This hideaway was beautifully decorated in a quiet corner of Ojai. Close enough to walk to the shops and restaurants in town, but the decor makes you feel secluded. Nice pool, staff and breakfast. The perfect getaway from the city.

We were in town for a wedding and the Emerald Iguana was recommended. We rented the Raven room which had two separate bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms which were more than adequate, clean. The beds were comfortable and the peace and quiet of the place a welcome surprise during an otherwise hectic weekend. The location is a little bit out of...

The Emerald Iguana proved to be the perfect place for a weekend "girls" getaway. So that we could each have a private bedroom we rented two cottages (Raven and Lilypad). Both have small kitchens, living rooms, are well-located on the property, and give a sense of privacy. Overall, Lilypad feels newer, brighter, and is better for gathering together. Its second...

There were 10 of us. We had a very fun time. This place is a little reserved for a few in our group. As it's very very quiet. And we were loud at the pool until 10pm. And a few of the 20 something in our group were a little crazy for this place. They probably should be in Miami...

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived after sunset at this lovely inn. Tucked in a residential hood in Ojai, just a few blocks from town, this lovely hotel is a real find. The lovely Pilar greeted me at the check in and showed me to my room. I stayed in "Frog" and is perfect. One large bedroom and a...

Emerald Iguana is our new perfect place in Ojai! We totally fell in love with the place from the moment we arrived. We had to get away for just one night (last minute, same day kind of thing) and we found this little yet beautiful hotel on Kayak. It's almost like something out of a story book! Nestle into the...

Good location, great service, large rooms and beautiful pool area. This property is small, a boutique type inn with a warm, friendly feel to it. The staff is extremely helpful in every aspect. We will be back.

Have stayed at the Iguanas before. This time my husband and I chose "Cricket" suite at the Emerald Iguana for our anniversary. Very nice room adjoining the pool area with light and space. 2 story suite with 2 balconies off the bedroom and one patio off the dining nook. One balcony gets western afternoon light and looks out over a...
