This place is fantastic. Huge, luxurious, intricately appointed rooms make it a perfect romantic getaway. Staff is friendly and helpful, and the breakfast in the morning has tons of great options including fresh scones, croissants, eggs, yogurt, fruit, etc etc. A real treat. It's also walking distance to a great hike that overlooks the whole valley.

We were in the Feather Room which was lovely and had its own private patio. Unfortunately we hit a weekend with cold rainy weather so we couldn't use... More

My husband and I first stayed before our children were born, so at least eight years ago, and we were so impressed with the beautiful setting, comfort and decor as well as the cleanliness that we kept going back. Now, this is the place I go to when I want a wee break from our hectic household. Children under 12... More

A wonderful gem of a hotel. From now on, this will be the only hotel we stay at in Ojai. The suite was delightful with comfortable beds, private and usable patios, a cozy fireplace and an overall quiet and serene ambiance. We found this hotel by mistake and it will forever be Ojai Valley Inn and Spa's loss. A destination... More
