I really enjoyed staying in this hotel. The room was nice and clean and had comfortable beds. We enjoyed the free breakfast in the morning. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

Dear Sonia S,

Thank you for such a positive review!

We are happy to hear that you really enjoyed your stay!
You are correct, the beds are definitely comfortable! All of our rooms are large and spacious, and currently being remodeled and renovated, adding hardwood floors and new appliances.

Hopefully you were able to enjoy some of the amenities besides breakfast as well, such as our pool and Jacuzzi located in our large courtyard area, surrounded by palm trees and tropical flowers. There's also a swing by the pool to relax on while enjoying some sun.

We look forward to seeing you again, hopefully soon!
Thank you for choosing The Travelodge in Santa Maria!

I find it tremendously odd that many of the reviews rave about this place, and I found it dreary and disjointed. Clearly they are in the middle of renovations, but either rent a room that is completely renovated or not and charge accordingly.

The carpet in our room had seen better days, probably in 1986. There were stains and remnants of when this was a smoking hotel and the room had a stale smell to it. Our allergies returned with a vengeance.

The safe, despite the contrary according to their website, did not work. When I inquired to the front desk, they said something to the effect of their contract lapsed with the safe company...huh? The bathroom was renovated (check under the sink, it is hilarious) but the crown molding had gaps. The bed was harder than a plank. Toiletries consisted of a bar of soap (1) and a shampoo.

And although the breakfast room is expansive, the selection is paltry. Why even call it a breakfast? Just call it what it is...grab and go snacks. Mini pastries, muffins and bundt cakes with a side of sugar overload (from what looked like a Costco container), some sad oranges, and really weak coffee rounded out the "selection" (and I use the term loosely). There were pancakes one can make from a machine. But where were the bagels and oatmeal? We paid $80 for the night, and personally I think that was $40 too much.

P.S. Although this is billed as a primarily non-smoking hotel, your neighbors will smoke in front of their room and yours. Don't open the windows in the front.

All in all, my fellow TripAdvisor travelers steered us wrong on this one. Won't be back.

Room Tip: Don't stay in room 234 as it is not fully renovated

My sister and I as well as my brother and his family stayed at at the Travelodge over the weekend of our father's memorial service. I requested second floor rooms next to each other, if possible. Those were available for us and, as the room was ready, my brother and family were allowed to check in early. It made getting cleaned up for the service, after their long trip, so much easier than just using our room, which is what we had planned on. The rooms were clean and not cramped. (Our rooms held 2 queen-sized beds) Breakfast fine and started at 6am instead of the usual 7am which allowed for more leisurely eating in our case. Our younger family members enjoyed the hot tub and even the pool, though it was a little chill. It was December after all. The staff was very pleasant and seemed to genuinely what to accommodate us, where they could. We would happily chose to stay at this Traveloldge again.
