The hotel overall was average. Nothing extravagant but certainly not poor. I had a nice suite with Harbor view. The room was clean and "somewhat" comfortable. My only negative was certainly the bed. It was old, squeaky, and I could feel the springs as I tossed and turned. It was not comfortable at all and I didn't get a goodnight's...

The hotel is conveniently located in the Ventura harbor area. If you are taking one of the boats to see the Channel Islands you will still need to drive to a different parking lot, walking is too far. Hotel looked nice from the outside but from the inside was run down. Also, parking fees are being charged in addition to...

Two weeks ago my family and I spent a night at this hotel. The experience was overall very good: the room was nice and clean, the people at the front desk were really helpful and polite; and the only drawback is the pool. The hotel doesn't have a pool on its own, so in case u wanna swim, you'll have...

Nice hotel with proximity to Ventura harbor. That is why we stayed here as we had an early boat ride next morning. Nice rooms that were quiet. Staff was nice and parking available. The only thing is we had to walk to pool at another adjacent hotel via elevated walk. I have never seen hotels sharing pools.

I stayed here for three nights while movers were packing and delivering my things to my new home. I chose this property because of the reviews, the pictures looked good and it is pet friendly. From the minute I arrived the staff were swell. Lindsi and Sylvia found me a lovely room on the 3rd floor overlooking the harbor. Sophie...

This place has been our go-to destination for quick local getaways for several years. In previous reviews we have expressed great satisfaction with the location, conditions and value. On our latest trip (July 2016) it was immediately apparent that little or no attention is being paid to maintaining the rooms and facilities. The room furniture is worn, wall coverings and...

Yes, some of the HIEs do need a makeover, but they are never the worst places to stay. This HIE has a nice view of the harbor, even if my bathroom felt retro. While I was just passing through for one night because Santa Barbara is overpriced, the stay was worth it even if I had to pay $10 for...
