With the abundance of wineries in the Santa Inez Valley, the Holiday Inn Express in Solvang is really hard to beat for a comfortable, well-run retreat after spending your day tasting some of the best wines in Santa Barbara County.

This hotel is a bit older. However, it is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Very large rooms with very large balconies. Free breakfast each morning. Hotel is on the main drag so you can walk everywhere you need to go.
