Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express Ventura Harbor

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Outstanding location on the Harbor and a free trolley."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The moment we arrived, we liked the location and we were very pleased with the staff who attended us. We didn't know how the place would be when we made the reservation. It was also fun to meet the breakfast ladies (ROSA and Alex). Rooms were also great because they overlooked the Harbor and by the entrance door to see your vehicle. I would refer this place to family and friends.
