Very nice hotel, close to the beach and downtown.

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: The bed.
Cons: Better handicap access in bathroom. Stepped down into shower; couldn't get a wheelchair into the shower.
Location: Very nice restaurants; not too pricey. Small neat friendly clubs. Went for Ventura Comic Con and had a great time. Also Aloha Festival.
Very pleasant and cheerful. Nice clientele, mostly very friendly mostly senior citizens that we saw. Easy drive to Ventura Fair Grounds, Joe's Crab Shack, Mimi's cafe and shopping mall. Felt comfortable walking around.

Beautiful Inn Across from Beach in Ventura

Posted Aug 20, 2014
Location: If you cross the street to the beach, it's about a fifteen minute walk to the pier where there are several places to have food and drinks.
This was even nicer than I expected. I was traveling up the coast with my 17 year old son and wanted to stop in Ventura and stay near the beach. I had reserved a room with two queen beds. When we arrived, for some reason our room was upgraded to a suite with no extra charge. It was attractive, spacious, comfortable, and had a balcony plus another sitting area that provided beautiful ocean views. I wish we could have stayed three or four nights instead of just one. Plenty of room to entertain guests. The grounds were very attractive, and right across from an uncrowded beach.

Cons: A hot tub that is part of the property, not at a spa across the street for an extra fee.

Nice large room

Older hotel but great location, comfortable beds, great price, large roomy rooms and quiet. Overall a great place to stay! The bathroom could use some updating but was clean and functional.

Older Historic Hotel that has Great Potential

Posted Jul 30, 2014
I booked an air conditioned room but did not get one.(Note: although it says they have air conditioned rooms they are few in number and you must confirm it and get there early in the day.) I arrived at 4:00 pm and they were completely booked. So I had to sleep with the sliding glass door to the balcony open--nice ocean breeze flowed into the room as long as the door into the room was also open. There was an older ceiling fan but it was sooo loud. Bed was very comfortable with very nice linens and faced the ocean view. Bath was old, could be remodeled and still retain the period of the hotel (built in1910). Room configuration was interesting with bath at front that afforded quite a bit of privacy in the room itself. The bed positioned with ocean views also overlook Hwy 101 and the traffic noise diminished with the evening but was definitely still there. there is a restaurant but I didn't eat there. No market to purchase water or soft drinks. Interestingly, all of our neighbors were aware that everyone's doors were open and so were courteous and for the most part very quiet, even the families at the pool.

Great hotel for the price !

Posted Jul 26, 2014
Pros: Staff, Location, and Price
Cons: No refrigerators in the room, air conditioner didn't work well and the second floor got pretty warm
Location: Walk South on Harbor to get to Pierpoint for man fish taco locations. Dukes burgers was popular as was Social Tap... has the feel of a cute beach town
The hotel was a quick walk to the ocean about, 2 minutes and a twenty minute walk from Downtown Ventura which was filled with amazing food and many bars/nightlife. The rooms were a little dated but very clean and it is by the 101 so if you are a light sleep it may not be the best place, but I wasn't bothered at all by the light noise. EVERYONE that worked at the hotel were amazing, nice, accommodating etc. The housekeeping staff was smiley and sweet, front desk was great, even the bartenders at the restaurant were amazing people... A staff. Over all I recommend this hotel... go for it

Disappointed in Ventura

Posted Jul 23, 2014
A historical hotel in serious need of updating .the rooms are small and sad. No air condition in my room and the noise from the freeway makes for a very sleepless night. Dated decor add to the drearyness. The staff made up for the no ac by Giving us a voucher for a free breakfast . Which has a friendly staff but mediocre food. I would not Recommend this hotel.

Beautiful grounds, clean, dog friendly, near beach

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Very friendly and helpful staff. Old hotel i(renovated) in a beautifully landscaped setting close to beach and paved biking/walking path. Dog friendly. Restaurant serves guests with dogs on outdoor patio area. Some road noise from US 101 freeway. Has very pretty outdoor setting for small wedding and reception. We took our Labradoodle and Golden for 5 nights. Nice beaches that are not crowded. Loved the stay.
