Relaxing weekend right on the beach

4.4 on June 26, 2016

Went home extremely relaxed after listening to the waves, and being right on the beach. Will be returning hopefully soon. Great views from 3rd floor. Great customer service.

We loved it


We love Inn on the Beach

4.0 on June 19, 2016

For 19 years, we've stayed at Inn on the Beach at least once each year. It's relaxing to sit on the balcony and watch the waves. The area has a good choice of restaurants within walking distance (we love Spasso across the street). This is a comfortable beach hotel and the rooms are quiet. The staff are friendly and always willing to help you with local attractions. The best views of the ocean are from the second and third floors.


Love it!

Have been staying here annually for 18 years. Relaxing getaway. Staff is always friendly and accommodating. The hotel does need some TLC and updating, but keep in mind it is right on the beach. Charming hotel. Plenty of great food options on the same street. Enjoy watching the waves with a glass of wine on the balcony. Fireplace in room is great for cool ocean evenings. Little breakfast room offers cereal, muffins, oatmeal, coffee and juice. Love this place!


Great location

We love the location of this hotel. It is a bit on the older side but the balcony and ocean view makes it worth every penny! Will be coming back soon!


Can't beat the ocean views!

3.6 on May 26, 2016

We absolutely loved staying at Inn on the Beach in Ventura in May to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. Having stayed there in the past, we knew about the perfect ocean views. The room was cozy and comfortable. The fireplace is an added bonus. We plan on coming back in the near future.


Weekend with My Granddaughter

3.4 on May 25, 2016

I have stayed here many times over the years and it is quite delightful. Right on the beach in Ventura is an ideal location. Staff is very nice and decor is antique bed and breakfast look. However, it now needs a little "freshening" up. Everything is still clean and neat but there are chips in the paint, dents, tattered wall paper and the screen door in our room was broken and laying on the patio. Each room has an electric fireplace which is a nice touch and beachside rooms have small balconies with table & chairs. With just a little paint and repair it could get back to its prior loveliness. Surprisingly good restaurant right on the same block adds to the ease of staying here. Once it's refurbished, I would definitely rate it a "5"


Great Getaway for Mother's Day

3.6 on May 11, 2016

I have stayed here several times. This time I had the opportunity to stay here and wake up on the beach for Mother's Day. I love how close you are to the water. All the rooms have a great view. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. It's walking distance to a lot of great restaurants. You don't even have to get in your car. I can see how some of the reviews complain about some things are run down. They did upgrade the bathrooms and are working on fixing things. That's fine if they don't come back. More chance for me to get a room. The hallways do like like they haven't been vacuumed in a long time, but our room was clean.


Horrible, Unclean, Unsafe

1.2 on April 26, 2016

Stayed one night, was registered for 3. Could not stand the grunge in the bathroom, the electrical outlets hanging loose from the wall, the cables hanging loose below the televisions, the sliding door that came off the first time we tried to open it, the doorjamb that was rotting and so loose the door rattled when people walked by, the large trash bag in the hallway, the absolutely horrible "breakfast", which was stale, crappy "food". DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!! Wish I could score it lower...


Need a little more tlc

3.6 on April 26, 2016

It was very homey at the inn... I liked that about it. But a couple things we're broken and the room needed a little more tlc than it has gotten...for the price we would expect it to be a lottle more kept up. The view was spectacular! Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again.
