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

Everything about this Inn was fabulous. The deluxe king room we stayed in was beautiful. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. Would definitely stay again if visiting the wineries in the area.

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.
