We really enjoyed our stay. Nice staff, GREAT king size bed, continental, but good breakfast included. Our room felt like an apartment. Eclectic, beautifully maintained grounds. We were close enough to town to easily get around, but far enough away to avoid the crowd.

Our first visit to Ojai, and we only stayed one night. Loved the quiet feel of the town and the friendly atmosphere. Beautiful well-maintained property. Only problem was that we did not find the room thermostat so it was a bit too warm - hidden behind the TV cabinet. We had our dog along and he was welcome. There is...

We were very pleasantly surprised by this gem. It is really cute and spacey. The room was very clean and decorated with a lot of taste. The little things such as candles made it very cozy. The staff was very helpful and ensured our experience at the Blue Iguana was a unique experience. Will definitely return for the cuteness of...

Our stay at the Blue Iguana was a pleasant surprise. We came to town for our son's wedding and picked the Blue Iguana for our stay on his recommendation. The grounds are very nice. The room was superb! The staff was very accommodating and helpful. We would love to stay here again. After a long trip over from Wisconsin we...

I have several clients in Ojai so I'm there every month or so. I always stay at the Blue Iguana. The rooms are all nicely appointed, beautifully maintained, cozy, and spacious. I'm very picky about noise, so I usually ask for a room in the back of the property, but even the ones in the front are fine. I'm also...

This is a beautiful well maintained property just a few miles outside the heart of Ojai. We booked at the last minute and there was only one of the basic rooms left. It was comfortable and nicely appointed albeit a bit small, but for $159 a night it was a deal. The staff was friendly and accommodating. When we came...

We arrived tired and frustrated after an uncomfortable stay at a hotel in Carpinteria. When we got to the Blue Iguana, we found an oasis. The rooms are beautiful and welcoming to a couple of writers and artists looking to escape Los Angeles. It's a short trip into the welcoming and quaint downtown but truthfully, we didn't even want to...

Everything was great. Friendly people at reception, beautiful grounds, generous breakfast and restful in spite of the busy street. Dog friendly which is important to me. I usually stay at the Emerald Iguana but I think I like Blue better especially since I can travel with my dog.
