I titled this review of the Blue Iguana Inn, a win-win situation because that's what it is; a delightful accommodation experience at a very reasonable price. The place is singular in its environment, meaning it is not a cookie cutter, generic atmosphere. My husband and I, needed to unwind and relax for a weekend and this place delivered. The gardens all around the property appear lovingly tended; mission style, colonial Mexican-Taos architecture and details add to the charm which are very appropriate for the Ojai vibe. We loved the resident "iguanas"; whimsical creatures sculpted with colorful tiles. The staff was friendly and unstressed. Our room was number 105, in a building at the rear of the property. It had a comfortable, king bed, kitchenette, bathtub/shower combo in the bathroom. The room decor was appropriately ecclectic without it seeming cluttered and I just loved the arched doorway to the closet and bathroom area. Exposed beams, and light colored wood furniture completed the look. The large window looked out into a large, well manicured lawn, framed by oak trees and communal patio tables and chairs.The room was accessed through a double door entrance and we had our own little patio, table and umberella. The pool area has a hot tub as well which we enjoyed and the continental breakfast they provided was ample. This is a lovely place and the price is very fair. We would stay here again, in a heartbeat.
