“Inhabitable”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2012

This Inn/Suites is short of even being that. Yes, I looked by the beach, but the area is just run down. Just take a look at my pic's. For the price you pay, you are better off staying at the Holliday Inn or even better, take the 30 - 40 min drive and enjoy Santa Barabra. Much cleaner and the reception is welcoming. Don't try to negotiate a re-found, the Manager('s) don't return calls.

Room Tip: Holliday Inn guarantees the "Best Price" or your first night is free! Book early & sav...

Me and some friends stayed here a few weeks ago and lemme just say that for the price and location, it was perfect. We spent around 80$ a night for a few nights and recieved great service, the employees were very helpful, everything looked alot cleaner and better than the pix Ive seen others post, and I would live there if I had the chance.

Sincerely,
Joseph

Employees of this establishment are horrible at best. The girl that worked on Sat 6/2, must be employed here, because she inn't employable at good establishments. Her attutide is just horrible. I guess she fits in with the rest of the place.

House keeping is non-existant. Room was very dirty and un kept. The room had one blind on half of the window, the other half was broken off. It looked like the walls had various items attached at one time, but were were now ripped off of the walls. It did have a TV but the remote didn't work. The little refrigerator looked like it hadn't worked for a long time and was filthy inside. The sink drains were pluged and smelled really bad. The bathtub was so filthy it wasn't usable. The main office was usually unaccessable during the day, as the folks working here were never there and the office closed around 10 pm. Familes and Couples, definitely DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!! Singles, BEWARE!!!! Hookers, recommended. (Just remember the walls are paper thin and all of your conversations can be heard by your neighbors...

Room Tip: No satisfactory Rooms available here!!!

We were a bit leary after reading some of the bad reviews but with it being a holiday weekend and everything booked we took a chance. It was just as expected, a motel. Nothing fancy but much better than we expected and being able to make our own waffles was pretty fun and neat too. Its very close to the beach and thats what we wanted. We will be back.

Room Tip: we liked our room 105

We have been coming to Ventura and have stayed here many times when we are in town. This place is on the up and up from what we have seen, we are very pleased with the direction it has taken. They have to our surprise added nice outside patios at each downstairs room! We loved that, it made us be able to enjoy ourselves with privacy. The rooms seem to be much cleaner than in the past as well. You guys are doing a good job in that department as well. The staff has always been helpful, but we encountered some new faces and they went out of their way to accommodate all requests we had. We will be back!

Room Tip: the downstairs has their own private patios :)

My friends go there on a regular basis. It is old but clean. Staff is good. we know them all by name and they remember us. The Front desk has a frequent turnover but they try to accommodate as much as possible. The wireless is not great but the staff go above and beyond to get it hooked in. We have stayed in the upstairs suite and it was great with a patio, We have also stayed in the other rooms (upstairs and downstairs). The yogurt place is across the road and the liquer store. The beach is right there and the price is great. If I have an issue, I let the front desk know and they fix it right away. you will have to go there yourself. They will let you see the rooms. Overall a very fun getaway. I am going again this weekend.

Room Tip: Look at all the rooms they have available.

Do NOT be seduced by the location! It is terribly run down and disgustingly filthy. RUN AWAY! Broken furniture. Bed sheets dirty and had hair, so I tried the next bed but could not quite sleep after that - yucky cooties! I have short red hair ... see the photo of the hair in my bath/shower! And, seriously! this is the bath mat !!!

Room Tip: Do Not stay here
