Check inn time was at 4pm, we checked in at 3:30pm and told us the room was not going to be available until 5 or 5:30 which was not convenient at all, we checked inn early to get the room on time, although the person in front of us got a room right away. Not happy with that
Staff is friendly

I love everything about ventura the good the bad an the ugly the reality of your surroundings is that theres alot of homelessness in ventura along with alot of amazing things in between so again clean hotel nice people , thats in good old funky ventura. , roll with enjoy it . Its the beach if you want high end take your bur to santabarbra or the south bay .
Great location yes its a older place , but its clean an great over the bridge access to the beach along with easy walk to down town , along with a nice friendly staff an a dinner on sight which allso has a friendly staff , the rooms are clean an have been some what updated , the pools clean an there seems to allways be older couples staying here too which my family likes , now if your looking for a 4 star /5 star hotel this is not your place . Dog friendly

Pool area could stay open longer at night. It closes at 10pm. Could be management wants quiet time for guest. Could maybe rent out bikes??
Convenient can walk to the pier or A Nice Walk On The beach. main street is just two blocks away to enjoy a dinner and or drinks. Dont have to worry about driving. Locals are friendly

Location and no Wi Fi. The Wi Fi availability alone will keep us from staying there again
We stayed her because my husband knew where it was.

Room saved for us was in the back near train and lots of noise. My husband has medical needs and it wasn't right for us. We had reserved a handicapped room.

Many transients walk through your facility and appear to just hang out. I'm glad my kids weren't with us. it appeared you are renting weekly or monthly to locals. the back area parking was a mess. It hadn't been attended to in awhile and we had to pass by when we walked to the beach.
The employees working at the front counter were very nice and efficient. You had a spa which we wanted but some of the jets did not work and it was not hot enough. a spa should be hot not luke warm

The motel looked a bit old fashioned on first sight, but the check-in was efficient and friendly, and the room spotlessly clean. Was a bit worried about the proximity of the Amtrak line, but in fact never heard a thing all night. Very easy walk across the tracks and a road bridge to the beach and pier, and in the opposite direction we walked just a couple of blocks to some good places to eat in Ventura.
