Everything has always been exceptional at this hotel. We always prefer Best Western but sometimes have to book for large groups and the rates are not always competive. But when we go to Santa Maria, it is for pleasure (wine tasting) and we will continue to staty at Best Western Plus there.

This Best Western Plus is a fine hotel for the $. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. My husband and son enjoyed the rather large pool. The included breakfast was adequate. With enough space for seating, clean counters and a variety of offerings. The staff was helpful and the hotel cat was super fun to see walking... More

We were very happy with this hotel. The rooms are large and clean. The bathrooms are unbelievable - They are very large, with a separate toilet area, and a large make-up table. Wi-fi works well. Everything is in good repair. The surrounding neighborhood isn't so great, but the hotel is. Breakfast was very good with enough seating and a good... More

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

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 It has popcorn ceilings, outdated decor and does not rank #1 in my...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
