It's a motel. One enters the room from the parking lot, which makes for some loud sounds. That's the reality of motels. If you can accept that, you'll be fine. We found the bed very comfortable, the room clean but outdated, and the price very reasonable. We didn't have breakfast there but it was included in the price. A good... More

Was a great hotel with great family suites. This suited our family that was travelling home to Alberta from Disney. The pool being open late was perfect for our kids to swim before going to bed. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was big. Breakfast was good and lots of room to sit. Recommend this to everyone

I stayed twice at the Best Western Plus in Santa Maria - as a stop over on my way south and back north to the Bay Area. Both times the room was really clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. I talked with the head housekeeper on the first stop-over, and she told me that the motel was in the... More

We arrived early, a couple of hours prior to normal check-in time, and the room was not ready. The front desk ladies checked on when the room might be ready, let us know and we went to have a bite of lunch. On our return, the room was ready. It was large, clean and well-maintained. Everything about our short two-night... More

It's a motel, but the bed was extremely comfortable and the shower had great water pressure (two of the best possible amenities a hotel can have, imo). Clean and pretty lobby, not so much in the room. Average, but included, breakfast.

We made reservations at the hotel as a stop on our way home from San Diego. With two kids it is tough to take really long car trips and Santa Maria is about half way for us. On the way home we stopped at the beach in Santa Monica so we were dirty and tired when we pulled into the... More

Clean, large room, excellent friendly cleaning staff. Good location, easy to find. Breakfast was mediocre but suffice. Overall, we enjoyed the stay. I would highly recommend this place to my friends and family.

I was totally impressed with our room that had a separate living area. It also had a kitchen area with a separate sink from the bathroom sink area. The bed was extremely comfortable. The wifi connection was the best I have had at a hotel in ages.

Well, one doesn't expect much in Santa Maria, CA. This particular accommodation shined. Perhaps the staff was most noticeable, especially the PM desk clerk who checked us in. The camaraderie around the pool was a delight. The room itself was well thought-out. The weakest spot was probably the breakfast, but that's usually the case.
