Very nice hotel with thin walls. The last day I had a family that was very loud next to me.

Good stay and very easy to access. I was only there one night but it the desk host was quick, helpful and efficient. The room was very clean and everything worked as expected. It is also quiet with good insulation.

All that glitters is not always gold

Pros: The buffet
Cons: See above review
Location: The location was close to the HI way and very nice on the outside, as far as doing anything in town we just wanted to get away and relax.
When we arrived the Hotel was very nice on the outside but once in the room and after laying on the bed for only 10 minutes are so it was obvious the mattress was somewhat aged because it was very lumpy ? I guess no one was aware of the fact that a mattress would last longer and be more comfortable when it is rotated and flipped over from time to time ? The following morning I went down to get a mocha coffee extra strong in the hotel lobby but received the equivalent of flavored hot water. But I did also enjoy some biscuits and gravy that was some of the best I have ever enjoyed. I was told the restaurant next door provided the food that was being served. I will give the Best Western in Santa Maria another chance and hope the next room will be furnished with a better bed. Most people may never have been disappointed but after having 3 back surgeries a lumpy bed is never conducive for having a good nights sleep.

Rodeo End of The Week Stay

Pros: The beds were so comfortable, slept well the first night which is not usually the case. It usually takes a couple of nights to get used to the bed.
Cons: We are quite picky and I can honestly say the management and staff have thought of every detail to make their clients stay wonderful. Will recommend.
We were delighted with our stay at the Best Western in Santa Maria. We loved the mattress', sheets and pillows. Pillows were clean (sometimes when you look inside the pillowcase in some hotels or cruise ships the pillows are so dirty and stained you don't want to use them) not the case in Santa Maria. The hotel was very clean and quiet and well kept. The continual breakfast was perfect. All the staff were so polite and helpful. A little side note: The manager came out several times to greet the guests and incoming guests. She even shared her story of how she was chosen as 2015 Miss Wrangler for the Elks Rodeo. We lived in Santa Maria from 1958-1968 and are surprised every time we come at how much the town has grown. We come to Santa Maria often to help my sister who lives at Merrill Gardens Sr. Living. We have stayed at other hotels which were nice too but Best Western is now our first choice. Thank you for helping us to have a very relaxing time.
