My wife and I decided to spend our anniversary in Central Coast wine country. Beautiful area and great wineries, but we needed a romantic B&B to make the trip perfect. The Ballard Inn has been highly rated on many sites, and it is a perfect setting but with great opportunity for improvement. At $300+ per night most of us frequent travelers would expect robes in the room and plenty of plush linens. Not at the Ballard Inn. One bath towel per person- sorry ladies. No ironing board for people coming across the country? No TV in the room? OK, I can live with that. No mini-fridge in a room in wine country? Who doesn't want to stash the perfect Sauv Blanc or Viognier in the fridge to have a perfect glass while preparing for the evening?
And ask for the manager? She won't be back until Monday. The expected scheduled wine tasting at the Inn Saturday night? Canceled. No offense intended, but you would expect to have a manager on duty and maybe even access to the owners. Not here. Lot of other B&B's I would recommend well before this one. Too many disappointments here.
