Nothing I would recommend

Posted Jul 20, 2014
Close to railroad tracks which makes ur room shake. While we were there a party was in the rooms below an we could hear the man in the room next door snoring. Continental breakfast consisted of coffee old cheap Danishes an Quaker peanut butter bsnack bars. Nothing to drink offered for kids. Ridiculous!!!!!!!

Nice hotel close to the beach.

The environment nearby is perfect. Although it is close to the railway, there is no noise at all. The breakfast is no good.

Thank you for the review! We are in one of the best locations in Ventura, walking distance to just about anything you would want to do. We actually don't offer breakfast at this location. We do have complementary breakfast snacks for your convenience. Our on-site restaurant has a great breakfast menu and really great weekday values.

The hotel is old. The room is small and very old. The continental breakfast was very spars. The staff was quick to bring us a cot. The neighborhood is concerning

We are located next to the bridge that crosses over the freeway to the Ventura Pier and beach. A lot of people park back there and walk, and a lot of people just hang out. We have never had any problems.

Dated but good location

Posted Jun 24, 2014
Pros: Closeness to my event and availability when everything else was sold out.
Cons: Water temperature.
Location: Everything is nearby.
The outside of the place definitely doesn't look like you're in for a treat, but the rooms are clean and look just like the pictures. Good- -A lot (I mean A LOT) of channels were available on the cable. -Right off the fwy/bad if getting there or leaving during popular time. -Location is right across from the beach, 5 minutes to downtown scene and food/bars, and a ten minute walk from our event. -Working fridge(cold when you get there) and microwave. -Book now pay later option. -Let us park there after check out/leave car for the day. -Super quick and responsive AC. -Allows dogs Iffy- -run down/ghetto appearance. -pool hours(should run later on weekends or summertime). -understaffed. -diner attached but closes before you really get time to settle in. -free breakfast of bland local Danishes and coffee. -allows dogs. Very Poor -NO HOT WATER. We both took freezing showers between 8am-10am -hair dryer didn't work and there was no replacement. -no one answers when you dial the front desk/called 5 times. -limited parking by your actual room. -no noticeable security/homeless sleeping in the back parking lot.

I agree with you that the restaurant should be open later, but they lease it and don't want to change the hours. Our water heater did not go out, so it must have been super high usage at the time you were using the shower. I will order more hair dryers today, no one reported that the room was missing one. I'm sorry about that. I'm not sure what happened with the phone, there is someone there 24 hours a day. I will follow up on that. Thanks for the detailed review. I appreciate the information.

Stop Over

Posted Jun 22, 2014
Room has a little bit of odor and AC was not working properly. Bed was comfy and overall, the room was pretty clean. NO elevator available to go up the second level. A little bit of inconvenience especially if you a lot of stuff to carry. The surrounding is pretty safe.

Thanks for letting us know about your stay with us. Next time you come, be sure to ask for a downstairs room when you make the reservation. We are currently upgrading the air-conditioners, but as far as I know, they all work. I will have someone check to make sure. Thanks again, and we hope you stop by next time you are in the area.

Small, quiet and delicious

Posted May 27, 2014
Pros: There was a small restaurant located a 1/2 block away called Spencer McKenzie's Fish that had the BEST shrimp and fish tacos.
We were heading south on the Pacific Coast Highway and stayed at this hotel for one night. The room was clean and comfortable. There was a restaurant located on the premises that served a great breakfast. We walked over the pedestrian bridge to the pier and beach area. It was not a day for swimming but it was nice to walk out on the pier. The staff was very helpful when we were looking for a small store and when I noticed the hair dresser was missing from our room. All in all a positive experience.

Thank you for commenting. We have hot tea and cocoa too! I will follow up with your suggestion about providing filtered drinking water. I think it's a good idea.

Thanks for the review! We set the refrigerator to low when the room is not in use. Now that we are getting busy, I will make sure they are kept colder. Thanks for the heads up.

Would stay here again.

Posted May 2, 2014
Pros: Clean and pet friendly.
Cons: Continental breakfast.
Rooms not luxurious but very clean. Hotel staff very accommodating. At the last minute, we needed to cancel our second night stay due to unforeseen circumstances and the front desk person let us cancel with no charge. Great hotel for pets. Continental breakfast was mediocre.
