I stayed here with my kids for 2 nights on a quick stop over through Port Huemene.
The rooms where nice and big and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom, also big and clean,but did not have a bathtub. Which is kinda a bummer for young kids.
Check in girl was very nice, and there is a complimentary breakfast each morning till 6 am- 9:30 am. Cereal, yogurt, bagels, simple, but free!!

The location is very convenient, close to the beach and lots of stores and restaurant.
I would stay there again.
Nothing fancy just a safe, clean convenient place to stay and be comfortable.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for a weekend getaway from Los Angeles. It is nicely located a block or so from quite a nice beach. The hotel staff were very friendly and nice. They handled our check-in and everything else we required very competently and quickly. The room was huge, way more spacious than it needed to be, but we liked it. The Wi-Fi was sufficient. Breakfast is included and we found it to be a bit above par. Always a hot entree at HI Express, with quite a few other options. There are a few shops and eating establishments across the street so if you want to park your car and leave it, you can. The pool area was decent and we used the pool both days, only once finding any one else there. Be prepared to run into military personnel in and around the hotel due to it's proximity to the Naval base, but they were polite and quiet. We will be returning to this hotel on our next beach getaway.

Room Tip: Not much of a view from any of the rooms we saw.

For a coastal property, this hotel provides a good value compared with other locations. Our room was quiet, clean, and comfortable; however, we would have preferred a conventional tub insert to avoid leaving a watery mess on the floor after each shower. Breakfast choices were plentiful, served in the bright and spacious lobby area. The free Internet connection was fast and reliable. Although we were not recognized as Gold Elite Rewards Club members, the desk clerk did make some excellent recommendations for our sightseeing trips up the coast. You might have to wait several days for Rewards Points to show up, which is a hassle if you travel as much as we do. Be sure to check that you receive your Welcome Bonus Points, too. (We had to call the hotel several times for ours.) Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay and recommend this property.

Quick last minute booking. Rooms available, staff nice and pleasant, rooms clean, no on site restaurant, buffet style breakfast with the basics. Good coffee. If needing laundry done, don't use the ones on site, TOO EXPENSIVE, go across the street to laundromat. Beds are not sleep numbers yet VERY comfy.

We stayed here for mother's day weekend. Three rooms, 6 adults, 3 children. Since Holiday Inn bought this hotel it's had a nice update and the rooms are much better, more modern and clean. The old decor was very dated 'country home' and this is simple and modern. Beds were nice. Big refrigerators in the rooms. They no longer have a booze license so the afternoon happy hour is juice, but you can bring your own and drink it openly in the lounge. The pool needs some updating and more furniture. There was not enough places to sit. The staff couldn't find a wine opener, even though they said they had 7 somewhere...but that's a small negative. Staff was cool, friendly, and the location is very close to the beach...BUT...the beach is GONE! Gone, washed away by mega waves a few weeks ago. It's blocked off by gates because what was a large sandy beach is now dangerous rocks. Crazy. Would stay here again, for sure, and will in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for the 3rd floor

We stayed here for 4 weeks as my husband had a short term project in nearby Camarillo. The hotel is pretty good, well furnished, spacious and for the most part clean. However, the carpets may look clean, but after two hours of toddling around barefoot, my 1 year old's feet were completely dirty, like she was walking outside. I highly suggest a regular shampooing! (This is a suggestion for any and all hotels!) Staff were pretty nice and always happy to see my daughter when we came in. Port Hueneme is pretty boring in my opinion, no real good restaurants, just all fast food. Besides the beach, you have to drive at least 30 minute somewhere to find something to do. We had a rental car so I that wasn't an issue. Still, one of the better holiday inns we've visited!

The hotel is located in a sketchy area so be careful when walking across the street for food. The rooms were big and clean but the run-down elevator made a bad early impression. The shower was very weak and poorly lit. Breakfast was fine if you like to load up on carbs. The protein option (bacon and, alternately, sausage was only lukewarm). Fresh fruit alternated between green bananas and a basket of apples and oranges. Ironically Dole uses the port just a few blocks down the street. On the plus side, this was the quietest hotel I can remember staying in. Must be due to the large military clientele.
