We were guests on the 29th and 30th of January. Our first room while lovely had a very annoying noise. We contacted the front desk and they sent up your engineering man named Randy. He was awesome in trying to find the source of the noise and investigated all the rooms around ours both above and below to try and... More

I found the staff to be pleasant even though we had a company sales meeting during the off season and they were a bit understaffed. The restaurant was great and I really liked the wine tasting bar in the basement. I found the rooms to be spacious and comfortable. I would like to compliment the bar staff for being so... More

The were (are) in the middle of renovations, so I'm sure it'll be nicer once finished. The rooms were a nice size, but very dated in many regards. Ultimately, it was a cool place to stay at for a couple of nights.

There is some historic charm mixed with dated fixtures and scuff and wear, but overall it was clean and pleasant. The Hotel is quite large and has plenty of space to explore. The room was large and the bed was plush and comfortable, but the bathroom could do with a revamp. In our room the window locks for the windows... More

This is a clean, comfortable place to rest your head, but the musty, moldy smell is very bad. The bathroom tile in our room was old, chipped, and cracked. The bath cabinet was old and nees to be repaired or replaced. The shower/ tub was clean and the water flow was fine. No drainage problems. The price seemed a bit... More

I hadn't stayed there since I was a kid. The staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The food was wonderful. The price was reasonable and they still have smoking rooms available. We are both handicapped, but our room was very close to the elevator. And our dog was welcome. I still have family in Santa Maria, so I will certainly... More

We stayed in the historic side of the hotel. The John Wayne" room was clean and comfortable, the place was amazing with names of famous Hollywood stars. We were treated well by the staff and the breakfast buffet was good and reasonably priced. Definitely will be back again.

Recently my girlfriend and I wanted to get out of LA for a quick but fun road trip. We randomly chose to stay at the Historic Santa Maria Inn and we were completely amazed by the little treasure we had found. First, request to stay in the old portion. There is so much cool old Hollywood history here and many... More
