For the cost, the AC unit was extremely LOUD. It’s a very quiet area but we slept horribly.

It’s our second year in a row and it was just as wonderful as the last time! We will come back again:)

We had an amazing time. Great location, staff, décor, and rooms! The beds are AMAZING! You will not be disappointed! Looking forward to staying here in the future!

the Fess Parker is a top 10 lodging experience rarely seen. Maybe not your Safari Camp in Africa but certainly comparable to four seasons or Ritz Carlton in the US.

This was perfect. We could not have asked for anything more!

Staying there also inlcudes a real breakfast and FOUR tasting room visits....about $100 worth of extras that is not advertised. Super rooms.

Great experience. Beautiful hotel, friendly staff and very helpful. Room was spacious and beautifully decorated. Will stay there again. Quieter mid week.

Great location in a cute town. Pool and room were gorgeous. Pricey - very pricey - so met my expectations.

This boutique hotel is located in small, out of the way Los Olivos but has upscale amenities. The beautifully decorated rooms are large with fireplaces. The restaurant has an extensive menu and "small plates" which are delicious at a "small" price. Breakfast is included and it is bountiful. There are several wine tasting rooms within walking distance and the hotel offers free tasting at 3 of them including Fess Parker's Winery.

Everything about the hotel was perfect. The rooms have recently been beautifully remodeled, the staff was helpful and friendly. The pool area has also been redone, although there is no longer a jacuzzi.The breakfast (included in rate) at Petros in the hotel was excelllent. The rate also included free wine tasting at four different locations.

I sent my parents there for their annivesary. They loved it!

great retreat to wine country.

Best accommodations in Santa Barbara Wine Country. Made to feel like a guest at a private estate. Decor is comfortable and well done. Should be even better after a planned interior renovation of the rooms this spring 2011. Extremely comfortable beds!

Los Olivos is a quaint small town with wine tasting rooms lined up along the main street. If you enjoy drinking wine and talking about wine, you will love it here. The Inn was beautiful with a lovely bar and restaurant where we ate breakfast. I had a massage at the spa and it was one of my best ever. Brother's restaurant up the street had excellent hardy fare with a tavern atmosphere. We used Los Olivos as our homebase to visit the many beautiful wineries in Fox Canyon. My favorite was the Sunstone Winery. It looked like a French chateau with a pretty patio to taste wine and gardens that were overflowing with lavender. Very relaxing, peaceful experience.

Lovely little hotel in the most charming village in the winecountry - perfect for a romantic getaway

We've stayed here twice before, and I guess that says a lot for the quality of the hotel and staff! Beautiful (20 only!) rooms, newly refurbished restaurant and lobby/lounge areas really makes this place a high quality lodging. In-room fireplaces are a really nice touch too. Just walk across the street to a gourmet meal and great wine selection at the Wine Merchant Bar & Grill (from the movie "Sideways") We'll definitely be back... BKL

very friendly staff and nice clean rooms. We had a wonderful time there for our anniversary. We will definitively come back. Nice addition was the free wine tastings at Ephinay and the hotel it self.

We are extremely picky people when eating out or staying at a hotel. Trust me on this. I know wine, I have worked in all levels of resturant and hotel employment. I work hard for my money as well. This was the best service and time we ever had in the wine country. I would have to say the bed was my ladys favorite. I loved the robes. The room was perfect size for a couple get away. Great breakfast in bed included...i have never seen that in a hotel. Turn down service with great peanut brittle. The best though was the staff, They were honestly nice...not blowing wind up our [*]. We are going back asap!!! Way to go Daniel Boone
