Very cute place. Staff was very nice. Chiefs Peak wine bar onsite was wonderful. A charming local scene carefully curated. But for about $250 a night you expect all to be functional. Rm 9 too dark to see in your suitcase. Hot water in tub but not in shower. No heat. Rm 10 heat ok but no hot water anywhere...... More

I was a little iffy about this place, but it turned out great! Very retro and a unique experience. Don't expect a luxury hotel!! This place is somewhat hipster, but the room was nice and so was the staff for a more budget friendly option in Ojai. Very convenient to everything. Would definitely stay again.

We usually stay here every trip to Ojai, because of the Hippy Cali vibe, but this last trip was a disaster. We drove up Sunday night to celebrate my birthday on Monday and we advised the hotel we would be checking in later around 10PM. The front desk staffer called us at 9:21PM to see when we would arrive. Told... More

This place us pretty ridiculous. The folks at the front desk, act as if you're putting them out by asking for simple things-extra soap because it wasn't stocked in the bathroom when you arrived. They have this idiotic, completely out-of-place for Ojai, "hipster snark." Maybe that flies in L.A., not in Ojai. You won't last long here with that attitude.... More

We booked 3 rooms for the June Ojai wine festival. The lady at the front desk was pleasant and welcoming. We were there to attend the wine festival and celebrate our daughter's birthday. The rooms were clean, funky and fun. We asked the front desk if there was breakfast included she advised they did not offer breakfast, but tea &... More

It's very curated for a specific type. There are a lot of cute details and knick-knacks that make for some fun pictures, and creates a funky, modern hippie vibe that feels very cool and in right now. Although I did actually enjoy it, I was also underwhelmed at some bits. The bathroom was horrendous. I felt like I was using... More

Decided to stay here as we wanted to get away from the tourist hotspots, what a great choice. Really friendly reception staff, great quirky room, well appointed and cosy. Took advantage of the free bike hire and headed straight into town via the cycle path at the rear of the inn. Great fun and allowed us to have a few... More

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.
