We loved this place. Clean, cozy, good location, good price, nice people. Our room was decorated just as you would hope an inn near wineries would be. Not sterile and "hotel-like." I would definitely stay here again. The breakfast was served "B&B" style, personally served with good conversation among the guests. Easy drive into town and wineries. Another plus -... More

It was so fabulous to stay at the Meadowlark! What a great location. Close to Santa Barbara. And close enough to walk or drive into downtown Solvang. Many many wineries. The Inn is so incredibly charming and the staff is friendly and professional. Every need was met. And the breakfast!! Amazing. And once a week wine tasting. Need I say... More

For all us “city” folks in the hustle and bustle of Southern California there are many retreats we may escape to and recharge our batteries. Meadowlark Inn in Solvang is such a place.

Comfortable, clean room, friendly staff. Affordable accommodations, senior rates available on some weekdays. Chairs for sitting outside your room a nice touch. Home style breakfast included, better than the chain hotels. There is a shaded sitting area with tables in the center that includes a fire pit for evening warmth. Centrally located for wine tasting vineyard visits. Minor issue is... More

I've stayed in several hotels in Solvang over the years, and my most recent stay was here at Meadowlark Inn. It's now the favorite. The room was remarkably pristine and clean. It had character without being cluttered. Our room was also very spacious. The grounds are pretty and lush and there are pleasant nooks to sit in outside and enjoy... More

This was our second stay at the Meadowlark Inn. As with the first time, everything was great. The grounds are gorgeous and filled with a wonderful array of trees, plants and flowers at least a dozen different types of birds.

This is our go-to place when staying over in Santa Ynez Valley. It was originally built as a motor inn, but has been nicely redecorated as a wine country inn. Many of the rooms have a separate suite from the bedroom. It is quiet and the beds are comfy.

We found our favorite hotel in Solvang. We decided a week before the holiday to get out if town. Only place I could get two consecutive nights was at the Meadowlark Inn. Was not my first choice as it was 2 miles out of town. Turned out to be a better choice than a hotel in the middle of Solving.... More
