Our room was spacious, clean, and quiet! The bed was nice and comfortable, and the shower was really strong and warm! Just what we needed! Would stay again! Ate at Shaw's across the street- amazing steak and great service!!

Arrived a little later than expected, so dined in the Restaurant in the Hotel. Really lovely food and service - just what you'd expect from a really nice restaurant. The room was spotless and had all the amenities we needed as a family, including a pool and fitness room which we didn't have time to use. The beds were really... More

We stayed here as a stopping point between L.A. and San Francisco. The room was decent, but I wouldn't call it 4 stars. I would stay here again. Unfortunately during our stay there was a group of teens also staying. Not the hotels fault, just bad timing.

What a delightful find! We needed a hotel for just one night in Santa Maria and happened upon the Historic Santa Maria Inn. The hotel is charming! The room was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. I loved the window seat!! The small refrigerator and coffee maker in room were appreciated. No additional charge for in-room internet access or... More

We stayed one night. When we arrived, we entered through the rear of the hotel which was poorly lit. Not welcoming. The garbage bin was there and left a foul odor throughout the parking lot. The hotel decor is in serious need of updating. It could be done in a way which preserves the historic feel and character. However, the... More

Lobby has 1900 century warm feel to itand the staff are very friendly and helpful. The inn offers fine dining (did not eat here) a couple bars to relax over laughter... More

I've stayed at the Historic Santa Maria Inn before, and always find it to be charming, clean, warm, inviting and with friendly and helpful staff. Recently, they've upgraded their sixth floor suites. I was lucky enough to arrive a little early as the work crews were literally putting the finishing touches on several sixth floor rooms allowing me a unique... More

The Santa Maria Inn was a delightful place to stay from an historic view point. I loved seeing a jewel of the early 1900's being revived and restored. I think this hotel is every bit as important historically speaking as Hurst Castle. There is a great deal of potential in this hotel, I hope the owners and management embrace and... More

Not a whole lot going on in Santa Maria California but this place was great. We stayed in the newer part which was nice and roomy and clean and comfortable. Checked out the older part of the hotel which was nice and historic. The restaurant and bar were very comfortable and made our stay very convenient and enjoyable.
