I only stayed here for the points I get since I'm a Marriott card holder, otherwise, I won't be staying here. If you're visiting Solvang, find a hotel within the area so you don't have to find parking and drive back to this hotel. The biggest drawback is the lack of cellphone coverage in this hotel. I have AT&T and...

Definitely needs updating so think nightly rates should reflect the situation, but does not. All in all the rooms are comfy and bathrooms are more than adequate. Sign in lobby says hotel is in the process of renovating but did not see any signs of that happening. Staff is ok, pool is rather small for size of the hotel but...

I thought this hotel was over priced for what it offered. It needs a revamp. It could be lovely but looks very tired with bingo hall carpets and the room we were in seemed a little ymca. The pool is nice and there is a fire pit. Breakfast was OK. To be honest if you can get a room I...

We stayed a week at this Marriott hotel, using reward points we acquired with our timeshare and credit card. The king bed suite was very comfortable and well appointed, with a nice big bathroom and a second sink/vanity outside the bathroom proper. Breakfasts were included, and they had a very nice buffet with an excellent omelet station and really friendly...

We stayed here for a "Sideways" detour for one night as part of a longer trip. It was convenient to get to Los Olivos and Solvang from here. This hotel is about to be renovated and you can tell. However it is clean and the room was spacious. We really liked the layout of the bath area where one sink...

We were pleased with the Marriott Hotel in Buellton. The breakfast was good, the staff was friendly and the suite was as represented. We are frequent Marriot users and some properties are better than others. We thought this one was a good one. It is also convenient to the Danish Village of Solvang and the Santa Inez valley area. It...

Santa Barbara County is one of my favourite places to visit and Buellton is a great base camp for backfilling the many wondrous wine countries in the vicinity: Santa Ynez Valley, Sta Rita Hills, Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara, and Ballard Canyon. The hotel staff were okay but nothing to write home about. The hotel is in desperate need of...

Well, this would not be a bad place to stay at half the price. But paying premium Marriott prices for a hotel that hasn't seen an upgrade since the eighties seems just wrong. But I guess they are planning to do so in the next ? months, so I'd stay elsewhere until then.. Entered past bored looking bellhops, none of...

We stayed here for two nights in a king suite. The room was spacious. My only issues were that there was only one bar of soap for two sink areas. The room was clean, but there was a bit of mold growing in the grout at the corners of the tub and shampoo shelf. And, one TV remote didn't work...

Stayed here for a fire marshal's conference that I have been coming to for many years. Conveniently located just off Hwy 101. My take on the hotel: Pluses: Typical Marriott quality, comfortable bed, lots of pillows, and good toiletries. Hotel is clean and well kept up, not a new hotel but not rundown at all. The attached small conference center...
