“Wonderful rooms, clean nice, horrible service”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

This was a fantastic hotel and one I think we will visit again. The rooms were really clean and very comfortable. Each room had it's own enclosed porch that was just delightful. The staff was pretty unfriendly and seemed irritated whenever anyone attempted to ask them for anything and that was quite unfortunate. We tried to rent bikes but they were only available for 1 hour and then would be close to $50 for two people. They didn't replace the toiletries and that was a bit annoying. Though we didn't have time to enjoy the pool, it was fun to have onsite.

BIg rooms, comfortable beds, clean, nice hot shower, good TV, easy parking and checking, friendly staff - the hotel had everything we needed for a wedding weekend in Ojai. It's nothing fancy, but feels more personal than a chain, and the price was great for the area.

I stayed for two nights at the Hummingbird Inn and all in all, the only thing I have to complain is that the Wi-Fi did not work at all. The rooms are spacious, have hardwood floor instread of the inherently unhealthy germ-soaked carpets of other motels, the bed, the furniture, the bathroom equipment all were brand-new or only a few months old. In fact, the whole place looked like it has recently been renovated. The continental breakfast in the spacious breakfast room was very good, as well. I'd definitly return any time.

Room Tip: Get a downstairs room to have private garden area behind it.

Very disappointing. Instant coffee and paper cups in rooms. Two towels and no replacement of
amenities after first night. A couple of things needed repair. Staff at front desk not very friendly.
Continental breakfast also featured paper cups, limited selections. Just an overall unpleasant and unfriendly place.

Charming hotel with hardwood floors. The beds were cozy. I liked the microwave & the fridge in the room. The lobby was fantastic with its complimentary tea (amazing selections!) & lemonade. The pool was nice. Beautiful patio to hang out in. My only complain was how the door completely opened when handle was turned. Not very safe with my one year old. Can't wait to visit again.

Ojai is by far the best getaway for a couple or a family, it's a small town with extremely nice people, just outside of Santa Barbara. Three Moms and two kids took this latest trip and were treated very well by all staff members of the Hummingbird Inn. Breakfast was a nice treat, as they had a variety of foods for the kiddos and adults. We purchased a Groupon and were delighted to see the remodeled rooms, Ojai oil and some delicious cookies, upon arrival. Everyone was accommodating and helpful. The pool is small, quaint and clean -- no complaints. The Hummingbird Inn is close to the Spa, Golf course and you can walk just about anywhere... then again, we came prepared to walk the town, as we did not have a car... we took the train up there from Orange County! Well, we walked for the majority of our trip, but they let us borrow a few of their bikes, which was fun and free. Five stars for the Hummingbird Inn! We can not wait to go back.

First we realized we had no Internet which I was pretty much a huge pain when I had work to get done while here. That was met with a oh well attitude. We were woken up at 730 am to a literal chainsaw outside after reading in their summary their hotel is for rest and relaxation. Also met with a oh well they will be done soon. When we finally had enough to ask for another night as our whole point of coming here could barely be accomplished bc of their Internet we were actually told we already got amazing rates for their hotel. WOW I wanted to not be disappointed but I definitely was.
