This was a last-minute option when a B&B my sister suggested has only a shared bath available. Not a terrible inconvenience but my wife didnt want to spread her germs with another guest.
The Capri is off Hwy 150 on the outskirts of Ojai, so not within walking distance of the sights.
Our room has a faintly sweet medicinal odor but fortunately is not overwhelming. In-room coffee is minimalist--instant, no coffee maker. The bathroom sink needs unclogging, but the shower worked well. Don't expect to take a bath unless you travel with a drain plug.
The "breakfast" offerings are laughable--power bars and pop tarts, but fresh (?) fruit I guess and decent coffee in the lobby.
The TV set up is positively medieval--one control to turn on the set and the other to change channels up or down one at a time. Get Direct TV for crying out loud.
Also if you ask to have a boarding pass printed, the manager suggested going to a place in town instead of offering to do it for guests.
