The hotel is tucked away and quite inviting. The rooms are comfortable with everything you need to get away from all the noise in the city. I was a solo traveler looking to find some quiet space and tranquility. I took my own movies as well as borrowed the movies form the Inn to slip away and enjoy myself in...

We stayed at the Emerald Iguana Inn in April 2017. The location is great because it's nestled in a neighborhood and off the main road, but in walking distance to everything. The Inn is quiet and very charming. It is the only place I would stay in Ojai. If you are looking for peace, quiet and relaxation this is the...

Took my mom here for a girls get-a-way for her birthday. We stayed in the Treehouse Room which was so cute. My mom loved it. I would tho recommend that in the morning when the maids are getting ready, to be aware that there is a room directly above them and all the talking in the early morning woke us...

Tucked away and well worth finding. Small boutique hotel with gorgeous grounds and beautiful rooms. Ours had a private patio which we enjoyed. So quiet! Very helpful staff, lovely pool, lots of garden details. Comfy bed and a fairly extensive cold continental breakfast. Walkable to town. We really liked it.

Stayed here for a gal's weekend, and we all enjoyed the Raven cottage very much! It was very comfortable for the 4 of us, and we admired the decor and ambience. Continental breakfast was just perfect and we enjoyed the location being so close to DT Ojai. I would reccomend this inn to others for sure.

Our second visit and we will definitely go back. Friendly staff and very quiet location, well off the main street. Easy walk to town center. No kids or dogs, which made the resident cat very happy. Full kitchen was nice although we preferred to dine out. Susanne's is worth a visit.

We had a very large two bedroom suite with a very pretty enclosed garden patio. We enjoyed the ambience, and comfortable,quiet setting. The late afternoon wine and snacks were delicious, and breakfast offering very nice. All the rooms are in a lovely garden setting.

Located on a backstreet in the artsy small town of Ojai, this Inn was quiet and felt secluded, but it was just 4 blocks from the restaurants & shops of Ojai's main drag. It was also easy walking distance to nice hiking trails in the Los Padres with gorgeous views out over a valley to the Pacific. Staff were friendly...

I love how peaceful this place is. The property is lush with greenery and so well maintained. The pictures don't reflect how charming this place is. Kid free zone too is a plus. There is a simple breakfast included with your room by the pool as well has wine and cheese happy hour in the lobby. Close proximity to town...

Terrific small hotel. Great service, high quality throughout. Enjoyed the beautiful grounds, the quality breakfast essentials, the hot tub, the whole experience. We stayed in four places during a SoCal holiday with two teen girls... Emerald Iguana was everyone's favorite. Would go out of our way to return here.
