We arrived tired and frustrated after an uncomfortable stay at a hotel in Carpinteria. When we got to the Blue Iguana, we found an oasis. The rooms are beautiful and welcoming to a couple of writers and artists looking to escape Los Angeles. It's a short trip into the welcoming and quaint downtown but truthfully, we didn't even want to...

Everything was great. Friendly people at reception, beautiful grounds, generous breakfast and restful in spite of the busy street. Dog friendly which is important to me. I usually stay at the Emerald Iguana but I think I like Blue better especially since I can travel with my dog.

The staff was very helpful and friendly! We stayed at the blue and emerald. Check out could be a little later considering check in is at 3:00. Understand house keeping needs time. The suites were attractive both locations were unique. The grounds were beautiful. Nice private feeling. Coffee filters could be a more rigid the ones u have collapse so...

We stayed again at this fine inn, not much changed from a year ago, but we had forgotten some of its good qualities. The rooms are exceptionally well appointed (an upgrade on the television this year), quiet, luxurious bed, everything works (or almost everything), light breakfast, nice spa and pool, lovely grounds with inviting areas to stroll to, and an...

Every year, my daughter and I get away and spend a weekend together to just relax and catch up with each other. This year we chose Ojai and the Blue Iguana Inn. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite at the Inn and found our accommodations to be almost everything we would want. We would have loved to have had a...

The grounds are lovely. The rooms are clean, comfortable, spacious and attractive. The staff is friendly and attentive. We stayed in the Hacienda Suite, which has a little private garden next to the meadow -- both of which were perfect for our dog. I will definitely return.

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...
