“A Nice Hotel for 1 night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

We arrived at this hotel very late. We got a very big room with 2 double beds and a kitchenette. Huge bathroom. Excellent if you are more then 3 people sharing the room. The only thing is that the room is not the best for noise isolation. For us, we needed a room for the 3 of us for 1 night. It was perfect!

Room Tip: Very large rooms with a kitchette

I am big on cleanliness and this hotel was right on. Came to Pismo but knew the good hotels in Pismo would be ridiculously priced so we stayed here. Loved the kitchenette. It was a great hideout. The freeway nearby didnt bother us too much since the AC kicked in regularly. Would definitely stay here again.

The front desk clerk upon check in seemed less than enthusiastic about greeting anyone. I stayed on the forth floor which has an awful odor in the hallway. Of course, the carpet appeared to be over twenty years old. The room however, was clean and roomy with the kitchenette included. The bedroom TV was fuzzy the entire stay. Good thing the one in the sitting area was clear. The room came with a balcony. It would have been nice to have something to sit on. No chairs on the balcony??? The room service was very good and the restaurant was superb. There is also lots of construction going on, so the pool was closed. My overall stay was OK. I did like the convenience of a refrigerator and microwave. Oh, all the ice machines were out of service except on the second floor. Holiday Inn could really update this location badly since Fairfield is located right next door now.

I assure you the feedback of our hotel will be reviewed and most certainly forwarded to the appropriate departments. We take the confidence our guests place in us very seriously and work diligently to rectify any unsatisfactory experiences.

This is a very spacious Holiday Inn, the lobby is nice and open, clean rooms with good linens. The rooms are huge and have a small kitchen with refrigerator, microwave and stovetop. The breakfast was very good in the morning and the staff very friendly and efficient. It's located on the north end of Santa Maria and only 20 minutes from San Luis Obispo which is much more expensive and sold out much of the time. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was a great stepping off point for the area wineries, Pismo Beach (15 minutes away) and Hearst Castle is only an hour from here.

As I write this can't sleep because of highway noise, sound proof windows?
Beds and pillows uncomfortable.
Hairs in the bathroom, GROSS!
Could not get by sofa sleeper to go to the bathroom, STUPID!
Do not believe the other reviews.
I would of rather sleepers in my car and saved the $.

I visited this in Nov 2011 , and its a very clean and tidy and up to the mark hotel. The front staff was courteous and the checking process was nice. It is a kinda studio appartment wuth a kitchenette attached. Very clean bathroom and linen and nice toiletries, and it wasn't expensive at all!! I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Mostly all are good , but the poolside has a good view!
