Welcome to the Viking Motel Ventura
Take a trip down the Southern California coast and stay at our beautiful motel in Ventura. From your hotel room it's a quick 5-minute drive to get to a sunny beach and plenty of ocean fun. We are ideally located in the heart of midtown Ventura where you can easily access surrounding entertainment and attractions from the California coast. If you don't want to surf at Ventura Beach or tour the Channel Islands, there are plenty of shops for you to visit while staying out of the hot sun. You can have your choice of beach or major California city to spend your time at when you stay at Viking Motel.
Once you arrive at Viking Motel you won't want to leave. You would be tempted to stay in our comfortable and fully equipped rooms if it wasn't for all the activities Ventura has to offer. The Ventura County Fair and the annual Strawberry Festival are fun and exciting ways for you to spend your time. Whatever it is that brings you to sunny Southern California, book now and make Viking Motel your California vacation destination today.
Ventura Pier & Promenade
Since its original construction in 1872, the Ventura Pier has stood as a symbol of the region's rich history and natural resources. Once the cornerstone of Ventura County's agricultural, construction and oil trade, today the Ventura Pier is a favorite attraction for fishing, picnics, sunset strolls and beautiful views of Ventura County's coastline and the Channel Islands.
Mission San Buenaventura
Mission San Buenaventura is a Spanish mission founded by the Franciscan order in present-day Ventura, California. Founded on March 31, 1782, it was the ninth Spanish mission established in California, and the last to be established by Father Junípero Serra. Named for Saint Bonaventure, the mission is the namesake of the city of Ventura (officially "San Buenaventura") and Ventura County.
