The Emerald Iguana Inn Hotel Review

: Owned by the same folks as the Blue Iguana Inn, this adults-only inn is within walking distance of Ojai's main street, but manages to maintain an even more peaceful atmosphere than its further out sister property. (Guests here will still need to check in at the Emerald Iguana Inn first, however.) Stone walkways, flower gardens and bubbling fountains lead to semi-detached cottages, featuring artisan rock, copper and wood accents done by local craftspeople. All of the cozy cottages have casually elegant California and Southwestern d├ęcor. Some also have patios or decks, Jacuzzi tubs, gas-burning stoves or even a second loft bedroom. With full kitchens in each, there's almost no reason to ever leave. We especially liked the Peacock Cottage, with its Indonesian furnishings, antique clawfoot tub and Persian rugs. Excellent soundproofing almost guarantees a good night's sleep. Weekly rates start at $1,250, as these inviting cottages can easily accommodate extended stays.
