“Close Enough to Perfect for Me!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Meadowlark Inn is a very charming place to spend a few days. The people were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good and the ambience delightful. Our room was cozy, clean and comfortable. I wish we had had more time to hang out around the motel to sip our coffee in the morning and our wine in the afternoon. The two chairs outside our room were perfect for doing just this and enjoying the beautiful surroundings at the motel.

Traveling south down 101 we were lucky enough to happen upon some other reviews and photos of the Meadowlark , and even luckier to find that a room was available. After a brief false start caused by bad Googlemaps directions, we arrived at the Inn which is actually easily found right along Hwy 246 slightly outside and east of busy Solvang. As soon as we drove up the drive, I knew we had made a great choice. The beautiful center court garden and peaceful atmosphere were very welcoming. There are shaded patios, some with fountains, providing a little water music in front of every room. Each has chairs or love seats to enjoy. Brigitte, our host, recommended excellent wine from an extensive list, which we enjoyed after a nice dinner in nearby Santa Ynez. Extremely comfortable bed with nice linens and spa toiletries provided a peaceful night's rest. We regret that we had plans which prohibited us from partaking of the full breakfast (with homemade waffles) that we could smell from the breakfast room the next morning. We will definitely return to the Meadowlark Inn on our next trip up the coast.

It was a simple stay that was perfect for wine country explorations in the Santa Ynez Valley. The check-in process was easy and I loved the wine-cork key holder! The room was light and airy. We were able to turn the AC on easily and had nice bedding, shower, etc. The free Wi-Fi worked great throughout my stay.
The breakfast -- and chef Margaret -- was fantastic!! Delicious quiche, banana bread, hard boiled eggs, waffles (for the kids), yogurt and granola, coffee/tea/juice. It was much more than it needed to be and it was completely/surprisingly lovely.
It's the perfect location near the Rancho Marketplace grocery and smack dab between Santa Ynez and Solvang. It was very calm and quiet -- felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The outdoor area had a bbq pit and plenty of lounge chairs to read a book in the garden.

Room Tip: We booked the simple queen room and it was perfect for two people (friends or couple). I do hear som...

My husband and I spent two nights at the Meadowlark Inn and loved the quaint setting, friendliness and charm of it! We will definitely stay there again as we explore the Santa Ynez Valley wineries. Loved it!

We stayed for 4 + weeks during construction on our home. My husband has trouble sleeping and we looked for the quietest hotel around, and this is it. The staff (Margaret and Kelly) are amazing. They both treated us like family, and were always friendly and super helpful. I would come back based on them alone. The hotel is beautifully decorated and tranquil. The Christmas lights at night on the grand oak tree is so pretty I wanted to get married there! Wonderful wedding hotel! The rooms were huge, comfortable, and clean. We had such a good time, it was sad to go home!!

We spent a lovely Easter weekend in Solvang and Santa Inez Valley. For lodging we looked at many options and settled for this lovely Bed& Breakfast option. I was so happy with the choice. The place is well maintained , with beautiful grounds, old Oak trees , gorgeous flowers and a friendly attendant. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast was plentiful and the stay was well worth it. This is our new favorite place when we are in So Cal!!!

Room Tip: Either room 14 or 16 .

Exactly what I have been looking for in a place in the Santa Ynez Valley! The grounds are lovely and quiet. I can't say enough about the staff, so friendly and welcoming. We had such a great breakfast with other guests and staff member Margaret, it was like having breakfast with family. Our room was clean and comfortable, I slept like a baby. I loved looking out at the small garden behind the bathroom and watching the scrubjays and wild hares foraging in the morning. My family and I enjoyed the sunset and early evening around the firepit, a perfect end to a fun wine tasting day. Very quiet location, feels like you are in the countryside, but easy access to Solvang, Los Olivos and environs. This will be my new home away from home in the Santa Ynez Valley!
