The Inn seems a bit fallen out of time and old-fashioned. Our room was lovely and very spacious, located on the upper floor. The Inn claims to have a fitness room but this is a bit of an exaggeration for this tiny basement room with no windows or AC. Breakfast is very good but does not justify the high price... More

Wow so ausome elagant and charming. This place is fit for royalty. Wow....nothing is out of place here. Very impressive and would love to come back. I was shocked to find that the room rate was not over $300 a night for the splendor of this place.

Stopping by on our way to Santa Barbara, we had a lovely lunch in their outdoor restaurant over looking the golf course. Food great, fair prices. The hotel looked lovely even though we were just having lunch.

We love coming up to the Santa Ynez area and this is our go to place. The staff is friendly, the rooms spacious and the included breakfast delicious. They also have an afternoon wine tasting and nigh time dessert. Very full service.

The Santa Ynez Inn is a great idea for a romantic getaway that just didn't fit our taste. It was built to a Victorian design in 2001 as a B&B to provide a charming experience to guests. The main public spaces are the breakfast room and the library, which are delightful if they are quiet and refined. The rooms were... More

We have spent many nights in Inns and B&B's, and this is neither. They completely understaffed during our visit. We splurged on the Jr. Suite which is a beautiful room. Fireplace- did not work. They FINALLY fixed. TV- did not work. Called front desk and asked that they look at while my wife and I at dinner at Hitching Post.... More

The Santa Ynez Inn is an upscale B&B well deserving of its four star rating from AAA. Everything was expected of the experience from the friendly and profession reception to the efficient check out. The room was well appointed ad comfortable, turn down service was professional, and breakfast was very good. Somewhat expensive but you get what you pay for.

The Santa Ynez Inn is a wonderful small hotel in the middle of Santa Ynez. It is well located with several excellent restaurants nearby. Beautiful, spacious rooms. They reminded us of a fine European hotel. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very large with both a whirlpool tub and a large walk in shower. Unfortunately, there were several... More

Well. What can I say about this 5* luxury hotel? This hotel matches the best of the best anywhere in the world. It looks and behaves like a country Manor House in France or Italy - but this is better. This truly is home from home. The bedrooms and bathrooms are oversized with the finest bedding etc. What a treat... More

My wife and I love the Santa Ynez Valley and visit once a year or so. When the Santa Ynez Inn was new we stayed a couple of times. It was five star - no doubt about it. But now, after not staying the last few years, it felt like the pride is gone. Afternoon hor d'oeuvres and morning breakfast... More
