“Excellent value for money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

My family and I decided to do a weekend trip to go wine tasting in Santa Ynez Valley and came across this place to stay overnight. Its about a 30 minute drive from Santa Ynez but totally worth the drive. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The room itself is nothing spectacular but clean nonetheless. Free cooked to order breakfast is included in the room rate and its pretty good too. They have complimentary fruit and sodas in the lobby and I thought I read something about free ice cream too. I have never heard of such a place that has all this stuff included but believe it. Its for real! I dont understand how they make money? I do not have one bad thing to say about this place. Excellent value for money!

We were here over the Memorial Day Weekend, 2013. They are now my favorite hotel in this part of wine country. They had quiet clean rooms each with a full size refrigerator, satellite TV, and big flat screens, and most importantly comfy beds and pillows. The room came with a made to order breakfast each day, complementary 3 hour happy hour: soda, beer, wine, and mixed drinks, and soft drinks in the lobby. We took advantage of both and we were happy we did. The breakfast burrito was excellent. They had a sparkling clean pool and hot tub and outdoor BBQ facilities available. All of the above cost less than $100 per night!

Room Tip: They have some limited pet friendly rooms. Cost is an additional $25 per stay.

Excellent little Inn and very good value for money. The hotel is very neat and clean. They offer cooked to order breakfast in the morning till 10:30 am. I have mixed feeling on this because the Breakfast room can get crowded and there are only two young ladies to cater to all the guests and take their orders. Not sure how many chefs they have but breakfast can be a slow affair if you are in a rush but they try their best and the coffee and juices are self serve and very good. Everything else was excellent. The location is ideal if you are staying for a few days and want to explore Santa Barbara, Solvang, Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo and Santa Ynez, since its only an hours drive from all of them.

WOW!!! What a property. I wish I could stay at one of their places anytime I travel. I don't even know where to begin. The property is super clean and nicely maintained. The staff is beyond great. A giant selection of dvd's to enjoy on your massive TV, complimentary ice cream and delicious coffee, full size fridge and a restaurant style breakfast that is delicious served up by amazing servers. (Don't forget to tip them!!!). The pool area features a pretty nice poolside kitchen area where you can BBQ you own steak over a great wood fired grill (not sure if it was mesquite or hickory). The pool is cold and the hot tub...hot. We weren't there for happy hour but would like to come back just for that. This place is AMAZING. The rooms are super nice. Don't expect a luxury suite though. What you get is an average sized hotel room that is extremely clean, a soft deluxe bed, a plush recliner and a massive TV with full satellite service and DVD player. What more could you want? THANK YOU O' Cairns - We'll be back

This place was amazing! The room was slightly run down, but still fine with a comfortable king bed, a leather recliner and a full size refrigerator - not a suite or a kitchenette - a regular room. The most amazing thing, though, were the "happy hour" and breakfast. The happy hour is a full, open bar from 5:00 - 8:00pm! The breakfast is an amazing cooked to order full breakfast, which is ordered off a menu. The amenities really put this place over the top!

We found O'Cairns on the Internet and thought the reviews sounded great so we chose to stay here. We were not disappointed the staff was friendly and accommodating, the amenities were everything we had read about on trip advisor. We enjoyed happy hour, I had a nice white wine and my husband found great beer on tap, he even took a drink back to the room.
The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was first class, I had a veggie omelet and fresh fruit .... Delicious!
If you are like us and don't know anything about the area, Lompoc is not a place we would normally go for vacation, it was a convenient place to spend the night but not really anything to see or do there.
O'Cairns Inn is definitely the place to stay if you are in Lompoc.

Travelling down the West Coast of California we needed a stay for the night around Lompoc. I had used Trip Advisor for some ideas of where to stay and boy did this one really live up to its excellent rating. Rooms clean and spacious. Reception staff excellent. Complimentary DVD rental, complimentary ice-cream, complimentary Happy Hour and the best complimentary breakfast of our whole trip. How do they manage top provide all this for the price of the room. Wish there were more of them around. Wi-Fi reception was unreliable
