First time at this property, and it did not disappoint! We stayed in the Peacock Suite (no idea why it has this name) which was great. Favorite feature of this room - real wood-burning fireplace in main room. Breakfast every morning was fresh and tasty; jacuzzi was nice and hot; grounds were well-kept and serene. What's not to like? It's... More

My husband found this inn online for my birthday weekend and he did a great job. The inn is lovely and the grounds lush with trees and beautiful plants. We had a nice room with a kitchenette, fireplace and patio where we enjoyed our complimentary continental breakfast. We even had a visiting, friendly cat to welcome us each day we... More

We recently stayed a The Emerald Iguana Inn in Ojai and could not have been more pleased. The staff is most accommodating and welcoming. The layout of the Inn is very relaxing and the hospitality perfect for "getting away". The "continental" breakfast is more than adequate and the wine and bits in the afternoon are a nice welcome back after... More

We have been staying here since 2005. It's perfect for us. Quiet (no little kids), gorgeously decorated and beautifully architected suites, a pool and hot tub, stunning plants, trees and flowers, and very romantic. It is a true Oasis. The people who manage the Emerald, from the owner, to the team manning the office, to the ladies who keep the... More

Our three nights at the Emerald Iguana really couldn't have gone better. We heard about the place through some friends, and everything they said was right on the money. Lovely grounds. A comfy, well-appointed room that really showed some thought, care and imagination (ours had a kitchen with everything we needed). A friendly, helpful staff. Quiet, restful and relaxing with...

I was visiting Ojai with my girlfriend and decided to stay the night. We really lucked out because everything in town was pretty much booked. When we contacted the Emerald Iguana Inn a cancelation just came through so we took the room. I was both our first time here so we had no idea what to expect. The lady who... More

The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Everything is extremely clean and the staff is very nice. The decor in the rooms and around the grounds is artistic, cheeky, and exotic. Very fun! I have stayed here about 5 times and always feel safe and like I am visiting a friends home. There is no shortage of ambiance at the Emerald Iguana.... More

Our 1st time here and we would highly recommend it. Most of the staff were very accommodating and we really liked the peace and quiet yet we were close enough to town to walk every day. The amenities could be improved a little, for example, we would have liked plates and silverware stocked in the kitchen. The snacks and drinks... More
