My husband and I stayed in the Acorn Suite while visiting relatives in Ojai. The suite was cozy and comfy with a full kitchen, dining area and sitting area that included a stove with gas logs. The TV was in the sitting area so no TV watching was possible from the bed. There was a spacious private courtyard off our... More

We had a very comfortable stay at the Emerald Iquana. The staff was very service oriented and the breakfast was excellent: fresh scones, eggs, coffee - all served poolside in a lovely setting. The room also had a kitchen with everything we needed to make a little late night snack

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending two nights at the emerald Inn two weekends ago. We had never been to Ojai before; yet alone the Emerald Iguana Inn. We loved it from beginning to end. The staff there was so helpful and cordial. We loved the Feather Room; a delight to stay in. We walked downtown several... More

From the easy access, to the friendly reception, the immaculate rooms and grounds and to the beautiful plantings, Emerald Iguana Inn scores "Excellent". Hard to suggest any way to improve the experience. We were in the Peacock Suite, which is a great candidate for a return visit.

We had a wonderful time. Lots if privacy and tranquility. Beth in the office was a great resource and friend. We stayed five days and hated to leave. This is pure, laid back pleasure. No hustle or bustle. We will definitely be back.

My husband gave me a wonderful surprise by taking me to the Emerald Iguana Inn in Ojai. Wow! Where do you I start? Its a beautiful inn, looks kind of middle in the residential area but very very peaceful and quiet. The property has beautiful landscaping, its almost like being transported to a faraway place. Ours was the frog suite.... More

We've been visitung since 2009 and stay here in the acorn suite. It has the best private, enclosed patio of the suites. No kids! It's all about quiet and relaxation. Place is clean, homey and the staff is wonderful. Each time we've visited, we are greated warmly by gracious hosts. It's walking distance from the main strip. Great little getaway.

Rivercliff is a four room house off site up in the hills west of Ojai. It is on a ravine with a creek running through (when there isn't a drought going on) Rivercliff offers a serene beautiful oasis. We will return.

From the front desk, through the grounds, to our amazing get-away casita, there was nothing not to love! It's a beautiful, comfortable, place from which to enjoy all that Ojai has to offer. The tips for great restaurants and wonderful hikes from the people at the front desk were spot on. We will go back in a heartbeat. Thank you... More

Beautiful location perfect for walking into town for dinner. We had a short visit but well worth the time and expense. Lovely retreat from very busy schedules. A pool surrounded by exquisite gardens. a quiet neighborhood.
