I found a deal for the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa on Vacation-ist and had heard so many great things about the resort, so I decided to schedule one night (Sunday) for my husband and I to have a little celebratory get-away. We were truly overwhelmed by the level of customer service provided by literally EVERY resort employee. The food we ate was fantastic, our room was gorgeous, the herb pool was one of the most beautiful pools we've ever had the good fortune to lounge by, and the food served there blew us away! Never would I have imagined I could get a gourmet heirloom tomato & smoked mozzarella panini on olive bread, served on my own personal table top by the chef! I have also not had a resort concierge reach out to me to assist in scheduling reservations like our couples massage and our special anniversary dinner at Maravilla. PLUS the little extras that were available to help make our trip even more special were a great touch.

We will definitely be back (maybe for 5 year anniversary?), and have recommended the property to friends already. Our stay was Sunday noon through Monday late afternoon, so we were able to miss the crowds and the weather was absolutely gorgeous (mid september). Do yourself a favor and schedule a little get-away! It's not cheap, but well worth the slurge in my opinion!

Room Tip: We upgraded to a mini-suite and it was really beautiful.

This hotel is so well done, understated and elegant. The mission style buildings and the landscaping is perfect. The standard king room was very comfortable and the bed was super comfy. Room service was a bit pricey and just ok (when is room service food ever as good as it sounds on the menu?). Also, the boiler wasn't working one day and I had to take a tepid shower. But the atmosphere and relaxation at the spa more than made up for it!

This is a gorgeous resort. The grounds, golf course, spa, pools, restaurants and rooms are all first rate. Definitely a piece of heaven. If you want lots of exercise or simply want to relax, the choice is yours. I took a wonderful Pilates class and played golf, but I could just as easily simply read a book and enjoyed the peaceful nature of the property.

For our 27th anniversary, we spent a lovely day and night at the Ojai Valley Inn. We were treated like Royalty from the moment we arrived until we checked out. We had a beautiful upgraded room , spent time in the sun at the Herb Garden pool drinking amazing frozen lavendar margaritas. The staff at the pool was most attentive, took care of our every need. Dinner in the Marvilla restaruant was superb. We sat on the terrace overlooking the Mountains, and enjoyed the best shortribs EVER! I only wish we had more time to enjoy all of the amenities.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms.

My husband & I have gone to the beautiful Ojai Valley Inn & Spa many times over the years. It has always been such a wonderful treat!! We really needed a "stress reliever", and took advantage of a "promo" and just got back from our wonderful overnight stay. Upon arrival we were taken to a wonderful room with a beautiful view of the golf course and a patio porch.A few minutes later, we were surprised with an amenity of wine, cheese, fruit and crackers accompanied by a note from Shaun O'Bryan, Resort Manager, welcoming us back and thanking us for our loyalty. As always, all the staff is very solicitous & very pleasant. We were able to take advantage of the "twilight golf" as the heat was lessening and the course wide open! Even our scores reflected the relaxation we felt just being there! We just love playing this course! Again, we enjoyed the wonderful excellent food and ambiance of the Inn.We want to thank you for a GREAT time! Mary & Richard Hultine

We had no experience with the Ojai area as we usually go out to Palm Desert and surrounding areas when we want to get away and relax for a few days. We were blown away by the beauty of the Ojai valley but even more so with the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. The service was unbelievable and we didn't want to leave when our stay was ending. Both my husband and I have been in the travel business for a combined 55 years and we have traveling extensively. The Ojai Valley Inn & Spa is now on our "top ten" list for vacation travel and I can tell you it's right up at the top!!

This is our first trip to the Ojai Valley Inn and to Ojai itself. We had very high expectations because of the descriptions and reviews. In our opinion, they were not quite met. We stayed one night in the Shangri La Fireplace room. The room is a wonderful size with a beautiful direct view of the golf course. Even though there were other rooms adjacent to ours, it had the feeling of a private villa.
We would have preferred parking closer to our room. It was a significant walk to the parking area, which was very noticeable due to the high temperature of the day. Also, the lighting in the bathroom was far below the normal illumination one would expect.
Check-in was 4:00PM, but we did not get our key until 4:45PM. There seemed to be a lot of miscommunication with the front desk.
The signature restaurant was outstanding. We were fortunate to have a wonderful waitress serving our table.
