Positive Reviews

Handy roadside location

Guests liked the convenience of this motel's location beside the Ventura Freeway. It enabled easy access to beaches and attractions like Ventura County Fairgrounds and Ventura Pier. There were also three shopping malls within five minutes' drive. Another plus was the proximity of gas stations and eateries.

Clean, comfy and competitively-priced

Some critics said the rooms were rather small, but many reviewers found them more than adequately clean, secure and comfortable for a shorter stay. Guests were upbeat about the updated rooms with colorful decor and hard floors. The ample free parking and pet-friendly policy were a bonus as was the pleasant outdoor pool with hot-tub. Reviewers said rates were usually competitive for the area.

Friendly staff

Visitors largely praised the customer service, often describing personnel as efficient, friendly and helpful. However, some guests reported occasional mix-ups with their reservations on arrival.

Negative Reviews

Unpopular Wi-Fi charges

Reviewers were disappointed to face additional charges for Wi-Fi access, often expressing surprise that it wasn't provided free of charge. It was occasionally reported that the network offered slow speeds and patchy coverage.

Maintenance and cleanliness complaints

According to some critics, there was work to do to improve cleanliness standards. It was claimed some bathrooms were unsatisfactorily cleaned or that certain rooms featured build-ups of hair and dust, unwashed floors and trash left behind by previous occupants. Occasional maintenance issues were also reported such as an unreliable hot water supply or slow-draining water.

Irritating noises and smells

Musty smells and lingering smoke odors were encountered in some rooms. Meanwhile, noises from adjacent rooms were sometimes audible as was occasional traffic noise from the freeway, according to light sleepers.
