This hotel is old, and it shows. The sliding glass doors out to the pool are single paned with the kind of locks you'd find in a 1960's tract house. We were in a "suite", with a king bed, a sofabed, and a rollaway, since we need 3 beds. The room was fairly cramped. The one good thing was there... More

Older hotel with average-size rooms. Complimentary hot breakfast and newspapers. Quieter rooms are in the back of the property. Our original room had problems (broken sliding door to parking area). We were required to change rooms. OK hotel for the price.

This was the first hotel we found when we arrived in Santa Maria. It was dark when we arrived & we just wanted to find a place for overnight. We got the last room available which was a suite, a bit more money than we had wanted to spend for a Quality Inn room. However, it was very clean and... More

I made a reservation for a king size room and inadvertently made it smoking. I made this reservation for my daughter and her husband for their anniversary and my daughter is very allergic to smoke. I contacted the manager Dawn Rust about the mistake and she was able to change the room to a non-smoking but also on the ground... More

I travel often to Santa Maria for work and this hotel is the spot I prefer to stay at. Customer service is great. Friendly staff. Check in is quick and easy. The hallways to the rooms are secured and you need to have a room key to get it. I really like that. The rooms are very spacious and clean.... More

Across from Marian Hospital, this hotel is well-located and fairly quiet, despite being near the 101 Freeway. We almost canceled this trip because most of the places we called were "gouging" (taking advantage of high season near the coast. Our rate here was lower than that quoted at the Motel 6, for crying out loud!!! There is a nice restaurant... More

Clean hotel overall. Rooms just on the verge of needing to be updated, but are clean. Very small area for breakfast. Average breakfast. Noisy early a.m. with truck noise from street, but otherwise, quiet. Friendly staff.

Was very impressed with this place. Very clean, comfortable and friendly staff. Had an issue with a leaking sink in the bathroom and response was great. Breakfast basic but sufficient to get you on the road. Placed right next to 101 in a quiet, safe area o Santa Maria and easy to get to Main St etc. No noise from... More
