I highly recommend this wonderful B&B! An historic Victorian home 1/2 block from the downtown Ojai area (such as it is), and every room is a lovely gem. Some come with bathrooms; others have shared bathrooms. Each is charmingly decorated, all around a particular theme. I stayed in the Craftsman room, which was spacious with its own bathroom, and at... More

I am from Laguna Beach and came back to the Lavender Inn.. I cannot get enough of this place. The grounds, the staff, the rooms, the killer breakfasts and the tapas with wine make this beautiful place way above the rest. I strongly recommend it to anyone looking to get away and totally relax.

This was my second stay at The Lavender Inn and once again it does not disappoint. It's wonderfully located within easy walking distance of great restaurants and much of the town. The staff also gave us great recommendations on local hiking spots - which were stellar - as well as great dining spots nearby. The breakfast was delicious and offered... More

This is the only place in Ojai worth staying. The hardest part is getting a weekend stay as it seems always fully book even months ahead. I came to visit my daughter at the Weil Academy and found it very conveniently located and there's a great healthy grocery shop in front. Very safe and I felt just at home. Looking... More

We were very happy to find the Lavender Inn. We had been wanting to check out Ojai for some time and had found the Lavender Inn online. Everything exceeded our expectations. The Inn was very clean, staff was extremely friendly and accomodating, food was delicious and the location was perfect. We especially loved the late afternoon tapas and wine. We... More

We rented out the Lavender Inn for the weekend of Memorial Day for our daughter's wedding. The wedding was in the garden, and the wedding party all stayed in the Inn for the weekend. The staff, the facility, the entire experience was flawless, fantastic, and made great memories that will last a lifetime. Excellent meals showed up without hassle or... More

We loved our stay. Beth is such a star and so friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the laid back charm of the inn and delicious gourmet breakfast. The rooms are beautifully presented with super comfy bed. We loved the two gorgeous cats on the porch. The location is fantastic and close to restaurants. The overall appearance is beautiful with a... More

Whenever I think about going to Ojai, I call the Lavender Inn. It's in a perfect location, the middle of town but off the main street so it's quieter and you can walk everywhere. The people there are helpful and friendly, the breakfasts and afternoon treats are fabulous. All the rooms are fun to stay in, each with a different... More

Overall our experience was very good. The location is very close (literally steps away) from the shopping area. Although, we were awoken early some days by garbage trucks servicing the area. The breakfast offerings are well done, and is available from 9-10am. The room itself has a rustic feel and the walk out deck was a nice feature to get... More

We travel with our pet and The Lavender Inn is pet friendly. I also wanted to be close to the town center. The location couldn't be better. Everything is in walking distance. The staff is professional but laid back. They were so relaxed about our pet. There's a large enclosed yard area and we were allowed to leave our pet... More
