I had my reception at the Pierpont Inn on 10.12.13 and it was beautiful! Our wedding had a lot of traditional values. We were married at St. Mary Magdalen's Chapel, where my parents and grandparents were married. The Pierpont Inn was where my mom's parents had their wedding reception and 50th wedding anniversary. It was very special to be able to share this day with my family. I had 2 wedding coordinators throughout the planning process and was nervous that my wedding would get mixed up since my oringal wedding coordinator left, but that was not the case. I worked with Regina the last months before my wedding and she was wonderful to work with. The Pierpont staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. I didn't have a worry in the world the day of our wedding, everything was perfect and so beautiful. We stayed in the large cottage the night before and the night of the wedding and loved it. We received a complimentary breakfast each night we stayed at the hotel which was wonderful. I would like to thank the Pierpont Inn for everything they did to make our event so successful! I recommend this wedding venue to anyone who wants a beautiful view of the ocean! The rose garden and lawn areas are also great place for pictures.

We booked a block of rooms in August 2013 for some wedding guests from out of town, and were very pleased with the Pierpont. They are under new management, and from what we can tell this new management is doing a great job at restoring and improving the place. Many of the rooms have been renovated, and the rest will be soon too. So some of the rooms still seem a bit outdated, but shouldn’t be for long. All our guests mentioned that the beds were very comfortable, even in the rooms that haven’t been redone yet (memory foam we think), and there was a pretty extensive and good hot breakfast included every morning at no additional charge. The location is fabulous, right on the beach. If you’re thinking of staying here, you should also know it’s right next to the 101 freeway, but honestly when I was around visiting guests in various rooms, I couldn’t hear the noise from most of them. We would also like to compliment Severine (a manager I believe) because of how helpful she was with our group. We actually reserved the block of rooms with the interim management, who made a mistake. The Pierpont normally doesn’t allow reserving blocks except for events on the grounds (our wedding was off-site). But when we called to confirm the block with the new management, Severine was able to honor our reservation even though they technically didn’t have to. She continued to be a great help to us in answering all my emails very promptly, and then passing out our welcome packets to our guests as they checked in. The Pierpont is a beautiful old Craftsman building with a lot of character and charm. Ask for a quiet, renovated room, and you won’t be disappointed!

The Pierpont Inn was wonderful. They were flexible. Our set up was great! They food was perfect and everyone in attendance complimented how good it taste. Only minor negative was, they could not find all of the left over table gifts that guests did not take. Otherwise we have high reviews for them.

This historic, quaint hotel is a perfect location overlooking the ocean - and something very different than the typical hotel in Ventura.

The hotel has also gone through major changes over the year; we took the journey with them... and in the end, we're very happy we did. When we first booked services in October 2011 they had a brand new coordinator and whole new management team. Soon after booking, we also found out they were going through bankruptcy and ownership issues. Yes, we had concerns. Yes, this made planning a wedding there feel stressful at times (especially planning from northern California). But, we kept pushing on because we sincerely LOVED it there, and we could truly tell they were working hard to turn the place around. We also began working with another new coordinator, Severine, who was fantastic.

Our wedding day was amazing and everything we imagined! It went so smoothly - great service, good food and clean, beautiful grounds. I would certainly recommend Pierpont Inn as a venue.

Just weeks before our wedding, they acquired new, reputable ownership - and I only hope things will just keep getting better and better for this lovely hotel.

I had my wedding at The Pierpont Inn on August 25th 2012. This is an absolutely beautiful location if you like nature (pretty grounds and the beach surroundings).

I booked my event a year in advance and a couple months after I found out they filed for bankruptcy and changed management.

I panicked at first but Polly Parento (the new event coordinator they brought in) was great. She honored everything that was on my original contract/and or emails.

The food was great. The catering manager was very good at his job. They served 150 guests (with 3 different entree choices) perfectly with no problems. All the guests commented on how good the food was. We served grilled chicken breast with sundried tomato cream sauce, strip steak with grilled onions and a wild mushroom demi glaze, and a vegetable lasagne plate for the vegetarians.

The cocktail hour hor's douvres (hot and cold) were very delicious as well.

The front desk managed passing out my Out Of Town guest bags sufficiently at my hotel guests check in. I had to check on them to make sure they were keeping the list current and right in front of them but they did good overall.

The Vickers Estate they offer the bride and her party is very quaint, nostalgic and has beautiful views of the ocean and a patio.

The grounds for the wedding were beautiful.
The room for the reception is outstanding and perfect. (Check our their facebook page for pictures of events)

I think if you are organized and don't rely on the hotel to do everything you will be fine.

If you like more modern hotels like the Crowne Plaza down the street it's right there for you but if you are a romantic at heart and love quaint, nostalgia, history, and beautiful grounds the Pierpont is the best place to me.

I will definitely use this venue again.

I am so happy I booked my wedding here it is the best most bride and groom friendly place in the world. First of all everyone from the front desk to the maintainence workers and everywhere in between know you are getting married. I am not sure but they all go out of their way for the bride and groom. I don't think any couple ever heard "whatever you need we will make it happen, no problem" The Client Services and Catering Staff is just perfect. We stayed for the weekend and they really had it organized breakfasts lunches dinners events tour packages for walking tours. There is a spa and they come up to your room if you want for the massage. Another really nice service is the hair salon and makeup artist who are right there on sight. The wedding party as well as many of my guest took advantage of the availability of that service. Now for the food well it was mouth watering delicious, very unwedding actually the Executive Chef came out to greet us. Nice touch so do I recommend the Pierpont Inn for your wedding you bet I do.

Severine is the best wedding coordinator out there! She is so helpful and this place is not terribly expensive! We had 110 guests and the cost was $12,000 for the ceremony, reception and the food. We did get our other vendors elsewhere but it was extremely worth it! Severine is very hands on and helpful! I loved everything about our special day. If you are thinking about getting married here...DO IT! The value you get is incredible and the experience is a dream.

I held my wedding reception here. 4:30- 11:30. From day one, when we met with the old event coordinator, everything I planned for this very special day was well understood and delivered. My dream was beginning to transform into reality. Reality to me was having the right place, food, service and at the right $$. I gotta say, everything was beyond my expectations. I (we) was well taken care of at this place. 5 stars to ALL, from front desk to waiters. My guests mentioned that the service was great during dinner and the food was delicious. Our wed had a cocktail hour and the horsd'ourves tasty. I have no complaint at all. Like all weddings somethings gotta happen, even with a change of events manager in the beginning, at my wedding everything, went smoothly and EXACTLY how I wanted it. Jesus and staff dealt with my bridezilla moments and NEVER complaint, The were so sweet, flexible, accommodating and truly cared about MY wedding. Seriously,stop reading negative comments and take the time to stop by, I will definetly reccomend Severine, Jesus and staff to service your upcoming event. Good luck in planning YOUR event!

The Pierpont Inn is situated on top of a hill overlooking Ventura Beach. The Inn is a historic landmark with wonderful charm! All of the staff are extremely welcoming and friendly, although I was disappointed with the dining experience (prior to the wedding) and the fact that menu tasting was not included. The Pierpont offers a wonderful price for the ceremony/reception packages depending on your wedding size. Our wedding took place on one of the front lawns overlooking the ocean and was perfect for our 40 guests. We were able to block off rooms for all of our international guests, and although the small cottages were not available the day of/night of the wedding, they were able to offer the Austen Suite for our wedding night! The Austen suite was beyond perfect following the wedding and the large windows gave breathtaking views of the ocean! They were extremely accommodating to all of our family members and Severine made sure that all of our needs were met for our wedding day!

We hosted a wedding shower champage brunch for my daughter. The service was outstanding and the coordinator, Gina, did a great job working with our decorator and taking care of last minute details so we did not have to. THe event turned out wonderful. I would recommend the PPI to anyone wanting to celebrate their special event in a beautiful location that's reasonably priced.
