“Sophisticated wine country retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Inviting, contemporary design in this comfortable, upscale wine country inn. Our room was huge with every amenity including fireplace, luxurious bathrobes, outstanding TV with all cable stations, very comfortable king bed and spacious bathroom with wonderful walk-in closet. The personnel were all very professional, helpful and friendly. Petros restaurant had very good food, there is an attached wine tasting room and lovely spa. Los Olivos is a tiny, charming town full of wine tasting rooms and art galleries in the middle of some of California's most spectacular scenery. The Fess Parker Inn and Spa is a wonderful asset to this idyllic environment.

Great Boutique hotel in the quaint town of Los Olivos! This hotel is top notch and the rooms are nicely appointed. Fireplace is a nice touch in each room and the bedding is amazing and so cozy! The Robes are even soft and cozy! Each room has a small fridge and coffee maker. I loved the bath towels as they were the thickest and largest I've ever seen! Great location, able to walk to to wine tasting and shops. They have great deals online. We did the spa package which was well worth it! Small spa, but the massage therapist was amazing! Perfect weekend getaway! Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We had a basic room in front. Nicely furnished and didnt hear any noise.

Stayed here last Saturday as a last minute decision. We were only planning on staying around the town of Los Olivos to avoid having to do any driving. This hotel was perfect. I have been through Los Olivos about a dozen times and never knew this hotel was right on the main street. We walked to a bunch of tasting rooms and other places around town, the location is very conveneient. The hotel decor was very nice and the room was clean and spacious. We stayed in a regular "Luxury Guest Room." The room had a Fireplace, refrigerator, desk, 2 chairs placed by the window, closet, large bathroom, huge TV and a King bed. Definatley enough space for 2 people. The restaurant at the hotel has a limited menu so you may have to venture out for food depending on what you are in the mood for. However, the hotel gives you complimentary breakfast everyday for the restaurant and they have many breakfast menu options. I will definatley stay here on my next trip up there, and would recommend visitors to consider this location.

We booked the Winter Wonderland package, and without a lot of pre-planning, still felt we got a lot of bang for the buck. Luxury Spa room was very spacious -- although room only has a shower, no tub! Complimentary bottled water in room fridge, Keurig coffees and tea by the pool, which is heated. Package included full breakfast each day, 3-course dinner at Petro's with wine tasting/pairing per course (nice surprise), 4 wine tastings plus a 55-minute massage for 2 that we upgraded to hot-stone for additional $10 each. We even had a celebrity sighting... let's just say he was a little outside his "Northern Exposure." A secret find in a sleepy town. Perfect weekend getaway!

Room Tip: Rooms 20/21 are in back of hotel, off main street. Very quiet, private.

Everything about the Inn is First Class! Although a bit pricey, it is worth the stay. a great location for touring around the neighboring vineyards. Excellent breakfast included. Petro's in the Inn, has a somewhat limited Greek menu, but all delicious. The wine (and beer) tasting down the hall in Bin 2860 is terrific. They offer an unusual variety to choose from. We found this exceptionally attractive as an alternative to the vineyards who offer their specialized fare. The tasting menu was very diversified and International as well. Big surprise were the beer flavors.

Room Tip: Large suites available in a separate building across the street from the main Inn building.

We really enjoyed staying at Fess Parkers in Los Olivos. We have stayed at quite a few places in Santa Ynez, and this was by far the best. Excellent staff, service, rooms etc. It's nice being able to walk out the door to local restaurants and wine tasting rooms. Also, Petros for breakfast at Fess Parkers was delicious. We can't wait to go back!!!

Room Tip: we stayed in room #2 at the main building and loved it. Very nice room, fireplace, compfy king bed...

But you need to preplan to squeeze the value out of this as it is pricey.
We stayed on a Tuesday evening. The room was a bit under $400 - but there are things included: breakfast and tastings at 3 tasting rooms.
Plus (here's where preplanning comes in) - if you are a member of the Fess Parker wine club you get a 15 or 20% discount on your room. That's quite a discount!
Plus the facility and the adjoining Petros restaurant are both excellent. The little village of Los Olivos is charming during the week (not as crowded as the on the weekeknds).
And the best towels and bed ever!

Room Tip: We were across the street from the main building. Our room was street level and on the street, and...
