I loved loved loved the wine valley inn. I was visiting the Santa Ynez Valley for work and booked a suite at the Wine Valley Inn from Monday thru Saturday for only about 100 a day. I was working out in Santa Maria and became concerned that the drive might be too long, and to my surprise, when I called to cancel my room, I was told that I had been upgraded to the cottage! What could I do? I kept my reservation of course and the drive to Santa Maria was not bad at all. I brought my boyfriend along and we told the cottage was gorgeous...we had a private balcony, a separate private courtyard with a hot tub, a small kitchen, dining room, large living room with a sofa bed, s fireplace and a TV in the living room and in the bedroom. The bedroom was upstairs with a full bathroom. There is a 1/2 bathroom downstairs. I booked the reservation about two months in advance and during the winter season so maybe that's why I got lucky with the upgrade.
The only con is that the rooms are not internet accessible so I had to rely on phone's small screen to view the net.
The inn also gave us complimentary wine tasting passes at the presidio winery. The lady at that winery was very informative and personable. For breakfast we went to Paulas pancake house and it was delicious. We enjoyed the Danish pancakes the most. The food at Angelicas was great but make sure you make reservations.And if you liked the movie Sideways, head 2miles down the road to Buelton and visit the infamous Hitching Post. My boyfriend and I loooove to eat so Solvang was good to us. Just keep in mind that shops do close early, so if your looking to go wine tasting, make sure you get on it by 3 or 4.
Well, I hope you'll find my review helpful and enjoy your trip!
