Set on a palm tree-lined street, this 1926 hotel is just a half-block to downtown Ventura and 3 blocks to the beach. Rooms are decorated in an Italianate style, have private bathrooms, and free WiFi. Some have fireplaces, spa-tubs, bay window seats, or a view that looks over a leafy courtyard. There is a pleasant living room lobby with wooden floors, antique sofas, a real fireplace, and flower arrangements from the local farmers' market.

I am sorry to have to write this review. I got what I thought was an upgraded room for a get-away to Ventura. What no one told me was that there are only four rooms in the hotel with air conditioning. We were on the west side and it was during the recent heat wave. The room
