I give it 3 thumbs up because of the price and location. There are ample places to eat nearby (Seaward Fish and Chips is awesome). The beach is a short walk away. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. But here is what you need to know (I had room 108): there are no glasses or cups, no... More

The only thing this hotel has going for it is that it is close to the beach and there's a few nice places to eat and drink near by. The hotel is tired and worn to the extreme. If you think you are going to check-in here and have a nice relaxing and comfortable stay then forget it. You can... More

Toilet not bolted to floor, shower had mold and water damage, bathroom door was cracked up the center & broken, you had to keep pulling hard to open. Bed was uncomfortable,... More

The only thing good about this hotel is it's location - a block away from Ventura beach, very close to the fairgrounds, and right down the street from Duke's Grill (wonderful food and atmosphere). Our room had two queen beds that were comfortable enough but the pillows were very lumpy and one of the bedspreads had a rather large burn... More

Fantastic location as it is steps from the beach. Affordable Suite with Jacuzzi tub. Small room but clean and quiet. Free continental breakfast. Very nice staff. "Dukes" eatery is located down the street as well as a small Fish & Chips place. A cool pub next door as well. I will definately stay here again.

the inn is has could be great if a little more detail was put into it and some upgrades, the staff is very nice, but my room needed a good cleaning, not the floors or beds but the high surfaces like the tops of the lights and arround the vent in the bath, spiderwebs, stuff like that.

We chose this motel for 2 reasons: they allowed pets (even large ones) and the location. Our dog was having surgery so we needed a place to stay a few nights. The location is probably the only positive thing about the place. It is within easy walking distance to the beach and several places to eat. However, the room itself... More

The location is easily within walking distance from the beach. It's an older property, but clean and comfortable room. The staff is excellent, willing to help in finding anything in the area you need. Wi Fi was good and strong! Would definitely stay here again!

Travelling up Highway One, this was the first night we had to find our own accommodation. As someone mentioned the motel has permanent residents. They weren't very friendly. The room was basic but comfortable. The staff where friendly. We got there late so the only restaurant that was open was the fish and chip shop down the road which was... More

We were traveling through California on our way to Oregon and only had one night we needed in Ventura. It was Labor day weekend and most hotels wanted a two night minimum. I called the Shores Inn and was delighted that they were willing to do one night. I reserved one room with two beds. The hotel is a two... More
