Just got back from a great stay in the Frog room. The room was great and the whole place is just lovely -- a great pool, very nice breakfast, friendly staff, good location in Ojai and so much charm and fun. It's really nice!

Every room is different with it's own name and character. We stayed in 'Acorn' which has a sitting area with sofa and stove, very comfortable bedroom area, a lovely kitchen and best of all a large private patio. Each of the cottages and rooms is tucked away in the beautiful setting with large trees overhanging. The Inn is at the... More

It's hard for me to say negative things about this property, but the negative things that happened really tarnished my visit. Upon arrival, I was loving the place and my room. The room was incredible - tons of space. Living room, dining room, full kitchen, huge bed and good bathroom space. Thought the place was perfect! First downhill experience was... More

My new favourite place to stay in Ojai! A real charmer with clean, comfortable and romantic rooms, friendly staff and a chilled vibe. The mature gardens and quiet ‘end of street’ location really make this place intimate and special.

A friend suggested we stay at the Emerald Iguana Inn and she couldn't have been more right on! Everything from the location at the dead-end street (very quiet), to the beautiful property grounds, the wonderful breakfast and wine & cheese by the pool, the room we had (Toad) was perfect! The first day we were there laying by the pool... More

The Emerald Iguana Inn in Ojai has been our favorite getaway spot for several years now. It is the most beautiful, restful accommodations we have ever found anywhere in all of our travels. The rooms and cottages are private, quiet, tastefully decorated with wonderful artwork from local artists. The bedding is very comfortable, the pool and jacuzzi are a welcome... More

One of the best getaway weekends. Excellent facility and service. Definitely a "need to come back again" kind of place.

We had a girls weekend trip and stayed at the Emerald Iguana. We took the Lilypad for 6 people. We had a great time. The place feels tucked away and very intimate, but very close to downtown as well. We love the vegetation at the property. The breakfast is great. We especially loved the quiche. The only imperfection is that... More

Management response:

We are so pleased our guests enjoyed their stay in the Lilypad Suite! Comments and suggestions from guests such as this are extremely valuable. While we do not have a CD library, the one CD we do offer is complementary to our guests to enjoy at the inn. As for cleaning products, we find our guests prefer non-scented cleaning products...

We had a large group gathering (25+ people). Nearly 20 people stayed at the Emerald Iguana. The grounds and rooms are near perfect and the service is wonderful. A nice breakfast and happy hour are included. It is more like a B&B than a hotel. It is conveniently located near central Ojai, a few minutes walk into town. I'd recommend... More
