The Chantico Inn was a perfect choice for us in that it is walking distance from the center of town (three blocks), there is a pleasant sun deck at the front of the Inn, on the second floor, and pool/jacuzzi area at the back of the property for places to relax in the sun. Ojai is not the place for... More

Some negative reviews notwithstanding, we booked this inn for our wedding guests in January, 2010, and hand-picked the rooms we wanted. We established a good relationship with the manager, Sylvia, checked on the rooms, and told them exactly what we needed. The result was excellent - our guests from Virginia thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The location of the Chantico makes... More

First I was promised a room when I made the reservation. Arrived to check in and the room was given away. The receptionist was courteous and gave me a discount for a different room. OMG the room had NO HOT WATER and the mirror was so scratched it looked like a 2 year old had cleaned it with a Brillo... More

We booked this hotel because it was literally the last available room in town. We were were prepared for the worst because of the negative reviews, but we ended up being pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff was courteous and available. The room had everything we could've wanted...perhaps a little too much: fireplace,... More

My mother and young son and I spent 4 days in Ojai and are DELIGHTED with our choice to ignore old reviews and stay at Chantico Inn. The management must have read the reviews as well because we felt like were staying in a different hotel from what we had read about. Our rooms, rugs, towels, linens, beds and robes... More

There are ups, and there are downs. Let's start with the ups: 1. Feels like a bed and breakfast (this could be an up for you...not for us, it is advertised as a hotel and that is what I like). 2. Nice patio (although it is kind of open and public) 3. Good shades on windows for sleeping in 4.... More

We stayed at this inn 1 1/2 years ago - at that time it was fairly new and our stay was pleasant. For some reason, we just received another charge from Chantico Inn on our credit card and couldn't understand what was going on. Called them and asked why our credit card was charged, again, after 1 1/2 years -... More

Odd really is the first name that comes to mind when I think about this hotel. The hotel has a good location, just a few blocks from the center of town. It's a two story building that you might drive by as it's length goes deep and from the street you only see the side. It's sign is small and... More

This "inn" is nothing but a renovated motel. The website photos are utterly misleading and it's unbelievable that they charge $300/night for a room that should be about $75/night. I recommend ponying up to stay at the Ojai Spa or trying to find a B&B. The high-speed internet didn't work either and the front desk staff didn't try to fix... More
