Carlsbad, California
Reviewed 7 August 2015

Outside of hotel a bit dated but the interiors are nice. It's within walking distance to everything you could want, though the neighborhood behind motel is a bit shaky and park across the street is a haven for the homeless. Did not have any issues however. We've stayed here before in our travels from Carlsbad. My husband enjoys it since...

Reviewed 6 August 2015

We spent 2 nights in this Ventura hotel, frankly because we wanted to visit Santa Barbara but the hotels there were too expensive. Upon arrival, we were somewhat taken back by the exterior - looking outdated and in need of some maintenance. Once in our room, we were reassured. Rooms are clear, spacious and luxurious. The beach, with some nice...

The best thing about this simple Inn is its location. Being two and one-half blocks from the town center it offers easy access to many good restaurants, antique stores, and the local charm of Ventura. It doesn't hurt either that the city pier and beaches are well within walking distance from the property. Though not luxurious by any standard, rooms...

Thank you Peter K for your review! Its true we are alongside the railroad like neighboring hotels in this area. But we do find that if you request a room towards front of the hotel you are less likely to hear it. The train does not bother most and the rooms in the back with an ocean view are our...

Reviewed 5 August 2015

The staff and front desk were friendly and accommodating. One night during our stay, someone had tried to break into our rental car. We asked for the manager (Carlos ?) who was always onsite, but never responded to three requests in two days, to get in touch with us so we could look at the security cameras. Carlos could learn...

Beware if you don't like to hear the trains which go by a lot. It doesn't bother us a bit as we can hear trains go through our town. This train is about 40 feet away from the back of the motel so I thought I'd put it out there. We loved this place and will be back. They are...

Nice that we were able to check in early at 1 p.m. Room very clean. Liked the set-up of the room. Roll away was available for our daughter. Very friendly staff. Continental breakfast was good. Fairly quiet on the upstairs level.

Lancaster, United States
Reviewed 23 July 2015

If you want the basics and a comfortable stay close to beaches and downtown, this is a nice place. The free breakfast is ok. It has much to choose from but much of it is instant, reconstituted and sugary. Friendly staff, clean rooms and property. Price for the area was good.

This is the one stop we truly regret from our San Francisco-San Diego road trip. We chose Ventura over Santa Barbara because it was much more affordable, now we know why. This is essentially a dated motel sandwiched between the highway and a busy road and the train tracks. The nearby park where we took our 5 year old to...
