From the moment we arrived we were given amazing service and made to feel at home. The rooms were spacious and well kept. The breakfast service was exceptional with very personal attention by the caretaker. She gets up early each day to put together special breakfast items from local produce and shops. Truly a wonderful experience. The coffee was also quite good -much better than what I usually get at large hotels and chains.

I have stayed at the Meadowlark Inn several times before, and it's my "go to" place when visiting the Santa Ynez/Solvang area. This past visit, my best friend traveled up from Temecula for a get together,and it was her first stay at the Inn. As I knew she would, she loved it, and now wants to return with her husband. I was sorry to miss Brigitte, but Kelly's warm and friendly manner made our stay very comfortable. The surrounding grounds are so peaceful, a lovely spot to have appetizers and wine, or the Inn's homemade breakfast (yummy!) and coffee. As I said in the beginning, home away from home.

We recommend a BBQ and potluck. They have a nice table under a beautifully lit oak tree.

Beautiful and relaxing place!! But the bed was not comfortable at all.

The only downside: Due to the fact that I was traveling with dogs my stay was restricted to a more expensive, larger room. I would have preferred the option for a smaller, less expensive room and pay a larger up-front security deposit. The grounds are well maintained and very nice. The room was clean and comfortable. I didn't have breakfast there but I did stop by and there were quite a few options available (warm and cold). I liked the fact that they offered a very wide variety of wines for purchase.

Just stayed one night, the room was clean and pleasingly attired. The grounds were well maintained and lovely. I will stay at this cozy little Inn during future visits to this area, it was delightful.

Had a wonderful time at the Meadowlark Inn in Solvang...stayed for 5 days during their Danish Days celebration. Rooms, breakfast and staff were great, and the grounds are lovely for relaxing. Would definitely recommend this place!

Went with Mom to Chumash Casino to see Concert and stayed in the most wonderful place called Meadowlard Inn. Clean, Comfortable, best mattress I have ever slept on (including 4 Star Hilton) and wonderful atmosphere. Cannot say enough. FABULOUS WONDERFUL and I don't say that ever! Really!

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.
