“Part great, part not-so-great”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

The room got pretty hot and stuffy, and it was difficult to sleep with the fan on, because it was so loud, yet difficult to sleep with it off because of the heat. There appeared to be no other air conditioning in place, so it was the fan or nothing at all.

However, the decor of the room was charming, the price was very reasonable (and there's a 10% military discount), and having a kitchen was a nice convenience/money-saver.

We were looking for a decent place for the weekend near Ventura and found Casa Via Mar on the internet. It had decent Trip Advisor reviews and the price was half of anything available in Ventura. The front desk was very friendly and directed us to our room which was located at the back of the resort near the pool and tennis courts.
From the pictures I saw on the internet I was expecting an "old school" southern California Casa and that is what we got, but I was not expecting everything to be so nice and clean. The room was immaculate from the floors and bathroom to the bedding. Everything at the resort seems to have been recently painted and detailed without losing the "Retro Chic 70's" feeling. You could tell that this place had been quite the tennis hot spot in the day.
The pool was surrounded by palm trees, huge, heated, salt water filtrated and wonderfully immaculate, as was the spa. With a nightly rate of $77 for a huge standard room with a king bed, I would highly reccomend staying here.

Clean and reasonable priced. This hotel is comfortable and close to everything. Clean rooms are a plus and the pool and hot tub were working great! Free breakfast and they have happy hour...Soda, chips and salsa were complementary. Well drinks were $1.00.

I have stayed here numerous times on business. There is plenty of parking ever if you are towing a trailer. The rooms are clean some have updated tvs. There are rooms with small kitchens. The hotel is in a 70s motif however everything works. Some of the rooms do not have air because the hotel is down by the coast it's pretty cool all year round if it's a concern you should call ahead. There is a pool and the hotel is very secure they recently put in security camera that cover the entire outside. Lot's of stuff around too, restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is about 1/2 mile from the channel island harbor. They have a happy hour from 5-7pm wed through Sat. Say hi to Bill for me. The happy hour is held in the same building as the pool and the free breakfast.

Room Tip: Bottom floor on the inside of the courtyard

We stayed here on Jan 1st and we really liked it. It is older style so expect that but it was clean, big, the bed is very comfortable and the staff is great! Ask for the managers special and you get an even better price, then if you ask for an upgrade at check in they will give you a larger room with a full kitchen and a bottle of wine. Its located in the middle of everything fun. We will go back here again!!

Room Tip: ask for one further to the back, its more quiet, the tennis and pool are located there, and the free...

Despite one problem with pillow cleanliness when we first checked in *which was promptly resolved), this was a very nice 3-day stay. In the 1960's this must have been the place to stay. The breakfast room is decorated with pictures of tennis stars of the past (Evonne Goolagong, Arthur Ashe, etc). The rooms are being updated as is the roof. This is a family-owned hotel and they want to make your stay as good as possible. Staff are friendly and the breakfast room has a good variety of food and is spotlessly clean. The rooms are huge and very comfortable. We will return here in the future.
