I decided to come here on my birthday week - and it was in early January. The format is like a motel - the colors and the theme of the Ojai Rancho Inn are very interesting. A lot of wood, symbols - very "hip" and retro especially with the bus in the back. I kind of liked how there were... More

We stayed at the Ojai Rancho Inn for a weekend while attending a wedding next door at the Ojai Valley Inn. It was a reasonably priced option of a quirky, updated motel. We had a jacuzzi room which was great- it's a decent size tub that fits two people well. The king bed was comfy, there was a microwave and... More

Big rooms, very clean and easily accessible! I was pleasantly surprised by the roominess and cleanliness! It is within walking distance to downtown and many great restaurants. The bedding is very comfortable, will go back.

Hilarious hipster motel, filled with people who look like they've dressed up as hipsters for the weekend. I'm not kidding. Half the dudes were wearing old style hipster hats like it was 2010, and every couple had a five-year old and a little rescue dog. I got some serious dirty looks from some of these people as I myself don't... More

1950s at its best, this is a cute motel straight from the past BUT without the past price tags. Modest and clean nothing fancy, thinking its more like glamping (fancy camping) Front desk people very helpful and very nice Can't walk to town really, you can and should obviously for exercise but to the good restaurants its a bit of...

Very simple, rustic and designed with the hipster set in mind. Surprisingly comfortable mattress. Town is a walk or borrow the bikes to ride around on. Pool was closed. Bathrooms need updating, but things were clean and we were very happy with everything. Very charming. Front desk lady was super warm and friendly. The bar is very awesome as was... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nites in room 2. As other reviews mention the rooms are kind of dark and a bit noisy if you get a room near the front. Kind of old fashioned but neat and clean. For Ojai the price seems about right. I agree with others that in room coffee would be nice, especially... More

My husband and I loved our 2 nights at this darling little hotel. VERY sad the pool area is closed however. It looks so cute back there! We had a drink in the bar area and loved the vibe! The staff was very kind and helpful, a special shout out to the kind lady working the front desk. She recommended... More

First let me say I love hotels and motels!!! The older the better. Usually as long as the location is clean and the room semi-updated, I am okay. This "inn" is an old- fashioned, post highway building era, drive up motel. It is located on the major thoroughfare of Ojai, so it is noisy most of the time with the... More
