If a modern hotel is your style you might want to stay here for a different experience and perspective. The twists and turns of hallways with the thoughts of historic figures that may have traveled the same paths, courtyard getaway are just a few of the unique treasures you will find.

This hotel is 100 years old and very charming! We loved our stay there. Great pub downstairs! 1/2 hour drive on the 101 to San Luis Obispo. Walking distance to a DELICIOUS steakhouse across the street and Santa Maria's mall. Affordable and clean!

It may be a historic hotel but it would be nice to have a newer carpeting in the room, have a heater that does not make noise, pedestal sink that is better secured to the wall, and a few other matters that could be reasonably easy to update. For some very odd reason, there was a half dozen of square...

We like to stay at the Santa Maria Inn every time we are in Santa Maria. The rooms are always comfortable and clean. The beds are very comfortable too. We stayed in a large suite with a fireplace this time and it was like being at my house. It had a kitchen, dinning room, living room with fireplace and a...

We may have been punished for booking online. We were given the oldest and smellest most distant room in the inn. We wanted to take a shower in the morning and there was no hot water. Call the front desk and they said they would take care of it and would call us. When it was time to check out...

A quaint old hotel with added atmosphere! I stayed in the Mary Pickford room. Some rooms are named after famous people that have stayed at the Inn. Rooms are old fashioned in style with amenities of a queen or king size bed, refrigerator, TV. etc. The bathrooms are typical tub, shower, toilet. Not much counter space where the sink is...

What a treat. We needed a place to stay and my husband surprised me with a one night stay at the Santa Maria Inn. Normally on a road trip we stop overnight at Best Western or it's equivalent. The Santa Maria Inn is over 100 yrs old and while the rooms are not the most up to date they are...

We were on a road trip for 3 weeks in the western USA, and this was one of the best hotels we stayed at. We had some bad experiences from some dirty motels the days before. The 5th night on our journey we drove for so many hours, it was dark outside, we were tierd, and we found this hotel...

We've stayed at the Santa Maria Inn frequently when visiting family in the area. This trip was over new years. Usually we stay in the historic part of the hotel-think early 1900's style rooms with famous people's names on the doors of rooms they stayed in. This time we opted for newer tower room since it was new years and...

Great room, food, drinks ,the room was a bargain for the price. The experience was priceless, can't be topped. The owners should be proud to have such an historic hotel.
