“Good and bad”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

There a lot of things to see in the general area. We thoroughly enjoyed the Foxen Canyon and Santa Ynez/Los Olivos wine areas nearby. The but hotel has mixed reviews:

GOOD
Handy location
Clean
Nice rooms (the "king suite")
Breakfast

BAD
Very noisy right on Broadway; ask for other side of the building (but that is near 101)
Thinest towels I can remember

My husband and daughter stayed here two nights. It was perfect "in between" spot for visiting Cal State San Luis Obispo and UC Santa Barbara during their open house weekend.

Briefly:
Hotel and room very clean
Convenient, right off the freeway
Staff very welcoming
Breakfast very good (although my daughter mentioned they ran out of fruit early Sat AM)

The only slight negative is noise coming from the street. The AC was rather chilly (even set at 70 degrees) and they would have preferred to sleep with windows open but due to street noise chose not to.

Highly recommend this hotel when visiting San Luis Obispo (25 minutes away)

Room Tip: Perhaps there are rooms with quieter location, ask when checking in.

Nice new and clean Fairfield in in great central location. One of the top Fairfield inns I have been to. Very good staff maintenance of facility, etc. Nice location just off the freeway and some good restaurants nearby. Walmart neighborhood market 2 miles away for convenience. Would stay here again.

The Fairfield Suites was amazing. It was clean, and very well kept. The service was excellent. The whole staff was amazing and very helpful at breakfast. Every person that greeted us ask if they could help. The food was great. The location was great. They had a gym and a small indoor pool, which worked out quite nicely. Room service was awesome.

All the hotels in the area were booked due to a Wrestling tournament. However, after explaining our situation to the manager, they were able to accommodate. We were actually staying at another hotel, which was horrible, the Rose Garden Inn. We had to checked out, due to health conditions.

Bottom line the value was perfect for only a few more dollars you receive a high quality hotel with a high quality service. Thank you for everything Fairfield Suites.

Good clean hotel, friendly staff just a little far from things. Looks a lot better than many of the other hotels in the area, and it is easy to get to . Free breakfast and wi- fi. Will stay here again if I am in Santa Maria.

Room Tip: Good clean room, polite staff. Just kind of far from things.

We arrived late in the evening and were so warmly welcomed by the front desk. She not only gave recommendations for dinner, she had copies of the menus (and driving directions) that we could check out!

1bedroom suite was fairly spacious and there was space for the pullout sofa and pack n play in the living area for both our kids. The bathroom was not en suite to the bedroom, so we had to tiptoe to it in the middle of the night. But I imagine it would be considered a bonus if you were sharing the suite with adults, and they could go to the bathroom without traipsing through your sleeping area. The suite has a microwave and a fridge and a coffee maker, basic but perfectly adequate.

The bathroom is large, was spotless, and our kids loved the little rubber penguin they laid out! Fortunately the hotel also carried baby shampoo because we forgot that. We had absolutely no problem with noise even though we were on the ground floor and I usually cringe at the possibility of anyone waking my sleeping babies!

As others have mentioned, the entrance is easy to miss. You spot the property from the main street but you drive along and go "Eh??" Hang left and make as if you're entering from the back. It isn't that hard to find once you know what to expect.

We stayed for one night at Fairview Inn in Santa Maria. It was completely full on the Friday night we were there between Christmas and New Year's.

Plus
• Super-helpful staff who went the extra mile to ensure satisfaction. We arrived early, so we were allowed to put our bags in the conference room, unlocked by Ricardo. Our request for a room without connecting door was honored, and Ricardo, who seems to be able to do everything there, had a refrigerator brought to our room. We understand that soon all rooms will have refrigerators. All of the staff were extra-helpful.
• The wi-fi worked fine, but it was a bit of a nuisance to have to log in every time we went on line.
• They are proud of their hot breakfast which includes scrambled eggs, oatmeal, and sausages. With fresh fruit and a waffle-maker, the breakfast was good, but crowded, as noted below.
• Rooms were neat and clean. Bathrooms larger than usual.
• Quiet, little neighbor noise.
• Conveniently located near N. Broadway Highway 101 exit. Coming from the north, just after you pass the Fairfield Inn building, get into the middle lane used for turning and turn left on Roemer St.
• There is no stoplight because there is little traffic.
• Complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby replenished faithfully by Ricardo.
• Lots and lots of parking

Minus
• The breakfast room is a bit small for peak demand hours, probably because a lot of space is used for a wide sofa, a TV screen, and the space between the sofa and TV. The sofa could be replaced with tables, as in many other Fairfield Inns where we stayed. Also, extra tables could be set up near the coffee and tea area

The price makes this hotel a great value. We recommend the Fairview Inn as a very good deal in Santa Maria
