Verified Reviews of Santa Ynez Valley Marriott

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Need help cleaning."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I think housekeeping might need help learning some tips on cleaning.. It's disgusting when you find other people's hair.

"Rooms were way to expensive for what you got."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Room looked like a cheap motel room.

"Perfect base for wine tasting and Solvang visits."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Stayed for two nights. Loved everything. I was a bit bothered by the layer of dust in my room and no towels but I totally understand why it would be this way given the toll that Covid has had on travel. Will go again and would stay here again.

08-Apr-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Mon Apr 05 to Wed Apr 07 2021 at a $134.00 average nightly rate.
"Disappointing"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The plastic laminate in my room was warped in several places. Besides being slightly hazardous for anyone who isn’t sure footed, it was very cheap feeling not up to the standards of a full blown Marriott. The shower control is located in such a way that one gets soaked turning it on. There is a space by the shower where shelves could be built to hold towels rather than placing them on the counter. Room was large and the mattress was average.

"Great Hotel"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
It was a great hotel, the service was great the rooms are very nice and clean. Definitely Better than many around that area.

"The entire hotel was infused with toxic chemicals that they see as their 'branding'."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
On my first step into the lobby we were blasted with toxic chemicals that they were using to 'Brand' their experience. Our room was close to the lobby and there was no escape from the chemicals. I complained and they seemed to shot the lobby door, but that night I coughed, had a headache and was basically miserable. I complained to the desk and they said it was part of their 'branding' and that all of their hotels now have this. In 2019 chemical free workspaces, schools, libraries, all kind of places. .are the norm. This trend is dangerous, unhealthy and has to stop. I won't be stepping foot in a Marriot until they change this policy.

"Clean, welcoming and free orange juice."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My favorite part about the stay was the heated pool and the orange juice and coffee available at all times.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
