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.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 March 2017

My image of Best Western was apparently dated or limited, because this was possibly the nicest experience I've had staying in a motel. We had two rooms for our family of four, and everyone found the rooms comfortable, well lit, and well-appointed. One other review recently mentioned the shower, and yes, it was very good. I always worry about noise,...

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...

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.

About 30 minute drive to Cal Poly for their open house for our daughter, happily surprised with a room with a closing door within the room for a total of two beds. Great breakfast, clean, friendly. Easy on and off for the freeway, good restaurants around.

We went without much planning due to an unforeseen night in Santa Maria and were pleased we chose this hotel. It is unassuming from the street, but we had a nice room with a good bed and the biggest, most well appointed bathroom we've ever seen at a BW property. Didn't use any facilities or eat the breakfast, so can't...

The "plus" in the Best Western logo for this motel is well earned. The room was quiet, the desk staff was friendly, and the lobby was attractive. If we're ever in the area again, we'll stay there. We also recommend the North China restaurant.
