My husband and I stayed at the Emerald this past weekend and we stayed in the Peacock Room. We LOVED IT! The staff were very friendly and Sheri was great. I loved this place and would recommend it to anyone. All of the rooms are unique and very quaint and lovely. The Inn was booked with half the rooms taken... More

We stayed in the Cricket cottage-beautiful airy and spacious-two balconies upstairs off the bedroom...romantic and secluded...just perfect! Everything was super clean and comfortable. They served breakfast in the morning, relatively standard but a nice selection/variety of options and they had soy milk which was a plus! We especially enjoyed the evening wine and cheese by the pool and the lovely... More

Pros: I stayed at the "tree house" with my girlfriend for two nights. The location is very beautiful and the buildings are very cute with cozy decoration. The staff is friendly and responsive. You get complimentary breakfast with a healthy theme. Cons: On the second day we started seeing a few silver fish bugs around the bed, which was annoying.... More

We work very hard to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and certainly wish if something had slipped that management would have been notified. I do not know in which room this guest stayed or when they stayed so I cannot contact them in an effort to gather more details but I have personally inspected every room to be sure... More

We stayed at the Emerald Iguana at least four times. The most recent was May of 2011. We love the adults-only aspect of it. We love the spacious cottages with full kitchens and private patios and/or balconies. This last time, we took advantage of the breakfast served out by the pool: hard boiled eggs, fruit, cereal, bagels and other pastries.... More

Loved this place. My husband and I were in town from FL to visit some friends who live in the area. We stayed in the Tadpole Room. Comfy bed, private porch. Loved that the mini fridge items weren't outrageous like in big hotel chains. So tranquil here....perfect for a quiet getaway. We will be back for sure!

We stayed at the property for a week and since I booked just 2 weeks before we left, we stayed in three different rooms/suites. Because of this, I can truly say the rooms are lovely and charming, the beds are comfortable and it is so quiet! We loved how each room had it's own private outside patio, and the continental...

I had planned to go to Ojai with a friend and when she had a change of plans I decided to go anyway. I realized that traveling solo can be a very gratifying!

We had a fantastic stay here. The pool and spa were lovely, the grounds are beautiful, and the rooms are very charming. The service staff was SUPER helpful, giving great recommendations for things to do in the area and even making our dinner reservation for us. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
