This was a great overnight stop on way to San Francisco. Location easy onto the freeway,yet not close enough to hear or see it. A walk up the road to a micro brewery, and a 3 mins ride to the ' hitching post' restaurant featured in the movie Sideways. A short drive to the Danish town of Solvang and all...

Nice and clean hotel. Stayed there one night on business. When I first walked into the room, it had a faint smell that someone had smoked in it............................even though it was a non-smoking room. I almost decided to go back to the front desk and ask for another room. However, it was not too strong, so I decided to open...

My husband and I had taken a pretty pricey trip to Turks and Caicos earlier this year so we were looking for a hotel in the Santa Ynez Valley where we could stay on points. The Marriott in Buellton is well located in that it is a short drive to Solvang, Santa Ynez and Los Olivos. You can also use...

The rooms were not bad once we got there. They do feel a little outdated. The main problem is the rest of the hotel. It feels more like a cheap motel than what I would expect from a Marriott. The carpet, paint, general décor were lacking. Also, the restaurant had terrible service with mediocre food. Good location for touring wineries,...

The hotel was very nice and clean and located in a very accessible area to several vineyards. Breakfast was included which was pretty good for a free offering (we are Marriott Reward Members). My only complaint was that the hotel clerk had to act as the concierge so we did not get that much tour info from them as we...

We have stayed here many times. It is a good location but really needs some updating especially for a Marriott. The staff is very helpful and give good advice about the area. The couch in our room had a broken spring. It is very clean but really needs an update.

Very Nice Marriott to stay at in this part of the Santa Ynez Valley. The King bed was fabulous as Marriott is known for! We had breakfast in our room ordered the night before! The eggs and pastries were excellent! Bicycle rentals available but we had to drive the places we went! The Vineyards and Lavender fields were all near...

I stayed at this property when I made a spur of the moment trip to Santa Ynez for the weekend. Every other place was booked. I had stayed here once before and found it very dingy for a Marriott.

Was leary when we checked in, as there was a lot of cars in parking lot. We thought it might be noisy...but was very quiet. Room was clean and updated. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast...
