A comfortable bed is my plum line for any hotel, and The Blue Iquana bed was perfectly comfortable, pristinely clean, and cozy. The grounds are sweet with winding stone paths, twinkling lights, an attractive pool, tile mosaic art everywhere, and lovely trees. The verandahs and walkways are immaculate. Classic architecture and style for the area makes it impossible to forget you are in sunny California. The staff was pleasant, breakfast was fine standard continental fare. I'd return again if ever in Ojai.

Just finished my second stay at the Blue Iguana. Both times were for personal retreat and relaxation. The rooms, grounds, staff and atmosphere are perfect for both. Rarely left the property on either trip but left renewed and restored. Much thought and planning has gone into making guests feel special. The grounds at night are magic. The shaded garden areas, pool and my room balcony gave me no reason to go anywhere else. Very friendly and gracious staff. Thanks so much. Maura

Room Tip: Choose a room according to the amount of time you will spend there. Some fireplaces, private garden areas, kitchens. All very special.

What a gem of a place -- and there really is a beautiful blue iguana right near the entrance. Very private and serene; easy to forget that you are in town. We had our own private patio! Our room was so clean that it felt like home, and someone had thought everything out -- anything I wanted was at hand. The staff was the best: housekeeping was never intrusive and the desk was very efficient about in-room spa arrangements. We were there 3 delightful days and I hated to leave.

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 of an old rental apartment...although if you staying a long time its nice that they have this option.

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!
