We had a very pleasant stay at the hotel. Our room overlooked the marina and we had a great view of the sunset. I think all of the rooms had views of the marina. The breakfast had good selections and tasty foods. There could be more seating available for the breakfast crowd. We will be gald to come back to...

Pros: Nice big room with a balcony facing the harbor. Not sure why the igh website lists some rooms as harbor view. Perhaps because some rooms must look over the adjacent parking lot to see the harbor? Guests can use the pool, hot tub and exercise center at the Four Points by Sheraton across a walking bridge. Breakfast was fine....

We stayed here the night before taking the boat to Santa Cruz Island. I had mixed feelings about the hotel. It is a newish appearing facility right on the harbor so it is extremely convenient if you are taking an excursion to the Channel Islands. The rooms were large and clean with a balcony and beautiful view of the harbor....

This is a very small Hotel but is well taking care off, the location is great with lots of parking which by the way is $10 a day to use it, the rooms are big with a microwave, a little fridge, coffee maker. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is very spacious and have a whirlpool bathtub. On the breakfast...

We frequently take day trips to Ventura Harbor and decided to make an overnight adventure of our last trip. Our room was clean, comfortable and had a GREAT view of the harbor. Marie, at the registration desk went above and beyond all expectations to make sure our stay was what we hoped for. She, is perhaps, one of the BEST...

The location and view (if you have it) are beautiful overlooking the harbour of Venture. For the rest, this is any Holliday Inn hotel. Staff is friendly and rooms are spacious and have TV, microwave, coffee maker and fridge. No mini-bar. Parts of the hotel are a bit 'old' and don't have a fresh look & feel. The breakfast could...

In order to be close to the marina for an early morning boat trip to the Channel Islands, I stayed the night before at the Holiday Inn located at the marina. Great choice. Very convenient location for my needs. Large, comfortable room. A little dated but overall in good shape. Nice view over the marina from my room. Very nice...

The Staff and Manager (Rosemary, Sylvia, and Stephanie) at the Holiday Inn Express were amazing. They all seem to go above and beyond to accommodate me and my employees. We stayed here on and off for 4 months and at times were there for 2 weeks straight. They made it seem like a second family.

The rooms face a harbor where you can watch the sun set, and there is a free breakfast to help the budget if you prefer it to trying one of Ventura's wonderful breakfast places. The best part of staying at this hotel are the beds. The mattresses are almost a foot thick, the sheets and pillow cases the softest we'd...

We did an early check-in however we wanted a harbor view, so we waiting and boy the wait ( 1hr) was so worth it. The view was amazing and the weather was perfect. The front lobby staff was exceptional with customer service and politeness. I would defiantly come back here.
