We had a very relaxing two nights at the Emerald Iguana. The room was very cozy and comfortable with wine and chocolates awaiting us. The grounds are beautiful and shady. The pool is small but refreshing. Continental breakfast included juices, coffee, healthy choices of breakfast bars, yogurts, fruit. The Emerald Iguana is tucked in at the end of a neighborhood...

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary here last summer and had a relaxing and romantic few days together. We stayed in Frog Suite and although we planned on getting out more why bother when it's your own private cottage? We bought some groceries with us so we cooked, drank wine, and enjoyed each others company. Around 4-5... More

3rd time with these Nice People in the "Hobbit Village'' Hotel in a great town. Already booked next year! Cool place to relax ,close enough to walk to most things but far enough away to feel removed , if you need to.

I'd lived in Los Angeles 5 years before discovering how close-yet-worlds-away a trip to Ojai could be for a weekend getaway. We chose the Emerald Iguana Inn for what seemed like its rustic charm, quiet, and yet understated luxury -- and we were thrilled with it. We spent a normally hectic post-Christmas, pre-New Year's weekend just resting, hiking, and relaxing.... More

A perfect spot for rest and reflection on a milestone birthday! The Tadpole room was lovely - especially the private patio that allowed me to open the doors to the room and enjoy the outdoors! The lovely bottle of wine and box of chocolates presented to me when I checked in were a delightful touch! Service excellent! Continental breakfast better... More

We stayed in the Peacock room and it way surpassed my expectations. Love the layout and the interior design. We had a little bit of a problem with the TV/DVD player, which the front desk person couldn't help with. But she was very helpful in finding us a sports bar so that we could watch the game while having a... More

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
