Awesome Stay!

Posted Jul 29, 2015
Pros: Everything. Room, parking, eating, closeness to everything.
Cons: Nothing. Maybe a discount for staying so often. Thought I give it a try.
Location: Location great. We ride motorcycles. Close to wineries, restaurants, and by the ocean fun.
We have stayed here many times. We love it. To us it is just like staying in our own home. Everything about this hotel is great.

Charming hotel

Posted Jul 19, 2015
Pros: Clean rooms, comfortable beds, reasonably priced drinks and food.
The Historic Santa Maria Inn is a charming hotel. The walls are covered in art. The building is old but well-maintained, and the detail work throughout lends it a certain elegance. The staff was helpful and accommodating. We had drinks from the Tap Room and got the chocolate wedges desert from the room service menu. Our experience with both were good. The halls smell a bit smokey but the non-smoking room smelled clean and fresh. All in all, it was an enjoyable stay.

Thank you for this charming review of our property. We are so thankful to hear that you appreciated our hotel and the historic nature of it. It always makes us happy to hear that our guests were able to enjoy our different services, and it sounds like both your time in the Tap Room and with room service went well! And thank you for your insight into the hallls smelling a bit smokey, we will look into that, we want our hotel to be nothing but welcoming! We hope to see you again.

Good stopover between Monterey and LA

Posted Jul 18, 2015
Pros: Lovely wine bar with lots of great choices.
Location: We found a great breakfast place very close to the hotel. One could walk to this establishment, though we did not.
This hotel has a very old, as in historical, lobby. At first I was worried as the lobby does have a musty smell. The rest of the hotel, however was fine, with no uncomfortable odors. Despite being in a room that faced the busy Main Street, there were no intrusive street noises. The beds were comfortable and we all slept well.
