I'd like to extend my special thanks to the entire staff at Best Western Plus in lovely Ventura, California. Our welcome was effortless, and we were situated in our room in no time. As a former contractor, I was very impressed by the design and layout of the room. Keeping aside the nice amenities like micro/fridge, the room was very well-appointed with new mattresses and box springs, beautiful framed photos, a separate vanity alcove -- and more. The rooms look and feel new, which is great.
The finish-work (tile,grout,paint/paper,caulk) in the bathroom was close to flawless, with high-quality fixtures, and a nice shower with hefty pressure.
The staff here are extremely hardworking, detail-oriented -- and 100% geared towards pleasing their guests. From the front desk, to housekeeping & maintenance -- I can't thank the good folks at the Best Western Plus enough. The hotel is also perfectly situated in relation to downtown, as well as the Ventura Pier, promenade and beaches!
Nearby food options abound, and there are several great spots located within a 3-5 minute walk. Fresh Mexican, a phenomenal local fish spot which serves everything from Ceviche (awesome), to a wide assortment of seafood delights. And, of course, the proximity to HWY 101, which is extremely convenient, especially if travelling to Ojai, Lake Casitas -- and throughout greater Los Padres National Forest (HWY 33)
I am now planning a return trip to Ventura from the Best Western Chateau in Big Bear Lake. I definitely didn't need to think twice about returning here - VENTURA - for my birthday, and the Fourth of July! We're excited to see the fireworks, meet old friends -- and watch multicolored sunsets from the hotel balcony.
That's my super-favorable review for the Best Western Plus in lovely Ventura, CA.
If you're not a Best Western Rewards member, you may wish to sign up when you check-in. You'll need to call the 800 number for the more arcane details on points and rebates, but it's worth it. I just got a free night, though spent quite a bit to earn it. In all, it's worth it.
Oh, and Do Not miss their fresh morning breakfast, served in the dining room adjacent to the welcome desk.
Thank you Again, and Safe Travels to All :) less
