Last Monday I drove down to visit a good friend in Ojai, CA. Sheri and Kevin had recently moved there and I wanted to visit her and see their new place. Ojai is a quaint little town about 2 hours South of where we live.
Once I got to Sheri’s place (made one wrong turn and started to drive into the mountains) she mentioned that her brother and sister-in-law and her mother and husband were all planning on visiting her & Kevin for Christmas. Since there was no room for both couples at her place she asked me if I would like to drive by a couple of inns in town. Of course I said YES! She was planning on just driving by the inns but I told her that we should stop and ask to see a couple of the rooms. She was surprised that we could do this. I proceeded to tell her that my husband and I did this all the time.
We looked at four inns but one stood out above the rest. It is called Su Nido Inn. It is walking distance to art galleries, Libbey Bowl/Park, book stores, shopping and fine dining. They have nine one and two bedrooms beautifully decorated in the Mission Revival décor. There are fireplaces, soaking tubs, small kitchen and patios, King Beds, AC, hi-speed internet, LCD TV, and complimentary snacks. The entrance to all the rooms is through a beautiful courtyard.
The receptionist, Sherri, was friendly and very informative about the inn and Ojai. Since it was an early Monday afternoon and quite, she showed us seven of the nine rooms. They are all decorated differently and beautifully appointed. The rooms range in price from $159 to $489. Prices vary depending on whether or not it is on the weekend or weekday and if you are getting a one or 2 bedroom. Weekends, of course, is a little higher.
Here is the breakdown on staying at the inn for one night. I choose to stay Sunday night in the Quail Room for $159.
Quail Room $159.00
Room Tax 10% 15.90
Weekend expense: You saved $260.00 – 174.90 = $85.10
You have $85.10 for dinner! Please note there is a cancellation policy and breakfast is not served at the inn.
If you are looking for a quite romantic getaway you and your spouse may want to stay at the Su Nido Inn. I am thinking about surprising my husband with reservations there. Check out their website: www.SuNidoInn.com.
Keep those sparks flying!
