Sideways Inn, Buellton
Newly upgraded rooms.
Beautiful updated rooms that are quiet and comfortable. The adjacent bar has been redone beautifully, but no more pool tables 😕.

2nd stay at Sideways Inn
This was our 2nd stay here. The room was clean but smelled overwhelmingly like a strong cleaning product that gave us headaches. The floor was also very sticky like they mopped quickly but didn't get all of the residue. The A/C unit didn't work overnight, so our room was hot and the air was thick. The management and front desk folks were so nice that we didn't complain. Also, another thing we noticed is the rooms were very well insulated because while the hotel looked to be close to capacity, we didn't hear any noise from other customers and we were right next to the pool. Overall, happy with our stay and we will stay here again.

A Comfortable Stay
Sideways was a good experience. It was pet friendly and the accommodations were comfortable and it was in a good location for day trips to surrounding areas. The only concern we had was that housekeeping could have cleaned the room earlier in the day. I mentioned this to the front desk when we checked out. Overall, a good experience, the pool was refreshing.

Great place to stay
We arrived and checked in. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We were amazed by the decor and styling of the entrance of the hotel. Our room was just as well done as the entrance. The landscaping around the pool was very nice and had a warm feeling to it. Two fire pits around the pool area with chairs around them to sit and relax. Breakfast in the morning was average though. Room, beds and bathroom was very well maintained. I will definitely go back.
