Hotel Accommodations:

"The Crown Plaza Hotel" Ventura Beach is a modern hotel with spectacular views of the mountains, ocean and the offshore Channel Islands. Hotel is newly remodeled and in my opinion rates a 10 /10. Use the telephone number only if you don’t have access to a computer.
For Sales 1-805-652-5108 9-5 M-F PSTask for Jamie. Mention Clan Munro. Booking online website is

Suggest making reservation as soon as possible as others will be booking reservations for the games. Hotel is located at 450 E. Harbor Blvd., Ventura, CA Hotel is located right on the beach and 1,600 feet south of Seaside Park where the Highland Games will be held on Saturday.

We will follow whatever current regulations are in place at the time.


Los Angeles International (LAX)

Utilize LAX only if you intend to rent a car. Driving takes about 1 hour 25 minutes or 69 miles along the scenic coast. Look for a railroad bridge crossing the 101 at an angle and your off ramp is immediately at the bridge. Turn left at the top of the ramp and then either left again for a parking structure or right to hotel parking lot.

Burbank Airport (BUR)

Highly recommend Burbank / Bob Hope airport as it is less crowded than LAX.
Car Rental
If renting a car driving takes about 1 hour 20 minutes or 65 miles.
AMTRAK is the best way to get to the hotel as the station is a 1000 feet from the airport terminal building.
To purchase tickets online go to Click on Round Trip. In FROM type in BUR, in TO type VEC, Type in date and rime you want to travel to and from Ventura.

Walking from Burbank airport to AMTRAK station
As you exit the main terminal entry turn right and walk down to the second striped walk way and cross the road to the Valet parking area. Take the escalator up to a series of moving walkways that take you to Empire Avenue. Cross over at the striped walkway and then up the ramp to the North Bound Amtrak platform.
Shuttle Service to and from airport to train station
If you are not up to walking you may take a FREE shuttle bus by calling 818-729-2245. The bus pickup point is across the road at the striped walkway at the south end of the Amtrak platform. At the airport terminal go to the bus pickup at the Valet Parking area. Once you arrive at the Ventura Amtrak station look south and the tall building,1,000 feet away, is the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach. We plan to have vehicles at the Ventura station to transport you to the hotel if you choose not to walk.
