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... More

Stayed 2 nights and great value for the $$$. Clean room with all the necessaries. Great staff,Quentin is the greatest as well as the AM office lady! Didn't use the pool or spa as it was raining. 10 min to Jocko's and 5 minutes to Shaw's for dinner, And they have the house cat!

There is no way this place is deserving of a 3 star rating. I have stayed at other Best Western Plus hotels and this is by far the most outdated one I have stayed in. There is even a large mirror on one of the walls, which gives the appearance of a place that charges by the hour.

Pretty much what I expected. BW rewards program needs some doctoring. I do not want to add additional words to my review. However, I am adding additional words so I can get out of this screen and move on. This has become annoying and I will probably not make any other reviews in the future and, yes when I call... More

Has another separate toilet area with it's own door and the tub/shower area was nice and big. The room had a king bed that was very comfortable and also... More

Convenient location. Close to restaurants, and shopping and e.z. freeway access. The rooms are clean, modern and updated. Plenty of parking and in a safe and secure area. Walking distance to restaurants and shops too. A great value for the location.

We used this hotel as a stop over whilst traveling up the coast LAX to Napa. Averaging out milage per day we decided that Santa Maria was a suitable place to stop on our first night.

Motel basic standard. Big clean but very dated rooms. Decent TV and free wifi. Efficient but noisy air con. Ice machine a plus. Pool looked clean but didn't try. Biggest downside was the rather casual and unattentive check in male member of staff. Didn't exactly make us feel welcome.
