Expectation is the mother of disappointment. Having stayed at the Ballard Inn on four prior occasions, and having truly loved it, we returned with the expectation that we’d thoroughly enjoy another stay. We didn’t. We were very disappointed. Almost everything about the place was

Unfortunately you will not find any information on the locations of each room so I will attempt to help out. When you walk into the front door you immediately see a staircase leading to the second floor. I will provide the names of each room you encounter assuming you turn left

My husband brought me to this hotel as a surprise for my birthday. I have pretty high standards for a hotel and the Ballard Inn did not disappoint! Our room, the Davy Brown Room, was wonderful. The bed was comfortable and the fireplace added to the atmosphere. There are no TV'

The new remodel on the Ballard Inn is fantastic. The hotel is in a great location smack in the middle of downtown Los Olivos and Santa Ynez. It is well appointed, clean, and has incredibly friendly staff. Included was breakfast at the restaurant downstairs, our table on the deck

What do the price range vary from low to high? do you offer any special packages for birthdays and anniversaries?
Our rooms start at a rate of $265 and range to $345 per night, and include a fully cooked to order breakfast, wine and hors d'oeuvre hour, and bed turn down with house made cookies. We also have a dinner package that includes a one night stay in a classic king room and a $100 voucher towards dinner at a rate of $315 (valid Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday only). We have a Romance package with gorgeous rose petals left around the room with a bottle of Laetitia Sparkling Brut Cuvee and chocolates, which can be added to any stay for $75. Perfect way to celebrate an anniversary or birthday.

My Relatives have stayed at the Ballard and liked it a lot. Although they said the restaurant was excellent, they were disappointed with limited hours. What days/times is your restaurant open?
The Ballard Inn Restaurant is open to the public for dinner Wednesday - Sunday 5:30-9:00 PM. Breakfast service is for inn guests only and is served in the dining room from 8:00 - 10:00 AM. Please feel free to contact us should you have any further questions. 800-638-2466

"There are only two rooms with a balcony, so make sure to ask for one of these!"
"On nights when the restaurant is open (Wed-Sun), rooms on the east side are quieter."
"Every room has it’s own style. You can view on line. We had the Davy Brown room, which is not the biggest, and loved it."
"All rooms are great. Some have their own fireplaces but you can't get a bad room here."
"All the rooms seemed quiet, though the ones in the back may be quieter than in the front."
