Great food and lodgings! Very helpful staff too! Every room is named after a state. The breakfast was wonderful too. Hit breakfast items but I loved the oatmeal with all the topping choices. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others .

I was surprised at how big and wonderful this place was, everything was extremely clean, and my mini suite was beyond believable. We had small living room with tv and couch, and seperate room with king size bed and tv. Hubby and I could each watch our own shows in each room, bed was extremely comfortable and never heard any...

We had a very good time at this hotel. This was a pet friendly hotel and there was no extra charge for pets. We visited this nice and clean hotel on 3/25/2017 and could recommend to anyone who wants to have a pleasant time in Santa Maria. Room was specious with comfortable beds, refrigerator, and microwave.

Stayed below staircase and is noisy when people come and go. Refig. Rattled everytime it turned on. Had to move it away from the wall slightly, that helped a lot. Multiple Motorcycle riders started up engines in the AM and let them run for a long time. Seemed like forever. Not hotel's fault.

My image of Best Western was apparently dated or limited, because this was possibly the nicest experience I've had staying in a motel. We had two rooms for our family of four, and everyone found the rooms comfortable, well lit, and well-appointed. One other review recently mentioned the shower, and yes, it was very good. I always worry about noise,...

Needs upgrading and laundry facility. Good location and setup, but need to be improvement in quality of property and ability to make one feel like they're getting their value for price paid. I believe they are living on the fact that they have a Best Western franchise and one should pay pay top dollar.

This hotel had just redone their rooms when we stayed, with new carpet and furniture, so it was very comfortable. The shower was THE best shower, and their complimentary breakfast was excellent! If you are in Santa Maria, I would highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel has recently been remodeled. Our 2 night stay was in a larger than expected room which was nicely decorated. The bathroom was large and included a dressing table. Breakfast was above normal: you make waffles, a variety of cereals both hot and cold, chafing dishes with eggs, bacon, potatoes and biscuits and gravy, yum. Service and staff were...

The people who staff the reception area were so friendly and helpful! They offered us dining tips, maps, and even remembered out dogs' names! (They are a pet friendly lodging, of course.) They offer nice chocolate chip cookies and self-serve tea/coffee in the lobby all of the time, and the self-serve breakfast the next morning was definitely adequate. Our room...
