“Reasonable hotel - value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

We stayed at this hotel two nights because we wanted to do a winetour in this district. The staff at the hotel was friendly, but was not able to give us good information about winetours, which we found strange, since this is a wine region. We found a good touring-company on our own, though. The room, especially the bathroom, was spacious and had nice, bright colors. The bed was comfortable! Breakfast has been highly praised at this hotel, but it soon becomes very crowded due to the small space. And when will recycling be introduced?
We were warned not to go by foot to the restaurants in the area, since this was not entirely safe. It was therefore not possible to walk to restaurants, we had to either take a taxi or drive ourself. This was a bit cumbersome, since we had to wait a long time for a taxi.

Thank you for sharing your comments about your recent visit. I am sorry our staff was not more helpful in providing local wine information as we have a variety of winery information located in our front lobby. We are excited to be introducing personalized wine tours this Fall – a much needed amenity for the Santa Maria area.

Marriott hotels practice eco-friendly procedures, and the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Santa Maria has a recycling program in place.

While some eateries are within a block of the hotel, fine dining establishments do require travel from the hotel. Unfortunately the streets in Santa Maria are not well lit, and our number one concern is the safety of our guest.

Sincerely,

Pam Lyon

Visiting relatives and conducting some business in Santa Maria. Searched for a reasonable hotel near the town center and were not disappointed in our choice. There are many brand name motels in the area and one historic property. But we decided to go for the safe choice. I'm glad we did.The hotel is conveniently located near a freeway exit, the room was spacious and comfortable. We took other Tripadvisor reviewers recommendation and asked for a room away from the freeway noise. There is a little store near the front desk where one can purchase snacks and even frozen dinners. The rooms do not have microwave ovens but we were told we could use the one in the breakfast room area. Nice touch. We were not looking for a resort but were pleasantly surprised to see that there was a gym and pool (which we didn't have time to use).

Room Tip: Quieter rooms on the parking lot side.

This hotel is fairly new 1-2 yrs old.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable the hotel is laid out like most Marriott Fairfield’s.
When I travel to Santa Maria I always stay at this hotel.
The staff is friendly and stand ready to help with any requests you may have.
Close to several restaurants located in the area.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the parking lot. The rooms located facing the road can be noisy

This was a very modern and new hotel, the shower curtain did not even look like it had ever been used before. A really nice room, facilties available: laundry, pool fitness room and breakfast. Breakfast was not great but well presented and included. Staff were very helpful . The only downside was that we had a room on to the street which was quite loud from the traffic.

The Fairfield Inn is a bit pricy for a place without a full breakfast, refrig and micro. There are nearby places to stay with a price of $25-35 cheaper, just as good and provideing this items mentioned. Check it out. We also had some modest issues that should not have occurred and we not addressed as I would have expected.

Room Tip: Check our some of the competition

Drove to Jocko's from the Bay Area for dinner, then stayed at the Fairfield Inn in Santa Maria. The price was better than the others I checked into, they didn't require a two night minimum like most of the others and it was very, very clean. The bed was very comfortable, free internet access, nice size t.v. Spacious bathroom and everything in it seemed brand new. The breakfast was o.k. Good coffee, good waffles, the rest was average - cereal, bagels, muffins, etc. We had one room on the Broadway Street side and one room on the entrance side and we didn't experience any noise as I had read in some reviews. Close to hwy 101 & easy to find. The staff was friendly and check-in and check-out were very easy. Would recommend it and will definitely stay there again.
