Enjoy California's breathtaking central coast with a variety of amenities at our attached sister property Flying Flags. Guests can enjoy the resort swimming pool, playground, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Sideways Inn also allows guests to easily access many of the area's most popular attractions and destinations. Wine tasting at a local winery, the charming town of Solvang, and the serene surroundings of Lake Cachuma and Los Padres National Forest are just a few of the points of interest situated just moments away from our resort. The inn itself is an attraction as it was one of the shooting locations for the film Sideways.

My wife and I were driving the Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco to LA. Our travel agent reserved us a couple of nights at the Sideways Inn. It was a little off our route but our travel agent assured us it was worth the detour. This accommodation did not disappoint. We loved it. It is immaculate, the rooms are a great size and have everything you would need. All the staff were really friendly and the pool was great. We made the most of ‘happy hour’ at the at the Sideways Pub. Whilst there we visited a town up the road called Solvang and took the inland road to Santa Barbara passed a beautiful lake. Thanks Sideways, we will be back.

I've stayed at this hotel multiple times and in the past was not charged a resort fee. It seems that recently they started charging a $10 per night resort fee. The hotel is by no means a resort. It is a limited service hotel that does not even have a full service restaurant. They have added no additional amenities or new services to warrant the $10 per night fee. Everything is exactly the same as it was. Either the hotel offers more amenities/services or they should not charge the fee.

We stayed over for 1 night on our PCH road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles and loved the quirky aspect of the windmill. Very easy to find immediately off the freeway, close to Solvang that we also loved. There were a couple of places to eat in the vicinity. The room was small, but we did have a fridge and microwave and breakfast was provided on the door in the morning. Basic but adequate.We also found out from another review that you can supplement breakfast with coffee and danish pastries in reception, but were not told this at check in. They were lovely. Great air conditioning. Also lovely fire pits in the evening to sit around and have a drink.There are 2 things that I should mention. First, there is no lift. It is only 1 floor, but we had 4 cases and we were not informed of this at check in. Second, there is a bar that serves snacks but under 21's not allowed in. Also, don't rely on the complimentary toiletries as our bottles were virtually empty. We had our own so wasn't a problem but something to bear in mind.
