“Ticked all the boxes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We stayed there for 2 nights. The Inn is delightful. Rooms were spacious and beautifully furnished. The beds were really comfortable. The massive bathroom was gorgeous.
The afternoon cocktail hour was a really good time to meet fellow guests and taste the local cheeses and wines.
Breakfast was delicious.
I would recommend this Inn to anyone.

Extremely pleasant bed and breakfast in Santa Ynez. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Excellent breakfast in the morning. Rooms are expensive for the area but we enjoyed staying there and would go back.

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved the Santa Ynez Inn! We stayed there for 2 nights and were sad to leave. Our room was 202 and we were shocked at the size of the room. It was so spacious and we thought the extra touches such as the steam showers and tub and room sound system were just wonderful. The hotel basically provided any amenities that you might need including slippers which are so rare for hotels to now offer. The staff was wonderful and the gourmet breakfasts were delicious. My only tiny suggestion is for the hotel to update their hotel info booklets. The info seemed a bit outdated and not entirely accurate based on the info provided by the front desk staff. Overall, I would go back to the Santa Ynez Inn without a doubt!

Room Tip: Room 202 didn't have a balcony since it was a corner room.

This place was wonderful! We didn't want to leave. The beds were so comfortable, there was direct TV, comfortable robes, delicious breakfast every morning, desserts at night, and much more. The service was spectacular. The staff really tries to accommodate its guests, and are very friendly. The restaurant, which provides room service, was absolutely delicious. We recommend this place to anyone who wants some rest and relaxation, or some romantic time with a special person.

We stayed here for 2 nights to tour the wine country. The hotel offers a free breakfast, free hors d'oeuvres and free desserts. These treats allowed us to meet other people staying at the hotel and share experiences with them. The dessert chef is top notch, so make sure you try the desserts. We were not taken with the omelets one morning, the poached eggs served the following day were much better.

The front desk personnel were helpful with suggestions for food and touring. If you go on the Foxen Canyon wine trail bring lunch - best advice we got on our trip.


We had a large comfortable room. The hotel room was quirky. The toilet was in a separate room from the sink and shower, The toilet room had a pocket door which was a pain to open and close Our cell phone service was spotty at best. Thank goodness we had a first floor room, we had to go outside to get decent reception.

We have made several trips to the santa ynez valley, staying someplace different each time and the Santa Ynez inn has been my favorite by far. The rooms are charming and comfortable, the staff was very helpful at making reservations for us and arranged a last minute wine tour when our original booking fell through. The nightly wine and appetizer hour is wonderful and is a great opportunity to mingle with other guests. The complimentary breakfast is fantastic, and there are other amenities which most other hotels charge for such as bottled water and WiFi. My wife also had a massage at the on site spa which was excellent.

We stayed here for 3 nights while we toured the wine country. Our room was enormous and extremely comfortable. Couldn't ask for better. Clean, comfortable, quiet and welcoming. Food was great as well as the wine. I highly recommend staying here if you are gong to Santa Ynez. Great location close to awesome restuarants that are walking distance. Christina was very helpful with setting up our wine tour and dinner reservations. I cant say enough nice things about this place. Go for yourself and see.
