Our History

Built by famed LA architect Sumner P. Hunt, the historic hotel boasts 79 rooms, suites, and cottages; and includes a beautifully landscaped rose garden and scenic ocean bluff. Ideal for destination weddings, company retreats, and family reunions, guests will enjoy strolling to Ventura State Beach, taking the local trolley downtown, and indulging in classic American fare at Austen’s Restaurant.

The friendly staff at The Pierpont Inn have been welcoming auto enthusiasts traveling the Pacific Coast Highway since 1910, with no plans of slowing down anytime soon!

For over 100 years, The Pierpont Inn has been enjoyed by countless generations of families and has been a mainstay for the Ventura community. Long known as The Lovely Lady by the Sea, the Inn is the story of two remarkable women, one who created her and one who maintained her. Both commissioned their sons in the operations and expansion of the property.

  • “Amazing Stay”

    Recently my husband and I stayed at this beautiful property. The rooms have been remodeled and they are stunning. Dorothy at the front desk is exceptionally professional, bright and friendly. She answered all my questions and was very helpful. I would highly recommend this property and we look forward to our next stay here.

  • “Sons Wedding”

    The most beautiful wedding venue. The staff was delightful and the food and beverage wonderful. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed linens were like sleeping on a cloud. It was like a mini vacation even though we live in town. Wonderful breakfast at Austin's the following morning. Loved it.
  • “A wonderful experience”

    Can't say enough about this wonderful hotel...from the front desk check-in to check-out. The room was immaculate and it had a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean. Room included a small refrigerator and microwave and free parking. Will definitely go there again.
  • “Pleasant Getaway ”

    We had a wonderful weekend stay while in Ventura for a wedding. The views of the Channel Islands are incredible and staff was super helpful. Take time to enjoy the restaurant. Good food and amazing staff. If we lived in Ventura we would have breakfast there at least once a week!
