The Inn is in a quiet residential area of Ojai about a 6 block walk from the main road where you will find excellent supermarkets and restaurants and shops (Locally owned not franchises of national). The grounds are very nice and the and give a secluded feel. Our room which I believe was the acorn suite had a bedroom and...

We decided to get away after Valentine's Day for a couple of days. We've been to Ojai before but never to the Emerald Iguana. We booked a two night stay and got a discounted rate. The property is beautiful. They have rooms that can accommodate two guests or a whole family. Stayed in the Feather room and loved it. Very...

The drive in is beautiful. The face of the property is gorgeous. The little compound is a delicious respite. The rooms are an amazing Spanish revival of tile and carpets and raw wood furniture. If only the service matched the space and the price tag. For more than $300/night, I was disappointed. The hot tub has to be manually heated...

We had a weekend get away with our friends. The Frog suite was even better than the pictures. Spacious with two gas fire places a large living room and a kitchen with everything you need. The staff were great and the grounds are very nice. It is a little Oasis in Ojai. Off the main street so you really feel...

We needed a place to stay for 2 nights while our house was being tented. Although we were in our own town, the Emerald Inn was so comfortable and nice we felt as if we were on vacation. We will definitely recommend it to our out of town guests.

Such a perfect and lovely experience at the Emerald Iguana. Others here have described the serenity and beauty of the grounds and the wonderful attention to detail. I'm just chiming in to add that the Leaf Suite, where we stayed, was beautiful. When I booked it, it was the last room available for our dates and I somehow had the...

We were in the Tadpole room, which was despite its name, plenty big for a couple. We had a big king size bed, a sweet little kitchenette (no microwave tho), a very nice bathroom, and we were steps away from the breakfast room and the hot tub. The room didn't have a lot of windows, but was artfully designed and...

Although I spend more than 170 nights a year in hotels for work, on occasion my decidedly better half needs some time away from the routine of home. Consequently, when we do travel together, I try to find hotels that are a little out of the ordinary and a cut above the garden variety Hilton, Marriott, and Hyatt. Happily, the...

Chose the Emerald Iguana after reading the reviews here (and checking the price of the Ojai Valley Inn). Could not have been happier! On top of saving $250/night, my wife loved the ambiance of this gem. Booked the "Fall into Autumn" package and received an in-room couples massage, along with other treasures including a $50 dining certificate to Suzanne's (that's...

We stayed here 2 nights at the end of September and would return to the Emerald Iguana in a heartbeat. Located at the edge of a quiet residential area, we enjoyed pleasant walks through the neighborhood to the main part of town. It was very warm when we were there, but the Inn is so shaded and quiet that the...
