Do NOT be seduced by the location! It is terribly run down and disgustingly filthy. RUN AWAY! Broken furniture. Bed sheets dirty and had hair, so I tried the next bed but could not quite sleep after that - yucky cooties! I have short red hair ... see the photo of the hair in my bath/shower! And, seriously! this is...

3 friends travelling up the coast and we found Shores Inn and Suites ideally located in Ventura. The price was reasonable, and so I suppose we should have checked the rooms first. Charlie and I had a room with a fabulous power shower, but the whole place reeked of smoke. The sheets were cleanish!! Beth's room was ok, not too...

This one was hard to swallow, I had fond memories staying here during summer vacations as a youth so when we pulled into town this is the first place I stopped. Unfortunety the past 20+ years have not been kind to this place or the whole area for that matter. We arrived early afternoon obviously before the pimps and drug...

After reading the reviews on tripadvisor we decided to try this motel. It's in a interesting beachy area of Ventura, bike rental across street, good and funky restaurants, rode bikes to downtown and to the fairgrounds. Got back to motel for 3pm check in, nothing earlier, only to be put in a smoking room. Changed rooms to non smoking and...

Nice weather and just a quick walk to the beach with a lot of nice local restaurants on the way there. Will be...

Last night there was a parade of unsavory characters shuttling from room to room and the strong smell of dope smoke. Could not get out fast enough. when I told the desk person on checkout that the sheets were worn out, he shrugged. If you like druggies and prostitutes, this is that place to be on a Friday night!

My wife and I spent 8 nights here from nov 8 to 16th. The staff were rude and generally unhelpful. The place was overrun with drug users, and homeless at low rates. Cigarette burns in the comforters, holes in the wall, smell of urine are just a few of the pleasant ammenities which you will find.
