We stayed Ojai Rancho Inn for only one night, but enjoyed it very much. We stayed in a room with Jacuzzi and was a big plus.
I know I would like the place a moment I walked in the reception area. It was an old motel converted and upgraded by young creative owners. The whole place was renovated with good design and eco-conscious way. Even patio chairs they have there are seemingly good'ol aluminum chairs but very "cool" upgraded version of patio chair with nice leather.
It felt too hip every once in a while because it was little bit like hipster Brooklyn in a way, but it was nicely done, so I didn't mind it too much.
My room was pretty dark with small windows but it was like a log cabin and I enjoyed it. The hotel is located 5 min bike ride away from downtown Ojai. There is bike path access right out from back yard of the hotel. They have free bike rental and it was a nice perk.
Good size pool with Sauna and a few Grills out if you want to do a bbq. We only did smores but it was fun.
Ojai is pricey place to stay. Don't expect too much even if the motels come with high price tag.More
