Step out of the ordinary. Inn on the Beach is a botique hotel located right on the sand. Lodgings with views are numerous, very few are Ocean Front. Our rooms offer balcony or patio, gas fireplaces, flat screen lcd tv's, and refrigerators. A continental breakfast is provided each morning.

Always enjoy my stay at the INN ON THE BEACH. My room was clean and comfortable. The shower head needed to be tightened and shower drained very slowly but other than that it was WONDERFUL!!

Rooms not clean, could use paint and more detailed cleaning especially in bathroom. Doorknob broken and dirty. Did not even want to touch it. Missing tile around fireplace. Peeling wall paper. Bed very uncomfortable, seemed like it was an old spring type. Outside grounds unkept. Old crate full of slabs near door looked abandoned. Outside could use cleaning.

My family and I came back to visit Ventura during fair season and I knew this place well although I never stayed here. From booking with Starlie and our actual stay, everything went smoothly. They did their best to accommodate us and I plan on coming back again. Yes it is an older hotel and needs updating however between the views and the awesome staff you can't ask for more. A special thank you to Jay and you cleaning staff for taking such good care of us and making our trip back home to Ventura memorable. The Rodriguez Family.....

Loved the location -- within walking distance to restaurants. County fair going on when we were there & enjoyed watching the fireworks from our patio.

If you want to stay right next to the sand...it is a good value. A little behind in maintaining the building, glass in fireplace probably had not ever been cleaned, you could not lock the sliding glass door or screen (an aluminum stick was provided for the door) so felt a little uneasy leaving the door open at night but wanted to hear the waves and keep the room cool, generally felt a little dirty. However the bathroom was updated and very clean. Ventura is a great little beach town...still has that vintage feel. :)

Comfortable old-fahioned feel-good hotel. Service was great, staff was friendly and helpful. Easy walk to several food choices and mini-mart.

We love Inn on the Beach! It is an affordable way to enjoy a stay at the beach. It is clean and I felt comfortable bringing my five year old. You can't beat the direct access to the beach. We stayed for a week. Unfortunately this time we had problems with other people breaking their no smoking policy, but they were on it as soon as it was reported. Rooms do need updating but they are quaint and the bathroom in our room appeared to have been updated . Beds were comfortable. The restaurants that are all in an easy walk to, are all very good and offer a variety of choices in types of food.

We always stay at Inn on the Beach because it's within walking distance to restaurants. The fact that the Inn is literally on the beach is the most important reason we stay here.

We've stayed here before and love the location. You cannot beat the views. Having been here before we were not expecting an updated modern place. However it is time for the owners to stay making some improvements. Outlets that don't work, no plugs for the tubs so you can only use the shower, repairs to the wall paper in the form of white paint patches are some of the issues that are making this hotel more and more run down. If you are looking for proximity to the beach, you've got it. You'll just have to close your eyes to the appearance of some of the other things.
