“Their name has changed to Solarie Inn & Suites”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

The owners bought the Rodeway and changed it to Solarie Inn & Suites. Their "thing" is that its an Environmentally friendly Inn because they have a recycling program, use LED lights all around and some other things. I was booked at a motel down the street and came back to these guys because of the environmentally friendly angle. The location was clean and did indeed have recycle bins throughout. The was no breakfast buffet though, just coffee, that was a bit disappointing. The room was super clean (a pet peeve of mine). The manager at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again, clean, quiet, safe, & central all add up to a good experience.

Room Tip: Just tell the clerk what you want.

We stayed here on the way up from San Diego to San Francisco. I called around 9PM and they woman told me they had a room available, $64.99, this was a Thursday night. All in it was around $75. The motel itself was kind of difficult to see because the sign wasn't up but we still were able to find it easily, it's just not well-marked. It's not too far from the freeway and close to retail shops. It's a motel style, doors right in the parking lot which I'm not a fan of but it is what it is! Our key card wasn't working for the room we were supposed to stay in which was really frustrating because we had to go back three times to the lobby and finally had to switch to another room. The rooms are really really nice though. Very modern, upgrades, I was more than pleasantly surprised since we were just looking for a deal and didn't care too much about amenities. Our room overall was clean but I noticed a few things that could have been cleaner. They had a mini-fridge, coffee maker - that's all I noticed because we were in and out. In the morning they have free breakfast - granola bars, cereal, juices. I would definitely stay here again. Also they told us there was no AAA discount but they were working on it.

I stayed here as a pit stop on a road trip from San Diego to San Francisco. I was so impressed with how nice the rooms were. This was an extremely affordable room, so I had pretty low expectations, but when we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are decorated sort of modernly and shiek. I'm no interior design major so I lack the vocab to describe it accurately, but it was definitely nice. It was even a little nicer than the expensive hotel I stayed at while in San Francisco. I would definitely recommend this place and will stay here again if I am ever in the area. The service here is great too. Kevin was wonderful!

Hotel was upgraded and very comfortable. We stayed in the back so we would not hear street noise.

It's one thing to claim you are environmentally friendly. It's another to prove it in everything you do. The Solaire Inn and Suites, the first entirely eco-friendly hotel in the Santa Maria California Region, does just that.Water is our most precious resource. Low flush toilets and low flow showerheads were installed in every guest room at the Solaire Inn and Suites. Our low flush toilets save over half a gallon of water with each flush compared to regular toilets. Native and drought landscape around the hotel also helps reduce water use.We believe that every bit helps, no matter how big or small. We make it easy for guests to recycle and conserve resources when they stay at Solaire inn & Suites. Recycle bins are located in every guest room and throughout the property. Complimentary newspapers are available in the lobby rather than delivered to every guest room, and guests are encouraged to re-use their bath towel.This summer, 100 LED lighting will be in place. In addition, we will also be offering an Electric Car Charging Station. The Solaire inn & Suites® hotel is conveniently located near several area attractions and local points of interest. Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts theater, the Santa Maria Speedway, the Santa Maria Public Airport, Vandenburg Air Force Base and The Natural History Museum are all just minutes away from this Santa Maria, CA hotel.
