Great location, noisy rooms!
By Rassadi75
My room was near the elevators, and it was very noisy. Location is great with easy access to the beach. Limited parking spaces, despite the 12 dollar/night charge! [Less]
Ocean views and excellent customer service - 2 thumbs up
By Skole
Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach provides excellent customer service from genuinely caring staff. The location with view of the Pacific Ocean can't be beat. I appreciate the high class toiletries, with the [More] essential oils sleep aid kit. Spraying the air and pillow case really did help my sleep. Loved it. The only negative for some, might be the close proximity of the railroad tracks, but the soothing roar of the ocean cancels out the clickity clack of the train. I'd definitely go back. [Less]

Godd place to stay right on the beach, good friendly service [Less]
All About Location
By LA Local
Location of the hotel is amazing, we came by train and the hotel is literally right next to the station. It is also less than 2 blocks from the beach, and one block to all of the main wine tasting [More] rooms off State St. This is obviously why the price of the rooms is so high. Only downside is that the trains continue to run all night through town, every few hours and blast their horns. So as long as you don't mind potentially being awoken every few hours by a train, it's hard to beat when all your really need it a place to crash. [Less]
Great location
By akl;djfakjf
Always a pleasure to stay here. The rooms tend to be a little small but the locations is excellent....steps from the pier and on the main drag of State St. We were traveling with our mutt but they [More] are always accommodating here. [Less]
Comfortable bed, great toiletries, great location
By mnstrmo
My husband and I have always had a very enjoyable stay at the hotel. We really liked the little patio area. The hotel is really going to shine once construction is done on the Children's Museum but [More] this is only a problem during the week day. [Less]
As expected from Holiday Inn
By marcmoose
Very pricey and you must pay for parking, but the joint looks nice inside. First floor rooms along the street are subject to pedestrian noise. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay. [Less]
Great Location, Comfortable Bed, Great Service
By SusieQue_AZ
I stay here every time I am in Santa Barbara. The location is great, rooms are clean , beds are comfy and staff is great. Hard to beat! [Less]
Hotel stay = very nice. Parking - not so much
By Jubilee5
The rooms were quite costly but for California, I guess it was ok. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. The parking was horrendous with no warning on the website that valet parking was almost a must. [Less]
