Nice place, nice surrounding environment. But watch out for their cancellation fees, which I feel are excessive. If you cancel your reservation, no matter how far out your stay is or whether you just placed the reservation five minutes earlier, you are subject to a $25 cancellation fee. I don't think this is a very traveler-friendly policy, and I will...

Very clean and great customer service. Warning no TV in the room! You can request one but its only 17". The restaurant is 5 star. Breakfast is part of your room fee and is marvelous. It even includes breakfast specials.

Good friends had been coming to this B&B for years, always raving about it. I wonder if that "bias" made me more against than in favor of this hotel. Built in 1985 specifically as a B&B, I have to wonder why some items weren't better addressed. Specifically, why do you leave the bathroom sink near the door of the room...

In the small town of Ballard, CA. there is a lovely B&B called the Ballard Inn. The town is so small that if you removed the Ballard Inn, there would be no town. But I digress. This is a truly charming place in the center of town. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Everyone gets a personal tour (here...

We booked this bed and breakfast at the last minute and got one of the last rooms. Arrived just after wine tasting but we were offered a glass while we checked in. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was fully booked and we knew why! The food was delicious and wine list perfect. A great stay in SB wine...

We stayed at Ballard Sun-Wed. It was a great little getaway. Very relaxing area to visit and the hotel is quite nice. Our room was large and bright and we enjoyed the delicious and fresh breakfast. We only had a chance to experience the afternoon wine and snacks on one day, and it was all also quite nice. Maybe the...

Ballard Inn is a nice base for Santa Ynez wine tasting and relaxing. Ballard is a quieter alternative that Los Olivos or Solvang yet minutes from both. It is a one horse town but that is the charm. Rooms are nice and comfy, many with fireplaces in them. Great beds and rooms offer a great place to relax after a...

Had a wonderful quiet weekend in Ballard. Visited local wineries. The inn had helpful maps and recommendations. Afternoon wine tasting and snacks were excellent. Lemonade on the porch was greatly appreciated. Rooms were lovely. It was nice to have no phone or tv in the room.

We stayed at the Ballard Inn on Memorial Weekend. As we drove up we thought what a nice place. We checked in and one of the staff showed us around the Inn. We were told of the complimentary appetizers and wine on Saturday night in one of the sitting rooms. She also showed us the room. Very nice room indeed....
