Very good. Wonderful place to stay specially in the valley.

Nice pool and good price for a busy weekend, but had no towels in room, had to call 3 times before they were finally delivered to room (was told housekeeping was very backed up), found dirty men’s underwear In our room, very clear their cleaning standards were not being followed by the amount of dust in room, pipes shook when using the shower- do not recommend, won’t stay again.

Front desk staff was awesome. Great attitude. Allowed us to check in early. Will definitely stay again and recommend.

It’s not fancy but it is a nice hotel with friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay.

The suite was beautiful. The Santa Ynez area is already one of my fsvorite places, my stay here made me enjoy it even more. I love the livelyness of the Lobby and Bar, and the out door lounge a d pool were near perfect. Some additional shading would be nice around the pool would be my only critique.

We've stayed at this hotel several times over the years because of its location re. proximity to Los Olivos. The rooms were redecorated and they are not comfortable or attractive. Floors in rooms have plastic wood coverings, buckled in several areas. Unattractive, cheap & noisy!! The overall new decor is also dark, cold and unwelcoming... Tne obvious intent to be modern and hip was missed by a huge mark. The lobby bar is a nice upgrade... Staff was all friendly, pleasant and effecient. The price and overall level of accommodations do math match up at this hotel - very poor value.

The property and the location are perfect! The staff is weondeful. Super bummed they didn’t mention that the pool is closed until at least the end of May. The cleanliness is AWFUL. We talked to the front desk and they gave us complimentary breakfast offered to reduce our $300+ room rate. I’m definitely hoping it’s reduced by $200 minimum; I am beyond disappointed by the legit GROSSNESS of this room.

Definitely, I will stay there whenever I go to Solvang. New, Clean and Spacious! not like old hotels in downtown Solvang. The front desk staff (a tall big guy) was really nice and helpful. He gave us a corner room on the 2nd floor which had excess to separate staircase to the parking lot. It was very private, quiet and overall excellent!!. I will stay in that room next time again. Thank you!

We've stayed here a number of times-very nice hotel, friendly staff. comfortable roll away bed for our daughter.

Great hotel if you are looking to visit several vineyards in the area. Literally a 5 min car ride to Solvang and 10-15mins to Los Olivos

Staff was very helpful DNS courteous. We had a great time and would definitely go back.

When we arrived the entire lobby was a shambles and loud with lifts because they were decorating. we were told it would probably be an hour before our room was ready. Mind you check in time is not until 4pm so to have to wait around even later is a bit disappointing. The desk clerk was not apologetic, didn't offer us anything in return for this inconvenience. When we did get the "suite" it was average if not a little dingy looking. The cable /direct tv kept going in and out as well. For the price you would expect a little better but for a clean place with comfortable beds to lay your head for one night it was nice.

Really good,very clean,near solvang. We came here from LA and fing it's very clean and the environment is really good. U can even see the star on the balcony. And it is also very safe.

We needed accommodations close the the start and finish of a bicycle ride. Lo and behold the hotel WAS the start and finish of the ride. Most noteworthy was the wonderful hotel staff. Each member, without exception, was warm, friendly and always accommodating. Requests were fulfilled with a smile and almost instantaneously. The hotel made an incredible weekend getaway just perfect.

If you're looking for a nice, comfortable bed for a weekend getaway in Santa Ynez/Solvang area this is a great option. We didn't spend much time in the room, but the bed was very comfortable and the room felt clean. The lobby is really nice with a full service Starbucks. The only odd thing is that somehow our "privacy please" door hang sign kept disappearing in the middle of the night leading to some early rude awakenings by housekeeping. Other than that, completely nice room with a nice outdoor patio as well!

Convenient because of the Tesla Superchargers located in the parking lot.

This Marriott has everything for an enjoyable stay in Santa Ynez wine country. Great location for visiting the area's wineries, restaurants, towns, and shops. Many amenities here including a restaurant and bar. Enjoyed sitting outside by the fire pit sipping a glass of wine. Thumbs up for this Marriott.

This hotel is in a bad need of remodeling. I felt like I was living back in 80s again

So pleased with our recent trip. Their staff was so friendly, and the room was spotless. We can hardly wait to return to this great hotel. Oh, and great breakfast too!

We apologize for your less than exemplary stay. We strive to provide a seamless and relaxing experience. We are aware of the floor situation and are working with Marriott to remedy this issue. We're sorry you do not like the new décor. We believe with the new carpet (hopefully by Fall 2019) it will soften the décor and address any noise issue. We appreciate your feedback and will use it to provide better service in the immediate future.
