Emerald Iguana Inn
Ranked #1 of 9 Ojai B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Our only complaint is that our room was very dark, needing lights to be on even in the middle of a sunny day. A staff member had recommended the Grasshopper Room to us, even though we reserved so early that all rooms wrere available at that time. She said the room was among her favorites.

After exploring the property, we realized we had been given poor advice.

But otherwise, a very nice stay.

Room Tip: If you like light, don't choose the Grasshopper.

What a wonderful stay! Don’t let the “inn” part of the name fool you. This place is so much more! I stayed at the Lilypad suite which had 1 bedroom, 1 2nd floor loft, 2 baths, 2 patios, and a full kitchen. My favorite part of the suite was the little Jacuzzi. The beds were all very comfortable and the inn environment was just as peaceful. The management enforces a quiet time so this place is great for those who are seeking peace and relaxation. There is also a pool and Jacuzzi so your rest and relaxation can definitely continue outside. The breakfast was great since it serves a large variety of pastries and beverages. Above and beyond all expectations, especially for an inn!

My wife and I stayed here mid-week. The property, which is tucked away in a residential area, is very peaceful and quiet, yet it's a short drive to the center of town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we arrived, we were informed that our reserved room had plumbing problems, and we were immediately upgraded to a much larger suite at no additional cost. The continental breakfast was fine. The food and beverage items were of good quality. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and sure you will too!

Super friendly and service oriented staff. Very pleasant and peaceful accomodations. It's what all B&B's should aspire to be... The breakfast in the morning feature fresh oj, water, coffee, bagels, pastries, fruit, etc right by the pool. We took a dip in the spa at night and had it to ourselves...it was very cozy and comfortable. First time to Ojai and definitely want to return.

Last time we were in Ojai we stayed at the Blue Iguana and fell in love with it. This time the Emerald made an equally wonderful impression. We stayed in the Raven room. It has 2 bedrooms and baths. We shared it with another couple and were all very comfortable, plenty of room and privacy for both couples.

We will definitely stay at the Iguana's again!

My husband and I recently got married at this lovely property. We rented the Frog suite and had a private ceremony (4 guests) on the porch of the cottage. The entire property is just lovely. The staff were very warm and helpful. The unit itself was absolutely beautiful! The kitchen was well equipped, bathroom was absolutely gorgeous and the furnishings were extraordinary. We fell in love with this particular unit and hope to return for our first anniversary and many thereafter.

Room Tip: We fell in love with Frog suite.

First time staying at Emerald Iguana; had looked at several units when in town previously.
Stayed 3 nights during the week. . . . it was quiet, comfortable and calming. The staff are
helpful, friendly and efficient. Our unit was Acorn: a very large studio w/king bed, living
room, large bathroom, dining area and full kitchen. It has a very large , private patio.
Daily cont./Med. breakfast poolside is perfect and adequate. Would stay here again !!!!

Room Tip: All suites/units are quiet and convenient. The website is excellent with pictures of all units.
