The perfect place for mellowing out, slowing the pace and pampering yourself. This was a girls' getaway vacay and our stay in the Lilypad cottage was perfect for 3 gals. The grounds are lush and inviting, everything beautifully maintained. Free breakfast by the pool and massages and facials given right in your room. Tons of fantastic boutique shops and fine...

What a lovely inn! I would definitely return to this location when staying in Ojai. We stayed in the Toad room, located right next to the pool entrance. The room was advertised as "cozy," which made me think small. However, it is quite roomy. It had everything we would want (in room fridge, comfy bed, and a lovely little front...

We love this place, serene and beautiful. Try to get the "treehouse" above the office. It's a huge room with a high ceiling, windows on two sides surrounded by tall trees, a large bathroom with a separate extra-large old-fashioned tub and separate glass-enclosed shower, plus a comfortable good-sized patio, also in the trees, a great place to sit and read...

In view of the fact that our luggage did not arrive for 48 hours ( still in Europe thanks to the Airline) we needed such a tranquil place. We felt at peace with the world... and a particular thanks to Beth who went out of her way to make sure that someone would be around to receive the luggage should...

The hotel is tucked away and quite inviting. The rooms are comfortable with everything you need to get away from all the noise in the city. I was a solo traveler looking to find some quiet space and tranquility. I took my own movies as well as borrowed the movies form the Inn to slip away and enjoy myself in...

We stayed at the Emerald Iguana Inn in April 2017. The location is great because it's nestled in a neighborhood and off the main road, but in walking distance to everything. The Inn is quiet and very charming. It is the only place I would stay in Ojai. If you are looking for peace, quiet and relaxation this is the...

Took my mom here for a girls get-a-way for her birthday. We stayed in the Treehouse Room which was so cute. My mom loved it. I would tho recommend that in the morning when the maids are getting ready, to be aware that there is a room directly above them and all the talking in the early morning woke us...

Tucked away and well worth finding. Small boutique hotel with gorgeous grounds and beautiful rooms. Ours had a private patio which we enjoyed. So quiet! Very helpful staff, lovely pool, lots of garden details. Comfy bed and a fairly extensive cold continental breakfast. Walkable to town. We really liked it.

Stayed here for a gal's weekend, and we all enjoyed the Raven cottage very much! It was very comfortable for the 4 of us, and we admired the decor and ambience. Continental breakfast was just perfect and we enjoyed the location being so close to DT Ojai. I would reccomend this inn to others for sure.

Our second visit and we will definitely go back. Friendly staff and very quiet location, well off the main street. Easy walk to town center. No kids or dogs, which made the resident cat very happy. Full kitchen was nice although we preferred to dine out. Susanne's is worth a visit.
