There may be better deals in the area, in terms of lower prices, but this is the real deal. Such a clean, well appointed, well lit place. Easy to make a reservation and check in. The handicap accessibility is top notch. Comfy bed and nice shower.

This is a nice, clean hotel with large rooms. We had no problems with having dogs (the only drawback is there aren't many places to walk the dogs). We ended up going around the block behind the hotel for their constitutionals. There is a restaurant next door and a new Starbucks on the other side, other than that, there aren't...

We found an additional charge of 1 USD on our Credit Card and I got no idea, why they did this. It was not on our invoice and it seems a little bit shady to me to get charged with 1 USD... If they do this with all customers... ?! The room was clean, but you will hear each step...

Sorry for the confusion on the credit card. The dollar you see on your statement is an authorisation validating the card. You will see the amount drop off. We hope all other aspects of your stay were pleasant.

Lovely, lovely hotel with a wonderful staff. Spacious room and very quite location. Would recommend it to all that travel through Santa Maria for Business or Pleasure. Check out the amazing Lobby and you will see that this is no ordinary Best Western.

Prefer Plus America BW to even the regular BW; why, the breakfast setup and menu is just the right size, variety and available and fresh. The comfort of the bed are like home; slept like a infant. The availability of the PCs in the lobby, along with ability to make copies and send fax without an extra charge is welcomed.

This hotel definitely has a few years on it but the room was clean and smelled good. A few problems, closet door wouldn't slide, bathroom fan didn't work but we reported them to the front desk when we left. I believe they will take care of it. Just grabbed a bagel from the breakfast area but it was well stocked...
