This is a great place to,stay in the Santa Ynez Valley. It is close to Solvang and Wine tasting. The Victorian style is very cute and the rooms are very traditional. The bathrooms are roomy and first rate. You can walk into the cute little town for dinner but start out with the wine tasting and appetizers at the Inn.

Based on a recommendation of a friend, we reserved a room for a 2 night 3 day stay to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. Upon our arrival, we were warmly received by the on duty hostess "Janet". After checking us in, she escorted us to our room. Much to our delight the room was large. It had a fireplace and... More

We stayed at this inn for the first time midweek in March. Everything was excellent. Large well appointed room, delicious breakfasts, nice evening wine tastings, perfect in all ways. We had made reservations for Wed. and Thurs. nights. We loved the place so much on Thursday afternoon (from a winery) I called them to see if we could stay Friday... More

The room was probably the largest I have ever stayed in, just huge, with a cozy gas fireplace and large, comfy sitting chairs in front. The bed was memory foam, which is not my favorite, but was quite comfortable. My only suggestion would be that they provide some sort of placard or cheat sheet describing the numerous control panels for... More

We are currently staying at this charming beautiful hotel, everything is going really well and we loved the breakfast, the complimentary evening wine tasting and dessert. However, when we checked in yesterday, we were asked to pay for the 3rd person in the room even after I confirmed with Expedia that the price I paid should already included the 3rd... More

This is my second stay at the Santa Ynez Inn and it is one special place! The service and accommodations are wonderful. The morning breakfast is outstanding, wonderful service all day (including ice delivery to the room toward the middle of the afternoon). Just a lovely lovely place. I would recommend it for anyone. Near downtown and several terrific restaurants.... More

By dumb luck we heard of the Santa Ynez Inn, it is an great find. The staff was wonderful and very friendly. The room was large and very comfy with its own fireplace and jacuzzi tub. They had breakfast in the morning, a wine and cheese hour and a desert hour. We had such a good time all we could... More
