Our daughter is attending PCPA conservatory in Santa Maria so we will be making many trips to the area. Our first trip we stayed at a hotel and it was OK, but wanted to try out some of the other chains to find our favorite. Well, after out stay at the Best Western, we have stopped our search.

If you want a friendly atmosphere in great rennovated rooms, this is the place for you. Located right on scenic Highway 101, it is easy to access and is a short drive to the great tourist destinations of Solvang and San Luis Obispo. The manager's recommendation of the restaurant located next door was a great suggestion. We had a delicious... More

We love the room amenities, lots of mirrors and bathroom counters. Nice cont. breakfast. Close to everything in Santa Maria. Short drive to the beach. Clean rooms. You'll love the stay, not fancy but very comfy.

I picked this hotel based on the trip advisor reviews...should not have! This is not a #1 hotel for trip advisor. It needs to be updated from the 1970 decor and it stinks to high heaven like old musty hotels. I am so disappointed in travelers reviews. It has popcorn ceilings, outdated decor and does not rank #1 in my... More

Hotel was priced decent, Staff went out of their way to take care of our needs. Bed was very comphy. WiFi great, and the bathroom was awesome. If only it over looked the Beach it would have be perfect.

We have stayed here before because it was clean and reasonably priced; now prices have gone up, but quality has dropped. Too many minor problems with the room to list, we didn't bring them to managements attention until check-out. They offered to send housekeeping, but the basic lack of maintenance has obviously been ongoing for some time.

This property was a great value for the money. Rooms were new, updated, clean and comfortable. Very spacious bath/dressing room with separate toilet room and spacious closet. The staff was very pleasant and helpful from start to finish. Good breakfast fare. Highly recommended if you are in the Santa Maria area.

This hotel was very clean, and beautiful. The staff is great, the pool area was fantastic. All in all I stayed for more than a few nights. Excellent service from everyone. They really made you feel at home. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

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.
