We were in Room 1 which is the first room when you enter. Wondered about road traffic but it was not a problem. It was a 2-bedroom suite. Plenty of room...a home away from home. I will definitely stay here in the future.

Room was as advertised, but shower handle was extremely hard to turn (my wife couldn't do it) and there were no provisions for anyone older, such as grab bars. Breakfast was totally forgettable, in an unheated room (53F). Furniture in the room was uncomfortable. This place looks like it was built 20 years ago and then never updated. The grounds...

We regret this guest didn't enjoy their stay and was not booked in a room that had proper accommodations for their special needs. They booked through a 3rd party vendor (ie: Expedia or Booking.com) and therefor our staff was unable to insure they had the room that would be most satisfactory for them. We always suggest guests call us directly...

We had a one bedroom suite that was comfortable and looked exactly like the website's photos promised it would. It had a small terrace area, a VERY comfortable bed, a decent bathroom and a gas stove in the living room. The staff was welcoming and the other guests were quiet and private. Although there are the usual (and very nice)...

How great to unexpectedly arrive in a place that so mirrors the great energy of Ojai - a rustic southwestern charm with all the creature comforts! I loved having a CD player in the room for me to play relaxing music and even a candle in the room which didn't at all make it seem like a regular hotel room!...

This little gem is located a couple of miles from downtown Ojai. It has all the amenities...continental breakfast, pool, spa, knowledgeable staff and comfortable rooms. We had a great two nights there.

As always the Blue Iguana lives up to its excellent reputation in cleanliness, accommodations, staff,service, and ambience . I booked our room in less than two weeks before the holiday and we were able to get room 12 (handicap with 2 beds) for the first night and then move two doors down to room 10 for two more nights. In...

What a Beautiful Surprise of a boutique hotel; it reminded me of being in Santa Fe. The grounds were lush and tree abundant, the service impressive and the decor made your room feel like you were visiting a friend and had your own cottage. Small cons: on a busy road, shower head too high (I'm 5'8 & my hubby 6'2)....

In sync with the town's vibe and really very pleasant - visually and in creature comforts. Accommodating staff. Memory foam bed. Big pot of coffee in the room! Nice breakfast with al fresco tables. Convenient. My 3rd stay!

We had such a delightful time at the Blue Iguana! From the huge blue mosaic lizard sculpture that greeted us as we walked in, to the refreshing tiled pool where I swam in the moonlight, to the beautifully decorated and maintained room, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The breakfast was plentiful and convenient, and the king size bed was so comfortable....

Cute place. Very clean and well maintained throughout. Would've enjoyed and appreciated a suite with living room and kitchen and more rustic decor (to fit with the Ojai theme :)) but needed two beds so only had two available choices and wanted to be situated in the back of the property farther from the highway. Pics are on the website....
