“serine and relaxing”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We found this place as we drove into Ojai, had no plans for hotel and very glad we made our choice to stay there.
The good: very clean and eye pleasing landscaping, great back yard-loan with beautiful old oak tree (our baby had fun running around), good continental breakfast with good quality condiments, coffee strong, bagels also good and healthy options, variety of fruit. even though the place is right on the highway, the noise is cancelled by the fence and the trees. If you are on the back you can't hear anything. Overall the outdoors is very pleasant and relaxing, each room has chairs and table to have a nice eve-out with a glass of vino and a good friend. SPA worked well and the area was very clean and updated. Rooms are good size, with good linens, comfortable beds, tv, dvd and bathrobes. Bathrooms are clean with updated and good quality tub, sink and toilet.
Needs an improvement: the heater once turned on was very dusty and it took a couple of hours for the dust to clear out, the heater is an old wall heater and AC is a wall AC. This is the only thing that was a bit inconvenient.
Otherwise extremely good experience. Looking forward coming back this Spring to catch the green rolling hills and everything blooming.

Room Tip: I did not like the 1bedroom with a kitchen...although the bedroom was nice, the kitchen reminded me...

My husband, son and I needed an easy place for an overnight visit in Ojai. The Blue Iguana was perfect. We stayed in a Suite #1 and it was perfect - a 2 bedroom. Plenty of space. Great prorch for coffee in the morning. We will definitely be back. I hear the suites in the back of the property are beautiful and have a great view of the mountains. Great spot!

This classy inn was unique in design with great decore and nice bed linens and great staff. One night the electricity went off in the area. The staff was cool and helpful, getting all rooms flashlights and candles and checking on everyone. The continental breakfast was just enough. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Room 1 was roomy with two bedrooms but next to a main street so was a little noisy.

Had a hard time tracking down the front desk personnel a few times, but beds were immensely comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was pretty good too, though something hot would be nice ... All in all, I would definitely stay again.

We loved this place! It was our first trip to Ojai and weren't we lucky to end up in room #206 at the Blue Iguana! This room is upstairs in the back and was amazingly beautiful. It's huge, with a separate sitting room and large bedroom. Included is a cooking area with table and chairs and all the basic amenities--plus lots of snacks to choose from at reasonable prices. Wonderful, comfy bed, cozy fireplace, TV, and not one but two private balconies to sit outdoors and enjoy the perfect temperature and pleasant views. We extended our wine and cheese hour to two hours as it was just too nice to get up and go out to dinner! Beautiful, unique, charming, quiet and peaceful. We would definitely recommend this inn to others and really hope to return soon for a longer than one-night stay.

My wife and I have visited Ojai three times in two years. Twice we've stayed at the Blue Iguana and once at the Emerald Iguana. Most recently we stayed in a spacious, warm room in the Blue Iguana for New Years. It was only moments from our destination (the local country club) and a three-minute drive to town. The room was too big to be cozy but you got that feeling anyway. Bedding, etc. was perfect. Kitchen was Spartan but fully appointed.

Room Tip: The Web site has photos.

only stayed one night, but really enjoyed this place. Stayed in room #206, and the pictures on the website don't do it justice. Place was huge, felt more like an apartment than a hotel room. Two great balconies, with access to a third on the roof. We stayed a night before going on a boat trip to the Channel Islands, and it worked out perfectly.
