Good location Friendly staff Breakfast was bad and on the last day they didn't really have any breakfast and we were told that the new owners were discontinuing it - of course they never told us when we made the reservation. Room was not nice at all and the bed was bad - hard and uninviting, but clean. My advice...

The room we had was surface clean, but not attention to detail clean. (There was a plastic cup left on the balcony by the previous occupant, for example.) The shower curtain is too long (or the curtain rod is too low, whichever way you want to look at it), so the shower curtain actually sits in the water on the...

We like to stay here when we're looking for something affordable, but fun. It's always been comfortable and clean. We love being able to borrow old videos (yes videos!) and watch old movies. The pool isn't fancy, but it's always nice for a quick dip. They don't have a jacuzzi anymore, but they did have a big swan raft and...

As long as you don't expect the Capri to be a 5-star resort, you will not be disappointed. Cool, kitschy renovated 50's motel with a nice pool, walking distance to town, and fun lobby! Great base for a few days. Spotty wifi, odd bathrooms, but overall lots of fun and great value.

The Capri is definitely an interesting place. It has a cool 60's vibe to it from the outside view. The lobby especially. Very retro feel. The hotel itself is very much boutique. Only like 30 rooms. The room was pretty standard size. Big king size bed. Pretty comfortable. More retro charm...this time from the 80's though...having a VCR and actual...

For what you pay, it's an amazing location. Ojai is full of $$$ that are right on the strip with the shopping and restaurants. This is right on the strip, just steps away from everything. Here is where I agree with the other posters: - the bed is HARSH - it's not super clean - dusty, no hot water in...

Cute boutique hotel, nice pool area with two cabanas. Decent sized rooms with comfortable beds. Most rooms have balconies. The girls at the front desk were very helpful with recommendations on places to go. If you are there on a Sunday morning you must go to the farmers market in town. Everything is locally made and delicious!

Love the Capri concept, but the hotel just didn't deliver. The lobby was cool, the pool area relaxing, but the room just wasn't clean - at all. Suggest a deep clean, lots of scrubbing, and perhaps a new color pallete (lime green clashes with skin tone). The front office was disorganized... So much potential - with no follow through.

I really dug this renovated motel. It's retro chic decor was just right and I did indeed spin some vinyl in my room. The room was very spacious with all the amenities I could need. We had a room with a pet patio that was a large private fenced area a few paces from the pool. We were only here...

Pro's - Overall design was kitschy and adorable. - Great pool area - Close enough to walk downtown (about 15 min to all the bustle) - Record player & VHS was SUCH a unique touch that really made it feel fun. - White bedding! I always prefer white, because it feels cleaner. -Overall, cleanliness was good. - Liked that there...
