Booked at an excellent rate, the stay was perfect in every way. Two nice ladies, Diana and Amanda checked me in offering me a courtyard room in this little eclectic area upstairs! Room was perfect, bed amazing, a wonderful stay from check-in, overnight, breakfast, working in the lobby with a beautiful fireplace, to check-out. The Santa Maria Inn understands excellence...

Enjoyed our stay at this historic hotel. We had a room in the "tower," which had been renovated. Clean, comfortable with nice touches in the bathroom (fan folds in bath and facial tissue, towels). In walking distance to shopping mall and restaurants, 2 minute drive to supermarket (Vons), and a 4 minute drive to Highway 101. There's lots of parking...

This was a last minute trip that we decided to take to Solvang. We did not know that weekend there was going to be a food festival happening that week and the only hotels still available was outside of the town. Santa Maria was about 30min from Solvang and that much closer back to the bay area. Nice hotel, half...

Our tower room was spacious and bright and several of our family members and friends came also. The food was delicious both in the Garden room and the Kent room Which we reserved for thirty guests to eat and visit after the funeral.

I stayed for business in the garden area; I think it's the older part of the hotel. My room was inexpensive but you get what you pay for. The entire hotel had a very musty and while you can tell they've tried to make modern upgrades, certain things were still pretty grimy/grungy (the walls of the room, caulking in the...

We arrived in the worst rain storm in years. Yikes! The staff was funny and friendly. the lobby was old wood (Think Irish Bar) we had booked weeks in advance for a friends birthday bash and this Santa Maria Inn delivered.

Have never stayed in Santa Maria before; great first visit at this charming old hotel. We stayed in the old inn side and the room was beautifully updated. The king bed was very comfortable and so were the pillows. I've stayed in old hotels before and the rooms weren't quiet, but this hotel room was very quiet. Reasonably priced and...

I stay at the Santa Maria Inn four times a year for business. I absolutely love the property. And I also love the history of the hotel. I have never stayed in the new section though. I have always stayed in the original hotel. They always take care of my room request. For the most part. During peak season sometimes...

If you like making memories when you are going on vacation, the Santa Maria Inn is a great place to start. Sure, you can stay at a Travelodge or Four Seasons but, do you remember what the rooms look like in those places? The courtyards, the windows? I doubt it. This place is chock full of Santa Maria history. We...

My daughter enjoyed her 17th birthday with a few friends that we invited to sleep over. The Inn was very helpful and helped us celebrate her birthday by being very friendly and ask us if there was anything they could assist us with.
