Bed was comfy, air conditioning was available in the living quarters as well as the bedroom. The kitchen sink was a bit small to clean pans in but the grounds and great service made up for it. Breakfast was hot & ready at the crack of dawn and we have decided to make this our go-to spot for our anniversary...

My husband and I came to Ojai for our friend's wedding and stayed at the Blue Iguana. We loved everything about this place. All of the employees were so welcoming and we loved the comfort and amenities in our room. You can even borrow movies from the front desk! The breakfast was perfect and we loved all the options for...

Great location, clean and friendly. Everything was great. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. Close enough to town to get to restaurants easily, far enough away so you're not in the hubbub of traffic.

We had a nice weekend stay on a 90-degree weekend. The room we were given was huge, very comfortable and very well air-conditioned. Front desk staff was extremely helpful. Definitely recommend. The only negatives were the small, outdated shower and the AC unit blew air essentially right over the bed. But with the outdoor heat, we were comfortable in the...

Last weekend I stayed at the Hacienda House at the Blue Iguana with 4 friends for a girls weekend. We had a great time! The house is really spacious, beautifully decorated and very quiet with its own separate patio that we enjoyed for hours. The Blue Iguana is a really a special little gem in Ojai and I'm looking forward...

Beautiful hotel with comfortable, clean and quite rooms. The pool area is very nice, a little oase. The breakfast was great with eggs and everything we like. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We like this hotel very much and hope to come back soon.

A real gem in Ojai! Beautiful grounds, helpful staff, good breakfast and well appointed supreme king room. Close to the downtown area with an easy walking path directly across the road. You cannot go wrong here!

This was a gem of a hotel! The prices were pretty decent for the area, it was about 150 per night for a double queen room. Super comfortable beds, great pool and hot tub, and very friendly staff. The wifi signal was a little sketchy in-room, but this is kind of a place to get away from it all, so...
