relaxing weekend

being on the ocean saved this place. there was no in room coffee, no hair dryer. The curtains had wear holes in them in addition, it was no benefit to book thru you. the prices were the same for clients off the street. dining experience there was above average.

right on the beach

We've been coming here for over 12 years. We know what we're getting-- basically a motel at the beach. But we keep coming back, because I can surf , run and swim just by stepping out the door. I'm a big fan of the pool. That said, it's noisy from the 101 and the other occupants and their children who walk/run up and down the corridors. The breakfast is not good-- it's mostly pastry. It would be nice to have fresh fruits. The restaurant is ok. The banana reef dessert is excellent. The do have tea in the lobby in the evening. There is no ice machine-- you have to get it from the kitchen when it's open. Unfortunately, they started redoing the 101 freeway last year , so Mussel Shoals is now completely cut off. If you are coming from the south, you have to go 2 miles up the road, exit , get back on the southbound to access the hotel. If you want to go north to Santa Barbara, you will have to go south for 2 miles, then exit and get back on the northbound freeway to head back up there. My husband says we should stay in Santa Barbara from now on.

Stunning views, comfortable snooze.

There's nothing like sleeping to the sound of the ocean. Especially being on a big comfortable bed. PROS: All the rooms face the ocean with the beach being about 100 feet away. If you open the window, you even get sea breeze in your room for free. Our room (#22) had a big, king sized bed that was very comfortable with clean sheets and soft, very warm blankets that let you sleep with the window open without getting cold. The toiletry kit provided by the hotel was of good quality. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. CONS: The room is VERY basic, aged and a little run down (but clean). If you're looking for any kind of luxury, find it somewhere else. The TV is from the 1980's, the volume on it would go from barely audible at max to insanity-nightmare-loud without notice. We had to figure out how to watch tv, having to work 2 remotes and the tv set itself. it was overly complicated. The bathroom was clean but tiny, old and run down. The framing around the ceiling light was missing revealing a gaping hole into the space above. The walls in the bathroom had dents and holes in it, the shower was barely big enough for an adult, the shower handle was broken and difficult to set to a comfortable water temperature. With all its faults, and even though we felt the upkeep was a bit on the negligent, we would stay here again. With a little TLC, this place could be legendary.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

For nature lovers only. Take the ferry out of Oxnard to the Channel Islands for a day hike or stay a couple nights camping. It's a very unique and seldom visited place. absolutely beautiful.
