Welcome to the Hummingbird Inn of Ojai, California ,awarded THREE DIAMOND hotel accommodations by AAA. The Ojai Mountain Valley is one of Southern California's truly wonderful tourist destinations. Fifteen miles northeast from Ventura's excellent beaches, just eighty miles north of Los Angeles, with Santa Barbara just twenty-five miles over a spectacular mountain highway pass, Ojai is at once remote and readily accessible. Tucked into the Los Padres National Forest wilderness, between beautiful Lake Casitas and the 4500 to 5000 feet Topa Topa (multi-colored) Mountains, this pristine area and friendly little town of under 10,000 was the site for Shangri-La in the 1937 film "Lost Horizon" based on the novel by James Hilton, starring Ronald Coleman and directed by Frank Capra. Relaxation and enjoyment are key to our spacious grounds, lawns, and gardens. The heated pool, spa, and sundeck lounging area are completely enclosed for your safety and privacy. Enjoy a complimentary breakfast each morning, and our tea, coffee and hot chocolate each afternoon and evening.Our expansive front yard includes a pine log bench swing, and comfortable chair and table sets. We strive to create the ideal atmosphere for shedding yesterday's concerns, feeling comfortable, and getting downright lazy.....Always the mountains and hummingbirds are right there for our guests to reach out and touch with their eyes and souls. Chief Peak Mountain forms a massive postcard view from just about anywhere on the property, and our dozens of multi-colored, high-spirited little nectar drinkers don't seem to mind a bit how close you get.Soule Park Public PGA Golf Course is directly across the street. There are public tennis courts all through Ojai. Restaurants, shopping, museums, art and pottery galleries, parks, Ojai's quaint and festive downtown area, are all within a three to eight block walking distance.
