You get the good and the bad with the Capri. It was clean, casual, excellent mattress, friendly and helpful staff, good location, pet friendly, fenced patio for the dog. I will stay here next time I come to Ojai. It could have been fantastic except for some obvious shortcomings. The back door didn't lock (security issue), there were holes in... More

the hotel is older but a lovely charming room with hardwood floors and white shutters. We had a balcony overlooking a grassy area. The pool was very nice and surrounded by palms and bamboo. Very close to downtown.

An aged hotel with hip, updated lobby and rooms. Don't be fooled by the uninspired building. This hotel/motel is walking distance to "downtown" and will pleasantly surprise. We stayed one night only, but would have lingered, had we had time.

The Capri is a good choice among the over-expensive hotels in Ojai. The mid-century lobby is awesome--dark wood, original stone, white furniture & big windows. The pool is a big rectangle with a separate kids pool. The lobby & pool areas are surrounded by palm trees and bamboo, giving it a serene, secluded feel. The rooms also feel soothing, with... More

My partner and I wanted a decent hotel to spend the night in before heading for an early morning hike near Ojai. I called to make the reservation and asked for one of their patio rooms so that our dog could have a little outdoor space. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the hotel's vintage... More

I luv Ojai. Will never stay at this hotel again. Dirty in places that you can tell they don't clean well... drapes, shower curtain, lounge chair in room (looked like blood..yikes), walls, jacuzzi. Staff, including owner are surly and don't like groupon, even though they participate in the program. I was told they don't receive that much money from coupon... More

Let's be frank: it's a 1960s-era hotel (complete with Fred Flintstone-style fireplace wall in the lobby) that new owners have spiffed up a bit but it's still a little rough around the edges. So don't consider this a direct competitor to the Ojai Valley Inn ($350 and up a night), ok? However, for the $$ we felt it was a... More

What a cute mid-century boutique hotel! This has got to be the best deal in Ojai. The rooms are a great size with modern furniture and even a record player. If you come with a pup, ask for a first floor patio room -- the patio is huge and a great option even for bigger dogs. Location is also walkable... More

WOW! The Capri is exquisite stylish atmosphere. The colors of lightness and freshness are delightful surroundings for good feelings and memorable time. Also, I have never been n a cleaner hotel anywhere at any price ever. Amazing! Really! The place should be labeled "Boutique", as the grounds and furnishings are impeccably beautiful. The swimming pools are so nice. There's a... More
