My husband surprised me with a trip to Santa Ynez and the Santa Barbara area wine country for our 30th anniversary. A highlight of the trip was our stay at the Santa Ynez Inn. It is elegant in a laid back way that makes you feel welcome and at home from the minute you enter the property. As others have... More

The Santa Ynez Inn is an excellent choice if the Ballard Inn is full. The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful, the rooms and public areas well maintained, and the breakfasts, afternoon wine and cheese, and nightly desserts were generally very good and plentiful (note to kitchen: the yolks in an eggs Benedict should be runny not solid). The owners... More

We did not arrive to the Inn until about 2:30am on our first night and we were warmly welcomed even though the hour was so late. The gentleman behind the desk helped us with our bags and gave us...

Took my girlfriend for a nice 3 day drive around Santa Barbara Wine Country. The Inn was easy to find and a great base to tour wineries. The rooms are large with nice amenities. The staff is very accommodating and went out of the way on a couple of occasions to do things for me. The dining room is spectacular... More

The hotel staff was attentive and helpful, giving us directions and suggestions for wineries and restaurants, all of them great. The breakfast each... More

The inn is a bed and breakfast and serves great food. At 5pm every nite they have a wine hour with appetizers. But the rooms are what are eceptional. We stayed in the tower suite and it was beautiful with a jacuzzi tub and a steam shower.

The inn is located on a quiet street in a charming town. The public areas are spacious and gracious. The rooms are quite large and beautifully appointed. The bed was quite comfortable and the linens were of high quality. Our room had a balcony with a peaceful view over a fountain. The people at the hotel could not have been... More
