My wife's mother passed away and due to Ventura having a Johnny Cash festival hotel space was very limited. I ran across the website for Shores Inn and saw some initially favorable reviews so out of pure necessity we booked on-line and prepaid three nights for a king bed room. When we arrived the room had a queen bed in...

I enjoyed staying there , great location, price was ok. The linens had a funny smell not sure they get changed everyday. A couple of blocks to the beach. Employees (Trevor I believe was his name) very friendly, and ready to help, made me feel at home.

I have never written a bad review before but this one is bad. We were recommended this motel by their sister motel in the hills. We checked in and then 20 minutes later checked out and got our money back. The clientelle that were already staying there were yelling and screaming at each other - using foul and abusive language....

The fan in the room was so loud and mad me feel I am sleeping by a operating plane! I couldn't sleep at all, the noise, the smell invests. Horrible horrible horrible...

This Inn/Suites is short of even being that. Yes, I looked by the beach, but the area is just run down. Just take a look at my pic's. For the price you pay, you are better off staying at the Holliday Inn or even better, take the 30 - 40 min drive and enjoy Santa Barabra. Much cleaner and the...

Employees of this establishment are horrible at best. The girl that worked on Sat 6/2, must be employed here, because she inn't employable at good establishments. Her attutide is just horrible. I guess she fits in with the rest of the place. House keeping is non-existant. Room was very dirty and un kept. The room had one blind on half...

We were a bit leary after reading some of the bad reviews but with it being a holiday weekend and everything booked we took a chance. It was just as expected, a motel. Nothing fancy but much better than we expected and being able to make our own waffles was pretty fun and neat too. Its very close to the...

We have been coming to Ventura and have stayed here many times when we are in town. This place is on the up and up from what we have seen, we are very pleased with the direction it has taken. They have to our surprise added nice outside patios at each downstairs room! We loved that, it made us be...

My friends go there on a regular basis. It is old but clean. Staff is good. we know them all by name and they remember us. The Front desk has a frequent turnover but they try to accommodate as much as possible. The wireless is not great but the staff go above and beyond to get it hooked in. We...
