In 1985, San Francisco Bay area designer Tom Brooks was commissioned to create an Inn from the existing structure of an historic 1940's California-Spanish style firehouse and Clocktower. Focusing on the Spanish influences predominant in the American Southwest, he transformed the main hall of the firehouse into a comfortable lobby with fiber wall hangings, original art, beamed ceilings, handsome wood furnishings and a large fireplace. Thus, The Clocktower Inn Hotel, Ventura, California, with its easy grace and rustic simplicity, has evolved; perfectly suited to Southern California hospitality. We are located in the heart of historic downtown Ventura in a beautiful park setting, the Inn is adjacent to Mission San Buenaventura and the Historical Museum. The State Beach, restaurants, antique shops, boutiques, and Country Fairgrounds are all within easy walking distance. The temperate year-round climate allows plenty of time to take advantage of local attractions. Come share our tradition of warmth and hospitality that is as distinctive as our clocktower. Comfortable Accommodations, our personal touch of home and our always ready to serve staff make sure your visit to the hotel is most memorable. We provide the tired traveler with an incredible stay for a competitive price. Family members can visit our neighbor attractions.
