The area is beautiful. The hotel is perfectly fine. But to charge $13 a night to park your car is nuts. I'm not going back. I found other hotels in the area where you park for free. Not in walking distance to downtown Ventura.

Dear Staythurstymyfriends,

It is never our intention to disappoint a guest in any way and we are truly sorry if you did not see the value in our hotel. Our pricing is indeed competitive with other full-service hotels in the area and we are in fact the closest hotel to the beach.

Once you get inside, this is a pretty typical Marriott. It's just a bit worn in, but fairly nice for the 100 - 140 price rage. The pool area is pretty. The rooms feel smallish. The bar was nice -with decent happy hour prices.

The thing I don't like about this place is the parking situation. The parking lot is gigantic, and you have to swipe your room card for access, and they charge you $13 to park - which seems really pricey considering how far out you feel from downtown. Parking should be free with open access.

Location - is not too far off beach/bike path, but not front and center, either. A bit out of the way of downtown. Road construction on access road spring 2014 makes things a little confusing upon arrival.

Dear Kevinandlara,

Thank you very much for posting your review of our hotel. While it is never our intention to disappoint a guest in any way, we apologize if you felt our parking was too expensive. We are the closest hotel to the beach in Ventura and our rates for parking are indeed in line with other full-service hotels that feature the location, services, and amenities that we do.

The hotel needs serious work in the windows department, with air and noise coming into the room that really cheapened the stay.
Staff was overly friendly and helpful.
Breakfast buffet cost effective.
5 min Walk to beach was great.
Pool was too small for this size property.
The area lacks better dining and attractions that would compliment this great stretch of beach.
Clientele had me wondering if this was more of a get away Holiday Inn for locals than a Marriott

Room Tip: I would not want to face the pool with the kids playing in the pool until 10pm, seemed more like a get away for locals.

My wife and I have returned to this hotel twice since I last reviewed it a year ago and I find that my experience with it continues to be very positive. I find the rooms very clean and very comfortable. The staff couldn't be more warm and accommodating. The food in the Pacifico Restaurant is, on the whole, quite good. The wait staff is very helpful and accommodating, especially the charming waitress (whose name we will be sure to record next trip) that never fails to serve my wife her Starbucks latte just the way she likes it. She makes you feel as if you were visiting an old friend. The amenities, fully stocked gym, pool and jacuzzi, are very clean and always inviting.

We were visiting Ventura to go sea cave kayaking off the Channel Islands and stayed at the Ventura Beach Marriott. We checked in very late, since we had flown into LAX, flight was delayed, and then had to drive up to Ventura. It was about 11:50pm when I was checking in, and I asked whether we would be charged for parking that evening - the front desk staff said yes, the charge for parking runs dark to dawn, or something like that. Whatever, I thought. $13/night to park is ridiculous, but what do you do. Our room did not have a refrigerator, so I asked the front desk staff if we could get one, and they said yes - no charge - and within minutes one of their staffers was at our door with a fridge - nice touch. The property is definitely showing its age, particularly with dated decor (carpets, drapes, wallpaper, fixtures, etc.). Due to an unexpected change in plans, we found ourselves needing to check out a day early, which the front desk staff said was not a problem and would not result in us incurring charge. They were very polite, professional, and courteous - consistently...all people, all the time. One thing to note - there is not really much in the way of dining options in the immediate area, so expect to need to drive to other parts of Ventura (not far away, though). There was a small grocery store nearby in a strip mall, and also in that same strip mall was a Starbucks and a terrific little donut shop (such great baked goods at very reasonable prices - so good I had to go there twice in two days).
