Let me start off by saying that the Marriott Santa Ynez Valley proved to be way more than I was expecting. Situated in the quiet town of Buelton, CA which is best known for being the off-ramp to Danish inspired town Solvang, Firestone Brewery, and Pea Soup Andersens, what I thought was going to be a lower end Marriott, turned...

Comfy room, good shower head water pressure. Nice toiletries with refreshing scent. Comfortable room with everything you would expect. The bed and bed skirt are quite worn. Could use replacement, but I still slept comfortable. Had two double beds, hubby said his was quite lumpy. Friendly and helpful valet attendant. The staff brought chocolates in the evening. She also brought...

I stayed at this property for a short one night stay as I had liked my previous stay in September.. But was disappointed as the service levels were not up to Marriott's reputation. The heater in the room was so noisy that we couldn't sleep undisturbed as the heater would start loud every 15-20 min, waking us up. Also, we...

We had a good stay at this location and were surprised to find a full service Marriott in a largely rural area. We had one of the newly renovated rooms. It looked different than your average hotel room. There was a nook seating area with a table. We were only there for one night, so didn't really use this space,...

What a difference a year makes. I stayed here exactly a year ago and it was a old and tired property. Today, the hotel has beautiful and comfortable guest rooms. Perhaps, the only missing element is a lounge for the Marriott elite members. Very nicely done on the improvement.

Upon my arrival, I was greeted by AYS Associate Kirk who upgraded me to a suite and continued to rave about how beautiful the room was. This "beautiful" room was left ajar and had another family checked into it which Front Desk was shocked to hear. I was then put into a smaller/standard room with workers renovating rooms nearby. What...

Did not expect much, but pleasantly surprised the rooms were recently renovated tastefully. We had the breakfast buffet which is good and includes omelet station. This hotel is already one of the few luxurious hotel in the area. Staff were very friendly and helpful.I will come back and stay here again.

We stay here often and we were very pleased when we stayed there last month. They were still in the process of remodeling the hotel, but the room we stayed in was nicely updated with an industrial modern style. We loved that the rooms no longer have carpets. They have tile in the bathrooms and wood laminate in the rest...

I've stayed there for two nights with my girlfriend. The room was cool, typical marriott, service was poor. We ordered two cocktails and they couldn't serve them in 20 minutes to the pool. Also lobby lounge food& service was not at Marriott standards. I think they were under some kind of renovation as well. Location is cool and peaceful. Close...
