We found this place as we drove into Ojai, had no plans for hotel and very glad we made our choice to stay there.
The good: very clean and eye pleasing landscaping, great back yard-loan with beautiful old oak tree (our baby had fun running around), good continental breakfast with good quality condiments, coffee strong, bagels also good and healthy options, variety of fruit. even though the place is right on the highway, the noise is cancelled by the fence and the trees. If you are on the back you can't hear anything. Overall the outdoors is very pleasant and relaxing, each room has chairs and table to have a nice eve-out with a glass of vino and a good friend. SPA worked well and the area was very clean and updated. Rooms are good size, with good linens, comfortable beds, tv, dvd and bathrobes. Bathrooms are clean with updated and good quality tub, sink and toilet.
Needs an improvement: the heater once turned on was very dusty and it took a couple of hours for the dust to clear out, the heater is an old wall heater and AC is a wall AC. This is the only thing that was a bit inconvenient.
Otherwise extremely good experience. Looking forward coming back this Spring to catch the green rolling hills and everything blooming.
