We stayed for three nights in a King Suite. The suite was in the back and had two patios...one in front and one in the back. Plenty of room for relaxing and good access to town. Breakfast buffet was adequate, but nothing to write home about. Staff was friendly, service was good, but unobtrusive.

We average about 50 nights a year in hotels around the world and the Blue Iguana is one of the most delightful and unique properties we've ever experienced. We stayed in the Hacienda Suite which was basically like having a private southwestern home in the beautiful Ojai Valley. There is a lot of attention to detail (fairy lights in the...

We stayed at Blue Iguana for several days in April, 2014. Location is right on the main road into town, ask for a room or casita away from the road (there are many further back that are quiet and more private). The 1st few are right at the entrance with a view of parked cars and lots of traffic in...

Very clean. Staff was friendly. Nice breakfast in the morning, with plenty of choices. They were kind enough to call us immediately when we'd left our computers in the nightstand. Now on our list of favorite places. Just charming.

My husband and I had the most lovely stay at the Blue Iguana Inn. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and we loved our little "suite" - we had a bedroom, a living room and a kitchen, as well as a back patio and front porch. It was like a home away from home. It felt cozy...

A soft mattress, other than that the place was great. But I couldn't get a decent night's sleep. I've never been to a hotel where the mattress was soft. Everything else, above expectations. That's a new one for me.

Had a great stay here in May, 2014... the grounds are very nice... the room was perfect. A tremendous and affordable place to stay in Ojai. The golf courses in Ojai are very high quality... really fun and enjoyable to play. Ojai is a hidden gem, a great getaway from LA.

We loved our recent stay at the Blue Iguana and so did our dog. By no means fancy, but not meant to be. Charming and tasteful, clean and comfortable. Decorated and maintained beautifully! Gardens are lovely and breakfast outside great, Staff very nice and helpful. Can't wait to go back!

We were pleasantly surprised how great the Inn was. Very clean, well appointed, Our room was very large with everything you would need. Balconies are great places to sit and relax. Sitting outside for breakfast was delightful. Landscaping is lovely. Mosaic Iguana in front of office and Sea Serpent around spa are great eye catchers. Owners have done a great...
