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... More

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... More

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.

I had driven past this hotel several times already but never stayed here. All together the hotel is OK. That is also about it. Service at the reception is good and friendly. Rooms are outdated and need to be refurbished. Same for the lobby and stairways etc. The plus is the nice view that you will have from your balcony... More

Fantastic balcony view, very comfy beds and a very good complimentary breakfast. 20min walk to harbor. Hotel could do with a lick of paint inside and some TLC but excellent staff, at front desk and in the breakfast room and a good night sleep with great view from the room.

We visited this hotel in August this year. This Holiday Inn is not at all what I expect from a Holiday Inn. The room was okay, beds are fine, the carpet was nasty, it had a musty smell in the room and the lights flickered if you did not keep a card in the slot. We had problems with the... More

Although the room, apart from the bathroom, is nice, the hotel itself is really outdated. From the check inn to the door of your room, everything looks like it's not serviced.

Stayed here during the Strawberry Festival. I'm a fan of HI and this property did not disappoint. Check-in was easy, they accommodated my request for a corner room on the 3rd floor with no problems.

The normal routine for us: me, wife, two kids - a weekend away. We chose Ventura since it had been many years and the memories had that rosy tinge. And the memories were right!
