This hotel, overall was pretty nice. It was a pretty nice location, right by the harbor. It did seem a little outdated. The staff was pretty nice, although we didn't really have a lot of contact with them. The breakfast was okay, but there was such limited seating we had to eat in the outside area, which was locked from the inside. Other people were able to let you in, but I would hate to see what would happen once those people had left.
The bed was super comfy & the room had a great view of the marina. We enjoyed our stay thuroughly.
My room was upgraded to a suite. Everyone was very friendly and I enjoyed my stay very much. The location is perfect.
My husband and I do not live too far away but we love gettting away in Ventura. We love the location and the lovely view of the boats. The only problem is that this hotel is small and I often cannot get a room on short notice.
The room was great. They upgraded us to a room with a view of the harbor at no extra cost. Bed was a little firm but not bad. Price of room included self serve breakfast.
My husband and I stayed here in 2007. We arrived at 11:30 am and was told we can't check in. We informed the desk clerk we were going to a Santa Cruz Island cruise and would not return till after 5 pm. She told us there wouldn't be a problem since we had reservation. Upon return, no room for us. Checked us in a room that was not what we reserved. Then they threw someone out of their room so we could have their room. I guessed the former guest was so pissed off, they dumped water all over the bed. We left to go to dinner, when returned, they gave our room to someone else. Our luggage were all over their office and some of our personal belongings were still in the room. No apology, nothing. We felt like we were treated like criminals. Will never return there.
My wife and I just visited Ventura for the first time and this hotel set the tone for a great relaxing vacation. We requested a room with a view of the harbor and a balcony which gave us beautiful sunsets and a real nautical feel for our stay. The breakfast was first class with a staff that seemed to anticipate every thing you could want or need. Our trip was to short to see and explore the Channel Islands, but we will definitely stay at this hotel when we return to do that.
We could not have been happier. We were met by a wonderful staff that were available for any questions or needs we had. We had a great room that was clean and comfortable. A full breakfast was included in our stay. Bay windows overlooked the marina. We're makiong plans to go back in a few weeks! Excellent value!
I used to stay at this Hotel all the time - but like most thing in Ventura - This hotel is going down hill - I found they have all kinds of different room rates so if you make the mistake of staying make sure you work them over I paid $*+ and talked to 3 othere people that pd from $ *to $* for rm's- The Front desk the worst I have ever come accross rude and the management is just as bad - the room I had there was gum in the carpet-bathroom was dirty hair and all kinds of nasty thing around the totial sicking - we cut are trip short after our run in with this place - Don't stay - it's OVER Priced and dirity -
We loved the hotel. It is definately worth the extra few $$ to get the Harbor View. The view from our balcony was great! The breakfast was very tasty wtih the hot entrees a nice addition. The beds were extremely comfortable and everything was clean, clean, clean! Will be going back next month!
We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Our room and bathroom were clean and roomy, the beds were great, the kitchenette was the perfect addition and the amenities were great. Our family of 5 was quite comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The free daily breakfast was good with a nice variety. The only drawbacks are that the pool is actually located at the Four Points Sheraton next door to the Holiday Inn, so you have to walk next door, and our room faced east and the view off our patio was a high stucco wall. Otherwise, the harbor is beautiful, downtown Ventura is charming, and Santa Barbara is only 30 minutes away. We would definitely stay at this location again.
