“Nice stay”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Stayed here for business. Nice room, bed was comfortable and liked having the small refergerator in the room. Staff was friendly and helpful. Nice central location for short excursions around the area. Hotel was well maintained and clean. Reccomend this hotel if you stay in the area even though it is not in downtown Buellton as it seems more modern with better ammenities than many of the inns that are in town.

Room Tip: The rooms away from the freeway may be quieter if you want the patio door open, but it is pretty qui...

This is not the first time staying up in wine country. Stayed here just for the night but after 1 day both my wife and I did not want to leave. Thinking Marriott would be pricy I found that they were inline with all the other Solvang hotels but the difference was the cleanliness of the facilities inside and out, realizing lobby, friendliness of the staff, the FULL breakfast that came with the room, the wonderful king overlooking the beautiful green hillside that i requested, the character of a Vegas hotel in Buellton. We are sold ! When we come up again we know where we will be staying..

First Class rooms. Pleasant lobby and public spaces. Nothing exceptional or different than the usual Marriott but on the other hand no surprises or poor conditions or performances. Comfortable beds and fairly generous rooms. Very clean and modern. Unlike many large hotels, the door man was always present and very helpful.

My husband and I stayed on a Saturday night a few weeks ago while we were doing some wine tasting in Santa Barbara county. The hotel was very nice - as Marriott Platinum members we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite. The bathroom was huge and very newly renovated. The hotel breakfast was very good - I would say above average. The hotel also had delicious cookies in the lobby in the afternoon which was great. The hotel was in a great location - close to all the wineries and the main highways to get around. We would recommend this hotel and we would stay again.

My husband and I stayed over at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott this past weekend while touring the Santa Maria wine valley. The Hotel is lovely and has a unique decor and lots of charm. We had a gorgeous suite on the fourth floor, a separate living room area with dining room table and TV, couch, easy chair, two entrances to the expansive bathroom and a large bedroom with TV and king size bed. Chocolates in a little box on our pillow to welcome us and a scratch and win card tucked into our room key envelope that gave us a free glass of wine with any appetizer or entree purchased in the Hotel's restaurant.
The staff were very friendly and very helpful. We had been planning on going out for dinner but decided just to go to the Hotel restaurant for appetizers instead. There wasn't a lot of people in the Dining room but it took quite some time to get our food. I ordered a French Onion soup which really wasn't very good at all and my husband ordered four little miniature tacos, two chicken and two beef which he did enjoy. We went down for breakfast the next morning. Very, very busy since it was the President's Day weekend. Again it took awhile to be seated and for coffee to be brought to the table, but the waitress was apologetic and very nice. The breakfast for guests is superlative and there is a very nice gentleman cooking eggs and omelettes at a station in addition to a buffet of yogurt, cereals, waffle station, etc. I had an omelette with ham, cheese and green onion and my husband had two eggs over easy and they were perfect.
We would totally stay here again. A nice view of a Polo ranch out our balcony windows.
