Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Sirena Hotel and Marina Oxnard
Your hotel sucks
We paid the extra money and got the "suite" But when we first got there, the room door was jammed where we could barely open it, there were puck stains on the floor, the floor was wet like they tried to get the stains out, the blankets and sheets were wet, the curtains were falling out of the ceiling, the light and air conditioning did not work, big chips in the bathroom sink, the bath tub had tape all over it and was disgusting, the tv remote did not work, could not watch movies, it was so disgusting that we ordered more sheets to lay on the couch for us to even sit on them, and ordered more blankets, to lay on the floor so we could walk around barefoot. We will NOT go back and if it is possible we would like a refund.

Stayed there one night, room was not cleaned: dated paper trash in room from previous 2 week inhabitor, and hair not mine on counter. Had to pay a pet deposit; stated this was not to be refunded at the end of stay, I would rather they stated he would be charged as another occupant. And the battery died on my door, took 30 minutes: missed an important appointment.
Way above what i expected
The staff were all very friendly, nice, and professional. The room was clean and comfortable, the harbor view fantastic. The food was unsurpassed, room service prompt. The surrounding area was like paradise, beautiful flowers, plants, and trees. I would recommend this lovely hotel to anyone. I look forward to going back again.
It used to be a nice place, but that was 10 years ago. The first room they gave me had obviously had the door bashed in. They hadn't even bothered to paint over the stucco where they fixed the hole. The locks were broken, and there were pry marks all around the door. I asked for another room, and was given one with a bathtub full of ants. The entire property is dirty and run down. It's the kind of place where you don't want to touch anything.
Bad, bad and worse...
I had stayed at Casa Sirena a number of years ago & now work for a tour booking company so I wanted to go back to check it out. I'm glad I did...my clients would have been furious. I had to ask to be moved to another room after the initial one had a non-working fan and furniture that was worn out & peeling. The rooms are old and dilapidated, curtains have holes, carpet is barely more than floor-covering. My room overlooked the harbor and the balcony railing was peeling and had large areas of decay that looked like termite damage. The closet doors didn't line up , so they wouldn't close properly and the door looked like it had been forced open at some point. The Hallways floors were worn and torn & the ice machine on our floor was broken.
Great inexpensive stay.
May 2003, Great place to stay! Weekly rate was terrific. Clean accomodation and good harbor view. Close to Oxnard and Ventura beaches. Easy freeway access and easy drive to Ventrua, Santa Barbara, and a little farther LA.
Clean comfortable accommodation
We stayed whilst on a coach trip. The room was clean and adequate. The view over the harbour was great.The room was very hot when we arrived and there was no airconditioning to cool it off. We had to wait for the sun to go down before the room could be cooled properly even though there was an overhead fan.
Serene at Sirena
The room was large and clean, and the water channel view was a treat. Lots of boats going by in the evening. More water view and a good dinner at the Lobster Trap. Going again.
I couldn't believe how great this place was! They have tremendous service. Ask for Ajay. Great view of the harbor. I felt like I was in the Mndaly Bay Hotel. The good thing is that its cheap.
What a nightmare!
Where to begin . . . Hallways were filthy, looked like someone's pet had gotten a little too excited. Colleague found a condom wrapper behind the nightstand. I had a suite that the only bed was a murphy bed. The doors to my room could have been kicked in with little effort. Other colleagues had ants in their rooms. Restaurant supposed to have great seafood, but the lobster bisque tasted suspiciously like Campbells Tomato Soup with lobster sauce (and very little of that!). Numerous instances of dirty dishes. Map of property showed a spa just outside the building, but had been made into a flower bed . . . probably a good thing. Could be a very nice resort, but definately needs work in the cleaning department.

Today is the day of the wedding of Larry Wayne Darden and Patricia Lynn Bergstrom. I'm so happy for these two. I have only met Patti yesterday for the first time at the rehearsal, but find our outgoing and easy to get to know. She and Larry really love each other.
Our morning was easy. It's a bit chilly for California. The temperature is 40 degrees this AM. We watched the Rose Parade on TV...the first time in years. The scenes close ...

We had a lovely time with Charles and Ruth in their lovely home. We enjoyed chatting to them and swaping stories and they completely tired ous out when they took us on the grand tour of Ventura. We were amazed how fit they both are. We also sampled their son's healthy ...

It was at this point that it really sunk it that the trip is truly beginning and that our dream is actually being realised and it really is everything we hoped and more. We'd originally pencilled in our stop for the ...
