Great place to stay! No complains whatsoever. The rooms were huge and spacious. The beds were large and comfortable too. Very nicely decorated and the kitchenette was also very convenient. The staff was also very friendly and have plenty of recommendations of what to do in the area.

I stayed here over a weekend in September and can't say enough about the staff. I travel a lot for business and love finding a place with great customer service. I would recommend this place to anyone who finds themselves in Santa Maria. Malcolm at the front desk is especially helpful. The rooms are spacious with nice balconies and kitchenettes.

We needed a hotel near Pismo Beach, and the hotels closer to Pismo were fully booked. And because we have a baby, we preferred to book a suite so we could actually enjoy the evening in a separate part of the hotel room without shutting down all the lights for the baby. Here are the positives: 1. Readers will be...

I have not faced any single issue during the stay though my stay was only for 1 night. We are four people and had huge room sharing. I would stay again. Kids eat free breakfast. Plenty of parking. Service at the counter was good.

I booked a few rooms here for a work retreat. Why a work retreat in Santa Maria? Pretty much it was just to have dinner at Jocko's in Nipomo. The rooms were nice and large, with a kitchenette. The location is close to the freeway, good parking, clean and comfortable. I've stayed here a few times and it's always been...

The room we received was quite large and spacious; conveniently located on the 1st floor with the pool close by. The restaurant is just OK but there are lots of eating establishments in the area so it is probably better to eat out anyway. The staff was pleasant.

This hotel is located on the north end of town and has easy access to Hwy 101. The hotel dedicates the ground floor to customers traveling with dogs and their fee for having a dog is only $15.

This hotel is like any other good hotel, nothing good, nothing bad. We only stayed for one night because it was a stop on our road trip to LA. Our first room smelled of smoke although this is supposedly a some-free hotel, so we had to switch. Overall this is a quite nice hotel.
