Quaint is as quaint does, but at over $400 a night, I expected more amenities than that. (1) The room met the basics: bed, bath, living area (more decorative than useful though - there's no way someone could sit on that dinky couch for very long). (2) The manager was nice and generally helpful. Although, I found it odd that you're pretty much on your own after 7pm. The office closes at 7pm and also for lunch. (Maybe that's an inn thing?) Big plus - He recommend a great breakfast place (although he kind of had to - there is no food at Su Nido aside from the vending machine). Big minus - he sent us on an errand to pick up pamphlets for his display table! Who does that to paying guests?? (3) The wifi connection was a-b-y-s-m-a-l. It kept cutting in and out. (4) You couldn't leave our bottom floor suite without leaving the living room completely exposed. There was no way to close the curtains behind you, so not only is the room open to full view, but anyone can tell if someone is in the room or not. Poor design. (5) The toiletries were sparse, but maybe I've just become accustomed to hotel offerings (cotton balls, q-tips, etc.). They gave us one towel each, and it felt like an imposition to ask for another. (6) You can hear every step anyone takes up and down the stairs outside the room. (7) Also, no gym and no pool.
All those things would be more forgivable, if the price wasn't what it was. At $400+ a night, I feel justified in expecting more from the establishment. Ultimately, if you're going to Ojai and are spending this kind of money, do yourself a favor and shell out the extra $50 to stay at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. I wish we had.
