“Beautiful Inn, excellent service. Great for a romantic weekend!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay in Temecula. The staff are above-and-beyond with customer-service, the Inn and grounds are beautiful, and the food and wine were delicious. They also have a great little lounge called "The Cellar", which was a lot of fun. We were there for a wedding (great wedding venue) but would definitely stay again in a heartbeat!

I want to thank all of the Ponte Vineyard team that made our stay another great memory, and thank you so much for the complimentary bottle of wine you provided in our room for the birthday celebration. My congratulations on a job well done, yet once again!

This is my first impression of this place.
We stayed here this past Thursday and Friday nights June 19&20. The hotel is very pretty and the rooms are nice and spacious. The employees that work there are very nice and accommodating. My girlfriend was getting married so I asked them. at the last minute, if they could decorate their room for their arrival. The staff was very nice about it and was able to take care of that for me. Rose pedals all over, a bottle of wine and chocolate covered strawberries. They thoroughly enjoyed seeing that when they arrived. The next day, when I checked out of my room, I forgot my computer in my room. They sent someone up to look for it and they found it! Yay!! They called me back to let me know. They are great!!!
On another note... I was rather disappointed with our service from the restaurant side. We chose to sit outside and it was hot. It seemed to take longer that I thought it should to get anything we needed. i.e.: water, breakfast. The staff was polite but they didn't seem to have that attentiveness to them. They would get what we needed but we had to ask for it. Then it took kind of a long time to get it. I would like to go back a second time just to see if this was an isolated incident. It is a beautiful winery. I have had great service at their wine tasting room and the restaurant on that side!

Room Tip: The double queen bed rooms seem to be larger than the king bed rooms. Love the large balconies!!

We visited the Temecula area for the very first time and decided to splurge and stay at the Ponte Winery and resort. It is a beautiful area, beautiful adobe resort, and the people are so pleasant, but I felt it was way over priced for what we received. The room was very comfortable, but the view was of the winery and parking lot. We had requested a view of the back where the vineyards are. The food was way over priced. We asked about a wine tasting guide, but decided to go on our own when we were given the prices. We visited other wineries and had a blast. The people were awesome and the wine was wonderful. When we got back to the Ponte Winery we went in to taste their wine and the lady told us it was $20 for one taste. We paid $10 for 3 taste at the other wineries. Lorimar Vineyard had free music and wine tasting for $10. The best view of Temecula is at the Bella vista winery. Howard was wonderful there and we received 5 selections of wine for $12. Beautiful view at the top of the this winery. Wonderful people there. Temecula is a beautiful place to visit, but unless you just want to spend lots of money I would visit the wineries on my own and enjoy the other places in the area.

Green Features: Very environmentally friendly. Air conditioner cuts off when you open the balcony door. They request you reuse the towels. Sheets are changed upon request.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at Ponte Vineyard Inn. We are pleased that you enjoyed the resort and service overall. We sincerely apologize if some of our amenities did not meet your expectations. Just to clarify about the tasting prices: On the weekends, Ponte Winery offers 6 tastes (1 flight) for $20; $15 on weekdays. Also, some of the overnight packages we offer include free tasting tickets if cost is a concern. We feel that Ponte offers a level of service, ambiance and wine quality that justifies our tasting prices, but we do regret your experience and invite you to try us again mid-week or off-season, when our pricing is lower.

My wife and I have stayed at Ponte at least a half dozen times in the past year and it's our favorite weekend, typically mid-week, getaway!

The hotel is beautiful, the rooms luxurious and comfortable, and the staff amazing friendly and always ready to please. There is a wonderful lounge in the hotel cellar with live music on some evenings. Delicious food at Bouquets, in the hotel, and next door at the winery.

The grounds are fantastic too. We've spent many evenings and early mornings strolling through the vineyards and citrus orchards and the small lake and open fire pits make a wonderful spot to enjoy the night sky.

We live just about an hours away from Temecula and have stayed at many of the nearby properties. Since we discovered Ponte our wandering days are over. This hotel is our first and only destination when visiting to wine country.

The hotel also offers a great discount for members of their Wine Club. We'll worth joining if your a frequent guest, like us!

Room with a view of the vineyards & pond. Too bad the fencing around the balcony we had was so dense you could not sit & enjoy the view. Ate at Bouquet for dinner. Excellent! Breakfast was equally good except we had to move from the outdoor patio to inside because of the flies. Enjoyed visiting the wineries in the area & lunch @ Krush & Brew down town.

Thank you for reviewing your stay at Ponte Vineyard Inn. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your room, breakfast & dinner at Bouquet and winery tastings in Temecula Wine Country.

Regarding the flies on property: Ponte Family Estate is surrounded by farmland on all four sides and at this time of year, it is customary for farmers practicing sustainability in agriculture to farm with fresh compost instead of chemical fertilizers. The flies are attracted temporarily and then dissipate quickly. This is simply a natural by-product of staying in the country-side.

We welcome you back anytime - thanks again!

I choose this Inn based on the reviews I read on tripadvisor. We desired to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in a relaxed beautiful setting and that was what we got. The Inn is a Mission structure that is beautifully done, the upstairs king bed rooms are very comfortable and just the right size for a couple, beds are comfortable, pillows are plentiful and feather, the bathroom allows for 2 to shower and get dressed easily. Every morning we opened the French doors and received the cool morning air stepped out to view the green vineyards and watch the hot air balloons fly in the gorgeous blue sky over 4 mornings. We enjoyed our coffee/tea from the Krueig machine they have in the room and just relaxed while we planned our days. You are literally immersed in the vineyards and the energy allows you to slow down and enjoy your time there.. We did the Grapeline wine tour, which they set up for us, they provided us w/ a bottle of Ponte wine from their vineyard and we drank it 1 evening as we sat outside around the fire pit they have in their beautiful courtyard just outside our room, so peaceful. Their wine is VERY good! The tour was a great way to see the area. We recommend it. We visited their Cellar Lounge downstairs which is very tastefully done, great place to meet up w/people, relax have a drink or grab a lite bite to eat. We ate in the Boutique restaurant, which we found to be very over priced. I had the sea scallops that gave me 3 scallops and a smearing of mashed potatoes and I mean only a smearing, for $ 38. My husband had the Filet with mashed potatoes. $38. The salad was $10 and it was very good, wine of course was wonderful. We did Ponte wine tasting, the tickets were provided to us for free and we really enjoyed that experience, wished we would have done their wine tour. We then had lunch outdoors at the restaurant that was behind the tasting rooms, very nice setting, beautiful grounds. The town of Temecula is a very nice area and you would want to visit also Temecula Old Town, very interesting area. All of the staff was very pleasant and helpful, Felica was so very helpful to us. We will definitely be back to experience more of what they have to offer!

Green Features: They seem to be very involved w/sustainability and they place in the rooms ways we can help too.
