I booked a few rooms here for a work retreat. Why a work retreat in Santa Maria? Pretty much it was just to have dinner at Jocko's in Nipomo. The rooms were nice and large, with a kitchenette. The location is close to the freeway, good parking, clean and comfortable. I've stayed here a few times and it's always been... More

The room we received was quite large and spacious; conveniently located on the 1st floor with the pool close by. The restaurant is just OK but there are lots of eating establishments in the area so it is probably better to eat out anyway. The staff was pleasant.

Overall, I had a positive experience with the Holiday Inn Santa Maria. 1) The front desk immediately assisted me with my reservations when I arrived at 2 AM. 2) Like every other review on here, the room is spacious 3) I forgot to pack my toiletries and Holiday Inn provided. 4) King bed was comfortable 5) TV didn't work and...

This hotel is located on the north end of town and has easy access to Hwy 101. The hotel dedicates the ground floor to customers traveling with dogs and their fee for having a dog is only $15. We've stayed here a couple times because it is close to the beaches, vineyards and, of course, Jocko's Steak House. The rooms... More

This hotel is like any other good hotel, nothing good, nothing bad. We only stayed for one night because it was a stop on our road trip to LA. Our first room smelled of smoke although this is supposedly a some-free hotel, so we had to switch. Overall this is a quite nice hotel.

Hotel is nice, and newly renovated. Hotel rooms were large, but had thin walls. We could hear the next door neighbor heat up food in their microwave. We dined in, and kids eat free! Very family friendly and would definitely stay again. We got the AAA rate. If eating out in the area, I'd recommend getting on the 101 North... More

Upon opening the door to our room, we noticed a very stale smell. The thermostat in the room wouldn't work, so to get the AC unit on, we had to call maintenance. Good thing it was a quick fix. Our room was passable and the beds reasonably comfortable, but after staying there, we felt that it was too expensive to... More

Don't be fooled by the nice lobby. The front desk staff is unfriendly. The room was large, but sparse. The supplied the room with the absolute minimum. Only 2 pillows on the huge king bed. Only 2 towels in the large bathroom. The inroom coffee only had one creamer packet and one sugar. For the ridiculously high price we paid... More
