santa Maria

The rooms were clean, large and set up nicely. Breakfast was good with a variety of offerings. However, the hotel let a cat have free roam inside. The cat was in the dining area and lobby. Hotel personnel picked it up and thought nothing of walking around with it. I am allergic to cats, so this was a very troubling issue.

Jocko's. If you like steak this is the place for you. You will need a reservation and just know you are going there for the steak, not the ambiance, decor or speedy service. If your a party of 2 I would request not to be seated in the back hallway

Will come back

Excellent for this price. Very large room, huge bathroom with separate areas - even a counter with a makeup light! First decent bed we have found in Santa Maria. AND they allow pets! The staff was very nice, friendly. Will be come back here.

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.

Location

This hotel location was listed as Santa Barbara,when in fact it was one hour drive by car to get to Santa Barbara. Very misleading and annoying .

Nice layover on the 101

Very clean and well run hotel with an above average breakfast for this level of hotel. The area is a little less than desirable but it is very close to the 101 freeway and very comfortable for the price.

Drive & spend some time in Los Almos. Great places to eat or taste wine. Beautiful church & a fantastic garden centre. Much more authentic than Solvang.

Scary

Arrived about 6pm and the night staff just gave me the room card, didn't say anything. We needed to eat so we looked at the menu in the room and walked next door. Empty restaurant but we went in. Food was cold, yes, cold chile relleno, terrible. Motel needed to update the atmosphere and welcome. It was scary. Pool was close, spa covered. Really felt like I paid too much (on-line) and no one cared that we were there.
