We were just staying for one night so opted for the standard King room which was lovely but too near the road to be as quiet as we would have liked for a longer stay. The bed and bedding were beautiful, comfortable and plush. The room was spotless and provided everything we needed for our stay, robes, plush towels, toiletries,...

We stayed here in room 1, a 2 bedroom suite, recently. The grounds and room are beautiful. Unfortunately the manager felt she had to single me out by asking to talk with me while I was in the jacuzzi. I am not sure what her point was.....She warned me that since my son and his girlfriend were not registered guests...

From the moment I arrived on the grounds to the moment I left, the service and ambiance were exactly what I wanted. Staff was polite, friendly and helpful. But also, unobtrusive. Part of the joy of bing in Ojai is the secluded bonding you have with nature. My lovely room was uber comfortable, well-stcoked had a generous, lovely garden with...

The Blue Iguana is fun, friendly, very clean, well-maintained, and shows the owners' concern for every detail . The attentiveness of the staff and management makes for a flawless stay. The suites are roomy enough for several days of feeling at home - or wishing home was so tastefully furnished. Our suite included a full kitchen, complete with farm-style table,...

The grounds and buildings of Blue Iguana Inn were indeed Bohemian as described on its website and we got the sense that this was the kind of place, on a dark desert highway, which The Eagles may have been referring to as "Hotel California" instead of Beverly Hills Hotel in urban LA. So the first sight of the hotel was...

We spent only one night at the Blue Iguana Inn unfortunately, but there is no doubt we would return. Staying at a smaller property is not everyone, but we felt very relaxed and at home in the well designed rooms. They were spacious and comfortably furnished with pieces that don't give it that hotel room feel. We had a wonderful...

My wife and I had spent the prior week visiting family in San Diego and going to a reunion in LA and wanted to have the last night for ourselves. We were wandering north and decided to check out Ojai. When we got within a few miles of town my wife went online to look for a place to stay....

The Blue Iguana is a lovely southwestern style inn, not a 4 Seasons for example, but very nice. The furnishings were warm, carpet American Indian design, very clean & the beds were great. The bathroom wasn't updated with granite, etc., but it was fine. Judging from the room we stayed in there is no need to spend more money on...

We loved our room close to the pool and Jacuzzi plus all the landscaping and tiled iguana art. Upon our arrival, a hummingbird was standing on one of the iguana fountains, drinking water off the tongue!

Bed was comfy, air conditioning was available in the living quarters as well as the bedroom. The kitchen sink was a bit small to clean pans in but the grounds and great service made up for it. Breakfast was hot & ready at the crack of dawn and we have decided to make this our go-to spot for our anniversary...
