So many motels these days are obviously cutting corners, with worn out mattresses and towels, and soap that comes out of a dispenser in the wall. Not this place, thank god! Decent beds, linens, plus those little bars and tiny bottles of soap/shampoo which now feel downright retro. It also felt luxurious after the last two s***holes I stayed in. This place even provided a generous breakfast that you picked up in the lobby and took back to your room, to comply with COVID precautions. The host was super nice and encouraged me to take as much food and beverage as I wanted. Did I mention that this place is also a 10 min walk from the beach/pier and right next door to a nice park and several good restaurants? An amazing deal, esp. at this price.

Ruben at the desk was nice. View was great from room (loud though). I feel for the amount you pay to stay here it should have been disclosed somewhere that this motel was turned into a COVID homeless shelter for a while and it seems that A LOT of the residents are still living there.

Vent above the toilet was dripping brown liquid and the manager didn’t really seem to care

I wish we knew the hot tub was gone. Otherwise it is a great hotel, great staff, great breakfast, amazing location

This hotel is very conveniently located, within walking distance to downtown and the pier. Rooms were clean and staff was friendly and helpful.

The property seems to be newly renovated. Everything was nice and comfortable.

Nice and close to shops, restaurants and the pier.

Very nice and clean. Up dated look in the rooms. Would have preferred not being so close to the train tracks, but at least the trains do stop running at night. Staff, especially Monica, was very helpful and understanding as I had come in from a long drive and was tired.

No shower curtain, air didn't work, and light bulb blinking when we got in.

Nice hotel, rooms were very modern. Breakfast was excellent, many choices. Reasonable price

I got very sick from whatever they used to spray this room. I almost had to go to a doctor. Made me vomit.

Rooms were nice, clean, and modern. Comfortable vibe but really hard beds. Staff is friendly. Breakfast was excellent! Hotel is walking distance to downtown and the beach. No working jacuzzi as seen in pics though :( however the hotel next door let us use their spa and pool for the time being. Their pool was heated too, so that was awesome. Housekeeping was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Appears to be recently remodeled. Good location close to the downtown district and beach. Staff is courteous and friendly. The room was clean and wifi signal was very good. Breakfast was also pretty good.

We went to Ventura for a short anniversary trip. The hotel was great, very retro redecorating, great breakfast & the staff was great. Easy walk to a beautiful beach.... will definitely be back.

My husband, daughter, and I usually stay at the holiday inn express, but decided to give this hotel a try. Driving in, we were a little uneasy because it looked much smaller and rinkydink than we expected. Once we got in the room, however we were pleasantly surprised to find it was a recently refurbished room with upgraded amenities. Easily one of the cheapest and most comfortable rooms I've stayed in. The shower was pretty relaxing with the rain shower head. And its still close enough to Carpenteria and Santa Barbara! Will stay again if we travel here again!

Very friendly staff. They are renovating but the noise wasn't a problem. Breakfast was good. The room has everything you need, except a makeup mirror. Walking distance to a lot of restaurants, but I wouldn't walk at night, as a female, due to the nearby homeless population.

Nothing special. My son and dau in law's room view was of dumpsters, but thankfully there were bars on the window. Noise from train not too bad but from laundry room loud. We booked abt. 2 months in advance. Not satisfied

I like this hotel as it is very accessible to the beach, excellent fish restaurant 2 blocks away and Ventura County Fair within reasonable walking distance - saving the hassle of parking. Full breakfast - very good. Comfortable room with microwave and fridge.

We stayed the night here so that we could drive to the SB Zoo in the morning. Comfy beds, clean room, good breakfast. Good value for the price we paid. One thing though, I think the website says the pool is heated, though it wasn't. No biggie, but would have been nice if it was.
