A hint of hipster style in a laidback Ojai hotel.
If we were to judge this hotel solely by its looks, we would guess that it is located in Palm Springs. It has a stylish retro vibe (not common in the country-chic Ojai Valley), from its pool area with private stone-paved cabanas to its lobby that feels more like a midcentury living room with its sleek white furnishings. Bedrooms come in a variety of styles, including a business suite, family suite and pet-friendly rooms. All are simply but playfully decorated, and have 42-inch plasma-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, DVD players with a wide selection of DVDs, iPod docking stations, microwaves, fridges and adjustable rainfall showerheads. Deluxe rooms add private balconies or patios. Featuring terrific views of the Topa Topa Mountains, the hotel is just a short walk to downtown Ojai’s dining, art galleries and wine tasting rooms.
