My wife and I decided to take a last minute escape from Santa Monica last weekend and on Saturday late morning I started to make the calls with little expectation of landing a great room. We love Ojai because it only takes about an hour to drive from Santa Monica. I called the Blue Iguana because I stayed there a... More

Blue Iguana Inn is a perfect spot for our weekend getaway. It was a short drive from Burbank, and it was a great location; either an 8 min drive or a 2.5 mile scenic stroll to downtown. The continental breakfast was stocked with fruits, yogurts, pastries, cereal, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, and coffee, tea and hot chocolate. The patio for... More

Just outside of Ojai, this place is truly an oasis for relaxing and reflecting. We stayed in the "Casita del Sol"...Private backyard and a huge covered front porch overlooking the garden and lawn area. We spent most of our time lounging in our robes on the overstuffed patio furniture. Would definitely stay there again whenever in the area.

Beautiful grounds, 3 minute drive from main drag in Ojai. Rooms are thoughtfully decorated and have all the amenities you might need. Owners clearly care about the business and everyone was very helpful and accommodating. Love the included breakfast.

My husband and I recently enjoyed a night at the Blue Iguana and marveled at their attention to detail, care of the property and the sublime aesthetic of our suite. We will definitely be back, and we really appreciate the beauty and ambiance of the Blue Iguana Inn.

The Blue Iguana is a hidden little gem just one mile outside of downtown Ojai. The rooms are nicely appointed with very comfy beds. They also offer a wide variety of in-room drinks and snacks at very reasonable prices. We were in Ojai to celebrate my sister-in-laws 50th birthday, so there were a few of us staying at the Blue...

My family of 4 and our dog stayed in a 2BR cottage at the Blue Iguana in February 2015. It really is one of the best dog friendly places we have stayed at. The cottage was spacious and clean for all of us. There is also a good deal of green space on the property for walking your dog or... More

We were 6 couples traveling together for a quick long weekend getaway. We took the Hacienda House and Suite which provided perfect 3 bedroom, 3 bath accommodations. The separate detached suite even had an extra day bed in case someone has a child they want to bring. The décor and architecture were lovely and we felt very comfortable. There is... More

We loved the outside of the Inn, surrounded by trees and a nearby meadow. The architecture is visually beautiful with unique details added to each building. Rooms are quaint and lovely, but when we entered our room the heater was on full blast and we could smell some detergents and chemicals burning our eyes. The desk manager came immediately and...

We are sorry this guest experienced an odor when checking into their room. As part of our usual cleaning protocol we use lemon based environmentally friendly cleaning products, however, occasionally when deeper cleaning is required a stronger product is needed. We apologize if there wasn't time to properly air out this room prior to their arrival. We are pleased that... More
