The was the first time we had stayed at Santa Maria Inn. I was looking for a nice place to stay that was not a chain but local. I always wanted it to be nice. This was perfect. As you walk in you can sense the history. Unlike some places that show their age I found that the owners had... More

The Santa Maria Inn was a great location to stay and branch out to explore the area. The hotel is lovely and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to restaurants and also provided easy access to the freeway. We stayed in a corner King Suite and loved the big windows and open space. I would... More

This place was recommended by the wedding couple the whole group stayed, I was beyond pleased, the history alone is mind boggling, but the beds, oh the beds were so look comfortable, and believe me I am hard to please. Do not leave without enjoying the woodwork in the bar. I never go to Santa Maria, but will be staying... More

My family and I stayed at the Santa Maria Inn on May 9, 2015. Although we stayed in the newer addition, the hotel is a classic old hotel approaching 100 years old. The lobby looks to be close to original with dark wood and a revolving door. I would have preferred the older section as it has rooms said to... More

I planned a memorial lunch for my recently deceased husband at the Santa Maria Inn. I would never have been able to deal with this without the compassion and professional demeanor of everyone I met. Specific thanks go to Carmen, Keigen, Kari and Chad who were outstanding. The banquet room, food and service were great. Everyone enjoyed the lunch so... More

Hotel was very clean, staff was very courteous and friendly. Microwaves in the room would have been very useful. Mix up on the menu at dinner ended up having to wait a long time to be served. I would still return to this hotel.

The short version: We were there for 3 nights, in a suite. The room was rundown, the bathroom was nearly unusable, and the amenities were not anything to get excited about.The fridge was nice, but the coffee maker didn't work, and the soap/shampoo/lotion all smelled very strongly of orange. Bleh. The area is not great, so there are not many... More

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Santa Maria Inn while enjoying a theatre performance by PCPA (Pacific Conservatory for the Performing Arts) at the Marian Theatre. The shows are terrific. We like to stay in the old historic section of the hotel. The rooms are small but very nice accommodations; great beds and bedding. We asked... More
