After reading the not so positive reviews, it doesn't sound like the place that we stayed. We had a lovely room (only the shower plug hole looked like it needed replacing) and we had a great night's sleep. We only stayed one night, but it served us well. I agree that the 'continental breakfast' probably isn't worth bothering with.

I have stayed here many many times over the last 30 years. More so since I moved away from the Santa Maria area. I love the people. Some rooms still need updating but some have been done. I love the rooms around the pool on the bottom floor. I heard a rumor that they are going to maybe change and... More

The rose garden inn in Santa Maria California should be condemned. I feel sorry for the roaches and bed bugs that live in this cesspool. We booked this room online and this place was nothing like the pictures. When we got to the hotel the parking lot was actually full of beds,toilets tvs dirty linens etc. From some rooms being...

My wife and two sons stayed here out of sheer necessity after I failed to book a room for us in a timely manner. Although, I have seen worst places, this is exactly what you would expect for a roadside motel. If they put half the effort into maintaining the rooms as they do the lobby, this would be a... More

This was the first hotel I ever stayed in that I felt I would come out of the shower more dirty then going in. The beds were bad and the sheets didn't cover the mattress. All the furniture looks from the 1980s. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Stay at another place.

I should have questioned why the front desk said refunds would not be given after 20 minutes if I didn't like the room! Asked for a room on the first floor due to traveling with my dogs, only to find that the bathroom window had no screen and wouldn't lock. Glass shower door was cracked and "fixed" with tape, burn...

I wish I would have check out the YELP rating before I booked this Hotel. The room was outdated, run down and dirty. We arrived pretty late in the night, but it was so dusty, I was coughing all night. I have asthma so used my inhalers throughout the night. First thing in the morning about 7:00 am we informed...

I found that hotel cause I need a place just for one night for me and my friends. It wasnt the best choice I could do. We arrive at night, it was pretty cold outside but guy from the reception let us stay outside over 20 minutes to fill all documents for the group. Rooms and bathrooms were dirty and... More

The room was filthy. Burn marks around bathtub, holes in the walls, crayon marks on the walls, something red smeared on the walls and only God knows what the stains were on the carpet. YUCK! The woman in the office was rude, it goes on and on.

Due to a family emergency in Santa Maria we ended up booking this hotel since it seems nice from the pictures, easy freeway access and modest price. From the outside it looked decent, but when we entered our rooms we were very dissapointed to find dirty, old rugs and beat up furnishings. Their so called "breakfast" was a joke: a... More
