We had the pleasure of staying here one night on a trip back from Santa Barbara. It is located away from the rush of everything with beautiful spacious rooms that were spotless. The rates are reasonable especially for that large of a room with sitting area, comfy beds, a refrigerator, microwave, and full kitchen! The grounds are meticulous; some of...

Everything about this place is top notch. There is great attention to detail in every aspect. The rooms are comfortable & well appointed. Everyone we dealt with on the staff was friendly & helpful. Very nice continental breakfast in the morning. And a great rate for this terrific place. We'll be back!

We can't rave enough about our stay at the Blue Iguana Inn. We live in Oak View and needed a place last minute for a few days during a remodel and called and spoke to Lauren. She couldn't be nicer and more accommodating and set us up with our 2 dogs in a very nice cottage. We were so impressed...

My family stayed at the Blue Iguana while attending my daughter's wedding a private ranch in Ojai. The accommodations were excellent. Beautiful architecture and landscaping and rooms are quaint. Only suggestion is to open breakfast area at 6 or 7 am for the early risers.

This is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the aesthetics of Ojai. The inn, the grounds, the unique tile work, and the decor of the rooms all harmonize perfectly and make you feel you've entered a very tranquil oasis within California.

Spacious, comfortable, clean rooms with a nice breakfast buffet included. Lovely grounds and excellent maintenance and cleanliness. Would not hesitate to return. Starting with the colorful Blue Iguana Fountain you soon see what an enchanting place is this motel. All rooms have a nice courtyard or balcony. They also have a whole guest house that is available for a larger...

We had a major water leak in our home and had to find a place to stay immediately! The people at the Blue Iguana not only found us a great place to stay but were concerned and always asked as to our progress. We stayed almost 7 weeks.....and yes we would go back for a real vacation in a heart...

Great weekend at Blue Iguana! Room was spacious, comfortable and nicely appointed. Breakfast was less that appealing but still nice that they offer. Be aware of their strict check out policy at 11am. At 11:10am a staff member was actually rude enough to be knocking on our door! We felt rushed and would never take advantage of their in room...

The Blue Iguana Inn was perfect for a stay in Ojai. The accommodations were perfect. We stayed in a suite that has a terrace with lovely mountain views, gas fire place, complete kitchen and king sized bed room. The pool and hot tub looked very inviting and nicely situated. The continental breakfast had many selections and the areas available to...
