The Capri is a great modern retro hotel! We stayed in a patio double queen room that was beautiful and comfortable. Christopher was great! Friendly place and even has continental breakfast! Glad we chose this one.

Yes, The Capri has had a massive make-over. Very sleek and fun lobby, great mood lighting, crisp white linens THAT ARE ON A MATTRESS FROM THE '50's!!! Everything else, and I mean everything else was great. Clean rooms, great decor but the bed was painful. I hope they change them out, nothing fancy like Dux or anything, just not the old blue and white striped one's from days gone by.

So here's the deal. My wife books us into the Capri for a couple of nights and cites 30-something excellent reviews herewith. I went back and read another dozen or so reviews that were disparaging to say the least. The protagonists in many of these were an allegedly rude owner/manager named Christopher and some goth chick named Desiree.
WIth thoughts of "this vacation has screwed written all over it," we pull into the nondescript parking lot, I've already got these horrible preconceived notions about the place and its proprietors.
Here's the reality of the situation: Disregard all previous contemptuous reviews found here. Christopher is a professional with tons of advice. He's just not a chatterbox. No crime in that. Desiree is scattered, but kind of like those two techno chicks on Criminal Minds and NCIS. Smart as a tack. Both know the area well (Desiree recommended Azu for dinner -- excellent paella -- and Christopher suggested the Deer Lodge -- excellent trout relleno).
As for the hotel itself, it's kitschy, cute, clean and comfortable.
A round of golf across the street is casual, fun and almost free. Santa Barbara is 45 minutes away. Bottom line: Good food, good entertainment, great lodging and a very relaxing stay. Thanks Christopher and Desiree! We'll be back for sure.

We decided to drive up the coast from Santa Monica before heading inland to the Sierras. We were surprised how few places there were to stay north of Santa Monica, and were quite relieved when we came into Ojai and saw a number of motels. The Capri was great - good value, with excellent facilities, and in a very pleasant location. We could walk to restaurants. Breakfast was good, as well. The town is worth exploring - and we just loved the (long) drive through the coastal mountains, the Los Padres National Forest - amazing landscapes.

I would like to give my opinion about our recent trip to Ojai, Ca. As a customer service rep in multiple fields for many years, I know great service when I see it. For starters, our vacation began with a call to a hotel in Oakview, the manager was rude and uninviting. So we drove to Ojai and inquired at the Capri, we were warmly greeting by Christopher in the charming lobby, with great artwork done by a local artist, he gave us the family room for four nights, for a very agreeable rate. The grounds were beautiful and relaxing. That night I went to the lobby to get a few snacks, and had a great conversation with Deseriee, she was just as nice and helpful as Christopher. So needless to stay after our bad run in with the first motel, we ended up having a great vacation thanks to all the staff at the Capri, I as a professional customer service representative, highly recommend staying at this establishment. You guys are awesome keep up the good work, we will be back to stay with you again. Thank you for a wonderful stay. P.S. You gotta check out the nighttime lighting.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with family, ask for the family suite.
