Sweet rustic retreat with kitchenette available. Pet friendly, on-site wine/beer bar. Lovely, hospitable lobby with fireplace and friendly service. There's a private pool, which I didn't visit. Very clean and well-kept.

We did not stay the night at this resort but were spent the day here for a wedding. The rooms are adorable and the pool area is perfect. It has a great 70's vibe and you can't help but smile here. I would recommend this Inn for a unique but comfy stay.

My Husband and I stayed here for a couple nights last week. We were very worried about staying at this Inn but our friend had booked it for us since we all taking a quick vacation. I work in the advertising/marketing business and was worried right away with their actual website. It seems like they are hiding that they are...

So here's the thing. This is a motel that's gone hipster. Feels like Silcerlake LA found its vibe right there on the side of the road in Ojai. And that's a good thing. It's groovy cool and fairly comfortable. With jacuzzi. And it's got this fun little bar with great drinks and pretzels and a guy spinning records by the...

Ojai Rancho Inn: Not an 8.6 or even a 6! I don’t know where they got that picture they show on Booking but I was ripped off with their $179 room, discounted 15% to $149. A reasonable deal, I think since we booked a Monday night in March the preceding Thursday. Our usual choice, the Chantico, was booked on this...

Very cute place, but not a ton to do on site. We were just there for a overnight, and the on-site bar randomly stayed closed 2 hours passed it's posted "open" time (4pm). So, kind of screwed with our plan to grab an easy drink before dinner. There was no apology extended by the office, either...

I stayed at Ojai Rancho inn several weeks ago. I originally emailed this to the hotel did not receive a response until just recently... My concerns were completely ignored... I got electrocuted from faulty wiring on the bedside lamp. Pillows are as hard as cardboard. I booked a room with a bathtub and did not receive a room with a...

If you prefer funky over chic this is place is for you. The newly renovated drive in motel remained true to its Wild West Motel feel with a tipi tent in the pool area for good measure. Loving attention to detail (loved the palo santa sticks at check-in), spacious and well kept rooms and a decent bathroom made for a...

Love old drive up motels. This one is decorated very comfortably. Staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed having loaner bicycles there to explore the area. Great having their cozy hip bar right there for a nightcap!

Ojai Rancho Inn is awesome and run by very down-to-earth people. It is not fancy, so if you are looking for a luxurious getaway, this is probably not the place for you. If you want all modern comforts and a cool vibe, then you will be pleased. The rooms are clean and spacious and the spa tubs are awesome, so...
