The women who was at the front desk should be working at a 5 star resort- her customer service was excellent and much appreciated. The Jacuzzi tub in the room was nice and relaxing, the robes they have in the room are old, and so are the towels and thin. The hotel is within walking distance of the small main... More

Nasty hotel. Out dated, pillows gross and yellow with no cases. Blankets had burns and who knows what else stained on it but my FAVORITE are the ANTS that joined in my BED!!!!!!! DO NOT STAY AT THIS MOTEL! They did nothing for us when we told them that there were ants all over the bed so this must be... More

OK, first let me start by saying that I am the kind of person who drives past the signs that say 'Not a Through Street' imagining that the sign is lying and I will actually get through...that being said, you will understand how after reading many horrible reviews I STILL wound up at this 'hotel' for 3 nights. Here is... More

This hotel has apparently been renovated fairly recently, as everything about it is fresh and welcoming. We spent two weekend nights while in town for Ojai's wonderful annual Storytelling Festival. The continental breakfast each morning was more than enough to keep us satisfied for several hours--choices of make-your-own waffles to instant oatmeal, bagels, cold cereal and fresh fruit. It's about... More

Beds were comfortable, linens were clean. Loved Spanish style of the rooms and hotel and friendlystaff. The patio, right outside your room, were you can go and enjoy a glass of wine. They have a morning continental breakfast that is good and every night they have a wine happy hour, which is great. Every room decorated differently with antic furniture... More

My wife and I stayed here as a retreat after tax season and for getting some R&R time. Our room was very nice, the bed was very comfortable and the decor was nice. There were a few items that needed to be tweaked, like a couple of trim tiles that needed to be replaced, but other than that, it was... More

We had a delightful stay at Chantico Inn in Ojai, CA. The Inn is inviting and the staff is friendly and professional. We took an impromptu trip to celebrate March "Pixies" (Ojai's tangerines) Month, so our stay was short (one night), but you get a good feel about the Inn. The Inn is located within a few short blocks of... More

Horrible experience. Depending on what room you get, you'll either be too short for the sink, or too tall. The design of the rooms are very strange. Looks nice online, but very disappointed once we got there. I had to get a chair to brush my teeth and wash my face. There was no table. The room was so dark,... More

The room is worth about $60. It's just a motel with fancy furniture. I don't like the interior design anyway. No carpet. Little nuisance tiles that make the floor look disorderly. The staff are nice. The breakfast is mediocre, The jacuzzi is nice but you hear neighbors' late night so the insulation is not good. The bed is big and... More

When we checked there were no cars in the parking lot. They made it sound like they were full. We took one of the rooms. It was a warm day so we laid by the pool. We found a stack of room keys (10) on a table. Since the hotel was empty we checked to see if the keys worked... More
