We stayed one night on a trip to Ojai. Pulled in a little after 3, were told room wouldn't be ready till 4. That's kind of pushing it. They told us to wait at the pool and they would come get us. No where to change into swim suits. We waited and waited. Went back to reception at 4:15 and...

The room was immaculate and recently renovated. The staff, especially Cindy, was kind, helpful and friendly. I couldn't have asked for a better location. My friend and I ran the Ventura Marathon and it literally took us less than 4 minutes to walk to the start line/the pier. Multiple options for eating and no vehicle necessary. I will definitely stay...

A frantic late night search of TripAdvisor showed this hotel as being well reviewed. We drove in and thought "What have we gotten into?" This motel, like many others along this strip of coast has been a motel for a long time. Think California motel in the 50's and you've got it. However, we were greeted by super friendly Diego,...

This hotel met every need we had! And for HALF the price of any hotel along the coast. The breakfast was nice and the pool is heated! I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable room at a great and accommodating value. Would return.

The breakfast was just OK and the hotel exterior wasn't much to look at. Those are my ONLY complaints. The hotel location is GREAT and is walking distance to cute downtown area, nearby park and the beach/pier. The room was clean and had everything we needed.

The outside of this motel, with the exception of the office, is more than a bit shabby. Very tired looking. However, the room was wonderful, very sharp looking bed, toiletries were very nice, and the breakfast was just fine. Very enjoyable stay, and very well priced. We would definitely stay here again.

Your reservation system stated I reserved a Queen Sized bed. The bed was full sized. Queen sized beds are 60 inches wide, six inches wider than a full. You shouldn't make reservations for something that you do not provide I have a Queen sized bed home and this bed was noticeable smaller and less comfortable and cramped.
