We booked this reservation discretely so that I could surprise my wife for the Valentine's Weekend. We stayed for 2 nights (Saturday February 16th to Monday February 18th). I had emailed the property beforehand on how excited we were in staying at this property and we'd

I walked in to find out that the hotel “was overbooked by one room” on a Tuesday for a reservation made three months ahead. They were “kind enough” to put us at another hotel chain of their choice that cost usually half the price of a Marriott property where you get what you pay

Erieoat, Hello, thank you for your feedback. We are genuinely sorry to hear about your experience and the overbooking. This is something that does not happen often and we do apologize for the inconvenience. We did go ahead and pay all the charges for the room at the other hotel, we are sorry the other place was not up to standard, they usually do a very great job. Would like to talk to you more about the situation, please feel free to contact me at anytime at 805-925-8500. Thank you,

Located right off highway 101. Boomers miniature golf is right nearby. Nice coffee bar available 24 hours. Easy check in. Clean room and restroom. Could not hear the highway from our room which is great. Decent free breakfast in the morning with the usual waffles, oatmeal and

The rooms are clean! The staff is very helpful. This will be home for the next five weeks so we will see if they keep it up. The breakfast this morning was very good and the coffee hot! So far excellent!

Let me first say that I’m a Marriott regular, so when planning a trip anywhere I first look for this brand. Also, since Santa Maria is near two wine areas it was a perfect place to stay. Because since it was Sunday night, we got a great rate which includes an adequate buffet

It is a very safe part of town a minute off the 101 highway. There is a mall about 5 miles away on the Main which is ok if there would be any crime it would be on the back streets near the mall. I worked there 12 days and felt safe. The 101 is close to piano beach and other beautiful beaches .

Hello there, We have a strict policy on this matter, if an issue is reported right away we don't take it lightly. Right away we offer to move rooms and offer to have all your clothing washed and take proper care of your bags as well. We then call a pest service and have them come out and service the room right away. We take pride in providing a great experience and giving our guest a restful nights sleep. We will do whatever is necessary to make things right. Thank you, Ricardo Herrera General Manager

Hi there, Concerning the bed bug review. We do take this matter very serious. We conduct a thorough inspection of the room if indeed a report of any bed bug is notified. We have a monthly preventative maintenance conducted to prevent any possible issues, a professional company is contracted and we spray every room and all public areas as well. We weren't able to find any evidence of bed bugs after conducting a thorough inspection. If in fact there was a bed bug problem you would be able to see the evidence on the sheets and on the mattresses, for assurance we call the pest control anyway to make sure we eliminate a possible bed bug issue. Rest assured you will have a great stay with us. We look forward to seeing you. Kind Regards, Ricardo Herrera General Manager

"Room facing the parking lot (front) are quiet."
"Request to be away from the street. Some rooms face the main road through town and it does NOT quiet down at night."
"First floor, avoid slow elevators"
"Get a room facing the parking lot - not the freeway"
"Avoid room 419 if you want some privacy."
US$116 - US$215 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
