“Great place to stay and play”
Reviewed 24 November 2011

Very nice place to stay, Courtous staff who went out of their way to make my visit a pleasure. All of the employees mad an effort to say hello and call me by name, very impressed. Rooms a nice and clean, Lounge is very large and comfortable. Surrounding area has plenty of nightlife and the beach is close by. I will stay here again no dought.

This was our second stay at this Marriott and we'll be back whenever in the area. We stayed for 2 nights. We were welcomed with one of the warmest greetings we've had at any hotel. We got there a little early and Mike at reception checked to make sure our room was ready. He recommended a nearby restaurant for dinner (Brophy's), showed us how to get there and sent us up to our lovely room with the usual, wonderful Marriott bed. Spacious room, comfortable furniture and a balcony view of the ocean. We ate in the hotel's restaurant for one dinner & breakfast and had terrific service and tasty food both times. It's also a great location-close to the freeway, restaurants and shopping. Looking forward to a return visit.

Pros: Good to Great Bed, Upscale, Valet, Clean

Cons: No Great Spa

I stayed at the Marriott on my husband's business trip. We met up with a friend in the evening and just stayed one night.

We usually stay at the hotel with the dome covered jacuzzi but on this trip the other place was full. We settled for the Marriott and had expectations of nice experience because of the name. We arrived to valet service and had about a 5 minute wait to get through the line for check-in. Check in was simple enough and we got a room with a pool area view on the first floor.

The room was very nice and upscale. The decor and ambience was adult and sophisticated. The bed was very nice. We did have a drink at the bar but otherwise, our time wasn't spent at the hotel.

I couldn't do anything at this hotel but have a drink. So, for a quick clean place with a great bed and the sound of running water, this place was good. Because the grounds don't offer more amenities, this hotel is limited.

Fairly standard out-of-town Mariott, but rooms are big and comfortable and public aeas bright and airy. The In and Out across the street is a bonus!

Had high expectations of staying after booking online. Was disappointed. Stayed a week ago and upon entering my room there was a strong smell of cigarettes. I used the phone and requested a room change, which was handled promptly and I appreciated. My new room did not have the cigarette smell. Hotel does feel tired though and needs an upgrade. Nothing special. I also felt very disconnected from rest of the hotel and didn't really understand even where the beach was that is advertised on thier website as "200 steps" from the hotel. I never even saw the beach or ocean. Will stay elsehwhere in the future.

I stayed here recently and feel like I either got an old room, or the hotel needs an upgrade. Our hair dryer was broken, there was dried blood or feces on one of the bath towels, and it sounded like our upstairs neighbors were playing with bowling balls all day. Plus, the A/C unit hummed like a low-flying helicopter and the pipes screamed whenever someone nearby was using their shower.

I'm sure the staff would have accommodated us with another room (they were very friendly), but there no way to know if the other rooms would've been in the same condition.

On the plus side, the hotel was very close to the event I was attending in Ventura, the lobby area is very nice, and, like I said, the staff was friendly.

Room Tip: See if you can take a look at your room before you agree to pay for it..

I stayed here after a couple of nights at the Crowne Plaza up the road. I preferred the Marriott and will stay here again. The rooms are better and parking was much easier here. I will stay here again in the future.
