This is the 2nd time we have stayed there and we loved it even more than the 1st time. We stayed in the 2 bedroom Gecko cottage which was great. It even has it's own, large private patio. I feel like I am in a Fairy Tale Land when I am there. The architecture, decorating and attention to detail are... More

Small and pretty. Quiet hotel in residential neighborhood, but close to downtown. Lots of amenities and charm. Cute hidden away rooms and bungalows. Particularly enjoyed the pool area. Wi-fi is so-so. Highly recommended.

We loved it here! Quiet beautifully landscaped property, nice pool/spa, friendly staff. My husband and I stayed in the cricket "room", a 2 story unit with full kitchen and patio plus 2 balconies upstairs off the bedroom- wonderful. Great place for quiet R&R. Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I stayed in the cricket room. It was wonderful. We had huge windows that let in the sunlight and we were surrounded by trees and foliage. We loved our private patios, two upstairs and one down stairs. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the staff are great. They had a relaxing happy hour with a flute player... More

This is our second stay at this hotel. We stayed in the Acorn Suite on this trip, which was very nice, but had a strange bathroom (toilet and shower were up four tiled stairs). Full kitchen, nice seating area, nice patio with table, chairs and umbrella as well as two chaise lounges. The breakfast is nice, mostly cold offerings, but... More

The first one being a hotel in Rome that was 50 feet away from the Pantheon! This was a delightful, charming wonderful Inn. Our room was large, beautifully decorated, with a large, modern bathroom. We read on the balcony until it got dark. Counting the bathroom windows, it had windows on all four sides. Gaudi meets the Arabian Nights. We... More

These people have class! Everyone worked to graciously create magic; our rooms were better than the photos showed, the grounds were meticulously a sort of wild and free shrubberage. And the other visitors also followed suit. I look to return.

The room was just perfect and the property was quiet. I was looking forward to a peaceful stay and that it what I received. The room is exactly as pictured. I really enjoyed the little patio. It is not huge but just enough to sit outside have some coffee and read a book.

My husband and I were so pleased with our choice.The Emerald Iguana was a wonderful treasure. We did not know what to expect as we have never before visited Ojai, but WOW, we feel that we could not have made a better choice. The Emerald Iguana was quaint, quiet, beautiful, and relaxing. It was close enough to town to walk... More

The Emerald Iguana was absolutely wonderful. Beautiful grounds and little enchanted cottages. I wish I could buy the one that we stayed in. It was so quiet there. If you are not a loud person and want peace this is the place. If you are loud you don't belong here! The staff was wonderful and very helpful.
