Wasn't sure what to expect after reading some poor reviews on here, however the hotel was lovely. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and we had breakfast included which was also good with lots of choice. We stayed here for one night and must say it was better than expected.

The Santa Ynez Valley Mariott is the best hotel in Buellton, and is one of the top three in the entire Santa Ynez Valley. It is in close proximity to anything you'd need, The hotel is very clean and the staff is very professional (I was impressed that they always hold the door open for you!). There are several restaurants... More

Our children and friends were camping at Flying Flags so we drove up and stayed at the Marriott which is so close to many other attractions. Wineries galore, Barrelworks for lunch, wandering thru the Danish town of Solvang, and the Hitching Post for dinner! The hotel is the perfect location for all of these. They had many of their decorations... More

A little dated but nice. We were there over Thanksgiving and they were in a full on Christmas decorating mode. They have a restaurant, coffee counter, hair salon,pool, tennis courts and more on site so no need to look around for these things after a long day. Also, there is a Restaurant & Brewery a few blocks away. For Buellton... More

We always enjoy our Marriott stays, but this one gave us a free upgrade into a suite. A lovely bedroom, living room, bar... The bed was very comfy. The "continental" breakfast included an omelet bar, which was a brilliant start to our day in wine country.

I stayed 5 weeks at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott. I would rate it as an average aged hotel (room 224 needs some major remodeling). I was given an upgrade 1 time even though I'm a Platinum Marriott Rewards member. My last week there I requested many wake up calls which were largely ignored by hotel staff. I wrote to... More

Recently stayed here for two nights. It is perhaps the worst Marriott I have ever stayed in. It is old and dingy and desperately needs to be updated; for example, the furniture in the rooms, except for the bed, is all very old, couch was tattered and frayed, carpet was stained, doors and trim were beat up. I am a... More

After reading reviews I was a little worried about what to expect but our room was clean, the staff happy and helpful. Yes it's an older motel but I think it's part of it's charm, a walk to shops, and the dutch town Solvang and Chumash Casino are only a short drive away. Beautiful and relaxing escape from the city.... More

Location and facilities are very nice. You are next to the Freeway, so choose a room above floor entrance side. Pool area is very noisy. Rooms are nice. Ask for a non-dog room if you are not traveling with a pet. Across the room someone left a dog alone roaming their hotel room and barking non-stop. Hotel had them come... More

The Santa Ynez Valley Marriott is located in the heart of wine country in the Santa Ynez Valley. It's spacious rooms, reasonable rates and valuable information from the concierge on local wineries, make it a great headquarters for tasting throughout this wonderful wine region.
