The hotel is conveniently located off Hwy 246 in Buellton. It is close to a number of great restaurants. The hotel has a number is sitting areas ideal for socializing. Their lobby bar was a happening place. The lobby is nice and open. They do pump a fragrance in the air which was too strong for my liking. The room... More

Hotel is conveniently located adjacent to main highway and close to town center. Hotel has a pleasing and open layout throughout. Rooms are larger than average with shared balcony. Numerous restaurants, breweries and wine bars. Pea Soup Andersen within walking distance! Not much to see and do as a destination but a worthy stop over.

This is a full service Marriott and a great place to stay close to 101, but still quiet. The side away from the freeway had hill views and we saw both vineyards and horses from our room. It has a good exercise room, pool and hot tub. Only 2 miles from Solvang makes it easy to grab some pastry and... More

We chose Santa Ynez Valley Marriott because of its proximity to all the wineries we wanted to visit. From the time we checked in until we left, the hotel's personnel were professional in every manner. Our room was clean, quiet and spacious. Breakfast buffet was included in our stay and the selections offered were very good.

It's the location... In the heart of the Santa Ynez wine country. It's not new, but it's clean and well run. Staff was friendly and efficient. I'd avoid the restuarant for anything other than breakfast... Nice place to stay when exploring the area!

We requested an allergic-free room but the room assigned to was wreaking in chlorox and have to request for another room. The front office was nice enough to transfer us into another room. Bedskirt and fitted sheets were not placed properly. Skirts were folded up and fitted sheets were coming off from the corners

should have asked "where's" the pillow top mattress, may have been moved to one. my fault. for not asking. also the dinning area downstairs is very outdated and very dark. more lighting and a brighter color on walls would help.

Absolutely wonderful location, facility and especially the staff. Check in experience went smoothly and a special thank you to Jo-Ann Street, the reservation supervisor. She remembered our anniversary and arranged a very nice room for us. The room was great and has been noted by others could use a little updating. We understand that is about to happen very soon....

I'll admit some bias as I've stayed at the property roughly 20 times over the past 10 years but I love this place. While the room furnishings could use a little update overall I like the older feel of the hotel, it comes across as more "classic" than "outdated". The staff has always been friendly and helpful. Good workout facilities... More
