I brought my family for my NCLEX exam at Santa Maria and we booked a room here. Upon check in i noticed that the hotel is nice and clean and the personnel were courteous and attentively welcoming. We also got a nice room, wide enough for my toddler to run and play around. It has kitchen and all other amenities.... More

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

We stopped here on the way back to the Inland Empire. The room was clean, it had a balcony and it had a small kitchen area. The room was right next to the electrical room, but it din't seem to bother us. It has view of the pool area. The reason why I believe this is a good value is... More

Very nice property, excellent location (close to highway), huge rooms with a kitchen, flat screen tv, outside pool and complimentary laundry. Comfortable beds, reasonably priced. So far, we have had great experience with all Holiday Inn properties.
