We love this place, serene and beautiful. Try to get the "treehouse" above the office. It's a huge room with a high ceiling, windows on two sides surrounded by tall trees, a large bathroom with a separate extra-large old-fashioned tub and separate glass-enclosed shower, plus a comfortable good-sized patio, also in the trees, a great place to sit and read in the shade.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled as a couple

In view of the fact that our luggage did not arrive for 48 hours ( still in Europe thanks to the Airline) we needed such a tranquil place. We felt at peace with the world... and a particular thanks to Beth who went out of her way to make sure that someone would be around to receive the luggage should we be away from our room. When the luggage eventually arrived the karma surrounding this place made me question whether I needed luggage. So chilled.
We have travelled the world but the atmosphere at breakfast around the pool ( simple as the breakfast was) matched any previous breakfast experience.
Ojai itself is a wonderful place. As Brits wanting to see more of Southern California we had already planned to move on. Wish we had stayed.
Want to really chill... this is the place.

The hotel is tucked away and quite inviting. The rooms are comfortable with everything you need to get away from all the noise in the city. I was a solo traveler looking to find some quiet space and tranquility. I took my own movies as well as borrowed the movies form the Inn to slip away and enjoy myself in the evenings. It is a great place for couples. I did get some odd looks from older couples to see a young woman staying in a oasis by herself - nonetheless, I enjoyed it but next time I will bring a friend to share the experience.

We stayed at the Emerald Iguana Inn in April 2017. The location is great because it's nestled in a neighborhood and off the main road, but in walking distance to everything. The Inn is quiet and very charming. It is the only place I would stay in Ojai. If you are looking for peace, quiet and relaxation this is the best place! We stayed in the Grasshopper room and it was lovely with a nice seating area outside and a beautiful fireplace. Breakfast was more than enough for us. Don't miss Bart's Books, Suzanne's Cuisine and No So Vita!

Took my mom here for a girls get-a-way for her birthday. We stayed in the Treehouse Room which was so cute. My mom loved it. I would tho recommend that in the morning when the maids are getting ready, to be aware that there is a room directly above them and all the talking in the early morning woke us up. But would definitely come back here again. Very friendly staff.

Tucked away and well worth finding. Small boutique hotel with gorgeous grounds and beautiful rooms. Ours had a private patio which we enjoyed. So quiet! Very helpful staff, lovely pool, lots of garden details. Comfy bed and a fairly extensive cold continental breakfast. Walkable to town. We really liked it.

Room Tip: Tadpole had a private patio and is very secluded and quiet. We loved it.

Stayed here for a gal's weekend, and we all enjoyed the Raven cottage very much! It was very comfortable for the 4 of us, and we admired the decor and ambience. Continental breakfast was just perfect and we enjoyed the location being so close to DT Ojai. I would reccomend this inn to others for sure.
