If you are looking for a Mediocre hotel with a great location and price tag this is it. Location is seasons between Solvang and the beautiful wineries. The rooms are ok but old The breakfast buffet isn't very good. So if it's not free I would pass. The pool lounge is ok. The front desk has passes to a lot... More

This hotel was so predictably the Marriott Resort of the '70s and so consistent with the reviews, that it actually really "met our expectations". We saw pictures of the planned renovation and they looked awesome. So hold your visit if you can until the makeover is over, now you will only find a tired hotel with a pathetic pool (... More

Hotel is very clean and comfy, but is a little dated. After the renovation I would rate it as "Excellent". Everyone was very friendly....impressive! As a gold member with Marriott we were given complimentary breakfast for two. The food & service was very good. Highly recommend staying here.

Hotel is a little pricey, Staff is ok. Great location for solvang, which is very touristy but quaint. The catholic mission in solvang is worth seeing. Hotel is nice, but needs upgrading. Not many dining options, we almost fell for the hitching post...but we went to tripadvisor and found some bad reviews. Instead after three days on the road we... More

You're going to walk into this hotel and think its a little tired, but somehow it works for the area. You're in a rustic country setting so the aged décor didn't seem to bother me. Something modern just wouldn't work. The hotel is very clean and the staff was extremely friendly and it is well-located just off the 101 freeway... More

We were able to get a good rate on a last minute reservation, and we were very happy with our stay here. Our room was large, very comfortable and had all the amenities we required. Although our room faced the nearby road, the noise did not bother us at all. Our rate included a buffet breakfast at the restaurant which... More

Rooms are huge. Fridge, TV, tea/coffee, safe, all the regular things that you would expect from Marriott. Pool is a nice touch, especially when it's very hot. We hired bikes from the hotel to see the vineyard in the area, but I got flat tire very soon and we had to walk the bikes back. The hotel still charged us... More

An older Marriott as you can tell from other reviews. The hotel is in need of a refresh but the hotel staff was awesome. Check in was easy and prompt. After using the treadmills which were well maintained I returned to my room for a shower. It quit delivering water so I informed the front desk before dinner. After returning... More

This Marriott is conveniently located to Solvang, the casino and lots of local wineries. Hotel is just average and is in need of a renovation. There were no complaints regarding the room but just needs a facelift. Rooms are clean and comfortable but can be modernized a bit.
