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...

This Thanksgiving was my third visit to the Emerald Iguana. As always it is a beautiful, tranquil experience with excellent service. It is tucked away on a residential street for ultimate privacy yet so close to all Ojai has to offer - a hidden gem.

My husband and I just enjoyed two amazing nights at the Emerald Iguana Inn. This place really exceeded our expectations -- it was so beautiful during the day and the night (with twinkle lights!). The Feather Room was exactly what we needed: comfy king bed, spacious bathroom with two sinks and a great shower, adorable patio, cozy fireplace with arm...

I grew up in Ojai and visit family often. I have stayed at the sister property, The Blue Iguana, several times but this was my first time at the Emerald Iguana. There is no other hotel that can give you the authentic Ojai experience like the Emerald Iguana. It is exactly like living in Ojai might be if someone cleaned...

My GF and I have stayed at the Iguana properties at least 4 times now...They are always so accommodating. Amazing staff. Lovely suites that come with everything you might need. They are also walking distance to the main street. We will be back over and over.
