I am a local Ojai resident who recently had last minute, out of town guests visit. We didn't have room at our house for them so we started calling local hotels to find them a place to stay. We really wanted them to be somewhere nice although we knew they were on a tight budget. We called around to the local generic motels for pricing. We also decided to call the Blue Iguana Inn because we knew it was really beautiful, unique, and would be something very special for our guests, although we were pretty sure it would be out of their price range. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that their rooms weren't much more expensive than the local chain motel. In fact our friends were quoted less than a $100.00 per night for a spacious room decorated with antique mexican furnishings and original local artwork. When we took them to check in, we were greeted by a very friendly lady who was helpful in every way. She even gave our friends a complimentary suite upgrade when she found out we were locals. We were all delighted by the beautiful landscaping, so natural and lush, as well as the whimsical garden sculptures and broken tile mosaic "blue iguana" fountain.
My friends just loved their stay. The Blue Iguana was a wonderful, yet econimical, place to introduce them to the magic of the Ojai Valley.
Thanks again - Blue Iguana
