This hotel went the "extra mile" to make accommodations for us and our dog, when all other internet sites said they were booked! They even offered us a good location for a lower rate! The people who work (clerks, maids, etc) are very nice and the rooms are always clean.

Great room, good beds, friendly staff, excellent breakfast, comfortable swimming pool. This hotel has everything for a great summer holiday trip. Minor downside: not too many restaurants nearby, so you'll probably drive a couple of miles to find a meal to your satisfaction.

It's a motel. One enters the room from the parking lot, which makes for some loud sounds. That's the reality of motels. If you can accept that, you'll be fine. We found the bed very comfortable, the room clean but outdated, and the price very reasonable. We didn't have breakfast there but it was included in the price. A good... More

Was a great hotel with great family suites. This suited our family that was travelling home to Alberta from Disney. The pool being open late was perfect for our kids to swim before going to bed. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was big. Breakfast was good and lots of room to sit. Recommend this to everyone

I stayed twice at the Best Western Plus in Santa Maria - as a stop over on my way south and back north to the Bay Area. Both times the room was really clean and the bed was extremely comfortable.

We arrived early, a couple of hours prior to normal check-in time, and the room was not ready. The front desk ladies checked on when the room might be ready, let us know and we went to have a bite of lunch. On our return, the room was ready. It was large, clean and well-maintained. Everything about our short two-night... More

It's a motel, but the bed was extremely comfortable and the shower had great water pressure (two of the best possible amenities a hotel can have, imo). Clean and pretty lobby, not so much in the room. Average, but included, breakfast.
