While searching tripadvisor and other sites, many budget motels have current bad reviews. Rex was the exception and it was true. Car parking right outside your door. Quite at the rear rooms. Was very basic but for price it was ok. No coffee/tea making facilities probably the one downside missing the 5 star rating, but did have microwave/fridge. You can...

Planned a trip last minute to go to the Ventura Flea Market. Bring it was a Saturday night we really didn't want to spend $200 for an overnight. I knew this was an older motel but the rooms looked pretty nice online. For $90, the room were fairly large, had been renovated. Super soft comfortable beds, hard woods, nice bathroom...

Having, eventually, found someone to check us in, we were shown a room which was so dirty and cramped that we check straight out and went to the Best Western nearer town. Good job they didn't debit my credit card.

Reasonable motel stay in Ventura. Clean room with good lighting and fair decor.  King size bed was a bit softer than I prefer but I slept ok. Large good quality flat screen tv.  Bathroom was spacious and reasonably modern though shower curtain was stained and needs to be replaced. A few cons: no kettle/coffee maker or hairdryer which was quite...

I stopped at this place for one night. The room was spacious and clean. Bathroom and furniture appear a bit outdated, but everything is in good shape. The motel does not offer any breakfast. This place is a good alternative to the pricier accommodation in Santa Barbara.

This motel was a surprise after a long drive. First impressions - the property looked like a throw back to the days when single story bungalow-like motels ruled small coastal towns. The reception area barely fits one guest but the night staff was pleasant and welcoming. He offered us free bottled water and Pepsi. Each room has a parking spot...

Most of us can't afford an accomodation in Santa Barbara, so why not Ventura? And... in Ventura I found this clean and nice place . The owner is good guy: he gave me the room some hours before the check-in time and offered me soda cans for free. The parking was in fronte of the room and it was big,...

For the price, this was a nice place to stay. Pros-was very clean, updated interior, comfortable bed, frig,microwave, and big TV w/premium channels, and friendly staff. Cons- door right next to first double bed as you walk in, bathroom really small (but updated and clean), and no COFFEE maker(huge deal), and no hair dryer.

Hard to find because motel sign was missing. However, Siri gave us directions. Check in was quick and easy recalling my reservation. Parked in front of our unit. Outstanding job renovating 50s era cabana. Modern amenities such as large flatscreen TV microwave and refrigerator. Crown molding, laminate floor, tiled bathroom with modern fixtures. Free WiFi nice chair with large desk....
