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.
