The Emerald Iguana proved to be the perfect place for a weekend "girls" getaway. So that we could each have a private bedroom we rented two cottages (Raven and Lilypad). Both have small kitchens, living rooms, are well-located on the property, and give a sense of privacy. Overall, Lilypad feels newer, brighter, and is better for gathering together. Its second bedroom, however, is a loft with a steep, circular staircase leading down to the second bath –– not good for women of a certain age. So, two people had to share a bedroom with two beds. Raven is single story. The bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms were more than adequate, but it is not as open and airy as Lilypad. The pool and hot tub were clean and comfortable with lots of chairs and umbrellas nestled among the flowers and shrubs. Breakfast was a real treat with yogurt, bagels, fresh fruit and juice, boiled eggs, pastries, as well as plentiful hot tea and coffee. The staff that we met in the Reception area were very helpful. They provided maps, directions, suggestions, and a bowl of Jelly Bellies. Although we did not take advantage of any of the spa opportunities in Ojai, they were quite willing to assist with reservations. The Inn is in a residential area that is an easy walk into town for shopping and excellent restaurants. The setting was ideal for a girls getaway, and I would also recommend it highly to couples.

Room Tip: If you need two private bedrooms and don't like to negotiate stairs between a bedroom and bathroom, avoid Lilypad Cottage. i

We booked the Raven room for one night. To our surprise , it was an oasis of peace. After a long work day, we so enjoyed the comfort of the whole environment ! The breakfast is fresh and yummy served in the pool patio, nice. I loved the art on the walls and the bed was comfortable. The feel in General is relaxing. I will defiantly be back to enjoy more that!

There were 10 of us. We had a very fun time. This place is a little reserved for a few in our group. As it's very very quiet. And we were loud at the pool until 10pm. And a few of the 20 something in our group were a little crazy for this place. They probably should be in Miami for that kind of craziness. But for me and most of the group PERFECT!! Very beautiful unique rooms

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived after sunset at this lovely inn.

Tucked in a residential hood in Ojai, just a few blocks from town, this lovely hotel is a real find.

The lovely Pilar greeted me at the check in and showed me to my room. I stayed in "Frog" and is perfect. One large bedroom and a super huge living room and kitchen. There's also a beautiful patio area. I could have stayed a month.

The property has a nice pool area and breakfast buffet. It's not a huge hotel/inn, but that's the charm.

Top grade for service, privacy and romantic potential. The staff is professional, friendly and will go the extra mile to make things perfect.

Can't wait to go back for another adventure.

Thank you!

Room Tip: The website has some very nice pics.

Emerald Iguana is our new perfect place in Ojai! We totally fell in love with the place from the moment we arrived. We had to get away for just one night (last minute, same day kind of thing) and we found this little yet beautiful hotel on Kayak. It's almost like something out of a story book! Nestle into the small hills and surrounded by trees, its the perfect get away! We stayed in the Grasshopper room, it was tastefully decorated, had a small private patio. The service was great, the swimming pool was really nice, specially at night with all the candle lighting. Loved, loved loved the Emerald Iguana so much that we booked our Anniversary in August already!
