The Santa Ynez Inn did not meet my expectations for quality of food, gardens, furnishings, etc. It was somewhat worn and dated and food was fairly mundane (not as advertised). On the positive, the staff was very service oriented and accommodating, the rooms are large and the location is great.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Feedback is always welcomed as it allows us to improve upon our facility and guest experience. While I'm glad that our staff, room accommodations, and central location hit the mark for you, I'm sorry to hear that certain elements of our hotel did not meet your expectations. I'd like to note that we completed a full renovation of the property only a couple years ago, which included a thorough update of all guest rooms, common areas, garden and spa. We also work consistently with our in-house dining staff to offer fresh, seasonal options for our guests during our breakfast and wine hour. Again, I apologize if we missed the mark for you. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any further concerns. Kindly, Julio P. General Manager

My wife and I took another trip to the Chumash Casino today. As usual, the Keno Machines were set up to take but, never give. The slots give a little and, you will get one number in your group and maybe two but, any number to give you you bet back is none available until you have given in $12 to $20 dollar before you get your bet bat on any play. If you are playing 20 cards with one or more nickles bet, you will get a little feed back then, you will watch you money fly away like a Bank Robber taking it from you. Thee is just no chance of winning and, people we know have quit coming to the Casino. What they are saying is," I can't believe how much my Bank Accounts have gone up. Well, if you are going 3 to 4 times week with $1,000 each, you will notice how you account grows when you stay home. What use to be a crowded Casino all the time, now their is hours on end when the place looks empty. Save you money until I give a good report on this Casino.

From the minute we arrived we were completely wowed! Beautifully appointed rooms with excellent amenities - construction was right next door and we couldn’t hear it at all. The breakfast both mornings was delicious while offering is limited to three choices, the quality is excellent - some of the best pancakes ever. Evening wine hour with the fire pits a lovely way to cap off the day before dinner. The bonus wine passport proved very helpful to choose the wineries to visit - Sunstone us a must see. We will definitely be back!

We came for our honeymoon and it was perfect. The room was beautiful. The entire atmosphere was romantic and relaxing. The amenities provided were the best. A gourmet breakfast every morning, wine hour with meats and cheeses to pair with the wine, dessert hour, the turn down service, beautiful music piped into your room, and the tasting vouchers were the best. I don't want to stay where else.

What a great experience. We visited the Santa Ynez Inn for my wife’s 50th birthday and would couldn’t have been more please with the property. The room was spacious and well appointed. The breakfasts, wine hour and desserts were fantastic, and the property was within walking distance to two wonderful restaurants. Thanks for making my wife’s birthday very special.
