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

A four night stay at the inn was not only pleasant and comfortable, but we experienced the most helpful, kind, caring and compassionate customer service we had ever encountered. Shelia and Therese greeted us with warm smiles and laughter, they were quick to find an answer to any question asked. Unforeseen circumstances kept us staying longer than expected and not... More

The Inn was more of a motel setting. It is relatively old but the owner has renovated the rooms' interior. Nice comfortable bed and sunken tub. The facility is clean, has a pool and each room has a small porch with two chairs. The room lighting is very poor and needs improvement.

A fun southwest style motel accomodation with comfortable huge wooden beds. We had a jacuzzi in our room and the motel was an easy walk or cycle (bicycles provided) to excellent restaurants. Just a few things I must mention that would make your overall experience much more favorable. The bathroom requires attention in that the grouting should be replaced as... More
