Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Ventura

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was nothing special and was much pricier than hotels close by. Refrigerator did not work, although was replaced the next day-with one that did not match any other appliances in the room. No smoking area out of the rain. Only really positive comment is 1 front desk staff was outstanding.

In general all is good! The pool is too far. The breakfast is Ok. Harbor view makes your day.

Enjoyable stay in a beautiful room with a beautiful view. Then a nice breakfast to start our day off the next day. Every staff member was friendly and helpful.

Hotel was satisfactory for the one night that i stayed there.

Love the location and the hotel was comfortable and accommodating especially for the price!

If there was a pool that would be perfect. I wanted to swim and when I arrived I found there is no pool. Kinda disappointed

wonderful stay will do it again, defiantly will recommend

My husband and I were in Ventura to spend Valentines Day wknd. Our stay couldn't have been beaten anywhere else! Our room was clean and neat, and overlooked the marina. We spent the day at the harbor, --perfect weather, wonderful choices of restaurants, and shopping. Taking a scenic Duffy Boat ride around the harbor was a highlight! The next day we toured the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley! Your staff are all very friendly and helpful!!!

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.

Staff polite and professional, good breakfast buffet, great view of harbor

Very comfortable and relaxing. What a great weekend

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 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.

Very nice room, overlooked the harbor so the night view was beautiful with all the lights.

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.

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.

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.

the holiday inn express was quiet and comfortable, but the surroundig area was dead. we went to dinner nearby and had good meal but we were the only one's in the place.

great room at a great price! will defintely be back again!!!

This hotel is a straightforward Holiday Inn Express and it lived up to my expectations. The staff at the front desk were phenomenal.
