This hotel is right next to the freeway - very noisy, the toilet ran all night long and the AC is located in such a way in the room that the only room cooled was the bathroom. The towel rack almost fell off the wall, the light by the bed was unplugged so we could not see when we entered... More

Room very comfortable and clean. Bathroom very small and movement in room difficult for two people. Have to small dogs and property has NO green space to walk dogs. All concrete and asphalt. Traffic on four lane highway loud and difficult to sleep without white noise in room. Breakfast room clean but only space for 10-12 people. Very cramped. Food... More

Hotel was clean and easy to get to. Unfortunately it is located extremely close to the freeway, resulting in it being very noisy. Most of the other hotels are in the same area so I would imagine it would be difficult to avoid. Breakfast was somewhat lacking for a hot breakfast.

We stayed there for one night before visiting Yosemite National Park the next day. The room was clean. The bath towels were of better quality in terms of condition and cleanliness (compared to a 4-star hotel that we stayed in San Francisco!). Bathroom may need some updating but everything was functional. Great staff service! Breakfast was standard but we enjoyed... More

Our room, bed linens and towels were clean. Breakfast was typical, fine, decent. Everything functioned except the internet kept going out and we kept asking the front desk to reset the router, which always fixed the problem, and they were always so nice. The bathroom door didn't shut, but we're a close family anyway. The faucet was very drippy and... More

Great staff, friendly service, nice bed and pillows. Nice decor. Nice fitness room. Filthy carpet, toilet was hard to flush, cooler smelled like dirty diapers, broken lights and towel rack. Not a true hot breakfast as stated on hotel fact sheet. Found a roach in the tub the last day of our stay. Poor wi-fi connection.

The Best Western is an older motel but clean and in good repair, tight parking, and we had to ask for towels and soap. Rooms are very small and prices considerably higher than quoted on their website. That said, the desk clerk did everything she could to accommodate us when we decided to stay for two nights, even switching some... More

We were travelling towards Santa Cruz and it was late when we were passing through Lompoc so we stopped at the first hotel we could find it was very basic and did for the night. Staff didn't know the area well enough to offer assistance on where to eat and what was open.

Typical Best Western. Clean, comfortable, affordable, and a pleasant staff. The landscaping was beautifully done as were all the hotels on motel drive. The whole area was very clean and well kept. I typically look to stay at Best Western when I travel because the quality and service is consistently the same.

Average-limited seating for breakfast, gym facilities inadequate, desk clerk not informed about local attractions and events. Motel did not live up to the standards of other Best Western motels that we have stayed at. AAA should rate motel **.
