This hotel recently disassociated from the Best Western chain and so far isn't doing a great job marketing itself. We couldn't find it on the internet and finally called to find out if they were still in business. Thankfully, they are, but there are some concerning signs that their successful business model may be changing. Overall, we still had the same decent room and mostly the same amenities: cooked to order breakfast, laundry facilities (now with detergent and dryer sheets provided), current release DVDs, full size refrigerator, microwave and DVD player in the room, ice cream and happy hour with high quality drinks - all gratis. However, the place was deserted when we last stayed, and the free happy hour was non-existent for 2 of the 3 days we were there. We were told that it now doesn't operate on weekends (!), with no explanation as to why. Probably there wasn't enough business the weekend we were there to justify staffing it. We hope the hotel is simply experiencing some transitional hiccups and will right itself. Yes, this is a 3 star hotel and nothing fancy, but it is a hugely better value than most hotels in the area, which charge twice as much for rooms that don't have the extras provided here. Lompoc is not a "chi-chi" destination but we appreciate the very good if not upscale restaurants, cool Wine Ghetto and un-touristy feel. The whole town shuts down by around 9PM and that's just fine by us. We'll watch a complimentary new release DVD with our free Ben and Jerry's and then sleep well in our quiet, comfortable room.
