Casa Ojai Inn

With spacious rooms, stained wood furniture, and classic California adobe architecture, the Casa Ojai Inn blends the amenities of a full-service hotel with the décor and charm of a rustic bed and breakfast.

The Casa Ojai Inn offers a range of accommodation  options, and most rooms come with full kitchens, spa tubs, and patio access, which is perfect for grilling out in the beautiful southern California sun!


What should you stay here for your Ojai getaway?

In addition to its charm and affordability, the Casa Ojai Inn boasts an enviable location among some of Ojai’s most famous attractions. For those looking to work on their short game, the award-winning Soule Park Golf Course is just steps to the south.

And for something the whole crowd will enjoy, you can’t miss the nearby Ojai Art Center. As California’s oldest multi-purpose nonprofit arts center, the Ojai Art Center has everything to enjoy including visual art, photography, theater, and dance.

Ojai Retreat

A premier southern California bed & breakfast, the Ojai Retreat offers the perfect opportunity to unwind, relax, and – you guessed it – retreat to find your inner peace!

Organic breakfast is offered seven days a week, and the Ojai Retreat also serves as an important locus for many community events, offering guests a unique opportunity to connect with the local community.


What makes this one of the best hotels in Ojai?

The Ojai Retreat facilities offer an unparalleled experience within an already gorgeous area. The Main House and all twelve guest cottages are located on one of the few hilltops in the Ojai Valley, offering some of the most picturesque California views you could imagine.

Although the property has free wireless internet, all cottages come without televisions or telephones, so be prepared to disconnect and retreat (I couldn’t help myself) into the beautiful California wilderness!

Emerald Iguana Inn

Ojai hotels are already famous for the beautiful yet unique designs, but the Emerald Iguana Inn takes my cake when it comes to breathtaking beauty.

The cottages and guest suites are adorned with everything from hand-carved stone to sculptures from local artists. Outside, the Inn seemingly doubles as a lush rainforest as oak, sycamore, pepper, orange, and avocado trees can be found throughout the facility.


What stay here?

Once you get over the incredible beauty, you’ll also realize how incredibly convenient the Emerald Iguana Inn’s location is for everything you could want to do in the Ojai Valley.

The Inn is just a few minutes away from Lake Casitas, which is famous for everything from its birdwatching to fishing opportunities. Find yourself wanting to reconnect, and downtown Ojai – replete with its wonderfully eccentric boutiques – is just a few minutes away!

Su Nido Inn

Spanish for your “Your Nest” (more on the avian theme later), Su Nido Inn is a luxurious cottage-style inn located in the heart of the Ojai Valley.

One of the great things Su Nido Inn does is actively offer packages that allow guests to get involved in the greater Ojai community. Check out their golf packages in collaboration with the Soule Park Golf Course or the Ojai Adventure Package, my personal favorite, which features guided bicycle tours of Ojai!


Here's what you can expect from a stay at Su Nido:

Honoring its name, the Su Nido Inn is a collection of ten cottages, each named for a particular bird (Heron, Condor, and Peacock are some of my favorites!). Though each suite has its own specialized luxury décor, everyone is totally equipped with everything that earns Su Nido its reputation as one of the premier places to stay in Ojai.

Each suite comes with a private fireplace, kitchen, and – my personal all-time favorite – Molton Brown products, meaning you and yours will never want to fly from the coop!

Ojai Valley Inn & Spa

Appropriately located on Country Club Road, the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa is truly the Rolls-Royce of Ojai living. Conde Nast Traveler included the Valley Inn on its 2015 Top 100 Hotels in the World list, and with first-class facilities located among over 200 acres of oak tree-lined acres, it’s not hard to see why!


Looking for an unforgettable Ojai vacation? 

As you might expect from a hotel with this resume, the accommodations and facilities here are absolutely wondrous. If you can swing it, check into one of the 1,500 square foot spa penthouses that pair sweeping Ojai Valley views with in-room spa services.

No matter where your bed is, though, all guests will enjoy an unforgettable experience – when a hotel dedicates 31,000 square feet alone to its Spa Village, Artist Cottage, and Apothecary, you know you’re in for a treat!
