Our experience with the Blue Iguana Inn was perfect from the first phone conversation. They run a first class operation, from the design of the rooms, the maintenance, housekeeping, and the reception staff. No complaints in any area. I can't say enough about this place. We rented one of their deluxe (junior suite) rooms that had a kitchenette and a lovely, private patio. There are many trails and areas to walk or bicycle just outside the door. My husband and I, and our little dog all enjoyed the weekend very much.

Thank you Blue Iguana! I stayed with you 8 years ago and loved it then. My recent visit to Blue Iguana was convenient and soothing. The amenities are perfect. The staff is helpful and polite. The beds and pillows very comfortable. You have expanded your accommodations over the years. The grounds are simply beautiful, and in keeping with the surrounding area.
Thank you again for a pleasant visit to Ojai.

This place was cute and close to town. The rooms were clean. The hot tub was acceptable and the staff seemed friendly despite the snobbishness of the front desk clerk.
We enjoyed the variety of the breakfast offerings. Everything was comfortable. Ample parking. Nice pillows.

Room Tip: Not a bad room in the place!

My Mom and I planned this little visit to Ojai as a get together and to just relax and we were so pleased with our selection of the Blue Iguana. The staff was so friendly and informative, the beds were super plush and comfy and the grounds were just beautiful at every turn. It was so peaceful an serene there and the continental breakfast was delicious. If only the hard-boiled eggs had been warm it would have been perfect. The Inn is just a short drive from downtown Ojai and there's an amazing walking/biking trail right across the street with breathtaking mountain views. This is definitely a place I will bring my husband!

Room Tip: Great size rooms for 2 adults or a family of 4

Although the sister property, the Emerald Iguana, is closer to town,
this is only a 5 minute drive and I find the spacious charm the most
inviting for the greatest value of all the good hotels in Ojai.
