Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach
Ranked #3 of 23 Hotels in Ventura
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Ashley, Eric and Kelsey in the C Street restaurant in the Crowne Plaza Hotel were exceptional servers at dinner last night and should be highly commended for their wonderful service to our family of 26. They were called in from home to work as the restaurant management decided to close for dinner last night, not realizing that our family reunion members were arriving yesterday afternoon. They served us graciously, with huge smiles and a happy, helpful demeanor. They were very efficient and professional. We were all so thrilled that they came in from their off time to take care of us! Job well done you 3! Diane Warring.

Our family stayed at this hotel for four days and three nights recently. We stayed in a roomy Parlor Suite. What we loved about our stay was that we were able to do short day trips like Santa Barbara and other beaches up the Coast. We also enjoyed the pool and the Aqua bar. We also loved the beach outside the hotel, with its playground for the kids. Downtown Ventura is within walking distance. The staff was very friendly. Look forward to doing it again!

We stayed here for one night prior to our boat trip out to Santa Cruz Island (great, by the way!). We were warmly welcomed and given a room adjoining that of our daughter, which was convenient. Our fourth floor room had a great view of the beach and we could even hear the waves crashing at night. The hotel is a short walk from the many restaurants in downtown Ventura. While we were there it was overcast and a bit cold so we didn't get to enjoy the pool, but it looked nice - large and with comfortable pool furniture. The bed was nice and comfy, with nice linens. Actually the entire room seemed recently updated and was very nicely decorated. My only complaint would be that the website stated that all rooms have a refrigerator and microwave but we had neither. The front desk person said the fridges were all in use. No problem, but the website should be updated. Otherwise, a nice place to stay and wish we could have stayed more than one night to enjoy the stellar view.

This hotel was a great place to stay. Everything was very clean and very well taken care of. The staff is so friendly, they were always going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and that we were having a great time. The beds are amazing! So comfortable and slept so good. It is perfectly located and within walking distance to restaurants. Fun surf out front too. The downtown is so cute and really fun to walk around, so many great restaurants. Definitely recommend staying here. We had room 902 and it was on the 9th floor on the ocean view side of the hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 902 and it was on the 9th floor on the ocean view side of the hotel. great room!

I must admit, I am a local to Ventura. However, I recently moved to Boston and was looking for a place to stay with my boyfriend while visiting my family. I have been familiar with the property for years and it has seen MAJOR improvements since it's time as the Holiday Inn. It was really charming that as we were waiting in the line to check in, we overheard the conversation of the man checking in prior to us. He was in town celebrating his 54th wedding anniversary with his wife and had actually gotten married on the very beach the Crowne Plaza is located on. We ran into him later on and he was clearly having a blast at the hotel.

The rooms are simple and well equipped with all the usual necessities. We had a ocean view room that overlooked the pier and the Ventura shoreline. I don't know what the schedule is, but I don't think the railroad is used regularly. We actually only heard the train once and that was when we had the screen door to our porch open.

The hotel's best feature is easily it's location. As far as I know, it's the only hotel located on the beach all the way up to Carpinteria. Each morning we got to walk the trail along the beach and watch the surfers at C Street while drinking our hotel-provided coffee.

If you want to explore the the best of the city, I would definitely recommend this hotel. It is walking distance to downtown Ventura, so you can walk to a variety of souvenir and high end shops, but the real benefit is access to many bars without having to worry about transportation. If you don't feel like walking the two blocks to downtown Ventura, the hotel offers great happy hour specials in their lobby bar and lounge. Seriously, you can't bet their beer specials while watching the sunset from the lounge patio.

Like I said, I was born and raised in Ventura and Crowne Plaza is hands down the best Ventura has to offer. From the ever-cheerful staff to the killer location, I will continue to stay at the Crown Plaza even if my family moves out of town.

Room Tip: I would definitely recommend the ocean view room.

I am just coming off a series of business trips with my company and I stayed two days here.

Hotel is in a great location, I need to come back and bring my family because it smack on the beach.

Hotel staff is great with service and desire to please with a long list of positive amenities from WiFi, business services, room service and quick breakfast service.

The hotel guest rooms are big and clean and beds are excellent in comfort! Love this location just wish my family was there with me.
