Be sure to pay the extra for the suite. The breakfast is a full breakfast. The staff were very nice. Exceptional quality. This is located among other more expensive lodging but most definitely delivers what you would expect from more expensive hotels.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 April 2017 via mobile

We stayed here on a road trip to LA. The hotel was clean, rooms were large and very comfortable. Edgar at the front desk could not do enough to help us. There is a restaurant within the grounds (but not owned by hotel) where we had a great dinner. Breakfast and parking are provided free by hotel.

Bed was not that much comfortable. Food was very good, that's the best part of stay... Front seat people was very nice. Enjoyed stay. Bathroom was clean. More space. Pool was still under construction.

Facilities are new and well kept (pool and hot tub was under construction but looked close to being finished) . Rooms were clean and comfortable. Excellent service. And the breakfast was the best my wife have had at a Best Western.

Very nice staff, professional and efficient. Staff tries to keep the motel as quiet and safe as possible. Pleasant, comfortable and non-smoking rooms. Will stay at this motel any time I am in the area.

This motel provided the best breakfast on our tour which was included in the negotiated accommodation costs. Very good beds and a nice quiet room with automatic air conditioning was satisfying our needs for calming down. Unfortunately the pool was closed for construction. This is a very nice place to be in Santa Maria.

Pros: Terrific breakfast! Clean room, nice staff. Cons: The map of the U.S. at checkin is a neat idea, but it is probably the worst (as in least accurate) map/picture of the U.S. I have ever seen.

A really nice and simple stay on our way south. Nothing really stands out in terms of quality or presentation, but more importantly nothing was wrong. The room was spacious, and the breakfast was decent enough to have us on our way well quickly in the morning.

Convenient, cozy location that is well maintained with lovely staff. We were there to visit family and had two room next to each other. We always stay at Best Western and this is one of the nicest facilities.

On our road trip from San Fran to LA this was our stop and the beds were the most comfortable of the 3 hotels we stopped in during our tour of Arizona and California. Not much to do in the area but the rooms were great - just a shame we stopped one night though the breakfast did not live...
