We arrived shortly before the front desk closed for the night, so they called to make sure we were actually keeping our reservation. Unfortunately we had to leave early the next morning and weren't able to stay and enjoy the surroundings. We loved the historic ambiance and piano music. The room was quaint; the bathroom huge. It had a once-functioning...

We had 4 rooms. 101, 206, 208 and 308. 308 was a show stopper, we partied there till the wee hours while the lobby had quiet groups of Ghost Busters awaiting the spectral visitation. Santa Paula is a beautiful old town, awesome architecture and gorgeous scenery. I highly recommend you visit. Their breakfast was free and plentiful. Staff we considerate...

First and foremost, what made me appreciate this stay at the Glen Tavern Inn is that they allowed for pets. While not listed on the site, the fee is nominal at $10 per night which is cheaper than any overnight boarding for pets. With that said, I have to also give kudos to Dustin who waived the pet fee for...

We spent the day in Ojai, and Santa Paula is a short ride away. Since we hadn't found anything reasonably priced available in Ojai, this seemed perfect. It was okay. The Glen Tavern Inn is an Historic Landmark so I believe they can only do a certain amount of updating. So there is no elevator. Not a big problem, but...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Glen tavern Inn. Ojai is a very beautiful city not to far from our location with a picturesque mountain drive. We hope you choose to stay with us again. Santa Paula also offers some great hiking spots as well as a few museum within walking distance of the Inn.

Everything was perfect-from the staff, the room, the restaurant, to the atmosphere, and the price, everything was just perfect for me. I felt like I was home. Like somehow I belonged there amongst the old film memorabilia and long lost memories. I cannot wait to go back.

It's okay for the price. I paid about $90 for the room and am happy I didn't pay more. Some positives: front desk staff was friendly; large room; pretty lobby; meal at Enzo's was good. Negatives: the sheets and towels were threadbare; room door only had one lock and no extra deadbolt that is just locked from the inside; extra...

This place may once have been lovely but now it is well past its prime. The entry is dark, the furniture is old, the paint is peeling, the rooms are tiny. Hard to say when the toilet bowl was last cleaned but it wasn't recently. The sheets may have been nice when they were new- maybe a decade ago? When...

I am sorry to hear that your stay at the Inn was not satisfactory. It is correct that the Inn offers a continental breakfast served only on Saturday and Sunday mornings; the Italian restaurant only severs dinner. We do appreciate that you chose to stay at our Inn and hope that you may try our Inn/restaurant another time.

We had a great stay here. Our room had a few problems, but they were fixed as soon as we notified the staff. We had drinks and a great dinner in the restaurant, then took a glass of wine to our room. We had a heart-shaped tub that we did not make use of, but it was cute! Our bed...

Lumpy beds, nightstands covered in dust, scratchy towels with holes in them, sheets that didn't fit the bed, stained lobby furniture, and a manager who couldn't be more snippy and rude - what else could one want in a hotel..if they might have lived in a tent before or something? The attached restaurant was a disappointment too. If it weren't...

We lucked out and got the classic haunted room (307 – booked months in advance!). Can’t say that we had a truly haunted experience, but that is common with these ‘haunted’ rooms. They just might happen - maybe, maybe not…not like there is a guarantee with the room booking or anything! The true cool part is that this has the...
