The beds were wonderful. We had 2 connecting rooms and everyone had a great nights sleep. Plenty of towels for the bath and enjoying the hot tub. The breakfast waffles were wonderful with hard boiled eggs available for protein. Just don't eat the cookies served in the evening.

Dated and smelly rooms, poor service (arrived at 9 pm with two young sleepy children and had problem with door lock, were offered a full refund instead of any help). Very disappointing. Good breakfast with waffles, cooked eggs and cereal and yogurt.

Best Best Western on 101 between Los Angeles and San Jose. Santa Maria location just south of Pismo Beach a sleeper. Everything in this hotel is first rate. Have stayed at most of the other BW's along the 101 and this is really the best one.

Your own website ad for Santa Maria PLUS Big America offered a full, complete breakfast. It was only an express with no cooked eggs or meat, etc. That is why we paid more and went with this hotel as we were there for 3 nites. Carpets were very dirty in room and sink backed up. Very noisy from street. Would...

we have stayed at best western in the past for family outings. i travel for company work. they don't usually put us in best western and use others because of price. i'm going to ask if we can use the best western for rooms when away for business. i feel secure, and the rooms are much nicer and cleaner.

Several other reviewers have used "dated" to describe this property. It's an appropriate term. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall the grounds were clean and well kept, though the area in which this Best Western is located is several blocks away from the newer shopping areas. The bed (a king) was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. But, the...

Stayed here last Thursday night. I'm shocked at so many good reviews; I was at a different hotel. My room had a bad smell, dirty bathroom, very mish-mash outdated decor, threadbare sheets, and uneven floors. Perhaps some of the rooms positively evaluated here have been recently updated, but then why am I paying the same price for a lesser quality...

We stayed in a Best Western in city of Santa Maria, Ca. The room was decorated nicely. Had little frig, coffee maker & microwave oven! All these items were positioned efficiently. The best part for me, since i traveled with my adult son & daughter, was the bathroom. There was a separate door to the toilet! YES! The tub, sink...
