"Beautiful hotel with views of Santa Barbara"
Just perfect! From the minute we arrived and the last day of our stay we enjoyed everything. The hotel staff was very helpful. We had some amazing dinners and our room was nice and spacious. The pool area was quiet and the water was heated to a perfect temperature. We will come back!

We couldn't get enough of the rooftop area. Bring a bottle of wine and enjoy. Perfect location -- a block away from wonderful shops and restaurants. This was a girls weekend. Looking forward to a return.

"Clean, friendly, affordable, convenient"
Stayed here for 3 night. Friendly and helpful front desk staff, had no check-in or -out problems. Room was very clean and had everything we expected. Shower stall finish was peeling a little. Comfortable beds. Internet connection was there but unreliable--same as any public connection. Good location, halfway between the airport and downtown, several retail business nearby (restaurants, coffee, supermarkets).

"Quiet, Comfortable, and Close to State St."
My husband and I stayed for one night on the way to Cambria for a wedding. The place was quiet and comfortable and a short walk from what we wanted to see. The staff recommended some places we should visit, and we were glad they did. The continental breakfast was nice. My husband was happy that it included lox, bagels, and cream cheese. They also offered fresh baked scones, fresh fruit, and a mix of yogurts and cereals.

Su Nido, All-Suites Boutique Inn

301 N Montgomery St, Ojai - Map
"Very pleasant, comfortable suite with great staff"
This is a terrific, comfortable place to stay in Ojai. It was our first trip there, and the folks at Su Nido helped make it a very nice experience. The room itself is great - very comfortable bed, large bedroom, iHome clock radio, large tub and shower, and a comfortable living room area. There is also a courtyard that we used for a little afternoon snack and champagne. The staff was very friendly, and gave us pointers on places to eat and a great hiking trail. It's in a great location - easily walkable to the "arcade" area and lots of places to eat and shop. We were very pleased that we chose to stay at the Su Nido Inn.

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at the Inn and had a great time. This was our first visit. We found the accommodations to be great.

We could not have asked for a better venue to celebrate. We would visit again. Thank you Ojai Valley Inn and Spa!!

We used every part of the hotel. Wonderful breakfast, lunch right next to the hotel. Fabulous views and the staff could not be better. Really helpful in every way.

We loved our rooms,and there is outdoor seating everywhere so can enjoy the matter where you are in the hotel. Really the best and we have been a lot of places.
