Business In Oxnard

Great room
By Peteles911
Went for my anniversary 11/2016 and had a King mini suite.. Staff was excellent and made sure all we needed was taken care of. Walls are paper thin, but expected in an older hotel. West facing (Surf [More] and Sunset) is the way to go. Unfortunately, I had some bad clam chowder on C street (will not name because this is the first time ever sick and I love this place) and was stuck in the hotel room for 36 hours straight in pretty much agony.. Bed was too soft for me.. So.. great trip? BTW, be prepared for the trains which are required to sound at the crossing directly adjacent to the hotel. IT IS LOUD and occurs all day and well into the night. [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]
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]
Cute historical hotel
By BridgitS
I loved the hotel and the room was really cute. The bed is a little too firm for me. [Less]
