This was a gem of a hotel! The prices were pretty decent for the area, it was about 150 per night for a double queen room. Super comfortable beds, great pool and hot tub, and very friendly staff. The wifi signal was a little sketchy in-room, but this is kind of a place to get away from it all, so... More

Very low-key and relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful. The decor includes sculptures in the rooms and around the grounds, which are off-beat without being weird, cute without being cutesy. Our room included two sun masks, a wooden iguana on the wall, and a black metal rooster on top of the TV stand. Of course there is the big... More

Place is lovely, grounds so welcoming, service was delightful, our weekend couldn't have been better. Pool was very comfortable, didn't swim but enjoyed the sun. Breakfast was very simple, so if your hungry go to a restaurant. Only complaint, the air conditioner was very noisy. Tried to sleep with the fan only but to hot. Will be back again soon.

This was a wonderful weekend getaway spot. My girlfriend and I went to Ojai for the Lavender Festival and were pleasantly surprised by the charm of the Blue Iguana and it's beautiful landscape. Beware that the pool is close to the highway and a bit noisy w/out a restroom close by or water available. I would highly recommend the Inn... More

We were attending a wedding in Ojai so our group had four rooms/bungalows from one to two bedrooms for four nights. The place was in in character with the California/Spanish motif and very tastefully done. The rooms were very "homey" clean and comfortable and in a beautiful, quiet setting. The continental breakfast was sufficient and had a good selection, but... More

I would highly recommend the Blue Iquana to anyone traveling in and around Ojai. Service was excellent and everything was very clean, just like I like it. Glad we got to add an extra night to our stay

We recently returned from a three night stay at the Blue Iguana. It is a charming Inn with a southwestern/Spanish motif located about one and a half miles from the center of town. They offer a wide variety of rooms including one room studios, one bedroom suites and two bedroom villas. All of the rooms are tastefully decorated with attractive... More

I spent last weekend at the Blue Iguana. My room was very large and lovely. It had so much character. I liked the grounds. It was so beautiful and peaceful. They arranged for a wonderful massage. It was a very relaxing experience.

We stayed for three nights in a King Suite. The suite was in the back and had two patios...one in front and one in the back. Plenty of room for relaxing and good access to town. Breakfast buffet was adequate, but nothing to write home about. Staff was friendly, service was good, but unobtrusive.
