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.
