This was our third stay over the years at the Wine Country Inn. Even though the decor is somewhat dated, it still works with the wine theme. The rooms are neat and clean, and we feel very safe there. We had a patio room with a nice view of the pool. The staff is so honest that when my husband left a tip for the maid on the bed, it was still there when we got back. He asked her the next day why she didn't take it, and she stated that she didn't want to assume it was a tip unless it was in the provided for envelope. The staff are good, solid people. Now, to the complimentary breakfast. Diners all around us kept complaining about the quality of the food. A gentlemen at the next table spit it out, and said they would have to go out for breakfast. The presentation is nice: real porcelain plates, real cutlery instead of plastic, nice chafing dishes....but the food they contain was rather awful. The eggs were like powdered eggs cooked like salty cement, the bacon was cheap and nasty, and the pastries were soggy. I think guests would gladly pay $10 or $20 more a night to get a farm to table type breakfast given that the area prides itself on local fare. You can't expect people who dine at Peche in the evening to eat that kind of food in the morning. Also, why not eat people at the breakfast in the restaurant instead of the bar and hallway? Just a suggestion.…
We stayed here for 4 nights last weekend for my Step-Son's Wedding. Easy to find, right off I-70. We had a 3rd floor room and it was very clean and quiet, but Rooms are dated, could use some upgrades for the price per night. We used the pool & hot tub, both very inviting. Loved the white rockers they had outside as well as the fire pit area. Good complimentary breakfast, so so complimentary wine from 5-6 pm. I did not like any of their whites; I wished they had a peach flavored one! Staff were all very nice and accommodating. We even got checked in early, both of our rooms were ready for us by 1:30 PM, that was a huge bonus.
The facility is great but they are the least accommodating people around. We had a wedding to attend at 4 and asked 2 days in advance to be able to get in our room by 3 for showers etc. they were firm on 4 check in and were outright rude when we pressed for help. Beware if you need something different than their strict rules allow. I suggest you find another place to stay.
My husband and I ended up here happenstance last minute as they were the only place that had availability when we looked. We arrived not knowing the wine festival was going on that weekend but embraced the overpriced room and joined in on the wine festivities that evening. We took part in the complimentary wine happy hour and their breakfast buffet. The room was standard, but we did have a great view of the wine fields. It's an older hotel that could probably use some upgrades but for us, we needed a place to stay and it did just that. We did actually go to the bar later in the evening and had great service. The breakfast buffet had plenty of options of hot and cold items and was delicious. Overall, a good stay but basic.
We spent 2 nights at the Wine country Inn. Overall the establishment in my opinion is a 7 on a 1 to 10 scale. The location in perfect. The rooms are decent. The outside patio rooms are great but no privacy and the roof overhangs semi- blocking you view of the Book cliffs. I could also hear people in other rooms but luckily most guest are older and probably asleep by 10 pm. The breakfast buffet needs help. The scrambled eggs were rough. I know it's tough in the hospitality business so I won't be too negative. We will stay here again.
