Really enjoyed our stay at Blue Iguana. Had the King Suite #5, with King bedroom, full size futon sofa/ bed and full kitchen. Quiet, peaceful location. Entire room sparkling clean and neat. Perfect for us and our 2 girls 8 and 11. Everything we could need in nicely decorated and colorful bathroom. Very convenient to have the little snacks and...

Before booking I read the one- two- and three-starred reviews on Tripadvisor. I convinced myself they were all written by problem lodgers or extremely picky people. I no longer think that. PROS Beautiful facilities. The grounds are lovely. The rooms are furnished with artistic elegance. Our suite was pleasant and roomy. The king-sized bed, in particular, was large and comfortable....

We are sorry this guest did not fully enjoy their stay at the Blue Iguana. We make every effort to provide the best possible product and service, thus our check-in form does list property policies, especially for guests staying with their dogs. We keep our kitchens stocked with a basic set of pots, pans and cookware, although additional cookware items...

The room itself was beautiful, fitted with every amenity, from the plumped pillows to the coffee and snacks. Our room was quiet, in the back with a lovely bamboo screen in a carefully landscaped environment. The staff was attentive and very helpful. Amazingly inexpensive, at least for our timing (just before Thanksgiving).

My sister, niece and I got a big two bedroom suite, with a large living room, and a small kitchen. Very reasonable! Perfect for a quick trip out of LA. We did the hot tub, then ordered dinner in... and just laughed all night long! Couldn't have been better!

Wanting a peaceful Halloween night getaway, the boyfriend and I stayed here and just LOVED it. I can't wait to come back! Just off the main highway in Ojai, it's a quaint compound of many outbuildings. Our room was right next to the pool and jacuzzi. We enjoyed a lovely evening dip in the jacuzzi and the pool looked immaculate...

My 2 adult daughters and I stayed at the Blue Iguana while attending the Ojai Yoga Crib. We had 2 separate rooms on the same floor in the back of the hotel. Our rooms were spacious, cozy and clean, with mini-kitchens and nice amenities in the bathroom. The staff is over-the-top helpful. We enjoyed our continental breakfast in their cozy...

I have stayed at the Blue Iguana Inn four times this year in different rooms each time. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces are just lovely and comfortable.

The Blue Iguana Inn is very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful with singing birds, the staff is pleasant & helpful. Especially enjoyed the private courtyard, but may trade it next time for a full kitchen. Our room was spacious, quiet & clean. The bed was comfortable, sleeping in was no problem. It's close to town and makes a great base...
