Ventura Seashore Half Marathon

Posted Feb 20, 2017
Pros: Walking distance to Main Street and pier.
We always stay at Best Western when we come for the Ventura runs. They give us later checkouts and easy to walk to from the finish line. Also easy to walk to all the sites.

Strong smell of cleaning product in room when you first enter but you get used to it pretty quickly. No elevator so you have to lug your luggage up a flight of stairs. Handy location for beach and town and decent enough breakfast.

My stay at Best Western Plus Inn of Ventura

3 out of 5
by from San Diego
Posted Dec 27, 2016
Pros: Its central location.
Cons: The hot water systems needs to be improved. Wasting water when you let the water flow for a long time to get hot water.
Location: Location is very central. Not far to Santa Barbara and to Ventura downtown.
Hotel is centrally located and not far to Santa Barbara. Hot water took a long time to be warmed up. I hope the hotel will improve this. It does not make any sense to waste so much running water to get hot water! Hope there will be more food items added to the breakfast. Add bananas and apples to the fruit item. Hard boiled eggs.

Thank you for your review, As we have all experienced at one time or another things stop working and things need to be replaced. We immediately corrected the issue with the water heater and we are truly sorry about the hot water taking extended time to get warm. We do have bananas and apples, so I am uncertain if maybe they needing replenishing or may have been out of sight. We appreciate all feedback and we certainly appreciate you and thank you for sharing your stay experience with us!

Place to stay while visiting.

3 out of 5
by from Campbell, CA
Posted Dec 27, 2016
Pros: Everything in this motel was clean & in its place -- no clutter. Room was laid out with just enough storage & furniture convenience for comfort.
Cons: Upgrade bed for comfort. Provide different pillow thickness for user selection.
We used this motel for place to stay while visiting our son, daughter-in-law & grandson. We enjoyed the motel breakfast & just drove from motel to our son's residence. Motel appeared to have been recently remodeled. Even the towels were new. Unfortunately, the bed was hard & the springs squeaked so badly that it was impossible to get in/out without wakening each other. The 4-pillows were identical but too thick to allow comfort -- caused neck & back pain. We stayed 3-nights over Christmas and managed to sleep no more than 4-hours per night. If you don't mind the above, you will enjoy you're stay. For us, we will not stay in Best Western in future -- it's time for us to pay for a better bed -- but I suspect that means twice the price!

Hello Thelma, We did just remodel our rooms and will continue with the rest of the property in 2017. We are so sorry about your mattress and hope that you mentioned this to the staff so that we can replace it immediately. We sure hope that next time you are in Ventura you allow us to welcome you back!

I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends. The room was clean and cozy and close to the beach. I felt safe being here with just my son and my elderly mother.

Clean room

Posted Nov 18, 2016
Pros: Cleanliness
Cons: Check the wall paper in the bathrooms. Fix the ice machine.
Location: Easy walk to Ventura Pier, and fairgrounds. Also easy walk to downtown.
Very clean room - looked new except for the wall paper in the bathroom was peeling at the seams. There did appear to be some remodeling going on. Great location - easy walk to pier, restauarants and downtown.

Reasonable value

3 out of 5
by from The O.C.
Posted Nov 2, 2016
Cons: .Traffic at freeway interchange a mess.
Location: Many good restaurants in walking distance; nice old buildings and interesting shops. rather suspicious crowd near the pier at night. Never saw police.
Nice room for the money, convenient location. Blinking light in the bathroom at night annoying. Breakfast is the same old, same old. Very boring after a few days. Whole grain waffles would be nice. Staff was very helpful. When you ask for a wake-up call, they have to call you back to make sure it's working. What up wit dat?

Hello Steve, Thank you for telling us about your recent stay. We enjoy hearing from our guests and love knowing how your stay went. We set up wake up calls from our switchboard/phone here at the front desk which sends you an automated call at the set time. The reason we give you a quick call moments after your wake up request, is to make sure that your ringer has not been turned down by a prior guest or accidentally during cleaning. We certainly would not want you to miss your wake up call. Thank you for inquiring Steve, and we look forward to welcoming you back!

Nice but needs a thicker padding on mattress

4 out of 5
by from US
Posted Oct 31, 2016
Pros: It was clean, clean, clean.
Cons: The mattress... Plus it's squeaky.
Location: One street past the park across BW is, downtown. Nice shops & pubs. Next to City Hall is the Botanical Gardens. The beaches are close by.
The hotel has been remodeled and is clean. The TV remote even comes in a sleeve to ensure its cleanliness. I like that it didn't have a carpet, instead fake hard wood floor. The one thing BW can Improve on is to have thicker padding on thier firm mattresses. At home, I have a nice firm bed & love it. But the mattress felt like you were sleeping on the springs itself. I had to pull the comforter out & fold it in half to make shift it into a sleeping bag to have a hint of padding. I just recently traveled cross country and stayed in hotels all along the way & was pleasantly surprised with the comfort in each stay. The lodging here in Ventura was for a stay-cation. Everything was great...the breakfast was simple but good. However, Best Western please...put thicker padding on your mattress instead of whatever that sheet thin piece of material that's on there now. In the meantime, if you do decide to stay at BW ask for extra blankets to lay on top of to add a bit of comfort in having a decent night sleep.

Thank you E! for your review, Its wonderful to hear you had a nice stay and we certainly hope you enjoyed the botanical gardens as well as the beach and main street. We did recently replace all of our mattresses, we are so sorry to hear that you did not find it comfortable. I do hope you expressed this to the front desk staff so that we could inspect the mattress. We truly appreciate your feedback and will be using it to provide a better experience for future guests. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Thank you
