Radisson Hotel Santa Maria

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Seems like a lower star hotel and weird layout. In the room there was a little step/ledge (not really big enough to step on) on the outside of the tub that got in the way and looked like it could be dangerous if you weren't paying close attention to where you're stepping. There was a large lounge chair and ottoman squeezed into the corner against the bed you had to climb over to get to closing the blinds and/or changing the thermostat and it just made no sense to have it in the room. It just made the room feel small and cramped as opposed to adding value. Hotel staff were ok but definitely didn't seem enthusiastic and eager to provide to notch customer service. Sound proofing wasn't great...could easily hear people in halls and down in lower level lobby area. For ice, there was a sign with an arrow but when you walked that way there's no additional signs to let you know the machine is actually down the stairs on a different floor. Didn't try the food or the pool so can't comment on those things, but I did notice the pool had a contraption for handicapped people to be able to get in which I thought was a nice touch. Ample parking was good. The location feels somewhat random and could use better signage from the main roads to show how to get into the hotel parking, though not too difficult, and if we had stayed longer than a night I'm sure the little shooing center next door would have been convenient.

Very nice hotel, friendly staff. Hotel is clean, plenty room for parking and nice to be able to bring our small dog. Breakfast was delicious. Overall a great experience for our family, too bad we could stay only 1 night

Convenient for sure if you are flying in. Right on the airport! Hotel is very nice for a decent price point and the service and staff are pleasant and helpful.

Booking through Orbitz , check-in at hotel, ease of access to room anf facilities, easy checkout. No glitches anywhere.

Had a room by the runway. Loved watching all the different planes.

Toilet didn't flush, didn't have tissue- I would not stay here again.

Very nice hotel. Staff was very helpful room was very comfortable even though we were right next to the airport runways barely heard planes taking off and landing breakfast buffett was excellant.

Hotel experience ok overall. Hotel staff was very nice and understanding.

It's a nice place; what you'd expect from Radisson.

Great location, hotel was clean and well kept. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious with generous portions. The only negative was the radio pod was not working, but the staff supplied a wall jack to charge my phone. All in all it was a pleasant stay.

Pleasant stay, nice park nearby, far from the road and other buildings. A lot of parking. Good restarant albeit expensive. Airport for small planes is dormant.

Very good experience. Staff extremely nice and friendly.

The hotel was clean, staff was polite, breakfast buffet was good but a little expensive. Only complaint was the restaurant/bar in the lobby area. It smelled really strong of alcohol and wasn't inviting at all. But I would stay again, I just know ahead of time not to plan on the onsite restaurant.

We stay here every time we head from Los Angeles to Paso Robles and want to take a break. Great room, service, location and we love the bar, entertainment and Dave the Bartender!

Excellent Hotel. Friendly Staff - great Job. I would stay here again

This Radisson is probably the most modern and new in the area. It's located right by the airport, so I was worried about noise, but there didn't seem to be any flights during the night. And in the morning it was rather cool to watch planes landing right from the hotel window. The pool & spa had perfect water quality (which seems to be rare in even high end hotels). All the furnishings were clean and pretty new. The room was spacious, and the staff very friendly. I never tried the restaurant. This may be our regular hotel for wine tasting weekends.

We were driving back from a trip to San diego and needed a place to stay. This hotel had good reviews and had room service - just what we wanted. They lent us a crib and room service was quick and pretty good. We spent less than 15 hours there but they provided everything that we needed during that time.

We stay at the Radisson Santa Maria two times every year for local sporting events held at Waller Park. The hotel is located on the landing strip at the airport right across the street from Waller Park making it super convenient. The King room is spacious. They have free WiFi. Some rooms also have Sleep Number beds. The rooms have big screen TV's with a microwave and mini fridge. There is also a pool and fitness center. This is one of the nicest and most convenient hotels in Santa Maria. However,the highlight of our annual trip is the delicious Prime Rib dinner in the hotel restaurant. They have a special menu and pricing that includes drinks and dessert if you get there by 6:00pm. They have seats right next to the window where you can watch the planes take off and land. The runway view is available in the bar and from your room if you request airport view. They also have wonderful private booths. They have fresh baked breads and a full wine selection. Just as you might expect here in wine country. The hotel bar also serves food if you prefer a more casual atmosphere. Even though they are upscale with white table cloths, we don't mind dining in our t-shirts and shorts and they have never asked us to change. They also have a fabulous Sunday brunch with bottomless Champagne and all the trimmings. It is kind of expensive but does include all you can eat and drink. I know this is supposed to be a hotel review, but the onsite restaurant and Sunday brunch makes this a super wonderful romantic destination. However, this is a perfect hotel for traveling with family or business. The kids will love the pool. They only allow one choice here, so I chose couples. I always recommend to friends and will continue to stay on my semi annual visits to Santa Maria. Again great for couples, families or business travelers.

Our room was nice and clean. The staff greeted us coming and going. The location was close to town and even though it was at the airport, there was no noise from the planes.

I had a fantastic experience here. I checked in fast and without any problems. The rooms were great clean and comfortable. The room service was also fast and efficient the server was very polite
