We came here for our tenth anniversary looking for a romantic, secluded getaway. We found that and more. From the helpful, unobtrusive staff to the beautiful architecture and serene setting to the proximity to town, this place was perfect. We will be returning for sure and recommending to all our friends and family.

Room Tip: Any room is amazing, but the cottages are truly remarkable.

I go to Emerald Iguana to be quiet, to be peaceful, and to revel in the joys of Ojai. My work is stressful and demanding, and this respite is exactly the right tonic. People are helpful and engaging and you can't beat the location or the facilities. I book a week every year.

Room Tip: If natural light is a deal-breaker for you, be sure you check out which room you will be in.

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 suite. Service by all the staff was very good. Our only complaint was the bathroom. The configuration was odd and awkward. The sink was just off the sleeping area but the toilet and shower were up a floor. Seriously. Three giant steps up. And the toilet faced a wall and was very, very close. Knees to wall close. We would definitely stay here again but would choose another space to avoid this weird bathroom design.

Room Tip: If steps are an issue then avoid the Acorn Suite because the bathroom is up a floor.

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 times from the inn, which was no problem. The Emerald Iguana Inn is truly a hidden gem in a quaint little town. Can't wait to stay there again!

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.
