I would like to start by saying that their "ENTIRE" staff was very friendly and made us feel important. This shows that whoever the manager is, got his or her point across that customers come first. From the minute we checked in to the minute we checked out, all personal was on board to make our weekend getaway memorable. You...

Excellent hotel. Modern rooms that are high-tech but the thing that impressed was the helpful friendly staff which included housekeeping, groundskeeper, front desk and restaurant workers. Each person made us feel we were among family. Outstanding.

I spent Valentine's weekend at this Marriott with my husband and 4 kids and the staff couldn't have been better. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, even with unusual requests like going swimming and in the hottub bright and early in the morning. Everyone was always ready with a smile, providing us with towels, pillows, blankets, milk, and any other...

Our family of 6 recently visited the newly remodeled Santa Ynez Marriott and could not have been more impressed with the level of service, the accommodations, and the overall great experience that we had. The staff were extremely welcoming upon our arrival and were patient and helpful even after helping to unload 4 children and all of our luggage. Our...

I've visited this Marriott for decades and this is the best it has ever looked. The lobby is now modern and worthy of spending time in with a nice looking bar and wood burning pizza oven lit all afternoon and evening. The rooms have been nicely updated as well with a small corner couch, good-sized flat screen and a small...

Modern, clean, large comfortable room and bed; quiet; convenient to Solvang without all the hyper touristy kitsch. We were recognized as elite immediately by the staff. There is no club but the elite complementary buffet was very good, including an omelet station. Will definitely be my choice if back in the area

We chose Marriott being a rewards member. The facility has a nice lobby bar area and spacious reception. The room was large and nicely decorated but comparatively the bathroom was small with only one sink and the toilet is squeezed right there next to it. My biggest complaint was the staff at the coffee bar. After returning from dinner our...

I stay here each time I'm in town for business. The renovation has taken the hotel from a hunting lodge theme to a modern welcoming hotel. Probably a nod to the winery scene establishing itself here. There's even massages available by appointment. The hotel lobby is bright and welcoming. Check in was a breeze. I used the mobile check in...

I stay at this hotel all the time for work. I can't say enough good things about how friendly and helpful the staff is here.
