Travelers' Choice
When Fess Parker purchased the 714-acre Foxen Canyon Ranch in 1988, he planned to run cattle, plant a few acres of vineyard, and perhaps, someday, establish a small winery. His dream was to start a family business that he could pass on to future generations.

One of the best hotel stays I’ve ever had. From start to finish the experience at Fess Parker was excellent. At checkin we were greeted by friendly staff who gave us a tour of the grounds and amenities. Our room was large and luxurious with a private fireplace, complimentary wine, and all the amenities to make for a comfortable stay. The bed was SUPER comfortable with luxury linens. Breakfast was delicious and again the staff was exceptional. We also took advantage of the outdoor fireplace and pool area - which made for a comfy spot to enjoy a glass of vino. Truly Spectacular!

Situated in the quaint little burg of Los Olivos hard by Solvang and the wine trail, the accommodations are luxe and the staff superb. Checked in over the xmas holidays and everything is open and abuzz. Convenient to all the little nearby towns and on the Main Street you can enjoy your room and a stroll. Great breakfast was included. Highly recommend as we had 2 fireplaces to enjoy on our rainy nights after doing the wineries and a hike up Figueroa Mountain.

As overseas visitors staying for 2 night we were most upset to find that we were not informed that we had to book for their in-house restaurant it being closed the first night. And were only given the option of dining outside night 2. It being cold and wet , this was not an option. I do feel that preference should be given to hotel guests.

Rooms are beautiful, comfortable and have everything you need. The two gals at the front desk (wish I remembered their names) were extremely helpful and patient as we booked another stay for our 30-year anniversary in December. Really an amazing stay.

The hotel itself is located on the main drag of Los Olivos (a really cute little town) and you're within walking distance of 46 (ish) tasting rooms. As a guest, you also get a wine passport that offers discounts or free tastings at some of the nearby wineries, which was great. We had lunch and a dinner at Nella's and loved both meals. There are a few parking spots for hotel guests, but fortunately we were able to find close street parking when those were full. The pool is decent-sized and they have two gas fireplaces that they light up at night for guests to sit outside. Where I'm really struggling with my review is that we booked the Epiphany Suite, which was the only room available for my husband's birthday weekend, and decided to go for the splurge ($750/night) since we hadn't traveled much during Covid. However, compared to other hotels where we've paid far less (Ritz Carlton, The Wynn), the amenities were lacking. First thing is that the suite (or at least the one we were in) was on the first floor and located just a few feet away from the main street, so I felt awkward opening my shutters since people were always walking by. And, we'd hear the noise from Nella's until they closed, since so many people dined outside (well past 10 on the weekends, which may bother early birds). The first night, we had people stomping around above us (woke me up) and early in the morning. It came back that evening and then was quiet our last day. It was the kind of noise that you expect (maybe) in a vacation rental, but not a fancy hotel. We were only provided filtered jugs of water in our room for free -- no soft drinks or sparkling waters or even bottled waters to take on the road. As others have noted, there was no breakfast provided and I was really surprised that there was no hair dryer in the room, so it was one more thing I had to pack. The layout is also awkward as the suite is really the extra room for a "formal" living room that we never wanted to sit in (stiff, uncomfortable furniture) and we couldn't watch the TV from that far away on the bed. The bathroom has everything in the same room and only one vanity, so it was always the "dance" with my husband to be in there. And the shower pressure was so light that I'm not sure that my hair was ever fully clean. But the real frustration was that we were from out of state and had to fly in, though fortunately, our airline does not charge to check wine as baggage. However, the hotel did not have any wine shipping boxes and even when we went to the Fess Parker Winery, they refused to sell us an extra box (even after telling them we were hotel guests and bought six bottles to ship directly home) and directed us to another winery down the street that sold us one for $8. Seriously, $750/night won't even allow us to purchase an $8 box? Overall, we liked the hotel for its location, but if we come back, we would stay in the cheaper rooms, as there was no "benefit" to getting a suite except for having extra the space that we didn't need.

Nella restaurant in side the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn looks like a favorite for locals and tourists alike. Beautiful place with outdoor seating, a great big bar, and cozy indoor restaurant. Service was attentive and very friendly. Food was yummy and interesting complimented nicely by a bottle of Walt Pinot. Overall wonderful experience and will be back.

Beautiful quaint town and Inn! Perfectly situated for biking amd wine tasting. Los Olivos is very relaxing and has some amazing wine and food. The Inn has beautiful rooms and their tasting rooms had some very good wine (Epiphany). The restaurant and bar was excellent and the bar was very lively amd had a fun crowd. Highly recommend this for a relaxing place to see wineries.

While this a beautiful hotel in the quaint village of Los Olivos, they are no longer offering a breakfast option at the hotel which at this price point is embarrassing. Instead, they tell you to go elsewhere which means to the one place in Los Olivos that has breakfast which was not good or if you want to drive they mentioned a couple but those weren't open during our visit. They should at least offer their guests a continental breakfast. I understand that Covid has complicated things for everyone but this seems just like cost cutting effort... Rethink staying here and instead stay at one of the close by B&Bs that do offer breakfast options.

My wife and I stayed 7/29-31 in connection with a balloon experience. Positive: the room was terrific, the Nella restaurant was great and the general environment was good. BUT the staff was semi-comatose with absence of hellos or other acknowledgement. Breakfast was promised in future but there was not even coffee offered. The breakfast room for future is bare and unattractive. One of the good features of the place was the library which was great for reading and gathering. It has been eliminated. The spa has been done away with. Too many changes for the worst. They did a good job of reporting a COVID infection of staff and status.

Monday, May 24, 2021, arrived at this charming small town. Easy check in and short walk acrossGrand Ave to our accommodations. The room is lovely with huge bed, elegant bedding, fluffy pillows, air conditioning running, sofa, two comfy chairs, coffee table, and wonderful bathroom. A bottle of Fess Parker Pinot noir awaited us as did glass bottles of cold water in mini fridge. We checked out the pool but did not swim. Area is quiet and relaxing. Dinner reservations at Nella for 6:30. Greeted warmly, seated promptly. Unfortunately dining indoors is so noisy we asked to be moved to outdoor porch area. Much quieter. Meatball appetizer was great and highly recommended. Pinsa good but pricey. It was fun to see many different dog breeds laying at their owners feet during dinner. Dress is casual, jeans, boots, cowboy hats. Glad to see this small town bustling with people.
