What a great change to this hotel with the renovated rooms, improved customer service, and bar menu!!! I was here a few years back and swore I would never return due to the service and room quality. However, with me needing to stop into the area on a whim I was left with this hotel or back tracking while tired. I know with all of the Covid-19 precautions things aren’t the best in the country. However, this hotel was fully functional with a good team ready and willing to take care of me. I will be back to ensure this wasn’t a fluke experience. Oh yeah, you have to have the asada fries with fresh jalapeños!!!

We were here with a seminar group. Staff was very helpful and friendly and provided exactly what we needed. Our room was great! Large, Clean, comfortable, heater worked since it was cold outside, Quiet. Everything worked in the bathroom, however the water flow was a little slow in the shower, but we survived! The bed was very comfortable and we slept really well. Private balcony. Outside big pool. Next to the highway but did not hear it from inside the room. Plenty of parking area. Our group had a nice hot meal of scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast, juice, coffee/tea for breakfast. We enjoyed it and will be back.

It seems like this hotel had its heyday in the 80s or so when hotels were built much differently -- but don't get me wrong, the management has done their best to keep up with updates. That being said, it's definitely an older hotel with huge, cavernous rooms. As a business traveler who travels by himself, I don't particularly care for a huge room, but I can imagine a family would love it. My room was clean, and each one looks like it comes with its own private balcony, which is pretty great. No free breakfast, but the paid breakfast was spot-on.

Good option for a stop over between San Francisco and Los Angeles on Pacific highway 101. Staff was courteous. Restaurant arranged special veg breakfast upon request, closer to high way. Shopping arcade was few miles away.

Hotel is at a good location but our room was ok. The room had a stale air smell in it you til you turned on the air conditioning. The breakfast was not something how I expected. You had to order over a menu and were limited to $13 per person or would have to pay out of pocket (not breakfast included like other holiday inn). Even the coffee costs $3.50. we only stayed one night so it wasn't a problem but for longer stay I would have second thoughts.

Response from IHGService, General Manager at Holiday Inn Santa Maria
Responded Feb 4, 2020
Hello Mitul A, It is great to hear from you. We are determined to ensure that our hotels are always clean, our service is friendly, and everything works. It seems that this was not the case. Despite the accessibility of the property and your room being comfortable. It is unfortunate that we were not able to elevate your experience with better service and breakfast options at the restaurant to bring more value to the quality of your stay. We have raised your concerns with Hotel management and will look into issues you have raised. At the end of the day, it is the smile that we see in our guests and the joy that you share of your stay that we always look forward to. This is what we want you and our guests to experience when you come visit us. I hope you will give us another chance to show you that your unsatisfactory stay was an exception. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Hector P Case Manager IHGService
