Remember the context of your travel destination. My son (10 Years old) and I stayed in the Historic Wing of the Hotel. He thought is it was cool! We had a room that was one of the STAR rooms (can not remember her name). It had a little balcony, and was very comfortable. We walked around the hotel and loved... More

Considering this is Santa Maria's historical Inn. I was not impressed. The rooms in the tower were average. Our toilet did not work on Saturday morning so I feel the hotel is in need of some maintenance, The Wine and Martini Bar closed at 8:45 on a Saturday night. As I said average and not impressed.

I have been all over world in many hotels, but The Santa Maria Inn is a gem. Step back into time when courtesy and politeness where the norm. A place where you can enjoy quiet time by the pool, the spa, the wine tasting room, walk the gardens or have a massage. The food is wonderful and so is the... More

This hotel was very nice. We stayed in the historic section and found the room to be very comfortable. The bed and bedding were superior in quality. The bath towels were also great, soft and bright white.

My wife and I really enjoyed the place. check in was fast. the room was very nice. We did not use the pool but, it looked great and rose garden was great! The best part of the hotel in my opinion was the bartender downstairs at wine cellar. I believe her name is Audrey. She was great. We were there... More

We stayed at this hotel while visiting family. We had a very nice 2 queen room that was large and comfortable. The hotel staff were friendly and courteous. Pets are allowed and the hotel has ample grounds for your dog to get some exercise. Will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Santa Maria Inn is historic which gives it an A+ for character even if the charm is worn to a deep patina like well used antique furniture. It does a pretty good job of balancing upkeep with I'm sure a strained operating budget. The fact their their eating and socializing establishments aren't ever busy enough regrettably distracts from the experience;... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times, and have never been disappointed. The hotel offers rooms in the Historic portion of the Inn as well as the more modern Tower. I have stayed in both, and have enjoyed both the old and the new. While still maintaining its Historic aspects, the Inn offers all of the amenities one would... More

My husband and I had the best night sleep ever. The vintage style is awesome. The beds are the very best. Our anniversary was complete. The Oceans are close and this is a hotel I recommend to anyone. Thank you for the kind staff and how clean the room was. Parking is close too.

I live in Santa Maria but I have stayed in both sections of the hotel, the older, which contains smaller rooms but comfortable beds, and the newer section with larger rooms, similar to modern hotels anywhere. The distinctiveness is in the wood-paneled lobby and hallways. Several small shops are present along one corridor, above which the modern section is sited.... More
