Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

I was told there was a great 'country breakfast' place right by it, with huge amounts of good food. We didn't go there, but sounded like a place to check out.

New building with big clean rooms.

The room looks quite new. Big clean bathroom. Clean and fresh bed. Big LCD TV and free internet. Refrigerator, wet bar, and a desk! Easy access, close to Hwy 101, yet in a quiet block. Free breakfast with lots of selections, including fresh warm waffles!

Repeatedly pleasant stays over 14 months

While on business, I recently stayed here twice a month (Monday through Thursday) for 14 consecutive months. During all of my visits, the management and staff maintained a high degree of professionalism and courtesy. My room was always clean and quiet, and all towels and supplies were properly stocked. My room was nicely cleaned every day and I never had to worry about the hotel service after returning from a day of work. I also saved considerable time and money eating breakfast in the deluxe continental breakfast area. There is a wide variety of food to choose from in a pleasant surrounding. After being a guest of the hotel approximately 25 times, I feel I can comment pretty authoritatively on the hotel and its general operation, and it's very good. I've always had a pleasant experience here. The management care about their guests and I plan on staying there again later this year when my business will take me back there. If they weren't consistently good, believe me, after staying there for 14 months, I would quickly have noticed. Well done and thanks Big America! See you again in a couple of months.

Exception Stay

I've stayed before and will continue to stay. Everything is great there! I love that they are pet friendly...not the easiest thing to find when traveling. Staff is friendly, even customers seem friendly, what more can you ask for?

A few GREAT steakhouses not far away: Jocko's in Nipomo, Far Western Tavern in Guadalupe (really excellent Sunday breakfast with hot, fresh home made biscuits). Scheduled to move to Orcutt in September after 53 years in the current location. Also, try Swiss for steaks and a broader menu.
