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...

We stopped in Santa Maria for one night on our drive up the coast and it was fantastic. The room was spacious, clean and of high quality. The staff were friendly and helpful, the included breakfast was great and parking was included. Would definitely stay again.
