Great value getawayPosted Nov 25, 2013
Pros: Location is very convenient to get to the Harbor, pier, or downtown. Very nice to have fridge and microwave in room. WiFi was free, simple, worked
Cons: Really nothing for the price!
Location: Very close to bike trail, downtown area is a festive night stroll, beautiful harbor and shops nearby with charters available
Staff was super helpful and friendly, this is not a luxury hotel but a very comfortable clean centrally located place to stay and enjoy Ventura.

not what you thinkPosted Nov 1, 2013
not as close to beach as stated. Our room was directly facing IN N OUT hamburger restaurant-we could actually SEE the faces of the people eating inside and out....and i am sure they could SEE us. parking was awful....VERY DISAPPOINTED with this choice.....will know next time to stay away from this Hotel. nothing was said until we got there that the hotel was doing renovations....it needed them-a little shabby for the amount we paid to stay. Didn't take our AAA or golden buckeye discount off-was told by desk it couldn't be done-tell someone ahead of time how to do this. BAD CHOICE all the way around.

We thank you for your review and do apologize that your experience at our hotel was not a satisfactory one. Our hotel is currently undergoing renovations, during business hours, so that we can make our hotel a more comfortable and enjoyable place for our guests to stay and we apologize if this caused you any problems. Unfortunately since you made the reservation through Expedia we are unable to discount the rate any further, but in the future if you would like to book a reservation for a Choice hotels property, either through our website or calling the hotel directly, we would be happy to accept your AAA discount. Although the hotel is not located directly on the ocean shore we are less than half of a mile from the beach and many of our guests do enjoy the leisurely walk. We apologize that your room location was unsatisfactory; in the future feel free to inform our front desk agents and they would be happy to move you to a more desirable location if and when available. We hope you will reconsider staying with us in the future when stopping in Ventura and are able to take advantage of the helpfulness of the front desk staff.

convenient locationPosted Sep 4, 2013
Pros: Breakfast included at Denney's was excellent. Nice feature.
We only spent one night for sleeping. We did not see much of the area, but did enjoy our night.

It's about 8-10 minutes drive to the harbor/marinaPosted Sep 4, 2013
Pros: The location is close to everything.
Cons: A simple greetings a smile from the front desk staff.
Location: Close to the beach, to the harbor, to the marina. Good place to stay if you want to visit Santa Barbara or Malibu.
The hotel location is good, only few minutes drive to the marina and to the beach. The hotel parking is free as well as the parking in the marina and in the beach. They served free breakfast at Denny's which is only a walking distance from the hotel. There is an N n Out burger next to the hotel. This hotel is only 20 minutes away from Santa Barbara so if you want to save some bucks to visit Santa Barbara and to avoid their expensive hotels, this will be your good choice. Only when we check in, the front desk staff, is not so accommodating but on our next day he was ok till we check out. It's close to the freeway so it's expected to be a little bit noisy but tolerable. There is a shell gas station across the hotel. Safe place to stay. The hotel room is just a regular hotel room not fancy but comfortable and clean.

Very comfortable room with new bathroom.Posted Aug 17, 2013
Pros: location, location, location
Cons: can't think of anything .. very satisfied
Location: The beach was within walking distance and In and Out Burger right next door. Great hot breakfast at Denny's every morning free. Easy to find off 101.
The room was spacious and the bathroom was brand new. Outstanding staff -- all with a good case of the friendlies! Also we got a great rate through Expedia by reserving a month in advance. Thank you, Expedia. Will remember for the future.

Good BreakfastPosted Aug 16, 2013
Pros: Several restaurants were located close to the motel. Close to Ventura beaches with easy freeway access. Area was not scenic but it was convenient
Location: Close to public beaches. Enjoyed a boat trip to Anacapa Island which left from the Ventura Marina. Saw lots of wildlife.
Liked the vouchers for Denny's. Although the hotel is on a busy street it had double windows and was quiet at night. Parking was limited.
