Hummingbird Inn of Ojai

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great private patio and lovely room! Would be nice if they offered breakfast, instead of just coffee! Longer walk to shops in town than expected but overall very satisfied!!

It is a very nice hotel! Great location outside of town!

Hotel was easy to find at the end of town (not a big town). Staff was friendly. Accomadations were good, beds were comfy-soft - but; wooden floors were cold & creeky, having the sink in the room seperate from bathroom/shower was not to my liking. In room coffee was instant itsy-pack, single cup :-( Only one desk chair in the room, so sitting on bed to view TV was the only option. Hotel provides Breakfast, but it is very sparse: perked coffee, canned juice, fresh strawberries, apples & oranges, but no toast or rolls, instead the provision was power bars toaster pop up things and oatmeal! Thats it! No Hot water in rooms due to some kind on repairs being done. At one point the water was completely shut off for hours without notification to guest. Lastly, our booking agent and hotel both charged us seperately for the same hotel room. When we checked out we were late so we did not review the bill and called on 11/09/13 we called the hotel, left a voice mail on there recorder and have not heard a word??? Therefore, not happy!!!!

Only stayed one night but favorably impressed! Clean, updated fixtures, well located. They even gave me a bottle of wine for my birthday!

For a one night stay the hotel was satisfactory. I appreciated the size of the room and the quiet location. The bed was just ok, the comforter had a big stain in the center of it, and the bathtub was too small to even bother with. Staff was helpful when the tv remote didn't function and supplied me with a new one.

Love how updated and modern this hotel is! Wonderful hard wood floors, comfy beds and large flat screen tv. The rooms are spacious so you dont feel closed in. The bathrooms are nice and good water pressure in the shower. They have an awesome free breakfast with cereal, coffee, tea, fruit and even waffles. It is worth it to wake up early. The one thing I didn't like was the wifi. They did not tell us the password when we got there and we had to go downstairs to get it. When we entered it we only had acess for a few minutes and then it stopped working. But other than that it was a great hotel!

Great location. Clean and nicely decorated rooms. AC system can be improved.

Apparently Hummingbird has been renovated recently in an attractive way. I'd never there before, but signs of the older version still exist. Physically there is some fine tuning necessary, but the place is quite nice for the money. Staff is friendly. Though not quite ready on time, the continental breakfast was fine. All you want freshly-squeezed orange juice (squeeze it yourself) from tree-ripened Valencias is to die for. (Full disclosure: I own an orange orchard just two miles from the motel) We'd stay there again.

Hotel is great, accept if you go over a weekend bring your own towels. On Sat. we didnt get clean towels in the room until 5:00 PM

The location was good, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the breakfast offered a lot of choices and the staff was friendly and helpful. Good value for money. I would certainly recommend it.

Everything was good except a little bit of street noise.

Pleasant stay, cheery atmosphere. First room had some issues, but we were moved quickly to one that was more pleasant and where the AC was working.

This hotel is in a great location. I have no complaints for the price I paid

The staff is friendly and the grounds were very clean. Parking was great. Enjoyed the free continental breakfast that included good coffee, freshly made waffles, cereals, milk, fresh squeezed orange juice, bagels and fresh breads for toasting. Room was adequate but wished the ipod radio was working. My husband and I would stay there again. We went to a home brew beer festival and chose the motel due to the free shuttle service to the venue at Lake Casitas. Worked out perfectly.

We stayed in this hotel for a day, we had a pleasant experience here, room was clean, bed is comfy, flat screen tv, safety box, pool- dunno if its heated tho. Cable TV internet and more.. breakfast a lot to choose from.. nice ambience, the outside looks a little dated but when u go in the rooms its much different, but the bathtubs needs some update but livable, it costs a little bit more but u get what u paid for and its worth it

It's everything you expect in a room. It's nice, clean and spacious. The best part is the bed. The king size is extremely comfortable.

Well, we had reservations at the Hummingbird hotel and when we arrived, they said we had cancelled our reservation. They told us we could stay at the Capri hotel because they had openings. We were not happy. It was funny because Christopher at the Capri told us he always keeps a few rooms empty. Funny, but I think they got more money for our room at the Hummingbird and then put us up at the Capri. It was very disappointing that both pools at the Capri and Hummingbird were closed by the Health Department. I was looking forward to using the pool because I had been through a lumpectomy and radiation and just wanted to wear a bathing suit and swin because finally my breasts were looking normal. The Capri is not our style of hotel and I felt the room was just O.K. No comfortable chairs to sit in. The room faced the street.

Beautiful location, friendly staff, clean and pleasant. The guest lounge is nice. Good for the price.

I've just returned from my third overnight trip to Ojai. The Hummingbird is the third place I've stayed at and I think it is a great place to spend the night. In fact, it will be my first choice when I plan to stay economically. My room was very clean, quiet, and met all of my needs and expectations. Mary

Comfortable room near everything in Ojai at a very reasonable price. We really enjoyed our stay.

once a roadside motel, now leaning toward a budget boutique.
