Chose this hotel due to the price and I was not disappointed. The room was nice and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was nice as were the staff. The only problem I had was getting there. The turnoff was a little hard for me to find. Still, I would stay there again.

We had a stop in Ventura and stayed at this hotel. The location was perfect, between downtown and the beach. We could keep our car parked during our stay and enjoy Ventura. The staff was very friendly and everything was included in the rate. Coffee, WiFi, breakfast and a glas of wine before dinner. A lovely and spacious room with... More

I was quoted $143 for both nights , mentioned it at check in & check out, because it was $50 cheaper than previous visits, and never told otherwise, then handed... More

After reading the reviews, I wasn't sure how the hotel would be. To my relief, the hotel was just fine. The room is large and the bed comfortable. The only downfall I really find is the highway outside. You can hear the road noise but it's not bad. I don't think any weary traveler would be disappointed. There's even a... More

TV malfunction that I had to purchase a cable and fix myself and front desk clerk "Allan" was immature and made sure I knew his name and said" it must be your fault" and offered no maintenance to check it out plus A/C was loud and noisy.
