Convenient location, clean enough, comfortable enough...but desperately needs updating of facilities, rooms and soft goods/bedding. The room just seemed worn out. Other hotels in the area on the night I stayed were ~$500, so I guess I got what I paid for at ~$350...but a little investment in this property coud turn it into a real gem.

Andrew, hotel front desk clerk, was just awesome. Polite and nice but not too much as to make him seem insincere. Just great, can't say enough about how nice it was to be greeted kindly.

Absolutely beautiful! Our room had lovely Mexican tiles, a stained glass window, and a walk out patio. The pool area and lobby were also beautiful. I wish we'd had a day to just sit on the patio and pool!

The place is unsafe, dirty. The rug, old desk, sofa chair were dirty and smelly. The air conditioner didn't cool down and was noisy. No screen on window to at least get some air. Furniture in bathroom broken, non usable. No chair to sit to work on table in the room. Breakfast was a disgrace. Bed was 4 ft high, super dangerous to get down. Pillows lumpy, smelly and old. I had to get out of there and lost my money. Is a dump. Should be close.

It's clear to see that this charming Inn with tons of character and great bones once had a heyday. Unfortunately whoever is managing it now isn't doing the proper upkeep to keep it even at a professional level. Basics are being ignored like having trash and tipped over garbage cans in the public parking lot so it's the first thing you see you when you drive in. Place has a general feeling of being unkempt with dirt, dust bunnies, and trash strewn in places and swept into corners. I stayed in a spa room that had a semi private terrace. It was clear that that Terrace hadn't been cleaned in years and furniture was disheveled with no cushions and hanging price tags. Strange to leave hanging price tags. There was also a bag of personal belongings in the corner of the patio. Someone is living at the property and clearly taking over common areas which is uncomfortable for guests. The room was tidy but hadn't been dusted or vacuumed. Lots of scuff marks and dirty baseboards. The Public restroom in the lobby was converted into a storage room/personal bathroom for someone. Im not normally so critical but it's such a shame because with just a little bit of love this could be a very charming place. But yet they are still definitely charging market rate prices, with tax, I paid over $400 a night. For that money you have a certain level of expectation.

It's right by Ojai town center, so very close to shopping at cool little boutiques and dining options. Walkable and the area around it is very nice. The hosts were very nice. But the cleaning staff duo and their kids treat that place as their private property and the cleanliness is terrible. Dust everywhere and dingy. When we arrived at 3.04 pm (check-in was at 3) a guy speed reversed and slammed breaks, who later turned out to be one of the cleaning staff. Our room was not ready until 4.30. I developed a dermatitis-type dust-related skin rash after sleeping there. The pool and hot tub were nice until 5ish. BUT then the friends of the kids of the housekeepers arrived (a bunch of teens) and started shouting and playing. The host walked into the pool with her day dress and took a bath/soak which too was a bit wired... The breakfast was 3 tubs of cereal, prepackaged mini donuts (which gave my daughter a tummy ache after eating) and a coffee machine. We saw it while we waited for our room the day before, so we didn't eat there. The breakfast was supposed to be ready by 7, but the guy who was supposed to check us out was still sleeping by 7.30am. I had to call, ring door bell and wake him up to return the keys, causing a delay in our trip.

The property has a lot of character and charm, but it is old and needs updating. I stayed in room 10 and the AC didnt work (wall unit, not central), the jets in the spa tub didnt work and there was dust on the robes they provide. The beds were comfortable and overall its clean, just needs updating. The staff was really nice and checking in was super easy. The breakfast was ok. The pool and jacuzzi were really nice. A little overpriced for a hotel thats not up to date

1) Considerable and unreasonable amount of utilities systems noise at night - I was unable to sleep since there was a lot of loud noise (possibly from spa from adjacent room?) A MAJOR DESIGN FLAW! 2) The room has major smell issues - it smells like mildew and plumbing. 3) The hotel rooms are in severe, deplorable conditions - evidence of major staining on the ceiling from water damage, ‘bath area’ sink that is clogged, faulty door knobs (bathroom door knob was basically hanging on by its last thread), the bed is extremely too high, HARD, and creeks at the slightest movement! Overall, the rooms are border-line uninhabitable! THE WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN. Don’t take my word for it - check it out for yourself.
