I stay at this hotel all the time for work. I can't say enough good things about how friendly and helpful the staff is here. The breakfast staff is the best, I love Marta and think she's one of the sincerely nicest people ever. I love the new lobby and the gorgeous lobby bar. It's such a great place to...

Had an amazing stay at the newly renovated Marriott! The bar had such an amazing menu we stayed in for dinner. And kimberlee is an amazing mixologist! Highly recommend you stop in and say hi at minimum for one of the specialty drinks!

The front desk staff were excellent. We were upgraded to a suite as a platinum member. The suite is huge, with a patio (shared) off the living room. The bathroom is twice the size of our master bathroom at home and the bed room is big enough for a party. So why do I give this hotel a rating of...

So, since this was always my "go to" place when wine tasting, I decided to try it once again. From the moment I arrived, I was treated like I was someone very special. I purchased the room with my Marriott Rewards Points,(since I have so many), I asked if I could get a room upgrade prior to my arrival so,...

Against my better judgement I gave this hotel a second try. Again, total fail on the part of the staff. Rooms look nicer but staff is very rude...Especially the general manger which was shocking. I travel to this area often and wish this hotel was an enjoyable place to stay. Two words of advice....Stay away!

Last time i was at this hotel was 2 years ago, at that time, felt it was a nice property but felt a little dated. Was i surprised to find that the hotel had been completely updated, starting with the lobby which was unrecognizable from the last time we were there. There is now a comfortable restaurant/bar at one end...

Wonderful experience all around at this property. Me and my wife took a drive down to San Diego from Bay Area and decided to spend a night here to see the little Dutch village and split out drive up. Pleasantly surprised. I was recongnized right away as a Platinum member, given fruit/chocolates and a suite upgrade. It was a very...

I was there before the remodel and wrote a review on how outdated it was. I came back in December, and the rooms where beautifully done. Very Modern. Great job, and I am glad I gave them another chance. Breakfast was good. We were there for the Solvang Christmas Parade, so convenient, 10 mins and your there. Parking was challenging...

I spend a lot of time traveling in Europe and fell in love with the guest rooms there. Very clean and modern with hardwood floors. So glad to see the trend catching on here and this hotel did a wonderful job in emulating that European feel.

I have to say that I was quite impressed with the Santa Ynez Marriott. I didn't think much of the exterior photos based on their website, so I didn't have any expectations. But what I saw on the inside, coupled with their service far exceeded anything I could have imagined. Great service at check in. Great service at their valet...
