We spent only one night at the Blue Iguana Inn unfortunately, but there is no doubt we would return. Staying at a smaller property is not everyone, but we felt very relaxed and at home in the well designed rooms. They were spacious and comfortably furnished with pieces that don't give it that hotel room feel. We had a wonderful... More

My wife and I had spent the prior week visiting family in San Diego and going to a reunion in LA and wanted to have the last night for ourselves. We were wandering north and decided to check out Ojai. When we got within a few miles of town my wife went online to look for a place to stay.... More

The Blue Iguana is a lovely southwestern style inn, not a 4 Seasons for example, but very nice. The furnishings were warm, carpet American Indian design, very clean & the beds were great. The bathroom wasn't updated with granite, etc., but it was fine. Judging from the room we stayed in there is no need to spend more money on... More

We loved our room close to the pool and Jacuzzi plus all the landscaping and tiled iguana art. Upon our arrival, a hummingbird was standing on one of the iguana fountains, drinking water off the tongue!

Bed was comfy, air conditioning was available in the living quarters as well as the bedroom. The kitchen sink was a bit small to clean pans in but the grounds and great service made up for it. Breakfast was hot & ready at the crack of dawn and we have decided to make this our go-to spot for our anniversary... More

My husband and I came to Ojai for our friend's wedding and stayed at the Blue Iguana. We loved everything about this place. All of the employees were so welcoming and we loved the comfort and amenities in our room. You can even borrow movies from the front desk! The breakfast was perfect and we loved all the options for... More

Great location, clean and friendly. Everything was great. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. Close enough to town to get to restaurants easily, far enough away so you're not in the hubbub of traffic.

We had a nice weekend stay on a 90-degree weekend. The room we were given was huge, very comfortable and very well air-conditioned. Front desk staff was extremely helpful. Definitely recommend. The only negatives were the small, outdated shower and the AC unit blew air essentially right over the bed. But with the outdoor heat, we were comfortable in the... More

Last weekend I stayed at the Hacienda House at the Blue Iguana with 4 friends for a girls weekend. We had a great time! The house is really spacious, beautifully decorated and very quiet with its own separate patio that we enjoyed for hours. The Blue Iguana is a really a special little gem in Ojai and I'm looking forward... More
