“Cheap, not so cheerful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We got the room at a very good rate, but it was dark and cramped. The sink was in the bedroom, weird. The walls are very thin and the place definitely needs a good scrubbing and some refurbishing. One bright spot: The short order cook named Sonny was cooking up a storm on a very busy Sunday morning. There was a very long line and he kept all the orders straight and was friendly, to boot. It's the reason I gave the hotel 3 stars.

Green Features: There was a blue recycle container in the room. Helpful.

Very nice hotel; complimentary breakfast and evening reception are very good. However, thin room walls: I clearly heard casual conversations in next room. Coffee maker in my room was broken (which I discovered at 4 AM). Reported to manager and was told it would be taken care of. However, when I returned to my room in the evening, it was not changed. Nice lobby, restaurant, pool, but rooms a little "tired."

I'll be travelling with my girlfriend and some friends from Lake Tahoe to LA in mid June and we've been searching for a cheap and cheerful place to break up the two day journey. One of our friends suggested this hotel based on its price; which is very good. Naturally, I was skeptical due to the disparity in price between the Embassy Rooms and other similar hotels along the way - especially as many are already booked out. So, to investigate further I arrived here. And the Manager's response to each and every review pretty much seals the deal for me. What a great way to conduct business. That's the primary reason I'll be booking a room here today. I'll give a follow up review on the place after I've stayed.

The walls were paper thin, no sink in the bathroom, the best part of Lompoc was the Italian restaurant across the street - excellent. The breakfast was ok to good, served up quickly and well done. Coffee was OK. All in all, it was an expensive motel for what you got.

We wanted a short get-away without the expense of hotels in neighboring Santa Barbara. This Embassy Suites Hotel was clean, staff was pleasant and accomodating, and food/drinks were good & plentiful. Grill cook at breakfast was incredibly fast - even with picky orders!! Thanks.

we stayed here cuz my daughter had a basketball competition in Lompoc. We checked in at 12 but was told our room wasn't ready yet so we have to wait til 3 pm.
when we got in our room, the set up was weird...there's no sink in the bathroom - it is outside of the bathroom. the bathroom is located in the master's bedroom and therefore, if you use the toilet, you basically have to wash your hands outside.
the other thing is, the sink emits a bad smell.
also, the a/c wasn't functioning perfectly.
forgot to mention, the ice dispenser was located at the front of the building and our room was at the very back....we were going crazy just trying to find the ice dispenser. there's only 1 for each floor.
however, i like the free breakfast and the free snacks at night.

Clean, except inside drawers. Nice garden area. Our rooms were very small. 'Living room' crowded; it would be really claustrophobic to open a sofa bed there. Weak lighting. Inadequate breakfast facilities. Long lines. Not up to Embassy Suites snuff.

Thank you so much for posting about your trip. I must agree with your comments about breakfast being so popular. With a comfy bed, a lot of our guests do like to sleep in and seem to all make their way to breakfast at the same time. Making it downstairs at the start of the breakfast is the one tip that I like to pass on to all of our weekend guests. Hopefully your next trip to the Lompoc - Central Coast area will be at a time when the hotel is a little less busy and you can partake in one of our famous Embassy omelets! Also, if you are looking for a suite with a little more room in the bedroom area, I recommend looking into a King Executive Non Smoking! They have a great additional seating area in the bedroom. If we can ever be of any service, don't hesitate to reach out to us at LOMCA_GM@hilton.com.

Regards,
