We always make this hotel our last stop on our way home. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. we always have a handicap room and it fits our needs, the lounge chairs are uncomfortable and they don't have cell phone charging ports in the lamps.

This is one of the more older hotels in town, but it is big and the rooms are comfy even if the rooms are on the outside. For the price I paid, it was worth it for the big breakfast every morning. The bedroom was a little older of course, but it did have a wet bar with fridge and... More

Another Best Western hotel made to look like something it isn't on TripAdvisor. Here's the reason: "Review collected in partnership with Best Western." Compare the reviews that have that with the ones that don't. Then compare reviews of this hotel on Yelp! with the ones on TripAdvisor. And use your own judgment. The Motel 6 is cleaner, cheaper, and far,... More

It is supposedly "pet friendly" but there is only a tiny strip of grass at the front of the property to walk a dog. The continental breakfast was OK and the other amenities were acceptable. There are probably nicer places to stay in Santa Maria, but this place is affordable and allows pets. blah blah blah 200 words...

We have stayed here before, and we will stay here again. We are hard to please in the quality of service department, but we are happy to say, that Big America lives up to a high standard for the casual traveler.

This is a nice hotel, well located to the mid-Coast cities and golf courses. A very friendly staff, and the suite we stayed in was set up well to permit privacy to those sleeping in the living room. A closet in the living area would be a nice addition - perhaps an armoir. I would recommend it.

We ended up staying at Santa Maria quite serendipitously on the way to LA from San Francisco, and the other major hotels were fully booked because of some local event. We found the hotel relatively clean, homely and adequate in all respects. The room was sufficiently comfortable, and equipped with the necessary toiletries and other essentials, including a hair dryer... More

Join us in our lobby every morning for a complimentary, deluxe continental breakfast, and while you are eating your breakfast help yourself to a couple of complimentary newspapers.Our Santa Maria hotel rooms have been called by many “the best hotel rooms in Santa Maria ” because of the size of the rooms and the cleanliness of the rooms.
