This was my first stay at this hotel in Santa Maria. I will stay their the next time I'm down that way.
The rooms where very nice, and clean. The Breakfast in the morning was more than I expected.
I was greeted professionally by the staff on check-in, and upon checking out. I'd give this a five star rating.

Room Tip: convenient to all downtown locations.

This particular Best Western was a large facility. There were no shortage of occupants which was a testimony to it's popularity here in Santa Maria, CA. I was greeted professionally and quickly. The main lobby area was large, clean, and quite frankly, kind of nice to look at.

The room was no disappointment either. It was spacious, with just the right amount of furniture. The bed was a Cal King and VERY comfortable. The bathroom was exceptionally clean with loads of mirrors and well lit. The shower head was certainly tall enough for a 6 foot tall person and did mention how clean the shower was? No disappointment. This facility also offerered a spacious breakfast eating area. With fresh coffee, waffles, fruit, cereal, and much much more. I will most certainly return here. Highly recommend staying here! My room rate was $96.00 per night.

Absolutely a wonderful hotel. From the gracious and helpful staff, to the amazing cat who greets you in the lobby, (looks very much like the lion statue there) to the very abundant breakfast - and the rooms are very nice. They were in the process of upgrading some of the rooms, so many of them are fresh and new. We were very pleased with this hotel - we were there for a sad family occasion and were very grateful for the excellent service.
I echo what Lynn W says about the bathroom - and about the waffles.

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel. In my wife and my opinion their beds are the most comfortable we have ever slept on at any hotel. They are firm but with a nice cushy top. The rooms are very clean, a nice size and well appointed.
The breakfast was good and typical for those one gets wihen they are included in the price of the stay. The breakfast hours are longer than most from 6 - 10am which we like because we usually sleep late in the mornings.
It is obvious that the manager takes great pride in his hotel and wants his guests to have an enjoyable stay.

Spent the night at this location because of it's proximity to Nipomo and Jocko's restaurant. Very pleasantly surprised by the friendly greeting, suggestions for what to see and do in Santa Maria and the other local area, and most importantly the room. We had a king bed room that was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The layout of the bathroom was great with a sink and vanity, makeup table, shower/tub combo, and a separate room for the toilet. Lighting throughout the room was good for reading.

Breakfast was included, and my husband can't wait to find other Best Western Hotels with the "make your own waffle" set up.

You get everything you would expect and more for their low price. We will stay here again in the future.

I have stayed at the BW in Santa Maria several times and each time I have been completely satisified with the hotel stay. The staff is super friendly and accomodating. The rooms are neat and clean. Their continental breakfast is simple but it is good. I would certainly recommend the BW Santa Maria.

Well can not say much. Booked via booking.com. We turned up to realise that front house at Big Western did not even have our booking! Someone forgot to check and transfer.

The Front Office member would not even offer any sort of customer service, by offering for us to use their Internet so we could check the details. No coffee or even water was offered even though he could see we had been on the road.

No doubt we promptly left and found another place to lay our head for the night:)

Room Tip: Area seemed very run down.
