We just spent 3 days at this wonderful location! 25 minutes to Santa Barbara or Santa Monica. We were not expecting much since the property is right off the 101 an and older Marriott but we were so delighted to find a hotel that was beautifully maintained.

The area is beautiful. The hotel is perfectly fine. But to charge $13 a night to park your car is nuts. I'm not going back. I found other hotels in the area where you park for free. Not in walking distance to downtown Ventura.

Once you get inside, this is a pretty typical Marriott. It's just a bit worn in, but fairly nice for the 100 - 140 price rage. The pool area is pretty. The rooms feel smallish. The bar was nice -with decent happy hour prices. The thing I don't like about this place is the parking situation. The parking lot is... More

The hotel needs serious work in the windows department, with air and noise coming into the room that really cheapened the stay. Staff was overly friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet cost effective. 5 min Walk to beach was great. Pool was too small for this size property. The area lacks better dining and attractions that would compliment this great stretch...
