Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cl608 Wonderful staff and harbor reviews.
Almost cancelled this reservation based on the negative reviews I had read. I am so glad I did not cancel. This facility is old but I do not know of any new hotels in this area. The property was clean as well as our room. The ladies who checked us in Friday evening were very welcoming. All the staff were wonderful. Only issue I had which is a pet peeve of mine is finding a stray hair on the bed sheet which was probably from the maid. Our room with a balcony and harbor view was just what we needed for a weekend getaway. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PrincessPatti Overall great stay.
Clean room, comfy bed, staff very accommodating and friendly.
Only dislike was the odor from the recycled water used to irrigate the landscape, PHEW!
We will definitely come back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BonzBluz Just the best, except....
Disappointed the fruit was limited, esp since the area is so ripe with agriculture;
Also disappointed there is a charge for parking now?!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Golfer Extraordinaire Great Location
The hotel is well located in the Ventura Harbor. The restaurants near by are good. The overall experience was great. I have stayed at this hotel and I would plan to do so in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BIRRI Winning Staff!
I never met such an accommodating staff. They tried to help in every way from extra towels, to directions, or anything. The staff was very polite and know how to greet and take care of the guests.
Our room with a harbor view was great. One of my children was able to study on the balcony with relaxation as the view was beautiful.
For breakfast, I would have liked to have seen fresh fruit cut up in a large bowl.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jackioe27 Great location, best pillows!
The location by the harbor is awesome. Great walking around there. Good food nearby. Most comfortable pillows yet. Staff was super nice and helpful. One recommendation: there is no signage suggesting the guests save water. I hung my towel for reuse, but it was replaced every day. California is in a serious, serious drought. Holiday Inn ought to be informing their guests and practicing water conservation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sgf65 Great view of the harbor.
Great location. Just a short walk to the harbor village. Only a 5 minute drive to downtown Ventura.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill6846 Professional service and comfortable room
I seldom rate anything as a 10. But, the staff at this facility was excellent. Always friendly, professional and ready to help, no matter our needs. Overall, the hotel was about a 9.
Though the hotel is an older property and the outside is somewhat dated, our room was excellent. Being at the end of the building and on a corner, it was large and airy. The view of the harbor was great. My only complaint was that the surface area in the bathroom was limited.
The location is convenient to the freeway and both the midtown area and southern area of Ventura. I will stay here, again, in future trips.
