Not bad for the price.

Would recommend Sun, Dec 6, 2015
The hotel is located right off the freeway and across from the train. We heard the train pass by pretty often and it honks its horn every time it passes. It's very loud. The hotel is definitely older but they do a pretty good job at keeping it up. I enjoyed the shower in bathroom a lot. They had mini Pantene shampoo and conditioner for free. The morning breakfast was actually pretty good. They had someone cooking food in the stove too hot and ready. Lots of options for food. Biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, eggs, hashbrowns, waffles, yogurt, hit and cold cereal etc. over all I would give the hotel 3 stars. Definitely not the nicest or the newest hotel, but is great for a one night passing through and need somewhere stay.

Old hotel but great location

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 9, 2015
For the cost, this hotel doesn't seem worth it. Aside from the nice down comforter, the room is about the quality of a 2 star hotel. The room and hotel are old--functioning, but old. The elevator is a little sketchy and the room carpeting was :fine (no tears or stains) but way out of date and the room smelled a bit musty. I got a room with a balcony and fireplace. The balcony was nice, although the surround was solid (not a rail) so when seated, the view was a bit shallow, but it was nice to see the mountains when having cheap morning coffee they offered. The fireplace, though, was awkward. Actually, the whole room was set up awkwardly--the TV was not in front of the bed, but to the left, so that only one person in bed could see the TV in an even semi-comfortable manner. Then, the fireplace was really far from the bed so the only real way to enjoy it was to sit in the formal high back chair which was not really comfy for reading or watching TV. So the fireplace is really a waste, unfortunately. The pool is outdoors so not usable much of the year. The breakfast was OK--the food warmers for the hot food buffet didn't keep the eggs and hash browns all that warm. It is, however, in a great location, a short walk to main street. So if that's what you're looking for and this is the cheapest option, then go for it.

Easter Family Trip

Would recommend Fri, Apr 10, 2015
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.

Would recommend Thu, Feb 19, 2015
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.
