We stayed here 2 nights at the end of September and would return to the Emerald Iguana in a heartbeat. Located at the edge of a quiet residential area, we enjoyed pleasant walks through the neighborhood to the main part of town. It was very warm when we were there, but the Inn is so shaded and quiet that the...

Reviewed 25 August 2016

Stayed here for the first time for our annual girls' weekend. It will now be our destination for next year's weekend! Everything about the Inn is top notch, from the staff who couldn't be more friendly and helpful, to the special artistic touches in each room and throughout the whole property. Breakfast is included and is a lovely spread; the...

This Thanksgiving was my third visit to the Emerald Iguana. As always it is a beautiful, tranquil experience with excellent service. It is tucked away on a residential street for ultimate privacy yet so close to all Ojai has to offer - a hidden gem.

My husband and I just enjoyed two amazing nights at the Emerald Iguana Inn. This place really exceeded our expectations -- it was so beautiful during the day and the night (with twinkle lights!). The Feather Room was exactly what we needed: comfy king bed, spacious bathroom with two sinks and a great shower, adorable patio, cozy fireplace with arm...

I grew up in Ojai and visit family often. I have stayed at the sister property, The Blue Iguana, several times but this was my first time at the Emerald Iguana. There is no other hotel that can give you the authentic Ojai experience like the Emerald Iguana. It is exactly like living in Ojai might be if someone cleaned...

My GF and I have stayed at the Iguana properties at least 4 times now...They are always so accommodating. Amazing staff. Lovely suites that come with everything you might need. They are also walking distance to the main street. We will be back over and over.

Nestled right in the heart of Ojai, the Emerald Iguana is Ojai's jewel for sophisticated travelers. Seriously! Surrounded by mature trees, it's got Marc Whitman's signature quickly designs, coupled with upscale furniture, in fully en-suite rooms (many with balconies) which evoke the feel of a calm, spiritual retreat. NO KIDS OR PETS allowed.

Beautiful property, serene, tranquil, magical! We used to live in Ojai and I'd walk past this property often. Every time I walked by I told myself if we ever came back to visit we'd stay there. We finally had the chance this past weekend. We stayed in the Feather Room. It was beautiful. The front office girl was very nice...

Thank you Nichole! The Feather is a one of a kind accommodation - we're so glad you enjoyed it's custom tiled fireplace and private patio. You must have slept so well due to our Nova-Form Mattress Toppers we have in every room. We appreciate your recommendation and hope to see you again soon!

We stayed in the treehouse during our stay. The hotel is located very close to downtown restaurants and activities. The hotel grounds are beautiful! Very quiet and peaceful stay. The room was clean and very comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

The Emerald Iguana Inn is a quiet, elegant, beautiful facility with clever, thoughful architecture everywhere. The rooms and beds were perfect for our romantic get away. The location is perfect if you want to explore Ojai's hiking trails and neighborhoods. It is not a golf resort, but we weren't interested in golf or tennis so it worked for us. We'd...
