and local knowledge. For the price overall package was hard to beat.

This little motel is right on the road, but was very quiet, adequate parking and beautiful newly renovated rooms. Morning coffee and directions were greatly appreciated. The managers, a young professional couple were very sweet. I highly recommend
