Great weekend at Blue Iguana! Room was spacious, comfortable and nicely appointed. Breakfast was less that appealing but still nice that they offer. Be aware of their strict check out policy at 11am. At 11:10am a staff member was actually rude enough to be knocking on our door! We felt rushed and would never take advantage of their in room...

The Blue Iguana Inn was perfect for a stay in Ojai. The accommodations were perfect. We stayed in a suite that has a terrace with lovely mountain views, gas fire place, complete kitchen and king sized bed room. The pool and hot tub looked very inviting and nicely situated. The continental breakfast had many selections and the areas available to...

We checked in on Friday, and front desk staff was very friendly, and gave us some valuable recommendations for the area. The grounds are very appealing, with a southwest flair, and great landscaping. The grounds are gorgeous, and the vibe is nice. Our room was spacious and nicely furnished. The pool area was charming, a nice place to relax and...

Nice rooms. The location and greenery are beautiful. The front desk staff were not polite and need to learn how to speak politely to guests. The continental breakfast was terrible. Stale bagels. Boxed cereal. Bad pastries. Marginal Fruit. The wifi was completely unreliable.

The blue iguana sculpture winds around a beautiful and warn spa--we loved this. Checking in was more officious than friendly but they got through the rules section well enough. You get the feeling that the staff is very protective of the property. You gotta watch those elders! Breakfast was a joke. Guests were clamoring about searching cupboards for stuff like...

We are pleased this guest appreciated our property. We do everything possible to insure every guest has the best possible stay. We are sorry that our complimentary Continental Breakfast did not meet their expectations. Unfortunately, due to restrictions imposed on us by our local Health Department we are only able to serve a very limited variety of products. In an...

Spent one night at the Blue Iguana inn. The setting was very quiet, peaceful and a had a beautiful surrounding area. The hotel was spotless, staff were great and had really had a very enjoyable time. Rooms were large with the most comfortable beds...a sitting area with a mini kitchen. Would definitely good back again.

If you're looking to get away for a few days and just enjoy a peaceful atmosphere, this is the place. Facilities are kept very clean and are extremely comfortable. It's super clsoe to Ojai's shopping area, and a mere bike ride away from the beach. The pictures don't do it justice. I loved it.

We loved the room and the grounds, and the fact that it was a bit outside of town. The shower had lots of pressure and hot water and was great after hitting the area hiking trails. The hot tub was also very nice though the chlorine level felt a little higher than comfortable

We stayed one night in Ojai and were pleased with the accommodations. It rained heavily when we were there so we didn't have the opportunity to explore the grounds. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and breakfast was simple but good. Our neighbors were noisy and the staff quickly came and quieted them down when we called. Room...

Upon arriving at this Inn, I encountered the young lady behind the check inn desk was polite but very parochial in nature... not warm and inviting but polite enough... she seemed most concerned with letting me know what the rules were as she recited her litany and to please sign my initials the sign in sheet about a half-dozen times......
