“We will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We have been Ponte Wine Club members since 2005 and were so excited to hear that accommodations were being added to this lovely property. As it turned out, we were the first guests to stay in our King Balcony Suite when we visited in May 2012. We enjoyed the spa-like quality of the room, linens, bathroom, robe, etc., as well as the beautiful views of the property from the balcony. The Inn was still under its final construction, and not all amenities were available, but we were given a free continental breakfast to compensate for some of the sawdust and inconveniences. We will definitely make another trip to enjoy this beautiful inn.

My boyfriend & I were driving back from Las Vegas and tired. We are wine club members but had never stayed at the Ponte Vineyard Inn. We impulsively decided to stop and get a room. The room was absolutely beautiful! The food at the restaurant and the cellar lounge was fantastic! I can't recommend it enough. We had such a good time and the service was exceptional. I'm so glad we stayed there. We'll definitely be back!

I surprised my wife with a night in wine country in Temecula. I did.... really, really really.... really good. That's what she said. We went for one night (we have small kids at home) and we enjoyed every bit. Rooms: tasteful (we had a king junior suite). We enjoyed the moscato while we waited for our room and tried the wine at the tasting room across the property. There's several wineries (good ones) within 5 minutes of Ponte so exploring is so easy (it's really central to the wine, i mean who cares about going to Downtown Temecula?). I told them ahead of time that it was our anniversary, and they made it really special. (Thank you for the extras in the room, you hooked me).

Value: I thought was good. AAA discount made it affordable, and to be honest, if you are going out for an anniversary, go for it. The food was nice at the restaurant at the tasting room (in back). There's a bar in the basement, or "cellar" if you will. It's nice to grab a night cap. The outside courtyard was nice and quiet I thought and if we didn't have other stuff on the brain, we'd have enjoyed the fire for a while. The hotel had a low occupancy since we went on a Sunday. I read reviews and researched this trip quite extensively, and really I have to say the staff were extremely accommodating. They are, as I read, a bit green, but I think that's because they are trying so hard to be professional. I think if they had one point person (just one), almost like a maitre d' or something that was a bit more comfortable with the guests that really had a feel for the Valley it would enhance the experience. Not everyone that is coming through the doors plays golf on weekends or is a board member someplace. You can tell the manager runs a tight ship, which is good, i'm just saying it's wine country. Somebody have a glass. (and thanks for ours when we checked in by the way).

Also, i saw a comment (in my researching this place) about not liking the view of the parking lot. I say: If you are staring at the parking lot off in the distance far away, mister, you're doing something wrong. And who needs a door man in the Temecula sun? i think i'd feel bad I 'm patronizing a hotel that did that to a human being. I think they did great at Ponte. Like, really great, with everything. This place had all kinds of opportunity for (i'll say it) romance and memory making, you have to give it that. I also felt great it is a green hotel. The balconies on the bottom floor open up to a field for crying out loud. I thought it was great. So, we are going back, in case you couldn't tell. Thanks again, especially from my wife. We are gonna talk about this for a while. -Victor

Room Tip: It's all about the junior suite. Go on a Sunday if you can, you'll have the place to yoursel...

Oh my oh my ~ We booked two rooms one at Ponte ~ the other at the property next door (south coast) What a difference service makes! From check in with champagne, a smile and helpful staff to amazingly beautiful grounds and rooms to impeccable bar, dinner, and breakfast service! Just amazing place to celebrate any occasion ~ my Mom's 70th surprise birthday this time! The staff at Ponte just stepped up when we had added guests and created a private dining room for 20 (should have been 6) ... just amazing! They know how to do it right - don't waste your time on their neighbor!

We made a quick trip to the wine country for our anniversary and decided to stay at the Ponte Inn after reading high reviews on tripadvisor. The hotel is beautiful, the staff bent over backwards to assist you and our room was amazing as it looked out over the vineyards. What a treat. We highly recommend this hotel and will be going back. Thank you Sarah!

My husband and I got married and Ponte Winery in May 2013 and we stayed at the Ponte Vineyard Inn, as well as the rest of our family and bridal party! I have never stayed in a more beautiful hotel! Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted with a glass of their delicious Moscato! They made you feel very welcome from the moment you walked in. The hotel is amazing! No stone was left un-turned! The decor and grounds of the hotel are breathtaking! You almost don't want to leave once you are there! We were fortunate enough to stay in one of their two Grand Suites! A definite must! It is 1300 sq ft of pure luxury! The service and staff are first class. You will not be disappointed!!
