This has been one of our favorite romantic get away places. They recently changed owners and many of the staff we had met before were gone. The training of new staff seems to be taking place but not the special service and caring from before. Still love the location and facility. Missed the welcome card and candy or wine for... More

We so appreciate you taking the time to write this review. Thank you for making us your getaway to celebrate your anniversary! I was very disappointed to learn that you were not completely delighted with the service you received during your stay. Turnover is part of any business but the key is to ensure that guests feel the same warm... More

This property is settled within The very small town of Santa Ynez - a treat for those who are looking for old Western charm with quiet and surroundings. The Inn itself is extraordinarily well-maintained and groomed both inside and out - one of the concerns I have about such places is the inability or unwillingness of the owners to manage... More

Great service, helpful/friendly staff, and beautiful room. Loved the local wines and cheese served late afternoon, and couldn't resist the red velvet cupcakes and chocolate cookies w/white choc chips, that were served in the evening! It was the perfect place to celebrate our 15th anniversary.

From the moment we walked in the front door, til 4 days later when it closed behind us, we were treated like royalty at the Santa Ynez Inn. The room was spacious, clean, well-appointed and the bathroom was beyond belief with jacuzzi tub and steam shower. Add to that the wine tastings with appetizers every night, desserts before bedtime and... More

I had the great fortune to stay at the Santa Ynez Inn with my mother on a mother-daughter trip to the wine country. Not only was the Inn the height of elegance but the staff was unfailingly gracious and welcoming at every turn. Our rooms were beautifully and luxuriously appointed with every amenity and great attention to detail. We have... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary wine tasting every evening (different wines to taste each night), the complimentary desserts each evening, and the complimentary breakfast each morning. The staff went out of their way to ensure... More

We booked this stay months ago and had to change several times but the staff was always helpful and easy to deal with. Our stay was above expectations. The room was large and well equipped. Everything was provided at not extra cost and was clean, stylish and great to stay in. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. With only two choices... More

I rarely give 5 stars, but will go out on a limb and do so for the Santa Ynez Inn. My wife and I chose the Santa Ynez Inn for our 1-year anniversary vacation, and we so impressed when we saw our room (202), that we immediately changed our plans and extended our stay. When I first found the SYI... More

All I can say is Wow! This place is amazing down to every detail. A bottle of wine was waiting for us in our room along with robes and slippers. There was ice in the ice bucket and soda in the refrigerator. The piped-in music in the room was a touch I have never seen in a hotel. It certainly... More

We upgraded to the deluxe room with a patio and fireplace. It was worth the extra money. Our room was elegant and spacious as was the bathroom. 5-6pm was happy hour...we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the wines plus the appetizers were excellent. No need to go out to dinner. At 8pm deserts were available plus coffee...excellent. For... More
