Crowne Plaza Hotel Ventura Beach (formerly Holiday Inn)

Property Type:  Resort - Beach


The Crowne Plaza Hotel Ventura Beach formerly operated as a Holiday Inn has undergone a renovation, making the time to visit and stay in Ventura, now!  The beds are supreme, views stunning and the City of Ventura and beaches are simply fun, friendly and ever so relaxing.


Views, views and views! Whether you look to the north or south, you'll see the ocean from most rooms of this hotel.  It's convenient location near the Amtrak station and downtown Ventura three blocks away make this a weekend or week day getaway you'll not regret, not forget and absolutely love. But only if you like beaches, great dining and options such as shopping, museums and movies.

We've reported on this hotel for several years and done so with a bit of trepidation, not wanting to see the rates go up as people rediscover this great coastal gem. Outside the hotel is the Ventura Pier where you can dine, shop and fish for free. Or just take a pier stroll and look at the photos and history of the pier and region in the displays.


Got kids? Take them down to the beach to the swing sets and playground. No here's a novel concept--giving tots a place to play right on the beach. Most beaches in California "get it" but there are still some who haven't quite figured out this element of tourism....or they don't care. Needless to say, this place is kid-friendly.


But for biz travelers or people like me who work and play all in one, the high speed complimentary Internet is mighty fine! I can post these stories and photos with ease while enjoying the breeze as I sit in an adjustable leather work chair at a work desk, with a big sliding glass door and small, step-out balcony a few feet from the desk. Such amenities are subject to change but on my visit, everything was absolutely top notch. The price, the quality and location all added up to my fantastic beach vacation!

Directions:  101 North Exit California Street. 101 South Exit Ventura Avenue. Located on the Beach.

Area Airport:    Oxnard (OXN) , Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) approx. 1.25 hours drive, Burbank approx. 50 minutes
