I have been staying at this hotel for a consecutive number of nights per stay,for the last 4 years. I have been consistently watching it slip from a lovely historical semi- luxury hotel to a tired, old and somewhat dirty establishment. The front desk staff remains friendly and helpful but much of the rest of the staff lacks a service... More

This Inn is located in the Santa Maria Central Valley and has been a landmark since 1917. I stayed overnight with a couple of friends and did not experience the restaurant, bar or pool. The rooms were average but had very comfortable beds and it was nice and quite for a good nights sleep. ( We stayed in the Cary... More

I stayed here while passing through to Pizmo Beach. Tashia at the front desk was very personable when I checked in. They give you a choice of two styles of rooms. Old school or new tower rooms. I must say the old style rooms are a flash out of the way back past and were clean and quaint. The trip... More

Sadly this hotel is not holding up its historic charm due to the lack of up keeping. We stayed for two nights in a Grand Suite, which was supposedly renovated this year. However, the furniture was old and it could not be classified as vintage or English Country. The walls had stains and handprints. The bathrooms have very old tub... More

My wife attended a 3 day training here, so we though it would be best to stay at the hotel where the training was at. It was a good choice. The hotel has many different facets to it, and the historic part of the lobby has maintained it's old time flavor. There was also a coin operated laundry room, which... More

We were just passing thru, my wife and two teen daughters. Upon Check-in we were welcomed into this very "Old-World" style inn that you see in old movies. They have two wings, a tower with updated, newer rooms and the original wing. As luck would have it, we stayed in the "Original" wing of the hotel. When you check in,... More

We traveled to the Santa Maria Inn, with Pomona Valley Corvette Assoc. For a event given by Vapor Trails Corvettes. The Inn is Fabulous and has excellent customer service and the Staff is Wonderful. The Food and Becerage Manager , Charles Delker went out of his way to make our stay perfect. The Bar was packed with a Rock-A-Belly Band... More

Driving north on 101 from LA we started looking for a hotel, but everywhere we called was booked up from Lompoc to San Luis Obispo. We called Santa Maria Inn & they had one room left. The pluses, the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The minuses, the pictures on the net look better than the room... More

Doing a 2 weeks roundtrip traveling the westcoast (LA, Vegas, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Page etc) this has been our final stop. Driving through Pismo Beach we asked ourself why we wouldn't stay there for the "big final"... ...and then we checked in at the "Santa Maria Inn" - and at once knew why. It's the nicest and best hotel we... More
