We stopped here heading to San Diego from Monterey. It was a really nice hotel! We were on the ground floor and heard nothing from above. Kids enjoyed the pool area! The room was super cute! We had a family of 5 and thought the pullout would have been a queen (baby slept with us)...It was a twin. Luckily we had a sleeping bag with us and we made an extra bed with the cushions. Worked perfectly! Breakfast was good! A big area too so plenty of seating. The employees are super sweet too! We will stay here again if need be! P.s.....love that there was coffee, tea, and hot cocoa 24/7....
Pretty standard Fairfield Inn. Rooms are large and clean, friendly staff and easy parking. Some areas under renovations. Downside is one side of the hotel faces a busy road. Road noise is rather loud with trucks and cars going by all night. Ask for room facing the parking area instead.
Stayed at the Fairfield Inn in Santa Maria for business. I had considered more touristy places nearby like San Luis Obispo. The place was clean, affordable, convenient and offers free breakfast and parking!
Perfect for my need. Respite on wearying trip begun too late in day. Very clean & comfortable. Slept well. TV easy to operate. Desk clerk helpful to get on free wifi & very professional, yet warm. Breakfast quite sufficient. Complimentary water & chocolate bar a treat. A large pic on TV wall would reduce institutional look.
This hotel is just beginning a remodel/refresh and they were in the process of stripping wallpaper from the public areas the day we stayed. The people at reception were exceedingly friendly and welcoming. Our room was small (as Fairfield rooms can be) but there was space to squeeze in an easy chair in addition to the desk chair and that was appreciated. Due to space there was no microwave in our room but it did have a small refrigerator. Can open window for fresh air. A renovation of public areas /room refresh has just started that will include 42” TVs (right now they are 32”), new carpeting and a redo of their breakfast area. King room is small as most. Breakfast was typical Fairfield and nice. They had some hot oatmeal that was the perfect consistency along with lots of stir-ins, scrambled eggs or some little cheese omelets, bacon and veggie patties (the veggie patties were surprisingly good). They had several yogurt choices, to include greek yogurt but only one type of juice - orange. The coffee was fine. I was saddened to learn that they must throw out the end pieces (heals) of their lovely wheat bread. That is my favorite part (toasted with butter). I can understand the brand standard is to not set them out but I wish they kept them available for guests who might prefer them. Such a waste to throw them away before breakfast ends!! I learned all this when I asked if they might have a heal saved in the kitchen. I was successful with this request at a recent Fairfield Inn I stayed at in Canada but no such luck here.
I'm a loyal Marriott customer, so stayed here for a business trip. Staff is VERY friendly and helpful. Currently upgrades are in process (new carpeting, wallpaper, public areas) and everything looks super clean, but the Fairfield is the basic level of Marriott and not a lot of frills. A couple of prints on the walls could warm up the sterility of the rooms a bit. Breakfast (complimentary) is very basic, although kudos for having eggs and breakfast meats. This is my second time here (last time before the remodeling), and the driveway entrance is super weird.... drive past the building to the next street into another little street. Overall... ok.
Clean, new (I think) hotel with good choice for breakfast. This was our second time in a Fairfield. Liked the décor which was very similar to the one we stayed at previously. Located at the end of a quiet street. Hubby loves the self serve hot beverage bar with the usual complimentary choice of hot drinks and filtered water in the hotel lobby. Great touch with the complimentary cookie at check in.
We made an unexpected trip to Santa Maria for a family emergency and needed a place to stay the same day. The staff at this hotel was exceptionally accommodating, friendly, and helpful. The property is very clean and comfortable, as well as reasonably priced. Free parking, free wifi, refrigerator in the room, and breakfast included. There is no entrance directly from Broadway but two quick turns off of the main street (Roemer Way then Roemer Court), get you to the entrance. Would definitely return!
Oh my... where to start? Poor signage to tell you how to get to the front of the hotel, the smallest room I have ever stayed in at any property, let alone a Marriott, a ridiculous set-up for the bathroom and the TV and the WORST presentation of a breakfast entrée I have ever seen. The breakfast meat was a "Canadian bacon" which the breakfast attendant told me was 1) a corporate mandate and 2) very unappetizing looking as it was brown and clumped together and looked at least a week old. The other meat choice was a vegetable "sausage" patty. Otherwise, the rest was the pretty ho-hum breakfast choices with nothing really to note. Let me warn you about the rooms at this property... don't let them put you in ANY room that ends with ".18" as it is the tiniest room I have ever seen behind the elevator shaft. It should be those rooms that the front desk says "we are all sold out but one room" and you get that one. We had a reservation. It has a king bed which left about 30" on each side of the bed. The TV sat on the vanity top and was below eye level when lying on the bed and the drapes couldn't be closed completely letting in both parking lot light and the sunrise the next morning. And the mattress was about as uncomfortable as any I have slept (rather, not slept on). And don't let me start on the ridiculously large bathroom... I know now where the square footage from the sleeping area was used. I brought all this up to the manager, Holly, and she gave me a discount and the usual platitudes. But we have had a better stay at the Best Western Plus and there are more properties around locally. I doubt the issues will be resolved but now you know. I do try to find a positive and Holly was very pleasant as was the check-in staff. Good luck! It wasn't up to Marriott standards!
I stayed at this hotel on March 1st for business. The check in was very swift and convenient I noted right off the bat. I was given room 109 which has two double beds and a small refrigerator. I logged in to the WIFI and i noticed that they have different WIFI systems set up, one for free for basic internet usage, and the other one for like $5 for 24 hours for more robust and faster for things like skype. I choose the free WIFI and it was more than fast enough for what I was using it for. The hotel is right on one of the main roads of Santa Maria but I hardly noticed the noise at all in the room. They have a nice pool, and a nice little fitness room. Overall I enjoyed my stay and I will be back in the future.
