Almost Heaven

3.0 on September 16, 2014

Some hits and some misses on this quaint just-out-of-town Inn. Perfect distance from the town of Solvang to avoid the hordes of tourists that sometimes descend. Excellent for cyclists! There is an adorable bike path just across from the hotel that you can take into town avoiding the rode. We leisurely biked into Solvang for dinner (BRING A HEADLAMP if biking at night- no lights along path) and as well, fantastic location to bike the surrounding country roads. If we'd stayed longer we would've biked into Los Olivos for lunch. Very few hills and honor system farm stands along the way. Bike to wineries and adorable mini-horse/donkey/bison ranches along the way. Short country drives if you don't brink bikes. We fell in love with Buttonwood wineries! The breakfast at the Inn was superb. Unfortunately it was too hot to eat outside so we were cramped into the too small indoor eating area. Our room was charming with the exception of the extremely cheap coffee maker and rough towels you would expect at a $39/night interstate hotel. None of our electronic devices could pick up the WiFi. The hotel grounds were poorly laid out so that you're looking out at the busy road from the cute benches. And the parking layout felt like a motor-inn with cars parked at the door. Our room was next to the house-keeping storage- so that was added noise. We looked out our back window at a church- so I'm not sure what a Sunday Morning would be like for the rooms on our side. Otherwise- very quiet night for us. For the mid-week price we paid, we felt we got our value. But I would expect more from their weekend rates that don't quite live up to the select pictures on the website.

Great retreat near Santa Ynez wineries.

A wonderful retreat for a quiet weekend and wine tasting. The grounds are nicely landscaped with plenty of space to just relax, read a book, or sip wine purchased at one of the many vineyards in the Santa Ynez valley. Perfectly located for wine tasting and many excellent nearby restaurants in Santa Ynez. We stayed in the Pinot Noir room which was spacious and had nice comfortable beds.

Charming and retro inn!

My husband and I were looking for a charming and affordable place to stay while we were winetasting in the Santa Ynez Valley. We fell in love with this place! Great setting and quiet location! From the outside it resembles a mid-century motel but the inn has been remodeled so the rooms and grounds are more like cottages. Staff were very friendly and the small breakfast yummy! We will definitely return!

simply wonderful

Stayed at the Meadowlark Inn last weekend and wished we could have stayed a bit longer... it was such a charming place, the grounds are beautiful, the breakfast was delicious, the owner was a super nice lady, and the room we stayed in had a hot tub in the patio and a seriously comfortable mattress that gently rocked me to sleep :)... the location is also very pleasant, as it is just a few minutes away from the touristy center of Solvang... what more can one ask for? We will definitely come back and stay here again!!

Nice B&B

Meadowlark is appropriately named as it has a large park-like garden in the center of the property. Our room was very nice, and comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. We will be going back.

Lovely stay and centrally located to wine country!

We will definitely be back to the Inn for our next stay in Santa Ynez! Brigitte (the owner) was a wonderful tour guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our wine tour with her. I recommend the tour to anyone familiar or not familiar with the area. She took us to 4 awesome wineries that weren't too popular or over-crowded, which was wonderful! The breakfast was filling and delicious and the hot tub attached to our room was romantic, private and fabulous! This is a charming Inn and I would recommend to all visiting the area!

Love this place!

We had the pleasure of staying over 4th of July weekend. Our family needed a getaway and this was the perfect spot to enjoy our time together. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, bbq and gazebo. We would play in the afternoon at the pool and then relax at the lawn area after dinner at the picnic tables or the gazebo. It was a wonderful weekend and the Meadowlark Inn was great. Thank you!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for the wonderful review! Much appreciated! Brigitte and staff

Overnight getaway.

My husband and I decided at the last minute to do a quick getaway for my birthday and were so happy we could get a room at the Meadowlark Inn. It was such a pleasant stay it will now be our first choice when we travel to the Santa Ynez Valley. An absolute gem.

Great Place To Stay

Very comfortable stay. Offer breakfast in the morning which was a treat that we did not stay for because we needed to get on the road but checked it out and really awesome. Dog Friendly which was needed and she loved the place too. Thanks for a great night in Solvang.
