I've stayed at the Santa Maria Inn a couple of times prior to this last visit and found both the room and the service not as together as in the past. I had a beautiful single room last year in he historic part of the Inn, upstairs, and was looking forward to a similar experience this year when traveling south... More

We loved our short stay at this very unique hotel that combines historical with new. Fun to look at all of the antique items in the inn. The personnel are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms in the newer section are roomy with antiquey looking furniture and very comfy beds. Be sure to walk around and get a look at... More

While the hotel is older, it does have some nice features like spacious rooms, comfy beds, nice pool/Jacuzzi area, coffee makers, mini-fridge, restaurant and convenient location to restaurants, shopping and the highway. The wine bar downstairs is small and quaint. We had fun playing checkers and talking to the bartender and other guests, it was still open at 9:00 pm... More

Staying at Santa Maria Inn when we come to Santa Maria and Solvang for the theater is a regular choice. The staff could not be more helpful, the accommodations are excellent. One of the hidden benefits is the "theater package" which provides usually better seats at the Solvang Festival Theater for PCPA productions than one can get through the PCPA... More

Just completed a wonderful nights stay at the Santa Maria Inn. Having arrived at 9pm, we were efficiently processed and headed to our rooms within 5 minutes. The tower room were great; spacious, clean and full of character. The beds afforded a good nights rest. Breakfast in the morning was acceptable, with 2 boys ordering pancakes, and the rest having...

We are staying in the old historic portio. The room is on the small side but updated and comfortable. Our room shares a outdoor patio with three other rooms so it would be a great group get together site. The hotel has a good restaurant and coffee bar as well as a historic old pub. If you like a more... More

.Often overlooked since it is not part of large chain. Great location in center of town, I enjoy the "old" portion of hotel which is restored and quirky. All rooms are named after movie stars (Shirley Temple, Charlie Chaplin, etc ) Staff wonderful and accommodating. Jonelle in the 801 Coffee Bar is a delight first thing in morning. Clean and... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Santa Maria Inn several times now. This time was a last minute "just get out of the house" stay. We are locals, but we have stayed at the Inn at least 6 times so far. This time we stayed in the towers section. Our room was perfect. We lucked out and got... More

It was great! It was like stepping back in time when you walk through the hotel. Loved it. I would highly recommend staying there. If you want to be in the center of Santa Maria, this is the place. We were helping our son move in to town and it was relatively close. Lots of stores and things to do... More

The room was clean, nice, and comfortable (love the citrus smelling soap/shampoo), and the lobby definitely has character. But what impressed us the most was the smiley faces of the entire staff, including a male employee who brought some items up to our room. We felt very welcome, and will definitely return if in the area in the future.
