I'm so happy we staid here for one night on our road trip. Came from San Francisco and headed for LA. Loved the old style with the tap room, classic English pub environment. Room was generously large and we were four people in our family sharing the room.

The receptionists were professional, but a little aloof. They could have been just a little more warm and friendly. The room was okay for our one night stay. It was clean, quiet, old, and adequate for our needs, since we only slept there. The bed was not as comfortable as we would have liked. The price was around $187.00 for...

I reserved Santa Maria Inn at Priceline.com for my family's road trip from SF to LA. The outlook of this Inn is pretty historical, and there are two building, one taller building on the left side, another 2 floors building on the right side with a restaurant on the first floor. When we walked into the front desk to do...

We've stayed here several times.This is the first time in the historic part of the hotel. The rooms identify what famous stars stayed in them when the inn was a stop over on the way to Hearst Castle or San Francisco. It can be pricey depending on events in town.

I'm not sure I have ever done a negative review before, I try to be fair and talk about the positives, but, there's always a first time and this is it... Although this may be an historic property, it is so neglected dirty and shabby that it is way past its prime. Deferred maintenance is being kind. Do NOT accept...

The lobby, dining room, and pub are historic and very pretty. There are beautiful gardens and stainglass windows on the main floor. The original rooms have been refreshed. The Inn definitely needs to provide a map as the rooms are hard to find and the signage is lacking. We stayed two different nights. The first night the room smelled musty...

We loved it here. We got the wine package and stayed in the historic part of the hotel. Our time there was amazing. Wish they would have had a King room available. But our queen room was lovely. Love how rooms have a star on the door for what celebrity has stayed there in the past. Love the nostalgic feel....

Loved staying here! My husband and I have stayed at this hotel about four times now and I love it! It is an older hotel, however, very well maintained. There are basically two parts to the hotel, the older part and the newer part. The older rooms are a little bit smaller, but clean and comfortable. Some of the rooms...

We stayed at the Inn over Halloween and had requested and received rooms in the old section. First we were delighted to see the Hotel had embraced the season with Halloween decorations all around. I know the Inn as been there since 1917 so I was hoping for and did find all the ambiance and charm from a hotel with...

My fiancé and I arrived in the town early evening, looking for a place to stay and initially drove passed. The further we drove, it appeared we were moving further out of town so we turned around and booked a room with 2 king beds. Although we faced the main road, we didn't hear any traffic noise. In addition, a...
