My husband and I stayed here while in Ojai for a wedding. It was a beautiful spot; perfect for a romantic weekend getaway. The pool is small but nice and there is a hot tub. The staff was welcoming and the breakfast served had plenty to choose from. We chose a basic room, but it was still very nice and... More

Good staff, very clean room, charming location. Because some people mentioned the road noise, when reserving the room, I asked it to be towards the back of the property. Done! No problem with the road traffic noise. A friend who lives there mentioned I wouldn't be walking distance from Downtown Ojai, but I'm glad I didn't change my mind. The... More

We were looking for a room in Oaji for just one night and found the Blue Iguana Inn on TripAdvisor ... what a nice find it was. A wonderful little gem on the outskirts of Ojai, along the local walking / biking trail. A restful oasis to visit this wonderful town. Would definitely book there again in the future.

Great hotel, very quiet, very clean. The hotel is a series of casitas with a great Spanish flavor.They have a pool, it was not heated, but they have a very nice jacuzzi, I was with friends and we brought some cheese, crackers and some wine and had a great time. I will definitely stay here next time I'm in Ojai.

The beautiful landscaping and neat architecture give this inn a very unique feel. Room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed sitting by the pool. The location is convenient to town (to drive). It seems like a popular place and was booked when we were there in July. The staff is friendly and they have more rules than I'm used... More

This place is special. The architecture is unique and the design on the overall property well thought out, the decor eclectic but not overdone and the landscaping just beautiful. We stayed in Casa Del Sol and it was so peaceful!The bedroom is cozy, the kitchen fully stocked with the ability to cook full meals. Outside the living room is a... More

If you are driving through Ojai or anywhere near the area, book your stay at the Blue Iguana. What an amazing guest experience. The rooms are spread out and located in villa-style walk outs, contributing to the peace and the size of these rooms. Our room fit two queen beds, a large bathroom and a wet bar and a fireplace...

Beautifully landscaped grounds, artful extra touches, gorgeous and comfortable rooms - the Blue Iguana Inn was perfect for our anniversary get-away. We were impressed with how clean and fresh everything was - from the rooms to the pool area (complete with small but inviting jacuzzi) to the rest of the grounds. Our room was perfect as it had its own... More

Very pretty grounds. The service is bar none. Our room was rustic, charming and clean. We accidentally booked a room that was adult only and even though they were fully booked they found a way to accommodate us. It's right outside of the city limits and it's really a little gem. I highly recommend without reservations.
