“Nice and clean, great for sleep over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Nice and clean motel. Location is not so nice (forget about walking anywhere or even finding nice place to eat out), so I would only recommend this place to sleep, have breakfast and get going. Staff is very friendly. Overall great value.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Was in town for my cousin's wedding. Stayed here with my wife and son in a suite booked through costco. Good price, rooms seemed very dated. Staff at the front was helpful some of the time but other times were unable to help because one of the staff had "not shown up". Would probably stay here again due to the good value. I was not impressed with breakfast.

Staying at BA, with Grandma's Home nearby, was a wonderful experience.
Housekeeping was so there, at all times.
Your front office "Point People," Joe & Debby, were just fabulous.
They were so professional, while all the time maintaining an affability that was incredibly warming.
BW is fortunate to have these human assets!!
Thank You for the incredible support!!!!!!!!!!

We enjoyed our stay at Big America. The kids loved the heated pool. the whole property is clean and well kept. The rooms were large with micro, refer, and coffe maker. In addition, the separate rooms for bath and toilet added to the privacy. Even the heater was quieter than usual. Breakfast was included and ample with fresh waffles, biscuits and gravy, breakfast burrito and all the other standard fare. The staff was friendly and efficient. The location was great for a trip to the coast with easy access to Pismo, Solvang, and the wine country.

Room Tip: First floor near the back gave the best privacy.

We stayed for one night. Nice room and very comfortable bed. Really nice bathroom area - large - like a master bathroom with separate toilet area. Had a good breakfast - nice variety of food. Would definitely stay again.

We arrived early, they were very accommodating as far as early check in. Our puppies loooved it, we unloaded into the room which upon entering I was taken back my early years in my grandparents house, a tad dated, all that was missing was the smell of bengay...lol despite it being dated the bed was extremely comfy, lots of pillows, the bathroom was very clean n roomy. I was very pleased. Very quiet considering the place was packed, cable was mediocre as far as channel selections, coffee was Seatles Best, their breakfast are delicious, I'd stay here again.
