My husband and I were married at the Santa Ynez Inn. We live in Colorado so the logistics of planning was a little tough, however, Bethany and her entire staff at the Inn were so incredibly helpful, accmodating and professional due to the distance between us when it came to planning. The food was amazing and they were receptive to any changes/suggestions that we had with the menu. The Santa Ynez Inn is in perfect location to all the delicious wine you will be able to taste within the valley. It is also walking distance to Trattoria Grappolo one of the best Italian restaurants you will ever eat at! The rooms at the Santa Ynez Inn are enormous and will make you feel like royalty. The Inn is very charming, comfortable and full of class!

We stayed here over the holidays and were pleasantly surprised. The room was very comfortable and contained amenities that I would expect at a more expensive price (whirlpool tub, steam shower, balcony...). I enjoyed the hot tub and the breakfast was tasty but the best part were the Happy Hour and, later on, complimentary desserts. These brought people together. My husband and I aren't usually very social but really enjoyed the conversations by the fire with a glass of wine, some good cheese and very nice people. The hotel seemed to promote a warm friendly atmosphere. Very nice hotel that exceeded our expectations.

Yes, we had our wedding (60-something people) at the Santa Ynez Inn. It was perfection. Guests who stayed at the Inn were forever spoiled by the beauty of the rooms and graciousness of the staff. Guests who came in for the wedding only were thrilled with the food at our reception and the charm of the grounds. But this isn't a wedding factory! No, the SYI is a charming boutique property built with couples in mind, especially those interested in weekends of wine tasting, touring the Santa Barbara area and mountains, and taking a quick turn at the casino (that's essentially directly across the highway). Some highlights:

Individually decorated rooms, many with jaw-dropping bathrooms and tons of space.

Gourmet breakfast included with the room rate. It's amazing. I still think about those blueberry scones.

Wine and hors d'oeuvres every evening. This is a great opportunity to mingle with the hotel's other guests, reliably fascinating and friendly people.

Dessert at night. Just in case you didn't get enough calories during the day.

Plus, it's in the heart of SYI, a very small community with adorable shops, and a stone's throw from Solvang.

No, they're not paying me. We really did love it that much. Go!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in the newer, renovated section of the hotel. They're more modern (the hotel has a Victorian theme) and tend to be larger.

Loved the Santa Ynez Inn. Great stay, great treatment by the staff. Loved the wine and cheese pairings in the early evenings as well as the desserts. The room and bathroom were both well appointed. The bathroom had heated flooring. The steam shower had heated flooring and seating. Great bathtub. I took two bubble baths during my stay! The room also had it's own patio and was right next to the hot tub.
I especially loved the location in the town. You could leave the car in the lot and walk next door to the Vineyard house or to Grappalo. It was a very nice get away.
