Nothing special and probably overrated A review of Ventura Beach Marriott
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.
