“Surprised!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Based on the location of this hotel, I wasn't expecting much. We were staying originally for one night and needed to save as much as possible. My sister in law was staying too and they are very thrifty! So I looked up some hotels and the best deal was this one on Broadway in Santa Maria. The location is convenient but the street is very commercial and a little older so I was not sure how the hotel would be but the ratings were good and so was the price so we went with it. My husband and I had to stay an extra day and were happy to do so after we saw what it was like! The rooms have been remodeled and updated. The decor was current. The bed was very comfortable. There was a nice flat screen tv. I also liked that there was a desk and a table for sitting. The bathroom area had a separate area for closet, safe, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot. I did not get a picture of the rooms before we had our stuff everywhere but you can see the surrounding areas and they are very nice. The lobby and room for breakfast was very inviting. The grounds were spacious and well kept. Breakfast was great and there was a variety to choose from. We will definitely stay here again!

We really enjoyed our night at Travelodge, after a long day's drive we arrived late afternoon, from our first impression, upon arrival until check out we experienced a very pleasant stay. The staff that greeted us was excellent,
check in was fast and easy, then the quality of the rooms, very clean and smelled very nice, bed was great, safe, microwave and mini fridge,
Rooms surround a very nice (heated) pool area. We got a good night rest, to then wake up for the complimentary breakfast, Overall great stay, and of course at a great rate too!!
It was one of the best nights stay throughout our trip, highly recomended!!

Front desk was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Slept very well and bed was comfortable. Only problem was when I went to take a shower the handle to turn on the hot water was stuck. So no shower. Told front desk as I checked out. Hope the next person gets the hot water.

I loved our stay at the Travel Lodge in Santa Maria! It was so clean and beautifully decorated. The linens were spotless and smelled so good! I loved the down-like comforter and the bed and pillows were so comfy! There is a new fridge, microwave, newly decorated bathrooms, flat screen television, easy to use internet, beautiful decor and lighting. The front desk staff were so friendly and answered every question graciously. The breakfast the next morning was perfect. My husband and I stayed in one room, my grown daughter in her own room right next to us. We were overlooking a gorgeous pool with palm trees all around. There were beautiful flowers everywhere. I was seriously blown away by all the amenities. We had booked online and gotten a fabulous deal. I highly recommend staying here, I will come again!!

Room Tip: I loved staying on the second floor and looking down on the beautiful pool!

While the exterior look of this hotel is modest, the best part of being here was our room: it was crisp, clean and peaceful, decorated in designer colors, crown molding (almost never seen in a 2 star hotel) , even in the bathroom, opulent bathroom fixtures. There were rich dark wood furnishings, accessorized by tasteful artwork in deep colors framed in the same dark wood, simple white duvet covering the comfortable king bed (so glad not to see another printed quilted bedspread). There was even a large comfortable reading chair with a simple patterned upholstery that matched the 2 chairs at a small table. The stylish ceiling fan offered us a natural option to not have to use the air-conditioning or heat. Security and lighting in the room were up-to-date. The downside of the room was the fact that we could hear the footsteps of the occupant of the room above us.
The rest of the hotel is OK -- the pool looks clean and the grounds were well-cared for. The evening clerk Miraj was very kind and helpful. Suggestions to further enhance the place would be to update the trim around the exterior doors with molding and to broaden the variety of the breakfast which was heavily carbs. Add some peanut butter or cream cheese options, or some hard-boiled eggs. The fruit looked a bit overripe. Maybe put the breakfast area behind shutters since it's the first thing you see entering the lobby at the front desk, and it's not that pretty to look at, esp. with a handprinted sign saying "out of order" on one of the machines.

Overall, a good experience, we'd definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor (there are only 2 levels), so you don't hear anyone above you...
