Good and bad

Posted Jul 29, 2015
Pros: Close to the beach and pier. They had a walkway, maybe 200 yds to the pier! The staff was pleasant and acted quickly to your requests/concerns.
Cons: The facility is old. It needs remodeling. Backs up to a Metrolink track. Carpets need replacing..
Location: Close to Oxnard/Camarillo [4-10 mi]. The beach/pier, downtown and mission are 5 minutes Went to Santa Barbara [25 mi] and Solvang [65
We checked in about 8:30 pm with no problem. We didn't get a chance to really look at our room until the morning. The carpet was worse than filthy! When your feet, socks or shoes were on it, you were picking up a dirty black film. It actually washed off jet black in the shower! I want to say that the room itself was old but very clean. I complained at the front desk and they moved us within an hour to a different room. The carpet was fine. While the motel was very close to the beach and had a pool we would not stay here again.

That is why we are putting a fence around the back parking lot. They use it as a shortcut to the beach and Pier.

Yes, it's one of the best locations in Ventura for being able to walk or bike to beach and downtown. We hope to see you again.

hotel was more expensive and in much worse shape than anything in Monterey. Ventura was not appealing either.

Pros: The location is great. It is near the ocean and downtown Ventura.
I was very disappointed to find that the rug in my hotel room was wet when I arrived. The moisture was confirmed to a small area fortunately.

They probably did a spot clean and forgot to put the room on maintenance. I'm sorry that we didn't catch it.

Old and worn out

Posted May 9, 2015
Pros: The dinner next door.
We have stayed in a hotel next door for years and have a dog now so thought we would try this out. Very disappointed. Room was worn and even had burns in the bedspread. We will be looking for another place to stay.

I'm sorry about the bedspread. Housekeeping should have replaced it. Some of the rooms have been remodeled, but some have not been done yet. We are working with a contractor to have more rooms done this year.

Mangelhaft

Posted Apr 21, 2015 on Hotels
Direkt am Hwy. Wie beschrieben hört mann den Hwy nicht. Den Zug dafür umso mehr der direkt am Motel vorbefährt !!! Zimmer hat gestunken und war schmutzig...
