"Very comfortable stay"

Robin F, Ventura, California 09/11/2019

I stayed one night on a business trip and found this BW to be a great place to stay. My room was clean, very comfortable and the staff was pleasant and attentive. Breakfast included scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes and hot oatmeal. I especially liked the choices for add-ins for my oatmeal. The room furnishings were in good condition and tasteful. Very comfortable bed. All in all, a great place for me to stay when I'm in Santa Maria.

"Great location and staff"

Kathy D, San Jose, California 07/11/2019

BE Santa Maria was a great place to stay. Staff is friendly, professional and helpful. Room was clean and safe and the mattress and pillows were very comfortable. Close to Pismo Beach and ALL would stay here again if in the area

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review

We do hope you got a chance to enjoy our heated pool/spa and our freshly prepared breakfast each morning of your stay!

Jessica C, Garden Grove, United States 04/11/2019

In Central CA during a vacation to Pismo Beach, this hotel is spacious, clean, serves a full and delicious breakfast, and best of all is only 15 minutes away from downtown PB. Just the location and setting alone makes this a great stay, but what truly helped make this vacation great was the exceptional service of Roxanne, Theresa, and Ashley. Roxanne helped make sure our breakfast experience was top notch, Theresa helped resolve any billing concerns, and Ashley helped set up our vacation with relevant tips and recommendations for thre area. When in the area again, we will undoubtedly be here once more!

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You Jessica C fr staying with us! We are so glad to see you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us! Most of our guests are those like you, who are traveling to Pismo Beach but would rather not pay Pismo prices but still get superior service. I am so happy to see that our staff were able to attend to your every needs and go above and beyond to ensure you had a stellar stay with us and whenever you were around the area. Should your travels bring you back to the area, we do hope you'll choose to stay with us again here at the Best Western PLUS Big America Hotel! Thank You again!

"Good enough"

Karen064, Sacramento, CA 14/10/2019

This BW is a double bank of rooms in a horseshoe around the large parking lot. Although on a main street, rooms near the back are quiet. Nice lobby and small pool next to it with tables and lounges. Breakfast was better than average. Room was a bit worn, but not yet shabby. Loved that our King Suite actually had a separate bedroom (with a door and everything). It was spacious, except for the bathroom, and had a sink in the living room.

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You Karen064 for staying with us here at the Best Western PLUS Big America Hotel! We are glad to see you enjoyed your stay with us and the amenities we have to offer. The King Suites are great rooms but they do have a smaller bathroom to compensate for the larger living room and bedroom area. All in all it seems that you enjoyed your stay with us and we do hope you'll come stay with us again in the future! Thank You!

"So pleasantly surprised by this hotel!"

User 13/10/2019

Stayed here on our drive up the coast, as we had tired of paying “beach prices” and were looking for something less expensive. This place was way better than we expected it to be. The pool was a bit on the chilly side, but the hot tub was huge and didn't seem overly hot, so I happily sat in it while my kids jumped between it and the pool. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, and the breakfast was one of the better ones we've had. Bacon, eggs, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, oatmeal and yogurt with all the fixings, cereal, fruit, and a waffle maker. The one complaint my kids had was that the sofa bed was uncomfortable and they could feel springs. I'd be hesitant to sleep an adult on it, but the regular king bed was great! Overall, I'd highly recommend this to anyone!

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You Erin F for staying with us here at the Best Western PLUS Big America Hotel! We are so glad to not only be your stopover hotel as you traveled the coast, but also a pleasant surprise! We greatly appreciate your kind words regarding our amenities, breakfast and staff. Should your travels bring you back to the area, we do hope you'll choose to stay with us again! Thanks again!

Mike M, Escondido, California 27/09/2019

great check in, older facility with rooms redone nicely, but shower head was turned upside down and knob for hot water loose, got scalded, then froze trying to adjust it, also remote sporadic, needs batteries, who checked this room out? breakfast was great, my 39th night out this year, this one is tops, but in older neighborhood off the freeway, no express check out offered so I asked and it wasn't done. you decide...as for me, I'll pass on Santa Maria altogether

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You Mike M for staying with us! We definitely appreciate your taking the time to leave us this in depth review so we can celebrate what we've done right and fix what went wrong during your stay with us. I absolutely agree with you when it comes to paying attention to those minor details, because they do count and they are noticed. I do understand that you'll choose to pass on Santa Maria altogether in the future, but if you change your mind and do end up coming back I hope you'll come back and visit us again! Thanks again!

Make sure if Theresa (Front Desk Manage) is working- when you go into the lobby, make sure you tell her what room youre staying in and the first and last name the room is under before you make any move- so youre not harassed and questioned

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
We of course want to start by thanking you for choosing to stay with us and we hope that outside of this incident that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us. I do apologize on behalf of my whole team that you went through this experience. We do our best to make sure that our guests are the ones enjoying our fabulous breakfast and not everyone who walks by the Hotel, which is why we pass out breakfast coupons. I will definitely be using this incident as a training tool to avoid situations like this occurring in the future, so I do appreciate you bringing this to my attention. I do hope you'll consider staying with us again in the future and we thank you again for staying with us.

Samantha W, Bakersfield, United States 13/09/2019

Stayed here for two nights on business. Hotel arrangements were made by my employer so I had no idea what I was getting. I was pleasantly surprised by the roomy guest rooms. The bath and dressing area was particularly large. A nice surprise. Decor was a bit dated, but in good shape. The property has outdoor corridors, which I'm not a fan of, but it was reasonably quiet for being on a busy street. Breakfast was the usual fare, decent, but hard to get to in the crushing crowd of tourists on Sunday morning. Still, I'd give the place a solid recommend for a clean, quiet stay in town.

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You Samantha W for staying with us! We are thrilled that your employer chose to send you to us and that you were thoroughly surprised by what you encountered. From the rooms, vanity and amenities we are glad to see you enjoyed your stay enough to be willing to recommend us in the future. We do appreciate your patience during breakfast with the traveling tourists, every now and then we get a foreign traveling group that stays with us so breakfast can be overwhelming at times but worth it. We hope you'll come back and stay again soon!

"Best breakfast!!"

skymom8, Arlington Heights, Illinois 04/09/2019

We asked for a room away from the main street and the staff was very accommodating. The room itself was clean and fairly quiet but outside area by stairs could use a bit of cleaning up. And the breakfast was the best one we've ever had in all our car travels. Lots of hot choices as well as other fresh choices. Would stay here again if in the area.

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You skymom8 for this lovely review regarding our staff and Hotel. We are glad you not only enjoyed your stay with us but also the amenities we have to offer. We DO hope you'll come back and stay again in the future!

We stayed here one night on our way to Southern California, best breakfast with lots of choices. Largest eating space so far on our travels. We were going to stay in solving on our way home 2 days later but liked this place so well we booked another night. Excellent place.

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You CarolB3693 for staying with us and for leaving us this review! So glad to see you enjoyed your little stopover stay on your way to SoCal! Also, we LOVE that you changed your plans to stay with us again on your way back! We definitely hope you'll come back again in the future.

My favorite place to stay in Santa Maria. Large comfortable room with amazing bathroom. Very affordable. Good free breakfast. The one elevator is a little far from most of the rooms but stairs are everywhere.

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You Adrienne S for staying with us! So glad to see we're your 'favorite place to stay in Santa Maria' and that you enjoy our rooms, breakfast and more. We definitely look forward to you coming back again in the future!

MrRS-lv-sm, Las Vegas, Nevada 27/08/2019

First time staying here, will consider again when in town. Area felt good and secure, no issues restaurants are near by. Freeway entrance is near, mall is not that far Pismo Beach right off the 101 freeway

"Clean and comfortable with nice renovations"

abqwolfe, Albuquerque, New Mexico 23/08/2019

This property is older but very clean and comfortable and appears to have been recently renovated. The price seemed a bit on the high end, but it was still lower than other chains in the area and close enough to drive to Pismo Beach to watch the sunset! The expanded breakfast is great – scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, fruit, oatmeal, cereals, yogurt, pastries, breads, waffle maker, etc. and juice and coffee. The breakfast room is very large and comfortable. The only “con” in our opinion was the elevator. Yes, they have ONE elevator but it is at one end of the hotel which is a “U” shape. If you are lucky, your room is near the elevator – otherwise, you walk from the elevator ALL the way around to the other side! Luckily our room was in the middle of the "U" so once we took our luggage up the elevator to the 2nd floor, we used the stairs to come and go. Our stay was just one night, but very pleasant and we had a good rest before heading up the coast the next day.

"Great place to stay"

Q1944OFsandram, Phoenix, Arizona 18/08/2019

We stayed here as an overnight stop on vacation. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, recommending a great local place to eat. The room was clean and comfortable and we'll above average for this type if hotel. The only drawback is this us a traditional outdoor entrance hotel, and we prefer an indoor entrance for security. Otherwise, I would recommend this hotel, pretty good value for the price.

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You Q1944OFsandram for staying with us during your vacation! We are so happy to see you enjoyed your stay with us with the only drawback being the outdoor corridors versus indoors.

Steve H, Torrance, California 12/08/2019

Our room was clean, well stocked, and nicely decorated. We asked for (and received) a 2nd floor room with 2 queens. After the 1st night, we asked to see a room with a king bed, and, although it was nice, we decided to stay put. They have a nice breakfast available with a reasonable amount of seating. There is also a pool & spa, plus a barbecue in the patio area. Although the manager (Theresa) always had a smile, the only thing we missed was a rack with brochures for things to do in the area. Other than that, a good place to stay! Enjoy

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You for staying with us Steve H! We are so glad to see you guys thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us and our staff, go Theresa!

My husband and I stopped here for the night on our way up the coast. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice the hotel was. The employees were friendly and accommodated our request for a 1st floor room. Room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was a bit more than most hotel free breakfasts. Bacon, potatoes, biscuits and gravy in addition to waffles and bagels and other pastries and yogurt. We were happy with our choice to stay here!

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You karmachic1 for staying with us and for taking the time to leave us this review!

Here for a single night on a family trip across the West coast of America. The accomodation was great, clean and staff were very helpful. The hotel did have a large number of workers staying which was fine for us, we were up an out early but could put some people off with the noise. All in all a good stop and convenient for the access roads.

If you are passing by, it's a nice hotel. Staff is friendly and the breakfast was ok. Unfortunately, there was only disposable ustensiles and plates. I would have appreciated something more eco-friendly, to produce less garbage. Room was clean but a bit old.

Thank You for staying with us Apocalypstyck! We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review and for staying with us!

HonoluluLocalgirl, Honolulu 15/06/2019

I made this reservation months in advance. My charge card expiration date was approaching and I called and spoke to Monique who efficiently took care of the problem and in the process had me looking forward to my stay, we spoke about the area and the hotel. My family loved the bathroom separate from the sink (my son is always manipulating the bathroom) We were sadden to hear that Shaw's Restaurant was no longer in business but we found another place to get our Santa Maria Bar B Q fix. The breakfast was great and more than enough for the start of our day.

Thank You HonoluluLocalgirl for staying with us and for taking the time to leave us this review! We are so glad to see you were able to get that resolved prior to your arrival and were even able to get some exciting, and not so exciting, news regarding the area and things to do [Good Job Monique].

Alison M, Leeds, United Kingdom 27/05/2019

We stayed here for a few nights on our way from San Francisco to LA and had a lovely time. The room was very large with a massive kingsized bed that was extremely comfortable as well as a large sofa / sitting area. In addition to the large bedroom there was also a vanity area, walk in wardrobe, and separate toilet all in the bathroom - much more than we expected in a motel. The whole room was very clean and well maintained. Included in the room rate is a "free" breakfast which included a waffle making machine (the waffles were amazing) as well as bacon, eggs, cereals, bagels etc - more than enough to set you up nicely for the day ahead. The motel is extremely well located with supermarkets and restaurants all located within walking distance. The pool area, whilst small, was very clean and extremely well maintained. We would definitely recommend this motel for a few days stop over if visiting Santa Maria.

Our stay was just fantastic -- we arrived during the final 10 minutes of a citywide power outage that had been going on for the previous two hours. The front desk staff was handling the chaos extremely well, and they were explaining to us that we did not have to stay if we did not want to when the power came back on. The room was delightful, and the included breakfast was far better than I expected given that it came with the room. Finally, I was touched to receive a text several hours after we checked out letting me know that an item was found in our room. I called the hotel and they quickly mailed it back to my home address. Wonderful service!!

travln m, SF bay area 05/02/2019

Ive always stayed at this hotel for business, and have been pleased until my recent stay. After checkin I went to my room and after settling in I heard a noise and found a cat under my bed. He came out, stretched and went to the door to get out. Good thing I didnt have my dog with me. Breakfast was a joke. there are not enough tables and the tour groups take up most of them. If you see a tour bus in the parking lot (taking up 20 spaces) then make sure you get to the breakfast before 7. After 7 the food is gone, they are like locust, devouring everything in site. I tried to get coffee and all three pots were empty. No oatmeal and a majority of them are rude. I just checked out and went to mcdonalds. Too bad its not being ran properly, ill have to find another place to stay in town.

Our housekeeping staff do their best to inspect and then re-inspect the rooms to ensure there cleanliness and that they are ready to rent, so he must've evaded them when they were doing their inspection. We also want to apologize about the seating for breakfast, as we have it with the lobby and overflow breakfast area it does get pretty packed in there, and people just love to eat it so much they don't leave. Our breakfast attendants do their absolute best to keep things stocked so that everyone gets a fresh hot breakfast, but sometimes it just gets away from them and does take a little while longer. All in all we want to thank you for staying with us, we greatly appreciate that and we thank you for taking the time to let us know all about your stay so we know what to work on to make your next stay super!

"Comfortable stay. Great location off Hwy 101 with decent price."

The location of the hotel was super. Easy access to 101. The hotel is comfortable. Breakfast was good. Rubbery eggs were the only drawback. There is a restaurant on the corner that is actually really good. It is just a walk across the parking lot making it quite convenient. The property was clean.

Thank You 331cathleend for staying with us! We are glad to see you enjoyed your stay wtih us while passing through Santa Maria! We definitely appreciate your kind words regarding our Hotel and Breakfast, we are sorry to see you didn't enjoy the eggs though. Francisco's Country Kitchen next door is a GREAT restaurant and we are happy to see you enjoyed their food as well. Should your travels bring you back to the area, we hope you choose to stay with us again. Thanks again!

This was a very special weekend, my mother's 84 th birthday and finally got her children together. 2 of her children and spouse stay at the hotel. I stay here every time I come to Santa Maria to see how my mother is doing. They always have been great. But this time it was beyond excellent. All the employees I encountered went over and above to help make this weekend so very precious to my family.. We plan to come back soon and more of my family coming with me for Mother's Day. Thank you all.

Stayed here for one night as we continued further north. We had a king size bed, which was very comfortable. Bathroom was spacious as well. Room was clean and Wi-Fi ran smooth. We did use the fitness center and made great use of it. It's a small space, but it has the basics and we were creative to get a great workout in. Breakfast was delicious as there were plenty of options. Staff was great and welcoming! Would definitely stay here again.

Huge building with a lot of parking spaces which are free. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was Ok, had a good night's sleep. Unfrtunately there was no restaurant for dinner though so we had to go next door. Great breakfast, it was served in a meeting room next to reception. All in all, very good hotel, recommended.

My husband and I came to Santa Maria for a friends wedding and the service was spectacular. The front desk receptionist was able to get us an early check in so we had time to make it to the wedding. The breakfast was hot and fresh. The pool and spa was amazing. We would definitely stay here again.

We spent a night while attending a wedding in Nipomo and had a lovely stay at this hotel. Our king room was spacious and very clean. It appeared to have been newly remodeled. We especially liked that the bathroom had two areas for getting ready with mirrors and outlets for both. We slept well in the comfortable bed. Breakfast was tasty, the breakfast area was pleasant, and the breakfast staff was exceptional! We will definitely stay in a Best Western Plus in the future!

"Spacious Suite with Separate 'Living Room'"

Sarah M, Reno, Nevada 17/10/2018

This is a large property with lots of rooms. It is used by a lot of groups and tours. We were just a couple, but unlike a lot of 'tour' hotels, were greeted warmly and treated as important as the repeat tour groups. We booked a room, but were given a suite which was a nice surprise. The hotel is located on Broadway, which is the primary, very busy, street. For a quiet stay, I would request a room as far back on the property as possible. The room was very clean and well appointed. The breakfast was the usual Best Western fare - not the best, but certainly adequate and what one expects from this chain.

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You Sarah M for staying with us! We are so glad to see you enjoyed your stay and the upgraded suite.

Alessandra H, Los Angeles, California 15/10/2018

I was a little wary about staying here given the outside appearance of this hotel, but it did not disappoint. Despite the outside "motel-like" appearance, this hotel is just like other Best Westerns, if not one of the better ones. Our room was immaculate. Two things I always check upon first entering the room is if the pillows and sheets smell clean, and if there is any hair/etc. in the corners of the bathroom. Our room passed my tests with flying colors. I only have one not-too-big complaint. At around 2am and also at 7am, there were large knocking sounds. It kind of sounded like someone bouncing a basketball next-door or outside our apartment just a few times. I assume it was the sound of suitcases or room cleaning carts riding over bumps on the balcony. I don't think it was anything that could have been helped. Otherwise, it was a very quiet, clean and well-insulated room.

BW_Santa_Maria, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thank You Alessandra H for choosing to stay with us! We are so glad that your initial thoughts were quickly changed as you arrived and that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us! We greatly appreciate your kind words on our room cleanliness and service. We do apologize about the noise that you experienced during the evening, we do a very good job at monitoring the grounds in the evening so it must have been someone who had checked in late with a heavy suitcase. Lastly, we are thrilled to read that we passed your very thorough room inspection and we definitely look forward to you coming back and doing another. Thank You again for staying with us and we look forward to your next visit with us.

Anytime we travel within staying distance of this property we will be staying here. They met every expectation for me and my family. Quiet, clean and comfortable room and louge area. I asked in advance for suggested events and housing developments for this area an their staff gave me great suggestions. Clean pool, secure and centrally located for restaurants. Piano in the lobby that is available for those that can play to use. My grandson is a DJ and singer and was allowed to entertain them if a song. I have paid more for less, in my opinion price could have been higher. Great place.

MagnumSugarBear, PD 23/07/2018

This is an ok stopover but nothing great. Architecture on arrival is imposing, not welcoming. Counter staff was good but we had two instances of staff peeping into our windows, which left us feeling creeped out. The room smelled dank on arrival but improved when we opened the windows. They do allow pets, which worked for us. Included breakfast was ok at best, undercooked bacon is particularly scary when traveling. Three stars overall.

travelerNevada, Long Beach, California 17/07/2018

This is an great hotel for visiting the wine country or just passing through. The front desk staff were warm and helpful shout out to Krystal who was terrific in helping us get into the perfect room! Warm cookies in the afternoon great you (who could ask for anything more???), Rooms are very clean, towels are really nice, white with a waffle design. This a green hotel with no plastic in the waste bins, ice cooler or laundry bags (ask at the front desk if you need something). They furnish the rooms with 2 complimentary bottles of water, along with coffee, microwave and refrigerator. Beds were a bit too firm for us but pillows were fine (although we do travel with our own), sheets were comfortable, a/c worked very nicely and we were comfortable overall. Breakfast was good, bacon was a nice surprise, scrambled eggs were ok and probably better than many Diners. I would definitely recommend this motel and rate it higher than 3 stars!

sixlegsup, Los Angeles, California 16/07/2018

But the room just didn't feel clean, especially the carpet. And for some reason, the A/C actually made the room feel more humid and damp. We had a suite which was small but workable. The kitchenette area was tiny but at least it and the seating area were well separated from the back bedroom. The service was great; super nice at the desk. And the main lobby area was attractive and nicely connected to the eating area. Breakfast was good and well stocked. The pool, though not huge, was nice, and it had a decent gym - everything you'd need. For this part of the trip I definitely liked the hotel more than the town. Sorry Santa Marians. A cleaner, less damp room and this is easy a 4 star review.

We decided to take a trip and explore the coast of California after we got off of a cruise to Alaska. Since we were Best Western Rewards members.. we stayed in this hotel exclusively.

We were able to park in front of our room and access the room from the parking lot which is a great convenience if you have a lot of luggage. The lady who checked us in was very friendly and professional. The room was nicely decorated and somewhat unique in that you could close off the bathroom and closet area and there was a separate room for the toilet. The room had microwave and refrigerator. Breakfast was excellent and the breakfast room was pleasant and spacious. All in all, a very nice hotel.

Bill A, Indio, California 25/06/2018

The hotel itself is quite nice. The problem is the guests! The hotel is set up motel style, with doors opening on to the parking lot. Guests who smoke felt it fine to hang out in the parking lot and in front of rooms in groups and talk (VERY LOUDLY) well past 10 pm. Kids were running around on the outside balcony well past 11 pm. I had to call the front desk TWICE to get some quite, which finally happened around 11:30 pm. The smoking situation could be rectified if the hotel designated a smoking section - the covered area opposite the lobby entrance would be ideal. This would at least help with the crowds of burly men hanging out in front of room doors - which didn't make me feel safe - and I am a big man myself.

The room was clean, and comfortable. It was mostly quiet, except for a person who was knocking on a room door for about 10 minutes at approximately 6am . This Best Western has outdoor hallways, so any noise seemed to come from the outside. The inner walls provided peace and quiet. The breakfast was a disappointment - wet eggs, soggy bacon, and mushy cold potatoes. Oh well, I wish I liked oatmeal!

Adrian W, Stockton, California 01/04/2018

I arrived at 10pm with two teenage boys in tow. We had driven five hours to get to Santa Maria for a family gathering. I felt welcome from the first interaction. The ladies behind the desk checked me in quickly and greeted me by name. I felt like I had just arrived at the home of a friend. I asked what time the pool reopened, as my boys were really looking forward to a swim. They let them swim, with the instruction that they not get too loud. The hot tub automatically turns off at 11. At 11, someone came outside and asked if we would like to use it longer and manually turned it back on. My boys were ecstatic! The room was large and comfortable, but the restroom was amazing. It was like a master bathroom, not the teeny hotel bathrooms you usually see. It contained a large closet and a well lit vanity. Breakfast was delicious! Eggs, bacon, waffles, fruit, biscuits, gravy, country potatoes, toast, bagels, danishes, muffins, 4 kinds of cereal, and hot oatmeal. My boys were stuffed (and as anyone with teenage boys knows, filling the belly of a teenage boy is not an easy thing to do!) When it was time to check out, my boys did not want to leave. We truly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again.

This was the best motel at best rate I've stayed at during my vacation in CA. Price very reasonable, staff courteous and above and beyond helpful. Breakfast included nice variety of hot foods, i.e. eggs, bacon, etc and fresh fruit and other items. Highly recommend this motel. Don't count on all Best Westerns to be this great tho. Staying at one tonight in Arroyo Grande that is nothing like the 1 in Santa maria.

Really nice long grounds. Rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. The bed was really comfortable. The basket was probably the second best we've ever had. Real eggs! And good bacon. We stayed in a suite because there was nothing else left. Really nice suite.

santabarbaraserenity, Santa Barbara, California 22/03/2018

As a rule, I like Best Westerns; they are generally consistently good places to stay. This was one the best I have ever stayed at. All the staff were friendly and accommodating. I made the reservation last minute and they gave me a good price on a one bedroom suite on the second floor. The reservation was easy and smooth (be sure to use your rewards or AAA rate). The check in was easy and smooth and the room was clean and comfortable. They had fruit, cookies, muffins and yogurt to snack on at any time day or night, two free bottles of water in the room and a pretty decent included breakfast of eggs, bacon, waffles, fruit, yogurt, muffins, potatoes, etc. and lots of coffee, tea or water. I think if other Best Westerns want to visit a model of what a good hotel with good service looks like they should visit the Best Western Plus Big America in Santa Maria; they have it down.

"Very Good Hotel To Stay At"

Patricia M, Newbury Park, California 19/02/2018

Room was nice, noisy though. This is a large hotel. There were many rooms around us. Being a Saturday night, I could hear coming in until about 1 am. Recommend asking for room upstairs (so no one above you) or toward corners (not next to you). Service and cleanliness were good though. Breakfast area was a little small for the amount of people, very crowded. But food was good. Basic Best Western fare...

Stayed 3 nights in a suite, not that big, but very nice with all the amenities you need, except for a safe. Clean, newly remodelled, nice breakfast, heated pool, we liked it here. Payed 83$/night including taxes was a good price for what we got. Wifi worked fine.

Islandguy808, Hilo, Hawaii 07/01/2018

I stayed here for six nights in late December. My room was large, clean and comfortable. The hotel was very busy while I was there but there was always plenty of parking. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The breakfast room was crowded in the morning and it was sometimes difficult to find a seat. There is a meeting room next to the breakfast area which they opened on busy mornings which helped. I would definitely stay here again if visiting Santa Maria.

Although the outward appearance of the hotel is dated, the rooms were the latest decor and up to date amenities. Very comfortable beds, large bathrooms and free internet.

It was clean and quiet, though the "hot" tub was not heated. We usually stay at the Ramada Inn, but the rate was $50 more at the Ramada Inn so we stayed at the Best Western. We liked that it had a Blaze Pizza and a Starbucks right next door.

Pat D, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 10/11/2017

We stayed at the Big America at the end of October. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed, a king, was also very comfortable. Breakfast was very good and the attendant was very good. When we checked out, I forgot my iPad. I realized it at the flight gate in LAX. I quickly called and spoke to Monique who dropped everything, went to my room and retrieved my iPad. She verified my address and handed the iPad for shipping to Christie. The iPad was shipping home, free of charge, and arrived on Friday. What great employees! A testament to the great service at Big America. I'll definitely consider Best Western in future trips! Btw, Service, Cleanliness and Sleep Quality were all 5 stars. Trip Advisor site not working properly.

LinVonCA, Pleasanton, California 09/11/2017

Recently stayed 2 nights in a suite w/king bed & queen sofa pull-out. Room fresh & clean. Breakfast very good. King bed comfortable. Sofa pull-out marginal. Couldn't sleep second night cuz engine of big rig w/refrigeration kept firing up to keep it cold. At 1:30 a.m. tried repeatedly to reach front desk. 20 minutes later, got dressed & went to lobby & complained. Mgr said they instruct big rigs to park on W.Williams (which parallels south side of rooms). Mgr completely unsympathetic. Woman at front desk the next morning also unsympathetic when I checked out. Was so tired after losing so much sleep & had long drive ahead. If they had better quality windows the big rig sound would be muffled.

suds3630, Colorado 07/11/2017

I just checked in and will be staying 2 nights. I am already regretting that I prepaid. My room has a “funky smell” to it. It is SUPER dark and dreary. It is a motel which never makes me feel safe, I thought it was a hotel with indoor corridors. Seems to be a place where men (construction workers) are checking in, no families or couples. Seriously, men walking dogs, men with neon orange construction vests, men walking around with beer bottles, men at the computer in the lobby. The only women I see are housekeepers..... There is no on-sight restaurant, although I was told the country kitchen, next door, was leased by them. So as I'm typing this a man was standing outside my window staring in, I asked if I could help him, he laughed and said sorry. I'm hoping they will let me cancel my reservation!

Very busy at breakfast, but the staff just about coped. Would probably stay again.

Room was huge, clean, newly remodeled, quiet, smelled good, frig and micro, wifi, great breakfast. As a member of Best Westerns points club, I paid only $90 plus tax. Have stayed at both the Santa Maria Inn, and the Candlewood Suites. Nothing against them, but this BW has them both beat. Here you get free breakfast, two bottles of water in the room, cleaner and fresher room, and a cheaper price for me. I read some the negative reviews here. Guess you just can't please everybody. I've never left a hotel review before, but feel this place surely deserves one. Grand piano in lobby and breakfast area was even being played by a very talented guest while I enjoyed breakfast. I can't say enough. No, it is not in a high scale neighborhood. No, it is not the Ritz Carlton, but it wasn't hundreds per night either.

I doubt I'll return to this Best Western. Although the service and the room was good, the nighttime activity of men drinking, smoking, talking and laughing outside my room stunned me. I can't believe management allowed this kind of party like atmosphere. They were in small groups up and down the walkway in front of the rooms. The next morning the remains of their presence could be seen. Cans, bottles and cigarette butts. That's the last time Santa Maria will see me.

The wonderful breakfast buffet was great,with bacon,eggs,biscuits&gravy, toasts,pastries,coffee and juices. I was really impressed when the maids cleaned our room, a lovely lady came by to inspect our room, that it was cleaned properly, she stated that they wanted all their guests to be happy and comfortable. They supplied bottled water in our room each day. I cannot explain how wonderful and immaculate this place really is. You are my first choice coming back next year during vacation.

Bryan M, Anaheim 25/09/2017

We came in town to visit family. The lobby is very clean and nice! We got in very late and the man who checked us in was so helpful and nice. Our room was very nice and clean. The breakfast the next morning was amazing and there was something for everyone. They had anything from fruit and cereal to biscuits & gravy, eggs and waffles. They also have a quick grab and go option if you request where they'll have some fruit and a water bottle or coffee for you to just grab on the way out.

EdgewaterInnSuites, Manager at Best Western Plus Big America, responded to this review
Thanks Bryan M! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay, our staff and the breakfast! We hope that the next time you come to visit family, or just need a getaway, you choose to stay with us again!

"My Stay at the Best Western in Santa Maria Ca"

lassie22, New York City, New York 25/09/2017

The Best Western in Santa Maria is my first choice when I have occasion to come into town. The rooms are a good size and the bed comfortable. I especially like the large bathroom/dressing area with the sink and spacious counter and another counter where a second person could blow dry hair or do other grooming. There is a bar area in the bedroom with a sink, coffee maker, small refrigerator, microwave, 2 bottles of water and a large screen tv. The breakfast buffet is more than adequate with many choices including hot food- scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy. It is all attractively presented and the workers there ready to help when asked.

Thank You lassie22 for your review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you continue to make us your choice Hotel when you're in town. We hope you're looking forward to your next stay with us as much as we are! Thanks again, Management

We had to make an unexpected trip to Santa Maria and stayed at the Best Western Plus Big America. This hotel was super clean, the room was huge, it had a seperate toilet room, a makeup counter, coffee, water, large big screen TV, it was one of the best rooms we have ever stayed in. Excellent price for an awesome room.

A lot of large, loud work trucks frequent this property and they park, backed in very close to your rooms entry door. The workers start the day at 5:30 or so and lasts for a couple of hours. Parking needs attention

Labor day weekend, the place was packed. Staff managed to take care of everyone's needs, made sure there was enough staff to do so, kudos' to the management/owners. Breakfast on Sunday was a bit chaotic, lots of hungry people. I used my BW points for the room for the night, I am happy with my experience. Bed was very comfortable, I need a bed like this for myself.

Rose P, Burbank, California 28/08/2017

The room was nice, large and I liked that the Loo was separate from the shower. The breakfast was more than continental. They kept having to replace the eggs, bacon, potatoes and biscuits. Lots of choices with dry cereals, breads, sweet rolls, bagels, waffles, yogurts, coffee, tea and juices. The staff was very friendly. I liked the 2 story feel of the hotel with not very much noise. We were about 2 doors down from the beautiful pool, still not a lot of noise going late into the night. We left checking out the prices for November!

This was a very good property. The motel was sort of horseshoe-shaped, with lots of parking, but we found it very quiet and comfortable. The rooms are large; ours had a separate living room. (We would have killed for this in NYC!) The service was lovely, from front desk to housekeeper to brrakfast attendant -the pool area tidy. Very good stay! Will definitely return.

This is a find place. A basic motel. It was a larger room than many motels have. Bed was comfortable. We had a handicapped accessible room which was well appointed. Not our favorite motel breakfast but what do you expect from a motel. Bacon was too greasy. Eggs were standard scrambled. The waffle batter seemed thin - but it was fine.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The rooms were very nice and the beds were comfortable. The front desk attended to my every need.

We wanted a place that was clean. This is a lot more than that -- breakfast, hair dryer, bathroom SUITE for goodness sake. But the important part -- that it was clean -- was great. They had space for us at the last minute, which we appreciated. A little on the pricey side for what we were looking for, but probably well-priced for those who want, for example, a coffee pot in their room.

I will just keep it short and sweet as you can see all of the other excellent reviews. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. It had a gigantic and unique bathroom (I don't know how to explain it). I don't think many motels can match the wonderful free breakfast and the very friendly staff. There are a few dining options within walking distance and several within a short drive.*** NOTE***If you want a fun lounge with a good nightlife be sure to check out the bowling alley lounge (about three b locks away ).

This is a good place to stay. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are good equipped and you get a good breakfest after a fine sleep. They had a rodeo in Santa Maria, so people where busy. I would stay there again no doubt about it and recommend that you should try it too. We where in a group of ten and booked 5 rooms. Nobody was disappointed. Only the breakfest room is a bit too small, when the motel has no vacancies. We had to wait for 10 minutes to get a table which is not nice in the morning when you have a plan for the day. But this is my only concern.

Thorsten A, Krefeld, Germany 15/05/2017

This motel provided the best breakfast on our tour which was included in the negotiated accommodation costs. Very good beds and a nice quiet room with automatic air conditioning was satisfying our needs for calming down. Unfortunately the pool was closed for construction. This is a very nice place to be in Santa Maria.

Amber W, San Diego 05/05/2017

Pros: Terrific breakfast! Clean room, nice staff. Cons: The map of the U.S. at checkin is a neat idea, but it is probably the worst (as in least accurate) map/picture of the U.S. I have ever seen. How can this hotel literally be called "Big America" if the owner/manager/staff have no idea what a map of the United States of America looks like? Also, the pool and hot tub were broken.

Hello Amber W, We want to thank you so much for staying with us during your time in Santa Maria, Ca.

On our road trip from San Fran to LA this was our stop and the beds were the most comfortable of the 3 hotels we stopped in during our tour of Arizona and California. Not much to do in the area but the rooms were great - just a shame we stopped one night though the breakfast did not live up to its sister hotel in Fremont.

Very nice staff at the reception desk with helpful information of the area. Had stop for the night from seeing the wild flowers at Carrizo Plain witch was fantastic. Recommended going back through fraiser park to see the Condors and continue to Antelope valley to see the poppies. The condor area was closed unfortunately. Also recommended Oso Flaco Lake which was very nice even though we did not make it all the way to the beach. Long walk. The room was large and had a good TV and internet. Waffles for breakfast is my fab, had many other choices. Good stay

We went without much planning due to an unforeseen night in Santa Maria and were pleased we chose this hotel. It is unassuming from the street, but we had a nice room with a good bed and the biggest, most well appointed bathroom we've ever seen at a BW property. Didn't use any facilities or eat the breakfast, so can't comment on anything but the room.

This hotel definitely has a few years on it but the room was clean and smelled good. A few problems, closet door wouldn't slide, bathroom fan didn't work but we reported them to the front desk when we left. I believe they will take care of it. Just grabbed a bagel from the breakfast area but it was well stocked and looked very clean. They were busy because it was the day after thanksgiving but they seemed to have it under control.

Ako m, Carlsbad, California 20/09/2016

My husband and I stayed here in July visiting a friend. What I like most about this place was the huge bathroom with a beautiful vanity. There were 3 mirrors and you can angle it to your liking. In that lavatory you will find a closet with long length mirror (right beside the vanity), also the toilet is closed off and a distant away from the tub. Our cleaning lady was superb as she made sure we had new sheets and the toiletries were replenished each time. As many Best Western facilities they serve their breakfast located a tuck away from the lobby, off to the side by the communal area where they have the computers. Very simple as I call them just a starters. What I liked most is the waffle iron, there is a pre made batter to the side and you can make your own waffles and any additions like chocolate chips or caramel sauce is not available, just your regular butter and syrup in individual packets. The only downfall is the location, it seemed not safe at night.

"It was fine...once I complained"

X Y, San Jose, California 19/09/2016

I had a reservation for a disabled room. I checked in around 4:00 PM and, before looking at the room, went to run an errand. When I returned 1) the room was very close to the street (which is extremely busy / noisy); 2) there were no disabled parking spaces anywhere near the room (I don't mean available...I mean AT ALL). Went to the front desk to inquire about a quieter room and there was another couple ahead of me asking about a disabled room. They also said they had no reservation. I immediately piped up that I DID have a reservation...and that they could have *my* disabled room, as I couldn't stay in it because it was too noisy. The clerk gave the no res couple a different room than mine. And he told me that he had no more disabled rooms. When I asked why he'd given them the last disabled room when they had no res and I had told him I did have one, he said they were there first. No, I said...I was there an hour ago and had been given a bad room. After making a bit of a fuss with him he suddenly found another room...far away from the street and with a disable parking space immediately in front of it. Now...why hadn't he done that in the beginning? If not when I first checked in then when I came back to complain? Aside from this, my stay was stellar. The new room was excellent, very clean, quiet, great amenities, etc...nothing at all to complain about. Breakfast begins quite early, even on weekends...fabulous!

Jockojeff, Riverside, California 08/09/2016

My wife and I have met my brother at the Best Western Plus Big America for a relaxing Labor Day weekend for the last 5 years. We find the rooms to be clean, the beds very comfortable, and the housekeeping service very good. My brother, wife and I meet at the Jacuzzi each evening and relax in the hot bubbly waters. the trip back to the room is a little cold but well worth it. This trip I was totally exhausted from several weeks of hard work and my first night I slept like a baby and woke up the next morning totally refreshed. We get coffee, orange juice, yogurt, a Danish and fresh fruit at the morning breakfast each day. There are no eggs, bacon or sausage like at other hotel breakfasts I have been too. They do have hot oatmeal, cereal, bagels, and toast as well. It is a very good breakfast if you are not looking for eggs. Check in and out is always a breeze and we always book our reservation for the following year when we check out since they get booked up for the Labor Day weekend. We have always enjoyed our stay and will continue to come back to the Best Western Big America on Labor Day weekend. I recommend this hotel to anyone considering a trip to Santa Maria.

On a drive from the Bay Area to San Diego, we wanted to stay midway between, making it a comfortable 2 -day drive. This motel really filled the bill, at a reasonable cost. The room was spacious, with all the amenities--small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, desk, high-speed internet. The king bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was ample--waffles, cereal, juice, yogurt, fruit--everything fresh. The town is small and easy to get around, with plenty of nice restaurants for dinner. We would stay there again.

Carol_Shen, Lausanne, Switzerland 30/08/2016

The room had big mirrors all around to make it look very spacious, and it was indeed. We had a king bed and a queen bed, located separately with an air conditioner in each room. The channel guide was very useful and there were many to choose from. Overall very good for money and definitely recommend staying here on budget.

Alyssa R, Brooklyn, United States 28/08/2016

Stayed for the night on 8/20/16 and don't have a single complaint. We arrived late (around 11pm) and the front desk was more than accommodating... they even gave us a ground floor room so we wouldn't have to drag our big suitcases upstairs. Breakfast the next morning was nicer than I expected and those waffles are good! Room conditions were great - AC was cool. Shower was easy to use. And b/c I'm not a coffee person they had available tea bags in the lobby w/ hot water. So nice!

Wayne W, Oroville, California 27/08/2016

Babies crying, dogs barking, street noise, trucks idling and compressors running all night. The worst Best Western I have stayed at. If you decide to stay here get a room as far away from the street and side parking lot as possible. The price was way too much for the quality of this hotel.

"Great Place"

Lori H, Escalon, California 25/08/2016

This place was on the pricey side though it is in the southern part of California, in the middle of summer and not many room available in the area. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was very large. Everything was very clean and comfy. It definitely made up for the price. We ate at the restaurant next door. My opinion not recommended. Otherwise a very pleasant stay. Staff was great!!

d l, So Cal 21/08/2016

Got this on a deal this time from PL, though it is hard it seems to get under $100 because there aren't as many good hotels in SM. Nevertheless, BW here has been updated since my last stay two years ago for the better. The room is still spacious but it is a little more modern. The breakfast buffet offers a lot as usual. As mentioned, the area around the hotel wouldn't be ideal to walk around (best place would be Orcutt or the areas in the newer parts of town). It wasn't as packed as my last visit, so I was able to park in front of my room. Glad to have come back.

I would definitely stay here again.

"Santa Maria Stay"

Mary C, Virginia, Minnesota 16/08/2016

Aside from the sketchy neighborhood, the Best Western Plus Big America, Santa Maria, is very nice. The rooms are very large, with the biggest bathroom I have ever had in a hotel. The beds are comfortable and we didn't hear any noise. They could put some bigger refrigerators in the rooms, though. Don't count on bringing anything that needs to be refrigerated or frozen, there just isn't enough space. There isn't any green space to walk your dog on or near the property without walking in the neighborhood.

"Noisy/This Walls"

Kathryn H, San Jose, CA, United States 15/08/2016

This Motel was noisy. The walls are thin and cars parked right outside the door makes for a more noisy experience. The room was clean, Motel staff was helpful, everything worked fine. I felt it was overpriced for the quality of the structure.

User 10/08/2016

What a relief. After a long drive and last night staying in a random inn that was very poor I was slightly worried as this place was much cheaper. However, the room was excellent. Two very comfy beds with a nice bathroom. All very clean. I was very impressed. Especially with the price. Best Western is definitely the way forward. Thumbs up!!!

"Adventure at the Best Western"

arises, san francisco 06/08/2016

Having read all the great reviews and being very impressed with the low price, I booked three rooms at this BW Plus for a family trip we were making with our two children and their families. I must preface by saying that I haven't stayed in a BW for many years now, as I am very allergic to cigarette smoke and have been staying at Marriott's and Holiday Inn's with 100% smoke-free hotels. I was happy to see that this BW also advertised itself as smoke-free, although when I walked into the lobby I could smell a hint of smoke. Maybe the staff smoked, don't know. When I had made my reservations, I specifically asked if their suites had separate sleeping areas for privacy and was assured that this was so. Upon arrival and check-in, I was really shocked to see that both queens were in one large room.... so back I ran to the lobby and explained my predicament. We also had asked for another adjoining room so that I could help out with the grandkids. Well, every other suite was taken so I had no choice but to get two separate rooms and far away from our other child's room with the grandkids.... I must say I was very upset by this time since we had driven for hours with kids in the car and weren't about to start looking for other hotels. Of course, we survived the night. I must say that the beds were extremely comfortable and my son was very happy with the playpen/crib they were given for the toddler to sleep in. He slept all night long! Breakfast was not bad, many hot things and even some organic ones!!! Yay! But the best part is to come. I received an email a few days later (we will still traveling) asking to rate my experience at this BW and I really blasted them with my unhappiness at the mix-up with rooms and having to pay for an extra room, etc. Very soon after, I received a call at home (I later heard it on my answering machine) and an email from a very nice gentleman,Mr. Max Tucker, general manager, who was eager to fix the problem. In the end, I received a credit for the extra room I had to pay for. I am extremely happy with the customer service from BW in this case. It really makes me believe that some companies really do care about their customers' experience. Thanks again BW and Mr. Tucker!

We rented a 2 room suite. The bed was very comfortable and there is a separate room for the TV and computer.

TravelThroughEurope, Chicago, Illinois 01/08/2016

We chose this hotel because it was cheaper than anything else we could find in the San Luis Obispo/Pismo Beach area and we were not disappointed. It is a motel style hotel but the room was nice. The room and bathroom were large and it was quiet and clean. I have no complaints about the bed. As an added bonus, the room included a mini-fridge and microwave. I would stay here again, though it is about 20 mins from Pismo Beach and 40 mins from San Luis Obispo.

"Convenient and recently renovated rooms"

X86guy, Portland, Oregon 29/07/2016

We decided to stay here and to some rest before a long journey scheduled for the next day. The room was very nice and was recently renovated. The breakfast was good. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We did find the town itself a little rough. We traveled up and down broadway looking for some place to eat, but nothing seemed appealing. We ended up going next door to Francisco's country kitchen and were surprised to how nice it was inside as compared to the run down look on the outside. The food was outstanding, We highly recommend eating there. A good value too. We were unfortunate that a large group traveling together stayed at the same time we did and created a lot of noise with their drinking and socializing. To our surprise, the room kept most of the noise away. Our previous stay was in Palm Springs, so this was a little bit of a culture shock, but the staff and the hotel room made up for what was lacking.

"GREAT ALTERNITIVE TO PISMO AND SLO"

I have found that the prices in SLO and Pismo Beach are REALLY TOO HIGH for what you get. If you are willing to stay about 20 mins from Pismo and 25 from SLO, this is the place to stay. More bang for your buck. If you use this as a home base, there is plenty of things to do. The area is a little sketchy, but so is Pismo after dark.

asharf00, Plantation, Florida 22/07/2016

This is a poorly located old motel, below the Best Western standard. The room we got had a strong smell of bleach, and the wallpaper in the bathroom was falling off (I suspected presence of mold). We asked for another room but we didn't move because I detected odor of bleach there as well (I asked a neighbor to smell his room, and it didn't smell like bleach). Breakfast was OK, but not as good as at the excellent Best Western Plus we stayed at in Monterey.

Everything worked with a very quiet air conditioner, and refrigerator. People were on both sides of us and above us and we could not hear them at all.

This Best Western in Santa Maria is a model of what reasonably priced hotels should strive for. Our stay started with the friendly staff and easy check in. Our room was perfect. At first we commented that it was a little bit small, until we explored the entire room. It was so efficiently laid out that the size was not an issue. A microwave, fridge, extra sink, and "dressing area" were welcome amenities. The room was spotless. Breakfast was a tad above standard fare...burritos, biscuits and gravy, boiled eggs, plus the usual fruit and cereal. All staff (breakfast, cleaners, and front desk) are very well trained. This hotel goes on our list of go-to lodging when traveling Hwy 101.

Every single employee was helpful, smiling and extremely friendly. I have never seen hotel staff so friendly. I encountered the maintenance staff, housecleaning staff, front desk staff and breakfast area staff during my stay and every single one of them were extremely friendly, smiling and you could see that they were actually happy to be working at the hotel.

979bobg, Oceanside, California 02/05/2016

The Best Western Plus in Santa Maria is fairly average looking on the outside - but the cleanliness of the hotel and the rooms is way above average; ditto for the friendly and helpful staff. The complimentary breakfast is pretty standard for these types of hotels, but the food was fresh; and what was supposed to be hot was hot, and what was supposed to be cold was cold - that's not always a given with complimentary breakfasts. The price for the rooms was good as well - a little more than it used to be to qualify for that statement, but what hasn't gone up? To sum it up, we went in a group of about 30-35 people and all in all, I think the Best Western Plus in Santa Maria was a solid hit for everyone.

litsusie, Murrieta, CA 24/04/2016

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and was pleasantly surprised since I knew nothing about it. First of all, the staff is absolutely wonderful! They were very kind, helpful and compassionate. That really stands out in my mind and I think it's very important to have great employees like these people were. My room was very clean and big. It had a microwave, refrigerator and a small sink that was handy. The bathroom was large even having a dressing table with a pretty bench and mirrors so I could sit down and dry my hair and put my makeup on. I've never seen that before in any hotel I've stayed in. My bed was very comfortable and the linens were nice. The only recommendation I would have is to ask for a room near the back of the hotel if you are sensitive (like I am) to noise and are a light sleeper. If I ever stay in Santa Maria again, I will definitely stay here.

This is a good-sized Best Western, on the main drag in Santa Maria. The desk staff is friendly and efficient. Nice decor. My room was quite large, with a sizable dressing/bathroom area, including a separate vanity and large closet. There's a desk, fridge, microwave, and armchair. It would be easy to stay a couple of weeks in such a well-appointed room. Very comfortable bed. Good breakfast buffet.

Found item, called me back and it was on its way home the next day. Met the manager Max while we were there. Very nice. Called to let him know how happy we were with staff and he made sure to let us know how many people involved. Asked to extend our kudos to every one of them. We will definitely keep staying there as we go thru that area. I highly recommend it.

Mario Bill Paul H, Los Altos, United States 06/04/2016

Santa Maria is a town that has good and bad parts and therefore security is a concern. The Best Western Plus in Santa Maria is U-shaped and had ample parking. It does not look run down so it has curb appeal. The front lobby has a professional look complete with piano and lounging areas. The room was clean and the bathroom area was very large; it included its own vanity area. The room had a refrigerator and a coffee maker. The free breakfast is a big plus since it saves you from spending money at a separate restaurant. The breakfast includes plenty of food including waffles. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this location when requiring a room in Santa Maria.

Jim M, Hemet 01/04/2016

We stayed here 2 nights. Our decision to stay her was based on other locations. First things first, the staff was outstanding and went out of their way to explain or do something to make or stay enjoyable. With that said the advertisement states Complimentary Breakfast. To me a breakfast has some eggs, maybe bacon or sausage. This one had none. It did have watery oatmeal, dried out biscuits, floury gravy that had a crust, and a burrito that was filled with mostly hard potatoes. My wife need something Gluten Free, ( which usually is eggs and bacon, but settled for yogurt and watery oatmeal. The wifi was so slow that most times our cell phones could not access and an ipad and laptop were useless. If you are a person in need of wifi, not here. I had to unplug the refrigerator because of fan noise. I had to readjust toilet to stop running after use. Would we stay here again NO.

Michael S, San Francisco 30/03/2016

We selected this hotel because we were traveling with a small dog and this establishment is pet friendly. We were very pleased with the rooms which were clean and spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast offerings were satisfactory and met our needs. However, the free "High speed internet" was not high speed at all. It was sufficient to check emails on a smartphone but my laptop was only able to access the internet for one brief period of time. When I finally got online I ran a speed test and it confirmed a download speed comparable to a dial-up connection. I have never-- and I mean NEVER ...had difficulty like this at any hotel before. I tried both the in room wifi and the lobby wifi with the same results. I would definitely stay here again except when internet access is critical for me.

Robert F, Rockport, United States 27/03/2016

As a BW rewards Diamond status customer, I always try to book the nearest BW to where I will be working in the field which is what brought me to the hotel to begin with. The hotel advertised High speed internet which they absolutely did not have and full breakfast which was poor to be kind about it, disgusting if want the truth as I tasted it. I had a much better experience a 1/4 mile down the road at a competing hotel that will definitely have my business if and when I return.

"Short visit in Santa Maria, Calif."

GlendaleHugh, Glendale 24/03/2016

Hotel appeared fine from outside but once inside I experienced a little different impression. In the lobby next to the check in counter the lobby had a piano and a piano player entertaining the guests. The only problem was she was so close to the check in desk and so loud it made it difficult to talk with the person at the check in counter. I would recommend they move the piano. My room on the first floor was near the pool and the foot traffic going by the room was noisy. The room it self was only average and I felt well over priced for what I got. I would not stay there again on weekend mainly due to the crowd. The breakfast was mediocre and extremely crowded even though I went early I do not think the hotel was prepared for full house this early in the tourist season. Part of the breakfast was under remodel and there was absolutely no seating available for the large breakfast crowd. Check in and check out were very easy although there was a piano player playing a piano very close to check in desk which made it very difficult to talk with the receptionist. Overall, I was disappointed with my stay and probably will stay there again. If I had to, it definitely will not be on a weekend.

RetiredTraveler78, Long Beach, CA 20/03/2016

An OK experience. The facility is like most motels, although the room seemed larger than some. Did notice an unusual configuration - the closet is in the bathroom. The "full hot breakfast" had two hot items besides the make your own waffle - biscuits and gravy or paper wrapped [small] burrito. This term "full hot" to us, typically means some kind of egg [scrambled or omelets] and a meat dish [bacon/sausage]. There were pastries and cereals, two juices and, of course some fruit. All this in a crowded space.

EuterpeThelo, Los Angeles, CA 30/01/2016

Wanted a hotel for a quick overnighter on the way up the coast, and this Best Western fit the bill to a "T." Lobby area is welcoming and immaculate with well-kept furniture. Check in was quick and painless, desk clerk friendly and helpful. Ability to park right in front of your room made load-in a snap. Room was large, clean and comfortable. Mini-fridge, micro and coffee maker are always extra touches that are appreciated. Beds were spotless and comfy with adequate number of pillows. There was a HUGE separate bathroom area, including a vanity mirror and bench and a full-size closet. The bathtub was terrific...it was large, with a curved shower curtain rod, good water pressure, a little shelf on which to set a cup of coffee or something and a nice, sturdy safety bar that made my mom, who is a bit on the older side, feel secure getting in and out. Breakfast was great with a wide selection of choices and helpful staff. Used the business center in the lobby area and everything worked great (computer, printer, etc.). Didn't get a chance to try the wifi, but nice that it is offered free. Wish we'd had time to use the pool and hot tub, because we popped in to take a look and, when I dipped my hand in, the pool was actually heated as advertised and the jacuzzi looked like it would've been wonderful. Also has handicapped equipment to help guests with disabilities enjoy the pool. We especially enjoyed meeting Cleo, the adorable resident cat! He met us at the front door of the lobby when we were checking in and even followed us to our room and escorted us in as we were loading in our luggage! We let him hang out for a while until we were leaving for dinner at the little restaurant next door. Maybe he just knows cat people when he sees them, but it was a treat to have him visit off and on throughout our stay, and he also showed up to see us off as we were checking out! Excellent value for the price point. Definitely recommend this hotel and will gladly stay here again when we are in need of a halfway point between LA and SF.

The location was ideal for us as it was meant to be a one night stopover enroute from Monterey to LA. We chose a family room to accommodate all of us and the bags. Free wifi was very useful and breakfast the next morning was simple yet filling. Burritos ran out very quickly which was a shame. Check-in and check-out was hassle free. The building looks a tad old which is not a very big issue.

This property is very well run and maintained. My room was huge for the price and very comfortable. I thought the price was higher for the town, but on arrival found many more hotels than I expected, so this is a more popular destination that I expected. Breakfast was the normal menu, but this morning the oatmeal cooker turned itself off somehow leaving me with cold oatmeal - which I survived. Everything else either met or surpassed my expectations and I would gladly return.

I was pleasantly surprised at just how nice and comfortable this hotel is. I'm a Best Western rewards member, so I have stayed in many of these hotels. I have come to expect a good stay, and this establishment did not disappoint. In fact, it far exceeded my expectations. The lobby was lovely, decorated beautifully for Christmas. The front desk staff was friendly and informative. They explained morning breakfast, asked if I need any directions, and explained that renovations were going on. However they gave us a room so far from any work that had they not told me, I never would have known. The room was large, (king size bed) had a huge bathroom with a separate commode, dressing table and mirror, and a nicely appointed shower/tub. The bed linen was clean, fresh and excellent thread count. There was a bar sink, refrigerator, microwave, and table and chairs. The room was quiet, comfortable and I felt extremely safe. I slept soundly, had a great shower and was completely refreshed. The breakfast was great. Many choices for hot entrées (waffles, biscuits & gravy, eggs) or cold cereals, rolls, juice, and fruit. The coffee was great with real half n half. This was a great overnight stay on my way up the California coast. I'd stay here again. It was a great value!

Mike P, Anchorage, Alaska 18/01/2016

The rooms are clean and good sized. My wife really liked the bathroom set up. The breakfast is an expanded continental one but adequate. There is no elevator so, should you need such, be sure to ask for a ground floor room.

Nice rooms - we had two rooms for a total of seven people. Comfortable beds, very clean. Breakfast wasn't too imaginative, but it was good. We were very pleased and would stay again. Neighborhood was a little dicey, but all was quiet and we felt safe.

"Very good, with one drawback"

4
BillSJ, San Jose 24/12/2015

I'll get to the heart of the matter right away: the hotel says it's completely smoke free, but that really isn't the case. When we opened the door to our room, there was a moderate smell of cigarettes. After about a half hour, I got used to the smell and didn't notice it anymore. This could be related to the fact that the carpet in the room was grimy; you could see a dirt trail leading in the room through the door. So I think if they gave the carpet a thorough shampooing, that would take care of both problems. This was one of the named rooms; we had the Florida room. It was very roomy, and the bathroom was exceptional. The toilet is in its own little room, the sink and bath are both big, and there's even a separate vanity mirror, counter, and chair in another corner. Posh. They have a nice breakfast, with breakfast burritos (the day we were there) and waffle irons. When driving to LA from San Jose, we like to take the first leg in the evening after work; this is a good stopping point. We'll probably stay here again, and hope (and ask) for a different room.

Dear BillSJ, Thank you for your review. We would like to apologize in regards to your room smelling like smoke. We take this seriously and charge whoever smokes in a room an additional $150.00.

We stopped at the best western for a few days rest during our California tour. The hotel was clean and tidy. A nice heated pool was a bonus. Breakfast was ok and the staff were friendly and helpful. Just a short drive to the local beach.

Suzelle, San Luis Obispo, California 17/12/2015

I had the opportunity to stay at this hotel by referral of a business I was assisting (this was a partner hotel of theirs). Very happy with the choice! Was given a room with 2 queen beds (on my request). Good sized room, fairly current furnishings, sizeable bath, with 2 counters (1 with sink; 1 for makeup). Take care, bath water temp is easily scorching hot. Mini kitchenette in corner of front with with sink, micro and mini fridge; and table and two sitting chairs, the latter which rolled to other preferred positions easily. Breakfast included with reservation, and went from waffles to cold cereal, bagels and cream cheese, juice, coffee, fruit, etc. Apparently pets (responsibly managed of course) are allowed on this property as owners are big pet fans as per the front desk personnel. Hotel even includes a resident cat in the office area. :) Easy and plenty of parking options in the center (including if you pull in late, plenty of light), while hotel itself wraps around in u-fashion the lot. Would certainly stay here again!

"Stay away."

I'mPedro, Los Angeles, California 15/12/2015

We were looking for something inexpensive but clean for a short stay after a long drive. This was not it. The room looked nice enough at first but didn't quite pan out. The bed was horribly uncomfortable and the pillows lumpy. The chair in the room had rips in the arms of the upholstery. The bedside lamps bulb was broken and hanging by a filament . The shower curtain rod was coming out of the wall and there were douche packets left on top of one of the shelves. The walls were so thin I could hear the entire conversation of the couple above us in the bathroom as well as the sounds of evacuating bowels. If you still decide to stay here please refrain from eating any of the hot breakfast items and stick to the cereal and bread. The eggs were weird foamy disks, the bacon so thin you could see through it and the potatoes weren't cooked all the way. Just keep driving until you find something better.

"Very Nice Stay!!"

BigDeeg D, Apache Junction, Arizona 14/12/2015

I was in Santa Maria for a Memorial Service and stayed here for 1 night. The area looks pretty bad but if you come in off of the freeway, you miss all of that. The entrance and the grounds are kept very nice and the parking area was very clean. The Lobby is really nice along with the staff. Every member of the staff that I interacted with were very nice and friendly. Room was Fantastic, very clean and the bed was really comfortable. We had a pretty emotional day, but Best Western made it our night very comfortable. We got up in the morning and had a breakfast burrito, coffee and biscuits and gravy. It was really good. The woman at the counter for checkout topped off the stay making it an Excellent Stay.

NellaiXpress, Sunnyvale, California 10/12/2015

Was looking for a place to crash on thanksgiving weekend and this was the only one that had vacancy near the Pismo beach area within the price range for us. Beds were good. Nice LED TV. Closet was inside the bath-area!!!! And another weird thing noticed was toilet was separate from the bathtub area!!!! Had a mini fridge and microwave and a small kitchen sink. This was very helpful to warm snacks and store them. Ample parking was available. Breakfast was ok with bagel/burrito/waffle/biscuit/oats/egg/coffee/juice/

Jay S, San Jose, California 28/11/2015

The hotel is conveniently located not too far from the freeway. The lobby looked great with big beautiful chandeliers. The room was quite comfortable, the one that we stayed had a queen bed and a pull-out in two separate rooms with a TV in each room. Our room had a microwave and mini-fridge along with a single-cup coffee maker. The bathroom was well organized and spacious. It is a good one for a quick overnight stay. It is along the main road and there are quite a few businesses like supermarkets and restaurants that are accessible. Breakfast was good with good choices of items. Wi-Fi was good but seemed a little compared with the other hotels that we have stayed.

This hotel is nothing special, but nothing bad at the same time. Stayed two days the past weekend with my family and the room was clean and tidy. The furniture was a bit dated, but it was still good enough for us. We had a room away from the street so not too much noise. The breakfast was ok, but can't get too picky on a free breakfast.

I am extremely loyal to the Best Western brand and generally I am satisfied with their properties 90% of the time. Unfortunately, this property falls into the bottom 10%. Property looks a bit tired. Overall, there are better choices in Santa Maria than this hotel. Sorry, Best Western.

The beds were wonderful. We had 2 connecting rooms and everyone had a great nights sleep. Plenty of towels for the bath and enjoying the hot tub. The breakfast waffles were wonderful with hard boiled eggs available for protein. Just don't eat the cookies served in the evening.

"Not as Promised"

squue, longview 24/10/2015

Your own website ad for Santa Maria PLUS Big America offered a full, complete breakfast. It was only an express with no cooked eggs or meat, etc. That is why we paid more and went with this hotel as we were there for 3 nites. Carpets were very dirty in room and sink backed up. Very noisy from street. Would not stay here again and feel we are owed money for not receiving what your own ad promised.

we have stayed at best western in the past for family outings. i travel for company work. they don't usually put us in best western and use others because of price. i'm going to ask if we can use the best western for rooms when away for business. i feel secure, and the rooms are much nicer and cleaner.

"Good but dated"

User 13/10/2015

Several other reviewers have used "dated" to describe this property. It's an appropriate term. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall the grounds were clean and well kept, though the area in which this Best Western is located is several blocks away from the newer shopping areas. The bed (a king) was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. But, the carpet was in bad shape--very worn and needs to be replaced. I'm assuming that the musty odor that greeted us on entry eminated from the carpet. The mirrors on the walls may have been hip at one time, but they should also go. I was told the property is in the process of remodeling rooms but apparently had not gotten to mine yet. I honestly can't see why this was the #1 rated hotel in Santa Maria.

"Outdated, smelly, waaay below Best Western standards"

BuendeKES, Oak Park, CA 11/10/2015

Stayed here last Thursday night. I'm shocked at so many good reviews; I was at a different hotel. My room had a bad smell, dirty bathroom, very mish-mash outdated decor, threadbare sheets, and uneven floors. Perhaps some of the rooms positively evaluated here have been recently updated, but then why am I paying the same price for a lesser quality room? I don't think it speaks well of management integrity when this happens. Be careful and make sure to ask for a newly renovated room, or a discount if you end up in an old room like I did. Trust me: you'll know immediately which one you're in.

B J G, arcadia, United States 08/10/2015

We stayed in a Best Western in city of Santa Maria, Ca. The room was decorated nicely. Had little frig, coffee maker & microwave oven! All these items were positioned efficiently. The best part for me, since i traveled with my adult son & daughter, was the bathroom. There was a separate door to the toilet! YES! The tub, sink & closet was in like a dressing area. This dressing area even had a separate mirror and seat in front of the mirror. This made it easy for all of us to dress without haggling for the sink area. Breakfast was a real treat too.

Samuel S, denton, United States 06/10/2015

There is no way this place is deserving of a 3 star rating. I have stayed at other Best Western Plus hotels and this is by far the most outdated one I have stayed in. There is even a large mirror on one of the walls, which gives the appearance of a place that charges by the hour.

Pretty much what I expected. BW rewards program needs some doctoring. I do not want to add additional words to my review. However, I am adding additional words so I can get out of this screen and move on. This has become annoying and I will probably not make any other reviews in the future and, yes when I call Best Western next I will pass on my sentiments. !

Kevin K, Lakeside, California 29/09/2015

Stayed here 3 nights and was very happy with the room and the service. Has a very large separate bathroom with a sink which is separate from the personal vanity table. Has another separate toilet area with it's own door and the tub/shower area was nice and big. The room had a king bed that was very comfortable and also had a refrigerator and a couch/table/chair area. This place was very nice and well kept and the continental breakfast was hard to beat. They had all the normal stuff and even some I haven't seen before. Like breakfast burritos. Well worth your visit and a better value than other places in town.
