O'Cairns Inn & Suites
Ranked #1 of 11 Hotels in Lompoc
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We found O'Cairns on the Internet and thought the reviews sounded great so we chose to stay here. We were not disappointed the staff was friendly and accommodating, the amenities were everything we had read about on trip advisor. We enjoyed happy hour, I had a nice white wine and my husband found great beer on tap, he even took a drink back to the room.
The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was first class, I had a veggie omelet and fresh fruit .... Delicious!
If you are like us and don't know anything about the area, Lompoc is not a place we would normally go for vacation, it was a convenient place to spend the night but not really anything to see or do there.
O'Cairns Inn is definitely the place to stay if you are in Lompoc.

Travelling down the West Coast of California we needed a stay for the night around Lompoc. I had used Trip Advisor for some ideas of where to stay and boy did this one really live up to its excellent rating. Rooms clean and spacious. Reception staff excellent. Complimentary DVD rental, complimentary ice-cream, complimentary Happy Hour and the best complimentary breakfast of our whole trip. How do they manage top provide all this for the price of the room. Wish there were more of them around. Wi-Fi reception was unreliable

We basically checked in and didn't pay a thing after that! There was a FREE happy hour, with pizza and wings. FREE cooked breakfast the next morning...All the staff from check-in until check-out were kind and courteous, very helpful..I have never stayed at a place that was all about the customer...

The room was basic but comfortable,there was a pool that looked like it would be a lot of fun in warmer weather... The hot tub could use some work, and was very hot but we did not use either because it was too cold.

I really can't say enough about the hospitality at this hotel. You will not be sorry to stay here.

Room Tip: we were able to park right outside the door, easy to get in and out.

What a wonderful hotel to stay at. The staff goes out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. The rooms are very clean and spacious.

Location is perfect for visiting just about anywhere in Lompoc Valley and surrounding areas. Can not say enough about the amenities - excellent. Just to name a few… complimentary soda and water in the lobby, DVD’s to watch while relaxing, another couple would have to be the breakfast and happy hour are terrific that have some of the friendliest of people.

Summer and spring there is always the pool and spa to visit.

Stayed here already several times in the last year and looking forward to the next stay.

Room Tip: South side has the morning sun.

Our stay at O'Cairns the week of 4-12-2013 was wonderful. The rooms were good sized and clean. The surroundings were quiet. The staff was friendly and accomodating and the breakfast was anything but "continental". It was American all the way!! Free WiFi too!! There is no question of where I will stay the next time I am visiting my family in Lompoc!!

After finding this property on TripAdvisor, we chose O'Cairns for the many amenities that were offered. This is a well maintained property located close to a number of enjoyable places with beautiful scenery when you drive through the area.
We arrived at about noon, and the manager checked with the maid and learned that our room had just been cleaned. We found a room that was clean and comfortable. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in too.
The Inn offers a happy hour from 5 - 8 p.m. with a variety of local beers on tap as well as several good wines and mixed drinks. The bartender, Lyn, was friendly and efficient.
Breakfast in the morning is not your "continental" breakfast but a complete breakfast cooked to order. There are a number of choices as well as juice, and coffee.
To top it off, there are a variety of complimentary beverages available in the lobby 24/7. There are also a number of snack items for sale that can be taken back to your room where you have a full size refrigerator and a microwave oven.
The management has done a great job of balancing what to upgrade and what to keep in order to make the facility attractive, comfortable and reasonably priced. Some of the furnishings are dated, but all are in good working order. The bed and shower are great! Kudos to everyone who made our trip so enjoyable. We will be returning.

Room Tip: There are no elevators to access the 2nd floor.

We were in Lompoc to attend a family birthday party and needed a couple of rooms someplace nearby to spend the night. Based upon the T/A reviews I chose O'Cairn's. I arrived early (1:00 PM) and asked to 'check-in', but did not need access to the rooms until much later that evening. They found two rooms next to each other that were ready, so I put a few things in the room. The property is a bit dated, but well kept. The rooms were nice, but the carpet was dirty in booth rooms. I was surprised to see a full (apartment) sized refrigerator in the room.

The queen bed was comfortable and the shower was clean. There were only 2 towels, but a couple more arrived in minutes after a call to the front desk. The room rate included a full breakfast of choice in their on premises restaurant. The portions were generous and my omelet was cooked as ordered. Others ordered pancakes, which were great and French toast, which was not so great.

If my travels return me to the Lompoc area and require an overnight stay, I would consider O'Cairn's as a first choice.
