An experience worth laughing about, but I cry when I think I paid $125 for the night! It was July 4th weekend... most expensive time to stay in a hotel. This was the ONLY place in town with availability (now I know why!). Once inside our room, we were greeted with an overwhelming smell of smoke! Could it be from the fresh cigarette floating in our toilet? Gross. The bathroom had spiders and dead flies in all corners. The floors were insanely dirty! 30 seconds of walking barefoot on the carpet and your feet were black! It was just an absolutely disgusting feeling being there! Our shower was broken, only one temperature available. Luckily I had a tool set in my truck, I rigged the shower to fit our desired temperature. There was a hold in the drywall ceiling above the shower and it was surrounded by black mold. Our screen door to the patio was broken and one chair was missing. There were Corona bottle caps on the patio and it looked like it hadn't been swept in weeks. There was a folded up towel behind the headboard to keep it from banging' on the wall (probably during the previous occupant's ----). The sheets on the rock hard beds had hair and dried blood (or ketchup) on them. The only thing good about this place was the A/C cooled the room down really quickly. We're going through battles to try and get a refund as I write this. Don't make the same mistake we (and everyone else who stayed here) made. If there is no availability anywhere else in Ojai... sleep in your car instead!
