There are Bed and Breakfast that are really good, but nothing compares to The Santa Ynez Inn. This place is stunning before you walk in the front door. 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

This is a beautiful property with friendly and helpful staff and gorgeous rooms. Each room had its own individual ambience and style, comfortable beds and fireplaces. Tha bathroom was very impressive and spotless clean too. It is the perfect hotel for a romantic weekend in a very soothing atmosphere and located close to nice wineries. Also very close to Solvang...

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

Our overall experience was fantastic...Bobbie was our contact at the Inn and took care of all of our needs and connected us with local vendors since we were not in the local area. 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!

Elegant room. We had a basic room but it surpassed our expections. Comfy bed, large bathroom with all the amenities you would expect from a 5 star. Morning... More
