My boyfriend took me to this gem for my birthday weekend. This is a lovely boutique hotel. Beds are divine, Christian and his staff are attentive and the complimentary breakfast wonderful. Decor is wonderful, large rooms and property is spotless. The extensive list of complimentary wine tastings was also such a treat. I can't wait for our next visit.

The current time is 3:01 AM. I am wide awake and have been since 1:15 because the guests in the room are being obnoxiously loud. I have called 4 times to the front dest now who I've now found out has not even called security because the guest is an "actor". I cannot believe how unprofessional the staff has been...

This is the perfect Inn. Beautiful modern rooms with a romantic vibe..breakfast so good you won't be hungry all day, but if you are, lovely apps and wine late afternoon are only outdone by dessert later. The grounds are small but lovely. The complementary wine tastings with your room key makes a wonderful scavenger hunt to find the perfect Pinot...

The room comes with a delightful breakfast (the french toast was excellent). They accommodated my spouse's no gluten/no lactose/no dairy/no shellfish with charm and grace and were eager to please. There's also wine and snacks in the afternoon, an dessert in the evening. All fun. We had room 202, the first upgrade and it was huge. There's a steam bath...

I've stayed at the inn a few times over the years. It was always my most favorite place of all! But...seems that it has been bought by a corporation and a few little things just weren't right. The rooms are still beautiful and clean. The special touches are not quite as special. The breakfast isn't as delicious, the service was...

We really enjoy staying here. We come up at least once a year. Last year we had friends from New York join us and they loved it too. The rooms are beautifully appointed and luxurious. The breakfast is always delicious. The staff is friendly and helpful. You can walk to many excellent local restaurants. At night the stars come out...

The most amazing stay we have had in Santa Ynez. We would most definitely go back. The room was immaculate and huge. Breakfast was delicious and the wine tastings came in handy while we toured the area. Could not have asked for a beeper stay.

We go to Santa Ynez for a quick escape from the Los Angeles area. The rolling hills and wine tasting make for a great couple of days. The inn is beautiful and the staff are conscience . The serve gourmet breakfasts, wine tasting in the afternoon and desert at night. It makes for a wonderful time.
