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. The room sound proofing is none. We kept waking through the night thinking people were in our...

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...

Having said that , the rooms were clean , if shabby . The staff is very pleasant . The breakfast was a real plus . The Marriott brand is...

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. Carpet is badly laid (tacks coming up at the doors, don't walk in bare...

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 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 They do feel a little outdated.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,...
