“Beautiful New Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We were in Temecula for two nights and stayed at the Ponte Vineyard Inn. It is a lovely new facility, less than a year old. We had a spacious king suite with a balcony overlooking the vineyard. All of the amenities were luxurious and first class. We ate in the restaurant twice for breakfast and had unique, interesting, tasty meals. All of the staff members we encountered were friendly and helpful. I would return here again to visit Temecula wine country

My wife and I have been wine club members for three years. We were very excited to see the groundbreaking, building and opening of the inn. When I asked my wife what she wanted for her birthday, she quickly responded with "A weekend at the inn!" Everything was perfect! We had lunch with some friends at the winery then wine tasting and finish the evening in the Cellar Lounge. It was just a perfect birthday weekend for my wife and I. Highly recommend it.

We stayed here after our wedding night since it was a close drive from our wedding venue, and I looked at 30 different places to stay in and around So Cal, and I am glad we choose this place! The room was very very clean, because I have high standards after working as a Hotel Inspector for 3 Years several years back. The Staff was extremely nice, and went over and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect! This Hotel has charm, and warmth! The only thing is I thought it had a pool but all I found was a pond out back...LOL! I cant wait to go back and stay and inhale the vineyards around us in Temecula, CA!

I recently made a one-night trip to Temecula to do some wine tasting and chose the Ponte Vineyard Inn as home base, having visited their tasting room and wonderful gift shop just before the holidays. The Inn was a surprising delight. Open only since last year, the mission-style inn was beautifully constructed and landscaped. The room was large and very comfortable, with first-class amenities (including L'Occitane bath products and a Keurig coffee/tea maker). A complimentary glass of the winery's moscato upon check-in was a nice touch. Each member of the staff was friendly, professional and very welcoming. There's a superb, small dining room off the lobby, serving breakfast and dinner (truly wonderful - both meals were excellent). For lunch, it's a short walk over to the main winery/tasting room and a lovely outdoor restaurant under a covered loggia. Although I didn't use it, the hotel directory lists a 24-hour fitness room accessible with your room key. There is no pool, although I rarely make use of hotel pools, so that's not a negative for me. From Ponte, there's easy access by car to many of the areas best tasting rooms, including Wiens (right next door), Falkner (possibly the most beautiful setting of any winery in the valley), Monte de Oro, and Hart. Ponte Vineyard Inn is a top recommendation for anyone seeking a comfortable, elegant hideaway in the Temecula Valley.

PS- anyone making the short drive to Old Town Temecula for lunch really should stop by the Villa di Calabro tasting room on Main Street and taste their wonderful flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegars. What a find!

After many overnights in Temecula, we decided to stay at the Ponte Inn. It was a fabulous choice. The location is right in the middle of the wine country, within walking distance of three fantastic wineries. The rooms could not have been cleaner or more comfortable. The wifi was easily accessible and being greeted with Moscato was first class. We loved the room, restaurant and wine. What could be better?

Room Tip: We did not miss the pool, but loved our balcony overlooking the pond and spectacular view.

Stayed here for romantic getaway with the wife. Staff was awesome, grounds were beautiful and the room was incredible. Finally a place to stay in Temecula besides South Coast that has a comfortable bed to sleep on. The room was quiet and had a nice balcony for a couple glasses of wine and a cigar. We will definitely be coming back to stay here again. Yes, it cost a little more to stay here than other places but isn't your sweetheart worth it?

We came to this hotel based on a recommendation in December for our friend's birthday and then loved it so much we came back for my birthday in January! It was amazing! Traci and colleagues at the front desk were so kind and helpful and welcomed us with a delicious glass of bubbly. Traci made fantastic winery recommendations and even called ahead to make us reservations at one which was reservation only. The food at the restaurant was delicious and the wines were fantastic. We used to live in SF and go to Napa and Sonoma regularly and were impressed with how far Temecula has come! It reminded me of Sonoma years ago! Rustic and not overly touristy with beautiful views and some great wines!

Overall we loved the property, the decor, the comfort of the rooms, the beautiful views, the restaurant and late night lounge with music! Traci also surprised us and sent a treat to the room for my birthday which was so kind and generous! We joined the wine club after the first visit and enjoyed the complimentary tastings in reserve room! We cannot wait to book another trip!
