Belmond El Encanto

"A haven of luxury, peace and comfort"
We had an Arts and Crafts bungalow - beautiful. The amenities in the room were perfect. Every little detail is just so. The grounds are amazingly beautiful and the salt-water pool is extraordinarily relaxing. We only spent one night at the El Encanto and regret we did not book for a longer stay... Our hope is that we go back soon....

"This was a very peaceful, pleasant environment."
The staff was very nice and hospitable. We felt welcome and comfortable. The accommodations were so beautiful and clean. The breakfast was wonderful. They had homemade scones that were to die for and a delicious quiche on one of the mornings. The location is great, just a few blocks form State Street. I would definitely recommend this place and even return.

"Charming Friendly Hotel"
This hotel gives one such a personal stay, unlike very large hotels. They overbooked, so we were upgraded - to their Apartment!! Every time we needed anything, the friendly staff was there to meet our requirements. They have recently renovated, and everything was top drawer. Wish we could have stayed a week. My friend is fighting cancer; this overnight stay afforded her so much pleasure.

"Quiet beautiful place"
The hotel is beautiful and well kept. The room was updated but had many unique aspects to it. I loved the court yard and the off steet parking. It's located within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and morning coffee shops. We drove over to Santa Barbara a few days. Which is only 45 min. along a winding mountain road. Fun to drive and great scenery. Perfect place to stay if you want that small mountain town. Hiking trails, tennis, winerys, and horse back riding.

"A surprise out of a wonderfull valley"
We were 1st time tourists to California with 2 kids 7 & 9 and never heard of Ojai before. We tried to get an hotel in Santan Barbara but it was too expansive or simply unavailable. Ojai was a wonderful surprise. A green valley that pikes out of the LA desert area, with oranges and olives groves, bathed in an old Spanish/Italian architecture. Ojai Inn is not a "wow" hotel when you see it the first time, but the spacious interior, the pool, the free breakfast and the free cookies will get you. On top of all, the hotel is located on the quietest main road we have seen from our stay in California. Go for it.
