What a fabulous find in the serene and sleepy Ojai. My toddler and I shared a room and our friends stayed a couple rooms away. They graciously allowed me to check in a few hours early, nap issues with my little one. The room was perfect, I was in #12, which had a giant king sleigh bed. We took advantage... More

I always read the best and the worst reviews when deciding on a place. If you will notice, the bad reviews are old - this place has clearly been remodeled since then. (Although I meant to confirm this with them before I left and forgot to ask.) I stayed here for one night while on a visit to Ojai with... More

We spent one night here in September. The motel is well situated on the main road just as you enter Ojai. It's a pleasant stroll into the town and main street. It is small, quirky and charmingly decorated and fitted with boho/antique style furniture. Small bathroom with Mediterranean tiles etc. There is a small pool are for cooling off. The... More

This is a quaint property that has been renovated from the 1960 style that it was when it was the old El Camino. It is by no means the Ritz but rates are competitive and the place does have a lot of charm. Each room is different and you can see pictures of each on the hotel's website. The biggest... More

The lady at the front desk (I think it was Debbie, forgive me if I'm wrong) was very nice and super informative. We arrived at 5 and they were having complimentary wine and snacks in the lobby :-). we walked into our room which had a beautiful wrought iron 4 poster bed. There was stained glass and Spanish style furnishing.... More

I enjoyed my stay here. It was clean, great jacuzzi tub and antiques in room, and clean pool and jacuzzi open late. Office is not open all night but was not an issue for me. The desk ladies were helpful and the wine/cheese happy hour and cont'l breakfast were an added touch. Cheaper rates on week nights.

Was able to book a second floor Queen room and the room was delightfully appointed with seemingly unique and "collected" furniture. The bed was very comfortable -(very high off of the ground) and the linens and accessories were of very good quality. While the room was on the small-side, it was very clean, well-kept, and the staff was absolutely charming... More

Enjoyed our two nights there. Debbie and Tammy made us feel like family and we loved the wine and nibbles each night. Would definitely stay there again. It's close to Ventura where we went whale watching and close to town as well.

I needed a pet-friendly get away to one of my favorite places in Southern California - Ojai. This used to be a "chain" motel, but they've delightfully converted it to a one-of-a-kind motel with the feel of an inn. I stayed here based on the other thoughtful reviews on this site and didn't find any of them to be in... More

I'd like to thank the other in-depth reviewers, they were really helpful. I'll keep mine brief, however. Great value for the money (bargain price) and the location was super convenient - walking distance to downtown and restaurants, grocery stores and the beautiful bike path. The room was charming (quirky) and quite acceptable in terms of cleanliness. Come on, people, it's... More
