I love staying in a small inn where the owners are still excited about sharing homemade food and their town with guests. It really is the most touching part of the process--you enter a stranger but you're treated like a friend. This was very much our experience at the Lavender Inn. From check-in to tapas to breakfast, the concern for... More

Beautiful historic B&B in the heart of Ojai. Dog-friendly, beautiful big back lawn for dogs to roam. Delicious breakfasts with several options. Sweet rooms, many with views of the Topa Topa Mountains, and friendly and warm staff. Fireplace on from 5-6 with Tapas and Wine. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

The Lavender Inn was lovely. We stayed two nights and very much enjoyed ourselves. The location can't be beat - perfectly located in the middle of Ojai and ample parking for guests. Each room was unique - definitely look at the website to pick the one best suited for you. We have pet allergies so chose the Craftsman room which... More

Hi A.G! I truly appreciate your suggestions and will act on them! I will check to see what room you were in and replace the pillows, and I will check all the rooms! Flat pillows are annoying when you are trying to sleep - we can't have that. We will also check each room for hangars; the lack of hangars... More

My Daughter has visited the Lavender Inn on numerous occasions, and told us often, that it was a special place. In fact, it was so special, that she decided to have her wedding there. What a great decision!! Our family members stayed at the Inn and the accommodations and food could not have been better. The rooms are distinctive and... More

We chose the Lavender Inn as the spot to celebrate a Best Friend's Birthday. We reserved the Province Cottage with its cozy living room, private garden, and handy kitchenette. We also booked into the Lavender Room with its private balcony overlooking the gardens. The public rooms are all beautifully appointed and offer comfortable spots to congregate. The bedrooms are all... More

Hi Fay! Hmmmm….. Your review sounds like your stay was "absolutely the best" but you gave us the lowest rating. Did you intend to give us a higher rating or are we missing something? Thank you so much! The Breakfast Divas More

My boyfriend and I went to Lavender Inn a couple of weeks ago for the first time and everything was better than perfect. The rooms and whole property is so beautiful and serene.

We stayed at the lavender Inn for a Final get away before my daughters wedding. We were so welcomed and her vegan diet was so wonderfully accommodated without a blink. We were so in love that we stayed an extra night! We now have decided to make this beautiful place part of our annual adventure.

This pet friendly B&B is an absolute delight! We stayed in the cottage with our 10 year old pooch and found the room to be spacious and nicely appointed--well worth the extra $$. The staff is gracious and the evening wine and cheese social and breakfast buffet in the morning were both superb. There are also great restaurants and shops... More

The Lavender Inn is the perfect quite getaway! The Inn has a great feeling to it, it is comfortable and feels like a home away from home. The property is quiet with a beautiful garden but just around the corner is downtown Ojai, offering you the option to go out for meal, take part in local events, or just go... More

My husband and I spent my birthday weekend at the Lavender Inn upon the affectionate ratings from an old school friend. We are not Bed & Breakfast people by any stretch but I wanted to do something different for my special day. We stayed in the Craftsman room it was clean and roomy with our own private bath. It was...

Hi Sherena! Thank you for giving B&Bs and Lavender Inn a try! When I first stayed in a B&B, I had a bad experience and didn't try one again for years. Finally I attempted it again and had a great experience! When I bought the Lavender Inn (I changed the name) 12 years ago, I was determined to create an... More
