    Historical Traveler Reviews Ventura Beach Marriott

    A fine, contemporary business hotel.

    from

    We stayed at this hotel recently for one night and it served its purpose. This is a big, contemporary business and meeting oriented place. It also caters to large groups and is very pet friendly. There was a dog show in town when we were there are we would swear that every room we passed in the long hallway had a barking dog in it. This doesn't look like the kind of hotel that would welcome pets, but our waiter at dinner told us that if we brought our dog and wanted to eat with him, they would set up a table on the patio and serve us outside (dogs are allowed everywhere except in the restaurant).

    The hotel appears to have been recently renovated and looks new inside and out, although the style is more airport than hotel. We couldn't quite put our finger on it, but we didn't feel overly comfortable here. The room was spacious and everything in it was new, but it felt very sterile. Sound insulation from the hallway and the room above was very poor, but we weren't disturbed during the night. High-speed wired internet is provided in the rooms free of charge, but bring your own long cable. A newspaper was delivered outside our door in the morning.

    Every staff member we met was extremely polite and helpful. Even the maintenance man said "good evening" when we passed him in the hallway. In that regard, this place couldn't be better. The restaurant has an interesting "Mexican fusion" menu that may not be to everyone's liking, but we enjoyed it and found the prices reasonable. The breakfast menu was very good and there was also a lavish buffet offered.

    The hotel is located in a nice area, although there really isn't much to do in the area. It is close to the freeway for easy access, but far enough away that noise isn't an issue. There is a park and beach within walking distance. This is probably the nicest large chain hotel in the area if you are there on business or with a group. Otherwise, skip this town and go up the coast to a more scenic town.

    Comfortable Hotel

    from

    A really nice comfortable hotel, located within walking distance to the beach. Service was good and restaurant food was very good. A quiet hotel, but driving distance to that part of the californian coast.

    Nothing special and probably overrated

    from

    OK, but would knock off 1 star rating from whatever guide you use. High speed internet was overpriced, much like the hotel.

    The couple hundred or so yards from the state beach is actually to the propertyline/parking lot, the beach is actually 3 blocks (still walking distance but site is misleading). The beach is rocky and Ventura is not that scenic. I'd recommend going up the coast farther.

    Large groups stayed here while we were there including several slumber parties on Saturday night, so was not very restful. A school tour busful of teenagers was there our last night and was very noisy in the courtyard well after midnight. When talked to frontdesk, response was oh, the will leaving...

    Staff was responsive to other requests and rooms were clean. Room service trays stayed in the hallway most of the day.

    Very Nice Stay

    from

    When my wife and I drove up to the hotel I was scared because it did not look the quality of the 100's of Marriotts I have stayed at on business. But when we walked in we were very surprised. The entire inside of the hotel has been renovated and it was beautiful.

    The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was always very friendly and helpfull. They always greeted you when you walked by.

    It is a short block and a half from the beach. There are neat little eating places at the end of Seaward that I recommend.

    Nice, clean, large room

    from

    NICE place, great service, good sized room,.We only stayed overnight, but this was a clean, nice, hotel. Worth the $109 we spent for a Sat.

    night stay.

    Wonderful rooms

    from

    We ventured to Ventura on a quick overnight vacation. The interior of the hotel has a bright colorful lobby. When we were there they had a mountain of strawberries with a chocolate fountain for the guests. The patio area has a waterfall then a seperate gated pool area. The pool and spa are pleasant with plenty of deck chairs and big fluffy towels.

    I kind of wish they had incorporated the waterfall area with the pool to make it a little more attractive, but since the pool is unattended I can see why they didn't. The rooms were very spacious with desks perfect for a business traveller. Coffee, tea, Nuetrogena shampoo, conditioner, and lotion were provided in the room. Nicely decorated.

    This hotel was listed as waterfront, it really isn't. Actually it is next to the freeway but we had zero noise. It is very close to the beach, about a block, but don't expect to see it from your room. The views are parking lot or pool. The hotel was located within a few minutes drive from the downtown area, the Channel Islands Visitor Center and of course the beach. We really did have a great stay here.

    It was super comfortable and all of our requests were granted.

    Will Come Back!!

    from

    Recently upgraded and it shows! Great Lobby w/ large sitting area w/ fountain under the stairwell. Modern "Cafe Pacifica" restaurant is very colorful. Had breakfast and a dinner, both good and reasonably priced (great steak for about $20). Outdoor in the inner courtyard the waterfall motif and separate pool & spa were very enjoyable. The room was large w/ a business center area and the king bed was very comfy.

    Location is good, about a block from the beach, on the south side of BuenaVentura State Park just south of the wood Pier and downtown (a lot of antique shops), a long walk or a very short drive. It is 2 exits north of the touristy Ventura Harbor w/ shops and restaurants.

    Overtsuffed-Overpriced

    from

    Stay at a Bed and Breakfast! This big place with its "new" renovation is so out of place in charming Ventura. They treat you like a number (one with a dolar sign in front of it) and add-on high-priced charges for everything. I usually stay at a B&B in Ventura but they were full so I tried this place. Save your time and your money.

    Great Service

    from

    The Service was just great from the minute I made my reservation with Danny he was very polite and friendly. Then when we I arrive we were welcomed by a very friendly manager (Marco Romero Director of Operations)who assisted us with luggage.. there was a very long line at the front desk so he took us and check us in at the conierge desk....WOW.... over all we had a great stay we had minor problem during our stay with the shower but the manager again Mr. Romero took care of in a flash. I will recomend this hotel to all my family and friends specially with that kind of attention from management. Thank you Marriott.....

    Thank you

    July in Ventura

    from

    A very enjoyable stay with polite and amenable staff. Close driving distance to great resturants and shops. A short, pleasant walk to the beach which is not as crowded as Holiday Inn's access. Bike and boogie board rentals at San Buenaventura State Park. Presently housing a small number of activated Army and Marine reservists. Very polite and respectful neighbors. Recommended!!

    Took a trip (actually twice) up to Santa Barbara to see that downtown area and enjoyed what we refer to as the appetizer tour. We check out different restaurants and order one or two things and share. We got pizza Margharita (Blossom's favorite), I chose German - Brats, soft pretzels etc, the boys chose tacos.

    ... No, we did what any cowardly city folk would do and walked quickly away in the opposite direction, vaguely horrified by killing anything bigger than a mosquito. Ventura seemed to be all about the animals. There was a lot of dogs here and we were so lucky to see masses of wild dolphins swimming past the beach or playing in the ocean by our campsight. Not sure what the obsession with dolphins is really, but I fully endorse it, they rock. Then on our last day here we came across what ...

    ... the insides of many of properties are extraordinary if that floats your boat...I travel on a different vessel. To each his/her own...give me the Hoover Dam anytime.

    I took off down I-15 to head for the LA-area sprawl-o-plex; until you reach San Bernardino it's a pretty boring drive over the desert and a few mountains...but I still preferred that to the traffic and sprawl I encountered once I got into those LA exurbs ...

    ... went out for lunch in downtown Ventura. The area was full of people and there were interesting little shops everywhere. It’s nice to see these old downtowns when they are doing so well. On our road trips we have seen way too many that were sounding their death knells. After lunch they took us on a bit of a tour. We saw where they were camped and more of the Ventura area. On the way back to the boat they stopped at a grocery store and we ...

    We woke up to a beautiful sunny morning, about 60 degrees. Sorry to tell all you guys stuck in the snow, but we went to the beach today. We drove along Ocean Blvd, first to the Santa Monica Pier area, then to Venice Beach. While we were around the Santa Monica Pier area, we walked
