Have never stayed in Santa Maria before; great first visit at this charming old hotel. We stayed in the old inn side and the room was beautifully updated. The king bed was very comfortable and so were the pillows. I've stayed in old hotels before and the rooms weren't quiet, but this hotel room was very quiet. Reasonably priced and...

I stay at the Santa Maria Inn four times a year for business. I absolutely love the property. And I also love the history of the hotel. I have never stayed in the new section though. I have always stayed in the original hotel. They always take care of my room request. For the most part. During peak season sometimes...

If you like making memories when you are going on vacation, the Santa Maria Inn is a great place to start. Sure, you can stay at a Travelodge or Four Seasons but, do you remember what the rooms look like in those places? The courtyards, the windows? I doubt it. This place is chock full of Santa Maria history. We...

My daughter enjoyed her 17th birthday with a few friends that we invited to sleep over. The Inn was very helpful and helped us celebrate her birthday by being very friendly and ask us if there was anything they could assist us with. We stayed in a double queen suite with separate living area with fireplace, kitchen and view of...

This was our second visit here. Check in was fast. We had a room facing the parking structure and they changed the room for us to the other end facing the swimming pool area. We liked the fact that there are quite a Few restaurants within walking distance. We tried looking for the spa but could not find it. Staff...

comfortable room, actually very LARGE room. safe feeling, door locks, decent TV, good internet. but it is old...floor creaks, if you're into that then you'll love it. this place is probably really old. good bar...NO FREE Breakfast...which is a big staple with the larger established chains. no fridge, no microwave...just the basics.

If a modern hotel is your style you might want to stay here for a different experience and perspective. The twists and turns of hallways with the thoughts of historic figures that may have traveled the same paths, courtyard getaway are just a few of the unique treasures you will find.

This hotel is 100 years old and very charming! We loved our stay there. Great pub downstairs! 1/2 hour drive on the 101 to San Luis Obispo. Walking distance to a DELICIOUS steakhouse across the street and Santa Maria's mall. Affordable and clean!

It may be a historic hotel but it would be nice to have a newer carpeting in the room, have a heater that does not make noise, pedestal sink that is better secured to the wall, and a few other matters that could be reasonably easy to update. For some very odd reason, there was a half dozen of square...

We like to stay at the Santa Maria Inn every time we are in Santa Maria. The rooms are always comfortable and clean. The beds are very comfortable too. We stayed in a large suite with a fireplace this time and it was like being at my house. It had a kitchen, dinning room, living room with fireplace and a...
