Decided to stop off in Santa Maria on a long drive back down to LA and ran across this little motel. Full discloser: being vegan I was enamored by the "greenness" of the place but the room ended up being very nice. Sleek, calming decor, clean...just what I needed after a harsh drive. I slept like a baby in that bed. I pretty much woke up and hit the road so I can't review the shower, sorry haha. The owner / manager guy was...young but genuine and attentive (especially for a late drop in.) Normally not a reviewer but my stay here was a much needed pleasant relief to a long journey. Would stay again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It's one thing to claim you are environmentally friendly. It's another to prove it in everything you do. The Solaire Inn and Suites, the first entirely eco-friendly hotel in the Santa Maria California Region, does just that.Water is our most precious resource. Low flush toilets and low flow showerheads were installed in every guest room at the Solaire Inn and Suites. Our low flush toilets save over half a gallon of water with each flush compared to regular toilets. Native and drought landscape around the hotel also helps reduce water use.We believe that every bit helps, no matter how big or small. We make it easy for guests to recycle and conserve resources when they stay at Solaire inn & Suites. Recycle bins are located in every guest room and throughout the property. Complimentary newspapers are available in the lobby rather than delivered to every guest room, and guests are encouraged to re-use their bath towel.This summer, 100 LED lighting will be in place. In addition, we will also be offering an Electric Car Charging Station. The Solaire inn & Suites® hotel is conveniently located near several area attractions and local points of interest.
