“Excellent! Perfect Getaway and Relaxing Comfort”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Large rooms and bathroom with separate shower and whirlpool bath. Although the Inn is newly constructed, it has Victorian ambience combined with current comforts. Excellent price with many extras included - cooked breakfast, afternoon wine and cheese tasting and evening dessert and coffee. Several restaurants within easy walking distance. No pool, but nice jacuzzi.

Room Tip: Room 103 is good for disabled access with wide doorways and the toilet is separate from the large ba...

What a great little place. Was very well kept, food was great, and staff was very attentive. Will stay there again for sure! The location is perfect. 10 minutes from Los Olivos, 15 minutes from Buellton. Central to tons of great wineries. We also did the package that included the wine tasting tour by Stagecoach which we highly recommend. They were punctual, and took us to great wineries, including an exclusive one that wasn't even open to the public. The staff also sent us complimentary tickets to a concert at the nearby Chumash casino.

Santa Ynez Inn is a wonderful inn outside Solvang and Los Olivos. Great breakfast, wine reception and dessert daily. We never ate anywhere else on out stay! No pool but nice hot tub. Gym equipment could use an update but otherwise wonderful! We got a coupon on Vacationist that made it very affordable.

If you want to feel really special, visit the beautiful Santa Ynez Inn. We made our arrangements with the efficient and delightful Jessica and from that point on our experience was flawless. The rooms are pristine and beautifully decorated, the afternoon reception had a delicious selection of wines and hors d’oeuvres, evening dessert was a treat for our taste buds and for breakfast we had the perfect poached eggs special prepared by Olivia and served by friendly and knowledgeable Christina. We felt like the entire staff truly appreciated our business. Walk in those doors and escape to another time.

What a wonderful surprise the San Ynez Inn was. Bed and Breakfast style with gourmet breakfasts, afternoon local wines with hors d'oeuvres and even delicious desserts nightly.
Delightful staff, beautifully decorated large rooms. About 5 miles from Solvang. Will definitely be returning.

we really liked this place. Spent four nights there. Loved the breakfast. Loved the amenities liked heated bathrooms floors, heated bench seat in the shower, etc. Room was great. The spa was nice and private. The grounds were kept very welll. Staff was nice and friendly. They made good restaurant suggestions. What could have been better?
I know these are small but they all added up to the slight departure from an excellent. When having breakfast and we poured our own coffee, water etc. when staff was walking around they could have offered to pour more. When we asked about traffic to LA and if there was a radio station to listen to, the answer was "I don't know". Of course they could have stretched here. When asked how to get to the nearest beach, we were told to go back to Santa Barbara when there was a closer beach.
But we would go back, that's for sure.

Room Tip: You can walk to 2-3 good restaurants.

We loved everything about the Santa Ynez Inn. The staff was welcoming and made us feel right at home. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed our evening wine & cheese (included, as is a delicious breakfast) on the lawn outside under the windmill. Location is great and all towns in the valley are easily accessible. We would recommend this for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway!
