"Nice to get away for a bit."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
While we were a bit surprised to have a room right over the bar (which was a bit loud), things did calm down at a reasonable time and we were able to get some sleep. The room was spacious and clean. Looking forward to returning with the pandemic is under control so we could enjoy all of the amenities the hotel had to offer. An evening by one of their firepits would have been nice.

"Uncomfortable beds too noisy at night."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Sunday night stay for one night only. Not a good experience. Uncomfortable beds and noise from cars revving engines in the parking lot outside of our room around 11:00 pm. Sound proof windows is a good idea.

"Cute Hotel"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Everything here was great except for the shower. The water power is great but the layout was bad. Other than that, we loved our stay and wished we had been there for more than one night! We can't wait to come back one day!

"Sideways Inn enhances your Solvang/Santa Ynez/Buellton experience."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The new and improved Sideways has done a lot to bring its customers a nicer experience by adding some kitschy touches and keeping things clean and comfortable. It was quiet while we were there which was much appreciated!

"Accommodating staff, clean room with a nice continental breakfast."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We enjoyed out stay and would return. That said somethings could be improved: drapes that close completely because outside lights shine off of photograph glass; glass slider and screen were almost impossible to open; in the handicapped room it would be nice to have a shelf perhaps over the toilet to put things on; kleenex would be nice to have.

Testimonials:

"Everything went excellent. I'm really glad I decided to go with both your company and Sierra Suites for accommodations for my wedding. People are now wishing there were more Sierra Suites around. They were even kind enough to offer the discounted rate to those people that weren't sure they'd make to the wedding until after the cutoff date. I have already referred someone to your service for a wedding she's planning in Michigan." R.S. - Parsippany, NY
