“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We were there in June for our daughter's wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean room, comfortable bed, beautiful grounds, nice continental breakfast. Everything: the room, the staff, and everything in between was well-worth going back for.

The Emerald Iquana is a great place to stay. I stayed in a cottage and it was so roomy and cozy. Great service and really enjoyed the stay. I only regret I was only there for one night. I will definately return this time just for fun.

This hideaway was beautifully decorated in a quiet corner of Ojai. Close enough to walk to the shops and restaurants in town, but the decor makes you feel secluded. Nice pool, staff and breakfast. The perfect getaway from the city.

We were in town for a wedding and the Emerald Iguana was recommended. We rented the Raven room which had two separate bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms which were more than adequate, clean. The beds were comfortable and the peace and quiet of the place a welcome surprise during an otherwise hectic weekend. The location is a little bit out of the way, but still within easy walk distance to the main road, shops and restaurants. The breakfast was good and fresh, the pool area very nice and the staff helpful. One little quirk: we were two couples and only when we checked in were we made aware of a quadruple occupancy surcharge; kind of a silly thing I would think when the room can sleep six comfortably..... Would I recommend it? Yes.

The Emerald Iguana proved to be the perfect place for a weekend "girls" getaway. So that we could each have a private bedroom we rented two cottages (Raven and Lilypad). Both have small kitchens, living rooms, are well-located on the property, and give a sense of privacy. Overall, Lilypad feels newer, brighter, and is better for gathering together. Its second bedroom, however, is a loft with a steep, circular staircase leading down to the second bath –– not good for women of a certain age. So, two people had to share a bedroom with two beds. Raven is single story. The bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms were more than adequate, but it is not as open and airy as Lilypad. The pool and hot tub were clean and comfortable with lots of chairs and umbrellas nestled among the flowers and shrubs. Breakfast was a real treat with yogurt, bagels, fresh fruit and juice, boiled eggs, pastries, as well as plentiful hot tea and coffee. The staff that we met in the Reception area were very helpful. They provided maps, directions, suggestions, and a bowl of Jelly Bellies. Although we did not take advantage of any of the spa opportunities in Ojai, they were quite willing to assist with reservations. The Inn is in a residential area that is an easy walk into town for shopping and excellent restaurants. The setting was ideal for a girls getaway, and I would also recommend it highly to couples.

Room Tip: If you need two private bedrooms and don't like to negotiate stairs between a bedroom and bathro...

We booked the Raven room for one night. To our surprise , it was an oasis of peace. After a long work day, we so enjoyed the comfort of the whole environment ! The breakfast is fresh and yummy served in the pool patio, nice. I loved the art on the walls and the bed was comfortable. The feel in General is relaxing. I will defiantly be back to enjoy more that!
