I came for to this place for the night to work on some wedding plans. Nice and warm staff give me an upgrade to a larger room. Great pool, location, and easy parking. Room was dark and not very clean. There was a ring in toliet and hot tub knob was broken and lime stains all over. Not the place... More

This is a fairly standard motel/ inn, but with character! It has a standard two level motel silhouette, but made to look like part of an old Spanish mission. Most of the rooms have a little gated area before the door, with chairs and a table. People seemed to enjoy sitting there in the morning and at dusk. The rooms... More

If i cld give 3.5 stars i would. Pluses: tammy who greeted us and had great info plus a glass of wine. Clean bathrooms. Nice add-oms ( wine and cheese, a bit of breakfast, nice breakfast room, remodeled bathrooms and sink, microwave, minifridge, guidance, etc). Cons: weird furniture. Maybe ' antique,' but also upholstered and cleanliness questionable. The thought is... More

What a fabulous find in the serene and sleepy Ojai. My toddler and I shared a room and our friends stayed a couple rooms away. They graciously allowed me to check in a few hours early, nap issues with my little one. The room was perfect, I was in #12, which had a giant king sleigh bed. We took advantage... More

I always read the best and the worst reviews when deciding on a place. If you will notice, the bad reviews are old - this place has clearly been remodeled since then. (Although I meant to confirm this with them before I left and forgot to ask.) I stayed here for one night while on a visit to Ojai with... More

We spent one night here in September. The motel is well situated on the main road just as you enter Ojai. It's a pleasant stroll into the town and main street. It is small, quirky and charmingly decorated and fitted with boho/antique style furniture. Small bathroom with Mediterranean tiles etc. There is a small pool are for cooling off. The... More

This is a quaint property that has been renovated from the 1960 style that it was when it was the old El Camino. It is by no means the Ritz but rates are competitive and the place does have a lot of charm. Each room is different and you can see pictures of each on the hotel's website. The biggest... More

I enjoyed my stay here. It was clean, great jacuzzi tub and antiques in room, and clean pool and jacuzzi open late. Office is not open all night but was not an issue for me. The desk ladies were helpful and the wine/cheese happy hour and cont'l breakfast were an added touch. Cheaper rates on week nights.
