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

First of all, let me establish that I am not one to write a review in the first place, but, I just can't help myself on this one. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel, primarily because it is conveniently close to our relative's home in Ojai. During the first stay we found ourselves just mildly... More

The manager thought he was doing us a favor giving us the manager's room which turned out to be a big mistake. The room has not been upgraded with cracked dirty tiles. It has a separate back entrance but be careful not to leave anything around on the floor because the ants will attack which forced us to throw away... More

We (family of 5) stayed here 2 nights and I am totally baffled by the bad reviews. If you want a luxury resort, stay at a luxury resort. If you want a cute, local inn with tons of warmth and charm this is the place. Customer service was very personal and welcoming. Super cute areas in the lobby and upstairs... More
