    Location

    Carpet needs to be replaced. The upholstered chair was stained/dirty - didn't really want to sit in it. Grout and caulking in bathtub could use a deep cleaning.

    Very good

    Comfortable beds patio was nice by restaurant area with firepit.

    Too many bums outside by the hotel. Public parking to hotel was not easy for guests. The only way to go was through stinks bathrooms where the bums hung out. The front desk girl was rude at check in. The view of the ocean was side view instead of front view, but the patio kind of made up for it a little bit.

    Very good

    The staff were very friendly and attentive to a person. Breakfast was very good...the eggs benedict we're outstanding. Parking was quite convenient. The proximity to the beach was a very nice feature.

    The lounge sported a single 26" HD TV behind the bar which made relaxing with a drink and watching college football less than satisfying. $6.47 for a draft beer was highway robbery. The building orientation (perpendicular to the beach) gave every room a marginal ocean view. Although our room was advertised as an ocean view room, in fact, it was a Rt. 101 and parking structure view with a bit of beach off to the right (we stayed in Room 1113).

    Superb

    View of ocean was great! Maids and desk staff very good. I loved downtown Ventura which was an easy walk from hotel. Bed was very comfortable, Restaurant was quite good

    No free internet in room and lousy computers in business office. Bathroom was small and lacked shelving. Bad cable tv selection-- very limited

    View of parking ramp, homeless people all around property, room was very damp and smelled like mold/mildew and pets, very uncomfortable damp beds, 15 year old outdated tv, cigarette burns all over carpet, no complimentary breakfast, water in room, or internet. Cockroaches running around outside and inside, parking lot and landscaping was very saturated with homeless peoples' urine. Poor security. Automatic charge per night for highly limited first-com-first-serve (and never available) parking.

    Good

    Our stay was nice, except for the room being right next to the freeway, took away from the beach. Toliet ran the entire time, needs to be fixed, wasting water and annoying. Room was nice but outdated, not worth the money spent. Beds were not very comfortable either. Staff was nice especially the bell boy, only 2 carts for the hotel and parking was not easy. Overall would not return.

    Superb

    We feel we got pretty much what we expected...a nice clean room, BEACHSIDE!...we didn't expect the Ritz or 5 star accommodations...for $200 a night (included breakfast for 2) we feel we got our money's worth....great little balcony to watch the sunset...walk on the beach...highly recommend steak/seafood rest next door...all the reviews I read before staying said pretty much this & they are correct...we plan on returning but will stay 2 nights next time so as to truly soak this up....I Guess that the real proof--- we plan to return If you can find better value on a so cal beachside hotel...I couldn't find it & we do this every year the past 4 years

    Please note these items are could be better (not should be for the$$$): Yes hotel decor, carpet ect could use updating Yes the main parking lot could be bigger Yes the elevators could be better Yes it could not be next to the freeway & Amtrak But then it would be $400 & we wouldn't be any happier....

    Location,price,friendly staff,good food,especially creme brûlée and ice-cream in carmalized cups.

    The lobby is too noisy because of stone floors; also cold. But the view is terrific. When it is cold and gray, asit was when we stayed, needs actual and ambience warmth.

    Fabulous

    I loved the location and have been there more than once.

    Parking is bad - not enough. Should have more tv stations for that price.

    right off the freeway and by the railroad tracks but the windows kept alot of the noise to a dull roar.

    room described as a full ocean view - it was maybe a partial view, most of it was of the parking structure. due to this i feel that i overpaid for my room. emailed manager, received an out of officer response. nothing else.

    Fabulous

    Buffett was good with good selection of items.

    Buffett was Sat and Sun only. Would be better daily. Did not agree with up charge for Sat and Sun! OK for "new" check in's but should not apply to guest staying two weeks!

    Very good

    The location was right on the beach, had beautiful ocean and mountain views. The price was very good for the location. Most of the staff was helpful and professional. Several restaurants were within walking distance. Hotel has ac and the rooms were a decent size as beachfront hotels go. Beautiful walking riding trail along the shore, very close to the pier.

    The location was noisy located right off of the 101 freeway and next to train tracks. The facility needs to be renovated and updated. The filter in the bathroom was dirty and sheets with dried gum were put onto our bed one day, discovered in the middle of the night. Parking was limited. There was a constant drip on our balcony from the ac unit of the room above ours.

    Nice resort. Good location close to all restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well maintained. The room had a refrigirator and a microwave.

    The pool was a bit small for this size hotel and people had difficulties finding an unoccupied pool chair. The hotel is near the train tracks and passing trains were giving loud signal even at night.
