Located just behind the main shopping area, this is a very convenient location. Easy walking to shops, restaurants and the park. The grounds are lovely and the rooms is cozy, ours had a balcony that overlooked the garden which was a lovely place to sit and have morning coffee or evening glass of wine.

Had the most serene time at the Lavender Inn--one of my favorite places in the world. It is in the middle of town, but a world away with gardens everywhere and charm, charm, charm. Vanessa took great care of us and cooked the most amazing breakfasts and appetizers for our happy hours. Recommend highly!

We have a Girls' Getaway and this marked the 9th annual and the 8th time to the Lavender Inn. We get such great service from the innkeepers. Mary Elizabeth was there when I checked in and made the process so easy. Venessa took over for the next mornings' breakfast and happy hour appetizer, the food was delicious and her service...

I discovered this adorable B&B about 10 years ago and we come back at least once a year. Ojai is so cute and so easy to get to. Lavender Inn is the absolute best location in town. The house is adorable and off of the main boulevard. We walk to everything. The backyard is charming and the rooms are too....

My friend had stayed here a number of times, but I always thought she was overselling it when she described how lovely the place was. Lavender Inn was well deserving of the hyperbole. I also loved the fact that each room had its own deck or balcony. My priority was food and each morning the breakfast was delicious and plentiful....

I'll be honest, I'm picky when it comes to B&Bs. Lavender Inn exceeded my expectations. It's the perfect getaway for "princess and the pea" sleepers like me. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable (without being too friendly or pushy), the morning breakfast is a delicious homemade spread served at a relaxing time, and the rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and quiet....

My husband and I spent 3 days at the Lavender Inn for his birthday. We will definitely stay here again when we return. The breakfasts were delicious, with enough variety to cover all morning eating habits (well ... no meat for the carnivores among us). Our room and bed were very comfortable. We had a balcony that looked over the...

Hi Nancy! Thank you for your review! Our breakfasts are amazing, but you are right...we've gone so healthy (while delicious) and cater to so many diets (gluten-free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan) that we've forgotten carnivores. We just started adding back a variety of specialty chicken sausages on the weekends. Your comment reminded me that we don't want to forget...

This review is long overdue; my apologies to all of the wonderful staff at Lavender Inn and Mister the cat. Lavender Inn is a beautiful, quaint bed and breakfast right in the middle of downtown Ojai. We had our wedding there in October and rented out the entire Inn for our family and friends. From the moment we checked in...

We had a fabulous weekend in Ojai thanks mostly to the Lavender Inn! It was the perfect getaway from San Diego. We arrived at check in time and were immediately escorted to our room. Room #2 was perfect for us, as my main requests for a room were a king size bed and a private bathroom. We had previously booked...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blending comfort with elegance, the Lavender Inn is conveniently located across from shops, galleries, and restaurants. Originally built in 1874, this Bed & Breakfast offers a ROMANTIC GETAWAGIRLS NIGHT OUT AT THE INN, intimate business workshops, family reunions, or a QUIET RETREAT. The gardens are absolutely stunning with mature oaks, 7 fountains, a petite waterfall into a petite pond, and colorful flowers for our GARDEN WEDDINGS. The interior is tastefully decorated with an array of art and antiques but with a subtle modern twist. Full, GOURMET BREAKFASTS and housemade TAPAS & WINE are served daily on the veranda. Put on one of our lush robes and wander out the front steps for a facial or massage in our LAVENDER INN SPA. Look for our COOKING CLASSES in our kitchen, Ojai Culinary School, with visiting chefs. We are proud to have created a 3 day CANCER WELLNESS RETREAT, InnCourage, free to underserved women undergoing treatment for cancer - a full time on-site counselor, massages, facials, healthy cooking class, American Cancer Society Look Good Feel Better make-up & wigs, and support from fellow cancer patients.
