“It's an interesting place! Ask for a Runway room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

This is a great hotel for those traveling the Central California Coast, close to Los Olivos and Solvang or Pismo Beach (where you can drive your car on the beach).
The rooms are outdated, I had a long black hair in the bed when I pulled back the sheets, not great.
The bathroom was clean but I don't really like that on top of the toilet there's a paper bag with a large 'sanitary bag' sitting there, I haven't seen those in years, and if you are going to provide them, maybe put it in the drawer.
Now, we had requested a one bedroom, and when we checked in were given one facing the parking lot, we called down and asked if we could have one facing the runway and were switched to a 2nd floor corner overlooking the runway, it was unique, and really nice to sit out on the deck in the morning watching planes land, loved it.
The staff at this hotel were great, and the lobby is really open and a nice breakfast area.
I'd stay again, I just wish they could update the living area/couch and make the bathrooms a bit nicer.

Thank you for sharing your review. I apologize for the inconvenience of having to switch rooms, I am glad we were able to find a solution and upgrade you to a corner suite.
The airplanes are fun to watch and the patio is great for just sitting and relaxing especially on a warm day! In addition to the beautiful beaches nearby and we have many gorgeous wineries around the area that offer tours and discounts. We hope will be able to stay with us again soon and enjoy some of the wonderful places the Central Coast has to offer. Please like us on facebook to receive updates and information about our hotel.

While visiting family, we stayed in the Radisson. First time even though we've seen the place for years. It was a pleasant stay. Clean room and comfortable bed. We booked a corner suite so there was room for our daughter on a pull out and we also brought our dog.

This was over the Independence Day holiday, so few business travellers. A good number of tour buses stopped in as Santa Maria is something of a stopover between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The airport location makes adds an interesting touch, even though its a small regional airport.

Room Tip: The large atrium might be noisy for a room that opens on it.

The hotel was great! I was there for my daughters youth conference and the staff was awesome! They met all of our needs! The Vintner's restaurant was great. I had the Rib Eye steak with grilled mushrooms and onions and it was perfect! Our room was fresh and clean and having the free bottles of water in the room was really nice too. Thank you Santa Maria Radisson, I will definitely be back for another visit!

Room Tip: We had a view of the front of the hotel and it was very quiet! It is next to a hotel, but we never h...

We stayed here while visiting our daughter, who lives in Santa Maria. They have ample parking, great customer service. The room was very nice sized and very comfortable. The bathroom was nice as well. We had breakfast at the hotel, it was so neat to watch the airplanes while dining. We had our dog with and the hotel was very pet friendly. All and all, I would stay there again.

The hotel was more than my husband and expected. Great 1/2 way stop between Northern and Southern California. The hotel was in great shape, clean, and had all of the amenities that I needed.. Location was a little off the freeway, but was convenient to get to and park. We got a great rate. WE would give this hotel a higher star rating.

The Radisson Santa Maria is conveniently located by the airport. There was no breakfast included which was a disappointment. The room was dated and rather dark, but adequate. For a one night stay, it was appropriate, and reasonably priced.

We stayed in this hotel just for one night during our USA holiday. It turned to be a very good stopover between LA and SF. Breakfast was plentiful, rooms are large and well maintained. Staff was attentive and helpful. Recommend!
