My wife and I celebrated our 27th anniversary and her birthday all on the same weekend. I chose this Inn as a recommendation from another couple. The Tadpole room was clean, quiet and quaint. There was a small outside sitting area on the porch that was very nice to sit and have a drink. We had a massage and a... More

Came up and stayed here for a spa weekend with 2 girlfriends. The cost is a fraction of what you would pay at Ojai Valley Inn and Spa and the accommodations are lovely and sweet. It is tucked away at the top of the street in a residential area. Great, unique rooms and beautiful grounds. This is an "adults only"... More

We stayed a year ago at the Blue Iguana last year. This year we tried the Emerald Iguana. It was a great choice. It is very comfortable with a great staff and great clienteles. We met people around the hot tub or for breakfast and struck up friendships. We will return!

I'm so relieved the over priced Valley Inn was full because we would of never stumbled across this hidden gem ! I really urge anyone to get a massage also ! They came to our room and it was the most amazing massage ever ! No kids and we were away from our own celebrating our anniversary so it was... More

This was a last minute getaway for my husband and I. The smaller rooms were booked but I called anyway to see if there were any cancellations. We were able to get a private cottage, The Raven, a 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage at a great promo price! We absolutely loved the cottage, the location and everything else. The temps... More

While the town of Ojai is dry-looking and dominated by Spanish Colonial architecture, the Emerald Iguana Inn is a tropical fantasy, with lush vegetation and vaguely Gaudi-esque architecture. In front of the reception office is a glass mosaic sculpture of an iguana with water gushing out its mouth. Eight or so cabin-like buildings surround a pool and courtyard. Tall eucalyptus,... More

Stayed in the Gekko Cottage and really enjoyed it. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, sitting area and kitchen was even more space than we needed. The best part of this place is the privacy; you really feel like you're in your own private location. I took advantage of a couple of their add-on packages, which were a bit pricey but great...

Awesome tranquil place to stay. Very nice accommodations. It's our sixth visit and we'll be back soon, as our most recent stay was too short for my liking. We stayed in the Feather Room and had no problems.

Loved staying at the Emerald Iguana. I went with 2 of my girlfriends and we stayed in the Raven Cottage, which was perfect for the 3 of us. It was quaint, charming, and very relaxing. I love that it is private and quiet, but you are only a 5 minute walk to town. It was like having your own little... More

We had several issues with the Inn. We stayed in the Toad Room. 1. the mattress offered no support; when we crawled in it sunk down six or more inches so we were awake most of the night with back pain. When we mentioned the mattress problem to the person at the desk the next morning, she offered that a... More
