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.

We have stayed at this hotel a couple times before. We always enjoy the friendly service, great hotel, and comfortable room. We stayed in a suite this time, and enjoyed our room space so much more. The only problem we had, was an incident that happen in the early morning hours in our room. There was a leak in our... More

Very under-rated and under valued hotel in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley near Solvang and the Central California Wine Country. It is conveniently located adjacent to US 101 and CA 246, which are the main arteries into the local area. It is hotel that feels like a resort. Starbucks is located in the main lobby area. The food... More

I’m a Marriott Gold member and this hotel does not live up to Marriott standards. Upon arriving, we parked near the front and struggled to get our bags out of the car, under the watchful eye of the bell man, who just stood at the front door watching. Upon reaching the front door he asked if we needed any help,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and had a pleasant enough stay. Our room (a standard king sized bed) met all expectations you'd find in a Marriott in terms of size and comfort. The staff we met (check-in/out, busboy, concierge) were all pleasant, helpful and attentive. The location of the hotel is great. It is located right... More

This hotel is in a great location if you like wine tasting. It is only 40 minutes from downtown SB. The rooms are dated, nothing really special. I was a little disappointed in my stay during this busy weekend. I felt the hotel was off its game. Like a toilet that kept running, coffee packs never refilled. And worst of... More

This place is awful- Marriott needs to shut it down. I chose this hotel because I'm a loyal Marriott member always try to stay with Marriott. The hotel rooms are severely outdated, mattress is old and lumpy, rooms are filthy. The carpet is dark old and dingy, couch had food stains on it, there was a one inch thick dust... More

Just finished an involuntary 2700 mile tour of the Great Basin and California. Every day a different hotel, chosen for comfort, cost and friendliness to pets. This Marriott is the winner. The only hotel where you might actually stay on. Simple, friendly service and a good basic room service menu. The dog liked it, too. It took six hours to... More
