The hotel was beautiful and the staff was great. There was some construction but it did not cause much disruption to our stay. I will definitely stay here again.

Only one suggestion, need more staff to work front seat on weekend check-ins and check-out, particularly when checkout via TV isn’t working

gone to the dogs

This hotel is pet friendly. You can smell dogs as soon as you get upstairs. Parking is $12 per day. Never had a high priced hotel charge for parking ! Won't be back !!

A day to remember

Pros: Everything, mostly siting on balcony watching the ocean, very relaxing.
Cons: Parking for hotel guest a bit expensive at $12 a day.
Location: Ventura Pier short walk away. They have a taco restaurant there on the Pier that have great tacos at a very reasonable price. Benches along walkway
Many years ago my husband and I spent our anniversaries and took our kids on vacation at this hotel (different Hotel chain then). So it was with fond memories that I returned here. I was not disappointed. The rooms have balconies with a view of the ocean. They are clean and comfortable. Short walk to Pier or to a Park where you can watch the suffers. The playground equipment that my kids used was still on the beach. Hotel staff was excellent. There is a bonfire out on the patio with live entertainment. The entertainment was very enjoyable. Only thing I missed was that they no longer give you a coupon for a free drink at check in. A little thing perhaps but don't forget that it is sometimes the little things that keep people coming back. Parking is a bit to expensive but that seems to be the way of most Hotels in Beach Cities.

very comfortable room and good housekeeping staff

Pros: Location
Cons: A gift shop
Location: we came up for the fair for the first time. Would love to see a shuttle provided to get there. Very long walk especially for seniors
friendly reception at front desk and even though we had to sette for a pet-friendly floor to get the view we asked for it was no problem. Never heard a barking dog and there was no pet odor!

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Just about everything.
Location: The beach was very nice. And local restaurants were great.
Worst place I've ever stayed. Room was filthy dirty, which told me don't order room service. bathroom fixtures that fell right out of the wall. Other people's hair everywhere. The only good thing about this hotel, proximity to the beach. The only positive thing I got out of this trip was I saw a lot of other hotels close to the beach. I will not return to the Crowne Plaza Hotel Ventura California.
