So hard to put into words the magic of this beautiful place...It's an experience of serenity, healing energy, and comfort in a lovely setting. The Emerald Iguana Inn has the essence of Ojai in a home away from home!

What a lovely spot -- tucked back in a residential neighborhood like a secret. A beautiful place with real historical character. Our cottage (Raven) was spacious and perfect for two couples. The pool area was a great place to relax in the afternoons, or to eat breakfast in the morning. The staff was friendly and always ready with a recommendation... More

Have traveled by this inn several time in trips to Ojai. Finally got to stay when a close friend had her wedding. What a comfortable cozy room well stocked mini bar. We chose the 2 night get away package and the massages were wonderful! The room has a cute patio that is great for reading lounging. This is a great... More

I have stayed in Ojai many times. how have I missed this place?/ It is off the main thoroughfare,tucked back up in the neighborhood street. It is quiet and peaceful but still a pretty easy walk to downtown. It is a collection of different size buildings and cottages all beautifully,artistically decorated. We stayed in the Acorn suite... a wonderful place... More

The staff is very attentive. Everything is very very clean. Very quirky layout and style, in an artsy-warm way. Feels very owner-run, not corporate at all. True meaning of boutique. I've been there 3 times. The Cricket room is my fav. Pool is always immaculate. Tadpole room is a bit smaller so it's not my fav, but it is still... More

This was our first visit and we choose the Gecko Cottage and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Spacious with two bedrooms with very comfortable beds, two baths and two patios plus kitchen, dining room and living room. The cottage was so well appointed -- there was nothing we lacked. Great complimentary breakfast by the pool and wine/cheese in... More

We rented a cabin at the Emerald Iguana Inn with another couple, and absolutely loved it. Not only was the place lovely, complete with a beautiful pool and grounds, but they serve a great breakfast as well. Ojai itself is a lovely spot near Santa Barbara, and is therefore an excellent base for visiting wine venues in places like Los... More

Nice large room, well-appointed, with ample space in bathroom. Newly remodeled king sized bed room had a very comfy mattress, handy side patio, & was located close to the pool & morning breakfast. Good little breakfast, helpful staff, would stay here again.

Stayed here for the first time for our annual girls' weekend. It will now be our destination for next year's weekend! Everything about the Inn is top notch, from the staff who couldn't be more friendly and helpful, to the special artistic touches in each room and throughout the whole property. Breakfast is included and is a lovely spread; the... More

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary here. It was very relaxing, quiet and private. Everyone was really nice, including other couples we met at the pool. We are looking forward to visiting again soon!
