I am usually disappointed by hotels/inns/B&Bs in that they rarely hold up to their websites descripions. I kept telling the wonderful people at The Emerald Iguana that their website didn't do them justice. The setting, the grounds, the pool area are idyllic. It was such a cozy spot and the rooms were spacious, well-decorated and felt like a high-quality home... More

We stayed in the Peacock room for two nights and it was just lovely. There is an air conditioner in the bedroom that is hard to find so we baked the first night but the second was great. Breakfast is quite nice and the grounds are pretty.

Beautiful and charming cottage with great furniture and beds. Plus loads of kitchen stuff. Had a quiet beer on the porch before hitting the town! Small pool and lounge area for further relaxation. Try the Hub bar in town for good beer.

We spent almost a week at the Emerald Iguana Inn and were delighted. Our suite, the Leaf, was quite comfortable, well decorated with some original artwork, and large for just 2 persons. While the breakfast was strictly continental (nothing hot, except toasted bagels), eating by the pool was charming. The grounds are lovely.

Truly a little bit of paradise. It is a great getaway and so close to LA. The sky was blue as if to tell us even the weather is consistent with the simple beauty of these accommodations. Look around. Hear the noise? Of course you don't. So quiet and serene you'll think that you were in Emerson's cabin near Walden... More

My daughter and I went for a mother-daughter retreat. We got the 2 hour massage special with in room massages. The grounds were lovely. The room was spacious with our own patio, in room claw foot tub and separate shower. The breakfast was fine. We were given recommendations for restaurants that were right on.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and it was a perfect getaway. We booked the "Frog" suite which lovey. The pool felt very private and the water temperature was perfect.(refreshing). my husband couldn't get put of the jacuzzi. They serve a continental breakfast and the food was very fresh. We chose to have in room massages; what a treat.... More

We were there in June for our daughter's wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean room, comfortable bed, beautiful grounds, nice continental breakfast. Everything: the room, the staff, and everything in between was well-worth going back for.

The Emerald Iquana is a great place to stay. I stayed in a cottage and it was so roomy and cozy. Great service and really enjoyed the stay. I only regret I was only there for one night. I will definately return this time just for fun.

This hideaway was beautifully decorated in a quiet corner of Ojai. Close enough to walk to the shops and restaurants in town, but the decor makes you feel secluded. Nice pool, staff and breakfast. The perfect getaway from the city.
