Lovely harbor stay

What a pleasant surprise to stay in this comfortable hotel a short and lovely walk (across the harbor) from the shops and restaurants at the Harbor Place. We walked from the hotel to the shopping center (along the marina and through the Ventura Boatyard) and crossed the street to the beach where we enjoyed another spectacular sunset behind the Channel Islands. A perfect spot to enjoy a truly special spot on the California coast.

relaxing getaway.

The staff is super friendly!! Very accommodating. Second time staying at this hotel. Was a bit further away from the harbor this time, which was a bummer because the first time we were within straight full view. This time we were off to side. Harbor view is why we stay at this hotel. Comfortable bed and couch. Nice big shower/tub nothing to fancy. Breakfast in the mornings is decent. Can tell it comes from a box. But hey, it's complimentary so I'm not complaining! I love this hotel and do plan on staying there again in the future. Love the location. Ours very convenient being central to all of our favorite places.

the view!

The staff were very nice very helpful. The room was great. With a great view. Bed smelt fresh and clean. Bathroom was moderately clean. Found some hairs in the bathroom and shower which Is a peeve for me. And the parking fee is, I feel, unnecessary. Should be included. But majority of the stay was great minus the few negative points.

A Beautiful Location!

The room was on the 3rd floor and overlooked the Ventura Harbor, absolute beautiful location! We sat out on the deck and watched the boats coming and going, very nice. The breakfast in the morning was also very nice, good choices, fresh fruits, pancakes and the eggs and bacon were done just right, no complaints! Every one of the staff that we came in contact with was very polite, helpful and and always had a pleasant "Hello" for you. The only draw back was the $10 a day parking fee.

Not a bad stay

The room was clean and the help was very nice. The fridge was unplugged and when we plugged it in, it rattled and banged and made me understand why it was unplugged. Also the heater was a little slow on the uptake, but finally worked fine. Parking cost $10 but being at the harbor, they have to regulate it so guests have a place to park amongst the crowds. I would stay there again.

A horrible experience.

We specifically reserved at this hotel due to the amazing sunset views across the harbor. When we tried to check in, we were informed that they had moved our reservation to a nearby hotel with no notice and no option to cancel with a refund. This being the reason for the trip, it was basically a wasted trip. The new hotel does not offer the same views. Had they notified us a few days earlier, we might have been able to reschedule. We believe we were bumped because we had the lowest price reservations. Never mind the sunset, we won't be back.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

If you're going to the Camarillo outlets, or anywhere else to the East during the evening rush hour, set your GPS to avoid freeways. There is a back way with 55MPH speeds, low traffic and few lights.
