This small B&B was perfect for us. We had an early flight and wanted to be close to the airport. The staff was incredibly friendly and hospitable. There isn't much around the hotel, but we weren't really looking for entertainment. The rooms are equipped with a TV and A/C. We left too early to experience the breakfast, but I am...

When we found this hotel on TripAdvisor we selected it because it appeared to be close to the airport and we were only going to stay one night before picking up our rental car and heading south. Our room was quite basic though it did have A/C. The room was upstairs so be prepared to carry your luggage up. The...

Santa Maria Inn was close to the airport which was great to catch an early flight and return rental car. Front desk person was very friendly and helpful, rooms were okay. Would recommend for a short stay rather than a long extended stay.

“Small rooms. Comfortable bed. Dated Television unit and window airconditioner. Front 2nd floor units allow for view of airport and mountain range. On a clear day can view smoking volcano. No microwave, or room refrigerator in room, but a common use area has a refrigerator, microwave and counter top for food preparation.”
