There's no reason not to enjoy a hotel with a patio that looks out to the Pacific Ocean. My room was very comfortable. Somehow I lucked out and was upgraded to a really large room with a couch and 2 patio doors. Since I was here for a week, this was very pleasant. The bed was comfortable, everything was very clean and in great condition. I utilized the fridge and microwave, and really enjoyed time sitting on the balcony watching the waves crash and the surfers surf. The bar area is pretty nice, and I enjoyed a nightly beer from the exceptionally entertaining bartender. The location of this hotel is what you pay for...it's steps from the wide walking path along the beach. From the hotel, you can walk south to the Ventura Pier and enjoy great tacos and a stroll out on the pier (although some of it was closed due to storm damage when I was there) or you can walk north for nearly a mile to the Ventura River. Very pleasant. Also easy to walk east across the 101 into town to a plethora of great restaurants. Very safe to walk around anytime. The breakfast is not free, so I stocked food from the grocery store in town. There is a pool that looked pretty nice, but I didn't try it out. Parking is also not free, but the garage next to the hotel is not terribly expensive. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

1st time staying at the Crown Plaza in Ventura and will not be the last. I do not have one complaint. Everything was AMAZING! Staff was Awesome (front desk, maids, valet, both restaurants staff). Greeted every time I came in contact with them. Right on the beach, my view was breath taking, very convenient walk to downtown Ventura with lots of restaurants and shops. I Have told all of my friends and family to book with this hotel if they are in the Ventura area.

I am so disappointed. After staying at this hotel 3 times before and really enjoying the rooms and the friendliness of the staff, this time was much different. Our check in representative, Sean, was unfriendly, unwilling to work to make us happy on the location of our room and wouldn’t answer my husband’s questions. He basically said take it or leave it but people checking in after us had some choices that were overheard walking by. We even offered to pay more for a different room. He didn’t even check and just said every other room was taken. Not much choice when you’ve coming more than two hours to get here. This will be our last time at the Ventura Crowne Plaza.

I paid extra for an ocean view room and this is what they gave me. This is a parking lot view. I went up front to get a discount or change my room to a real ocean front. They refused. Not happy. Paid extra to look at the ocean on vacation. Not a noisy street.

This is the worst hotel i have ever been to. They rent out their wedding venue, which has zero soundproofing and allow them to blast music until MIDNIGHT. Like shaking the walls on the 11th floor loud. Requested a call from the manager several times to no avail was forced to contact corporate tp file a formal complain. If you intend to sleep at all, this is not the hotel for you.

My Girlfriends and I were treated like Queens for my birthday party visit. The Valet was perfectly helpful and friendly. Everyone at check in was wonderful. We walked to the Ventura County Fairgrounds that night and saw one of our favorite bands play. Breakfast the next morning was delicous ! Our waiters were really cool and really made sure we had more than everything our hearts desired. A Trip To Remember !

Upon arrival, parking lot was closed by police due to recurring vehicle break-ins, vandalism, and transient people living in the structure. Valet parking was the only option given for additional cost and the wrong keys were given when departing on multiple occasions. The lobby was like a dog park and we had to dodge pet messes on a daily basis. Groups of non-guests monopolized the gym space and left the area in shambles upon their departure. The restaurant manager was a tyrant and would not let hotel guests consume meals or beverages in the hotel patio that were not purchased from the restaurant. The restaurant was always empty which likely speaks to the quality of food offered and poor attitude of the manager. However, dogs and their pot smoking owners were welcome in the patio area. Ventura is a great city and suggest alternate accommodations if you visit. This hotel is not worth the money for a stay in this iconic beach community.

This is the third night of ours staying at the Crown Plaza Hotel. Will be checking out tomorrow, August 4, 2023. From the moment we called the hotel a few weeks ago to make our reservations to today this has been an outstanding positive stay and experience. We had several special requests to help make our stay more comfortable. Most of the requests we had were in an attempt to make staying here easier because of my disability (I'm a full time wheelchair user). All requests were fully handled in such a positive helpful manner. The best part of the hotel? Beyond the great ocean view, nice clean room, wonderful location, outstanding restaurant? The best part? The General Manager "Danny". One could not find a more helpful, kind and professional individual. The other great part about Danny is it's clear that he has spent a lot of time making sure the entire staff is helpful and pleasant to interact with. We have stayed here in the past going back to the days when the hotel was branded Holiday Inn. The hotel company and Danny have done a great job making this guests stay a wonderful memorable one. We will be back, again and again and again. Thanks Danny...and to all the other hotel staff that have made our stay so outstanding. FiveStars plus *****
