The minute you check in you are are in a state of relaxation. As you wander the lush grounds to your room you are catered to with a very helpful and caring staff. The room was superb and very spacious for our needs and the entire grounds evoked a special meditative state.

We had a wonderful experience at the Blue Iguana Inn. I will recommend it highly to others. Thank you for everything. Making a review of two hundred characters is a little annoying. We enjoyed the Farmer's Market and the food was good everywhere. We especially enjoyed the Ojai Cafe Emporium. Doug Potter

This was our last stay before heading home from a 13 day adventure down the California coast. We had an amazing time and stayed in fabulous places all along the way until the Blue Iguana Inn. Upon check-in we were greeted with list of things we can not do instead of a nice hello. We were traveling with our dog...

We are sorry this guest was disappointed with their experience. They had booked the room closest to the road on a sold out Friday afternoon. Upon check-in they asked to be moved but the hotel was fully booked so there wasn't anything else available. We did our best to be welcoming and accommodating. We happily welcome our canine guests but...

This hotel was terrific. The photos that you see online - just like in real life. We were in a room that had two queen beds and they were comfortable. The main issue for us (and why it's not a five star review) is that we were traveling with our 3 and 5 year old children. They are "well behaved"...

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice staff, GREAT king size bed, continental, but good breakfast included. Our room felt like an apartment. Eclectic, beautifully maintained grounds. We were close enough to town to easily get around, but far enough away to avoid the crowd.

Our first visit to Ojai, and we only stayed one night. Loved the quiet feel of the town and the friendly atmosphere. Beautiful well-maintained property. Only problem was that we did not find the room thermostat so it was a bit too warm - hidden behind the TV cabinet. We had our dog along and he was welcome. There is...

We were very pleasantly surprised by this gem. It is really cute and spacey. The room was very clean and decorated with a lot of taste. The little things such as candles made it very cozy. The staff was very helpful and ensured our experience at the Blue Iguana was a unique experience. Will definitely return for the cuteness of...

Our stay at the Blue Iguana was a pleasant surprise. We came to town for our son's wedding and picked the Blue Iguana for our stay on his recommendation. The grounds are very nice. The room was superb! The staff was very accommodating and helpful. We would love to stay here again. After a long trip over from Wisconsin we...

I have several clients in Ojai so I'm there every month or so. I always stay at the Blue Iguana. The rooms are all nicely appointed, beautifully maintained, cozy, and spacious. I'm very picky about noise, so I usually ask for a room in the back of the property, but even the ones in the front are fine. I'm also...

This is a beautiful well maintained property just a few miles outside the heart of Ojai. We booked at the last minute and there was only one of the basic rooms left. It was comfortable and nicely appointed albeit a bit small, but for $159 a night it was a deal. The staff was friendly and accommodating. When we came...
