“Absoultely Flawless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

We spent our anniversary weekend at Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. Our experience was drool-worthy. I will dream of this getaway for weeks.
We received AMAZING service, our spa experience was epic, our dinner at Maravilla was top notch, 5 star amazing (have the half chicken and mac n cheese!). Barbara, the spa pool manager, was amazing, Adam our server for our Cabana was the best we have ever had.
The property is the stuff movies are made of.

Its the perfect getaway if your in LA or Santa Barbara, its just far enough to feel away, but close enough that its not an annoying drive.

We were so happy that I will be calling back today to schedule our next stay.

We had a very beautiful room in a gracious place, with spectacular views from a deep terrace overlooking the herb garden pool on to the distant hills slightly misty from the ocean breezes. This was paradise in every sense of the word, and so close to Los Angeles! I wish we had more time here, and will definitely seek to return soon. It is ideal for either an active vacation, or a relaxing spa vacation. Several outdoor dining options complete the harmony achieved from indoors to outside.

Room Tip: Shangri-la vista King a huge value with beautiful balconies and views.

Ojai Valley Inn and Spa is an outstanding resort that provides personal and attentive service in a magnificant setting. The location is beautiful and the amenities of this resort are superb. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and to ensure that your visit is memorable. The grounds and facilites are world class and the food is consistently well-prepared. We have eaten in all of the restaurants and find the quality to be excellent.

This is a world class resort with a very friendly and unpretentious ambiance. We have visited several times and return because of the quality of the experience. You'll not be disappointed; the setting is magical and the service is exceptional.

Room Tip: We love the Neff building and prefer it to all of the others. Built in the 20s with California Missi...

Just returned from a short stay at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. Everything was wonderful. The place and grounds are just gorgeous! Had dinner and breakfast outside on a beautiful patio overlooking the spectacular golf course. The service is the best I have ever experienced from any other 5 star hotel! Even was invited to a wine and cheese hour that they have on Thursday nights. Great wine, delicious cheeses and crackers and lovely people in a beautiful garden setting. The Herb Garden adults only pool is beautiful and serene. No screaming kids (which there were a lot of at the family pool). They even came around with little snacks and lots of ice water. My husband loved smoking a cigar outside seated around a fire pit. What a lovely romantic getaway!!

Came here for a meeting. They put a $1500 hold on my cc that lasted 10 days. I spent $30 there.

Food was awful. Stale bread, dry meat. Unimaginative. Terrible. I will never go back on my own dime.

Only highlight were the desserts. Pastry chef should find a new place to work. He/she is too good for this pit.

Hi Amber,
Allow us to begin by apologizing for your disappointing experience at our Inn. Whether positive or negative, we appreciate your feedback as it critical for us to take corrective action in the future.

We're sorry you didn't like our dining options, as usually we receive positive reviews about our culinary endeavors. We will be sure to tell our Pastry Chef, Calvin, that you enjoyed his confections!

Holding money for incidentals is a standard industry practice that all hotels and resorts practice, although the 10-day time period you mentioned does seem too long. We are concerned about this time frame and have contacted our Reservations & Finance departments to look into this.

We have used your feedback to address the issues you experienced while here at the Inn and we hope to have you back for another stay. We would love to show you the 5 Diamond hospitality that Ojai Valley Inn & Spa is famous for!

Just came back from a girls weekend. What a wonderful escape that's only a short drive away from LA...The property is beautiful, the service staff is friendly and helpful, the decor is charming, the ambiance is absolutely serene. We visited the spa and did the Kuyam treatment which is great for our group of 6 girls. Even though we were there only from Saturday to Sunday, we all felt so relaxed and recharged, it felt like we had been there longer. They certainly do pay attention to details: the rooms are immaculate, wifi is included, LA Times is delivered to your front door in the morning, and they treat you with delicious pixie oranges in little cute welcoming baskets. No complaints here!

Stayed only one night, but should have stayed longer. The room was a mini fireplace suite. It had a big separate living room and a very big bedroom. Worth paying extra for. Amazing grounds, wonderful staff, loved the spa. Definitely going to go back!
