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

We throughly enjoyed our 2 day visit at the Inn. It has a lovely garden and such charming sitting areas scattered throughout the property. Our favorite spot was the 2 person cozy lounger on the front porch where we enjoyed a visit from a friendly cat, were warmed by the morning sun while listening to the music from the Farmer's... More

We recently enjoyed a 9 night Lavender Inn experience that was just what was needed. The cottage is very private complete with private garden. I was involved in a yoga training in Ojai, but husband found the area & people very welcoming. Judy the owner & staff Diana, Beth, Vanessa & Linda in particular were super friendly & made sure...

I had so much fun at the Lavender Inn in Ojai, Ca. You are out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The area is just so serene. The Inn has the most beautiful back yard for meditating or just a nice wine that they have on premises. The rooms were very comfy and clean with there own bath.... More

I enjoyed everything about my stay. My room was beautiful, with its own patio overlooking the garden. The staff was friendly, and helpful and quick to answer any questions I had. As well as preparing amazing, healthy dishes. The location is perfectly located, near shops and restaurants. I'm already trying to plan, a return trip.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blending comfort with elegance, the Lavender Inn is conveniently located across from shops, galleries, and restaurants. Originally built in 1874, this Bed & Breakfast offers a romantic getaway, garden wedding celebrations, intimate business workshops, family reunions, or a quiet retreat. The gardens are absolutely stunning with mature oaks, 7 fountains, a small pond, and colorful flowers. The interior is tastefully decorated with an array of art and antiques. Full, gourmet breakfast and wine and cheese are served daily on the veranda. Put on one of our lush robes and wander out the front steps for a facial or massage in our Lavender Inn Spa. Look for our cooking classes in our kitchen, Ojai Culinary School, with visiting chefs. ... more   less
