Reasonable motel stay in Ventura. Clean room with good lighting and fair decor.  King size bed was a bit softer than I prefer but I slept ok. Large good quality flat screen tv.  Bathroom was spacious and reasonably modern though shower curtain was stained and needs to be replaced. A few cons: no kettle/coffee maker or hairdryer which was quite...

I stopped at this place for one night. The room was spacious and clean. Bathroom and furniture appear a bit outdated, but everything is in good shape. The motel does not offer any breakfast. This place is a good alternative to the pricier accommodation in Santa Barbara.

This motel was a surprise after a long drive. First impressions - the property looked like a throw back to the days when single story bungalow-like motels ruled small coastal towns. The reception area barely fits one guest but the night staff was pleasant and welcoming. He offered us free bottled water and Pepsi. Each room has a parking spot...

Most of us can't afford an accomodation in Santa Barbara, so why not Ventura? And... in Ventura I found this clean and nice place . The owner is good guy: he gave me the room some hours before the check-in time and offered me soda cans for free. The parking was in fronte of the room and it was big,...

For the price, this was a nice place to stay. Pros-was very clean, updated interior, comfortable bed, frig,microwave, and big TV w/premium channels, and friendly staff. Cons- door right next to first double bed as you walk in, bathroom really small (but updated and clean), and no COFFEE maker(huge deal), and no hair dryer.

Free WiFi nice chair with large desk....

This is an OK motel - clean, quiet and its got some good amenities like a fridge etc. The staff is also very friendly and nice. However, some of the rooms have got a bit of a weird smell to them and the motel also hosts some long term patrons - which isn't exactly what you want as a tourist....

We stayed here just to sleep one night on our roaptrip on Highway 1. The price was good but the motel is really simple. The room was clean and have a fridge but it smelled smoke. The other guests at the motel seemed to live there permanently which you dont like as a tourist. They were a bit special. Wifi...

I stayed here in May 2015 for four nights. I booked it about five months before I went to the U.S. because I wanted to know where I was staying for my marathon. It's not the best and not without its problems, but the owner-managers (I think it's a family) are clearly trying hard to make it the best place...
