“Nice staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We pulled in to the Fairfield Inn & Suites after driving the Pacific Coast Highway #1 on a most beautiful sunny day. The Hotel is fairly easily located but is one of those Hotels that is sort of plunked in the middle of an oasis of pavement. Our room was located at the back of the Hotel so the view wasn't the nicest although the staff at the desk said it would be quieter. My main negative for this Hotel is that it really didn't seem well sound-proofed and you could hear guests out in the hallway very easily. The main positive of this Hotel was the staff at the Front Desk. They were very friendly and asked where we were heading out for dinner and on our departure day gave us some great recommendations about the drive ahead and places to see. The breakfast room was standard fare although it was so jam-packed full of people on the Sunday morning that there were no places to sit. We got a yogurt and a microwaved egg and ham sandwich but sat out on the front patio which was pretty chilly to eat it. The room we had was clean but I always like a separate TV area and this one was all in one.

Stayed here overnight on a recent road trip and found it to be good. The front desk person was pleasant and friendly, the lobby was bright and clean as were the halls. The room we had was quiet, clean, beds were good, we slept well and the breakfast was good too. The pillows were small, the sheets and the towels thin - as in all Fairfields - why can't they use better quality?
Good place to stay in for an overnighter although we found it to be a little difficult to find so stay attentive when getting off the highway.

Most things about the hotel were equally as good as my first visit except that this time we traveled with family & friends and occupied 5 rooms. After driving down to Jockos for a great dinner I had planned on having everyone over to my room to watch the rest of the niners game and to visit a while. My room was so ridiculously small and 3 of our other rooms were just a bit bigger. We ended up getting together in the fifth room which was spacious & quite comfortable and comparable to the first time that I stayed there. My room didn't have a refrigerator as the others did and didn't have room for an extra chair to sit on. Other than that the rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable and it's a nice, relaxing place to stay. The coffee & breakfast are good for a quick bite before getting back on the road. It was nice to be able to spend only one night since most hotels around there require a two night stay. We usually only go down for one night. We will stay at this hotel again but know to ask next time for the larger rooms. The bathroom in room 318 is as big as the bedroom. They should have constructed a smaller bathroom and made the bedroom bigger; at least to fit another chair & fridge.

Room Tip: Refuse room 318. I normally don't have a problem with a small room but it needs a fridge & a...

Got in late, worried that not having been there before , the hotel would be a nightmare... That was NOT the case... the staff got me some fresh brewed cofee, helped my find my rewards number, and treated me like a king.....

Very nice place, clean, quiet and a good deal!

Wow, this is a Marriott hotel?!  Can I go any lower on the rating, if so, it's a zero!  I am seriously reconsidering being a Marriott rewards member. I can hear my voice echo in this room.  No way to plug in my iPod to listen to music because the alarm clock looks like it came from big lots.  Tv is smaller than my computer monitor, and the HDMI access won't even let you connect to watch video or hook-up laptop or camera. This is a new hotel? Isn't this 2012?  Omg... Just noticed the bi-fold door for a closet... Wow!  I'm in a trailer park. Didn't even know they made such a thing anymore.  Hope the smoke/fire detectors are real and not stick-on.  This place leaves much to be desired.  Staff is smug, as if they are doing you a favor to be allowed to stay here. By the way, I can hear you people in the hall and across the hall, every word.  Absolutely no privacy here --Paper walls.

I stayed at Fairfield Inn & Suites on 07/26-27, 2012. The staff wants to please. The room and bathroom were clean and modern (about 300 sq. ft. total) The bed was great and I slept well. Ask for the parking-lot side of the building as the other side is on a busy parkway, even with their sound-proofing. They have a small inside swiming pool (28' x 15') a hot? tub (96' when I was in it) and a very cute gym that has free weights, 2 treadmills and a cross-country ski machine, all modern equipment. Breakfast was ok with waffels, breads, fruit, yogurt, and Breakfast Sandwichs. Coffee is B-. If I have to be in Santa Maria again, I would come back!!!
