Loved it, loved it, loved it. Stop over on a road trip from San Fran to Vegas. Arrived and the restaurant had been swamped and nearly nothing was available. But this didn’t matter, what a friendly place - never been to a more friendly place. Brett, what a personable a funny lad. He even got up in the morning when he wasn’t working to say goodbye to us - fantastic young man who as I alluded to earlier dealt with the kitchen situation which was nobody’s fault admirably . They also gave us 4 drinking tokens. A really, really good stop over.

Excellent location, facilities, staff, value. Large (for motel) wide screen Samsung TV with DirecTV, HBO etc., large clean fridge, hairdryer, microwave, coffee maker, one complimentary free drink at the bar (Friday & Saturday), excellent hot breakfast made to order (not the lame continental version). The bistro has a small bar, billiards table few large screens playing sports, decent menu (very well prepared food). The swimming pool is nice too. Amazingly good place for Lompoc. Previously we stayed in nearby Solvang in motels for double the price and miserable conditions. Location is excellent if you want to visit the Santa Ynez wine country (like us), but can't find reasonable accommodation in the valley (like us). The motel is at the boulevard which becomes highway 246 to Santa Ynez Valley - 20 min. drive. Strongly recommended.

This hotel was a great stay. Priced right, friendly, helpful staff, clean and well thought out. The bed was comfortable and I loved the recliner and desk set up. So useful. Happy hour was a nice bonus and breakfast that came with was good. All together a nice property. It looks like owners really care about making their business a success. We will definitely stay here anytime we are in the area.

The air conditioner stopped working during our first night. We asked the front desk to send maintenance while we were away the next day, but when we returned the A/C unit was still broken and appeared to be untouched. The next morning, the sink drain broke and we needed to prop it open with a nail file. By then it was Christmas day so we didn't submit a repair requests. But housekeeping came by that day, and either did not notice that the sink was broken or did not report it to anyone. When we checked out, the front desk didn't how our stay was, so we're sharing it here. This was our third stay at O'Cairns; we've had good experiences until now. Rooms are showing age, but the price is fair and everything that didn't break worked well. Will look at other hotels the next time we're in town.

It is unfortunate that your latest stay with us did not compare to your previous stays. It is always our goal to ensure that our guests have a good experience every single time, so it upsets me that our staff did not resolve or attempt to resolve your concerns. Customer satisfaction and consistency is very important to us because this is our family business, and retaining our guests is a must. If you choose to try us again, please know that we do not tolerate bad service.

Everyone was very friendly at this hotel and provided great service. They provide many extras at this hotel which help make your stay great. In the evening, you get chips for 4 free drinks at their bar. For breakfast in the morning, the waitress greeted us with a cheery good morning and took our order for breakfast: Choice of two eggs, any style or breakfast burrito or an omelet. Pick 3 side dishes: bacon, sausage, hash browns, yogurt, fresh fruit cup, pancakes, French toast, waffles, oatmeal Plus a drink (coffee, tea, juice). She served us all at our table, or you can get it to go. This is all included with the room. The room also had a full size refrigerator with an actual freezer; also a microwave, hairdryer, DVD player and two luggage racks. This is a good hotel, but not a fancy one. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The outdoor pool and whirlpool looked nice.

We recently stayed at O'Cairns for 3 weeks while my husband worked the LandSat launch. He has stayed at the O'Cairns off and on since 2006. I was lucky enough to join him this time. Now I know why he enjoys it so much. A family run business, O'Cairns Inns and Suites is truly a fabulous place to stay. Clean, comfortable beds with breakfast included and two complimentary drink tickets is great but the owners and employees, hands down, are what makes O'Cairns so very special. We were treated and felt very much like family by everyone from the front office to the restaurant. I have stayed at many hotels over the years and worked for some as well. I can honestly say you will not be disappointed if you choose O'Cairns. I highly recommend it. Hope to see everyone at O'Cairns again in 2022!

Came here during a family reunion… 80th birthday celebration… And blocked out a few rooms… Absolutely perfect place to stay… The right price point, an awesome restaurant with pub and dartboard… And friendly staff on top of all that … Five star all the way! Would definitely recommend to others as we plan to stay here ourselves in the future!

Expectations were not high as we looked for a value-priced hotel for an overnight stop in Lompoc. Found O'Cairns Inn online on another site, showing very high ratings at a price well below that of the other listed hotels. So we booked, and got one of the most pleasant hotel experiences we've had during three-plus decades of extensive travel. This family-owned hotel provided a memorable one-night stay thanks to the friendly staff at the desk, in maintenance and housekeeping, and especially in its restaurant. We were greeted pleasantly at check-in by a women who handed us two drink tickets each for the hotel's daily 5-9 pm happy hour, and explained how to order our custom breakfast for the next day. Options were plentiful: two eggs, your choice, plus any three sides, which included pancakes, a waffle, French toast, oatmeal, fruit and more. Delivered to your room at your request. After unpacking, we sauntered over to the restaurant for happy hour. There, Kelsi, daughter of the owner, and bartender Adrian, another family member, made sure our every wish was granted. Adrian turned on the fire pit for us, as the early evening chill set in. We learned that our drink coupons were good for pretty much anything in the bar. No house wine or domestic beer limits. I enjoyed a couple of Jacks and soda, while my wife was poured a local Pinot Noir that she said was the best she ever drank. We ended up buying a bottle from them to take home. As Kelsi and Adrian shared stories about the hotel and their family with us, we decided that we should stay for dinner. The menu was simple: salads, sandwiches, burgers, but the food was plentiful and delicious. The whole time, Kelsi and Adrian made sure our every need was met. Adrian rolled over a heater as the night went on to keep us comfortable in our cozy outdoor nook. Just a delightful experience. Now, this is a budget hotel. Some of the accouterments were worn or dated. But the bed was comfortable, everything was clean, and the room size was fine; bigger than some of the much-higher priced rooms we stayed in during our central coast area trip. The hotel had made sure that our booking requested items were waiting for us when we arrived. They even wrote us a personal note on our confirmation saying they were delighted to fill our requests. This is something I've never encountered from a two-to-three star hotel. Our breakfast the next morning was delivered on time and was delicious. My "side" waffle was a full-size waffle. No way could we eat everything they sent us. At checkout, we were greeted by another friendly faced woman, not a family member, whose cheerful attitude put a nice bow on what for us was a five-star experience. I don't know when or if we'll come back to Lompoc, but if we do, we know where we're going to stay. After all, according to Adrian, many of the NASA engineers choose O'Cairns for their accommodations for launches from the nearby Vandenberg AFB. Those folks are smart, so we're glad to find ourselves in such good company.
