While the staff was cordial, some rooms needed updating and general maintenance. The first room I was in smelled dank and dingy. When I washed my hands, the water ran out of the pipe below, onto the floor. The staff promptly promptly relocated me in a recently remodeled room. In the morning I found that the new coffee maker did...

We were only there one night, but everything worked. Well, one exception is that the shower head is supposed to have different settings, and I couldn't change the setting from the normal spray, but that's no big deal. We paid the normal price I think, and got a big room, Room 121, which had a kitchenette in the front part...

We booked Santa Maria as it was better value than other coastal resorts. We had a hire car so were mobile. The hotel has a small clean pool ideal for cooling off after a warm day. The hotel is very close to road connections so don't expect great views though. Large rooms Laundry rooms 2 Dollars a wash. Downs :...

We stayed one night at this Holiday Inn while visiting my cousin at Vandenburg AFB. The room, a two bedroom suite w/ full kitchen, was clean and quiet. The beds were decent (though the couch bed was pretty uncomfortable). The room had a nice long porch overlooking the parking lot. BUT. The room was old. The kitchen appliances, with the...

I stop over at this hotel enroute between Palm Desert from San Jose area. Staff efficient and accommodating. Prices reasonable. Restaurant on site. Food good and reasonable. Rooms large with kitchenette facilities, including a refrigerator larger than found in most hotels. One of my favorites!

Really impressed with this hotel for the price we paid compared to others up the highway 1. The hotel was clean, plenty of parking, the room was massive and modern, bed was comfortable. Only thing I would say is avoid the breakfast in the hotel, for the price of it, you can get a much better breakfast down the road...

We are a family of 5.. three kids.. Upon check in I was asked if we wanted to include breakfast with our stay. I was super happy to hear that they offered breakfast because we had been to many hotels that didnt offer it on our vacation. I assumed it was a buffet like most hotels (that was my mistake)....

Stayed in a decent size room that was cleaner than some of the other places we've stayed whilst travelling around the west coast of the US. Pool was fine. Decent size room with a balcony. Quite enjoyed the stay. Nice staff. Happy overall.
