We just stayed at this Inn for one night on our drive down the coast - we wish we would have stayed longer and enjoyed the area. We arrived around 7pm. Check in was quick and easy - self park in the back parking lot. They offered to help with luggage, but we were just bringing in a carry on,... More

This hotel was wonderful! Our room was huge with beautiful furnishings, fireplace, Jacuzzi tub and walk in shower. The bathroom was just as big as the room itself. From the moment we arrived, my husband and I felt completely comfortable and relaxed. They had a great complimentary wine and cheese afternoon, coffee, tea and desserts in the evening and a... More

Stunning rooms and location in the midst of cozy restaurants. Wine hour and dessert hour were excellent complimentary treats! This is an excellent choice for anyone visiting the beautiful Santa Barbara wine country! Close to picturesque Solvang (the Danish City!)

My husband and sister and I visited this charming and beautiful Inn recently. The room was very large (we got two double beds) and the bathroom enormous! It was a truly comfortable and lovely experience. The breakfast was great and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We'll be back - soon hopefully!

Outstanding hotel and personnel. Room was excellent as was the breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a unique stay in a quiet hotel. Decorations and furniture were top notch. The breakfast was outstanding and much better than those I have paid for. I didn't get to try the wine and cheese or desert hour but I will... More

What a delightful place to stay. We have traveled the world, and the Santa Ynez Inn is in the top category of all the places we have visited. The property seems new but with antique furnishings. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast delicious, the afternoon wine and snacks were enjoyable. The rural quiet setting was perfect for... More

The room was HUGE and elegant. The bed was the most comfortable one we've ever slept on....really! Great free breakfast. We loved this place and will return. We only stayed one night because our final destination was not Santa Ynez.

The Santa Ynez Inn is a wonderful place to stay if the pocketbook can afford it (hint: look for the Trip Advisor rate) and you like the quiet life. Set in the middle of the quiet village of Santa Ynez in the otherwise busy Santa Ynez Valley close to Los Olivos and Solvang, this small yet elegant hotel delivers comfort,... More

It is certainly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The room is huge, bathroom too. Amenities are excellent and employees very kind. The food is absolutely fabulous and you can´t miss the afternoon tea. It is a must
