Clean comfortable at great price

I frequently stay in Ventura on business. This is one of my regular hotels. Rooms are big and comfortable. Includes fridge and microwave. Hot breakfast in the morning. About my only compaint is that the elevator is slow and the stairs don't have exits. So getting from the car to the room and back takes a few minutes. Fast freeway access, especially to points North. (Basically the last exit on the 101 before leaving Ventura for the Coast)

Good hotel, good deal. Satisfied

I just needed a quick solid, inexpensive place to stay for a business trip. Orbtz provided a good price. Everything went off well, without issue. In and out quickly, comfortably. I also appreciated convenient breakfast provided free of charge. Here's a note to hotel staff: Your job is important. We (the public) work hard. You provide respite from all that. Thank you. Acknowledge yourselves for good work. Go ahead and smile from time to time and know you are appreciated. We, the customer, enjoy seeing you smile.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The beach is always a good idea. A gem, free of charge. Just go there, do nothing. Yes
