“A home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2011

I am a traveling nurse and stayed at Candlewood Suites in Santa Maria for two months with my boyfriend. We enjoyed our stay very much. Though there is not a pool or restaurant there is the ocean nearby and a cupboard open 24 hours with lots of snacks and 24 hour free coffee. There are also a lot of good restaurants in the surrounding area. Not a ton to do in Santa Maria but tons in the towns not too far away and the 101 freeway is less than 1/4 mile.

As far as the hotel goes it is a great place to stay if you are looking for somewhere to stay long term or maybe even just an overnight. I had the executive suite with my own bedroom, a bathroom, living room with a pull out couch, two flat screens, and a full size kitchen minus an oven. It was just what I needed and there are grocery stores in walking distance. Another plus about the hotel is there is free wireless internet, cable, and free movies for rent downstairs. Every Wednesday night they have a free food or drink night depending on the theme.
The staff is exceptional and friendly. All of the staff members went out of their way to make sure that we had an exceptional stay and were truly accomodating. Anything that we needed was taken care of promptly. I would definately return here if I needed a place to stay again.

we started our trip in San Francisco and then rented a car to drive down to San Diego. Our 2nd stop was at the Candlewood Suites in Santa Maria. I had never heard of this chain before except that they are affiliated with the Holiday Inn chain of hotels. it was with great surprise that we fell onto this hotel. the hotel has no restaurant and the room is not cleaned on a daily basis like regular hotels but it does offer very large spacious rooms fully equiped with a fridge, plates, cutlery, a mini range, a microwave and a dishwasher. the hotel itself seems quite new and the room itself is very up to date. the location of the hotel is centrally located to a shopping mall, grocery stores and restaurants. we stayed in Santa Maria only enough time to shop a little, eat, sleep and go back on the road. for people looking to save money on a hotel and have a place to buy your own food and cook, this is a great place to go to..

I really liked this hotel, the staff was friendly and gave us a few dining options. The room was decent. I liked having a kitchen available to make breakfast. We were overlooking the parking lot, not the street, so our room was quiet. Free WiFi and parking are always a plus. The location was nice because it's right off the freeway. There's nothing fantastic about this place but it is a good place to rest your head. I would stay here again.

The best room we had during our trip in California - it was king suite - everything was brand new ad spacious - full kitchen, flat TVs etc.

Stayed there for one day on a trip from SF to LA - there is no much to see in Santa Maria, but the hotel was ok for one day sleep.

The only disappointment was the fact that we were double charged for this room (initially we paid with priority points for the room and hotel manager confirmed that at check-in, but a week later the credit card was also charged for the full amount) and it took awhile for them to refund the money and I still do not have a response from their customer support about international fee refund (I have Australian credit card and every time there is a money transfer - an international fee is charged).

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way to Cambria. The room looked very new and was clean. Our only complaint was the noise. The road noise kept my husband up but I didn't notice it over the noise from the refrigerator. Add on the noise from the airconditioner and it was very hard to get a good night sleep. There is no separation between the room and the kitchenette which is why the refrigerator noise was bothersome.
