The service is warm and friendly, and the rooms are comfortable with nice finishes and good amenities. Breakfast is included, and it is an ample start to your day for whatever you have planned.

In the middle of the Santa Barbara wine country, this is a very comfortable option to stay to explore the wineries. The area is nothing like Napa or Sonoma. It's a relative newcomer to the California wine scene. We did a few tastings, including an excellent one at Liquid Farm.

The wood work, the charm the class of the décor is beautiful. If you stay here, plan some time walking around the Inn and property, because it’s really beautiful. The breakfast is... More

On February 20, 2014, I wrote a review on the Santa Ynez Inn. We had such an amazing experience that trip and couldn't wait to go back. My husband travels to California a bit for business so we decided this was going to be a yearly excursion for us. I called in July 2014 to make a reservation for our... More

Every time we came up she was happy to meet... More

I may have written a good review for this inn before I had this problem. I am just warning people that they are very strict on their cancellation policy and their management is about as rude as you can get once they have charged you for a no-show. I inadvertently booked a wrong night this fall for two rooms and... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Santa Ynex Inn! The room was very large and had a gas fireplace. The bathroom was amazing! The breakfasts were wonderful, and every night they had free wine, snacks, and desserts. It is a beautiful inn, very quiet and convenient to all sites in the SY Valley. Cannot recommend this highly enough!
