I stayed her during the last Thanksgiving holiday for several days. I read tht the motel had undergone an extensive makeover/refurbishing. I was very pleasantly surprised. It's not a hotel, but the decor is modern and the room was very clean! The lighting upon entering the room is soft and appealing. I spent time speaking with the owner/manager one evening, who is obviously proud of the work that he and his family have put into the motel since taking ownership. He cares very much that he has a quality product. He even showed me one special mini-suite they offer that was unusual and modern & so interesting! The signage is easy to spot, the lighting is good, the parking lot is large and clean. I highly recommend staying here for its central location, the look and feel of the room, and the pricing and value. I felt very safe as a lone traveler. The breakfast was very non-descript, but at least there was hot coffee and an apple, and there are other coffee and breakfast locations nearby. This motel was a "find"!

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.
