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

We just returned from a weekend in Ojai at the Emerald Iguana Inn. We stayed in the Frog Suite which was gorgeous. It was probably bigger than what we actually needed, but very nice! The furniture in it was so cool. The room ad on the website advertised it as having a king bed but it is most definitely a... More

We had little time to get out of town, relax, remember how much we love each other, but the Emerald Iguana was easy to get to and the moment we entered the gate, we felt relaxed and happy to be there. Happy to be together. I'm not saying that the Inn is all it takes to get a relationship back... More

Rest easy, your search is over for the ideal place to stay in Ojai. It's The Emerald Iguana. Those who stay there are transported into a world of peace and tranquility surrounded by green foliage. It's really more like an intimate bed and breakfast having just 13 rooms each one having its own unique identity. All the front desk people... More

The tranquility and charm of the Emerald Iguana Inn was the highlight of our first-ever trip to Ojai. Town was a bit sleepy and small for us antsy urbanites, but this fantasy inn enabled us to slow down and enjoy the intoxicating scent of springtime orange blossoms. From our first glimpse from our drive through the quaint neighborhood, we felt... More

First time at this property, and it did not disappoint! We stayed in the Peacock Suite (no idea why it has this name) which was great. Favorite feature of this room - real wood-burning fireplace in main room. Breakfast every morning was fresh and tasty; jacuzzi was nice and hot; grounds were well-kept and serene. What's not to like? It's... More

My husband found this inn online for my birthday weekend and he did a great job. The inn is lovely and the grounds lush with trees and beautiful plants. We had a nice room with a kitchenette, fireplace and patio where we enjoyed our complimentary continental breakfast. We even had a visiting, friendly cat to welcome us each day we... More
