We had a corporate event at the Santa Ynez Marriott in Buellton. The central location of this hotel makes it an ideal jumping off point for traveling anywhere in the region. The planning for our event was very smooth and everyone checked into their rooms without any issues. Everyone had a great time. The rooms are lovely and even though...

The wife and I had a overnighter here on a getaway weekend up the central coast. After a nice day of golf at Avila Beach, we drove down 101 to rest here before heading home to Long Beach. Have to say this place surprised us with all it had to offer.....nice pool/jaquzi, there was a game room with pool tables...

If you need to take a break for a few days you may want to consider this hotel. Excellent quality and value. The buffet breakfast was fantastic, I recommend the omelets but leave room for the fruit bar and pancakes............ need I say more. The Hotel has a rack of bikes which you can rent for an hour, half day...

My husband and I are locals and we stayed here at the Marriott to partake in their New Years Eve package (which we've stayed here before for several NYE events in the past). What peace of mind we have being able to not worry about drinking & driving and enjoy ringing in the New Year with friends and then just...

I didn't really have a conception of just how far Buellton was from Santa Barbara, and when I found this hotel with great reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to go for it. Because I waited 'til the last minute, we had to spring for a suite (w/2 queen beds) for me, my brother, & our elderly parents. Although SB was...

Stayed a few days to go wine tasting in the area. My dad is older so I asked to stay on the 1st floor, which we did. Pretty central to everything. The layout was a little confusing. Went to eat in their restaurant, was too lazy to go out. A bit over priced for what we got. Went to their...

A wonderful stay in a luxury property; entering each room you step under an arch that really adds character. Great made-to-order omelets; very friendly staff. Only complaint: front-facing rooms face freeway so opening your balcony sliding door results in noise and smoking smell if others are lighting up in the front courtyard. But no smoking in the rooms, patios or...

The Santa Ynez Valley Marriott is ideally located for your stay in Santa Barbara Wine Country at the intersection of the 101 and State Highway 246.
