An Historic Inn, great Ojai location and beautiful grounds. Our favorite part of our stay was sitting out back nicely landscaped with mature trees, fountain, pond, garden sipping wine. They serve wine and snacks at 5 p.m. Breakfast was very good but what I've grown to expect from a B&B. The bed was arguably the worst I've ever slept in,... More

The inn is located in the heart of town, walking distance to all the charming boutiques and restaurants. we rented the cottage for 3 guests and a dog. the property is fabulous. the breakfast was unbelievably good and accommodated both vegans and gluten-free diets - there was pear juice, orange juice, soy chorizo, potatoes, granola, fresh fruit, and more. also,...

I came to the Lavender Inn last month for a quick getaway and it was everything I could have hoped for. It was the perfect place to write and relax. Considering how quiet it was, I wouldn't have guessed it was right downtown. The service was top notch, and the breakfasts were absolutely to die for. I'll definitely be back... More

I stayed at the Lavender Inn with my dad while we were visiting family and we had a really great experience. The whole staff was really welcoming, and we had one of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time. The Inn is situated in a central location, with some great food, galleries, and shopping all right across the... More

The hotel is lovely with pleasant rooms, a nice garden in the back and two, friendly resident cats that are great if you miss your pets. The people working there were thoughtful and helpful. However, I was totally amazed when the hostess smilingly told me that breakfast was served at 9 a.m. It made me wonder if they had a... More

In February a gal pal of mine and I took our annual girlfriend getaway. We stayed in three different inns north of Santa Barbara and they were all interesting and fun. However, when we returned home I noticed I had taken many more photos when at the Lavender Inn in Ojai than the others. In reflecting on that, I realized... More

Stayed here with four girlfriends around the holidays and I'm still dreaming of our getaway. The rooms were quaint, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was a gourmet spread of delicious treats. The garden...well, I could have spent days in that relaxing garden. The staff is friendly and helpful and they supported us having a little painting session one afternoon. I... More

Each time we stay at the Lavender Inn we simply love it more. The inn keepers treat us like cherished house guests, the breakfasts are divine (hearty vegetarian), each room charming in its own unique way, and the location is the best in town. We can't imagine staying anyplace else in Ojai, including the "fancier" places that cost so much... More

The Lavender Inn is a special place. The owner and staff are exceptional; quality people offering a quality B&B experience. The B&B itself is delightful with beautiful gardens and uplifting decor. I recommend the Provence Cottage if you like more space and privacy as it has its own private outdoor space. Although, all the rooms are delightful through their own... More

Wonderful to sit on the porch or the side yard garden. The inside is quite roomy and light. It's decorated in craftsman or mission style. The cottage (one bedroom + living room annex off of the kitchen) was quite comfortable. The vegetarian breakfasts were very good. It's euro bread with homemade jam, granola and an omelette or other egg dish... More
