We drove past this place last year because the garden was so beautiful and cheery. We wanted to stay for just one night on our way from Los Angeles to San Francisco and our neighbor recommended this quaint place to us. It is a very nice and clean motel for a good price! We are here on a Thursday night... More

Stayed here as a last minute booking since I was going up to dinner in Santa Ynez. The room was small but fine for our overnight needs. The weather that night was rainy and really cold. The room had a heater on the wall but it took a long time to get the room warmer because it was freezing at... More

If you're looking for a place to unplug without actually unplugging this is the place. Had a lovely fountain right outside our window. A young couple even got married on the little lawn area located in the middle of the court. Rooms are quiet but connected to wifi and dish network. I only wish we could have stayed longer. We...

I stayed at Meadowlark over Christmas eve in the room with the private garden and hot tub. It was a lovely room with an electric fireplace and the garden has a hammock which is great for relaxing. It was unfortunate that the weather was a little cold to fully enjoy the garden and hot tub, but the room was cozy... More

Many thanks to this guest for taking the time to review and the compliments. We apologize for the spotty internet which we did have an issue with during this guests stay, but has since been fixed. I am sorry this guest was disappointed in the breakfast. We offer a hot egg dish daily in addition to boiled eggs, house made... More

Booked a room here for my mom for her birthday. She got room #5 a simple, well decorated room with a comfy bed, two wicker arm chairs, heat/ Ac and a clean simple bathroom with shower. It was raining and quite cozy while I visited with my mom by the fireplace. Her dog was welcome and there was plenty of... More

We were to spend 2 nights, Oct. 17-19, but left after the first night. Wish I had saved pictures. Started with missing cushion on one of two dirty, porch chairs. Ants in bathroom-husband went to office; they handed him bug spray! Then 2 dead and one live bug on floor. Several holes in the very thin sheets. Broken towel rack... More

We all work very hard here at the inn to keep our rooms, grounds and service clean and professional. I am extremely sorry that these guests did not enjoy their stay at all, contrary to the many guests who stay here and give us very positive reviews. I would like to take this opportunity to explain a bit. We are... More

Really comfy bed, great breakfast and awesome dinner and server at the succulent cafe. The puppy dog was so cute and the parking was very nice.We brought our own champagne to breakfast and that was really nice.

My parents and I stayed here for 2 nights last Thanksgiving. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. I have been staying in the Santa Ynez Valley for many years and have tried just about everywhere. I have driven past the Meadowlark many times and never gave it a thought. But when trying to find a room at holiday time,... More

This is a 60s motel redone as a B&B experience. Lovely grounds. Cozy redo of rooms. Enjoyable breakfast. Pleasant staff. Our misfortune, however, was to be adjacent to Room #1 that comes with a hot tub and on that particular Halloween Saturday night a bunch of rowdy 'guests' that decided to party at 1 a.m. My advice to travelers: don't...

A very rare and unfortunate incident to have noisy neighbors. Our rules state that quiet time is between 10 pm and 9 am, unfortunately the guests in room 1 did not follow and are no longer welcome here. We have a staff member living on the property, unfortunately, again, they were not contacted until much later to stop the noise.... More
