The Santa Ynez Inn is located at the edge of a very small town. The inn does charge a resort fee, but that fee includes wine tastings at several local wineries. One is with in walking distance the rest you will need to drive. The inn has a friendly staff, they have a small gym, areas to sit outdoors, an out door spa, sauna, and several public spaces. The rooms are large , quite, have TV Wi Fi piped in music, and some do have a balcony. The wind offers a full breakfast, fruit, yogurt, cereals. The wine hour was two wine a red and a white, from a local winery, while neither was of a quality that I would go out and secure a bottle, that is more a mater of personal taste and mine may be different then yours. We walked to dinner their are a few local spots, SY Kitchen, Brothers, and a Mexican Restaurant in town you will find a few shops for clothing, house hold items and hardware. You are a short distance from the Casino, a short drive to Solvang, and Los Olivos. The inn did have in the evening some cookies and decafé coffee out. Cookies were store quality but I have had friends indicate that they have had better products when they stayed so I do not know if our weekday stay with limited people in the inn made less items being put out. Would I go back yes if in the area. But if you want to just park you car and walk it is a very limited area.

Sheer Perfection!

Gorgeous room with all the amenities you could ever want. Beautiful modern bathroom. Top notch service. I didn't want to leave and can't wait to return.

Perfect for a Romantic Getaway

Although we have been to the Santa Ynez valley many times this was the first time we stayed here. The outside was deceiving as it did not look like much but the room was wonderful! We had a king room with a fireplace and a private balcony. The room was very clean and there was tranquil music in the room all day and the staff was very friendly. The location was within walking distance to great dining options and shopping.

Santa Ynez Inn, the perfect anniversary retreat

4.6 on June 08, 2010

Rarely am I overwhelmed by a hotel or inn, since we travel so much, but when my husband surprised me and took me to the Santa Ynez Inn for our 10th anniversary I didn't want to leave the room! The accomodations were special and the food was terrific. The rooms were lavishly appointed with comfy chairs by the fireplace, a grand bed and soft music playing. We watched a little television on the flat screen TV while we got ready to have some appetizers in the Inn's dining area. While they don't offer dinner, the Inn often has complimentary appetizers, wine and desserts early evening. There is also a number of wonderful dining places within walking distance. After we returned it was pleasant to stay in for the rest of the night. We were able to unwind in the spa outside, however, our own tub was spectacular in itself. An impressive jacuzzi tub and steam shower graced the bathroom, and tile floors with controllable heating elements meant no cold feet getting out of the shower! Fluffy white robes awaited in the closet. And in the morning we had coffee on our private patio. We finished it off with a wonderful complimentary breakfast of fancy french toast, breakfast quiche and fresh fruit. This place is definitely one of a kind!

Wonderful getaway!

My husband and I found the Santa Ynez Inn, and we are so glad we did! We did not know what to expect, but from the pictures online, it looked really nice. Words cannot describe how impressed we were with our room and overall experience. The room was the best hotel room we have ever stayed in (and we travel quite a bit). Very comfortable with modern amenities (fireplace, steam shower, jetted tub, heated bathroom tiles, wonderful linens-and the list could just keep going on!). The room was also very spacious. Front desk staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating- we will be back for sure!

A stop in wine country

4.4 on December 20, 2008

On a trip up the Coast from Long Beach, we were looking to spend a night in the Santa Barbara wine country .... while researching the area, I came across the Santa Ynez Inn and it looked to be exactly what we were looking for .. The town is quaint with shops to browse. The area offers several wineries to explore and have tastings. I would highly recommend the Inn for those who are looking for a cut above .. with beautiful rooms, each decorated with exquisite furniture, common areas that were comfortable and a most delicious breakfast to start your day.
