Santa Ynez Inn introduces renovation of the Victorian-inspired hotel

The renovation saw the AAA Four Diamond property update all guestrooms, common areas, event spaces, spa and gardens.

The Santa Ynez Inn, a 20-room inn located in the foothills of Santa Barbara's wine country, has completed a renovation project that updated all guestrooms, common areas, event spaces, spa and gardens that have views of the surrounding Santa Ynez Mountain Range.

Designed after a historic turn-of-the-century inn, the hotel has fireplaces in the walls, chandeliers hanging from the high ceilings and curated art and antiques. The oversized rooms average 650 square feet with bathrooms that come with jetted whirlpool tubs, heated floors and steam showers, as well as balconies or patios overlooking the gardens.

The spa at Santa Ynez Inn has both private and couple’s treatment rooms.
