If you prefer funky over chic this is place is for you. The newly renovated drive in motel remained true to its Wild West Motel feel with a tipi tent in the pool area for good measure. Loving attention to detail (loved the palo santa sticks at check-in), spacious and well kept rooms and a decent bathroom made for a...

Love old drive up motels. This one is decorated very comfortably. Staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed having loaner bicycles there to explore the area. Great having their cozy hip bar right there for a nightcap!

Ojai Rancho Inn is awesome and run by very down-to-earth people. It is not fancy, so if you are looking for a luxurious getaway, this is probably not the place for you. If you want all modern comforts and a cool vibe, then you will be pleased. The rooms are clean and spacious and the spa tubs are awesome, so...

This old motel has been renovated into a hip, fun place. On the west side of Ojai, it is a ten minute walk, next to the road, to get to the post office. Because it's an older property with a breezy atmosphere, the rooms are far from sound proof; you hear the cars roll in and out and the neighbors...

There are many positive things about the Ojai Rancho Inn. Parking is easy, downtown Ojai is easy to reach - especially walking the trail at the rear of the property - the rooms are clean and spacious and nicely decorated. The reception staff member on arrival was really friendly and welcoming and staff tended to our problems immediately and resolved...

We came here with a group of friends to celebrate a wedding and rented 4 rooms. When we booked, the rooms were supposed to be adjacent to each other, but when we checked in - this was no longer the case and they wouldn't be able to accommodate. However, they did gift us a few bottles of bubbly for the...

Ojai Rancho Inn is a cute place to stay for the weekend with friends or family. The rooms are pretty small, but most likely, you're not spending time in the room. There's lots to do in Ojai. Despite being right off the main road in Ojai, the rooms were pretty quiet. There's a bike/walking trail right behind the hotel which...

We recently spent two nights here. Unfortunately, our room was very close to the main thoroughfare and road noise was an issue. Our room was very clean and tidy, however. The small kitchenette counter tops needed some attention and over-all upgrading. Also, some of the bath towels, especially the hand towels and wash cloths had become thin and really needed...
