I had the chance to spend a weekend at this Inn and I was delighted by the experience. The staff was friendly and helpful and the grounds were well-landscaped. The room, decorated in an eclectic California mission style, was clean and comfortable. The management has managed to provide the small details that make a stay more comfortable such as robes...

As always the Blue Iguana lives up to its excellent reputation in cleanliness, accommodations, staff,service, and ambience . I booked our room in less than two weeks before the holiday and we were able to get room 12 (handicap with 2 beds) for the first night and then move two doors down to room 10 for two more nights. In... More

What a Beautiful Surprise of a boutique hotel; it reminded me of being in Santa Fe. The grounds were lush and tree abundant, the service impressive and the decor made your room feel like you were visiting a friend and had your own cottage. Small cons: on a busy road, shower head too high (I'm 5'8 & my hubby 6'2).... More

In sync with the town's vibe and really very pleasant - visually and in creature comforts. Accommodating staff. Memory foam bed. Big pot of coffee in the room! Nice breakfast with al fresco tables. Convenient. My 3rd stay!

We had such a delightful time at the Blue Iguana! From the huge blue mosaic lizard sculpture that greeted us as we walked in, to the refreshing tiled pool where I swam in the moonlight, to the beautifully decorated and maintained room, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The breakfast was plentiful and convenient, and the king size bed was so comfortable.... More

Cute place. Very clean and well maintained throughout. Would've enjoyed and appreciated a suite with living room and kitchen and more rustic decor (to fit with the Ojai theme :)) but needed two beds so only had two available choices and wanted to be situated in the back of the property farther from the highway. Pics are on the website.... More

I stayed at the Blue Iguana Inn while visiting Ojai for a weekend get away. It was a great stay - the rates were good and included a continental breakfast. My room had a private gated patio, small kitchen, fireplace and very comfy bed. The room was very clean, the grounds were well maintained. Plenty of parking and the staff... More

We were there just over night. It is a very nice, comfortable and clean place to stay. The rooms are very well appointed, the beds are very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful. We were there with another couple and they were just as impressed as we were. Our only regret is that it was only one night, wish it was... More

The room was well appointed and comfortable. It had everything I needed. I loved the lush grounds with bamboo trees and rose bushes. The complimentary breakfast was appreciated as a convenient way to grab a bit of something before heading out to explore. I disappointedly did not take advantage of the jacuzzi or pool- I regret that. The housekeeping team... More
