“Older Hotel but Standard Marriott Rooms”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

This appears to be an older facility, but the rooms are the standard Marriott quality that one would expect. The rooms are generally clean, comfortable and well-maintained. It is certainly not a bad place, but do not expect anything amazing either. A lot of the complaints I have seen on here are about no free breakfast and a $10 per day parking fee. Is that really a big deal?

The property itself is nice, room clean, etc. and they allow pets, which is a plus, but....the service in the restaurant leaves alot to be desired. Slow, with attitude. Location was great, convenient to the harbor, day trips to Carpinteria and Ojai, all in all, I would stay there again, just with a little lower expectations.

Compared to the Marriott in Monterey the night prior, this was a different world. Great staff, nice property, amenities and room service. I will definitely be back and am thankful that the weekend ended on such a positive note!

This is a large, characterless place right near the freeway but actually suited our purposes fine. A good standard of room and excellent service particularly from the helpful reception staff and good value room service too.

Some good things = nice staff & beautiful pool area also nice walk to the beach BUT linens were old & stained, elevator out of order, $10 extra to park + $10 extra for internet + $26 for two glasses of wine in the lounge = too much money for a mediocre property-there has got to be better options in Ventura.

This hotel is very nice and located in a nice part of town. Very close to the Ventura harbor which is really cool and is about 30 mins from Santa Barbara and an hour from LA. Hotel clean, staff was very nice and hotel is a few min walk from the beach. Definitely would stay here again if we ever come back to the area.

My mom and aunt were in visiting and they wanted to explore Ventura a little so we crashed at the Marriott. The beds were so comfortable. We honestly did not want to get out of bed. Great location and close to the water. The staff was really friendly and even upgraded us to the executive level.
Very pleasant stay.
