We love staying in the old section of this hotel located in the Civic Center of Santa Maria. The rooms have been freshly renovated and offer all the modern conveniences without ruining the historic feeling. We had a wonderful stay in a room with a garden view.

Valentine's weekend. Wine cellar closed at 9PM. Our party of 6 got in at 8:45 & were rushed out. We ordered a bottle of wine. Bartender did not have 6 wine glasses. We all had the same type room in the Executive tower. One room charged $149 (no brunch). Two rooms charged $119 (with brunch for ONE person, per room).... More

This is a historic Inn, full of charm and character, with lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Our room in the old section was huge, very comfortable and clean. The restaurants are nice with good food. This Inn was (and is) a favourite of the Hollywood crowd and it was fun to wander the halls looking for the names... More

This is just a fun hotel! Yes, it's old but that's what makes it cool! Rooms have been redone but you don't lose the charm of the past. Our room is clean and comfortable and the staff has been extra friendly. Centrally located to all sorts of places to see and restaurants to eat at. Grounds are wonderful and there... More

Definitely THE place to stay in Santa Maria. Awesome lobby and grounds out back. We've stayed here 4 or 5 times in the last year and the staff has been first rate every time. The Santa Maria Inn is also pet friendly, and our dog, Albert, thinks it's the best hotel ever!

We have been staying at the Inn every weekend for 3+ months due to business. It has been a great place for us, we love the Martini and Wine Bar, we normally stay in the tower and the rooms are great. We will miss it when this is over!
