Travel the Highway West to Sideways Inn where you can unwind in a freshly updated rustic room with the Danish charm of nearby Solvang. Enjoy California's breathtaking central coast with a variety of amenities at our attached sister property Flying Flags. Guests can enjoy the resort swimming pool, playground, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Sideways Inn also allows guests to easily access many of the area's most popular attractions and destinations. Wine tasting at a local winery, the charming town of Solvang, and the serene surroundings of Lake Cachuma and Los Padres National Forest are just a few of the points of interest situated just moments away from our resort. The inn itself is an attraction as it was one of the shooting locations for the film Sideways. If you are looking for a memorable vacation experience in California's wine country, look no further than Sideways Inn!

A charming place with touches of character that lift the ambiance of this small hotel, such as the wine quotes in the lobby and by the hot tub, lights around the pool at night and the fire pits that draw people together at night. The rooms are well furnished. They have wooden

Does anyone know what the hours are for the hot tub and is the pool heated?
Hi, we went to this hotel in July, the pool &Spar closed at 10pm at that time of year. Not sure if pool was heated as temperature was 111° so no need to heat pool

I have no clue what my dog weighs. So do you guys weigh them?
I guess I'm confused about the question. Our dogs were under 20 LBS. They get weighed at the vet every time we go. I don’t know if the Sideways Inn has a weight limit for dogs, You should contact them directly

"We had a king room on the lower floor which was very quiet."
"Lower courtyard rooms have easy access to pool."
"The first floor rooms with a slider have an outdoor sitting area with a view of the pool."
"Some rooms have a patio adjacent to the pool, request in advance if you'd like one."
"Choose to spend a few extra dollars to get a courtyard view to avoid the freeway noise."
US$106 - US$260 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
