The Emerald Iguana Inn in Ojai has been our favorite getaway spot for several years now. It is the most beautiful, restful accommodations we have ever found anywhere in all of our travels. The rooms and cottages are private, quiet, tastefully decorated with wonderful artwork from local artists. The bedding is very comfortable, the pool and jacuzzi are a welcome relief for our travel weary bones, and the continental breakfast is delicious and ample.

Room Tip: The entire Inn is situated on the cul-de-sac, literally on the edge of town. (Still, it's only a short walk a few blocks to the downtown stores and restaurants.) Privacy and Quiet is carefully nurtured here. Every room and cottage is quiet and private. You can't miss on any room selection at the Emerald Iguana.

One of the best getaway weekends. Excellent facility and service. Definitely a "need to come back again" kind of place.

We had a girls weekend trip and stayed at the Emerald Iguana. We took the Lilypad for 6 people. We had a great time. The place feels tucked away and very intimate, but very close to downtown as well. We love the vegetation at the property. The breakfast is great. We especially loved the quiche. The only imperfection is that the mattresses aren't the best. It's okay in terms of comfort, but if your sleeping partner moves a bit, all the motions do transfer. Also, it'd be a nice addition to provide more music CD options in the unit (there was only 1 CD). I also notice the room didn't smell great when I walked in. It didn't smell bad, but just a stale kind of smell. Adding some nice smell would make a difference in first impression.

Management response:Responded June 22, 2012

We are so pleased our guests enjoyed their stay in the Lilypad Suite! Comments and suggestions from guests such as this are extremely valuable. While we do not have a CD library, the one CD we do offer is complementary to our guests to enjoy at the inn. As for cleaning products, we find our guests prefer non-scented cleaning products rather than those with harsh odors. Our mattresses are inspected regularly and possibly this guests is not accustomed to our memory foam toppers which guests truly love for their luxurious comfort. Many thanks to all our valued guests!

We had a large group gathering (25+ people). Nearly 20 people stayed at the Emerald Iguana. The grounds and rooms are near perfect and the service is wonderful. A nice breakfast and happy hour are included. It is more like a B&B than a hotel. It is conveniently located near central Ojai, a few minutes walk into town. I'd recommend the place to anyone.
