One word... Wow.

Awesome area, great spacious rooms and fantastic breakfasts. One of the few hotels that provided the luxury of home while being on the road. They provide wine and appetizers in the evening. If you go, make sure to check out the Italian restaurant next door -- the chef is truly Italian and very welcoming.

The Santa Ynez Inn is new Inn with all the amenities you could wish for but with Victorian charm. The service was top notch. Included hors d'oevres with wine tasting at 5 pm and desserts at 8:30 pm were wonderful. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful as well. All this is served in a beautifully decorated dining room. Every detail of this hotel was addressed and attended to. Our room was beautiful and romantic and inclued fireplace, balcony and had a large whirlpool tub and steam shower. All in all, it was a fantastic experience. We will certainly revisit the Inn whenever we are able. A real treasure and pleasure.

beautiful place for a romantic getaway or wedding. In the middle of wine country and within 15 minutes of all nearby wineries. I would listen to their recommendations for local restaurants and wineries. They could make reservations for you and get appointment to private wineries. Demetria Winery a 100% must see. Breakfast included and very good. Wine and cheese before dinner hour before dinner very good. Dessert hour after dinner acceptable although no chocolate and only one choice. Overall relaxing and comfortable.

It's not often that I rave about a hotel but this place is special. Santa Ynes a great base for exploring the wine country and I can't imagine a more elegant place to stay. The staff are professional, courteous and very helpful. We booked though Travel Zoo and my wife and I were amazed at the value for money. I could go on to describe more but one thing is certain, you can believe everything that you read on the website and not be disappointed.

Wow! This hotel looks like a mansion in an old west town. The staff is so awesome and you get a list of DVDs you can borrow from the for free when you check in which I took full advantage of. I had a king suite and it was amazing. Heated tile floors in the bathroom and a huge waterfall shower as well as a hot tub sized bath tub. I had a fridge with two waters complimentary then went to the cocktail hour where the served high end appetizers and local wine by the fire place in the lobby. I also got a breakfast (hot) in their elegant living room. The chocolates on the pillow were even top of the line. I will go back and back, best without kids as it is so romantic.

Unfortunately we stayed only 1 night on way back from San Francisco to Los Angeles before cathching flight to France. Absolutely amazing! The hosts were charming, and breakfast was made to request in the morning. Rooms are beautiful and enormous. The automatic remote controlled chimney is out of this world. Will be back for a longer relaxing stay another time for sure.

A good bit of money was spent on this inn by somebody with taste out of the old T.V. series Dallas. The hotel simply lacks style and class that you would associate with their rate level.
