Having read some of the negative reviews on this site, I was leery about staying here. My fears were unwarranted. Concerns about privacy in the bathroom are unwarranted unless you have a very deep seated fear of peeping toms looking through pinhole cracks in slotted windows. Someone would have to be very bold to stand in a public place and...

The view of the harbor is incredible from the third floor balcony. You are literally 20 feet away and 20 feet above it. Sunset couldn't have been more spectacular. Here is the butt; in a place with so much potential, you would hope they would put in some elegance to compliment their location. Front door view of active farmland and...

This HIE is in a nice location on the Ventura Harbor marina, connected to a Sheraton 4 points by a walking bridge overpass. The pool and the restaurant were both over at the Sheraton, so if you want easier convenience to those, stay there, otherwise, HIE patrons can walk across and use them. The HIE did have a breakfast bar...

I was close to cancelling this reservation based on the negative reviews I had read but I am so glad I kept it. The staff at this hotel were wonderfully and went out of their way to ensure my stay was pleasant including changing my room upon check-in when I found out that the ground floor room did not have...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Ventura Harbor for 2 weeks while my husband did some work at a local hospital. We had requested a harbor view room with a balcony. The first night it wasn't available but the following night we had the room we requested. The property is older. Clean room. Clean bathroom. The first room was...

We stayed two nights and had a great time. Staff was amazing. We had two rooms and we all said we would come back. Right on the harbor. Really great for a weekend getaway. Even walked over to the Four Points for drinks one night. Very easy and a lot of fun.

We were quite pleased with our decision to book here. Seems others had a different take, but our stay was very pleasant. Many of our plans centered on the Channel Islands National Park, and this hotel is right by the pier that provides access to the Park. There are many restaurants in the Harbor Village, as well as the National...

My friend and I went to the Holiday Inn’s website and booked a room with a Harbor View for 3 nights. When we arrived, we were told that we had a room with a view of…a brick wall instead. We paid $10/night extra for the room with a view, but all we were told was “we’re sold out…there’s nothing we...

Ok - went to this hotel as we were going on a "Scarlet Bell" wedding cruise of which I will review next. This hotel is fairly nicely located at the marina. The view off our balcony was nice. The dead fish smell was a little overwhelming when we arrived. The lobby was small and outdated as was the entire hotel....
