Nice hotel for 1 night

We stayed over for one night during out trip along the PCH. While the hotel itself is above average, the traffic noise and the area is not.

4th Of July Extended Vacation

Considering the options in Ventura, the value is there. For the price, you receive a very nice room with coffee pot, refrig, microwave, nice size TV, room A/C, nice balcony with chairs-although without an ocean view room you are just watching the neighboring business and traffic. (Spend the extra money for an ocean view room if you can.) Hot breakfast is included and manned by a real person cooking. WOW! That adds real value. The staff if very friendly and makes sure your needs are met. The room was very clean. Nothing overlooked to make it an enjoyable stay. We will be back and that says it all. Note about California and Ventura in general. Things are expensive over there and you can't find a room on the coast near the ocean for less than about $150.00 per night anywhere. So, if you have to pay through the nose, then get the return on your money spent. Close to the beach, clean room with all amenities, hot breakfast and 2 drinks with appetizers at night. Considering what you would spend for breakfast alone, the value is there. In short " they get it ! " Caution: They don't allow smoking or pets. Totally fine with us but be aware of these policies before you book.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Travel down to the harbor and take advantage of two boat trips. One tours the harbor. Seniors pay $8.00. The other tours the Channel Islands. Lasts 3 and 1/2 hours and cost is $33.00 (seniors). Both were worth every penny spent .

Close but not to far away...

We enjoyed the nice feel of downtown Ventura. The room was quiet and peaceful. Close to Business and quaint little shops. The room had some issues, they reversed the sheet inside out for our second night stay. And the floor could of used a little vacuuming. Each night. Enough said!

Convenient location, but room cleanliness went down since last year

This is a good overall hotel in a great location and a solid hot breakfast. I did notice that the upkeep was not as good as last year (I stayed in this hotel 5 times in the past 12 months). The room could have been a touch cleaner, especially around the bathroom area. Tap water from the sink occasionally had some odor. Wi-Fi was spotty at times, but front desk had network cable available. Good value overall.

Family trip to the marathon

Easy in and easy out. Nice comfortable room and pool. Loud freeway and trains. Get a room on the inland side. The A/C was quiet. We were there over the weekend and there were no local maps available nor were there any newspapers at the desk. (the Best Western a couple hundred feet away had newspapers if you wanted one...) Room service food was from offsite but was fast and good! We were within easy walking distance of everything. Ventura is a cool town with great food.

Pizza Man Dan's was great!!! Good wine and great food at a good price. The Lure had the best sand dabs and beer. Their mixed drinks were only so-so. Their pasta dishes were dynamite.

Enjoyed our stay!

The hotel room was very clean. The air conditioner worked well it was a little warm here in Ventura while we were vacationing. The happy hour was really nice. They have very good popcorn, chips and salsa(salsa was excellent). The happy hour hostess was very kind and kept the appetizers supplies full. They have beer, wine and sodas to drink. The breakfast was wonderful we were very happy with all the food. The only problem with our stay was there were many young people there for a tennis tournament of some sort and they were very noisy but quieted down around 11:00 PM. Pool and spa were very clean and the spa was very relaxing. We enjoyed our stay at the Country Inn.

The Vagabond Cafe has the best food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is always very good and the service is good as well. We have always been very happy with everything we have ordered.
