“Nice Room Renovations but Bus Tours still Prevail”
Reviewed September 13, 2010

All of the rooms are finally renovated, down to the carpeting, drapes, bedding. Everything is in good condition, clean, stylish, comfortable . Even the cheapest room will include the flat screen TVs, microwave, nice mini-refrigerator, blowdryer, etc.). Rooms have DSL hookups (didn't use). Bedding is new, comfortable, pillows were interesting, half-size feather or feather-simulated (I didn't check the tags!). I stayed in the smallest room, a Queen single, and it is quite a small room (I'm pretty sure they Motel 6 rooms are bigger). But adequate for one person, even two friendly people. There is an armchair and a writing desk. Lighting is good. I can't fault anything inside the room, other than a running toilet, I had to shut the bathroom door to sleep at night. The A/C is individual units, and they don't look new, but I doubt that there are many days when they are needed. If you get an upper floor then open the window and let some Lompoc fog in at night. I wouldn't recommend leaving open windows on the ground floor, though, for safety reasons.

The main issue with this hotel is that they cater to large bus tours, mostly European. Chances are one or more will roll in at night when you are trying to sleep. If you are next to an elevator forget it! You will hear every roller suitcase crossing the elevator threshold. And no matter what room you are in, there will be some loud jetlagged European yakking in the hallway forgetting (or not realizing) that other guests might need to sleep. The coach tours all get up and swamp the breakfast room as soon as it opens. Not only do you get to wait in line, there are no seats (because even if they are done, they stay seated and save the table for their friends). I suppose the good side is, that since they are on prepaid group rates, there is hardly ever anyone needing to check in or out of the front desk. But at least with the refrigerator and little table in all rooms, you can manage your own breakfast in the room fairly easily. BTW the 24-hour coffee in the lobby is much better than the coffee from the breakfast room.

The happy hour is for people in group tours, the suites or if you are a Choice Priveleges member. Otherwise it is $3. They serve the cheap box wine (Franzia or Almaden), beer, soft drinks, hot dogs, nachos with plastic cheese topping, popcorn, and snack mix.

The hotel front desk staff are always friendly. The business center is a nice bonus there were at least 4 computer stations and two printers (no charge).

In terms of location in Lompoc they're all on H or Ocean, and there's a shopping center across the street, so it's as good as anything.

For a nice upscale meal, I recommed Sissy's in downtown Lompoc. For an alternate breakfast spot, across the street there's Cajun Cafe or Starbucks.

If you can sleep thru anything, it's a nice hotel so I'll recommend with an asterisk for the nice renovations. They do let you cancel until 6pm the arrival day, so if you are noise-sensitive, check in early and if they try to stick you in a room next to the elevator (or anything in that front corridor near the street), bail. You won't sleep through the night and you'll be getting up at around 5 am.

Quality Inn & Suites has changed its name to "Comfort Inn & Suite". The building outside looks quite old but was very imprssed when I stepped inside, the hotel has been remodeled throughout the building and it looks super nice, clean and modern.

I stayed here the past weekend since we could not book any hotel in solvang. Lompoc is the closest city and the hotel rate is reasonable. We booked non smoking room with one queen bed. The room was exactly look like the pictures you have seen on hotel website. Stylish bed frame, clean carpet, super nice bathroom, granite counter top, good shower head with adjustable water volume, flat screen TV with HBO, DSL internet connection. The mattress was nice and firm and we love the room amenities. Ample of parking space and it's free.

The front desk was very nice when we checked in, It took less than 10 minute during check in procedure. The hotel also have fitness room, heated pool and manager evening reception which includes hot dogs, tea/ coffee, sodas and snacks. Also continental breakfast is free. They have variety of selection, such as, waffle, yogurt, fruits, bagles, toasts, cereals, coffee, tea, juices, soda. I like waffles!

Overall, I will definitely stay here again. It is super nice hotel and located in downtown Lompoc. I have stayed in so many hotels in the U.S, so far I am very impressed with Comfort Inn & Suite! Well done * 5 STARS *

Nice place to stay with amazing accommodations (Breakfest and souper room). Pool and Jacuzy.

Had a good stay. Only problem, NO #$%? WIFI. OK, their is a modem in the room, but you have I had to call AT&T support to make it work (I'm a network technician) and also I had to go to the front desk to get a network cable.

Other than that, nothing to say, I had a GREAT STAY.

We stayed here for the unfortunate occasion of my mother's funeral. We stayed with three teenage and young adult children in a room with 2 queens. The bedding was above average, and the room was large enough for one of the boys to sleep on an airobed on the floor. the fridge and microwave came in handy, and the breakfast was just right -- something for everyone. Also, the beverage service in the evening was very nice -- enough for a light dinner, actually.

We didn't use the pool (too cold), but it was clean and warm. The fitness room was pretty small, but we used it each day, and all the equipment was in good condition with plenty of clean towels, and bottled water dispenser.

All in all, I would definitely stay here again. I doesn't get better in Lompoc, and the price was right.

I spent the evening doing laundry in a secured laundry room (needed room key to access) while my husband enjoyed the comfortable bed, watching tv. There was a public computer room with several computers that was handy off the lobby and the breakfast was adequate to sustain us after we checked out and traveled to Heart Castle, which was just down the road. The rate was reasonable and we found no fault with our stay-very comfortable and clean, even the laundry room

My husband and I stayed here on 28/05/09, we were travelling with a coach party touring western America. We arrived at 1800h, so didn't wake anyone up!!! We were both very impressed with the standard of the accommodation. Although I think we were in the part that has been upgraded. Comfy beds, crisp bed linen, flat screen TV, clean and modern bathroom and vanity area. There were 4 computers for the use of guests, with no charge for printing. Also there was a social hour in the evening, and an excellent breakfast served in the morning (the best we had had in 2 weeks of touring!). Would recommend.
