Very nice property well maintained, difficult driving in and out due to location, very heavy traffic on main road.

Upgraded rooms

felt updated and cared for….great bar

Loved everything about this hotel!

What we thought was unique was that we discovered (because there was 34 of us total) that we had all paid a different price for our rooms. The most expensive being my room which I booked though Orbitz. I stayed four nights and the average price was around $200 a night. The cheapest was $95 a night and they had booked their room two days before while the rest of us had reservations for several months. Yes, it was nice but night that nice. I was heady in my room except for to sleep and that's it.

I like the properties unique layout. And King room we stayed was big and comfortable

The good: excellent, efficient communication via text. Breakfast delivered to your room - the banana bread was very tasty despite being prepackaged, and the fruit were really good too. Facility is remodeled and trendy looking like straight out of pinterest. Having a sink and countertop near the coffee maker, micro and frig is super convenient. The bad: The same breakfast for more than two days can be monotonous and the yogurt is not the good kind. Room has insufficient lighting - bedside lights are too dim. No full length mirror. Pro tip: use your window outside. The ugly: the low flow shower! Oh how I dislike a low flow shower. Be sure to turn on the heating lamp and close the barn door or it will feel like you're really taking a shower in a barn. And, being in a room above the bar. Especially after asking for a quiet room arriving on a Thursday. The bar is supposed to shut at 10:00 pm, but the sounds of happy revelers went on past midnight.

Front desk was awesome, polite. Super close to all wineries and solvang.

Nice place , clean, large room but the bed was very hard and uncomfortable.

This is a gem, we never expected such a cute and wonderful place to stay

Have stayed here in past but had no idea on remodel. Wow- looks fantastic!! We loved our stay and will def be back. Thank you!

They let me change rooms because the first floor allows pets and my allergies were acting up from the dander. That was nice of them. And they left a cute and yummy breakfast on our door.

Rooms were very clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Love decor of room

Friendly staff, very clean, easy check in/out. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful hotel, very clean, will definitely go back

The exterior of the property was a little run down, but the lobby, and rooms have recently been redone. For the price , this is a good choice.is also right along the highway which was a concern, but we had a room in the back and it was quiet. Breakfast was included, and it was delivered to your room- limited choices, nothing warm...banana bread, yogurt and/ or fruit.

June checked us in and provided an overview of the benefits as well as a bottle for our anniversary, which was super sweet! We skipped room cleaning one night and received $5 coupon for the bar, which was a great place to watch some football. Staff was attentive and friendly. Love this place!

Nice location and nice property with unique taste and touch
