Wine Valley Inn & Cottages - A Broughton Hotel
Travel Blogs from Solvang
As a final birthday treat, Kyle's boss got him two rooms in Solvang. Kyle, Sam, Rehana, Mark Megan and I headed up there for a quick two day stay. There was a lot of wine, wine tasting a fun had by all.
On our final day, while the kids hung out at home, and while Michael was at work, we managed to do some wine tasting. We visited a shop in town (lewellen something, not sure), but then we drove into tyne countryside to a beautiful place called Bridalwood. What a fantastic winery this is, with ...
... php It also has a bakery which is well known, so we stopped off for morning tea here. Coffee/chocolate milkshake and carrot cake went down a treat! See attached pics.
We then drove to Pismo Beach which wasn't too much further south. Pismo was a lovely large beach with a pier. We parked the car and walked along the pier, and got to see dolphins swimming close to the pier which was really cool! We then walked to the beach, paddled our feet ...
... NZ but we weren't keen on that so said we'd need to think about it and continued to look round the shop. The assistant pointed out some interesting rings by local jeweller John Kennedy who uses onyx as his main stone. I was taken with a silver ring featuring blue onyx bars interspersed with gold rods. Anyway to cut a long story short Deb liked at as well so we bought it as a replacement for my original wedding ring that I lost some 10 ...
6.45am was the meeting time to meet our tour group in the reception of our hotel. This was when I realised we were on a Chinese/ English tour of the US. Only a handful of people on the coach could speak English. The itinerary for the day was to 'drive along the beautiful pacific coast highway and stop in the Santa Ynez Valley's quaint Danish Village of Solvang just before lunchtime' and then make our way ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wine Valley Inn & Cottages - A Broughton Hotel Solvang
We spent two nights at the Wine Valley Inn & Cottages. I'd say that our stay was ok, but I don't know that we'd return.
Our stay at this hotel, and the setting was so perfect that I proposed to my girlfriend in cottage #1...we visited the area wineries, drove down to Santa Barbara for the day, visited a horse ranch, and walked around the local historic mission...the service was great, the coffe at breakfast was the best ever (i wish i would have remembered to ask the brand), and the cottages were very romantic (the attached jacuzzi did not hurt). We are talking about going back there for part of our honeymoon.
Good clean facility
We stayed at the Wine Valley Inn last night. Check in was a breeze. Friendly staff. Our king fireplace room was very clean as were the grounds even with the heavy rain storm. This is a three star facility and had more charm and cleaner than many four star hotels we have stayed at. Will definitely book again. Only complaint is our mattress was a little too soft.
The Wine Valley Inn, which is very inviting, is located on a quiet street only a block from the main shopping district in town. The rooms are spacious and clean, and our rooms (we stayed in two on separate nights) each had a fireplace. During the first night, we stayed on the third floor. The room was cozy and quiet, but the bed was soft and rather uncomfortable. On the second night we stayed on the second floor, near the clock tower. Great king-sized bed and large room, but we could hear people walking above us on occasion. All in all, we'd stay there again, but we'd ask for a third floor with a king-sized bed, or stay in one of the cottages, which we hear are very nice. Also, we thought the cost was a bit high considering it had a few "issues" as those mentioned above, but most places in Solvang are a bit pricey and so this was expected. But the location is wonderful and once there, you can walk almost anywhere in town. And the continental breakfasts are good and offer a variety of food, such as bagels, hard-boiled eggs, cereal, etc. -- enough to tide you over until lunchtime!
To celebrate my off track time, which is the equivalent of summer vacation for year-round schools, my husband and I wanted a quick getaway to a beautiful location for one night. We selected the Santa Ynez Valley and checked out many hotels on line.
My husband and I spent two nights at the Wine Valley Inn.
Best for the money
It was an excellent motel -- clean, up-to-date, friendly, great breakfast. It was definitely worth the extra drive to stay here instead of at one of the lesser quality places in Santa Barbara for the same or more money. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a really nice place to stay for an affordable price.
Chimney Sweep Inn is Excellent
I love this hotel. Rooms are very homey and clean. I felt I was in a fairytale. We were able to have a fire in our room and outside the window was a tree that was in full bloom so even though I had a room facing the front street I felt very secluded.
Enjoyed Our Stay
Had a basic room, when checking in was a bit disapointed on the location (faced parking lot). When asked to be moved toward the back, there was someone in the room so we were upgrated to the loft suites.
This was MUCH better and wouldn't stay in anything less.
The rooms were spacious, the location is great, the breakfast was ample and the staff were helpful and friendly.
Best time ever
I came in on a weekend at last minute notice it was very late and the staff maid every effert to make mine and my boyfriends stay very romantic they had the fire place going in our room when we got there and the next night they had a champane basket waiting for us and the loft room is the best i would recamend it to anyone and i will be back there again
