The first night it wasn't available but the following night we had the room we requested. The property is older. Clean room. Clean bathroom. The first room was...

We stayed two nights and had a great time. Staff was amazing. We had two rooms and we all said we would come back. Right on the harbor. Really great for a weekend getaway. Even walked over to the Four Points for drinks one night. Very easy and a lot of fun.

We were quite pleased with our decision to book here. Seems others had a different take, but our stay was very pleasant. Many of our plans centered on the Channel Islands National Park, and this hotel is right by the pier that provides access to the Park. There are many restaurants in the Harbor Village, as well as the National...

My friend and I went to the Holiday Inn’s website and booked a room with a Harbor View for 3 nights. When we arrived, we were told that we had a room with a view of…a brick wall instead. We paid $10/night extra for the room with a view, but all we were told was “we’re sold out…there’s nothing we...

Ok - went to this hotel as we were going on a "Scarlet Bell" wedding cruise of which I will review next. This hotel is fairly nicely located at the marina. The view off our balcony was nice. The dead fish smell was a little overwhelming when we arrived. The lobby was small and outdated as was the entire hotel....

We stayed at the hotel on a recent visit to Ventura and Channel Islands. The location facing the Ventura harbor was beautiful. Be sure to ask for a room facing the harbor. Our balcony was clean and had a couple chairs and a table. The walk around the harbor to the village area with many restaurants was interesting since you...

I felt like I paid too much for a one night stay. The bed was ok....room was clean...very basic...dated with some renovations done. But there was an old, musky smell. Breakfast was ok but nowhere to sit....plus parking was extra $10 a day....really????

Positives- The front desk staff and all the staff were extremely friendly. The room was spacious with a nice view of the marina and a nice balcony. The breakfast is better than most similar hotels. Negatives- Instead of having a bathroom fan, they have a vented window out to the external hallway. So, anyone in the hallway will be able...

I stayed at the HIE as a base for visiting the Channel Islands. Clean rooms, gorgeous views and friendly staff. The hot breakfast was a plus . I would like to see better access to the pool. You have to go next door for the hot tub and pool. Will stay there again on my next trip to Ventura.
