We stayed here while in town for a family funeral. We chose it because of the kitchenettes and the pool. The kitchen was convenient with kids, but the pool was a lot smaller than the pictures make it look. But my main beef is that we booked a room that included breakfast. when we checked in they gave us vouchers but did not explain how to use them. The restaurant was understaffed, so the service was slow although the waiters were working hard. So to get out of there we charged it to the room, figuring we could work it out later. Not so, the manager refused to credit us for those vouchers. We only ate there because it was prepaid, we definitely could have eaten faster and cheaper somewhere else.
In addition, the front desk was not well staffed, no one had enough towels or could get any more, and the elevators are slow. The layout of the hotel is odd, and many of the rooms are very far from the lobby and elevators. Don't waste your time, there a several other hotels in Santa Maria.
