The property is very nice, with private patios and pretty landscaping. The staff was helpful, too. The room was a bit noisy though. You could hear people walking and the creaky floor above. And once in a while the toilet would break into a loud rendition of vernal fall, the first time as the receptionist was showing us the room.... More

Center of town is a nice walk, close to start of trails. In a residential area, feel part of Ojai. Can imagine usually quiet, but the day we were there, minor construction which was the only hassle. Great warm greeting from the staff and wonderful breakfast.

Emerald Iguana is a beautiful little oasis in the hills of Ojai. What a fantastic night we had here in the Toad Room...located right by the pool and jacuzzi, which made it nice to scope out the scene before partaking. Small pool area, but plenty of space for like 4 people at a time. We went on a slow weekend... More

My three girls and I stayed in the Lilypad at the Eerald Iguana for four nights. Our stay was wonderful. We had three large beds and sufficient space to move about and enjoy outselves. The activity area is where we enjoyed the hot tub & pool, breakfast, and just laid in the sun visiting. We had massages and facials which... More

We stayed at the Emerald Iguana Inn, in the Grasshopper Room, for a nice overnight getaway, away from the kids. The room was large and comfortable, with all the amenities, including our own private balcony. The bathroom was a little bit small in the corner. We had a nice breakfast by the pool. The only issue we had is that... More

The Innkeepers were so helpful and fun. We stayed in the "Lilypad" suite and it was warm and welcoming and very comfy.The linens were lush and the bathrooms roomy and nicely appointed. The... More

Just a few words to describe the lovely Emerald Iguana Inn. It is conveniently located nestled off the main road but in the middle of town, walking distance to lots of restaurants, Starr Market, cinema, museums, plenty of shops and tons of walking trails. I have stayed at Ojai Valley Inn and Spa many times and I will never stay... More

My finance and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. The staff was incredible friendly and helpful, and the facility was clean. We stayed in the Peacock room (cute one bedroom cottage with full kitchen, fireplace and claw foot tub). It was located a short walk/ drive from the downtown strip. I read a review that said the breakfast was... More

We stayed in the Gecko room (4 people). The guest room is significantly smaller than the master bed room, but the room is cozy. Guest bath has a tub, master has a shower. Guest bath is separate from guest room. The staff very friendly. Breakfast was included (yogurt, cereal, instant oatmeal, juice, muffins, pastries, banana, cherries, hard boiled egg, etc.).... More

One of the best hotels in Ojai in my opinion! We are locals and stay here a few times a year to just get away and have retreats. The attention to detail is amazing and the rooms are great! I would reccommnend it to anyone!
