Best Western Plus Inn Of Ventura
Ranked #2 of 23 Hotels in Ventura
Reviewed 14 November 2013

For the price and location this was a good value. The people at Best Western were extremely helpful and polite. The only problem we had was the bed not being made. In order to be green we asked that only the bed be made only to find upon our return housekeeping at not been our room. Upon check in we found that there was no shampoo, we called the front desk and was told housekeeping would bring a bottle of shampoo to our room, the shampoo never arrived.

Cyndy at front desk called prior to arrival date as we requested 2 rooms next together since my elderly parents were traveling with us. I've never had any hotel call to try to accomodate our requests prior to our arrival. Thank you Cyndy. Their breakfast area was clean, great server constantly filling the food/beverages/waffle batter up......we had to tip her for her hard work! It was tiring watching her work so hard. Rooms were clean, bed comfortable, prefer better foam type pillows but my parents liked the pillows so everyone is picky about their type of pillows. There were windows in frontf room & in bathroom which we liked as did not want air on. Being downtown, there were no transients hanging in our parking area or near our rooms, amazing. Maids were hard at work. It was a full house with decent customers. We were told most rooms were updated with a few pending. People that got older rooms probably paid less so shouldn't complain. Better to have a safe & clean place than not. We loved it & will return. Good location. Clean pool & hot tub area. Clean parking area. We loved the Mission Buenaventura Catholic Church nearby, it was beautiful. Sure beats the $150. plus hotels by the beach nearby when you're not spending much time other than to sleep in the room. Thank you Best Western Plus. P.S. Vagabond restaurant is excellent next door with late hours......wouldn't stay in the Vagabond Motel rooms though. They aren't as nice as Best Western! :)

Room Tip: We were in room 104 & 105 which was reasonably quiet, never heard the trains passing.

pat_lynnCalifornia-
Thank you for such a great review. Most of our bathrooms have been remodeled and we plan to finish them in the upcoming year as well as adding a new fitness room and exterior remodel. Cyndy did ask me to say she wishes you well on everything regarding your credit card. We hope that you will come back and see us and all our new changes!

This hotel is a great value. My husband & I were very pleased with the cleanliness & the bed was very comfortable. We both like that they have washable remotes for the TV, we all know how germy they can be. We will stay here again in the future!

Clean, comfortable with very helpful staff. The staff was able to suggest a variety of restaurants in the area that were within walking distance. This was important to us. The breakfast was more than we expected. We would recommend this motel to our friends. We will definitely stay there again when in the area.

I booked this based on the reviews here but it was a mistake. The room was in need of serious repairs. The toilet door would not close. The bathroom window would not close. The toilet seat was very loose. Poor sealant coming away around the sink. The laundry only has one washer/dryer for which one had to join a waiting list to obtain the key which took a couple of hours. Good point is that it only 2 blocks from downtown which is very vibrant with restaurants and bars and was in walking distance to great pier for the sunsets.

Hello Moneyfools-
Let me start by saying I am sorry that you were not completely satisfied with your stay. When these things are reported to the front desk, we respond immediately so that they can be resolved. If they were issues that could not be fixed in a timely manner during your stay we would have found you another room that was to your satisfaction. As long as we are made aware and are given the chance we will see to it, that you are happy. That's our goal. I am again very sorry we fell short of your expectations and hope that you may give us another chance in the future.
Sincerely

I loved my stay at the best western plus in Ventura. Since the family was all going fishing the location couldn't have been better. Cyndy was awesome and she even helped me out with finding the right rooms with the right amount of beds. Breakfast was good with eggs, sausages, potatoes, beans, waffles, cereal, yogurt and more!

Really I should give this place an excellent. We are enjoying what we call our "Best Western Tour of Coastal California" with four nights in four separate coastal BWesterns all at 20% off the cheapest (AAA) rate all thanks to our good buddies here at Tripadvisor (an October promotion we were thrilled to snag). Ventura, Santa Barbara, Cambria (San Simeon) and Carmel. This is the least expensive with a rate of under $90 a night. The room is newly refurbished with a great bed, clean carpeting, stone vanity and really nice bathroom. There is great lighting, excellent air and the room is extremely well soundproofed. Pool and hot tub, although I forgot my swimsuit (but its cool and foggy, so who am I kidding?).

And, yes, if you are familiar with my Larkspur Landing rant, there were FABulous waffles this morning at the FREE breakfast buffet. Scrambled eggs, sausages, potatoes, yogurt, breads and bagels and cream cheese and NOT ONE, but TWO waffle makers, one which made BIG waffles and one which made for MINI waffles. Really folks, these were the very best waffles I've had in ages. THANK YOU Best Western.

I am wondering what defines the new "Plus" and "Premium" categories, so hopefully I'll learn more as we progress north along this beautiful coastline and go from $88 to $220 per night (yes, Carmel....).

This BW is well located to the SoCal car culture just off the 101, there's a cute little diner in the motel next door (Vagabond) if you want to catch dinner, but really the best thing is that Cafe Zach is only three blocks down the street -- we walked and were the ONLY pedestrians in sight. How San Francisco of us!

BW Ventura -- I was impressed!

(small note - the only thing penetrating what appear to be very well sound insulated rooms is the train track directly behind the motel. not sure you can escape that one but try for the rooms closer to the pool. also, the 2nd floor rooms would offer better visual privacy as all windows open onto the car court)

Room Tip: see the review. 2nd floor away from stairs will give you more privacy but you'll walk more. fo...
