I like staying in the old wing. I know it's an old classic inn with a lot of history but it seems that common maintenance is missing. The place is old looking but it's also looking used and shabby. Perhaps current management needs to up their game. Next wine tasting trip I think I'll be staying elsewhere.

We stay at the Santa Maria Inn twice a year and the service is always exceptional. Marie at the front desk is always doing something to make our stay just as special as our very first visit. We had made our reservations with a gentleman who confirm certain rooms we requested and yet they were already sold out. Marie made... More

We were in Santa Maria for a wedding and thought we'd try the Historic Santa Maria Inn. We stayed in the older section, room was clean and roomy - beautiful weather so we were out exploring the area most of the time. The bar was cozy and a fun place to stop, have a nightcap and chat with fellow guests.... More

First of all, this is a really quaint historic hotel. It was clean and well-appointed. The only issue is that is smelled like an old hotel. When we got off the elevator, my husband and I noticed a funky smell in the hallway and our room. It wasn't the type of smell that comes from being dirty but the type... More

We chose this hotel in our way to San Francisco. It has a real good appearance but it needs to be better maintained - dirty floor on the rooms and a strong smell that made all of us sneeze a lot. The space of the rooms are good! But maintain the bathroom dry is a challenge. Breakfast was in a... More

Very pleasant staff. Room in old part of hotel. Nice upgrade to 100 yr old room. Only hiccups in entire stay were very minor. Bed very comfortable, and gave us extra coffee we asked for so we could watch an old Rom/com movie before we hit the road again.

Really disappointed with this hotel. We were given what the receptionist described as one of the best rooms located in the old block. The room was dark and very shabby. Didn't want to spend any time there. The restaurant looked nice but too stuffy for children and after driving up and down the high street four times the only welcoming... More

We turned up without a booking and booked the cheapest room available (around $100 USD) - turns out there was a slight error when the guy was picking a room for us and ended up putting us in the 'Master Suite' on the older, historic side of the hotel and it was lovely! Massive room with a lovely comfy bed,... More

The old Santa Maria Inn has been here since the days of slow travel, often an overnight stop on way to Hearst Castle. When I lived in the town just a block away from the inn, the pub there was my watering hole. For many years, they had bartenders with the last names of Bourbon and Gin, honestly. I stayed... More
