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.

We were in town for a wedding and the Emerald Iguana was recommended. We rented the Raven room which had two separate bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms which were more than adequate, clean. The beds were comfortable and the peace and quiet of the place a welcome surprise during an otherwise hectic weekend. The location is a little bit out of... More

The Emerald Iguana proved to be the perfect place for a weekend "girls" getaway. So that we could each have a private bedroom we rented two cottages (Raven and Lilypad). Both have small kitchens, living rooms, are well-located on the property, and give a sense of privacy. Overall, Lilypad feels newer, brighter, and is better for gathering together. Its second...

There were 10 of us. We had a very fun time. This place is a little reserved for a few in our group. As it's very very quiet. And we were loud at the pool until 10pm. And a few of the 20 something in our group were a little crazy for this place. They probably should be in Miami... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived after sunset at this lovely inn. Tucked in a residential hood in Ojai, just a few blocks from town, this lovely hotel is a real find. The lovely Pilar greeted me at the check in and showed me to my room. I stayed in "Frog" and is perfect. One large bedroom and a... More
