“Chill out in style”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

The Blue Iguana is just a great place to relax. The slightly cluttered rooms have an "at home" feel and you can just settle in. You can sit outside your room, sit by the pool and just vegetate. It's a little close to the road and you can hear the Harleys and other noisy vehicles pass by on the weekends, but unless there are loads (which we heard) it's not a problem. The breakfast is fine and you can sit outside to eat it. All in all, a great place, not to be missed if you need to stay in the area

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back, away from the road.

My fiancé and I visited Ojai for a wedding last weekend (7/6-7-8) and stayed in Room 104, a Deluxe King Room complete with ample clean space, a comfortable bed, mini kitchen, fireplace, and private patio. Our room was great and we really enjoyed our stay. It was privately situated towards the back of the property, and our secluded patio could be closed off from the communal walkways throughout the property. Our only two complaints were a very slow-draining shower/bathtub and faulty coffeemaker. The property itself was wonderfully charming with its Spanish architecture, well maintained grounds, and a Blue Iguana statue reminiscent of Parc Güell. We had other friends staying at the property, and each room had its own unique charm and characteristics. The inn also has a good Continental breakfast and a very relaxing pool and jacuzzi area. The Blue Iguana Inn is nicely located about 2.5 miles from Downtown Ojai shops and restaurants.

There aren't many choices in Ojai, but we would stay here again for its value, personal touch, charm, and character. Notwithstanding outside personal factors, our room and stay at this Ojai oasis were very conducive to romance and relaxation and we had a nice little weekend getaway from LA.

Dog friendly, and only about an hour and a half north of LA, The Blue Iguana is a hidden gem. Over the last 10 years we've stayed there half a dozen times and the thing that surprises me is that it keeps getting better. The folks who work there go out of their way to make your stay easy and relaxing. The rooms, suites, and cottages are tastefully decorated and cozy. The grounds invite you to sit out and enjoy the tranquility and beauty.
