We stayed in the Treehouse Room for a couples getaway over a long, three day weekend. The room and inn are special, but there were some hiccups to our stay. First thing was an ant infestation in the bathroom. Hundred of ants came crawling out of the bathroom sink as soon as we turned on the water. The staff sprinkled... More

Hotel arranged in room massages for all of us which were great and reasonably priced especially compared to other hotel spa vacation sites I had checked for the same time... More

I greatly enjoyed our three-night stay at the Emerald Iguana. The weather unfortunately was cold - lows in the 20s - so we didn't get to enjoy our sunny private patio or the pool area, but the room was cozy with its thermostat-regulated gas fireplace. We had the Feather Room, which was spacious, with a little kitchenette (fridge, microwave, sink)... More

We spent three nights at the Inn at the end of December. We took the same large accommodation, as it had a spacious livingroom & long table which was perfect for hosting three other couples. The Inn provided additional dinnerware etc., as the kitchen in our space is typically stocked for two people. We did have some minor problems involving... More

My wife and I celebrated our 27th anniversary and her birthday all on the same weekend. I chose this Inn as a recommendation from another couple. The Tadpole room was clean, quiet and quaint. There was a small outside sitting area on the porch that was very nice to sit and have a drink. We had a massage and a... More

Came up and stayed here for a spa weekend with 2 girlfriends. The cost is a fraction of what you would pay at Ojai Valley Inn and Spa and the accommodations are lovely and sweet. It is tucked away at the top of the street in a residential area. Great, unique rooms and beautiful grounds. This is an "adults only"... More

We stayed a year ago at the Blue Iguana last year. This year we tried the Emerald Iguana. It was a great choice. It is very comfortable with a great staff and great clienteles. We met people around the hot tub or for breakfast and struck up friendships. We will return!

They came to our room and it was the most amazing massage ever ! No kids and we were away from our own celebrating our anniversary so it was... More
