Nice location
By shaunkhan
The location was excellent. Ventura beach is just in front of the hotel, and side view of Ocean from inside of the guest room. The bed was comfortable too. Watching sunset from the bench in front of [More] hotel was unforgettable memory. I will stay again in this hotel for the next time. [Less]
Friendly Staff
By mamarrazzi
Enjoyed a quick one day staycation with our family at this hotel. Received a room on a higher floor, as requested which allowed us to catch a beautiful sunset AND fireworks from the fairgrounds. The [More] staff was super friendly and very helpful. Looking forward to another stay! [Less]
Great guest service
The staff is so great. I could not ask for more. Even though I do not use all of the services each time, I appreciate having a pool, fitness center and laundry service available. [Less]

Excellent Customer Service
By Mike_E_Free
The customer service was Superb, First Class!!! The GM was so kind and considerate. He personally would seek me out to inquire how everything was going as well as tell me that if I needed anything [More] he would be more than happy to comply. I like that a lot!!! That's how business should be conducted. I highly recommend the hotel. It is classy. Great location and once again, excellent customer service. [Less]
Free Night Stay
By Mervink
Excellent property in a great location but parking is a hassle. Have had better breakfast items and food quality at other Holiday Inn Expresses. [Less]
Clean room, Beware of hot tub noise.
By Tae13
Clean room, comfortable bed, outside patio area to enjoy breakfast, my window faced the pool and hot tub and there were teenage girls out there until midnight... not especially noisy but their [More] chatter was clearly audible in my room. I'm not sure it was worth what I paid but it was close to where my meeting was the following day. REALLY CLOSE. [Less]
Great Value for Money
By mayehem
We stayed 2 nights here with 3 kids. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff were very responsive. There was a little bit of traffic noise from the freeway, but not enough to disturb [More] anybody's sleep. The location is great. We would definitely come back here. [Less]
Great Family hotel.
By Moni55
We've been staying at this hotel for the last 5 years and have always had a positive experience with the exception of a couple of issues on this stay. [Less]
