Picked this as a last minute stay. The reviews on the site we booked were in my opinion a little misleading. We arrived & were given our room. On entering we were overwelmed by an unidentified smell. The manager came as we were uncomfortable with staying in the room. He was very pleasant & showed us the room next door....

This motel is a typical older style independently owned California motel. I like this style when traveling on my Harley because it's one story and I can park right outside my door. This motel even had covered parking. The room was spacious and clean. There was even a small kitchenette in this room. The managers were very friendly. The one...

This motel is really a nostalgic throwback to the early motor courts, with car ports. It is kept up well and was very clean . We got the kitchenette room in order to have more room and we were glad for the large fridge as our ice chest was barely warm after traveling. We were easily able to refreeze ice...

This place was easy to find in downtown Ventura, a hop, skip and a jump to the Mission Buenaventura. The motel is in need of updates, but the beds and linens were very comfortable, the breakfast courtyard was cozy and the fireplace in the lobby warm and inviting on a cool morning. We parked on the street (free parking) as...

PRO: The room was clean. In fact it smelled a lot like Lysol when we first entered. Location right next to ice cream shop. Very close to large mall. Easy access to 101 and 126 freeways. Microwave oven and small refrigerator in room. Parking spot reserved right next to every room. CON: Bed was not all that comfortable, especially the...

In searching for a hotel in Ventura, CA for one night during Memorial weekend, Mission Bell came up with availability, 7.1 rating and a VERY HIGH PRICE...$277+ When we arrived we were shocked that it was a run down motel, with no amenities even ice! The room was clean but unacceptable for the high price... The shower sprayed over the...

It's cheap, but it's possible to stay! We finded at the Last minut and it was ok for us. We suggest to stay only one night not more. The people who attend wery kindly and the workers helped us for everythings. Good town to visit for your holidays.

I came here with my boyfriend because it was late and this was the only place we could find with vacancies in our price range. It was SO gross and everything was ugly. Just picture the most ghetto room you can imagine. The floor felt sticky, the lamp was just a lightbulb on a pole, the bed was hideous, the...

It’s not the cheapest place available. I stayed in a room with a king sized bed that included a separate kitchen. The room was clean. The kitchen had a Mr. Coffee Jr, a four burner stove with oven, sink, refrigerator and freezer, plus a few mugs -- but no utensils, plates, pots or pans. The room had a walk in...

No welcome on arrival. No Maps . Couple could barely understand English and our booking reference they had on a scrap of paper. Advertised as with Kitchenette, but no crockery or pots and pans. When I complained we were given 2 dinner plates, 2 bowls, 2 frying pans and a saucepan, and later 2 mugs. No cutlery and no kettle.
