“Relax after a long drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights in July this year,it was our 3rd visit in 8 years,and was again an enjoyable experience,We had just completed Route 66 by car,so was important to have a few days in a great hotel to chill out a little.It has recently been redecorated and is clean and tidy throughout,checked in within minutes of asking and we're given a room on the 1st floor as requested.The pool is excellent and all other facilities were included in the room price,standard for Best Western and standard for the USA.Breakfast is also included and is buffet style,not a huge choice of foods but enough to start off your day. Ventura town is minutes away on foot,with bars and restaurants aplenty to choose from,also the beach and pier,both excellent are a 5 minute walk away,hard to beat the Best Western Ventura.

Room Tip: All rooms are large,clean,tidy and welcoming,and have excellent en-suite facilities,fridge,Tv etc..

Tired of driving, and wanting a clean, convenient last minute hotel to stay in, we checked out Trip Advisor's choices in Ventura. Best Western Plus was convenient, inexpensive and a familiar chain. It was late and after discovering a really cool restaurant with music in downtown Ventura, we went to the room to find a really updated, cozy, clean getaway. The modern leather/chrome desk chair and contemporary furnishings were a welcome change from some of the hotels we had stayed in at a much higher price. The bedding was wonderful, as was the mattress. While not a large room, it was really well laid out, with a privacy wall and vanity near the sinks and bathroom. The room was very quiet, too. The next morning we ran to the breakfast room and was really delighted to find scrambled eggs and seasoned potatoes along with all the other choices. The coffee was actually good! Not only did we think we scored a gem, we are planning on returning to check out Ventura nightlife, especially if we can stay here...I know this sounds like a fake review, but it isn't! So nice to be pleasantly surprised.

Great location, easy to walk to the beach and very handy for the shops and restaurants downtown. Everywhere in the hotel is clean and well maintained. Our room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom had a separate vanity unit with a large wardrobe, fridge and microwave. I had a problem getting on to the wifi with my ancient phone, the lady at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Once I got wifi it was superfast and no problems at all. The breakfast was great with a wide variety of items constantly replenished. It was all fresh and of good quality. We had a great stay and will definitely return.

I thought this Hotel was a great find. It is about 3 blocks from the beach which has a wonderful walking path. It is also only about 2-3 blocks away from downtown Ventura which has plenty of very nice restaurants. The hotel its self is very clean and quiet with a great staff. I will differently be staying here when I'm in the area.

I stayed here two nights for work. I checked in around midnight the first night and it was a breeze. I went into the room on the second floor up the stairs and no problem getting in. The bed was comfortable the tv and stations were fine. bathroom was simple and fine. Breakfast in the morning was fine. After work I was able to walk down to the pier in about 3 minutes. You go around the front to a side street and walk down to the railroad track were a pedestrian bridge is. The area walking to the pier is a little shady, but I went in the early evening and a lot of people were out. The carpet and walls in the room are old and look dirty, but there are clean just old. The walls inbetween the rooms are a little thin. I had to wake up early for work and most travelers there were watching tv till the early am or coming and going from their rooms and you can hear the doors open and close or people greeting each other.

Easy walk to downtown and restaurants. Very short drive to beach and pier. Short drive to Ventura Harbor. Excellent room for the money -very clean. Good breakfast with fresh, warm scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, juices, etc.

We had just spendt 4 nights at Disneyland and we were on our way back home. Only because we were exhausted were we able to withstand the noise. If you look past the train running next to the building it's a nice motel. Run very efficiently and gives you a good, hearty breakfast to start your day off. Great location. Certainly well worth it's value.
