4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room had big mirrors all around to make it look very spacious, and it was indeed. We had a king bed and a queen bed, located separately with an air conditioner in each room. The channel guide was very useful and there were many to choose from. Overall very good for money and definitely recommend staying here on budget.

Stayed for the night on 8/20/16 and don't have a single complaint. We arrived late (around 11pm) and the front desk was more than accommodating... they even gave us a ground floor room so we wouldn't have to drag our big suitcases upstairs. Breakfast the next morning was nicer than I expected and those waffles are good! Room conditions were... More

This place was on the pricey side though it is in the southern part of California, in the middle of summer and not many room available in the area. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was very large. Everything was very clean and comfy. It definitely made up for the price. We ate at the restaurant next door.... More

Got this on a deal this time from PL, though it is hard it seems to get under $100 because there aren't as many good hotels in SM. Nevertheless, BW here has been updated since my last stay two years ago for the better. The room is still spacious but it is a little more modern. The breakfast buffet offers... More

Aside from the sketchy neighborhood, the Best Western Plus Big America, Santa Maria, is very nice. The rooms are very large, with the biggest bathroom I have ever had in a hotel. The beds are comfortable and we didn't hear any noise. They could put some bigger refrigerators in the rooms, though. Don't count on bringing anything that needs to... More

This Motel was noisy. The walls are thin and cars parked right outside the door makes for a more noisy experience. The room was clean, Motel staff was helpful, everything worked fine. I felt it was overpriced for the quality of the structure.

What a relief. After a long drive and last night staying in a random inn that was very poor I was slightly worried as this place was much cheaper. However, the room was excellent. Two very comfy beds with a nice bathroom. All very clean. I was very impressed. Especially with the price. Best Western is definitely the way forward.... More

Having read all the great reviews and being very impressed with the low price, I booked three rooms at this BW Plus for a family trip we were making with our two children and their families. I must preface by saying that I haven't stayed in a BW for many years now, as I am very allergic to cigarette smoke... More
