I stayed at The Emerald Iguana Inn at the end of April and May First. I was able to rest and relax there, the private Patio in the Feather room, the poolside area and so on. All staffs were kind, it's near Ojai downtown. I was able to also enjoy hiking and a nice view behind the inn. I recomend... More

Had been looking for a quiet getaway. This completely fit the bill. The staff was warm and inviting. And, being greeted buy the neighbor's cat, Mr. Moustache, made the stay all that more special. Our goal was to simply rest. The bed was so comfy! Could have slept the weekend away. Lovely grounds, nice breakfast and a quiet stay. It... More

We were lodged for a few days in a cottage at the Emerald Iguana, with a large living room, kitchen, and cozy bedroom and nice bath. Everything was well-appointed and ready for use, and the staff were friendly and accessible. Breakfast around the small pool was relaxing and lovely. The limited selection was fine, and the coffee good, though I'd... More

This was a return trip to Ojai and the Emerald Iguana Inn. Such a lovely spot (both of them!). Stayed in the Grasshopper Room this year and it was lovely with its king bed and sweet patio. Very comfortable. Breakfast is pretty good, one piece of feedback would be to offer some sort of protein instead of just carbs. One... More

This is probably our 6th stay at the EI, and each time we have reaffirmed that we will be back. Luckily we don't live very far away, but it is a wonderful atmosphere and a nice change from home. Every one of the rooms that we have been in has been unique and lovely from Tadpole and Toad to Raven... More

We have stayed at the Emerald Iguana several times over the past three years. The property consists of a half-dozen or so whimsical buildings set amidst lush, lovingly maintained grounds at the end of a quiet residential street. An oval pool, surrounded by cushioned lounges, sits at the center of the property. The rooms are large, comfortable, and clean, and... More

This is an amazing property!!!! It was my first time in Ojai and decided not to stay at the big resort and so very glad we didn't. I agree with all the other glowing reviews that say it's a perfect spot for a quiet, reflective getaway. 4 easy blocks to downtown shopping and dinning and a very do-able gradual uphill... More

Spent 3 days hiking and shopping in Ojai. Needed much more time! The hotel is adults only, very quiet,pool, jacuzzi, breakfast bar. Lovely beds, kitchen, dining/living area. Feels like another country - I will return!

We stated for a quiet couples getaway and enjoyed every second. The inn is tucked in a quiet corner of Ojai but is close enough that walking into town was very nice and easy. I walked in quite often early in the morning, as I was still on NY time. We stayed in the toad room next to the pool.... More

Tranquil, peaceful, and quiet... Virtually no traffic noise at all. The cottages are nestled amongst an exceptionally beautiful garden setting. Great pool and hot tub with a perfect mix of sunny and shady spots to lounge. Tasty continental breakfast. Excellent brewed coffee (and we're coffee snobs). The adults only policy adds to the quiet atmosphere. Minutes away from a wide... More
