We are so pleased to fine such a jewel in Ojai. The property was suggested to us by the Ojai visitors center. It was like being in Costa Rica, a brief rain in the morning made the birds come alive. We will be back.

We have stayed at The Emerald Iaguana several times, and always look forward to being back. The location is perfect for walking to the downtown area, and for enjoying the beautiful, peaceful, neighborhood. Everyone is friendly and helpful and the rooms and cottages are charming, comfortable, and very private. It's the perfect short getaway for us without having to travel... More

I just came back from a sisters reunion celebrated at the Iguana and can't say enough about the comfort and peace we enjoyed. I can't wait to bring my husband there for a romantic weekend! It was such a break in our routine, like going to Mexico or Hawaii without having to get on a plane first. It felt private... More

This neighborhood gem was such a wonderful place to stay. So many details all around you. The private and secluded cottage was amazing--so many details. You can tell the owners takes so much pride in their place and ensures all guests are taken care of. I would highly recommend staying here and I can't wait to return. Thanks!

We have just returned from the Emerald Iguana Inn and while I hesitated because of the unusual name of the property, I am thrilled to have a place to escape to from time to time. The property is quiet, the staff extremely accommodating, and the overall stay heavenly. Also provided, was a continental breakfast which was thoughtfully set-up and a... More

Two nights at the Emerald Iguana were not enough! A very private, quiet retreat in Ojai off the main street but within a five to ten minute walk of the stores and restaurants. No room service, no phones, lush landscaping all add to the peacefulness of the property. I had a wonderful in-room facial by Judy which topped off a... More

I reserved the Peacock Suite for two nights for visiting cousins. They enjoyed the setting, and the location in Ojai was very convenient to our getting together. The grounds are beautiful, and the atmosphere quiet and restful.

The Emerald Iguana is tucked away on a little street north of Ojai's main drag. It's within easy walking distance of town, restaurants and shops. The inn is totally Ojai - adobe-style walls, eclectic decor, laid back adult vibe. We stayed in Toad Room, which is all the was available when we made the reservation - it was simple and... More

I decided to head to Ojai from Los Angeles for a celebratory solo weekend, 3 YEAR CANCER FREE ANNIVERSARY treat! I found this little gem on Trip Advisor and I was MORE than pleased! It's nestled away in a residential area, so you know what that means........QUIETTTTTTTTTTTTTTT and super peaceful. They even enforce a 9:30pm quiet time policy and are... More

Emerald Iguana is a wonderful little hotel and the Treehouse is a great room to stay in; well appointed and extremely comfortable. Everything has a special touch: from the nice breakfast poolside to the way the rooms are decorated. I highly recommend the Emerald Iguana.
