3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We stayed here -nothing wrong with it, we were a bit disappointed but perhaps our expectations were too high given other people's reviews. The breakfast was adequate, not great, and the coffee was lukewarm, not hot. The room was nothing special for the money. The staff was very nice though.

The Emerald Iguana is a peaceful, laid back, easy feeling kinda place. Continental breakfast, very cozy and comfortable rooms with lots of amenities. Everything is decorated and furnished with antiques to die for. Very pleasant staff and within walking distance of fine dining as well as casual dining. The town itself is very low key making for a very relaxing... More

We stayed in the Feather room and it had everything you could want including a king bed, two sinks in the bathroom and a private patio. Located in a residential neighborhood, the setting was quiet and lovely.

We go here to retreat from reality. It truly is a tucked away lil tree house gem. Very reasonably priced, some of the most comfy beds you'll ever lay on.. sheer perfection! If you are looking for a nice get away, kids aren't allowed at this location so you're already ahead of the game here for guaranteed peace!

My husband and I stayed in the Gecko Cottage and with our adult kids. It was spacious and wonderfully comfortable, tastefully decorated and very clean. We had not been away in 9 years because of my husband's health. This was the retreat we needed. We will be back soon! Thank you for the treats in the office to the delicious... More

This will be our 9th stay at this gorgeous property. All the cottages are so comfortable, beautifully decorated and fully stocked. With NO kids allowed the pool area is quiet and serene for an afternoon of reading or soaking. 4pm wine and treats is a great day to finish the afternoon. We walk everywhere when here - store, dinner, lunch.

I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a retreat to Ojai. Quiet, peaceful, clean. Great place for a getaway. Our room was the Tadpole, which was perfect for our 3 nights spent in Ojai. The bed was comfy and the shower had enough water pressure to wash my hair, not something I can say about many of the places we... More

Lovely lady at reception checked me in, showed the nice room, jacuzzi, coffee and snacks. Everything was neat, authentic and comfortable. The garden was beautiful and the ceramic decors on that walls were unique and pretty. THE ONLY DOWNSİDE WAS THE BREAKFAST WAS READY ONLY AFTER 8.00-8.30 AM.

This is a really cute and quaint spot that is walkable to the middle of town. Stayed in the suite with bedroom upstairs and living room and kitchen downstairs. It was a beautiful and tranquil spot. The pool was small but perfectly acceptable. The breakfast could have used a couple of more choices. Great bang for the buck. Really the... More
