Very clean. Staff was friendly. Nice breakfast in the morning, with plenty of choices. They were kind enough to call us immediately when we'd left our computers in the nightstand. Now on our list of favorite places. Just charming.

My husband and I had the most lovely stay at the Blue Iguana Inn. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and we loved our little "suite" - we had a bedroom, a living room and a kitchen, as well as a back patio and front porch. It was like a home away from home. It felt cozy...

A soft mattress, other than that the place was great. But I couldn't get a decent night's sleep. I've never been to a hotel where the mattress was soft. Everything else, above expectations. That's a new one for me.

Had a great stay here in May, 2014... the grounds are very nice... the room was perfect. A tremendous and affordable place to stay in Ojai. The golf courses in Ojai are very high quality... really fun and enjoyable to play. Ojai is a hidden gem, a great getaway from LA.

We were pleasantly surprised how great the Inn was. Very clean, well appointed, Our room was very large with everything you would need. Balconies are great places to sit and relax. Sitting outside for breakfast was delightful. Landscaping is lovely. Mosaic Iguana in front of office and Sea Serpent around spa are great eye catchers. Owners have done a great...

I have stayed here a few times now, and it is so peaceful. The Casitas are lively, and the plants and flowers are so beautiful. Breakfast in the morning, under the large oak tree is always a special treat!

Located in a very quiet location. Spanish style casitas and grounds are expertly maintained. Immaculate inside and fully equipped with everything you need. Our kitchen had all the essentials. The breakfast was great with lots of choices. Bakery items and fruit was very fresh. Breakfast seating on lawn under oak tree or on the veranda. Beautiful place even prettier than...

My college roommates and I gathered at Blue Iguana last weekend for a wedding in the area. I can't say enough good things about the inn! We loved our suites--between us, we had three different two-beds and a one-bed, all of which were delightfully appointed, clean and comfortable. If I could've taken the bed and sheets home with me, I...
