"Surprisingly Great Moderately Priced Hotel."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Breakfast was very good and the free five pm wine/beer/chips was a bonus. It was off season but rooms was quiet and renovated. We always prefer double queen rooms but we also had a desk on either side of the wall mounted large flat screen TV. There was also a vanity/sink/mirror just outside the room with the toilet which also has a vanity/sink/mirror. This set up was great for two people. There's adequate parking outside and under the building. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. I was very impressed with cleanliness and staff was always wiping and cleaning. The location is a block or two from just about anything downtown, except of course the beach, the pier and harbor area. These require driving but parking is free and available in October. I don't recall seeing any hotel on the beach except the Crown Plaza but you'll pay for that convience.

"Great hotel and location in Ventura."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The location of this hotel is hard to beat. You can walk right over to the beach, downtown Ventura and you're basically within a mile of TONS of different restaurants, shops and plenty of other things. Great room for the price and felt clean and comfy. Breakfast was pretty good (it's free so) and the staff I spoke with was kind and helpful. Recommend this place as a cheaper option that doesn't feel cheap when you stay and it's tough to beat the location in Ventura. I would recommend this hotel to someone looking to explore Ventura.

"Amandine is the deal excellent stylish rooms, price and location."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I was shocked to see the hotel Is exactly as pictured. Excellent craftsmanship. The price is right. I give Amanzi a HIGHLY recommended. I have several appointments at Supreme Court which is 10 minutes from the Hotel. I’ll be back. Didn’t get to see pool area. Was in to sleep out in Morning after a nice Continental Breakfast. Nice Job Amanzi Owners.

"A day at the beach."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
this conveniently located hotel offers helpful amenities, such as a reasonably sized empty refrigerator (sorry, no six dollar candy bars), microwave oven and free Wi Fi. Free offstreet parking and a pool are also offered. The complementary breakfast is freshly made and hearty. For those of us who travel prepared, these elements are excellent benefits. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Thank you for a real good time.

Overall Score5.0/ 5
We spent a long weekend and we were thrilled to find is charming hotel in beautiful Ventura. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly the people at the front desk printed us a map to make sure we got to our destination. The continental breakfast had every thing you could ask for and the attendant eager to please. The rooms are freshly remodeled and quite lovely.
