We were on our way from San Francisco to LA and decided with short notice to stay in Santa Maria. Very friendly and professional staff, great very clean room, a vast range of TV channels and most of them HD and the breakfast area (breakfast complimentary and a good variety also of healthy choices) was well organized, cleaned and replenished...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The desk clerk was helpful and very nice. The room was clean and comfortable. It included a microwave, fridge and coffee pot and a really comfortable bed. It's only a short drive to some of the local winerys. Our breakfast was good, with the standard Best Western offerings of waffles, bagles, cereal,... More

This is not a fancy hotel, however, the lobby is excellent, the rooms are huge, and the cost can and usually is, under $100. I love the FREE breakfast buffet. One of the best, I feel, out of other Best Westerns -- waffles, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, 4 different kinds of cold cereals, egg burritos, bisquits/gravy, juice, coffee, fruit, bagels,... More

If you are in Santa Maria and you need a place to stay, consider this Best Western Hotel. Excellent service provided by hotel staff. Room was clean and spacious with refrigerator and micro wave. We really enjoyed our stay there. The bed was great.

We went to California to watch a satellite launch from Vandenberg AFB. Since Santa Maria is very close to the base we decided to stay there. The Best Western Plus Big America is right on the main route to the base it was an easy choice since we always try to stay at Best Western. The accommodations were great. The... More

Too many negatives to give this place a good review. Place has that old style motel set up with outside entry doors so if you are on the first floor, you hear everything that is going on in the parking lot in your room. Walls are thin so we heard when folks in the rooms around us were using the... More

The staff here are excellent. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good and very filling. This place is a must stay when visiting Santa Maria. The room had all the amenities that we needed and we were very satisfied that the room was large and we were not cramped into a small room.

I was so happy to be right on the ocean. When I booked the room I was unaware it was on the ocean. I was also surprised at the wood burning stove in the room. The bed was very comfortable. I have all ready recommended it to my friends and co workers.

Dear Mary D, Thanks for taking the time to write your review, but I think there might be some confusion. You wrote a review for a different hotel. We are not close enough to the ocean to have ocean view rooms. We also do not have a wood burning stove in any of our rooms. BEST WESTERN PLUS Big America... More

We came to Santa Maria to attend a PCPA performance of Hamlet for Valentines day weekend, so we stayed at this hotel because it was close to our daughter (she is a student at the school). The rooms are spacious and include a mini fridge, sink, and microwave. I especially like the added vanity seating area in the bathroom near... More

Dear Kathleen W, Thank you for your review. We first would like to apologize about our breakfast food being cold as well as the meeting that was happening right next to you.
