“Wonderful, peaceful place”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

This Inn is so beautiful, peaceful & quiet. The rooms are great & the staff is helpful & pleasant. Great place to spend a few days!!! The room was just like being at home. Can't wait to go back in the fall.

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 loved our recent stay at the Blue Iguana and so did our dog. By no means fancy, but not meant to be. Charming and tasteful, clean and comfortable. Decorated and maintained beautifully! Gardens are lovely and breakfast outside great, Staff very nice and helpful. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: we paid extra to have a kitchen, but never used it. Too many great dining out choices!

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 job with this

Room Tip: Rooms to rear of property would be the preference. Front units may get main road noise.

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!

Room Tip: Love Casita #6, has its own private patio in back.

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 the great photos on their website. We'll be back!

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 would have--they were so comfy! It was especially lovely to be able to make a cup of tea and sit outside on our small front porch in the morning. I was impressed that our two-bed suite cost less than a single bedroom in one of the standard hotels in town. Would absolutely recommend this place for families, friend groups or couples--as long as you're not looking for a place for a late-night party (which we weren't), this spot can't be beat. A little bit of a hike into town on foot, but only a short drive or cheap cab ride away from everything. I'd definitely stay here again if I have the chance!
