    Small hotel, colorful with unique presentation.

    We were not shown the amenities, how to access them nor told about the adjacent noisy highway. While looking for the jacuzzi which was about ten feet from our door, I tripped in the dark over furniture around the pool without lighting. I was, of course, frightened over this severe fall which we thought could have been a break, and greeted with such casualness when I asked for ice for the injuries. I could not understand her lack of concern. After icing my leg for an hour we went to the jacuzzi for relaxation benefits. In the jacuzzi, we stepped on our insteps across a filter that was sharply broken for about eight inches. Went back to the room to nurse my injuries with ice, again. When I approached the day clerk in the morning, she showed appropriate concern immediately and called maintenance personnel.

    The inn embodies the flavor of Ojai. The rooms are wonderfully decorated, and the bed is the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. It's just a lovely place, from top to bottom.

    Very picturesque with a south of the border look and beautifully kept grounds.

    Blue Iguana felt like a small boutique hotel. The design was lovely and it was quiet. The rooms were extremely clean and we loved the tile floors. The grounds were also lovely and relaxing.

    The inn is charming and the staff is very friendly especially Tara. She was a great source of information and made it a pleasant stay.

    Too close to the road (street noise). Air conditioning not working properly. No water pressure. Bed was a bit soft.

    This is a very comfy, yet elegant establishment. Highest quality furnishings, great ambience and amenities. We felt like we were in our own country estate, yet close to amazing restaurants, cafes and boutiques. Great location with Santa Barbara, Solvang and Ventura nearby. Only 20 minutes to beach.

    Charming, quiet, could be romantic. Large, comfortable room. Only thing missing was the hairdryer. Select room away from front of hotel to avoid traffic noise. Select room with private patio area. Great price for a nice place including breakfast. Fitness center in town for very reasonable price from hotel. Can have spa treatments in room if choose. Beds very comfortable. Need car to get into town only 5 minutes away.

    No hairdryer in room.

    The two room rental was great but the location was not. It was too close to the highway and the noise was annoying especially in the early morning hours. The pool was lovely and the service was wonderful as well. Next time we will ask about the location of the room because it makes a big difference when you stay in the back part of the property.

    Very good

    loved that the cluster of buildings were all charming with lots of character. not one of the rooms looked the same. the decor was great inside and matched the beautiful complex. loved the private patio / garden of casa alegra. the detached unit in the rear felt very secluded and filled with nature. also had a nice dip in the pool / hot tub.

    would like an option to upgrade to softer towels. b-fast on the second day was much worse than the first day (less variety of yogurt, no oranges, no soy milk, no bananas). would love to have more local fruit! also couldn't access the wifi from the room, had to step outside to the patio for signal. but all in all, we loved the whole experience and can't wait to come back for another visit :)

    I was surprised by the size of the room - there was a full size living room and an eat-in kitchen besides a big bedroom with a large bathroom. The bed was wonderful and such nice linens. The grounds are very nice and quiet - there were large grassy areas to sit and enjoy the outdoors. I felt like I was in a quaint Mexican village. I thought the journal left in the room for comments was a nice touch. I will definitely plan on staying here again.
