Driving down the CA coast I needed a place to sleep. This hotel was incredibly cheap and the location is pretty safe. I was able to walk to the nearby restaurants which were amazing. Downtown Ventura is a pretty nice area and doesn't seem like you have to worry about crime too much. Like I said, this was a great...

Walking distance to Main Street and all the downtown shops. Also, under a 10 minute walk to the beach and pier. Clean spacious rooms and comfy beds. Pool and jacuzzi are a plus. The onsite restaurant is great!

Overall great stay! The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Pros: Walkway over the freeway to the beach & Pier was right off the back of the property; walking distance to downtown w/many restaurant options within a few blocks; free continental breakfast Cons: May have been our location (first floor) but it was very noisy - it felt like anyone...

Hi, I'm sorry, I was on a conference call. I did get your email. I followed up the the girl at the front desk concerning the charges. She said that they did have you with 3 rooms, but had not charged the credit card. She only charged for 2 rooms at check out. I'm sorry the confusion this caused.

We had a great time staying at Vagabond Ventura. It was near to our agenda of visiting Channel Islands. However, the toilet bowl has some leak, water is oozing to the door. Please follow-up on your housekeeper, I remember keeping my coin purse and bunch of keys under my pillow at Room 110. We stayed there after Thanksgiving Nov 25th...

Front desk was fine the cafe was good. Really bad experience with the cleaning lady reusing old sheets and pillow cases that were really filthy. really nasty feeling overall in the rooms and with the cleaning staff which to me is my main concern when sleeping in a bed that someone else has used.

Hi Karen I just spoke to housekeeping and maintenance about the shower handles. We will order more and replace them. I'm sorry we missed this. We are going to be replacing the carpet this winter. I'm not sure what's wrong with the pool, but I'll look at it. Thanks for staying with us, we hope you come again.

Clean, comfortable, and close to restaurants, shops, and beach. No need to drive anywhere to have a relaxing time. Very reasonable. My dog enjoyed his stay too. A place we will return to when we need a weekend getaway from the LA area.

3 night stay to visit family. Room was ready early and even though it was previously a smoking room, there was no lingering smoke smell. Wonderful bed. Quiet room. Basic continental breakfast in lobby. Only downside - no hangars and staff didn't know where extras were kept. Have stayed here in the past and will definitely stay here again.
