“4.5 stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

LOVED everything about this sweet little B&B. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. Our room was beautiful and spacious. All the luxuries you would expect from an that would cost twice as much.
A bonus was the delicious breakfast, happy hour and nightly desserts. We will be back!

The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars was because our bed was too hard - but some people might like that.

We spent several delightful days at Santa Ynez Inn over Christmas. Even before arriving, we were sold on the Inn by the wonderful personal attention lavished on us by Christina, who deserves special recognition for her warm, friendly, caring approach to guests. The Inn, although Victorian in decor, is relatively new (2001, with an add-on in 2008), and reflects the highest quality construction. Rooms - each one individually configured and furnished - are spacious and comfortable. Terrific breakfasts every morning, plus "happy hour" appetizers, local wines and a roaring fire each evening, plus after-dinner desserts & coffee! Who could ask for more? Well, the Inn also provides great outing and restaurant recommendations, too. We encountered several returning guests - further testament to the warm feelings engendered by the Inn and its staff. This has got to be the best place to stay in the Santa Ynez / Solvang / Los Olivos area if you're visiting vineyards, sightseeing, or just plain getting away from it all!

My wife and I stayed at the Inn to celebrate her birthday, take in the sites and visit a few of the local wineries. From our arrival to our departure, we had a great experience. The accommodations were excellent and the staff was both professional and personable. They were able to satisfy all our requests for information and assistance with ease. Each morning we were treated to an outstanding made-to-order breakfast. The Inn's daily wine tasting/appetizers and coffee/desserts complimented our evening meals and provided the final touch to an enjoyable day. Thanks to the entire staff for making this a wonderful birthday vacation for my wife and me.

I selected this inn as the site for my honey's 50th birthday. We checked in to room 212 with a huge bathroom complete With heated floors and a giant Jacuzzi tub. Steam shower was fabulous.
No corners work when building this beautiful property. Everything was absolutely lovely.
We truly felt like royalty. The evening wine reception with the appetizers is very nice And coming back after dinner for their dessert reception was perfect.
We will definitely come back!

We've always stayed in Santa Barbara when we visited Santa Ynez wine country, so I was looking for a change when I booked this place. It definitely won me over for location and proximity to the wineries, as well as the complimentary gourmet breakfast each morning. The rooms were modern and beautiful, and you really can't beat the peace and quiet in this area. I was a tad worried that there wouldn't be enough food options, but there is a great mexican restaurant down the road, as well as some really great places in Solvang.

Wow - we felt like royalty. The rooms are elegant, the breakfasts delicious. As noted already, the complimentary wine and hor d'oeuvres and desserts were a treat and also led to wonderful chats with other guests near the fire. A beautiful spot.

This was a delightful stay! Really enjoyed the complimentary wine / hors d'oeuvers and desserts . Breakfast was very nice. Rooms clean and very spacious! Staff was great and took care of all our needs. We would stay again on our next trip to the area. Well worth the price.
