“Extended Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

I have been staying at O'Cairns during the week for the last 10 weeks. Everyone at this Inn are wonderful - from the front desk to the house keepers. The rooms are exceptional - always clean and tidy. The court yard area around the hotel is always spic and span - never any litter blowing around. The happy hour is top notch - always a friendly face on the other side of the bar. Not really a breakfast person - but when I have eaten there it was great - quick and friendly - good food. The front desk personnel are always professional and cheery - will go out of their way to help you with anything that you may need. The pool area has a gas grill and a fire pit - always has oak wood and fire starter on hand. Also there are all of the amenities that you may need to cookout with in the gazebo area. Really is a home away from home. I have stayed out of town for work quite often and I have to tell you - this is one of the best hotels/inns that I have ever had the pleasure of stay in. Really a topnotch Inn. I will always stay at an O’Cairns affiliation whenever I can!!! Beth, Angie, Eric, Michelle and Patrick – thank you for making my stay a great experience.

We have stayed in Lompoc as it is close to La Purisima golf course. We have stayed at many places, most good value for the money. The little bit extra you pay here is made up for by the countless freebies, but the real value is the quality of the room itself.

freebies: free cooked breakfast. free cocktails from 5-8 each night. free ice cream from the front desk. free energy bars from the front desk. free wi-fi. free dvds to use.

the room: slightly larger than normal hotel room with flat screen tv, very comfortable bed and quality bathroom amenities.

there is no doubt we will use this motel in the future. it stands alone.

the service: second to none, from the front desk to the bar staff.

Room Tip: please note: no room service. couldn't delete the item.

Such nice comps that you dont ever see anywhere else: wifi, drinks, 3000 dvd's & big TV, cooked-to-order breakfast. Even the bathroom amenities are of high quality. No need to stay in Buelton/Solvang. Stay here instead. The price is great and it's just so comfortable.

The king size pillow top bed is the closest to our home bed we've encountered in a hotel. O'Cairns' is a great, relaxing experience that is in a class all by itself. We weren't able to take advantage of all the 'freebies' there are so many, but the 'order from the menu breakfast' was fantastic! Lompoc is definitely off the beaten path, but the visit to O'Cairns is definitely worth the trip. It was a great experience for both of us. We will definitely return!

Thank you for one of the all time best hotel experiences my wife and I have ever had. I made reservations online and then after reading all of the excellent reviews we decided once we got there to upgrade to a suite. The price was very reasonable and the room was outstanding. We definitely plan on staying again. I frequently have business in Solvang and have been staying there on my trips up and spending much more for much less. I believe I'll be spending those nights at O'cairns from now on.

Room Tip: This was our first stay but judging from the other reviews I'm sure all of the rooms will be equ...

I have stayed at this hotel a few time. As a contractor being in town for long stays, you could not ask for a better place. rooms are nice and clean. Michel and Justin to name 2 at the front desk are always very helpful. the full breakfast is great, does not matter what is on the menu, if they have it they will make it for you. Happy hour with Angela is the perfect way to unwind at the end of the day. she is a pleasant person and makes everyone fell at home. their is something about being treated like you are part of the community and not just a guest.

We spontaneously drove toward Santa Barbara, CA on Valentine's weekend Saturday. Traffic was so heavy we began to worry about having no reservations. As I phoned the obvious chains there were NO VANCANCY everywhere. We drove to Lompoc because we love the location between SB and SLO. We had never stayed there before. We found O'Cairns on the main road. We were so lucky they had a room for us. Wonderful stay! Included Breakfast cooked to order from a menu! Huge selection of DVD movies. We caught up on 4! 2 of which were academy award nominees. Management focuses on all the little details to make a stay better. Boxes of girl scout cookies by coffee service in lobby as well as a heart shaped box of chocolates for Valentine's Day. They used to be a Best Western. They said BW had a problem with how above and beyond their service was. I suspect they have such a following that they don't need to pay franchise fees. From now on we plan to stay there every time we head up the coast. Only criticism is the first night we stayed in a suite - the door had fingerprints that needed to be cleaned.

Room Tip: To avoid road noise ask for rooms that face the back.
