We were playing golf in the area, we were a large group, and this location was chosen based upon price and convenience to the course. The rooms are good sized, clean, the amenities are what you would expect of a room for about $120/night. A couple of things keep this from being a better review, first, the bathroom is spartan and shows signs of recent repair, and the in-room coffee maker did not work. The lobby is cozy and the front desk for check-in was understaffed...they were aware of our group, but only had one person do all the check-ins for 20 people. Did not eat here, but did have a coffee from their coffee bar. It was an average latte, nothing to call home about. Would I stay here again? Sure, the price/value is just about right.

Stayed here for a night while checking out the area. The hotel is a historic landmark from 1917. Most of the historic features have been "redone", but still a nice place to stay. The restaurant seemed some what deserted during dinner and was a bit pricy for what we were served.

What a beautiful hotel, decorated tastefully with wonderful character. Friendly & professional staff. Restaurant was high end, lovely fire burning as we entered, furniture Victorian epoch. Food prepared to high standard, quality ingredients freshly prepared. Knowledgeable head waiter. Breakfast excellent, healthy or unhealthy options.
Room was best we have stayed in during our 3 week tour of the states. 5 star. Location a little out of the way, but will come again, highly recommend to our friends. Can't go wrong, caters for your every whim

After a mix up with our reservations, we got to relax in a comfortable room; it was my first time staying on the older side of the hotel (I prefer to stay on the tower side) the walls are a little thin as my wife and I heard the couple in the next room in a romantic state all most all week end. The restaurant was great ,the food was tasty and priced right , the staff was very friendly and treated us very good , some staff members have been there a long time as we have stayed there for the last four or five years , we can say that the restaurant has a great menu selection , the food is very good and the price is right

Room Tip: choose the tower side , the rooms are a little bigger and a lot quieter

Stayed here using a Living Social coupon. Nice room and very good breakfast. Service was spotty in dining room but overall a nice place to spend the night. It is a historical landmark. Went across the street to sample Santa Maria beef.

This hotel surpasses expectations at every turn. We are a team of government contractors that travel to the Santa Maria area a few times a year. We will not stay anywhere else. The Santa Maria Inn is beautiful, elegant, and unpretentious. It offers, in my book, a five star experience at an incredible price. The staff at every level consistently exceeds our expectations and makes traveling for extended periods of time a pleasant experience. From housekeeping to the sales director for reservations to the dining room attendants and the front desk and house managers, they are always looking for opportunities to make our experience better. We love the clean and spacious rooms, personal attention, and how the Santa Maria Inn offers all the things one needs while traveling in one place. There is a beautiful dining room with wonderful food, a pub for after work cocktails, a lovely pool, a small coffee bar, laundry service, room service and a smile wherever you go.

Room Tip: The fourth floor offers a lovely view.
