San Diego, California
Reviewed 20 July 2015

The hotel is old with a ton of potential. It needs complete renovation. The bed was clean & comfortable, but that's it. The hotel smells. It's beat up & dirty. My wife & I were very disappointed & will not return.

Moreno Valley, California

I stay here monthly for business and will continue to do so, are there a few things that could be upgraded, yes but when I come in here its the welcoming feeling I get with the friendly staff and historic atmosphere that keeps me coming back. Modern does not always equal better.

I've been coming to this area for the past several years, and this was one of the most enjoyable stays I've had in this area. Hotel amenities were great, staff took care of all my needs (I am handicapped) Any problem I encountered due to my handicap, they were very quick to resolve successfully.

I had to stay in Santa Maria for a night for business and brought my husband along. Okay, this is an odd place. Historical, as it's just about 100 years old. We stayed in the "new" wing which isn't that new, but the room was very spacious, we had a corner "suite" and the bathroom and dressing area had two...

This is an old hotel with a lot of historical value. The staff was very nice and helpful. Walking into the lobby area is like stepping into another era, well maintained and charming. It seemed like we had to walk this endless maze of hallways to get to our room, which felt like a short car ride from the elevator...

Thank you for taking your time to share about your stay with us.

Reviewed 11 July 2015

The walls are thin and the hotel feels dirty (i.e., carpet, upholstery). The staff is friendly, but I didn't feel that management did enough to make sure I was satisfied with the solution to my problem that I raised (woken up twice by people above me); I was only offered to change rooms, but I would have expected to have...

This was a stopover on the way to San Francisco. Entering the foyer was like stepping back in time. The hotel boasts a lot of history and the decor is in keeping with this - very quaint and olde-worlde. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Unfortunately we did not have time to explore the many amenities the hotel offers. The...

We had a very relaxing stay at this historic hotel. Very interesting historical facts about the inn available to guests. Our room was in the newer tower and was quite nice with traditional furnishings. When we go back to Santa Maria, we will be staying there again.
