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

We picked this one when we were planning our trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco via the Pacific Coast Highway. This is on the 101 before anyone points that out but we wanted to take a break and pull in a little wine tasting in the area. Santa Maria is a good place for that. Stayed 3 nights. The... More

Don't think twice about staying here. The facility is beautiful and clean and the staff is very friendly. It's very close to the 101 so it's easy to get around. While close to the freeway, it is still very quiet.

I have been to much nicer Holiday Inns! The room was adequately equipped and was large, as was the bathroom. The bed was comfy and the WiFi was free. The bar/restaurant was soulless. The margarita was quite nice. There was a good choice for breakfast and it was reasonable. Our server, John, was friendly and helpful.

Check-in is quick and easy. Personnel is efficient an polite. Room is large, fortunately because I am an IHG member, I apparently got an automatic updgare to a larger room. Not sure if this is actually true but the room is nice anyways. The only drawback so far is the lack of isolation between levels. I hear the footsteps of... More

We came bc my husband was riding in the rodeo. It's super CLEAN and hotel staff is all very friendly. We originally booked with 1 king but when checking in, they offered us 2 queens which worked better for us since we brought our 4yr old. When booking, We payed extra for the breakfast voucher which we thought was for... More

My family and I stayed over the Memorial Day weekend. The hotel was conveniently located one exit down from a huge shopping center. It was easy to find and right off the freeway. Hotel was clean, front desk agents were very friendly and the overall feel of the hotel was pleasant. The rate was a bit high for a holiday... More

Another one off our bucket list....For more than 15 years we waited to make this trip finally come true. The countryside is absolutely breath taking, especially on a motor cycle, and sharing this with family and friends AMAZING!
