Easter Family Trip

My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay at the Country Inn & Suites By Carlson. The room was spacious and very clean. We had a good view of the Ventura Pier and the Pacific. Some have mentioned noise from the freeway but we hardly noticed it and sleeping was easy. The free breakfast was incredible and very satisfying. All of the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We were on the third floor and there's only one central elevator but it worked just fine. The internet wifi was a bit of a problem as it would not allow video or audio streaming. I assume this may have been because of heavy usage. Would recommend they look into upgrading their system. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay. Will likely return to this hotel in the future.

Weekend visting family.

The location of the hotel is convenient to access from the freeway. It is within walking distance to the beach and to the Main Street for resturants and shopping. The rooms are comfortable but outdated and not quite as clean as I would like. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed the complimentary happy hour and the breakfast. The front desk went out of their way to find information for us on resturants in the area and give directions.

Family reunion

Pros: I would definitely stay at this hotel again for the location, great breakfast and staff friendliness/helpfulness. Con: Cleaning crew was lacking. Stayed 7 nights with service declining each day.

clean and comfortable

Location of hotel is convenient since it is located close to many restaurants and the beach but too close to the freeway. The pool and jacuzzi are literally just on the other wall from the freeway and was really loud. Rooms are big and clean but dated. Overall an average stay.
