“Loved loved loved Ojai Rancho Inn!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Super cute southwest style room. The room made us feel like we were on a destination vacation, but just passing through. Therese at the front desk was so helpful and sweet. She helped us get situated, recommended restaurants and lent us bikes. A nice break from the hotel chains. This place is a gem!

What a fun little hotel! A perfect spot to unwind after a day of hiking in surrounding Ojai. The rooms were quiet and had a great outdoorsy vibe. We had a room with a bath and it was awesome! The pool and deck were relaxing and nice. Behind the hotel there is a path that leads you to downtown Ojai.
Ask front desk for their list of hikes. I would have been lost without it.

We found a last minute deal and for $85+tax it was a pretty good deal. The rooms are nice and comfortable, the rooms are comfortable and the pool and sauna are added benefit. Much of the other guests seem to be rather 'hip' but thats not a major problem. would easily recommend.

My husband and I stayed in the very back room (I think # 19???) for one night. The room was very spacious and had an entrance to the pool area from the bathroom (great if it was warm enough to enjoy the pool, but it was January). Anyways, the place is fun - it came equipped with a fireplace (that acted as your thermostat), the best bed we slept in by far (3 nights, 3 hotels) and there were just lots of little details we enjoyed. Example - the room had a record player and some records - we'd never really had the luxury of playing with record players, so we thought this was fun, and novel. We chose to just stay in, watch movies and relax because we loved the room that much. It's simple, but charming - we would definitely recommend this place to friends!

I had a little problem with the shower - but it appeared to just be me - but the owner was extremely responsive.

We stayed one night at the Ojai Rancho Inn as part of a vacation in and around Ventura County.. We also stayed in room 14, and didn't experience the agitating noise noted by another reviewer. Our room was on the small side and very dark, with nowhere to sit except on the bed. There were two side chairs at a ledge that served as a work area but if anyone was sitting in them another person couldn't walk past because it was so close to the end of the bed. The room was dark due to the paneling and wood beamed ceiling, and lighting in the room were very dim. In our room, the bathroom was very small and it was impossible for two people to be in there at the same time.

On the plus side our room was very clean and everything was working properly.

The Inn offers free bikes for the use of guests and has a pool area with a security gate that includes the pool, a fire pit, shuffleboard and a grassy area. The location is about half a mile from the Arcade in the downtown area.

This place has a great design scheme, but just be clear, it's a motel on the side of a noisy road with a lot of traffic. I was expecting more ranch at the Rancho Inn. The room I paid for had a plumber taking apart the bathroom when I checked in. I asked for a room farther from the road and it was the lower price one but they wouldn't refund the difference. And my room (14) had an agitating noise as if there was an agitating mashing machine next to the wall. Linens had spots on them. One of the front desk attendees knew nothing about Ojai and explained that is because she is from Ventura. It's a hipster place and yes I liked the big log beds, but I wish I had stayed at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa up the road. Also no bar, restaurant or room service, only coffee and tea by Office.

Room Tip: Ask for a room far from the road because I don't know how anyone can sleep so close to the cars.
