I found this place online and decided to give it a try. I was so pleased. The garden surrounding the pool fills the air with a baeutiful scent. The patio was a perfect place to sip my ine at night and my coffee in the morning. I loved the big jetted tub in my room and the place looked like... More

We stayed here for a week largely because the location was convenient for our needs, but found it a charming and relaxing place to spend time. The Blue Iguana is beautifully designed, with Gaudi-inspired ceramic sculptures, pueblo-style architecture, and a brilliant use of space, so that even though the site is quite small, on a main road, and (especially when...

I've stayed at the Ojai Resort and Spa, which is wonderful but expensive. Here you can have as much charm and as peaceful a rest for less than half the price. The staff is nice, the grounds are attractive, and even though my room was near a busy road it was quiet. I had a room to myself but my... More

Originally planned as a getaway for 3 to celebrate a dear friends' 50th birthday, it turned out to be a getaway for 5. We stayed at Casa Alegre, 2 bedroom one bath unit, but we were most comfortable. The unit is self contained with ALL the amenities of home. Beautifully decorated, upgraded linens, spacious, and almost complete kitchen utensils! The... More

We stayed In Room 5 for a week which we categorized as a little bungalow with a living room, full kitchen and a bedroom with a king bed. We were greeted with a smile from Diana and upon check in she walked us to our room and explained where the amenities were located. The Blue Iguana is in a very... More

The minute you check in you are are in a state of relaxation. As you wander the lush grounds to your room you are catered to with a very helpful and caring staff. The room was superb and very spacious for our needs and the entire grounds evoked a special meditative state.

We had a wonderful experience at the Blue Iguana Inn. I will recommend it highly to others. Thank you for everything. Making a review of two hundred characters is a little annoying. We enjoyed the Farmer's Market and the food was good everywhere. We especially enjoyed the Ojai Cafe Emporium. Doug Potter

This was our last stay before heading home from a 13 day adventure down the California coast. We had an amazing time and stayed in fabulous places all along the way until the Blue Iguana Inn. Upon check-in we were greeted with list of things we can not do instead of a nice hello. We were traveling with our dog... More

We are sorry this guest was disappointed with their experience. They had booked the room closest to the road on a sold out Friday afternoon. Upon check-in they asked to be moved but the hotel was fully booked so there wasn't anything else available. We did our best to be welcoming and accommodating. We happily welcome our canine guests but... More

This hotel was terrific. The photos that you see online - just like in real life. We were in a room that had two queen beds and they were comfortable. The main issue for us (and why it's not a five star review) is that we were traveling with our 3 and 5 year old children. They are "well behaved"... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice staff, GREAT king size bed, continental, but good breakfast included. Our room felt like an apartment. Eclectic, beautifully maintained grounds. We were close enough to town to easily get around, but far enough away to avoid the crowd.
