Hotel undergoing construction, refurbishing. Outside covered with scaffolding. Our initial room faced the Pacific, but also was next to the very noise 101 Freeway. Couldn't sleep the first night and had to change to a room across the hall the next morning. That made it better, but still a noisy hotel. Breakfasts were just average. Positive is that it is within walking distance to the town center with shops, restaurants and night life.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed at the Amanzi Hotel for our 44th wedding anniversary. The first room that they gave us overlooked the parking lot. Most of the room photos are from the first room. My husband was able to get our room switched to one that had a somewhat view of the ocean. Although we could see the ocean, we also had a the railroad bridge in our main view. This room had a balcony where we could sit. It is not spacious, but it is a place to look out. The balcony has two sliding windows to allow the breeze to come in. The room was very clean. Because our room overlooked the train track, we had the sound of the train during the day and early evening. If the train ran during the night, we most certainly did not hear it. Having the sound of the blaring horn is not as bad, because it is short lived. They have a happy hour in the evening, so the first night, they had hot wings and popcorn, plus free drinks. In the morning, they provided a hot meal which consisted of a croissant sandwich with cheese and sausage, omelet with cheese, hash browns, Belgian waffle, sausage, bacon, fresh fruit, yogurt, cold cereals, hot oatmeal, fresh fruit, etc. We were definitely full from the breakfast. Although we thought that the hotel was still pricey, it was a better price than hotels in the area.

Pros: Large room, two sinks, free parking, excellent location between the beach and downtown. Cons: Extremely loud construction noise (hotel exterior is being updated) beginning at 7:45 every morning except Sunday; sporadic housekeeping; weird breakfast arrangement where guests must ask for everything. Seems to be a holdover from the pandemic, which made sense in 2021, but is now just plain annoying.

We stayed in this hotel as a couple with our baby. There are a lot of good things about this hotel: it’s a short walk from the beach and promenade as well as downtown restaurants and shops. But there’s one major downside: freeway noise! The building overlooks highway 101 and the train tracks, so loud trucks, motorcycles, cars, and trains are going by all day and night. It is possible that rooms facing away from the highway (and therefore away from the ocean) are quieter. So just know whether that kind of noise will bother you. Other than that, we liked our double king suite and the complementary breakfast. It would have been nice if our room had a table in chairs — since we had a baby, we were eating a lot of take out but were sitting on the couch with it. Our fridge wasn’t cold, but they replaced it immediately. The room was clean enough.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We understand the noise can be an issue, especially with children, and recommend requesting a room on the city/mountain side of the hotel. It's always nice to know when our location and amenities make for a nice stay for our guests. Our team hopes to see you again when in Ventura so that you can experience a room away from the freeway. Thanks for choosing the Amanzi!

Don't let the exterior deter you from staying here. They haven't got to that yet, but the inside was an absolute surprise. The room was fresh, clean, and not lacking for anything. Management and staff were great. Professional, friendly, helpful, and courteous. Hot breakfast was good, and Thursday, Friday, and Saturday there is an afternoon snack with beer and wine provided. I will say, ask for a room facing the mountains rather than an ocean view side. The 101 freeway and the trains are between the property and the ocean. A shout out to Jason, who always went out of his way to make sure our week long stay was great!

Great service from staff. Comfortable beds, spacious rooms. The evening snack and drinks is a nice touch. Hot breakfast in the morning with lots of options. Good pressure with the shower. This is our third hotel we have stayed in on our road trip down the coast and it has been the best thus far.

The hotel room was clean, quiet, and comfortable, but one thing happened that left me with a poor impression of the staff. On the morning of our departure, I requested a late checkout of 1pm. The front desk clerk said no, so my boyfriend and I adjusted our morning plans to make sure we were out by Noon. Then at 11:45am, housekeeping knocked on our door wanting to turn it over. We were about packed up anyway, but we had the Do Not Disturb sign on the door handle and it wasn't even checkout time yet! (Couldn't housekeeping have started with a room that was vacated first?) I mentioned what happened to the front desk clerk as I dropped off the keycards, and I got a very weak, "I'm sorry." We'll probably stay again, but considering that the room was $313 with tax, we were just disappointed by the lack of hospitality.

We were very pleased with our stay. Very spacious room which was large enough to accommodate our local family when they visited on Father's Day. A large window that opened for fresh air - we had a mountain /parking lot view which was probably quieter than the freeway view. A decent breakfast in the morning that had good coffee (most important!). It's also a nice perk to also have a Happy Hour in the evening. Fantastic location for walking to shops & restaurants on Main St. , local breweries, the beach and pier, plus a local park that we enjoyed. Plenty of free parking for our visitors too.
