We stayed at this Fairfield on our way to Los Angeles.

It is a nice clean economy hotel where the staff were friendly.

If you are going to stay here, be smart and ask for the quiet side of the hotel which faces the front.

Not too many modern selections in Santa Maria. One can not beat the weather, though, especially in the summer. A piece of advice would be to bring a light sweater. The evenings can be on the cool side. The Fairfield is a more than adequate property to stay at when in Santa Maria. Modern amenities. Complimentary breakfast is always a plus. Free WiFi. Rooms are clean. Parking is free. Accessible to the local eateries and shopping. Staff are nice and accomodating. Woud definitely stay here again.

Santa Maria is a half-way point from LA to San Francisco and 15-minutes from the Pismo Beach Pier. So there are many hotel options. This hotel is at the upper-end of the chain motels and is nice.

4-story secure building with lots of free parking, free ice machine, a small indoor pool/whirlpool, micro gym, and free breakfast. Breakfast has hot oatmeal, eggs, sausage, cereals, bread/bagels, drinks and make your own waffle.

It's a pretty good free breakfast for the cost of the room. Lobby has a couple free internet computers and tourist brochures. The place feels fresh, friendly, safe, and clean.

You do need a car to eat since there no on-site restaurant. Fast food, Mexican, and some local restaurants around but you should research where you're going to eat before arriving. Once you arrive, it's a bit hard to figure out where the restaurants are and which one might be good.

Room Tip: Room facing the parking lot (front) are quiet.

The front lobby staff were super friendly. They helped guide us on where to eat and even receive discounts. There were many restaurants and a Wal-Mart within walking distance. Located right off the interstate. I'm always impressed by Marriott's comfort in regard to the room and bed. The breakfast was great and included with the stay. Even the fitness center provided a wide range of dumbbells, benches, treadmills, and ellipticals for use. Only about an hour from Panama City Beach.

Enjoyed our stay over a holiday weekend. Staff was friendly and the room was ready when we arrived. Hotel is convenient to Pismo Beach (about 30 minutes), Buellton (15 minutes), and Santa Barbara (75 minutes).
