Formerly a 1950’s retro roadside motel, the Ojai Rancho Inn, a no-frills but character-filled option in town. The guest rooms each have their own front porch, log cabin-style interiors, and the design brings together artwork and furnishings by area artists with a quirky, throwback vibe. There’s a stable of bikes to ride into town (which is maybe ten minutes, tops), BBQ grills, and a fire pit that encourages communal hangs. Chief’s Peak, right next to the swimming pool, is a cozy little bar that has a good selection of wines and craft beers.
