Nice views even nicer staff

Posted Sep 17, 2017
The hotel itself was average but the views and proximity to the beach are nice. The staff more than made up for the average conditions of the hotel. The beds were actually really comfortable and the breakfast options were good. My only complaint is that they advertise the pool but the pool is actually at the hotel next door. Easy to get to, especially for us as we were next to the connecting bridge, but still shouldn't use the pool as their profile pic. Pools are important when we look for hotels and the pics were misleading. All in all would stay there again.

Nice hotel right on the Ventura Harbor

Posted Sep 8, 2017
Pros: Location, spacious room, helpful and friendly staff
Cons: Staff should let guests know about the pool and spa that are available at the hotel next door
Location: Beautiful beaches, charming downtown. Less than 15 miles to the tourist town of Ojai, hiking in the Los Padres National Forest.
This hotel is a good choice for those who want a beachside location. It's right on the Ventura Harbor, with the beach, restaurants and shops a short walk away. Instead of birds chirping, we were awakened in the morning by seals barking on the docks! The room was clean and spacious, with a small balcony overlooking the harbor. The staff was extremely accommodating. There's a free breakfast each morning that includes sausage or bacon and pancakes in addition to the typical continental breakfast choices. The hotel provides access to a nice pool and spa in the hotel next door which you access through a connecting walkway. It's a bit of a walk so not as convenient as if the facilities were located on the Holiday Inn property itself; but it's not a big issue. I do wish the staff had told us about the pool and spa because we were not aware of their existence until we thought to ask the second day of our stay. Overall I would recommend this hotel if you're staying in Ventura.

Great spot for watching the boats.

Posted Aug 23, 2017
Pros: The staff is very attentive and helpful. We don't care for the parking charge.
Cons: Fresh biscuits (Used to have 'em.)
Location: Plenty of people watching, boat watching and an occasional seal can be heard "barking'>
We love staying here. Lots of shops and restaurants to check out. Brophy Brothers on the waterfront has excellent food and service. Be prepared to wait for a table...but the wait is worth it. Watch the birds and the boats from your table. The waterfront is just outside our room and we spend enjoyable time watching all the activity. The free breakfast buffet is still good...not as good as it used to be, but a pretty good variety of things to chow-down on. The fresh-made do it yourself pancake machine is very popular. Fresh fruits, breads and rolls, egg dishes and cold and hot cereals and several kinds of juice are offered

Nice room

The stay was good and the room was nice. They have not reversed the $100 deposit yet though. I hope they do soon.
