Awesome time!

My husband and I were able to take a short vacation. We have been to Ventura before, but we really had a great time on this trip! We went to the local antique stores and ate at some wonderful restaurants. We also drove to the Harbor, it was so peaceful there! We were very pleased with this hotel. The room was very clean and we were surprised at the selection of food offered for breakfast. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Just passing by

Staff was super friendly and helpful. Room was in great condition. Breakfast was great. There were so many options to pick out from. Hotel is pretty close to the freeway and easy to find. The only downside is the parking situation but not a big problem. Definitely worth the price and will stay here again if I ever go that way again.

Nice for a family of 3

The location was great. Within walking distance to the beach,pier and downtown. Sleepy little town lots of restaurants and pizza places. I recommend Mr.Lee's chinese takeout it was even good the next day. The hotel has a fridge and microwave so you can keep food fresh. Close to the freeway to drive up or down the coast.

Bugs everywhere

Front desk was friendly, breakfast was good, but the room was full of flies and mosquitoes and moths. Had to be killing them all night. Outside our door were about 10 grasshoppers as well. We traveled with our baby and did not like the environment. How can you sleep in a room with bugs flying everywhere?

very pleased

Pleasantly surprised by this Best Western in Ventura. Easy walk to beach and main street; clean, well laid out room; comfortable bed; nice breakfast included; friendly staff. Staff recommendation for dinner was great. We were only passing through, but a couple night stay would have been fine also. Were impressed enough that we booked our next night in Atascadero at a Best Western also and were equally pleased. Only potential negative, which didn't affect us, is that it's close to the train tracks, but trains at night weren't an issue.
