The central coast has become my second home. When I am visiting any part of the central coast I always stay at The Historic Santa Maria Inn. Being a sales professional I always tell my clients there are three things you need to rank on importance when making a decision, they are (In My Order) SERVICE COVERAGE PRICE I use...

I have been visiting Santa Maria for several years to attend an annual car show. After staying at several different hotels in town. I had an opportunity to stay at Santa Maria Inn.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our getaway at the Santa Maria Inn. We stayed in the Charlie Chaplin room, which had a delightful patio next to a fountain and garden area. The restaurant dinner was delicious and the service was wonderful. We will definitely return here.

Do not ever come here; do not waste your time and money. The staff are rude, unexperienced and money hungry.

The Inn was being renovated during the time of our stay. It appears that there are two sections a newer part and the original older part. I occasionally look for places that might be haunted and I saw a story that this place has possibly two rooms that might just be haunted. I asked for one and got room 210....

We didn't have a problem with the room, but the lobby, bar, and restaurants are starting to look shabby and old. This hotel is in desperate need of a face lift. The room however was fine, the bed was comfortable, and it was nice and quiet.

The historic Santa Maria Inn is nearly 100 years old but the rooms are clean and up to date with contemporary amenities. I like the tower end with bay windows.
