The Inn has a stunning location. Our room in the original wing of the hotel build in the 1920s had a spectacular view of the gold course and surrounding wooded hills. We are not golfers, but the property has a spa, tennis courts, and other activities. Unfortunately, the town of Ojai can be walked in a few minutes and there is not that much to see. One downside to the Inn is its large footprint. It can be a bit of a hike from one facility to another, and without a map you can get lost. We solved the problem by hailing a bellman in one of the nearly ubiquitous golf carts and had him take us where we were going. Our room had the usual oddities associated with a nearly 100-year-old building, but I suspect the other, much newer, rooms would be more up to date. The Inn was renovated in 2004. We were warned by the reservations staff before booking that the building we selected was old, but friends had suggested it. We can recommend it too. It is centrally located on the property and has its own charm. Bottom line, this is a destination resort, if you are not looking for a self-contained vacation spot, this is probably not what you want. There doesn’t seem to be much in the way of hiking or other local activities. There are 2 or three upscale restaurants in town, but not too many alternatives to the Inn’s own offerings.
