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...

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

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
