We stayed one night in Ojai and were pleased with the accommodations. It rained heavily when we were there so we didn't have the opportunity to explore the grounds. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and breakfast was simple but good. Our neighbors were noisy and the staff quickly came and quieted them down when we called. Room...

Upon arriving at this Inn, I encountered the young lady behind the check inn desk was polite but very parochial in nature... not warm and inviting but polite enough... she seemed most concerned with letting me know what the rules were as she recited her litany and to please sign my initials the sign in sheet about a half-dozen times......

The Inn is extremely well done, very clean and great amenities. We enjoyed a day at the Ojai Valley Spa, then drove less than 10 minutes to this beautiful Inn. Very convenient to downtown Ojai and the spa. We loved the Inn! The breakfast was perfect the next morning as well. Will definitely be back!

Firstly, somehow we booked the incorrect date-- we got a call about being no-show, and when we replied that we hadn't traveled there yet, the front desk graciously allowed us to rebook at no charge. Then when we arrived we wanted to move to another room away from the road and the staff was very helpful again.

After a wonderful drive up the Southern California coast, we were greeted by a beautiful blue-tiled iguana fountain as we parked at the Blue Iguana Inn. The Inn was recommended by some friends that we were meeting there for the weekend. Since we had lots of plans for fun, we opted for a suite that would accomodate all of us...

The room was spotless and extremely quiet (I was in Room #5 King Suite). The Blue Iguana peeps were very nice and helpful. This was my first time in Ojai and I just wasn't the biggest fan of the town, and most of the hotels look like converted motels (minus the really expensive ones). Considering that context, the Blue Iguana...

In attending a Contemplative Landscape Photography Retreat, I chose to extend my stay before and after the event which was a good thing. This place is beautiful and even though we had epic rainfall with chilling temps I still feel cozy and warm in my room. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are so clean and being somewhat...

Great little hotel despite the age. Room was very comfortable, service pleasant and not overbearing, good location. Staff gave good restaurant recommendations. Only negative was the breakfast, otherwise a nice alternative to the $500/night fancy hotels.

We were in Room 1 which is the first room when you enter. Wondered about road traffic but it was not a problem. It was a 2-bedroom suite. Plenty of room...a home away from home. I will definitely stay here in the future.

Room was as advertised, but shower handle was extremely hard to turn (my wife couldn't do it) and there were no provisions for anyone older, such as grab bars. Breakfast was totally forgettable, in an unheated room (53F). Furniture in the room was uncomfortable. This place looks like it was built 20 years ago and then never updated. The grounds...

We regret this guest didn't enjoy their stay and was not booked in a room that had proper accommodations for their special needs. They booked through a 3rd party vendor (ie: Expedia or Booking.com) and therefor our staff was unable to insure they had the room that would be most satisfactory for them. We always suggest guests call us directly...
