Nicer motel 6
I wasn’t expecting a motel.. not very appealing from outside but the rooms were very clean and up dated... the only thing that really sucks here is the parking is horrible! No parking in front and no parking in back very little... but overall did the job.. clean bed clean bathroom .. peacefull

Not for us :(
Our room was incredibly small. We could hardly move around in it! No table or chairs. I hate having to watch tv from the bed. The young man on duty was helpful though and was able to find us one chair. I sat outside the room that evening on that borrowed chair for an hour or so just to get out of the cubicle of a room we had! All I had was a view of the parking lot, some run down storage areas and trash cans, and a sketchy apartment building behind. There are no restaurants, coffee places, or anything of interest around the motel, so we were kind of stuck. We'll never stay there again.

This is a small motel. The other guest that was there was very quite. The beds was comfy and plenty of room to move around the room. The parking in the back was small but we always had a place to park. I would definitely stay here again.

A mixed bag from awesome to WTH.
Crystal Lodge was different. It ranged from the best features we have ever experienced to the worst. We got there at 10 PM and were hesitant at first. The outside has a'50s beach rundown appearance. But we were tired so decided to go for it. We checked in through a security window, but it was quick, informal and pleasant. Skeptical, we went to the room and it was amazing. Big, clean with super modern appliances and the best tiled shower we have ever seen in a hotel. The bed was at the top end of comfortable. No street noise, but a little noise from other rooms. Interesting, there was a 2 foot hanger bar with 2 hangers. That was the closet. There were some dishes under the sink in a bucket--1 fork, 2 knives, 2 spoons and no plastic utensils. The sponge provided was gross so we got our own. While the shower was fantastic the soap provided was a 1 inch by 2 inch bar that didn't seem to lather. We bought our own. Price was good, location was great near the harbor. Checkout was smooth and informal. Would we stay here again? Yes, the pluses way outweighed the quirky minuses, but we will know next time to bring a few things that are lacking in the room.

Did not service room. Told me I left DND sign on door. Not true. Then when I went to ask for replacement towels, manager accused me of having a third person in room. Also not true. I insisted he come inspect the room immediately and he refused. He gave me two towels and said he would bring two washcloths. They never showed up. Never again will I stay there. I was in town for a trade show. Had one helper with me. Not impressed! Manager is a Jerk and a coward

Don't judge a book by the cover.
My wife and I stayed one night at the Crystal Lodge in Ventura. We called ahead and were given an early check-in after a 4hr drive. We only had 30 minutes to unpack and change clothes and continue driving to a graduation ceremony an hour away in Santa Barbara. We took time to chat with the owner and he gave us an extensive background about this family and the hotel they owned and operated. We have had family businesses too over the years. All I can say is they live up to excellence in guest services, cleanliness and more at a very affordable price. They are renovating the inside of the hotel...rooms, water and electrical systems, beds, etc. It's not all 100% yet, but much of it is done. Our room was on par with a Marriott or Westin. The outside cosmetics are last to come. It's a building from the 1950's but fully functional. Two downsides: parking is limited and there is no elevator. We had to haul luggage up and down 10-12 outside stairs, which wasn't easy for 2 retired seniors. Overall, this is not the Ritz Carlton, but we have travelled world-wide and experienced 5 star hotels and cruise lines. I can honestly say that the personal face-to-face service at Crystal is nothing less than 5-star.
