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!

The Emerald Iguana is special from the creative playful art geckos adorning the cottages to the attentive staff and the rustic ambience of this wonderful get- away. It's close to everything yet hidden away and peaceful. Breakfast at the pool , a nice way to start the day, or star gaze at night.

I recently hosted a family group of 12 people, ages 18 to 91, who arrived from 3 states. We stayed in Treehouse, Raven, Peacock, Frog, and Lilypad. Everyone absolutely loved the Emerald! It was quiet and secluded, a great place to relax, unwind, and catch up with each other at the pool or on a front patio. The rooms were... More

This is the best hotel I have ever had the pleasure to stay. First...the surroundings are most beautiful and peaceful. Second...the staff could not have been more helpful. Third...our room was amazing with a front porch, living room, separate bedroom...and kitchen! All of them clean and inviting. I literally walked around our room in disbelief that I would ever be...

I love this place...by far my favorite place to stay in Ojai! Peaceful and quiet both inside and out. Looks like a little fairly-land at night with all the foliage and twinkle-lights. A small but beautiful pool area and nice breakfast set up in the AM. An easy walk to downtown Ojai. I've stayed in the Tree House every time... More

2nd stay at EII and actually 2nd stay in the Tadpole room. In general, this inn offers just a great kick-back, relaxing, quiet atmosphere. Front desk personnel friendly and attentive. Tadpole room very nice & comfortable. Love the king size bed and linens. Would definitely stay here again, maybe try another of their unique rooms and surely recommend this spot... More

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Emerald Iguana and we only wish we could have stayed longer. The property is in a quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance to the center of Ojai. The grounds are lush with trees and other greenery and the rooms are set about the property in a way that provides for... More

Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood with lots of trees. We loved the decor, the private patios, comfortable beds, great swimming pool and the continental breakfast was delicious. The Emerald Iguana is a beautiful retreat and the staff is wonderful. Definitely will come again!
