"The Ballard Inn is my favorite place to stay in the Santa Ynez Valley wine country. It's a modern bed & breakfast with old world style. The rooms are spacious and many offer king size beds. The restaurant is outstanding - Chef Budi (who also owns the inn) has a well deserved reputation for high end ..."food. Go for the weekday package that includes $100 toward dinner - you won't regret the room or the meal.

"Every time we are in the area we have stayed at many different places none of which have been a favorite, but the Ballard so far is the best place we have stayed. The rooms are clean, but older. The bed was comfortable and we liked the Pelegrino in the room as well as the cookies at the nightly tu..."rn down. The appetizers in the evening were very creative, tasty and plentiful and breakfast was very good. The Ballard Inn advertise complementary WiFi, however, two people could not use it at the same time and once you stopped using it even for 1 minute you would have to log back in. This caused a slight issue in the morning when we were both trying to log in to read our local paper and check email. Overall it was a nice place to stay.

"We have been back to the Ballard Inn four times, and we find it one of the most special inns that we have ever stayed at. The rooms are comfortable and interesting, there is complementary WiFi, and the owners and staff are friendly and helpful. The main building is beautiful, with a large common..." room that is a pleasant place to talk; we have met some very interesting guests there. Great coffee and sparkling water are available most of the day, and delicious cookies appear on the pillows every evening. One of the main pleasures is the happy hour every day that includes wine and a nice spread of cheese, fruit, and some other appetizers. The wrap-around porch has rocking and deck chairs and makes a relaxing place to just sit and breathe in the fresh air. Cell phone reception is spotty at best, but that just adds to the relaxing atmosphere.
