Love the Lavender Inn!!!! Location, location location!!!!! You are walking distance to everything, in this quaint, darling town.

Come for the Yoga Crib every year, and this place is the best. The staff goes out of their way to make you comfortable. It is like a home away from home.

You will LUV staying here!!!!! Yogina Ca

Enjoyed my two night stay. A warm and welcoming enviornment. Enjoyed the close proximity to good restaurants and fun shops to check out in downtown Ojai, all walking distance. Loved the wine and cheese and breakfast at the Lavender Inn. My room, the Topa room was pricey and it was noisey at night....with cars driving by and people walking and talking. Next time, I would choose a room towards the back of the house away from the main street.

My wife and I just spent a night at The Lavender Inn (Lavender Room) while on a short vacation. Exceeded expectations in every way. Comfortable, well-designed and furnished rooms (we got to peek in all of them and you can't go wrong). Excellent grounds with plenty of private space if desired. Plenty of parking. Quiet but central location, walk to everything. Great breakfast emphasizing its California location (fresh fruit, fritata, pastry, healthy alternatives). Afternoon wine and cheese. We will return for more than just one night!

Ojai is great, staged perhaps, therefore not true to the bone, but very well and soberly staged, so it is very pleasant to spend time there.
Now, if you want a taste of the REAL DEAL, the true Ojai experience is staying at the Lavender Inn.
It is not pretentious (like "art", you know), nor corporate (God forbid), and is perfectly located where you want to be to visit the town on foot.
Common area like garden and downstairs living/dining room are very nice, and rooms simple and tasteful, a GREAT VALUE.

The best garden in Ojai, a lovely quaint bed and breakfast with a wonderful breakfast and all the liberty to enjoy their facilities.
Warm inn keepers ready to help and an excellent spot, with a wonderful deli store across the street.
Would go again with no doubts at all.

I loved my stay at the Lavender Inn. It was in the center of town which is great- but it felt like it's own little oasis. The garden and patio are so relaxing and sun and shade drenched. The 5 'o-clock wine and cheese was great and breakfast was varied and delcious. I felt so well taken care of. Our room was beautiful and clean- and the deck with chairs was so fun.
I only have praise for this B+B!

We stayed in the "Lavender" room for one night. The room is beautiful and has a balcony overlooking the gardens. The breakfast in the morning was indeed gourmet and it was nice to meet the other guests. We found the whole experience to be just what we wanted - relaxing. The innkeepers were so helpful and kind. If you are looking for a memorable place to relax, this is it.
