All travelers, budget on up, would have been appalled. When we checked in, we looked at the last available room. The door to the room and the door to the beach were open. A quick look satisfied us. I told the desk staff that someone who looked at the room must have used the toilet, she apologized and offered to...

My adult daughter and I stayed two nights in June while in town for her triathlon. We haven't had a trip together, alone, in years so we wanted somewhere right on the beach. Not many choices in Ventura so I was pleased to find Inn on the Beach as it appeared to be old, but perfect. We didn't care about...

This may be a good place for college students on a budget - although it is expensive and very musty and out dated. We were very disappointed and wished that it was cleaner and a little updated. We moved the next night.

the view is amazing. this is probably the more affordable place right on the beach as compared to the $300-$500 once spread across the beach. there is an electric fireplace, a comfortable bed, a jacuzi bath tub, working toilet, hd tv and again a direct view of the beach. what else can you ask for. the downside is the breakfast...

We had stopped by the hotel after a long day of driving. We had seen it before - it's right on the beach - but never had elected to stay there. The room was priced at approximately $150 with a third floor balcony, affording a wonderful view straight to the sand, the water, and the stars above. The hotel is...

Very nice stay at Inn at the Beach". Only negative was the bulldozer's moving of sand right behind our room, no one's fault, just unfortunate timing. Very comfortable, "at home" feeling. Service at front desk very friendly, and informative when asking about a potential "coastal" move.

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at the Inn on the Beach in Ventura, CA. We had lived in Ventura for many years and were familiar with the fact that the hotel is right on the sand, but I had never stayed there. What a great experience: from the front desk personell to the delicious coffee and huge...

My husband and I stayed there for my birthday over the weekend of February 11, 2012. I have to say that after reading through all of the reviews today, they must maintain 1/2 of the rooms in a reasonable fashion while leaving the other 1/2 in poor, run down condition. Either that or the reviewers who gave this place anything...

We arrived late afternoon and managed to be upgrated to a room on the first floor for the price of a ground floor room. The view from the room was stunning. We woke up the next morning with dolphins swimming along the coast. Breakfast was some HUGE Danish pastries, which each could have fed an entire family. The room was...
