When I pulled up after doing a gig in Los Angeles, I fully expected to encounter an absolutely mediocre, down at the heels, mid-50s/early 60s piece of crap Southern California garbage motel. I was wrong and surprised. Nice touches like a recently renovated bathroom, vanity and kitchen. Soft pillows and a great TV. This place is not bad it all!

Nice Pleasant stay, love the bed, spacious and comfortable, easy to find, easy access to restaurants. Older style but all you need, happy to stay again. Good range of tv channels to choose from. Off street parking.

Really nice rooms in this motel! I interacted with Patrick during checkin and he was friendly and accommodating, really great service. From the outside this place looks like a pretty standard motel... but when you open the door you are greeted by a clean room with comfortable beds and a HUGE TV. Then you take the corner and find the kitchen in a separate room! I think the kitchen is bigger and better equipped then the one at my house. Looks like new appliances including a full size fridge. Great place to stop over between the Bay Area and LA.

We were just looking for a cheap place to stay for a night while driving through and were impressed by the quality of the room we stayed in! It was a spacious room with a kitchen and clean bathroom. Everything smelled fresh and we really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was professional and helpful. It was an excellent deal on the price!

We were really surprised when we arrived in Ventura and saw our hostel accommodation. The room was totally renovated and was really big with a nice jacuzzi and a big TV. The room was very clean and the bed totally comfortable. The kitchen was also nice and we had a lot of space in the refrigerator and for cooking. The bathroom was also very clean with a nice shower. We totally recommend to stay here, the staff is very friendly, too.

A must see, this place has a jacuzzi and a huge 50" tv, and that's just in the bedroom! It's clean, has a full kitchen and anything else you could want provided by friendly staff - I only wish the checkout was later so I could have another jacuzzi!

A place for special interest, if you want a dirty, filty place which should have been closed years ago, this is your place. If you goes on crack it's maybe OK, but if you have bad lungs and not forgotten your glasses, stay away, better to slepp in your car!

We were nicely surprised when we stayed here recently. The kitchen was full sized with updated appliances. The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet for being on a main thoroughfare. I would stay here again. We stayed in 2 different rooms and the one that was "handicapped accessible" was in the process of being updated (I'll do a separate review for this room). The people at the front desk were friendly and eager to please.

It was Clean, and quiet, came with a hot tub, kitchen, and free wifi. Fresh sheets and towels :) Some things needed maintenance like chipped tile, very little kitchen utensils, but you cant beat it for $100

We stayed for 2 nights to visit Los Padres National Forest and Channel Islands National Park. The location was good enough for this purpose, with a grocery very close by.
