We stopped just for one night but ate at the Garden room and were pleasantly surprised with great service and great food. I had the filet and it was perfect! Salads were large and the bread was fantastic.

Had dinner twice and breakfast once from room service this time. All meals were perfectly prepared and delivered hot and tasty. My wife got prefect Eggs Benedict (not on the menu, so just ask if you want it). Didn't do the Mother's Day buffet, as all the buffets in Santa Maria have become very expensive and we could never eat... More

So glad we chose to have breakfast at our hotel on a Saturday morning. We were warmly greeted, given time to decide on the breakfast menu items or the buffet. All looked yummy. The buffet was top notch and so was the service. So glad we tried this, and we will return.

The array of food---lobsters, king crabs, clams, mussels, shrimps, prime rib, lamb, pork loin, salmon, a variety of salads and sides, plus a whole new room just for desserts was over the top and DELICIOUS! Great time was had by all.

The Inn is a very historic and quaint place to dine. The food and the menu are just so-so. Not bad, not great. The atmosphere is quiet and very nice.

Depending on when you go the service is generally good but at times very slow. My favorite is their beef dip sandwich served with choices of side dishes. I love the potato salad with the sandwich. Its not cheap but good. I also was there for their Thanksgiving brunch and would never do it again. Its very popular but very... More

I guess given its location this might be like THE one high class place nearby, and it certainly is charming and historic with its Victorian dining room, so maybe it is priced appropriately. They were gracious to our dog and we sat in the courtyard with its very Santa Barbara Mission style tiles and fountains so ambiance was a PLUS!... More

Stopped for lunch at 1:50 just before they stopped serving. They were glad to serve us and were very friendly and helpful. The meals and the bread were excellent.

We are locals that enjoy both an occasional stay at the hotel and more often eating in the Garden Room. We usually find the food and the service excellent, but this time although the food was up to par the service in a word "sucked" There were only 2 other tables in use when we arrived so it was not...
