Ojai is a glorious place to get away for a weekend, my husband and I have had some pretty romantic getaways up the coast CLICK HERE to read my article about just one of my weekends as part of ETG’s ongoing California Coast series. You can find “Romance & Adventure in Napa” in the Stories Section: We Love LA Page; Weekend Getaways drop-down.


The Capri Hotel is the perfect place to sneak away to if you are an LA local or are visiting Los Angeles or Santa Barbara area….or heading up to Napa. The mid-century modern hotel features thirty rooms and is located within walking distance to historic downtown Ojai. It was built in 1963 and is surrounded by the beautiful Topa Topa Mountains. I love the location – it’s a great location to access local restaurants and shopping.

Never Stayed in a Room I Didn’t Like

Offering a range of rooms, such as a two-queen deluxe with a patio, a two-king deluxe with a patio, a jacuzzi room, a family suite with a second attached room for the kids (complete with bunk beds) and a two bed suite which offers two separate rooms.

My husband and I have really never stayed in a room that we did not like. Many of the rooms come with views as well as additional amenities – refrigerators, microwaves, 42″ flat screen televisions with cable, air-conditioning and wi-fi. We always ask for a view…so don’t forget to mention it when you reserve the room. 

On site, enjoy the beautiful surrounding grounds with a garden area or take advantage of the pool.  The hotel also accommodates animals and guests with disabilities. Yes I bring my baby tootsie all the time.
