Santa Barbara County is one of my favourite places to visit and Buellton is a great base camp for backfilling the many wondrous wine countries in the vicinity: Santa Ynez Valley, Sta Rita Hills, Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara, and Ballard Canyon. The hotel staff were okay but nothing to write home about. The hotel is in desperate need of...

Well, this would not be a bad place to stay at half the price. But paying premium Marriott prices for a hotel that hasn't seen an upgrade since the eighties seems just wrong. But I guess they are planning to do so in the next ? months, so I'd stay elsewhere until then.. Entered past bored looking bellhops, none of...

We stayed here for two nights in a king suite. The room was spacious. My only issues were that there was only one bar of soap for two sink areas. The room was clean, but there was a bit of mold growing in the grout at the corners of the tub and shampoo shelf. And, one TV remote didn't work...

Stayed here for a fire marshal's conference that I have been coming to for many years. Conveniently located just off Hwy 101. My take on the hotel: Pluses: Typical Marriott quality, comfortable bed, lots of pillows, and good toiletries. Hotel is clean and well kept up, not a new hotel but not rundown at all. The attached small conference center...

We like the beaches in Northern Santa Barbara but don't want to spend $600 night. 15 minutes away is Buellton and the Marriott, wineries and one great restaurant called, Trattoria Grappolo. the hotel stay is really for families with lots of young kids.

In Buellton for a large conference, we were impressed that the Marriott put on extra staff to deal with a diverse and demanding group of winos, I mean, wine bloggers. We had a good-sized room, with decent amenities. It was quiet, clean and comfortable. The WiFi was good and readily available. The conference food was surprisingly good, especially the closing...

We stayed for a week as the hotel is ideally situated to visit the local attractions. The check in process was unremarkable unlike the previous review. The room was a normal shape, although I would agree about being able to hear people in the room next door on one occasion. The Saturday night was noisey as a wedding reception was...

Four nights for a conference was three too many. Long wait for check-in (line across the lobby past two sets of doors). Room a strange shape, with paper thin walls that allow you to hear everything outside, in the halls, and the rooms on either side.
