On the beach near great food
Posted Oct 11, 2016
First time in Ventura, our stay was awesome! The hotel was perfect for what we needed. Only there to sleep, spend most of our time outside sightseeing and on the beach! The walls are thin so if you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs. Didn't matter to us as we were up at dawn to catch the sunrise a short walk to the pier. Room was very small like a studio apt (I liked it) and there was a mini fridge, huge plus! The shower is a bit small, if you are 6 foot tall it is awkward as it is short, we were on the ground floor room. A really fun little town, locals are very nice and talkative. Very laid back and enjoyable atmosphere (don't be in a hurry, you will wait a lot) There is a resturant connected to the hotel and it's perfect for breakfast, good coffee and eggs. Very friendly staff. There is a little taco stand called mackenzies that is amazing as well as a window service Mexican place called Corrales both excellent. The pier is right behind the hotel, just walk across the short pedestrian bridge over the freeway. Many great little bars and resturants (Ventiki) a short walk up toward the downtown area. The cross park is a great morning hike a 5 min drive from hotel to see the whole city and ocean mountain views. I recommend this hotel, loved it! The beach we thought was the best - Buenaventura. I would most definitely come back, I didn't want to leave!
