I returned to Inn on the Beach in early October and like before I love it!! It IS old and there are some things that could do with some work and it almost looks run down BUT for me that just adds to its charm. The lovely staff more than make up for anything that might be lacking and to...

We stayed here one night over 10 years ago and found it very special. Its a bit old and quirky and has lots of plus points, balcony giving great view of beach, lovely breakfast on our balcony, comfy bed. We could open the window at night and listen to the waves splashing. We were very lucky to get a room...

This Inn is fantastic for so many reasons! First of all, it's beach front. You have incredible views of the Pacific Ocean and the Anacapa Islands if you get a room on the 2nd or 3rd floors. Secondly, you are walking distance to shops, restaurants, groceries stores... it's ideal! It's a small and cozy property, which means quiet and relaxing!...

I have been staying here for years and love it. I won't stay anywhere else. Where can you sit on balcony or in room and see the ocean? Go to sleep with sound of the waves and a fireplace. I was disappointed they took out jacuzzi tubs but the new showers are amazing. I live 15 min away so this...

DON'T STAY HERE. SHAME ON THE OWNERS FOR DECEIVING CUSTOMERS. If you do, make sure you sanitize EVERYTHING. You don't know what you'll bring home. I stayed in old hotels but CLEAN old hotels. This hotel is not only old, it's gross. The pictures on their website are deceiving, they depict an old but clean hotel, this couldn't be further...

Hotel is located right on the beach, the ocean view is perfect. But the hotel needs some work to be done everything is old and dirty. Also smells as dirty room. The breakfast is also poor, but the staff is nice. please take advantage of the ubicacion and invest some money to improve that place.

Believe it! This place is right on the beach. I read reviews but decided to check myself and glad I did. We stayed here a night and wanted to stay additional night but had to make way to Grand Canyon. You walk out the Hotel a few steps and your feet touches the sand. Room was cleaned and they have...

We visited in June of 2013, so things may have changed. We chose this place because we wanted to open the door to our room and hear the waves crashing. What a unique place this was! It was very retro and had an eclectic style. The people with guest services were very kind and helpful. The room did have a...

This place has been our "go to" place for many years. It is an older hotel ( as are most of the hotels in Ventura) and needs some tender lovin care but it has always been clean and cozy. We usually stay on the top floor as that will give you the best view. Be careful of the first floor...

It was right on the beach which was nice. However our room was not clean. Think tortilla chip parts on the floor, granola bar wrappers under the bed and used wipes as well. Fireplace had handprints all over it. Bathroom was marginally cleaner. Aesthetically, they needed a bedspread. Furniture was old but wouldn't have minded if the room were clean....
