“MOLD ON THE FOOD”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

After finding mold on the breakfast food, I cannot say anything except that I will never stay in that Travelodge again. I have been staying there for years, generally had minor problems, but regularly had food problems.

If they are so sloppy in the food service/preperation, what else are they cutting corners on.

End of Travelodge Santa Maria for me.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel or plan on eating in a restaurant

I would like to apologize if you discovered mold on a breakfast item. We strive to exceed guests expectations on each and every stay, and I am sorry we failed when you stayed. We serve a complimentary breakfast 365 days of the year and have done so for the last 8 years. This is the first complaint we have ever reviewed of this nature.

Trip Advisor has this hotel come up if you search by pet friendly, and it looked like the perfect place, but when I went to book a room discovered that it is *not* pet friendly. No pets allowed.

I am sorry you felt the need to score us negatively when in fact you have never even stayed here. Actually, we do now accept small pets, so now you can stay here with your animal.

Thank you fellow tripadvisor members for helping me find this hidden gem of a hotel. I paid a very reasonable weekday price (travelled for business and was going to be arriving late), had a fabulous king sized bed with lots of comfy pillows, and a lovely breakfast spread first thing in the morning which included pancakes.

All in all, I was delighted with my stay, enough to write this review and recommend it to fellow travelers.

Room Tip: I had a room at the back upstairs and it was very quiet.

I stayed here two years ago on my last trip to Santa Maria. I was happy then but this time it was even better.

Some of the inprovements I have noticed since my last visit: new furniture, faster Internet service, expanded breakfast and a re-landscaped garden with exotic plants.

The price was great and service is always top notch ! Love this place.

We arrived into Santa Maria during a rather heavy rainstorm so it was a mad dash from the vehicle into the reception. The greeting was friendly and 100% helpful. For a budget price, the room exceeded our expectations. Large and clean it came complete with good sized LCD TV with HBO. A fridge,microwave,coffee maker,iron and hairdryer were also included. Added to that was continental breakfast and free Wi Fi. The outside garden, swimming pool and jacuzzi were all in immaculate condition. All in all we would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for value for money. We did go for a walk in the area and did not feel that there was any issue with safety and we can also recommend the chinese restaurant opposite.

This was the nicest motel we've stayed in for the price. We paid roughly $10/night more than Motel 6 but had free WiFi, new modern furniture, a Simmons Beauty Rest mattress, a nice waffle breakfast in a pleasant dining area with a fireplace, fridge and microwave in the room, tiled shower, and more. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room needed new carpet, especially to match the new furniture, and when we mentioned this to the front desk attendant, she said they are currently replacing all floors with wood. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised at the value and would stay there again. Great value!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a new floor.
