There's a nice relaxed feel here at the Capri. The lobby is mini Palm Springs cool, and the pool area stylishly atmospheric with curtained cabana lounges and lots of palm trees. Our room was small and clean, with bright lime walls and fun touches like a little metal lunchbox for the toiletries. Nice to have a mini fridge, but reeeeally nice to have a patio. Room 109 is a double queen with a flagstone patio which opens out to a really large fenced in green space that was heaven for my little dog. They're really dog friendly here.
Although the patio gate had a latch, we didn't feel comfortable sleeping with the room's sliding door open, so we locked up and used the AC. I don't like sleeping with AC anywhere, and this old fashioned wall mount was hard to regulate, I alternated between feeling too hot or too cold a lot of the night. Also the walls are thin, we shared an adjoining door with the room next door and when they started having really loud sex, it was like we were right there in bed with them. Imitating them was a really great way to get them to quiet down. Just a little friendly call and response action.
This is a re-done motel, not a fancy hotel. I agree they could have done a more meticulous job in redoing things, paint detail, finish work, new windows, etc...But we had a nice stay. I dealt with Christopher on the phone and in person, he's not warm and fuzzy, but he's to the point and helpful.
The Capri was fun and different for Ojai. Plus it has the most awesome sign out front!
We'll be back.
