Well Its about time! first thing they should do is investigate the GM and see what it is he really does or has done aside from chase off or fire all of the valuable employees, use the inn as his own private playground and spearhead the demise and destruction of the integrity of the inn. Not making any staff changes?! They already have begun with not rehiring valuable employees and keeping the young ones who are pretty to look at with nothing upstairs! there is no chef , no restaurant manager, no bar manager and no front desk manager. It would be nice to see owners who were actually there and cared about the inn, could call the bad management decisions and would do things to improve the hotel. Good luck, pay VERY close attention

THIS PLACE IS A DUMP.....I worked there and was terrorized by a long time drunken employee who was friends with the rest. mgr.... I can tell you how unclean restaurant was. too bad a place with such a great history has become an overpriced motel 6. Pablo, the manager at the time..dont know if hes still there....made promises to protect me from constant fear put upon me by other employees...he lied and since then the place has gone drastically downhill. the holiday food was so bad that when I brought it home it wasnt worth eating..especially at about 35.00 a plate. now I can finally speak out.

Your review of Austen's At The Pierpont Inn:

Owner needs to sell property to someone who cares, 10/31/2010
Reviewer: Veronica from Ventura,CA
What a shame with such a wonderful staff and chef all let go recently as of October 30th,2010 because the single Korean owner got in over her head with this purchase.Tells employees Koreans would work harder for less money... vendors not being paid, leaving broken ice machines, refrigerators not working,hotel rooms falling apart, pay roll checks bouncing and everyone from Austins terminated right before the holidays..and she had no restaurant /hotel experience..what were you thinking???? bad karma will follow you woman you better stay out of the ocean as there is a hungry shark waiting for you. Ventura deserves much better
