I just love old historical building and the Santa Maria did not disappoint. Beautiful Victorian architecture. Rooms have been updated. But the older part of the hotel, the rooms are on the smaller size. Great value for the hotel. Great pit stop to break up your travel from Los Angeles to San Francisco.

Was really excited about booking this hotel last minute as we needed a place to stay from Big Sur and made it out after about a 2 hour drive given the descent price and good overall ratings. I have to admit that I was a little when we entered our room in the historical part of the hotel as the...

The staff at this hotel is friendly and really helpful- we were very cranky after several rough spots. The Inn has an interesting history and plenty of old photos and info to the right of the lobby. Much of the original 1917 hotel is preserved in the lobby and adjacent area. However, the rooms in the old part are substandard,...

I made a reservation for 1 night and they sent me to this very old part of the hotel that had this particular old smell which we honestly didn't like at all. Then the room was falling apart and I was very disappointed so I called the front desk and the girl told me that apparently I had booked for...

A little "antique" in its decor, but I thought it was charming. I had a comfortable stay at a reasonable price. Nice decorations for Christmas hung throughout the lobby. Not a lot of outlets by the bed, but I just needed one. The bathroom seems modern, though there isn't much sink space. Close to the main areas of town.

I'm so happy we staid here for one night on our road trip. Came from San Francisco and headed for LA. Loved the old style with the tap room, classic English pub environment. Room was generously large and we were four people in our family sharing the room.

The receptionists were professional, but a little aloof. They could have been just a little more warm and friendly. The room was okay for our one night stay. It was clean, quiet, old, and adequate for our needs, since we only slept there. The bed was not as comfortable as we would have liked. The price was around $187.00 for...

I reserved Santa Maria Inn at Priceline.com for my family's road trip from SF to LA. The outlook of this Inn is pretty historical, and there are two building, one taller building on the left side, another 2 floors building on the right side with a restaurant on the first floor.

We've stayed here several times.This is the first time in the historic part of the hotel. The rooms identify what famous stars stayed in them when the inn was a stop over on the way to Hearst Castle or San Francisco. It can be pricey depending on events in town.

I'm not sure I have ever done a negative review before, I try to be fair and talk about the positives, but, there's always a first time and this is it... Although this may be an historic property, it is so neglected dirty and shabby that it is way past its prime. Deferred maintenance is being kind. Do NOT accept...
