I've been traveling to Ventura for pleasure and business for many, many years. I've always noticed the Pierpont Inn just off the freeway and it looked like a very elegant place to stay. This trip we decided to stay. While this is a historic property, little of the history is retained and the rooms are just average, not especially large or elegant and updated piecemeal. It was chilly the night we stayed there but our heater did not work. A call to the front desk proved worthless. The bed was comfortable.
