Checked into our room and we were upgraded to a junior suite for our 30th anniversary. Mother's Day weekend so the Inn was very busy. Fun time in the Wine Cellar and Martini Bar followed by a very nice dinner in the Garden Room. The staff was very attentive and gracious. We will definitely return.

This is such a beautiful and historic Inn. We stay once a month for a quick trip to the coast and the staff never disappoints in making us feel at home. A must have is the beautiful setting of the breakfast area. We love to eat out on the back patio! Most amazing pool area for the family and kids...

In transit from our daughter's house near S.F. to our home in Huntington Beach, we though we would stop here for two nights on a Groupon $99.00/night deal. This was so worth it. Built in 1907 as I recall, this was in its heyday a fantastic mid-way point to stop if you were traveling from Northern California to Southern California....

The overall food selection and presentation was spectacular. A large variety items to choose.. seafood bar, omelette bar, carving stations and a dessert room..the bottomless mimosas were fabulous. The Easter decorations were carried out in every room of the restaurant. The draw back for a s was how close the tables were to one another. I understand they were trying...

The Santa Maria Inn is a classy place with an amazing history, being temporary "home" to numerous stars and celebrities. While I've not had the pleasure to be an overnight guest, I've dined here many times (fantastic restaurant!!!) and have used the facilities to host several reunions. The staff are amazing, doing everything in their power to make each event...

We stayed for one night here on our way from Carmel to LA and we found it to be a good value, fairly priced place. Yes it is old, but everything works well and the pool area and surrounding gardens are especially nice - the staff were very friendly and helpful, and we all slept extremely well in the beds,...
