Nice big room with kitchenette and balcony. Pleasant welcome with a refreshing cup of lemon and lime water. We had a room with two double beds with four pillows each, something we hardly ever come across. All usual extras are included in the room. The hotel also has a laundrette, swimming pool and gym. We didn't have breakfast here, but... More

I booked this hotel for a weekend get away. Pros - I was given a handicap accessible room- so I don't know whether the other rooms are the same. But this room was huge- I could almost fit another King bed in there. - The rooms had a balcony, which you could sit at t to enjoy the morning Pacific... More

Used this hotel as a stopover for our Hwy 1 roadtrip. Paid with IHG points. Got an oversized room, the biggest I've ever slept in, with a nice furnished kitchen. Shower had good waterflow and an endless supply of hot water. Everything we needed for a stop on our long journey. Do notice that there is absolutely nothing worth doing... More

We picked this hotel because a) it was pet friendly, b) it seemed like a convenient place to stop for the night for our drive from LA to SF with our puppy. We had booked a pet friendly room, but were told upon arrival that those were already allotted to others. We made the reservation online for our "pet friendly... More

We stayed at this hotel several times. It is our go-to hotel when taking a road trip on CA-1 between SF and LA. Santa Maria is perfectly located as the stopover place and this hotel is also a convenient stop. This holiday inn seems to be in an industrial park just off the highway. It has a huge parking lot...

I only booked a room at this hotel as a last resort as all of the other hotels in the area were sold out for some reason. Otherwise I would have booked the Fairfield Inn or Candlewood nearby. I was not expecting much & that's what I got. The service was poor, from the female at the front desk who... More

We stayed here to undertake the drive up Highway 1 to Carmel. The Hotel although now dated was very clean. The room was large and as expected air conditioned. The staff were very helpful and friendly. It was generally as to be expected with a Holiday Inn. Good value and comfortable.

In Santa Maria for a 1 day business trip and the Holiday Inn was conveniently close to the 101 Freeway, but thankfully not next to it. The rooms were updated with new furnishings and were clean and fresh. The front desk was accomodating in changing my room because the first room was adjacent to a guest with a barking dog,... More

The room I stayed in was spacious; plenty of room for gear plus a balcony. The room was 90% updated, but needs just a little extra polish (e.g., bathtub a lil worn out, microwave ca. 1977). -1 star for frumpiness. -1 star for indifferent service at check-in. I don't want fawning, but I kind of felt like I was interrupting... More

coming on a holiday trip from Solvang not knowing about the industrial & shopping town of Santa Maria we strayed off the coast line into Santa Maria and were pleasantly surprised about the reasonable rates and excellent comfort of this hotel. Very friendly check-in, excellent spacious & clean room, clean bath. Had some nice Happy Hour drinks and snacks. The... More
