The Wine Valley Inn and Cottages was a very nice place to stay -- as long as you want to stay in a kitschy, touristy little hamlet like Solvang. The room was very spacious -- a good-sized living room with a small fridge, big bathroom, and a few steps down into a large bedroom area. The room was nicely decorated and quiet, even though the hotel is only a couple of blocks from what Solvang has to offer. They offer a wine-tasting happy hour downstairs with local wines at an OK price with some cheese and crackers. The price was about half of what the other 3-star places nearby were charging.
It was very warm when we were there, so I wished they had a pool but alas, no.
My other pet peeve has nothing to do with the hotel. Solvang is way too touristy for my taste. It's a small town, and I saw all that I was interested in a couple of hours. Next time I want to tour the Santa Ynez Valley, I will probably stay in a different town, maybe San Luis Obispo.
