2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good experience. Clean rooms. Extra sofa bed suitable for family.

Room was very outdated. Bedcover was worn, only one side table lamp, and room phone did not work to contact office.

I have been working at the hospital and this was a great spot

We only stayed there for one night. Great stop between Carmel And santa barbara if you are travelling throw california coast... Just by the road... Room is very spacious and breakfast is Simple but solves the problem... The only bad thing Was That room was really smelling like ciggars... Even if it is an non-smoking hotel... But for the price it was a nice option...

Neither Bad nor Good, close to freeway and restraunts and gas

It's Quality Inn, not some 5-star hotel. You get what you pay for... decent room, nothing special. Though I was pleasantly surprised with the continental breakfast, as it was just more than cereal, fruit, and coffee. Can't ask for too much when you can find a place for $100 after taxes.

Got eaten up by bugs overnight (bedbugs?) while staying here. Otherwise quiet, clean, OK breakfast buffet.

We were checked in by a marvelous lady who was extremely helpful. Since other family members were to arrive for the memorial service, she was kind enough to let us know they had arrived so we could meet in the office. Breakfast was fantastic, plenty of room and a good selection. Only one problem, we left Comfort Inn one morning to return to Quality Inn in the afternoon. It made things confusing for those who arrived later in the week. It was still a great place to stay. The refrigerater and microwave actually worked, which they often do not a t pricier places.

Comfort Inn Santa Maria was the perfect choice for me. They had everything I needed, including the complementary toiletries such as toothpaste, shaving cream, etc. in case you forget anything. The staff was nice and worked with me in everything I needed. Nevertheless, the night shift lady was rude at times and seemed to be there just to catch up on sleep... Other than that, my only real complaint wold be the dining area. Which was way too small for a hotel. Only a handful of tables. (I actually got lucky and caught a spot just as someone left so I didn't have to take my food back to my room.)

The hotel was a little rundown. Old, dusty curtains and fixtures. Breakfast area of four small tables in lobby was way too small for hotel size. Biggest pluses were price, friendly staff, and convenience from freeway.

Santa Maria Comfort Inn was a motel ran by amateurs. It is a road side in with a lot of parking. The nearest beach anyone can go to enjoy restaurants and shops is 30 miles away. Most importantly they have no night crew that can clean or do repairs. If suddenly a room is flooded or electricity went out there is nothing they can do but wait until the next day. As for the continental breakfast they offer, even though the food is not that bad but the lobby where the breakfast is holds no more than 25 people to sit down, yet when the motel is full you have 50-100 people there trying to get breakfast. The situation is chaotic.
