“Keep an eye on your valuables”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2010

The hotel was fine for business or leisure, the rooms are nice, but....

Unfortunately, when I checked out I forgot my NOOK (electronic reader similar to a Kindle). I immediately called that evening to see if it had been turned in, and of course, no one had seen it. I am extremely disappointed. I have found, on the most part, hotels, housekeeping, and maintenance staff to be very helpful and honest. But, not this time...

Hotel is pretty new. Very clean and staff is nice. Rooms are pretty spacious. Location is convenient because it is right off the 101, however it isn't really right by too much as far as good restaurants or areas to walk around in. Even though it is right off the freeway, traffic noise is not a problem because there are 4 window panes to block out noise. We have stayed here twice now, and will continue to stay here when we visit Santa Maria.

These guys got it right! Everything looks and feels brand new, it was so comfy we never wanted to leave. This place had all the comforts of home: mini-stove, dishwasher, microwave, LCD TV. Not to mention the very friendly and helpful staff.

Would love to come back!

We found the Candlewood clean, comfortable and adequately equipped for a short stay, with the exception of a missing corkscrew! ('in wine country????). Oh! and a teapot. Please America, cater for your British/Irish visitors. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Would stay there again.

We stayed here as an overnight stopover from LA to Paso Robles (~4 1/2hrs), where we hit the Foxen Canyon wine trail on the way up. Yes, Santa Maria isn't a destination in and of itself for many leisure travelers. However, the location just off the 101 makes it convenient, and it left us with a half-hour drive to SLO for lunch before heading to our next winery target, Paso Robles.

The hotel itself is very new, and the place was remarkably clean. Bed linens and towels were of good quality, as was the mattress. The staff both at check-in and -out were pleasant; the agent checking us in was more than happy to offer up suggestions on where to have dinner (Shaw's).

Overall--and this is coming from a couple hotel snobs--we were impressed with the hotel and would definitely recommend it to people who don't mind staying in a chain property and getting out to absorb some local flavor. And we saved so much $ relative to what we would have spent elsewhere that we looked at our wine purchases along the way as almost free! (We did stay at a $400 boutique place the following night, but the Candlewood was a great value).

Stayed here for one night on the way up to Cambria, mainly because the rates in Cambria were a bit high for Friday night. Got a great rate through Candlewood's web site, and enjoyed the value that we received from this hotel. Check in was efficient - they already had our room key made up and a folio created with my name on it. The room was very large, with a good sized bathroom, and a fully stocked kitchen - complete with paper towels, and a FULL SIZE dish washer, an ICE MAKER in the fridge (although it was off and it took a long time for it to make ice after we turned it on). The bathroom had decent water pressure and ventilation. My only complaint is the towels were VERY uncomfortable, they almost felt like sandpaper. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet, even though we were right next to the elevator. They have FREE WI FI and it was good enough for us to stream Netflix on the laptop so we could watch some movies! :)

We only stayed one night, so can't really say too much else. The hotel is located about a couple miles down the main drag from most of the restaurants in Santa Maria. We ended up eating at Shaw's Steakhouse, which I highly recommend.

Candlewood was such a wonderful surprise! We were driving up the coast and wanted to stop somewhere half way so we chose Candlewood based on the price and proximity from the freeway (literally 1/2 mi off the 101). We expected the place to be a mediocre motel but the rooms were really nice! Everything in the room was pretty modern and we even had a mini kitchen with granite countertops in both the bathroom and the kitchen! Overall we were really happy and will definitely stay here again when we go wine tasting next time in Santa Ynez or Paso Robles. Candlewood was so much nicer than the dumpy motels in Lompac and Buellton and was super cheap..our room was less than $100 and we booked the day before :)
